Works on my thick wavy hair
I gave this 5 out of 5 stars
This Xtava flat iron is very attractive, it looks really nice. The plates are are 1 inch wide. There is an on/off switch on the inside the iron. It gets hot pretty fast. I have thick and wavy hair so I had doubts that this 1 inch iron could handle my hair. While it did take longer, it did work. I was pleasantly surprised. If I travel with a flat iron it will be this one. Besides working well it is lightweight, comfortable to use and doesn't take up very much room. When I run my hair thru the plates, it does not pull or rip my hair. There is a piece on the cord where it attaches to the iron, it holds the iron closed for storage. It comes with a heat resistant storage bag and it comes with 4 hair clips for parting hair. I am very happy with it. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
