As a disappointed owner of the Remington Wet 2 Straight 1 Inch Plate Straightener, I was excited to try my stepdaughter's version, the Remington Wet 2 Straight Curved Plate Straightener. I had hopes that what it lacked in anti frizz and straightening performance, it would make up for in creating a smoother, more natural looking finish to my long hair.

The Remington Wet 2 Straight Curved Plate Straightener has many of the same features as the flat plate straightener, including steam vents to allow wet hair to dry, numerous heat settings, and "ions for no frizz". The added bonus of the curved plate is supposed to help the user create "curves, flicks and add volume" without the use of an additional styling tool like a blow dryer or curling iron.

Unfortunately, despite my excitment at the prospect of adding flicks to my hair, this Remington product was an overall disappointment, like its flat cousin.

The Remington Wet 2 Straight Curved Plate Straightener takes an excessive amount of time to dry hair, and for my hair, does not reduce frizz or "fly aways" either. As for flicks and curves, the product is too heavy and too awkward to be used like a curling iron. Its design makes it hard to manipulate in the manner you'd manipulate a curling iron to get those curves and highly fashionable end-of-hair flicks.

On an upnote, just as its flat partner, it does do a great job of straightening dry hair, with only a few passes to each lock, and the curved plate, although not good at the flicks, does create a smoother, more natural finish at the ends of your hair. No more severely straight hair ending in highly visible split ends.
