Nifty product


Great little straightener for use on fringes. Easy to handle and great to take away when travelling. Would also be good for anyone with shorter hair, runs smoothly through the hair with no grabbing so for the price can’t fault it.

Purchased in May 2019 at Kmart Retail Stores.

Good for travel


Average performance, good to use when we are travelling. It takes time to heat up. Will recommended for already straighten hair for finishing touch only or for fine hair.

Get what you paid


Nothing goes wrong, just a simple hair straightener in a smaller size, it does the job which i would say you get what you paid, went to travel with this last 2 week but did not use much, kinda think a small one is useless as you will not usually go to travel and you will not usually style your hair during the trip unless you are working

Does the job


A good cheap straightener which certainly does the trick. Haven't experienced any snagging. Heat is very good - probably too high compared to higher end brands, but it does the job. Good for thin hair or fringe/bangs.

Excellent budget straightener


Excellent for budget user. Works well for the purpose and does not damage hair. It's great for touch-ups and quick straightening. I do not have long thick hair and so it is not a problem with the size. I recommend the longer Kmart straighter for long thick hair. Perfect for travel.

Good size for touch ups


I wouldn't use this to straighten a full head of hair. It is good for touch ups when wayward strands of unruly hair spring out of place and just need to be smoothed back in to place.

Easy to use


It is suitable for people who do not have that much hair like me
But this is definitely not suitable for people who have thick hair as this is too small for them
I bought this is because it’s easy to store and i will not always use it

Pretty good


This product straightens hair alright, it is affordable and the size makes it easy to take with you anywhere. I would buy this product again as it is the best cheap hair straighter I've purchased.

OK But Not Good for Thick Hair


I recently started travelling a lot more and thought having a smaller version of my home straightener would be fabulous. This lasted about two trips away. At first at heated up fine and didn't take too long, it took time to get through my hair but it worked and my hair stayed in place. The next trip was longer so i was utilising it more and whether it was the amount of times or that my hair was longer and thicker, it stopped working. This it is not good for longer term use.

What you get is what you pay for. Affordable and works ok but a would recommend using a lot of hair protectant and condition and treat you hair after you use it.

Best hair straightener


This is the best hair straightener i have owned even compared to brand name ones that cost me hundreds.
I have super frizzy wavy hair and this straightener works so quick and effortlessly.
It doesn't snag on my hair and has good size plates.
It could heat up a little quicker.

Perfect for short hair.


I keep my hair cut short so I bought this just to use on my fringe. It's a great little device at an inexpensive price. I've had this product for about 6 months and haven't had a problem. It does what it is supposed to do. Just be a little careful, because it's small it's easy to touch the heated area which can be a little painful on the fingers.

Didn’t do the job


I wasn’t happy with this hair straightener, it was an easy use I must admit that but it took a while for my hair to get straightened I would be there 10mins still doing one lot of hair to straighten, it wasn’t very reliable am doing I don’t recommend this product

Works as a backup


I'm an international student, so my hair straightener from back home stopped working here. This straightener CAN get the job done but it's very weak and feels very cheap. It takes a lot longer than my nicer-quality straightener, but if you don't want to spend more money, this one does work.

Value for money product!


Value for money product. Happy with the results, easy to use, heats up quickly , easy to carry, light weight, comes with all possible instructions... Amazing , will recommend for sure !

Good product


This is a good product in this price. So i am satisfied with the results from kmart mini hair straightener. Very easy to use and heat it up quickly. You can't compare it to GHD, but it still doing great!

I can't stress enough how much of a mistake you would be making if you used this in your hair!! My GHD broke before I moved state and because I needed a quick solution in the interim I purchased one of these! You definitely get what you pay for this reversed my 10 years of hard work in caring for my hair in just 3 months! I have split ends above my ears ... my hair dresser even commented on what a mess my hair was and she had never seen me before so had nothing to compare it to. STAY AWAY FROM THIS!!!!! It's not worth it!

Good value


I love this ceramic Iron. It heats up quickly. Because of its size it's easy to travel with and it is easy to manoeuvre and straighten my shorter strands of hair. Works just as well as any of the more expensive brands.
