Basics of the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener

Today I’d like to share with you, my review of the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener. It’s an “ultra-thin” flat iron made of Titanium which is a great “conductor of heat.”This means your flat iron can remain at high temperature and won’t cool down or become too hot to for you to hold. The “Nano Titanium” the straightener is made of has “far-infrared heat” that “penetrate[s]” your hair. The straightener’s Titanium plates also have a width of “1.5 inches.” As well, this flat iron is gentle to your hair won’t cause your hair heat damage of

The “Nano Titanium” the straightener is made of has “far-infrared heat” that “penetrate[s]” your hair. The straightener’s Titanium plates also have a width of “1.5 inches.” As well, this flat iron is gentle to your hair won’t cause your hair heat damage of any kind.

Another thing I like about this straightener’s outside shell is that it’s made from “Ryton” which is extremely light and feels weightless in your hands. Ryton also is resistant to high heat, so you won’t burn your hands while flattening your hair with this Wet-To-Dry Straightener.

Benefits of the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener

Also, the BabylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straighter allows you to have “ultra-shiny, pin-straight” hairstyles with “one pass” of your flat iron through a section of hair. Note, that you can’t have dripping wet hair when you flat iron it. However, your hair should be damp or towel dried.

Also, the Wet-To-Dry flat iron allows your straightened hairstyle to last for more than a day; especially, if you have naturally curly hair. Also, the iron’s “slim styling” means that you’ll remain comfortable while flattening your hair. You won’t receive any cramps in your hands or arms because the flat iron is too heavy.

Moreover, my favorite thing about the BaBylissPRO Wet-to-Dry Nano Straightener is that it has “5-inch extended plates” which mean you can flattening your hair quickly; even if your hair is thick like mine! It also has “50 heat settings, and/or” and the heat of the flat iron goes as high “450°F.”

How to Use the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener 

To use the BabBulissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener, simply “glide” it “over your and towel dried hair. As you straighten your hair, the flat iron will “releas[e] steam” that is “generated by” your damp hair. The steam will come out “through vents in the” titanium “plates” out of the straightener’s ‘Ryton’ casing.

Where to Buy the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener

The BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener can be bought on Amazon. You can also find it at Target or Walmart. Take a peek at our blog post: Best Hair Straightener for Every Budget before you decide to make a purchase.

Vital Warranty Information & More FAKES on Amazon!

Additionally, on Amazon, the BaBylissPro Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener has a warranty that is only provided by BaByliss (the more expensive brand of Conair). This warranty provides you ” a 3-year warranty against all defects or faults in manufacturing or materials.’ However, to “benefit from the warranty,” the “original proof of purchase (sales ticket or receipt)” is required. It must be “attached to the warranty slip.”

On the warranty slip, you must also include your full contact information. As well, the “warranty does not cover damage resulting from misuse, falls, dismantling, or repair by unauthorized persons.” The BaByliss warrant on Amazon, also notes that normal “repairs or exchanges” during the warranty period “will not affect the expiry date” of the warranty itself.

If you purchase the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Straightener on Amazon, you might want to consider that the “Manufacturers’ warranties may not apply in all cases. The warranty is reliant on factors such as the use of the product, where the product was purchased, or who sold the product

This leads me to believe that for BaByliss straighteners, this BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Straightener, in particular, should be purchased elsewhere online or at a retailer. If you purchase your flat iron at the physical store, at least, you can read the box and see exactly what you’re buying.

This is the downfall of purchasing appliances at some online. However, you might want to read our Flat Iron Buying Guide first as this might help you make better online purchases.

Recommended Hair Products for the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener

Heat Protectants with Smooth & Shine

AG Hair Products: Smooth Firewall Argan Shine & Flat Iron Spray

AG Smooth Firewall Argan Shine & Flat Iron Spray

A great product to use, especially with Wet-To-Dry flat irons, is by AG Hair Products and is a  Smooth Firewall Argan Shine & Flat Iron Spray which leaves your hair with shiny and smooth will putting a “protective barrier” between your hair and your straightener.

Moreover, this AG Hair Firewall Argan Shine & Flat Iron Spray is wonderful at “preventing” your hair from breaking. It also works to control “unruly hair and flyaways” and the volume from leaving your hairstyle. As well, this product protects your hair up to “300 º F” which may or may not work for you, depending on how thick your hair is. It’s a product I enjoyed very much due to the shine factor.

