Hair straightener, though not the most useful, but such a cool device! With it, I can straighten hair to Asian smoothness, and I can twist curls with it. If you are considering purchasing a styler, then pay attention to the material of the plates, their width and temperature. Other characteristics, like the manufacturer, in my opinion, are not so important.
Lucky with a consultant
My hair is not fluffy and curly. Why do I need an iron then? Yes, they are naughty! At the ends, half by itself twists in one direction, half in the other. And so you want your hair to be smooth, shiny and completely smooth.
Without a styler can not do, I decided, and went to the hardware store. Usually, by the way, I read reviews on products of interest to me. But the choice of these devices on the Internet was so huge that I did not waste time reading.
Moreover, what if I choose a model, and in the store it does not turn out, what can I run around looking for in the whole city? In the store I came across a competent sales assistant. She asked what I want from the styler and how often I will use it.
As a result, I left the store with the VITEK VT-2307 Aqua Ceramic Chocolate hair straightener, having paid 1,200 rubles for it. Now, by the way, this model is cheaper. I chose the following parameters.
I planned to roast hair no more than once or twice a week. Therefore, from the proposed options for coating plates, I stopped immediately on ceramics. Unlike metal, ceramic coating warms more evenly, which means it does less harm to hair.
There were models with a Teflon coating in the store – styling products do not stick to this. And they stick to mine, yes. But I easily clean the forceps with a standard napkin. Marble, tourmaline, ionization – in the plates of professional irons.
I chose my tongs with a working surface width of 25 mm. The consultant told me that for the length of hair on the shoulder blade is wider and not necessary. The narrowest surface is 15 mm and is suitable for straightening bangs or short haircuts.
The temperature range of my device is 120-200 degrees. My hair is thick, I picked up the optimal temperature for myself – 180 degrees.
By the way, if there is no regulator, the forceps heat up to 200 degrees by default. Of course, the hotter the plate, the quicker the hair is straightened, but the more it hurts.
Other pros and one minus
In my iron there is a button on-off. In principle, it is convenient if you need to escape from the hair, then it is not necessary to pull the device out of the network.
Further indicator of heating, no doubt, the right thing! When the iron has reached the desired temperature, the red wait light turns green.
Another plus is that the device heats up in just a minute. This is not a Soviet ployka for you, which needed a lot of time to disperse!
The styler cord is quite long and swivel at the base of the device.
It is very convenient that the plates are rounded at the edges – no wrinkles and even more: it is with this form of plates that you can not only straighten your hair, but also make curls!
Well, now a minus. On my styler there is no latch connecting the plates, although there are some cheaper models. The tongs are open all the time, so it’s not very convenient to keep them. I keep them in my own box.
Now, by the way, I look after the conical curling iron. Maybe you advise?
