I have frizz-prone hair with a whole lot of flyaways and unruly bits that tend to stick out every which way, and most times I rely on blow drying to get my hair to sit in place.  I don't reach for flat irons all that often, but they are convenient to have around if I need my hair looking smooth and sleek.  I recently got to try out the John Frieda Sleek Finish flat iron, and talk about judging a book by its cover, soon as I saw it I was in love with design.  The dull metallic finish and the minimalistic layout of the controls all really appealed to me.  The flat iron claims to utilize 1-inch plates (featuring a fusion of titanium and ceramic) and ionic technology to deliver a sleek finish while customizable digital settings help choose the right temperature for every hair type.  Scroll on to know more.

The controls for the flat iron are located along a thin strip and include the on/off button as well as controls for setting the temperature, which is displayed right above the settings.  The customizable digital settings help choose the ideal temperture for each hair type rather than rely on a broad low-medium-high setting.

The John Frieda flat iron does a great job of heating up in a jiffy, and for those with easy-to-style fine hair, this would probably also work great at providing a smooth, sleek finish.  I have thicker hair, and it took a couple of passes to get my hair straightened.  I do prefer using a lower heat setting to avoid damaging my hair further, so that could be the issue, and I did find it worked better when I blow dried my hair first before using this flat iron.

The design of the flat iron, which I found so appealing at first glance, does take a bit of getting used to since the controls are placed perfectly to line up with fingers - great for easy access to controls but they also end up getting accidentally pressed while the flat iron is being used.  It took me a while to get the hang of using this iron - flip the iron so the fingers are resting on the other side rather than on the controls.  Also, the area around the plates does get quite hot, and I do need to be extracareful while using the iron, but on the bright side, it gives me beautiful bouncy curls when I use it to curl my hair :D

Overall, despite how good the iron looks, it's not something I reach for very often.
