Rated 4.82 out of 5 stars
I've always been intrigued to try a 1.5 inch straightener. Typically, I have always used the standard 1 inch straightening iron. My hair is long, bleached, damaged, fine, very frizzy, and wavy. When I straighten my hair, my hair typically becomes frizzy shortly after styling. I washed and dried my hair as usual. Before straightening my hair, I applied the same heat protectant that I regularly use. I used the heat setting 4 because the instruction guide states that heat settings 1-4 work best for fine hair. After sectioning my hair, I ran a comb through the section before running the straightener through. I am able to take larger sections than I usually do because the straightening plates are both longer and wider than a standard 1 inch straightener. This has significantly sped up the time it takes to style my hair. After straightening my hair, it looked extremely sleek and shiny. The ceragloss plates helped my hair to remain sleek and straight for DAYS after styling. Even though this was gifted by T3 Micro, the before and after photo speaks for itself and this is definitely my new favorite straightening iron!
I just got this and it feels extremely cheap. I used to have Chi's all the time and in a short time they would break, or you could drop them one time and they would break. This feels the exact same. I will be returning and getting the more expensive one. I am not sure why this has so many good reviews. The button feels like cheap wobbly plastic. I wasn't even sure how to turn it off. I don't want to have to look at the instructions for how to properly turn it off. My other T3 made sound like angels singing when it came on and when it turned off. I pressed the off and on button as long as I did the other one I had but it did not turn off. I am trusting my instincts before it's too late to return.

This hair straightener is amazing. It states one pass straightening and that is a fact. I have coarse curly hair and I have never found a straightener that could make it salon straight until this one. It takes 10 mins to straighten my hair. Best purchase ever.

I'm glad this one is wider, wish it was even wider because I have a ton of thick hair. I bought this because my previous T3 flat iron was going out. I had it forever though, lasted way longer than all the CHIs I had. Hope this one lasts just as long!

It juat stopped working
Casey from Seattle, WA
This flat iron worked great…for all of 4 months. Its stopped turning on and I can't seem to get in touch with the company for a warrantable replacement. There are much better and more reliable options for much less. Look elsewhere!
YAM from Colorado
Excellent iron if you want straight hair or curls.
Helen from undisclosed
The iron is too thick in body and to curvy which prevents to straighten hair fully.
Jill from Baytown, TX
Love love love this flat iron. Straighten smoothly. Lomg cord. Not heavy like the Babyliss
Steph from CT
This is a great tool. Its easy to straighten or add a little curl to my hair. My hair is less frizzy since using this! A little challenging to figure out the heat settings initially but I like that you are able to adjust the heat.
JLN from Idaho
Got this for a gift for my daughter. She already has the T3 1inch flat iron and loves it.
Melanie from undisclosed
Wonderful hair iron for thick, long hair. It you section off your hair, one pass maybe two, will straighten it.

All I can say is wish I bought this years ago. I have thick wavy hair & with the T3 Lucea 1.5 my hair has never looked healthier. My hair is now shiny and smooth and stays that way all day. Way to go

I bought this Flat Iron less than a year ago.. I absolutely LOVE IT!!! It's The Best Flat Iron I've ever owned.. One pass does the job.. My hair is left so silky and smooth after each use!!! The price is totally worth paying for this product!!!
However, just this week, it has stopped working.. It won't power ON anymore...I've had to go back to my old Flat Iron (Different Brand i.e BaByliss...) and my hair is NOT liking it..
I'm Just curious if this is normal for this model??

Bought a couple of months ago - Like the different heat settings and it does make my hair straight and smooth. It is a little on the heavier size and the clamping takes a little more of a squeeze (so my hand gets a little tired after a few minutes of use) but to be expected for a straightening iron. One less star is because of the cost. Hindsight being 20/20, on the fence to spend as much as I did.
Dee from Washington, DC
One the easiest flat irons to curl with and I've tried plenty. For straightening, I have kinky hair and two passes gets me bone straight.
Rachel from Lansing, MI
I have waist length very wavy/curly hair and i adore this tool! I was holding off buying it for so long and im glad I finally did! It really is a "one pass" straightener. It curls the ends beautifully when I want to. So sleek and no frizz. It also doesn't pull my ends and hurt like others have in the past! Buy it!!

Already own the T3 Singlepass and was very happy with it. However, my hair is now long so I purchased the T3 Lucea 1.5. It heats up very quickly and does an excellent job straightening my wavy hair. The reason I gave it a 4 star rating was the placement of the on/off switch. I find I accidentally turn it off when using. The switch is located on the outside of the handle. The switch on the Singlepass is located on the plate side of the flat iron.

i bought my straightener a month ago and i turned it on this morning to straighten my hair and it only goes up to the 4th dot and isn't heating up as fast as it usually does. and all the dots no longer turn on! does anybody know why!?
ariel from providence, ri
i bought this straighter because it looked high end & thought it would work well. i've been a conair girly since 6th grade but wanted to treat myself. i love how i can add wave to my hair with this iron rather than just straightening it flat. i have very fine hair and the heat settings are great! however, i find that this straightener pulls A LOT, mostly towards the ends. i have to lighten my grip as i get further down to not break my hair off after every pass. definitely thought it would preform better for the price.

Leaves my hair full of body! The style doesn't revert either. Even in high humidity that I live in Louisiana. I have fine curly hair. African/European/Indian I'm considered creole. A little moisture would cause any style to without hairspray to end lol! But not with this!
J. Morfin from Conroe, TX
By far the best iron I have owned. Leaves my hair smooth, shiny and frizz free. Impressed indeed!
Joshua f from Wichita Falls tx
My wife said it was great. I've been upgrading all of her stuff with the t3 brand
ConsumerA from Denver
This flatiron is attractive but the heat settings are unreliable. I have damaged hair and it pulled my hair rather then smoothly straighten. It did not work for me.
Breana from Antioch, Ca
As stated in the title I have textured hair that's very course and thick. This flat iron exceeded my expectations and made my hair super silky, smooth, and straight without damaging it (I used setting/light 5). Had it over a month, in love with this iron!
Vicki from Texas
I bought this to replace my Chi babyliss pro as it rusted. This did great on my thick, wavy, coarse hair (shoulder length) but because of the placement of the power button I kept turning it off while I was using it. There wasn't any other way for me to hold the iron to avoid doing this. I am exchanging it today.
Erica N from Houston, TX
Overall I like the T3 1.5" straightener. I am able to create waves as well as straighten my hair very quickly. It heats up very quickly as well. My main complaint is that it turns off repeatedly while I'm doing my hair. I can't tell if its because I'm accidentally hitting the button or if its just turning off? Either way, I've never had this issue with any other curling iron or straightener so it shouldn't be happening with this one.
