Of course, you still have to be careful as to not scald yourself while trying to straighten these downy hairs, and that's why a silver, heat-resistant glove is included. (Impersonating MJ while singing into my Sedu "microphone"? Who, me?) One quick swipe over small, yet manageable-sized sections, does the trick, making for an extremely fast straightening process all over the head. Plus, because it straightens so smoothly and quickly, the hair-damaging act of going over an unruly spot over and over is avoided altogether. Thanks to the minisize, it's got a mini-price-tag. Other larger Sedues go for upward of $140, making this one a real bargain. If you have extremely thick hair or super-curly locks, this straightener might not have quite what you need to achieve a straight finish, but for those with short styles and/or wavy textures, the Mini-Styler is worth a shot.
