Product Review: EpSA PRO Flat Hair Iron

7/14/2015 02:19:00 PM

I've been using and abusing the JML PRO Ceramic Hair Straightener I purchased from Watson's almost a decade ago. I love it dearly however, it was about time for the unit to retire. It definitely served it's purpose and served me well. So I recently picked up the EpSA Amber PRO Flat Hair Iron. I never intended on posting this topic however after getting a lot of questions about it, I figured maybe a product review will be better than answering each query individually.

I got mine for Php 1200 (excluding SF) from BelNikShoppe, an instagram seller. Note that price is subject to change without prior notice. Click here to view the seller's IG profile.

You won't find fancy pictures on the box. Just the brand's logo/name and a line saying "Titanium plates anti static to reduce frizziness reduces damage to hair." There was a little bit of struggle reading and understanding that. I mean come on, is it too hard to insert punctuation marks?!? Edit much?!?

Do these plates look titanium to you? Nope, didn't think so.

The width is quite small as you can see, it can only cover my pinky and ring finger.

It has 5 heat settings. Very easy to change from one temperature to another.

While a lot of people will be bothered with that very obvious gap, I wasn't. I have a firm grip and can press evenly so I didn't mind. Maybe it was a factory defect? Maybe the other units don't have it?

I could tell that the product is made to last just by looking at the cord. And oh, no need for an adapter!!!

Its ergonomic design makes it suitable for personal and professional use. Look at that thumb grip! I don't see this in a lot of well known brands.

It is very easy to handle and secure. Even when I'm not looking, I can still find the right way to hold it regardless of the hand I'm using.

I love this built in hook - making it easy to hang the unit somewhere accessible and far away from getting someone (or something) burned. Wish they made the material thicker though.

  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to hold and use
  • Lightweight
  • Curved edges allow easy curling
  • Heats up quickly even when changing settings
  • Seems durable
  • Plates are too small
  • Doesn't indicate if "titanium" plates can be used on wet hair (though I wouldn't use it for that purpose anyway)
  • Moderate cool down time

I highly recommend this product especially for those who do not want to comprise quality even with a tight budget. I hope this review helped any readers out there looking to buy this flat iron. If you have any other questions feel free to contact me, information is in my bio.
