Performance and Versatility
You have to really like the versatile heat setting range that this flat iron offers you. It can be set anywhere from 190°F to 450°F. The 1 1/4” heater plates it has offers a lot of versatility as far as the hair lengths you can straighten with this flat iron too. It features floating plates for easy styling and these plates are ceramic/tourmaline crystal infused too.
This flat iron is also ready to use in no time. Thanks to its ceramic coated heat plates it is ready to use in just a few seconds. That’s great for those people with black hair that need to get ready fast each day.
Another great feature it has is its gentle far infrared heat technology. It has an integrated infrared heat strip built right into its plates.
Ease of use and Convenience
All the edges of this product are either rounded or beveled. This means your hair won’t catch on it as you are using it nor will any of your clothes or body parts. It features one of the largest digital temperature displays you will find on a flat iron too. Although the buttons to change the temperature are in an awkward spot they work very smoothly.
This flat iron is very easy to move around as you straighten black hair with it too. That is due to its generous size 9-foot power cord with swivel end. This is a very safe flat iron to use also thanks to its stay cool design and its built-in automatic shutoff. After 60 minutes of non-use, it will shut off so you don’t have to worry about it becoming a fire hazard.
Why is the NuMe Megastar Flat Iron so Effective for Straightening Black Hair?
Black hair is notorious for having strong protein bonds which are hard to break down so you can straighten. The best way to do this is with high heat and the NuMe Megastar Flat Iron has high heat to spare. Its 450°F max heat is high enough to make even the most stubborn black hair strands become cooperative as you straighten your hair.
Its tourmaline/ceramic crystal infusion works great too. It enables this flat iron to heat evenly so there are no damaging hot spots. It will also take the static electricity out of your black hair, help it retain its moisture better and give it some shine as you straighten it too.
Warranty Support and Potential Concerns with the NuMe Megastar Flat Iron
The one-year warranty this product comes with is not so good, to say the least. It is to the short side for flat irons in its price range. The 30-day no questions asked return policy makes up for this a little bit.
The short warranty was not the only thing we did not like about this flat iron. The buttons that control the heat setting cannot be used why this flat iron is in use. That is because they are located inside the hinged body before the heat plates. That makes it very inconvenient if you need to raise or lower the temperature of this flat iron while it’s in use.
Wrapping up our Thoughts on the NuMe Megastar Flat Iron
We have to see most of us here were very impressed with how well-designed the NuMe Megastar Flat Iron is. It has very many good features and only a few trivial drawbacks. Its 450°F max heat provides the high heat necessary to straighten black hair. Its tourmaline/ceramic crystal infusion allows it heat plates to heat up evenly and they help keep your hair from getting damaged as you use this flat iron too. This product can even be used anywhere you travel in the world thanks to its dual voltage capability.
The NuMe Megastar Flat Iron is definitely worth considering when you are looking for the best flat iron to straighten black hair simpler.
