I bought this straightener at an extremely low price, probably ten bucks when it was on sale at Target. When I first started using it, I thought I had found a miracle product! It worked pretty well for how much it costed. It was light and thin, very easy to maneuver around your head. It straightened my hair decently (it was not pin straight, but still) and could curl pieces of hair. However, about a month later I noticed that my ends started getting super dry! I had split ends traveling really far up my hair shaft. I believe that this was due to the plates being made out of a very cheap material. You can tell how bad the quality is just by feeling them. It's like finger nails on a chalkboard to me. I had to get a trim much sooner than usual. Also, at that time it also stopped straightening my hair as well. I do not know if that was because it damaged my hair, or because something was wrong with it electrically. Effectiveness Worked decently at first, but that stopped after about a month. Durability It wore out very quickly.
