My first glance of this straightener, I saw a simple, portable and standard size model that came in a nice package. The packaging may differ in color of either red or white. Mine came in red.
It was about 31 cm in length. It features an on/off switch, an adjustable temperature light.
Its heating plate inch wide and are made up of high quality long lasting ceramic which provide a very smooth surface so that your hair glides through easily. The ceramic tourmaline that gives a really lovely shine to the hair. You are ensured to have a glowing and smooth texture throughout. It is also good to note that the ceramic plates heat the hair from the inside and lock the moisture into the outermost part of the hair. The sizes of the plates are suitable for all types and lengths of hair, also narrow enough for fringes.
The heat can be indicated with the LED light. When it is switched on you will notice a red light which quickly turns green when it is heated up letting you know that it is ready for use. You don’t have to be the slightest bit worried about overheating or getting your hair burnt because this model has heat balance microprocessors. They continuously monitor the temperature of the plates and automatically adjust the temperature for an even distribution of heat.
The few hair straighteners I have used over the years usually just had an on/off switch with no particular settings. With this one, I can adjust the temperature to suit my hair type, which means the temperature can be easily increased or decreased to your liking.
It also has a swivel power cord that easily twists without tangling.
The temperature ranges from 140 — 450 ºF suitable for all hair types. Quite often you have to deal with a straightener with a fixed temperature but this definitely is different. Ions are emitted by the tourmaline stones which cause the hair to shine. Not to mention that it also has a dual voltage of 110v — 220v.
This model is a definite favorite of mine as it has always given me the results I needed every time it was used.
So here are some advantages I have put together after having used this product:
- First and foremost it is very affordable.
- It is very portable, and comes with a small bag for traveling.
- The plates are made up of materials which ensure a smooth and shiny finish, which is exactly what everyone desires when straightening their hair.
- The ceramic coating creates a smooth surface that allows the hair to glide through easily.
- The sizes of the plates are suitable for all different types and lengths of hair, also being narrow enough for bangs.
- It doesn’t take long to heat up and LED light conveniently changes a color of giving an indication as soon as it’s ready to use.
- It has an adjustable temperature to suit any hair type, so the risk overheating and burning hair are eliminated.
- Compatible dual voltage.
- Swivel cord that does not twist.
- After use, it cools down quickly.
- A glove that is heat preventive.
- Heat resistant case. The plastic behind the heated plates does not get too hot.
- It has the ability to straighten and curl your hair depending on what you might want to wear.
- Fewer passes through the hair are needed to get the desired results, as it does its work really efficiently.
I could go on and on but one thing I know as a certainty is the fact that I haven’t ever used a better product than this. It is lightweight, very easy to use and you can get it in different colors.
It actually comes with accessories that make it even more compelling. They include a small bag that comes in handy when traveling, a heat protective glove which works as a shield from the heat and an argan oil leave-in hair treatment useful for protecting your hair. Talk about a complete package!
During the summer I visited a friend of mine who lives in a different city, so I got the chance to use the whole package. Of course the pouch came in handy for the trip and when we were getting ready for a girls night, I simply applied some of the argan oil for moisture and its protective measures, put on the glove and worked the straightener through my hair and in few minutes I had a beautifully glowing hair ready for the night.
Did I forget to mention that this is an all-weather product? Come rain, come shine; come summer, come winter, it is there to serve you adequately. In other words, it is in fact very durable.
The only issue to take note of is the absence of an automatic shut off timer. So you must switch it off and unplug it after use. Also, let it cool off before storing it properly.
I highly recommend this HSI professional hair straightener. You can be sure there will be no hair breakage, no overheating and a perfect finish on your hair.
I wish you beautiful and healthy hair!