S Factor Flat Iron Shine Spray

S Factor Flat Iron Spray

Another option to consider is S Factor Flat Iron Shine Spray. I’m a huge fan of their products and always find they work well. This particular ‘S Factor’ Flat Iron spray is a “heat defender spray” that works the heat of your straightener throughout your hair, so it never concentrates and damages one particular area when you are styling it.

As well, this product helps to condition your hair. It leaves it looking healthy, smooth, and shiny with the product’s “ultimate thermal protection.” This is a wonderful shine spray to use if you use your straightener almost every day or second day. Moreover, this would depend on how often you wash your hair.

‘It’s 10:’ Silk Express Miracle Silk Smoothing Balm

It’s 10: Silk Express Silk Smoothing Balm

Lastly, a slightly cheaper product to is from ‘It’s 10,’ a brand I also like. Their Silk Express Silk Smoothing Balm is fantastic to use to hold in “silkiness” while “reduc[ing] frizz.” It acts as a heat protectant from your flat iron, and cuts your” hair drying time in half, whether you use a blowdryer, or use the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener on your damp hair.


BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener Reviews

The Stats

On Amazon.com out of 358 reviews, the average was 4.1 stars out of 5. As well, on Amazon, 68 percent of buyers gave the BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straightener 5 stars and 16 percent of people gave the flat iron 3 or 4 stars. An almost equal amount of people of 15 percent, gave the straightener 1 or 2 stars. I imagine many of these unsatisfied customers on Amazon gave the flat iron a low review because they received fake BaByliss straighteners.

Reviews: Good & Bad

I feel unsure about purchasing a straightener from BaByliss on Amazon as I keep reading many reviews from customers who say things such as this woman:”FAKE FAKE FAKE!! Don’t buy this! It’s an imitation, it broke like three days after I bought it. I went to a store” to buy the authentic flat iron” and “they assured me it was fake. Please look on the plug and if it has a code that’s how you tell it’s a real BaByliss” flat iron.

Besides many complaints about receiving fake irons, one mom on Amazon commented that she “sent” the straightener” off to college with [her] daughter and bought another one.” Tthe mom notes she used her replacement straightener of the same kind, “less than a dozen times and it stopped working.”There was “no power” when she plugged it in and she thinks she received ” a dud or lemon of a product.”

While it was difficult to find a good review on Amazon.com due to all the fakes, one woman wrote that her “hair stylist recommended [she] buy this brand since she uses it.” She said she “was hoping not to spend too much” on a flat iron so she is “very happy with this purchase,” The flat iron “heats up to different temps” and has an on/off button” and the”cord is super long.” She would ‘recommend doing small pieces” of your hair at a time because then you only have to run the straightener through it once.

Final Thoughts

While I’m a big fan of cutting out blow-drying in my haircare routine, I’m not absolutely sure about this flat iron. BaByliss usually has great products and I’ve had success returning faulty to them. Nevertheless, it’s difficult to tell on Amazon how many BaBylissPRO Wet-To-Dry Nano Straighteners were fakes, and which ones were faulty.

As a whole, I wouldn’t recommend purchasing this flat iron on Amazon because of how many fake products people received. I would go to another retailer online or in-store. As well, I  would ensure I purchase this straightener at a place where you’re not on your own when it comes to returning the straightener through BaByliss alone. When I had to return a BaByliss product in the past, it was much easier for me to this through the online retailer than on my own.

HSI Professional Flat Iron Review

HSI Professional 1” Glider Flat Iron

Today I’ll be reviewing the HSI Professional 1″ Glider Flat Iron. It’s a fantastic hair straightener with a “Digital LCD Temperature Control” that can heat as high as “450°F” and as low as “250°F.” The straightener is a ‘ceramic’ flat iron with “tourmaline plates” and a feature called “advanced” infrared heat technology.” It comes with a glove to protect your hand as the flat iron’s casing does heat to a high temperature.

