REVIEW : CORTEX FLAT IRON


Straight, Sleek Hair always looks good. It looks prim and polished and is a great look for everyday. But with my curly crazy hair that can be kind of difficult. So I decided to try out a new flat iron , The Cortex Platinum Collection Zebra Print Flat Iron [ 1 1/2 inch ]


Cortex Platinum Collection Zebra Print Flat Iron (1-1/2")
So I was shopping at my local T.J. Maxx and glanced over and saw this flat iron , I didn't get too excited because it was 30.00 and I didn't think it would be of good quality and used to spending at least 50 dollars for a quality flat iron that can get the job done without frizzing up in a day. Well I WAS WRONG ! This flat iron normally retails for 100+ but T.J.Maxx ( and their great discounts ) marked it to 30 dollars brand new! [ By the way in case you didn't know T.J. Maxx is a department store that gets overstocked brand new brand name products such as Dooney and Burke, and Michael Kors and marks them down . If you don't have a T.J. Maxx check for a Marshall's because they are basically the same store , owned by the same company. ] If you can't find T.J. Maxx or Marshalls , BeautyChoice.Com has a great price on this iron here.

Pros:

  • Sleek, ergonomic design with non-slip grip
  • Heats to maximum temperature swiftly and remains constant throughout use
  • Swivel cord prevents tangling - Long cord so you dont have to look for a nearby plug .
  • Hooked end for easy hanging and storage
  • Variable temperature settings for all hair types - If you have more damaged/ thinner pieces you can turn down the heat and turn it up for your thicker pieces of hair .
  • 110-120 volts, 60Hz
  • Temperature gauge offers ranges from 140˚ F to 410˚ F - 410 degrees will straighten even the curliest longest hair .
  • 90 watts
  • 1 year warranty
  • ITS ZEBRA PRINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • Cons:
    • I don't like that the temperature control isn't buttons however the great thing is it is not outside the flat iron so your hands wont accidentally bump it while doing your hair.
