Pros: quick heat up, straightens dry hair well, wide range of temperature, works on wet, damp, and dry hair
Cons: can leave wet hair with frizz, doesn't work as well on wet hair

I've been wanting a straightener for a while now. It's not that I need it for making my hair straighter, as I have long straight hair. However, I use it for getting the frizz out and making it look sleek and shiny. I have had my Remington Wet 2 Straight Hot Iron for about 3 weeks now, and I love it.

It's very simple to understand. There is a little spin nodule for the heat, and it is on a scale of 0-30. The range you should use is based on whether your hair is: Wet (20-30), Damp (15-25), or Dry (10-20). From there, it is more a personal preference. I tend to use one of the lower settings for each of the ranges; as I have a finer hair texture and I don't want to damage my hair. 

After you decide on your heat setting you just flip the switch to turn it on. It generally takes about a minute or less to obtain the designated setting.

Although I love the wet to dry feature, it's also my one and only downside to the product. When I use the product on dry hair, I get a sleek and smooth look. However, if I use it on damp or wet hair, I have frizz afterwards. However, I have found using the right styling products can help to combat this problem.

If you're unprepared it also has steam vents for when you use it on wet hair. This helps direct the flow of the steam to prevent burns. However, due to the size of the styling device it can make it hard to get closer to your head. Thus you don't always completely dry your hair. Plus it can take a few swipes rather than the single one you can use when your hair is dry.

I recommend the Remington Wet 2 Straight Hot Iron to anyone looking for a normal straightener. It works great at creating that sleek and straight look. However, I would only recommend it for those wanting to use it on dry hair. Otherwise, you could still end up with frizz, unless you have the right styling products nearby.

    The Remington Wet 2 Straight Hot Iron is an incredible product. I have had mine for about three years, and I always get the results I want for my hair. There are different levels of heat that you can set the straightener to. It ranges from 0-30, 30 being the hottest. Read more
