Today, I’d like to share my humble thoughts on the L’ANGE Aplatir straightener. I first saw this brand on Facebook. I wasn’t sure how trustworthy it really was (because, y’know, Facebook ads). But, I thought the look of their products was sharp, so I checked out their website.

L’ange is the French word for angel (you immediately peak my interest when you involve the French language) and their site boasts that you can “become a hair goddess with l’ange!” Apart from that, there is little about the origins of the brand on their website. That, mixed with their higher price point made me pretty leery of the brand. I exited out of the tabs and continued my morning scroll through Facebook.
The next day, I found myself reaching for my battered, hand-me-down CHI. The plates were worn, the indicator light busted, and the swivel cord eternally twisted and knotted. I was long overdue a new straightener, but, let’s be real, why buy one when you have a perfectly squeeky one? Thus, the search began. Being a pretty steady CHI user since the beginning of my hair styling career, I kind of wanted to shake things up. My initial thought: GHD. But with Christmas fast approaching and my upcoming study abroad, there was just no room to shell out $200. And then I remembered L’ANGE. I went back to their site to check out their line of straighteners. La Revé caught my eye, so I went out on a search for honest reviews…only to be discouraged by the lack thereof.
Granted, there are copious amounts of reviews and tutorials using their curling wands, however, the majority of the ones I found all include a nice little promo code. Great for the buyer, but it makes me skeptical of the trustworthiness of the user’s opinion. These promo codes ranged anywhere from 10-40% anything. *insert major suspicion* Was this a reliable brand? Are their products fairly priced if they are willing to give 40% off codes to anyone? Are their products even made of dependable materials? I wasn’t convinced.
But then I came across a comment on one of their posts by someone saying they had found L’ANGE products at TJ Maxx. Jackpot! Low and behold, I snagged my snow white Aplatir straightener for $30 from Marshals! This was the perfect solution for my dilemma, I was able to test out the product and I wouldn’t be out any money if the brand ended up being a Facebook hoax (I’m looking at you, “free” watch that didn’t work).
The Aplatir straightener is made with tourmaline infused ceramic plates, which mean smoother, shinier hair! It also has a temperature dial so you can control how much heat you put on your hair! (PRO-TIP: use a lower heat setting to save your luscious locks!)
I also love the feel of this straightener; it’s not too bulky and has a great finish to it. You can read all the nitty-gritty details here.
All I can say is, I’m about 2 months in and I am very pleased! I’m now anxious to try some of their other products (there’s a purple shampoo? HOLA)! While I’m still not entirely convinced about the price of their products, I definitely think L’ANGE is a trustworthy brand! Catching one of the abundant promo codes is a good way for you to test out their products (or hit up your local TJ Maxx)!
***If you’ve made it all the way to the end of this post, chances are you’re in the market for a great straightener! I have since invested in the Drybar Tress Press flat iron! This straightener is no joke! I use it to curl and straighten and it doesn’t pull or tug on my hair. Not to mention, my hair feels stronger since I switched 😉 I highly recommend the Tress Press over the Aplatir!
