By Reddy ,
Its been a while since I reviewed anything here and I hope you all are in good spirit 🙂
I have been planning on a flat iron and a curler for a while. My bro was planning forÂ India vacation butÂ it was taking forever soÂ he just paid this styling ironÂ although Couldn’t avoid the shipping expenses 🙁
Sedu Revolution Professional Nano Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron 1 Inch Plate
Now,this beauty took some time to be picked up. I was vacillating between Sedu Pro Ionic Ceramic Flat Iron and this one.What’s the difference between the twoÂ ?
Sedu Pro Flat Iron straightens, smoothes and tames hair for sleek style to reveal your hair’s natural shine.(FromÂ website )Â and it was available in 11/2 and 1 inch
While the revolution version has curved edges enabling a user to go for a straight ,wavy or curly look. Thus,it has only a 1 inch plate. In other words it can be used as a curler plus straightener.
ULTRA-SMOOTH, POLISHED PLATES
Our unique polishing process to create a microscopically smooth surface that immediately seals the follicle, gliding through the hair to provide superior shine and straightening ability.
HIGHEST QUALITY TOURMALINE INFUSED CERAMIC PLATES
Tourmaline and ceramic optimize the ionic potential of the plates, reducing static and eliminating frizz.
FREESTYLE GUIDING SYSTEM
Anti-slip edges capture all the hairs within the plates, preventing them from slipping outside.
FLOATING PLATES & CURVED EDGE DESIGN
Allow for versatility of styling for any look you want â€“ straight and sleek to waves and curls.
SUPERIOR HEAT UP AND RECOVERY TIME
Achieves desired temperature in less than 25 seconds and provides quicker heat recovery time for more consistent styling results.
My experience with the flat Iron
This Iron is available in pink and black and sadly pink was not available.It broke my heart but i still went with the black coloured one.
The iron heats up in a ziffy :).IÂ switch it on just for 10 secs ( too much heat is not good for hair ) and I find it veryÂ convenient. It has a long long cord which makes the usage easy because don’t have a socket near myÂ dressing unit. When I useÂ a short cord blow dryer I always rush to my mum’ room and nowÂ withÂ this I am kind of relieved .Also,Â the swivel cord makes it so effortless to iron hair 🙂
The temperature can be adjusted easily with a threaded circular button which can getÂ heatedÂ upto 450F ( i would never try this setting anyway ) . And their isÂ on and off systemÂ Â just below the inner plate,above the heat setting. Its a simple tick-tock square button which moves up and down.
Why did I choose Cermaic Hair Straightener
The ceramic hair straightenersÂ glide easily through the hair with no edges that can catch the hair. They also heat up immediately within seconds.
They are thermostatically controlled and maintain a constant even heat throughout their use. The fast heating ceramic element gives you full styling control and creates a negative ion charge that seals in moisture, natural oils and hair color for total hair protection. The simple design also makes them very easy to handle, in straightening terms they are pencil thin making them very light and controllable. A red indicator light flashes as power is pulsed to retain an optimum operating temperature.
Ceramic hair straighteners are microscopically smooth and do a much better job of flattening the hair. They also have a more even heat distribution across the plates surface which means that the whole plate is an even temperature. Heat up and cool down quickly which means that the temperature can be controlled better.
Why Tourmaline ?
Tourmaline, a mineral prized as a beautiful, semi-precious gemstone, has become the focus of studies at universities and research centers worldwide. The reason for the interest is that Tourmaline is a natural source of negative ions and the only mineral to show permanent electricity.When millions of tiny particles of Tourmaline are added to the plate surface of a flat iron the benefits to the hair are astounding. Tourmaline generates negative ions that enhance the texture of the hair and also produces far-infrared heat that effectively dries the hair from the inside out. This makes the excessive heat generated by the iron far less damaging to the hair. OK, a positive result is that my hair is exposed to less damage with Tourmaline.
Final verdict: Am happy 🙂 Price is steep at 160$ . But its worth the money if you want to protect your hair.
Where did I purchase stylingÂ Iron from
I got it from Rickysnyc.com and myÂ shopping experience was good. I tried Amazon but its a real task to fish for stuff there because they don’t ship every other product internationally. I planned on a curler and iron from same site ad there is no point wasting shipping expenses on two sites. Amazon doesn’t ship tools below 30$ or 40$ andÂ I gathered that from my experience therefore got it from rickysyns.com .Shipping was some 30$ 🙁
One must iron hair or style themÂ without a heat protector. The issue with shopping online for sprays is that they have shipping restrictions on sprays and aerosols. Redken heat glide was the one I desired but its tough to find a site that ships internationally. So I decided on CHI silk infusion. Its an awesome thing. I would say this does a pretty good job though it has a funny smell.
Price ofÂ Chi Silk Infusion – 1133 INR
I bought it at strawberrynet.com andÂ as a free gift they sent me Stila Eye Shadow Duo Pan – Terracotta . Although I am not an eyeshadow girl I really liked the color of this and IÂ tried to emulate anamika’s pic tutorials 🙂 . These are easier to use than lakme’s .
Another purchase from strawberry was Paul mitchell’s gloss drops .Its anÂ anti-frizz
I didn’t use it to a large extent .One has to use like any other anti fizz lotion .Just one or two drop here and thereÂ and it controls that dry frizzy hair look and this too has funny smellÂ 🙁 .Citre Shine’s anti-frizz spray laminator is another good one which I heardÂ but sadly they don’t ship sprays .
This is it for now IÂ will post about the curler from conair in another post.I will request you to please do not use cheap tools onto hair.They come with aluminium plates or some other unsafe material which canÂ damage hair easily .Also a heat protectant is always a must although it doesn’t eliminate the damage but atleast it minimizes it .
