Because I don't use heat on my hair regularly, it's a little hard for me to properly test styling tools. Still, H&R Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron is the one I have reached for the most for the last months, and I have been pretty happy with it.
Honestly, I'm not very complicated and I don't ask for much when it comes to flat irons - I want it to properly straighten my hair without much effort and to be gentle on my hair - that's all! Unfortunately, I have been a little disappointed with H&R Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron on these issues.
The first times I used this iron, I noticed that it tugged my hair quite a lot if I didn't take my time to slowly glide it on my hair, and if I didn't set it to a temperature high enough. This is a little disappointing for a flat iron of this price, especially when it's claimed that it features a "New Patented Suspended Plate Technology" that prevents pulling of your hair during styling, but I guess I only needed to get used to it and appart from that, it does the job quite well as my hair is left nicely straightened and shiny so I think it's a small price to pay.
I'm personally more drawn to 1" plates than any other size because I think it's the most versatile size - it allows you to not only straighten your hair, but also create waves and curls effortlessly. I have also noticed that H&R Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron heats up really quickly and as it heats up to 450 degrees, it alllows you to select the perfect temperature based on your hair type. Another bonus is the swivel cord so you can easily manuever around without the cord tangling - I remember, with my old flat iron, the cord always ended up all tangled - so annoying!
