Cortex is a brand that they have at TJMaxx and Marshalls. I like browsing the beauty section sometimes because of the good deals on various products, like CHI. I saw this straightener, and decided to try it because for $24, I think that`s quite a deal! Some straighteners can hit up to $50+ dollars. This was a test run on a whim, but I thought it looked promising.
It`s a beautiful cherry red color! With a sort of quilted pattern on it. It has a swivel cord, which is important to a lot of people when it comes to these heat styling tools because it`s a hazard and inconvenient if the cord gets tangled while you`re doing your hair. It has a number of heat settings; up to 450. The on and off switch is easy to switch, and there`s a green light that tells you the straightener is on, which is important, so you remember to turn it off and also so others know that it`s on. It heats up within 30 seconds, so I like that speed aspect. It`s great for curling or straightening your hair.
My only complaint is that the paddle area isn`t very big, so it takes me a while to get through all my hair, but this is the size for most standard straighteners. In the future, I plan to invest in a straightener with a larger paddle.
Overall for $24 you can`t lose, and this works amazing! I have had it for almost two years, and I really love it :)
