Strongest points
These heat up super-quick and are really light (compared to my 5+ year old straighteners that exploded recently).
Weakest points
I would like to have had floating plates too.
Summary
I bought these after lots of research after my old straighteners died (Mark Hill for Boots). They were quite at bargain at £39.99. I like how light they are, my arms will ache less after straightening the back or curling my hair. The three different heat settings are quite varied, medium was too cool to really straighten my hair in one swipe. I only straighten my hair for VERY fancy occasions, so I don't mind using a too-hot setting.

Now this is tricky and this review will seem conflicted. They're very good straighteners if you want high heat, an easy glide and lasting results. But they're bad if your hair is dry and damaged (like mine). I have frizzy hair that I have no option other than to straighten regularly - birds nest hair isnt a good look!

So, I think they're massivey over-priced. For 7 years I used a pair of Nicky Clarke ceramic straighteners which I bought for £35. I loved them and I think because they were ceramic, they actually protected my hair and didnt cause it to dry out. But sadly they konked out - cant complain after frequent use for 7 years. Thought i'd try some different ones as they no longer did my particular trusty Nicky Clarkes any more.

So I bought the Babyliss Pro Elegance after lots of research suggested that the titanium plates are even better for your hair than ceramic. Now titanium straighteners havent been around for a long time and I can safely say that this is BS. Yes, they straighten my hair to within an inch of its life - even on the lowest heat setting - but the feel of hair after using them is that it literally had been ironed. Flat, and dry. My ends are the worse they've ever been too. Can actually hear them crying.

So - i'm going to flog these on Ebay and purchase some other Nicky Clarke ceramics. There are lots on the market and i've seen some for about 20 quid.

Bottom line - if your hair is healthy anyway, and quite thick - you'll be on to a winner with this. If your hair is weak and thin - avoid these mother chuckers like the plague!

Hope I helped :-)

Easy to use, does not ruin ends as much as others.
Weakest points
Would prefer more heat settings.
Summary
I prefer straighteners with heat settings you can set your self, not automated ones as I use different heat settings for different styles or depending on how my hair is at the time.
These were good though apart from that, straighten well and leave hair looking nice and glossy.
Hair did not dry out as quick as other straighteners, think they are a little expensive though and would recommend much better ones for cheaper.

I have been using these straighteners for nearly two years and they work very very well on my naturally curly hair, they look really stylish and they make my hair shiny, straight and sleek looking .

If you cant afford GHD s I would recommend trying these, That's what I did and i'm very happy with them they do a great job.
