Infrared heat works to heat the heat the hair from the inside out providing healthier styling, less damage and faster styling.
My thoughts: To be honest, I was in debate about getting a flat iron since I have straight hair. Of course, it's not super, duper straight but good enough... hehe~ I thought it didn't hurt since most of the time I take a shower at nights and sleep on my head. I wake up in the morning and it's more wavy than straight. I thought it'll be nice to straighten that up... hehe~ :)
Speaking of on/off and adjustable buttons, I love that there are degrees of temperature. The lightest is 180 and the hottest is 450. If you have thin hair, I definitely don't recommend 450. For someone like me with thick hair, 450 is fine... hehe~ To be honest, I prefer the 450 for the quick straightening. I cold straighten my hair within 5-10 minutes... wheee~
I love that the flat iron has a swivel cord! I have old curling irons and hair dryers (I need a new one!) without swivel cords. Let me tell you it's a hot mess... lol~ Without swivel cords, the cords get tangle up and it's hard to untangle *sigh*.
I also noticed the ceramic plates move while you squeeze it. I use to own a cheap flat iron until I gave it to my friend (it's still good by the way). You cannot move the plates. Maybe because it's not ceramic... hehe~ Having movable plates is a good thing because it's easy to use on the hair.
Now for the hair results...
* Sleek,shiny black color flat iron; it looks professional.
* Movable ceramic plates.
* Different degrees of temperature, 180-450.
* Swivel cord.
* It straightens hairs decently and quickly.
* It curls really well.
* On/off and temperature button next to the ceramic plates.
Would I buy this again: Yes, but I hope I don't have too. I hope it lasts a long time... hehe~
