I got my brand new pink Karmin G3 straightener in the mail a couple days ago. I was so excited, I turned it on to try it. I loved the way it glided through my hair so smoothly, not one strand of hair was pulled or snagged out of my head! I have never experienced that before. I have an older babyliss nano titanium straightener, and even that one pulled. Big difference in straighteners. The Karmin doesn't pull or break your hair AT ALL. It leaves your shair super shiny and smooth. My ends were SO much more smooth it wasn't even funny. Even my boyfriend noticed my hair and said it felt so much softer than usual, and I hadn't even told him about using it. And come on, guys never notice hair ;) I used the Babyliss on about 435 degrees. I had the Karmin all the way up to 460 degrees and it didn't feel even as hot as the babyliss got at a lower temperature. I am thinking it might be a part of the defect. Folica sent me a pre-paid return label and I sent it back for a replacement today because I wasn't sure it was getting as hot as it is supposed to. When you turn on the straightener, the red light flashes until it reaches desired temperature. But it was flashing the ENTIRE time I was straightening my hair. Customer Service said definite defect. We will see, hopefully the replacement is better!
