Agave Vapor Styling Iron with Vapor Infusion Duo
A good iron
I just used this today and only one time. I have long, thick, coarse hair. I use flat irons to curl my hair, not straighten. I have an FHI iron, and I like it,but it left my hair dry and crispy after curling even though I only use it twice a week. The Agave iron interested me because I hoped it would infuse moisture into my hair when using it. I already use the Agave styling oil and it is amazing.
The iron worked well. It is a little bigger than most irons. The plates are wider than the traditional inch. I used it on the highest setting and did not have the burned hair smell that I usually get with my FHI. However, it does get very hot and found it difficult to hold where I normally grip my iron because the plates were so hot. I will have to get used to adjusting my grip. It curled my hair well, but as the day has gone on, I've noticed that the curls are not holding up as long. With my FHI, the curls would stay for days until I washed my hair.
My hair is softer and shinier after using the Agave iron. It doesn't smell, feel, or look damaged like it does with my FHI after styling. I will have to use it a few more times before I decide whether to keep it. So far, the pros outweigh the cons.