HSI Professional Flat Iron
HSI Professional Flat Iron

Additionally, the HSI Professional straightener on Amazon.com also comes with a bottle of Argon Oil leave in conditioner (5 mL) to help your hair remain moisturized even while using the iron. The HSI Professional Flat Iron also is shaped specifically so you can “flip” or curl your hair with the 1-inch plates. Also, it’s an inexpensive and the perfect do-almost-anything hair styling tool for any woman. For additional advice on budget-friendly flat irons read Best Hair Straighteners For Every Budget.

How It Works!

To turn on the flat iron, ensure you hold the power button down for around ” 3 seconds.” This will turn your straightener on and permit it to heat up. HSI “boasts” that their Professional Flat Iron is a must-have beauty tool that has a “revolutionary ceramic ionic system” to ensure your hair is well hydrated, sleek, and glossy. The heat setting of the straightener can be managed with (+) and (-) signs on the iron for increasing or decreasing the heat setting. For the 450° heat setting, a separate button needs to be pushed.

Moreover, the flat iron has a “360°” cord that swivels, allowing for an “ergonomic” design. This means even women who have difficulty straightening or curling coarse or thick hair won’t have a problem using this iron. They will only have to pass the flat iron through a section of hair once.

Versatility of the HSI Professional Flat Iron

As well the HSI Professional has 100 percent “ceramic tourmaline plates” ensuring that your hair remains super-shiny, while the straighteners “curved-edges” allow for curls and flat ironing too. Your hair is guaranteed not to become frizzy and will stay glossy and straight when you need it to with this flat iron.

Also, the HSI Professional Flat Iron’s versatility means you need only one tool to “instantly transfor[m]” your mane into beautiful frizz-free straight hair or long-lasting waves and curls. As well, the straightener has “dual voltage, excellent” so wherever in the world you use the HSI Professional Flat Iron, there’s no need to buy expensive plug-ins or new straighteners while traveling abroad.

HSI claims that although hair trends and styles change with fashion, their straightener will never go out of style. However, if you need a flat iron that comes in different plate lengths, you can also read up on the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Straightener Review to find flat irons in a 1-1/2-inch and 2-inch size as well as a 1-inch plate size.

Where to Purchase!

Additionally, I would recommend purchasing this flat iron off of Amazon.com as it has outstanding reviews and no instances where the straightener was considered a fake (that I could find). On Amazon, the iron sells for around $80.00. If you cannot locate it on Amazon, it’s also available on Walmart.com.

Nonetheless, on Amazon, the straightener can be purchased wit excellent hair products from Morroccainoil to keep your healthy and moisturized while using the HSI Professional Flat Iron.

Hair Products from Morroccanoil

Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

Moroccanoil Repair Shampoo and Conditioner

The Repair Shampoo and Conditioner from Moroccanoil comes as a set on Amazon. The shampoo promises to repair hair, to be “moisture-balancing,” and to aid hair that’s been weakened due to hair tools. It’s full of a “Keratin-enriched” and “argan oil-infused” mixture that rebuilds hair and improves its flexibility.

Furthermore, it’s the perfect shampoo for color damaged, chemically processed, or heat damaged hair. The shampoo’s unique formula includes “lavender, rosemary, chamomile, and jojoba extracts” that ensure your hair smells wonderful and is nourished from plant-based products. Also, it’s a shampoo free of parabens and sulfates.

Morrocanoil Hair Itense Hydrating Hair Mask

Moreover, the Repair Conditioner also promises to hydrate and condition dry hair and provide your hair with “texture,” flexibility, shine, and workability. It’s infused with “anti-oxidant-rich argan oil” and other ingredients to nourish and replenish your hairs moisture. If the conditioner isn’t enough, there is also an Intense Hydrating Mask which works similarly but is richer with “linseed extract, moisture-attracting glycerin,” and a thick creamy formula for intense moisture and softness.

Moroccanoil Root Boost

Awesome Moroccanoil Styling Products

Additionally, an awesome Moroccanoil hair styling product to use while straightening your hair is their Moroccanoil Root Boost as no one, even flat ironing their hair, wants roots that are flat as well. This product will give your roots volume while the rest of your hair is flat (or curled). Another one of my favorite products is the Moroccanoil Mousse because it’s light and fluffy and provides hair with bounce and volume so your curls or straightened hairs are light and not weighed-down and flat. Together these products are a dynamic-duo.

HCT Professional Flat Iron Reviews

The Stats!

