Switching from Chi StraightenerOct 29, 2010
By R. Hammer
I have been using the Remingston S9500 for the past three days.
You should know that I have been using the CHI ceramic straigtener for the past two years and I noticed that my CHI was starting to take longer and longer to straighten my hair. I was excited to try a new straightener, but was leary that it wouldn't have the same performance that my Chi has been able to provide me. Here are my observations:
PROS: - Heats up QUICK. I have no problem hitting the maximum 450 degree setting in less than a minute! - I LOVE the ability to actually choose a specific temperature. The CHI only had a sliding temperature gauge, with no actual settings. - The 450 degree setting really flattens my hair QUICK. It seems a lot hotter than my CHI
CONS: - The handle isn't as thick so I have to hold my hand towards the back otherwise it gets really hot on the outside. My CHI never got hot on the outside like the Remington does. This is a minor annoyance as I have to be sure my hand is all the way to the back or my hand starts getting hot. Sometimes it's easier to keep the blades closed by having you hand a little further towards the middle. It just makes you fatigue a little quicker when you have to squeeze harder because your hand is at the edge.
All in all this is a great straightener and I think the price point is much more competitive than the CHI.

Hot!Nov 29, 2010
I've been a house model at Vidal Sassoon for more years than I care to remember and as such am very familiar with the virtues of the flat iron (it helps make a geometric cut look even stronger). I asked my stylist back in 1999 or 2000 who manufactured the iron she used and on her recommendation I purchased the same one (the top of the line at that time), an Italian-made Solano Sapphire Iron, from a beauty supply store. I've been using that (obviously well-made) iron ever since with no problems but I came to observe that my stylist was now using something else and so asked her about it.
It seems that in the last 10 or so years, ceramic plates have become the hot (pun intended) new technology in flat irons--they apparently treat the hair more gently at high temperatures than the non-stick metal plates. She now uses and recommends the irons made by GHD; they, however (like the Sapphire), are quite expensive and I just couldn't justify spending the money when there was nothing wrong with my Sapphire, other than the fact that it was old. Needless to say, I couldn't push "Send Me This" fast enough when I was offered the opportunity to test drive the Remington S9500.
Given that my Sapphire just plugs in, there's a lot to like about the S9500. For one thing, the cord itself swivels--a major convenience. And there's a power switch, too, as well as a safety function that kicks in after an hour (a long time, to my way of thinking) to turn the unit off. But what I like best is that the temperature is adjustable and ranges from 300º to 450º F--an enormous advantage over my Sapphire which has only one temperature (I don't know what it is). I have very fine, color-treated hair and it turns out that pretty much every temperature in the low range (300º - 340º F) gets me the results I want and quickly, too (i.e., I need not iron longer in order to compensate for a lower temperature). All of these functions, including heat-up time (signaled by an audible but discreet beep), are indicated on an easy-to-read digital display and the unit locks in a closed position for storage. All in all, I couldn't be more pleased.
It's worth noting that when the temperature lock function is engaged, the power button doesn't work until the temperature is unlocked. Also, for those new to flat ironing, do NOT use a flat iron on wet, or even damp, hair. Flat ironing is meant to be done ONLY on dry hair. The Remington S9500 is an excellent flat iron for the price and comes with a limited 4-year warranty to help sweeten the deal. As someone who has been flat-ironing her hair for at least the past 10 years or so, I can say with some authority that this is a good product.

This is a great product if you are realistic about your hair type and expectationsOct 31, 2010
By a buyer of stuff I was just given the opportunity to try this flat iron. I am of mixed race heritage.I am African American and Irish American.My hair is very frizzy,very dry,thick,coarse,and curly.My hair is in it's natural state and not chemically straightened. The length is to my lower back.
The iron comes in a nice package with a small instruction sheet.The cord is quite long and conveniently swivels.The iron is very light weight and easy to handle.The temperature control buttons and the power button are perfectly located.The temperature display is large and easy to read.The iron heats very quickly and beeps to let you know it has achieved the desired temperature.The plates are very smooth and a soft pink color.There is a sliding lock near the cord end of the barrel.I found it difficult to engage the lock.
I tried this on freshly washed and air dried hair. This iron is very light weight and I felt that I could not press the plates tight around my hair.The barrel also becomes very hot and I could not put my hand on it to "help" my hair through. It glides very easily through my hair.I had to go over the pieces a few times to get them straight. Since the iron is light weight you can work swiftly and with practice complete your whole head quickly.
Results wise it straightened my hair but I felt it left it dry and more crisp than I had wished.Also within 2 hours inside my house my hair started to revert (it felt puffier by the minute) I used no product so perhaps that may have made a difference.
Overall, I think if you have just wavy or slightly frizzy hair it will probably produce fantastic results.If you have coarse,dry,crisp or damaged hair I don't this is going to transform your hair to shiny, soft and swingy hair.Great product if your realistic about your hair type and your expectations.

Already Broken!Jun 20, 2011
By R. Ford
I ordered this straightener about 3 months ago. At first, I absolutely LOVED it because of the temperature display and how hot it got. It has only been 3 months and I only use it about twice a week and it has already crapped out completely. You definitely get what you pay for. Major waste of money!

Easy to use and gentle on the hairNov 02, 2010
By Z Hayes There are many reviews written about this product in great detail, so I will just mention a couple of things that worked and didn't work for me:
The iron heats up very quickly, in about 15 seconds, and that is a definite plus if one is in a hurry. It looks good, and glides easily and smoothly over the hair (those infused pearl things really make a difference I guess). I have thick black hair, and I had to use it at its maximum setting in order to straighten my hair, and I have shoulder-length hair, so it took me about half an hour to get results I was satisfied with.
I like that this straightener does not give out scary sounds when I apply it to my hair (some other brands I've used give out alarming sounds as though my hair is getting burned!), here the sounds are minimal and like I mentioned earlier, gentle on the hair. I actually felt my hair's texture was being smoothened as I ran the straightener through my hair.
The negative is that, the automatic turn-off takes a while, and I've solved this problem by simply unplugging the unit after use, which is probably the safest thing to do anyway. Users are cautioned against wrapping the cord around the unit which poses a problem for me, as I like all my bathroom essentials to be neatly stored away without having cords getting tangled with other stuff, but I guess I can live with it. The straightener is also not as wide as many other brands I've used, which is a problem for someone with thick, long hair, but once again, depending on your expectations, this might not be a significant problem to some.
All in all, I like the gentle effect it has on my hair, and the quick warm-up time.
