Solia Mini Is Absolutely Wonderful!!!!!
I recieved this item as a free gift for making a purchase of $75 or more on folica, and i must say this is the best iron for at home/travel use I've ever gotten. Its small and compact,so you can just throw it in your carry on, and take it where ever you wanna go, and it's great for at home use too. I've purchased my fair share of flat irons and curling products, and this by fair has been the easiest and most versatile iron ive ever recieved. the plates don't snag at your hair while ironing, and it heats up in mearly 10 to 20 seconds, and stays evenly hot while in use. It doesnt have different settings for heat adjustment, so those with fragile and fine hair should use caution coz it can get pretty hot. i myself have fine long hair, so i had to be vigil at first. However, even with that set back, it heats alot better than many irons ive used in the past, which just heat up during initial use, and then die down when your half way through finishing your hair. This iron is also great not only for straighthening, but for flips and curls of various size. Even though the plate width is only 1/2 an inch, that 1/2 an inch packs a big punch. Curling hair is a snap with this iron. To have large or barrel curls, you just need to pass it through your hair a bit slower than normal, and for tight curls just pass the iron through your hair like you would do while straighthening. For girls who have layers in their hair, (like myself) the iron creates a lasting flip effect, that doesnt require alot of maintainence or time. I have hair that reachs my lower back, and to straighthen or curl my hair, it only took 10 to 15 minutes. I give this iron a 10 outta 10!! =)
