Best Hair Straightener/curler/stylier Ever! But- Wont Last Long Enough To Make It Worth The Money
I used the Croc Infrared 1 1/2 inch flat iron, and it is absolutely amazing! I used it every day, without any product or heat protectant, and it made my hair smooth, silky, and it even helped to thicken my fine, puny hair. It was the healthiest it has been in a long time while I was using it! And the curls, oh my goodness! I would have to use an entire bottle of hairspray and it would take and hour and a half to curl my hair the old fashioned way, only to have the curls fall out before I even left the house. With the Croc, it would take me 20 minutes, WITHOUT PRODUCTS of any sort, and my hair would be incredibly curly, last all day, and I would wake up the next morning, with perfect curls still in my hair. You could even brush through your hair, and then twist your hair around your fingers to reshape the curls for a 2nd day of curly hair. A-MAZE-ING!
The down fall to this super awesome miracle worker? And its a big one- It only has a one year warranty. A little over a month after the warranty expired- I had to have a funeral for my Croc. It just would not stay on, kept shutting off, and then it eventually starting smoking, while I was using it, and totally fried the strand of hair I was curling. You could literally smell that burned skin/hair smell. Yuck!
I am so bummed at the short lifespan of this flat iron. I was a walking advertisement for this brand, telling everyone who would listen about my amazing Croc, but after dying on me after only a year, I can't justify paying that much money to buy a new Croc every 12 to 18 months. It just makes me sad to think of what a good thing I had, and now, how am I going to find a straightener that can come even remotely close to being as awesome as my croc? If only I could afford to buy one every year, I wouldn't even be looking for a different brand. :-(
