I have really thick and curly hair so these straighteners are perfect for my me. They get really hot and glide really smoothly across your hair. They also look really nice - they are a sparkly brown colour. A good buy - would definately recommend.
I would not recommend this to a friend.

5* straighteners - worth the money

I bought these straighteners and they were a great investment. They dont dry out your hair like GHD's, they really lock in the moisture and that is very important for black hair, also varied heat control means you dont have to use them at 200 on a day to day basis, my hair is very thin and i now wont use anything else, my friends hair is normal thickness and she loves them. My friend (who has white hair) used them and she loves them because they reduce damage to her hair. Another friend who has unusually thick hair used them and although she had to leave them on there longer they worked fine .... all around a good buy and id recommend to anyone no matter what hair type.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Simply The Best Straighteners for Afro Hair

I took a punt on these T&G straighteners on the strength of the reviews on Boots.com. I have to say they are brilliant. My hair is super straight, shiny and finally blending with my extensions. I am very, very pleased with them. I absolutely recommend them for relaxed hair. Forget GHDs.

i'd recently chemically relaxed my hair, so wanted to get straightners specifically for afro-caribbean hair. they do a great job, leave my hair soft and silky, and definitely straight: were as good as my GHDs and for almost a third of the price! great for frizzy/relaxed hair as they don't break or snag your hair, brilliant buy :)

I don't relax my hair at all and was looking for a good straightener after mine died...these were a great substitute to them and keeps my hair straight for a long time @ least 2 weeks each time!

I have completely natural afro hair (i.e. no chemicals), with a range of kinky/curly textures throughout. These straighteners really surprised me - I didn't actually think they would work, but took the risk anyway and bought them.
I straightened hair in small sections at the maximum heat temp (my hair is quite coarse, this wouldn't necessarily be suitable for all) and only had to pass the straighteners through all sections once. I had fantastic results which lasted until I washed my hair (a week later).
So this worked for me, but reading other comments it may not be suitable for all...
I would recommend this to a friend!

Based on these reviews i took a chance on these straighteners as i have really curly thick hair and thought there would be perfect.
I wasn't impressed. I had to go over the same piece of hair a good few times for it to actually be remotely straight and even then it was still a bit fluffy, so going through this process with every chunk of hair made it quite time consuming. I also found that once straight it didn't really last and my hair would poof up throughout the day. I used these for about 2 months to get my moneys' worth then gave them to my mum who actually has afro hair, and she wasn't impressed either.
So i'm not writing this product off completely as clearly it has better results for some rather than others but i would recommend trying before you buy if possible.
Advantages: nice shape, easy to handle
Disadvantages: didn't get the results expected, hair wasn't completely straight after use, effect didn't last
I would not recommend this to a friend.
