I actually bought myself this mini flat iron a few years ago to save suitcase space on a five-day international trip I wanted to handle as a carry-on-only situation – and y’all, although you wouldn’t think that a standard-size flat iron takes up that much space, the difference packing this mini version made was huge. It’s been on several other trips with me since…and sometimes, I even use it at home instead of my everyday flat iron. That’s how good it is.
Promising review: “Pleasantly surprised! Super small, so it is great for travel, but don't let its size fool you! Initially I was afraid to purchase due to reviews of its size, but it didn't disappoint. I bought this with plans to get the full size later, but this straightener works perfect for my frizzy, unruly, medium-length hair in no time. I had an expensive Chi for years, and it was amazing – I thought nothing would compare, especially this travel straightener. However, it works just as well, if not better.” —MrsJones
