I didn’t believe that a non-expensive hair straightener could perform the same level as professional tools, but the characteristics of Perfectwo flat iron have exceeded my expectations. This white flat iron surprised me with its power and effectiveness! The plates aren’t the slimmest so they’re not ideal for curling but I’m not very good at curling with a hair straightener anyway and I found that the Perfectwo curling wand which super affordable and so I’ve ordered this as well so that I can change my hairstyle from time to time. I just love this brand and how well it performs. This is what I love about the Perfectwo flat iron, and what makes it, in my opinion, the best.
My First Impressions
One of the main reasons I decided to purchase this model due its compact size and ergonomic design. It doesn’t have LED display, but the temperature can be adjusted with several buttons with temp buttons big enough to easily see. The chosen mode will be reflected when using the device. The plates are made of tourmaline and have a ceramic coating, which prevents any spreading of static electricity. The frame and the handle of the tool have an anti-heating cover, protecting your fingers and head from burns. The rectangular ceramic plates are middle-sized, 1.5″ wide — this is enough to work with my thick long hair.
This flat iron is about 12″ long and 2″ wide, which is a bit smaller than other straightening irons that I used to have. Weighing only 15 ounces, the Perfectwo flat iron is ideal for carrying in a bag, so I always take it with me when I’m traveling. This model is only available in white color, but I think it looks elegant and smart. Only the flat iron itself and the power cord are featured in the box, but nothing else is required to start using the device. I didn’t additionally buy protective gloves simply because the tool is safe to use without them and doesn’t burn your hands at all. My first experience was great, it was very straightforward and I found it very easy to use, controlling was intuitive, and it took me only ten minutes to make a gorgeous hairstyle!
A Few Words About Usage
This is the best flat iron I have ever tried, from a convenience outlook especially. The Perfectwo is compact and effective, which is rare among models in this price range. First, I want to note that heating takes about 30 seconds to the lowest temperature and up to a minute to heat up to the maximum. The flat iron features a rotating cable so I didn’t have any problems with it kinking or getting twisted making it easy when styling your hair yourself because it’s necessary to move your hands often and the rotating cable ensures the wire doesn’t get in your way.
Unfortunately, the device does not have a hanging hook, which makes the tool less convenient for storing at home or using in hair salons. However, I often take it with me and just put it in my bag seen as it cools down pretty quickly, so this disadvantage isn’t really a problem for me. The button layout is handy, you simply switch the on/off button and choose the temperature with the help of the buttons on the handle. But the on/off button is located right at the place of hand grip — I accidentally pressed it a couple of times while I was using it so that actually took me a while to get used to it and start holding the device in another way.
Another thing that makes the Perfectwo suitable for different hair types is its wide range of temperature modes.
- Minimum temperature 260 °F (127 °C) perfect for girls with thin blonde hair — it is quite mild, and will not destroy the structure.
- Maximum temperature is 410 °F (210 °C) I usually use this mode because I have thick long black hair.
My friend with curly hair used my device, and was amazed by the effect — she found it easy to straighten her hair which she enjoyed for two and a half days.
Every user can figure out the best temperature for them that will not only be safe but will straighten their locks properly.
As I have already mentioned, the anti-scald design is one of the strongest points of Perfectwo. The handle, frame, and groove have an anti-heating cover, so there’s no need to worry about getting burnt. The heating insulation design does not let the handle near the plates get too hot, I think this is the best device in terms of safety. To this day, I haven’t experienced any problems with burns and heat.
This white flat iron also features negative ionizing which seals damaged hair, making it shiny and healthy. The ionization is effective even with frizzy hair. The ceramic surface of the plates allow the tool to glide smoothly, one pass through your hair is enough to reach your desired effect. I also highly appreciate its 60-minute automatic shut-off function. The device is single voltage, which should be taken into consideration, so to travel with it overseas you’ll need an adapter.
In addition, I want to note that the power cord is of a very convenient length, so I can use it in my bathroom or bedroom. I have taken my device on trips and haven’t had any problems with voltage and power.
I am totally satisfied with my purchase! The Perfectwo flat iron turned out to be a versatile device suitable for all types and textures of hair — my friends and I have already figured this out. I have been using it for four months, and see no negative effects; my hair is shiny, healthy, and I don’t have any split ends that have appeared. The previous device I was using, burnt the keratin in my hair, and it wasn’t convenient, which resulted in me getting rid of it after not even having it for very long. Yes, the Perfectwo flat iron does have some minor drawbacks, such as single voltage, no hanging hook and a lack of any additional accessories, but these are specific criteria that can simply be ignored by most users. Some won’t like the fact that the model is available in white color only, but this is minor as well. All these disadvantages are compensated by it’s ergonomic, convenient dimensions and absolute safety. I fell in love with this white flat iron from the very first use! If you need a lightweight, compact tool that is highly efficient, this is a good choice for you! It is a far cheaper alternative to other top-notch professional straighteners. I would recommend Perfectwo to anyone in need of a well-made affordable flat iron with superior power and performance.
