I was hesitant to buy the KWOF iron because I couldn't find any reviews, but the product and packaging made it look awesome. I'm so glad I went out on a limb. The 30 degree angle of the plates make it possible to get right to the root of the hair without burning your scalp. It has a super long cord (9 ft) and a rotating handle so your risk won't get tired. It has adjustable heat seatings that go up to 420 degrees. It also heats up very quickly. I'm not skilled enough to use a flat iron to make curls or waves, but I know this iron could be used to do that. Since using the KWOF, I've noticed my hair is much silkier compared to when I used my Chi. I'd highly recommend this flat iron to anyone with any type of hair.
