I love this straightener. Ive had it for 2 years and it makes my hair super straight and shiny. Ive used more expensive, high-end brands and this works just as well. Save your money on buying a Chi and get this one instead!
I actually just bought this myself, before seeing the review. I had bought one by Revlon (I think!) that compared itself to the Chi. Well, it was awful, to say the least. I didn't know if it was my hair changing, my shampoo/conditioner, or what the issue was all of a sudden. I realized the issues began when I started using this $40.00 iron, so I took a chance on the Andis as it was only $15.00, and I really didn't want to spend alot as I had just spent $40.00. It was the best $15.00 I have spent in a long time. It works great. Heats up fast, and most important-my hair is back to normal!
Good ol WAL-MART!
