I had a wet-to-straight straightener a few years back. I liked it overall and used it for a few years, but I found that it didn't actually dry my hair after a few uses. I ended up having to blow dry my hair, then straighten it afterwards.
My hair is also really thick, so I ended up having to go up into one of the really high heat settings that was meant for wet hair -- which I'm guessing wasn't doing my hair any favors.
The plates on my wet-to-straight flat iron also started to get some strange texture and color after a while. Maybe they were made out of a cheap material, and the top layer peeled off?
It got the job done, for sure, and I got one of the earlier models, so maybe this plate problem has been fixed. Overall, though, I didn't think it was that much better than the regular straighteners -- so if it costs a lot more, I'd pass.
