Review of Revlon Perfect Heat Professional Ceramic Straightener

Reader Review of the Day: Revlon Perfect Heat Professional Ceramic Straightener

Reader clarkbar9 didn't get what she bargained for after using the Perfect Heat Professional Ceramic Straightener ($30) from Revlon, and here's what she had to say:

I purchased this because I had read a review that said it was a great value straightener. I used to have a much more expensive one, so I figured, why not save the money? Well, now I know why. It just doesn't flatten the hair as smoothly as more expensive products that I've used. I used to be able to use my straightener to twist my hair to give it texture, or to create crimpy curls, but this simply isn't strong enough. Even just using it regularly, I have to take twice as much time to go over each section of hair. It's worth investing in a better product.

Got a suggestion for an impressive low-cost straightener? Tell us all about it on the Product Reviews pages, where you can sort through over 50,000 beauty items to get other reader's opinions. We love to hear your input.

I have this and it does a good job on my hair. I have really straight hair to begin with and only need to use it on a low heat setting.

i have this, but i use it only for straightening out little waves here and there because i have straight hair already; i guess i wouldnt be a fair test

I used to use cheap flat irons like this, and I'm really glad I decided to upgrade. I bought a professional one on sale for about $80, and it worked amazingly for 3 years (that's with everyday use and tons of travel and abuse). If you have a decent amount of texture or will be using it everyday, it's well worth it to spend more.

Personally it pays to invest in a more pricier flat iron, especially if you plan to use often. I remember buying a flat iron that was on a lower price point and it crapped out on me in three months. Of course, you can experienced that with higher end brands. I think some of them are covered by manufacturer's warranty.

I dunno, I have this straightener and I really like it. My hair doesn't need that much help though, just smoothing really.
