I am a big fan of the Hot Tools Professional Helen of Troy Flat Iron. I am a 30 year old female with natural curly hair. The Helen of Troy has been the only flat iron which I have found success with. It has an On/Off Button and Numerical Heat Index which allows you to control the temperature for the iron. It produces heat quickly inhibiting long waiting periods. The cord is 8 foot which is helpful when mirrors and plugs are not positioned in ideal locations. The cord does seem to kink after a while. This product allows you to get close to your hair roots and aquire the fast painless straightening. The large straightening head increases speed allowing you to straighten more hair per clinch. The head of the iron does get very hot and can cause discomfort in fingers if you are not careful. The cool down period is prolonged making if difficult to "pack up and clean up" quickly. I do recommend this product at a great price for those looking for a reliable and consistant hair care flat iron.
