I don't think electronics are good buy from Amazon as I had to replace this product once and this one too is not working fine...no shine on hair as mentioned makes hair rough and dry n stops working most of the time...what to do now...
For Amazon I would give 5 stars..I got my straighter in a very good condition and working nicely till now and packaging was fine and good too.,and comparing to other sites,got this at cheapest of 2k price in July.And abt Phillips kerashine,I would just say,,as my hair r frizzy nature,I guess we must use hair serum or heat protection spray to avoid dry n frizziness.. I wish Amazon provide hair protection spray as gift to d buyers 😛
If you are purchasing for the first time, it's absolutely fantastic! I have been using a Remington straightener since 3 years. Compared to it I think Philips HP 8317 is okay, not better than the Remington. Overall it's advantage is Philips HP 8317 comes with kerashine and ionic technology which is really a great protection from damage to your hair. No need to apply any serum or heat protector.
I waited a good couple of months before posting the review on this product. Have used it extensively. It's extremely useful for wavy hair but not that effective on curly hair. Use of ample hair serum is necessary before ironing your hair. Since there is no heat regulation the device heats up fast and well so one should be careful before using it a multiple times otherwise it will burn your hair for sure. I'm happy with the product as it fits my purpose.
