While searching the net for more info and to see what people were thinking of it, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it's ranked among the best ceramic flat irons - it's even on the Top 10 Flat Irons list from Hair Products Pro!
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 but 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.
This 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!
Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron is currently on sale for $129.95 (normally retails at $300!) at Hair Products Pro.
