Ok, I got this for my sister and I to share. We still both live at home so we only need one. I'll be talking for her too because we both think the same about this flat iron. Cortex has hit the spot for us! This is not expensive at all and produces amazing results. We use it both as a curler and a straightener. Silky smooth finishes and we just can't expect more from it. Yep, we're happy campers!
