Pro Lets you do more than just hair straightening
Aside from straightening, it can also be used to curl your hair, due to its rounded corners. This makes it a great alternative to buying a separate hair curler. Simply heat it up, place the iron close to roots, twist your hair towards the back and then twirl the iron until the end section of your hair is flipped downwards.

The straightener comes with a heat protection mat, which provides a safe surface to place your straightener, either during styling or afterwards, when it's cooling down.

Con The hair sometimes can get stuck between the plates

If you have this problem and your budget is higher, then there are other options you can consider, such as higher quality straighteners with Argan oil, for example.
