When my Remington T Studio flat iron pooped out on me I wasn't sure where to start looking for a new flat iron. I mean it seems like everyone had tried and loved a CHI but they are about $100+ !! and y'all know me I am frugal. So when I saw this HSI Professional being sold on Amazon for only about $60 and was salon quality / professional grade like the CHI is supposed to be, I was interested. I have been lucky enough to have received this flat iron from HSI Professional to try out and review. As you all know, all experiences and opinions are 100% that of my own and if you doubt it watch the video !!
Its difficult to argue with those results ;-) .
As for the tool it self it has a sleek design with diamond like shapes on the hand for easy griping. It has heated up for me extremely fast and I have not experienced and problems with it thus far. No funky burning hair smell or crispy feeling; actually quite the opposite!! I feel like this iron leaves my hair looking even shinier and feeling softer than before I passed the iron over it !
Some spec's on this tool :
-100% True Solid ceramic tourmaline plates
-Advanced infrared heat technology
-Ceramic ionic technology eliminates frizz and promotes shine
-Curved round edges with floating plates designed to straighten, flip, or curl
-Adjustable temperature from 240F to 410F
-Ergonomic design for an easy and comfortable grip
-360 swivel cord
The flat iron also comes with a Free heat glove, Free 5ml Argan oil leave in conditioner Bottle & a Free heat pouch for storage.
In the picture above you can see how the edges of the plates are curved. This helps with flipping you ends under and also using the flat iron to curl your hair - Let me know in the comments below if you are interested in a curl your hair with a flat iron tutorial ?
Above you get a great view of the diamond pattern as well as the indicator light.
This is the bottom of the iron.
Overall, I am in love with this iron and so glad I own it !!! I recommend this to anyone with thick, coarse or curly/ wavy hair. I haven't tried this on anyone with thinner hair but if it works on my thick mop then I am most certain it'll fair just fine on thinner :-)
I REALLY want to try out their 4 Piece Curling Iron Set next !!!
