Perfectly straight hair everyone

This is the best hair straightener for my wavy hair. Stays straight for longer with no dreaded kick outs at the end. Show details

Pretty basic

I recently bought one after my 13 year old GHD started dying. It’s OK. Nothing special. Very surprised that it doesn’t have an auto turn off feature- surprising omission considering my decade old GHD did! Show details

Terrible hair straightener

I am so very disappointed with my silver bullet keratin 230 . I have used it once, my hair was still thick after going over and over my hair. The floating plates do not grip the hair, you cant read the heat dial it's black on black and hidden inside the plate Show details

Short circuited, very dangerous

Started off working ok (which is why I didn't give it 1 star), but out of the blue it exploded in my teenage daughter's hand. It was plugged in and as it was lifted there was a large flash and a bang. Very scary. It was only a lightly used hair straightener and definitely not used to the point that the electronics could have been worn out. Even then, it shouldn't explode like that! It was well cared for. This happened not long after the warranty ran out (of course). Really disappointed given the price.  Show details

Best iron ever!!

I had used ghd products for years and recently switched to Silver Bullet and it’s the best decision ever.
It heats up so quickly and glides smoothly through my hair. The ghd used to stick, but this one is very smooth. My hair stays straight for days! Excellent product Show details

SB has converted me from GHDs

Needed a straightener that went to 230’ to do keratin smoothing treatments as GHD do not go that high.
I feel GHD has gone off the boil, there’s are brilliant! Show details

0-230 in seconds!

Wasn’t sure about these straighteners at first as the Titanium plates are far different to the ceramic plates we have been used to ... But I am loving these straighteners now! Show details

Good for thick coarse hair

This straightener heats up in about 20seconds to 210C. Smoothens hair well and as it’s light weight it’s very easy to curl the hair. As it has titanium plates it glides smooth without any tugging or pulling.

The only reason why I haven’t given it a 5 star rating is because it didn’t wow me for the price I paid for it. I have another titanium straightener which I purchased for a lesser price and it has the same effect. When I set the temperature to 230C it didn’t really fasten the straightening process.

I like it but if I compare with other titanium straighteners it does not have any added benefits considering the extra price. Show details

BEWARE: read this BEFORE buying a silver bullet hair straightener. Terrible product

I bought 2 of these, one for myself and one for my daughter in Oct 2018. They worked for about 2 months then started faulting. they BOTH had times were they did not heat up at all, or heat up a little bit but useless to be of any good, and then sometimes heated up perfectly. They are completely unreliable and the fact that TWO of them started doing this over time....yet still only 5 months old shows up that the product is bad. I will NEVER ever be wasting my money on a Silver bullet hair straightener again. Very Very unreliable and constantly lets you down right when you desperately needed it to work. Show details

Ok quality

The straightener works well for about 2-3 months and then it started to become rusty and dirt started to build up in the ceremic surface. It works great for the price but however it can be better Show details

Not happy with purchase

After reading reviews I was exciting to get the silver bullet 230 titanium. But I'm so disappointed and even called the store where I purchased to get an exchange. It catches my hair doesn't leave a nice shine like previous straighteners have. My hair appears to be more damage from using it and I've had to start using Olaplex alot more on my hair.

Awesome product - no regrets!

Purchase this iron! The heat levels are great because you can customize the level to the thickness of your hair. It's narrow enough that you can get the strands from the root and not have to deal with the crease an iron can make in your hair if you start further down. This iron does not pull my hair out at all and really works. I was shocked for the price that this iron would be so great but I read the reviews and I agree with them all. It really was a great purchase. I have naturally wavy to curly hair that's fine in texture, and I straightened my hair when we were on vacation in the heat and humidity in St. Thomas and it worked great!

Best hair straightener ever!!!

and I still don't like doing my hair. But, I have two daughters with thick course hair, this straightener has worked magic on their strands. This cuts hair time in half. Instead of blow drying after a wash, I let their hair air dry overnight.
