Review: Sedu Revolution Flat Iron

(Image courtesy of Flat Iron Reviews.com)

Hey beauties! I had invested quite a bit of money last month into purchasing a new (top quality) flat iron...I had been using the chi I got for my 17th birthday from my aunt for quite some time now. I am now 18 years old. So, senior year to freshman in college. I had no complaints about my chi, I thought it worked excellently and everyone says its cheaply made and doesn't last long. So glad I got a good year out of it until the straightening power began to fade. I still own it, because it still works, just not as well as when I first used it. So, I went on Folica.com...heard great reviews about this thing, and decided to give it a go.

Price: $139.00
Ratings: 4.5 out of 5 stars I believe...

This flat iron looked so sleek on folica.com, but when I received mine it looked almost cheap...I bought mine in pink..i don't know if that's why. But I decided to give this a chance anyways.

PROS
- It's a great flat iron. I noticed this Sedu ran more smoother through my hair than the Chi, that's what the product's claim was anyways..and for the price I expected that.
-It has a two year warranty that the Chi doesn't offer.
- It comes with a heat proof mat through Folica.com

CONS
- The performance of the flat iron in comparison to the price..is so, so...the Chi cost 60 dollars..and works just the same..139.00 seemed way overpriced for this product
- Some people might see this as a Pro, but I hate that it comes with a temperature setting, I liked that the Chi did not..
- When you put it to the highest setting, you get this gross smell of burnt hair you cannot believe... I never had that problem with my chi
- My hair frizzes more with this product, I don't know if it's the iron or my hair...

Overall, good product I believe. I would probably take it back though if I wasn't so lazy. I like the Chi better.

Would I repurchase?- No.
Would I recommend this to a friend? I wouldn't recommend it..but if they had their heart set on buying it..the only thing i would have to say is it is overpriced.

Xoxoxo Jenna.

  2. I was disappointed in the sedu flat iron I bought too. If you ever get a chance, try a GHD. They are pricey, but worth EVERY PENNY. Makes my old CHI (which I like and does a good job) look like it doesn't work half as well as I thought it did before I bought it. xoxo

  4. I have never been a big fan of Chi's. I have a T3 that I have had since I was 16 and let me tell you- it still works incredibly. It is EXTREMELY pricey though- I think the good ones run about $250. But trust me- it's worth it. I also have their blow dryer and it is AMAZING. Check it out- its a great investment! :D

    Have a great weekend!
