This is the first hair straightener I have ever had. My hair is long, past the middle of my back and it has never really held a curl good. I once got a perm that literally started falling out before I got back to the car in the parking lot! It is fairly straight on it's own and I never thought about straightening it.
The opportunity to review the Professional Infrared Flat Iron from Xtava had me curious as to whether it would make that much difference.... WOW and boy howdy! What a difference! I LOVE what it does! It makes my hair sleek and smooth. It takes away the frizzy, flyaway look.
Not only did it make it sleek, but I was able to straighten all my hair in just a few minutes! This is very exciting because I'll be able to use this without adding a lot of time to my routine.
I love that it didn't "burn" my hair to achieve the results. My hair got warm but not scalding and was cooled again very quickly.
The iron itself heats up very quickly and is ready to use in under two minutes. The variable speed allows you to adjust the temperature to your type of hair for the best results. The plates are wide and easily handled my long, mildly thick hair.
The very generous cord length allows movement and reaching around your head to get all sides comfortably, without feeling like you have to hug the wall where it is plugged in. The swivel feature is wonderful as well. It allows you to swap hands without getting tangled in the cord.
The design makes it comfortable to hold and I like that the buttons are on the side of the handle instead of right on top where your fingers lay. It keeps you from accidentally changing the temperature or turning it off, a problem I have had with curling irons over the years. Nothing like trying to use hair appliance and not realizing you've turned it off and lost the heat!
The flat iron has a slide lock to secure the iron when not using and comes with a great pouch to store it in or for traveling. It actually comes in a great, sturdy outer box as well!
It is a great tool with very smooth operation and professional looking results. I am loving everything about this flat iron and the new look it has given my hair.
If you want a great quality hair straightener, the Xtava Infrared Flat Iron is a pretty awesome one! It is available from their website or on Amazon.
