I bought this to help protect my hair. It had so many heat setting I has sure the lowest would not be so hot, but, I put it on the lowest setting and it is SO hot, I'm afraid to leave it on my hair for 8 seconds. I have very fine hair. The clip is good, hold hair without falling out. I keep my flat iron on 250, that hot, but you don't leave it sitting on your hair, your are constantly moving it. But to leave it on one spot for 8 seconds, I'm sure would fry my hair in time. It is a good iron, smooth, no tugging, but too hot for my hair.