Moroccanoil Root Boost

On Amazon, out of 2,707 reviews, 77 percent of buyers gave the HCT Professional a 5-star rating and 12 percent gave it 4 stars. For 2 or 3 star ratings only 3 percent of buyers gave it 2 or 3 stars, respectively. A mere 5 percent rated the straightener with 1 star.

Good Reviews

A woman who rated the flat iron with 5 stars commented that she has “been using this flat iron for over 2 years now and that’s a record for” her as she is usually “always looking for something better.” She writes that she’s “spent just as much money on previous flat irons” and it “wasn’t as though” she’d never “purchased” a “cheap one” such as the HCT Professional before. She notes she’s “happy with this flat iron and it’s still going strong” and that has had good “bang for” her buck.”She has no “plans on changing” her straightener until it dies. Many of the good reviews said much the same thing as most buyer stores were satisfied with the flat iron.

Bad Reviews

Quite surprisingly, bad reviews on the HCI Professional Flat Iron were difficult to find. Unless the product was purchased defective, to begin with, everyone was happy with the flat iron and its price point. All defective flat irons were easily replaced for ones that worked well and buyers loved their replacements. Any flat irons that have stopped working, even within 18 months were also replaced by Amazon or HCI.

Final Thoughts

A glove that comes with the Flat Iron as to not Burn Your Hand!
A glove that comes with the Flat Iron as to not Burn Your Hand!

This is a straightener I would purchase myself. Not only is the price great, all around, the reviews are awesome and the flat iron is both designed to curl and straighten hair well. In no other straightener, I’ve reviewed has 77 percent of 2,707 buyers recommended a flat iron. As well, there doesn’t seem to be any issues with fakes with this specific HSI Professional Flat Iron on Amazon. Any straighteners purchased that were defective were also replaced quickly, even when an iron broke after a year and a half.

I’m hesitant with ceramic irons, having thick hair myself and a little luck with them. However, this one seems to be the real-deal, works fantastic, and is a great purchase that won’t leave you disappointed for the price you paid.

Croc Turboion Classic Straightener Review

Essential Details of the Croc Turboion Classic Straightener

Today, I would like to share with you, my review of the Croc Turboion Classic Straightener. This flat iron has “1-1/2 inch [black]Titanium ceramic plates” and has a leading edge “‘nano-fine’ ceramic” heating. It also has a “retro-futuristic hair reconstructor and reconditioner” that uses “infrared heat.” This lengthens the time colored or dyed hair needs before root touch-ups or redying. Additionally, the flat iron has “dual plate technology” that ensures it heats quickly and cools quickly too.

It also has a “retro-futuristic hair reconstructor and reconditioner” that uses “infrared heat.” This lengthens the time colored or dyed hair needs before root touch-ups or redying. Additionally, the flat iron has “dual plate technology” that ensures it heats quickly and cools quickly too.

As well, the straightener has a maximum temperature of”450 º F ” and is equipped with a “silver-coated dual cover.” This means the temperature of the handle and casing of the straightener will not burn or hurt your hands while using it to iron your hair. One of my pet peeves is picking up a straightener that has a casing (outside) that is too hot!

More Vital Details

Croc Turboion Classic Straightener

Furthermore. I love that the length of the Croc Straightener’s power cord is ” 9 feet” and it has a ” 360 º swivel.” The flat iron’s ‘dual plate’ silver-coating means that it “maintain[s] even heat” while you iron your hair. The straightener also has Titanium plates which for me, always work better than pure ceramic plates.

As well, this flat iron has a digital temperature setting with “25 heat settings” from ” 200 º F to 450 º F.” It keeps your hair “silky, and “shin[y]” too. Also, it’s a sturdy and dependable flat iron that allows you to maintain straight hair for the entire day. It has the most “advanced Ceramic Technology” out there and is the beauty industries “first” “environment[ally]-friendly” flat iron. To me, the environmentally-friendly aspect is a plus.

Design of Croc Turboion Classic Straightener

Comfortable to Hold & Light Weight!

What’s unique about this straightener is its authentic design. The casing is thinner “at the base than at the top” of the iron. This means that the area where you hold the iron is smaller. This is wonderful, especially if you’re a woman with smaller hands. Also if you’re searching for a straightener that isn’t too heavy to hold while ironing your hair, I think this is a good option.

