     Im an African American with thick coarse hair. I haven't had a relaxer in a year but you could not tell after using laeker slim.  It glides through my hair really smooth and theres no need to go over twice. I use the 400 setting and it does a great job heating and maintaining. Love it!!
    I have naturally thick/curly hair that frizzes if left to its own devices so a straightening iron is something I always keep in my possession.
    My last one took a nose dive off the counter and stopped getting up to temp so I had to quickly replace it.
    I waited one day for it to arrive and got right to work seeing what I got for the money.
    Yessssss! Once it got to temp (I like 450 degrees) which took no time at all, it worked its magic.
    My hair is long so it takes almost 30 min to get each chunk of hair that I divide up, but the end results are worth it to me(Saved almost half the time than my previous chi hair straightener), My hair is soft, smooth, and a lot less frizz.

    I've owned and used this straightener for 3+ years about every other day. It's been AMAZING! Straight, sleek, polished hair every time. I love the longer plates because I have long, thick hair and it speeds up the process :)
