Cortex Flat iron Duo

Hello! I am back with another post!

So before I left for New York I bought these flat irons from TJ Maxx for $30
which is a really good deal considering its usually retails from $80-$100.

I thought the small one is mad cute and perfect for taking along on trips.

Before & After

No no!

My hair is pretty fine, not curly but a little wavy and have super dry ends. A good flat iron for me has to be hot enough and release enough negative ions to smoothly seal my ends. The small one is good for travel but its not hot and strong enough to do so for sure. Platinum is okay but honestly I would NOT pay $80-$100 to buy such a mediocre product. It straightens and everything but my hair does not seem to be in better condition. I do not recommend it unless you also buy it for $30.

What do you think? Any recommendations for flatiron around $60-$80?


  1. that mini flat iron looks so cute!!
    i don't use a flatiron that much because my hair is already realy straight. but i would recommend a flatiron from Chi. it's a little bit more expensive, but it's worth it

  2. hey i really like the mini version flatiron. lol i might get one if i travel alot! urrghh yea. and btw im starting to use blogger now. but i need some recommendations for creating my blog. im so new to the blogger! :)

  3. thanks for stopping by my blog :)!

    I dont use flat irons a lot, but I do know that they seem to harm the texture of hair after repeated usings >.<

  4. I bought mine for about $100!! But its a salon one so it was okie and its a full platinum plates. For cheap ones, I'd just go with VS... I use to use VS and it worked equally fine!
