Thumbs-UpAdvantages:Remington S9500 Review

  • Completely ceramic plates that will never pull or snag your hair, on the contrary, will look after it in the softest and most careful way.
  • The ability to heat up the unit up to 450 degrees F, which is a very big advantage for thick hair.
  • The swivel cord is long – makes the process more comfortable and easier.
  •  A variety of heat settings for different types of hair, plus there is also a display where you can see everything.
  • The unit is of a regular size but surprisingly lightweight and, therefore, easy to use.
  • Will not take much place in your room.


  • An automatic shut-off feature is a whole hour and it seems to be too long.

Almost all hair straighteners of the same price have the same features that is why they don’t impress anymore, especially those who work in a beauty industry. But there are also some new technologies and features, I would like to mention.

 Features and specifications:

–    is able to heat up like the hair straighteners in professional beauty salons (up to 450 degrees F).

–    The plates are completely made of ceramic whereas its competitors only partially.

–    Pearl infused ceramic is made to make your hair smooth, shiny, without pulling or snagging. In fact, it glides your hair 8 times smoother than other models.

–    An automatic shut-off feature

prosPositive comments, feedbacks, and reviews:

–    The long swivel cord is a really amazing feature as with my previous hair straightener I always had some issue dealing with tangling etc.

–    It simply makes my hair extremely smooth and I can’t stop looking at the mirror and look at this nice result.

–    Some users complained about the smell produced from the plates for the first month, but it is not the case with Remington. Moreover, the presence of so many heat settings will never let you burn or damage the hair.

–    I bought this one for my mother because of one-hour shut-off features as she is forgetful. But was really impressed by its work, that’s why I’m using it too.

–    Its maximum temperature is 450 degrees and you have to wait for about 30 seconds for it. But personally I start using it almost immediately and still the result is awesome. It has never snagged or pulled my hair.

–    I like modern stylish hair appliances and this one is like that. It is very slim and comfortable to hold in hand due to this feature. The buttons are also nicely placed that you don’t have even a little chance to push them by accident.

–    The unit is really lightweight and comfortable. I even take it with me when I travel and I’m not afraid of damaging or breaking it because the hinge lock protects it.

–    The ability to see everything you are doing and the settings you have chosen on the display is really wonderful.

–    When I started using Remington, my hair became more natural looking and above all shiny and smooth.

–    This hair iron lets me make any kind of styling with any settings in a very short period of time. I don’t have to get up early in the morning like I used to before. What else can a girl wish for?

–    I really had a problem with my long, frizzy and dry hair. I have tried everything. Different expensive conditioners and moistures plus expensive hair straighteners but nothing helped. As a miracle I got Remington as a gift from my parents and I just love it. It deals with my hair so fast, I even couldn’t imagine it was possible. Only with one or maximum two strokes the hair becomes straight and smooth and shiny. But what I like most off is that the result I can see the whole day.

–    I have a very long and curly hair, but this hair iron makes it straight in just no time. Very happy with the purchase.

–    Whatever temperature you set up or whatever settings you select the unit will never heat and the handle either. So you can not be afraid of burning your fingers or damaging the hair.

–    Though the plates are only 1 inch wide, they cope with my curls in just 15 minutes. Very happy to have it.

–    The frizziest part is always at the root, and this iron copes just perfect. Also, it makes the ends smooth too. So the hair is even and equally smooth, glide and shiny. The hair simply looks so healthy.

consNegative comments, feedbacks and reviews:

–    the shipping was very fast but when I opened the box the unit was all damaged and beaten up. When I plugged it in, of course, it didn’t work. And the worst thing that I have lost the receipt and can’t replace it with a new one. Maybe I will try to repair it.

–    To make the plates come together, I have to push really hard. Maybe it is only my problem ‘cos I haven’t heard the same cons from others.

–    An automatic shut-off feature is the whole one hour, but really it doesn’t look safe if the unit stays switched on for the whole hour. Some other models from Remington have one-minute automatic shut-off feature.

–    Every time I turn the hair iron on I have to set the settings over and over again. Some models stay locked on the temperature you used last time. And personally I almost always use the same temperature and don’t change it. For example, my old iron from BabyBliss had this feature.

Final verdict

From my point of view, considering all its advantages and minor disadvantages I can rate it as 4.8 stars out of 5.0. I know it is a high number, but this model really deserves it.

The Remington manufactures are improving and developing more and more with every day. They are trying to keep already existing features at their best shape and plus they are inventing something new. The design of every their model is just unique and can’t be compared with others. It is slim, light, easy to use, with multiple settings and great performance. All they are trying to do is to make their best for the customers, all the benefits are aimed at the buyers and later users. Their customer service is very friendly and will always help you with your problem if there is any.

Though I admit that there is only one little con – 1-hour automatic shut-off feature. If they make it about 30-40 minutes long that would be perfect and will make the Remington S 9500 an ideal hair straightener.

I do recommend to buy this Remingtom hair straightener as it is price-friendly and very durable. You will be also very impressed by its incredible results.
