PRODUCT ------------ I first bought these hair straighteners when my other pair broke. My other pair were the exact same but thick. I had to buy these thin hair straighteners because they had sadly stopped selling the thick ones. I have to admit I enjoyed the thick ones more because I find these thin ones very time consuming. However, since I got my hair chopped from my waist to my shoulders, I have found that these straighteners are really good and that I wouldn't have been able to use the thick ones anymore. Not without burning myself. These straightness come with a small rectangle screen which displays the heat you want. This goes up in intervals of 10's ... Read the complete review

The Remington S5500 Sleek & Smooth Hair Straighteners are my second set of straighteners from Remington, although my other set of straighteners work perfectly fine I brought these as I felt I needed more control over the temperature at which I straighten my hair. I purchased the straighteners from Amazon.co.uk at the end of last year (2011) and paid around £30, they are currently available for £37.38 (Nov 2012) with free delivery. I was attracted to this particular set of straighteners as they have a variable heat function, from 150°c to 230°c and an auto shut off function after 60 minutes. Two features that my previous straighteners were sadly lacking. ... Read the complete review

I bought the Remington smooth and sleek straighteners out of desperatio when my trusty GHD's died. They were on a decent special offer and I couldn't justify spending GHD money at the time! The good points of the Remington ones are that they do look 'sleek' and are also a decent size and easy to handle (compared to some that feel very bulky in your hand). The cord is a decent length and swivels which is very handy at the gym when the plug socket is far from the mirror. They heat up quickly- in fact I don't think they took any longer than my GHD's and they have a nice little display that tells you the temperature. The downside is that if you are used to GHD's you ... Read the complete review

I have to say I'm not really into hair and makeup, and every time I'd tried to use straighteners before was disappointed with the results and failed to be able to do the back of my hair properly. I gave up. Recently however I decided to give it another go and after asking around brought a set of these Remington straighteners, not expecting much. I was surprised. They heat up very fast and have a display to let you know the temperature. You can vary the temperature to suit your hair. I have very thick, frizzy hair and lots of it but only use 170 C and it takes me about 20 mins to do my hair from start to finish. The casing is smooth and easy to ... Read the complete review

I bought these straighteners about 6 months ago, and they are fantastic! You don't need to spend loads of money on getting GHD's, these are just the ticket. Easy to handle, they get really hot (so do be careful!). I find that a few strokes with them leaves my hair (which can be "fly-away") looking smooth and straight, and it lasts all day. No need to spray it either! I use V05 "Hot and Straight" spray (comes in a pink bottle) - just a few squirts, combed through - before I use the straighteners to protect my hair, as everyone knows using straighteners are the not the best thing for keeping your hair moisturised. I have tried ... Read the complete review
