This is by far the best decision I have ever made in awhile. My old straighter was great and all but over 6 months it would not keep the same temperature and it would take a very long time being that I have very wavy and thick hair. I was looking for something that would be a breeze to get ready. Guess what? I found it! Introducing the HSI Glider Ceramic Flat Iron. It is the best decision I have made in a long time and I am very excited to share it with everyone. I received it in the mail by UPS. I didn’t think that it was going to be as good as my high dollar hair straighter but man I was wrong. It came with a heat glove as well as a very cute carrying bag. I am always on the go so that was a very great bonus for me. I prepped my hair up just as I would have with my older straightener and little did I know I did not have to separate my hair with this straightener. It was tough even to go through all this thick hair. The temperature goes all the way to 450 degrees. It did not take long to reach the correct temperature. I have used it for two weeks now and it still amazes me. It takes half the time with my new straighter than it does with my older one. It leaves it shiny and soft. Also, it does not leave a burnt hair smell. Even better I also ordered their Argan Oil Thermal Protector Spray, which it gives your hair all the vitamins that your hair needs and protects your hair from any heat damage. Both work great. I would highly recommend any stylist out there to give your clients the best hair care.
