I purchased the Revlon Jade several years ago. It is still in perfect working condition. I use it right out of the shower or even on dry hair. The jade panels allow my hair to slide freely without pulling or tugging on my hair. Since I've swapped my old iron for this one, I've noticed my hair is no longer frizzy and I have no split ends anymore. It has a wonder 3 heat control and a swivel cord which is a handy 8-feet. It is a quick 30 second heat up and keeps the temperature at a steady degree. I've had this product for 5yrs now and I will never buy any other type except the Revlon Jade. It's well worth the cost! Revlon Professional Jade Hair Straightener, 1-1/2 can Help seal hair follicle for maximum protection and shine. This hair straightener turns the curliest, kinkiest hair into soft and straight hair. Here is what another customer had said. "This eally works better than my ceramic straightner. My mom bought it for me and I had never heard of these before. It is very attractive also, and the cord looks professionally and turns to make styling easier. I swearby this tool. It cuts heating time in half. It is very portable, it has wonderful hand placements (no burns on your hands) easy to clean jade plates. If mine decides to break down anytime soon, I will replace it with the same product.
