Solia Tourmaline Ceramic Ion Flat Iron (1-1/4")
Brand:
Model No: ST114
Folica SKU: A8556
100% Guaranteed Authentic
Cooler Setting, No Product
I was concerned about using a hot iron on my hair, so I looked for a product to protect it. There are, in theory, products specifically for hot irons that protect hair to 450F (if you believe the claims of the products): Paul Mitchell and Matrix are the only 2 brands I found who make such a product. I ended up buying the Matrix product called "sleek.look". The problem is, though, my hair got greasy and gross at the end of the day when using the product. Basically, if I use the sleek.look, my hair needs to be washed the next day. But if I have to iron my hair after each time I wash it, that means washing and ironing it each day, which cant be good for the hair. So instead, I use the iron at a lower setting, between 300F and 350F, with NO PRODUCT. The iron does a GREAT job, and my hair stays nice and straight until I wash it again 2 or 3 days later. I occasionally have to touch up my cowlick, but thats all.
