I have naturally curly hair that’s pretty long. Of course I prefer straight hair because I don’t have it. In order to, I have to iron my hair daily. Even still any sort of humidity what so over messes it up and makes me a frizzy mess. This reason alone is why I NEED a flat iron that works better than most. About 7 years ago I found that flat iron. FHI Heat’s Platform Signature Pro 1″ Styler. Over this time I’ve gone through, well am about to go through my second one. The first is my fault that it didn’t last longer, cause it fell of my bathroom sink a few times. Now my second one is probably 4-5 years old and sadly it’s about time to get a new one. It still works but the pieces have started falling off and my hair gets stuck between the plates sometimes, so when I pull it away to iron it rips my hair out. Ouch!! I think this is normal though, especially after 1,000+ uses.
I’ve tested and reviewed several flat irons and styling tools, on my old blog over the years and the FHI Heat Platform is by far the best I’ve ever found. I have curly hair past the middle of my back and in one swipe my hair is straight. Including the time it takes me to blow dry, then section my hair I can have it straight in 20 – 25 minutes. Straight hair that’s not frizzy and has a nice shine. Unless it rains or there’s a lot of humidity I don’t have to ever touch it up throughout the day. When I do have to do touch ups, it only takes minutes.
Platform features and reasons why it’s such a great iron. Temperature goes up to 450, has three layers of ceramic plates that are infused by smoothing tourmaline (repel humidity, reduce frizz and increase shine) Edge to edge heaters, floating plates for better grip and 1 hour shut off timer.
If you know of or have a flat iron that works just as good or better than this iron, I’d love to hear about it so I can give it a try and either find a new iron or get another platform before mine dies.
