      Comments about NuMe Online Only Megastar Hair Straightener:

      I researched straighteners for months before I chose this one in March. I have short hair (bob) caucasian (thin) hair and tried to use it twice but my hair looks the same after using it. I wrote this off to me maybe not knowing how to use it. Today I thought I'd try to use it, and it's stuck on the highest setting and won't go below 450 degrees. I have barely touched the thing! No excuse for this poor quality. I feel supremely ripped off.

      Disappointed

      By Alicia

      from Kansas

      Comments about NuMe Online Only Megastar Hair Straightener:

      I truly thought I had did my research before purchasing this straightner. The reviews seemed very on point and were for the most part fairly good. But, this straightner did nothing for my hair. It looked all dried out and didn't stay straight longer than a few hours. It was also very hard to run through my hair in a way that's hard to describe. Definitely returned this and got a better one.

          Comments about NuMe Online Only Megastar Hair Straightener:

          I purchased the Megastar straight from NUME when they first came out approx 7 years ago. It's worked wonders since the day I got it & mine has just gotten old and is falling apart so I decided to purchase another one.

          The quality of the iron has changed COMPLETELY. I contacted NUME and they tried to tell me I was wrong but I even sent them a side by side of my old iron versus the new one. The plates had a huge gap... causing snagging, pinching, and ripped my hair out. In addition, the new iron was literally buzzing very loud. I initially thought I had a defective iron but swapped it out for a new one & had the exact same issues. Ended up doing a full return after all of the hassle and am looking into the T3 iron. I have fine-medium hair so I like having the heat temp settings. I've also tried the babyliss iron & wasnt thrilled with it but still a good iron!

            I live in South Texas and with summer around the corner the heat and humidity are no joke. I can feel the difference with this straightener all through the day. It really does help with my frizz. I can feel the smoothness in my hair the whole day not just the first couple of hours.

                    This flat iron did not meet expectations at all!!!
                    It makes my hair frizz 10 minutes after straightening it and I hadn't even gone outside yet.
                    It dies in less 5 month. I bought this item in December 2017 and won't even turn on anymore.
                    I would not recommend this product!!!

                      I've always used chi before this and I am sold! Usually I have to go over my hair 5-6 times each strand but with this one I go over 1-2 times and my hair is perfectly straight and smooth! Straightest my hair has ever been and I am obsessed with straightening my hair and very picky this straightener is amazing !! Highly recommended (I straighten my curly hair every single day)

                        The other nume straightners say "not recommended for thin or damaged hair" This particular straightener doesn't say that in the details. So would this version be okay for thin hair or should I go with something different ?

                          The tools made of titanium are not usually recommended for thin or damaged hair. However, the Megastar is made with tourmaline ceramic which is safe to use on all hair types, including fine hair. So this would be a good option for your hair type :)

                          For fine long hair, I would recommend that you start at 275 and work your way up if you need to. Ideally, it should be hot enough to achieve the desired results in one pass but not too hot to where your hair is damaged.
