I personally own and use this straightener A LOT! I love that when you use it the flat iron lights up and glows in the dark. I also love that it glows 2 different colors, on the cooler less heat settings it glows an orange/yellow color. When you turn the heat on high it turns a very cool green color. This straightener works well and is simple to use. Has a long cord so if your outlet is far away you can still stand in front of the mirror. Works well of very curly, thick hair as well as thin hair. Will make your hair straight and silky as well as catch all the fly a ways that you may get. This straightener is also super durable I have had mine for more than 6 years and it still heats up and works great. I think the only negative thing I could even say about it, is that it gets build up pretty easy. I think that is all straightener though. If you clean it regularly and take care of it this piece of hair equipment is sure to last you a long long time.
