Considering and testing different rectifier options, I concluded that most of them are not universal. The case is, each type of hair, depending on the density or degree of damage, requires different technical characteristics, temperatures, type, and even composition of iron plates.
It’s always quite difficult for me to draw unambiguous conclusions. However, the number of positive reviews on the product that we’ll look at here suggests the need to at least consider it in as much detail as possible.
So, we’re talking about the Remington S5500 Flat Iron. What are its key features?
Of course, first of all, I would like to say about the low cost of this good, that already raises suspicions. The modern consumer is accustomed to the fact that cheap goods are also of low quality, so you shouldn’t pay attention to them. However, I suggest that you don’t jump to conclusions and omit this characteristic. Let’s pretend there is no price and return to this question at the end of the article.
The iron can heat up to 310 to 410 degrees Fahrenheit, which is quite a lot and can be dangerous for some hair types. Fortunately, it has a built-in display for controlling the temperature and the ability to adjust it yourself.

The quality of the plates
The plate material is standard – ceramics. However, titanium is part of the alloy, which provides the same anti-static effect. That is, your hair won’t magnetize after straightening. You need to understand that this effect doesn’t save you from ultra-high temperatures, so you should carefully monitor the degree while using the iron.
That is the question. The seller provides special instructions for this device using but gives a minimum warranty – just for 3 months. The only justification for this circumstance is the very high rating of the product and a large number of reviews on the store website.
The quality of the material
Here, perhaps, I have nothing to please you with. If the quality of the plates cannot be considered low, then the body of the device is made of ordinary plastic, which, according to several users, gets very hot.
Perhaps this is an individual problem because my device cannot be called too hot. I also had no problem holding this as the lightweight plastic takes the extra weight off my hand. So what is the verdict?
Pros and Cons
I believe that this product may well be purchased for long-term use even with so low price. However, I would insist that each customer personally test the usability of this right in the store. Unfortunately, many shops prohibit this. That’s why I hope that this review could be useful to you and answered the most difficult questions.
Great shopping and great hairstyles!