Also, this straightener is not a bulky despite its Titanium plates and special casing. The Titanium plates work to make your hair smooth, and the plates don’t ever chip. Ceramic plates “can often chip.” Nonetheless, along with the Titanium plates, the light-weight of this straightener adds to its design quality.

Titanium Plates

Furthermore, the 1-1/2-inch Titanium plates from the Croc Turboion Classic Straightener are excellent for women with long and thick hair. But if you have shorter hair that you like to straighten, you’re going to need a thinner flat iron. Even longer and thicker hair might require a thinner iron depending on your type of hair. Instead, you might read our review for the MumaBella Keratin Dual Touch Hair Straightener Review.

As well, the flat irons shape is designed so that “the heating elements” remains “far away from your hands.” This means there is less chance you’ll end up burning yourself.

Memory Features

This straightener’s “digital temperature setting” is useful because it ‘remembers’ your previous settings, so you don’t have to set your preferred temperature each time you use it. Remembering to set the temperature isn’t hard, but occasionally, it is easy to forget if you’re multitasking while styling your hair.

This is problematic if your hair isn’t straightening because the temperature setting you’re using is too low. As well, it can also be problematic if you’ve been using a temperature setting that is too high for thinner hair. It can cause unwanted damage to your mane.

Croc Turboion Classic Straightener HairStyling Tips

Not Shaped For Curls!

Flat Iron Curls

If you’re a person who wants to use you Croc Straightener for curling your hair, you’ll need to find a thinner iron. For a wavy or more defined curl styles, this Croc straightener doesn’t work well. Since the Titanium plates are “wider than the rest of the iron,” there’s “little” or no room to make curls except if you’ve hair that is long. Nevertheless, if you “intend” to only flat iron your hair, the larger 1-1/2-inch plates will be fantastic. You can also check-out the CHI Original Pro Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Straightener Review. 

Perfect for Course Hair!

Since this flat iron gives a “combination of consistent heat” and has Titanium plates, it’s a ‘game changer’ for women with coarse hair. Also, it’s super for thick or coarse hair because of its high-heat settings. As well as, the fact the iron maintains its hot temperature (sometimes too much!!).

Furthermore, if you have hair that’s hard to flat iron, you’ll be more than pleased with this straightener.  It saves me a lot of time because I don’t have to repeatedly flatten each section of hair many times. Pulling the straightener through each section of your hair once is enough for a straight glossy finish. This is the kind of finish you and I both want!

Croc Turboion Classic Straightener: Products to Use

Bumble & Bumble Straight Shampoo & Conditioner

The Bumble and Bumble Straight Line was created with advanced “Concentrate-straight Technology” that helps your hair keep its natural “integrity.” It’s the perfect product line to use with the Croc Turboion Classic Straightener.

Moreover, Bumble & Bumble Straight Shampoo and Conditioner allow you to alter your hair’s “straightness” and “increase” the “manageability” of your hair while reducing frizz. All Bumble & Bumble hair styling products are “free of formaldehyde, cysteine, and lye.” They’re also “safe” for any colored hair.

As well, the Bumble & Bumble Straight Shampoo is an “ultra-mild cleanser” that gets rid of stray hairs while making hair both smooth and soft. It’s also the “ideal shampoo” that can “tam[e] curly, thick, unmanageable,” and “unruly hair.”

Moreover, the Bumble & Bumble Straight Conditioner is a light conditioner that works to condition your hair well. It “manage[s] unruly hair,” curly hair, and frizzy hair. It also provides your hair with a with a smooth, silky texture. The conditioner gives hair “body and movement” despite being a conditioner for straight hair.

Bumble & Bumble Hairstyling Products

Bumble & Bumble Straight Blow Dry is a “light-weight” and “high-activated” styling balm that provides smooth, healthy-looking hair. It gives your hair “movement” and is “non-greasy” and light. It also “tames flyaways” and leaves hair without frizz. The product protects your hair from “heat-styling and humidity” and is perfect for “curly, thick, coarse, or unmanageable hair.”

