      Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish 1 1/2'' Flat Iron:

      The only reason I gave this 4 stars was because I haven't used it that much yet. So far so good though. I am used to buying pricier flat irons so my expectations weren't too high for this one. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much shine and how smooth it made my hair. This isn't a super fancy high end flat iron but it does what it is supposed to and does a great job!

      Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish 1 1/2'' Flat Iron:

      I have been straightening my hair for years and years and have not found a straightener that works as well as this one! I have tried Chi, Babyliss and countless other super expensive straighteners and this by far is the best I've purchased. I was hesitant at first, but so happy I gave it a try. My hair has never looks so good... So soft and straight! I have super wavy, frizzy hair and I am amazed how east and fast it is too straighten my super long hair. The only negative I have to say is where the button placement is. However, even after I think i have changed the setting while straightening, I have not.

      Give this straightener a try, you won't regret it!

          Comments about John Frieda Sleek Finish 1 1/2'' Flat Iron:

          The flat iron probably would work really well if it would stay on during the hair straightening process. The controls are designed very poorly. My first reaction was that I must be doing something wrong but after reading other reviews I realized I wasn't the only one with this problem. A 10 minute test would have told them this design was not effective. The unit shuts off at the slightest touch to the buttons...the exact place you hold it while straightening your hair.

              Horrible design! They put the buttons all along the handle where you hand grips when holding it so every time I try to use it I am constantly turning it on and off and changing the temperature settings. I dont understand how they even released this product without testing it to see it it can actually work like its supposed to.

                    I figured being a product by John Freida it would be exceptional, but not even close. It pulled and snagged my hair more than a cheap straightener.

                            I bought the flatiron with the 1 inch plates and have used it once. The temperature controls are located in the same position as this flatiron. It's awful! I was constantly accidentally turning the thing on or off, or increasing or decreasing the heat. Either way you hold the iron, your thumb hits the control, or your index finger. They really need to change the design of this product. I hate it! Other than that, it works fine and looks pretty cool.

                              So I've had this flat iron for 3 years and use it every single day I use it on the highest setting and even then I still have really nice and healthy hair! this is a truly great straightener you don't need to spend over $100 for a good straightener because this one is amazing and will work just as good as those expensive ones. I have absolutely no complaints because it's just the most amazing flat iron so if you're considering purchasing I have no doubt you'll love it
