When i was in the market for a flat iron,i was looking for something very specific.I wanted
- A recognized brand
- Genuine product
- something that has a way to increase and decrease heat
- something that heats up quickly
- once heated , maintains the level
- wide plates(although i have shoulder length hair,both my sisters have quite long hair and it is difficult to use a smaller straightner for them)
- Plates either ceramic or coated with tourmaline( to protect hair from damaging heat)
Now it is a whole other story online.If you can afford it,go for buying it online,read reviews, research what you want and buy something really good.But i couldn't get it online so finally i went to Gul Plaza, where i found this.
REMINGTON PROFESSIONAL S-3003 2x FLAT IRON
Its a good product.Heats up very quickly.Has temperature control.ceramic plated.Comes with its own heat protected pouch.Straightens hair quickly and beautifully.Cant say anything bad about it apart from that it cant be used to curl hair because the plates are too wide.(Atleast i cant do it)
Cost: 2000-2100 Rs
"Remington" is a German brand, i think.
Which brand of flat iron do you use?:)