Bumble & Bumble Spray de Mode Flexible Hold Hairspray

One last, Bumble & Bumble product I l like to spray on your after you’ve finished styling it with a Croc Turboion Classic Straightener is Bumble & Bumble Spray de Mode Flexible Hold Hairspray. It’s not from their ‘Straight’ line, but the reason I like it is that after you are done ironing your hair, you spray this on top, and it will gently hold your hairstyle in place. I won’t be too heavy and ‘mold’ your hair as some other hairsprays do.

As well, this Bumble & Bumble hairspray is a “multidimensional hairspray” that is a flexible or workable hairspray with “exceptional memory.” It can also be brushed out of your hair for a brand new style the next day. It also sprays a “fine” and “even mist” leaving your hair with a dry finish. This keeps your straightened hair in place until you want to change your style.

Croc Turboion Classic Straightener Reviews

The Stats

On Amazon.com the Croc Turboion Classic Straightener had only four reviews with five stars each. However, looking at the ratings on other websites to give you a better idea of the flat iron’s rating with more reviews I found an average of 3.8 out of 5 was given for this straightener. As well, “76 percent” of those who purchased the straightener would repurchase it, but the price was considered relatively expensive for a straightener.

Good Reviews!

One woman with medium thick, blond, wavy hair, said that she “love[d]” this flat iron and the fact that it came in hot pink and black. She said it straightened her hair in “one pass” and that her wavy hair “stays straight for the day.” Also, she said the plates “glide super-smoothly” and the digital temperature setting made it easy to choose the temperature she required. She also noted that the flat iron heated quickly.

A second, purchaser of this flat iron who said her hair type was  “thick, coarse ringlets” commented that she was able to “straighten [her] hair” in “15 minutes before going out” with this Croc straightener. She wrote that her hair remains flat but she “still ha[s] to spend [an] hour blow drying” her hair beforehand. For her, the ironing process is faster with this iron, and her curly hair appears straight right after flat ironing, no waiting required. Her only concern is that the straightener heats up too fast and she’s “afraid it will damage [her] hair more than” her old ceramic flat iron. For this reason, she uses it only on special occasions.

Her only concern is that the straightener heats up too fast and she’s “afraid it will damage [her] hair more than” her old ceramic flat iron. For this reason, she uses it only on special occasions.

Bad Reviews!

Furthermore, below are some negative reviews I read about the Croc Straightener. One woman said to not “waste your money on the Croc infrared flat iron” as it isn’t “reliable.” She also notes the straightener is a “very expensive and doesn’t last” as she “paid $210 for this flat iron” and even though she could’ve bought it for $169, on Amazon, she read that Croc wouldn’t honor the warranty if she purchased it through Amazon them.

Moreover, this woman wrote that when buying her straightener from Croc, the flat iron only lasted three months anyways and Croc wanted money to ship the flat iron back to her after they agreed to fix it. By the time she received her flat iron back, it had been “2 months, own ” and Croc would not “extend” t arranty for her new straightener.

One last review commented that her Croc Turbion Classic Straightener “began producing smoke” and “the plates melted off” and “became dislodged.” This lady noted that ” [b]lack glue was oozing from the product” and she was scared the “entire” straightener would “catch fire” based on how much this Croc flat iron was “melting” and smoking. She was most afraid that the “outcome” would’ve been worse if her hair caught on fire or her bedroom.

Final Thoughts

Although many expensive flat irons such as the Croc Turboion Classic Straightener are cheaper on Amazon.com, I’ve found through researching several straighteners, that many customers receive fakes. It is ‘up for grabs’ who receives actual brand name straighteners, and who will receive ‘look a-likes.’ Nevertheless, all reviews on Amazon and some on other sites were pleased with this straightener.

However, I was scared reading about how hot Croc Straightener could become. It’s a frightening to think it could become so hot the iron could melt and smoke. If you’re a person with thicker or longer hair, this flat iron may not be the right flat iron for you as at high temperatures there is a greater probability your flat iron will melt, damage something your house, or start or your hair or house on fire.

Overall, this seems to be a mid-range flat iron. Although, it works well for some women who have curly or wavy hair and only have to pass the straightener through their hair once. Purchasing a good Croc Straightener many depend on if you buy one that is defective or not.

If you receive a defective one you’re likely to be displeased. It’s a risk considering ordering if it from Croc, you will have to pay more money for having it fixed or replaced. Also, the fact that even a few people experienced this flat iron melting or being too hot to touch would make me leary of purchasing the straightener.
