Love it so much
I've had this for years now and it is amazing! Heats up in less than a minute, straightens my hair with one swipe on each section and is lightweight (this one doesn't leave my wrist in pain after straightening my hair). Absolutely love it, well worth the price <3
Purchased in June 2014.
I definitely recommend this product
This product is so easy and makes my hair so smooth. My hair can be very hard to manage but, this straightener makes it 20x easier. I use this product on a daily bases and do not know what I would’ve done. Mine is already 2 years old and still looks new. I am so happy with this product and I 100% recommend.
Great quality & price
I bought this to replace my GHD of 12+ years. Was originally planning on getting a Cloud9 until my hairdresser recommended the Muk 230-IR, and I'm happy that I took her advice and saved some money. I wash and style my hair 2-3 times per week, either straightening my hair or doing loose/beachy waves, very satisfied with how it works for both. I have VERY thick, wavy and colour treated hair that's prone to frizzing as the day goes by, styling it with the Muk (combined with leave in moisturiser and finishing serum) keeps it under control just as e...ffectively as my previous straightener did. Every now and then I find it slightly clunky when doing waves, like the barrel doesn't wrap around the hair smoothly and pulls/catches a bit; I do think my old GHD was lighter and smoother for this purpose (that specific model GHD is no longer available though). This is pretty minor though, 95% of the waves it rolls through smoothly. I've had my Muk straightener for almost a year now and overall I'm really happy with it.

Better than our GHD :O !
My mum actually purchased this in Rose Gold to replace our 10 year old GHD. We were initially looking at another GHD but a staff member in store changed our mind. This hair straightener is INCREDIBLE. The quality is amazing - unlike our original GHD, you have the option to adjust the temperature (very important), it automatically turns off after 30 mins or so of not being used, the technology behind it seems to be far more advanced than our GHD. I have taken the below directly from the box:

Why did I wait so long to update!
I had owned a slimline GHD for around 5 years. I thought it was good at the time but looking back, it was hard to do long hair with and my hair would still go fuzzy. It was never sleek.
My GHD finally died and I purchased the Muk Style Stick 230-Ir Wide Plate. OMG it is sooooo much better than my GHD. My hair looks silky and unless the weather is particularly unforgiving, it stays that way!
Heats up quickly (I use 200), doesn’t pull my hair. Love it!
Definitely get a wide plate for long, thick hair!!

Best straightener on the market
This hair straightener is one of a kind, whilst it works with your hair not against which minimises any kinks that other hair straighteners havent been able to avoid. With different heat selections for all types of hair or desired effect.

Works wonders on my thick, wavy hair
I had my old GHD for 10 years but needed a new straightener ASAP but couldn't afford a new GHD or Cloud 9 so I decided to give the Muk 230-IR a go. This straightener definitely lived up to all the glowing reviews I's read and has no issues dealing with my thick, wavy hair quickly with silky smooth results. It also is designed so that your hair doesn't get caught anywhere.

Heats up fast!
i use this everyday! I love how fast it is to heat up and makes it so easy to straighten my curly hair. Has different temperatures so can reduce hair damage, very happy with my purchase

Not worth the money
Purchased yesterday, $199 from hair warehouse. Not worth the money. Doesnt reduce frizz, takes just as long to straighten as my cheap Remington. Has a weird cheap sound when you straighten, like it sounds more plastic and dodgy. Was really disappointed because Ive heard good reviews but not worth the money.

Absolutely loving it
It’s been 3 years I hv been using Muk230-IR.
So easy to use & super handy with no hair damage.Highly recommended
Specially with curly hairs it just takes few mins to straight.

Money for value - instant results
The hair straightener is well made. High performance, with smooth plates. I love the LED lighting. I have used many brands before. And they did not heat up as fast. If you don't have time to wait. Its a very good product to invest in.

OH MY GOSH
I have THICK hair. For every follicle I have 4 strands. It's foiled so it damages easily. Its fluffy and volumous and its hard to ever get it sleek.
Well! I used my 230IR today and holy moly! Salon quality results at home.
When I used my old hair straightener it was never flat, it would feel wirey and have lots of fuzz like I had put my hand in a power socket, but this is totally opposite.
It took 15 seconds to heat up and it displays the heat counting up to your requirement which I thought was cool.
There is a slight buzz which is the ionator working.
Im redundant at the moment so it was a lot of money and review reading to spend but ITS WORTH IT.

Straightening must have
This straightener makes doing my hair so quick and easy. I had used other brands but because of the thickness, I find I can do large sections at a time and so spend less time doing my hair. Really like it.

Best Straightener I've ever owned
This is by far the best straightener I've ever owned. Even over my previous GHD!
It's light weight, super quick to heat up, easy to use and straightens my hair in minutes.
I've had this one for years now and works just as it did when I purchased it.
Surprised at some of the negative reviews as I just could not be happier!
Love my MUK hair straightener. So easy to use, and straightens my hair perfectly. I have thick hair and works great. I'm sorry for those who don't think it works as mine works a treat.

Has to be the worst hair straightener I have ever used
I purchased my muk hair straightener after reading all these 5 Star reviews I’m sure most of these reviews are fake
The first straightener I received was the worst I have ever used
It pulls & drags through my hair
The plates do not meet up properly with a gap at one end. The 2nd one I received is much the same.
Im a professional hairdresser with over 30 years experience
A friends Kmart straightener does a better job than these
Purchased in July 2019 at EBAY store for $88.00.
Best straightener ever owned
Heats up quickly, less than 2 minutes. Straightens hair beautifully first time and curls great too. Hair feels healthy and still straight on second day. Have owned a ghd and this is just as good if not better.

Works on the tickets of hairs
I have very thick and coarse hair. I had many straighteners, but MUK is the only one that does the job strengthening my hear. It is making my hear sleek and shiny. I hade some that after a while heats up not only inside elements but the outside plastic. MUK is cold to touch on the outside and perfect set temp on the inside panels.
In combination with the professional hairdryer, MUK straightener works the best.
Purchased in February 2014 for $299.00.
absolutely loved this product! Works perfectly and makes my hair look amazing! I have purchased so many over time that never lived up to expectations, and now I have finally found the perfect straightener!

Nice hair straightener
It's easy to use and straightens hair fast. Its not the absolute best hair straightener that I have used and that is why I have givin 4 stars. Has a very long cord and heats up fast.

With an overwhelming majority of reviewers awarding the Muk 230-IR a 5-star rating, this hair straightener’s secret weapon – its far infrared lights inside the ceramic plate – seems to be working.
What reviewers liked about the Muk 230-IR:
- Its lightweight and compact design, which prevented the straightener from becoming too heavy to hold when straightening a full head of hair
- The option to adjust the temperature (from a range of 90 degrees -230 degrees)
- Hair looked shinier and in healthier conditioner than before using the straightener. This could be due to the negative ion generator, which according to Muk ‘infuses hair with shine'
- A quick heat-up time was appreciated, even with the straightener’s temperature set to high, e.g. 200 degrees
- Several reviewers made a direct comparison to their old GHD, and stated that their new Muk straightener performed far better.
