Overview:

The amount of requests I got to review this tool was overwhelming! I really hoped to like it, but for the high price tag and the lack of versatility, I found this tool to be a disappointment.

Comparison to standard:

I found this tool to be not as versatile or functional as your standard flat iron. In the video, I demonstrate how the BioIonic 10x gives flawless effortless results for a similar price tag while also providing more versatility and less damage to the hair. With the Tyme Iron, the learning curve and the roughness of the packaging makes achieving my desired result more difficult and time consuming than using a standard flat iron.

Overall, it is easier to learn how to use a regular Flat Iron and it provides more versatility. IMO This is an intriguing design concept that ultimately fails to perform better than a regular flat iron and more finicky learning curve. I understand that one can learn (and many of you have, which is great) to use this hair iron and then it works great, but I would challenge individuals to put same amount of effort into learning how to use a regular flat iron and then re-evaluate the whole concept. For this reason IMO this hair styling tool does not belong in the luxury category. I would suggest Kristin Ess flat iron over this one with titanium plates – it is smoother and cheaper.

With five heat settings, the iron works on any hair type. From fine to coarse, or naturally curly to straight, your curls will hold longer than ever before. The TYME Iron styles any hair length, making it the last iron you’ll ever need.
