The Corioliss ceramic hair straightener and curling iron actually works as advertised. I have very curly, hard to straighten hair, that continually frizzes due to high humidity or in even a light breeze. When I use the Corioliss straightener, my hair remains straight until I wash it again, without the use of extra stying products like the flat iron sprays. There are no typical wild hairs, but a smooth finish to the straightened hair. Once my hair is straightened, if I feel like putting a little extra kick into it, the straightener also has a curling edge that allows me to put simple elegant curls in my hair, without having to change attachments or add something to the straightener. This straightener is small and convenient, which means that it will travel and store easily. You can find the product in some of your specialty stores, or order it online and the Corioliss website. The price could be considered a little steep, but the product is worth every dime.
