Cortex Solo 450 Flat Iron From Flat Iron Experts {Review} #spon

Flat Iron Experts ~


I don’t know about you, but I can never go out in public with my hair not styled. It is a total mess! It’s not straight but then again it’s not curly. It’s poofy, frizzy, and in no way attractive. So, I use a flat iron on my hair constantly! My hair is extremely thick, which makes finding a flat iron that actually works well pretty complicated. When I first received my past flat irons, I would be so excited and anxious to try them out. Sadly, in the end I would always get the same result. I would straighten my hair right before school, and by the time i got to school my hair would be frizzy, and starting to curl again.

Lucky for me, Flat Iron Experts recently sent me one of their flat irons to review. Flat Iron Experts is a wonderful website that helps you to pick out a flat iron (and other hair products) that  fit your needs perfectly. Whether you have wavy, curly, frizzy, thick, thin, or any other kind of hair, I feel that Flat Iron Experts has a product that is tailor made for you!

What Did I Think About My Cortex Solo 450 Flat Iron?

I ended up choosing the Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Zebra Flat Iron / Hair Straightener (1″). Of course I had to get a Flat Iron that is zebra print! ;) When I received it in the mail, I was so excited to try it out. So, when I got up the next morning, I sprayed my hair with KQC Thermal Shine Spray (which I also received from Flat Iron Experts). Then, I began straightening my hair! The straightener worked great and slid smoothly over my hair. With other straighteners that I have used in the past, it usually took about an hour and a half to get my hair completely straightened because my hair is so thick. I found that this was not the case with this fantastic straightener. It only took me forty-five minutes! I have to say that I am so happy about that! More sleep for me!

When I got to school on the first day that I used the Cortex Solo 450, it was a very humid day and I was scared that my hair was going to start to curl! I worried needlessly as it did not frizz at all! Another great thing is that I also received a nice holder for my straightener. This is a great thing to have so that you don’t burn your sink, or worse…catch the house on fire! I have never received a holder with any of my previous straighteners and this is a necessity, in my opinion.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with my straightener! But don’t let the name fool you, Flat Iron Experts does not only offer flat irons. They have a wide range of products for all your hair styling needs. My Cortex Solo 450 is everything I have been wanting and I would recommend this website to anyone and everyone!

  1. Looks like it did a great job with your hair – how pretty!

  2. Straighteners are my best friends. LOL. I have to straighten my hair most of the time, too. It’s the only way I know how to “style” my hair at this point. Love the design on yours! :)
