Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener, 1.25 inch with Carrying Case Review

I got to try out this ceramic tourmaline flat iron from Gurin and it was wonderful. The heat settings on this range from 240F to 450F (120C - 220C) to suit all hair types. When I used it I just went up to max heat settings which is what I always do with flat irons. The flat iron comes with a neat little carrying case but I didn't need it because I already had a table top flat iron holder. 

I've been through many different types of flat irons in my life and believe me nothing was better than a really expensive one I tried but once that broke and stopped working one year later I was really upset about it. I did get to review it for free but still upsetting because if I had dropped the cash on it I would be extremely angry.  It was amazing nonetheless. I also have tried cheap flat irons from Walmart and Target and they have been alright but I still have to replace them after about a year to a year and a half because it just becomes so worn it doesn't work the same way. 

I wanted to try this flat iron on my daughter's unruly hair. If it can get through that then it would truly put it to the test. 

So here's my daughter's crazy hair before straightening it. 

Here's her hair after straightening it. This took me about 20 minutes to do. I think the straightener worked out pretty well. I didn't get any snagging or any loss of heat. For the cost of the product you can't beat how it does its job. I would suggest using some thermal shine spray in your hair before using it to give it extra healthy sheen. 

The straightener was also very comfortable to hold and use. The wire on it is also reasonably long for good reach. I also liked the fact that the hair iron ends didn't get too hot so even when I touched it by mistake it didn't give me a searing burn. I'm very happy with the performance of this iron and recommend it over any cheap iron you can find locally. #FlatIronHairStraightener #Gurin
