I received this as a gift when I was about 7 months pregnant with my daughter who happens to be named Zoe. I thought it was cute getting a new straightener with the name Zoe. I was hoping that it would work on my crazy hair and it exceeded my expectations. I have frizzy curly hair so I am always on the search for the perfect hair straightener. This one gets hot enough to tame my frizz and gives me the oh so straight strands that I so desperately seek. I use this almost every other day so it has been very reliable. I do notice that the whole straightener gets kind of hot all around so that is the only downfall. Other than that I love my Zoe straightener!
