How I use and staying power:
You first need a heat protector to protect your hair from getting damaged before you use any heat treatments on your hair. Section your hair and after 1 minute of switching on the straightener, pinch your sectioned hair and gently move towards the ends. Repeat as needed and cover the entire hair this way in sections. Finally use a hair serum and you are done.
I feel the straightener needs to be used 2-3 times on one section of hair for a well straightened look. If you have curly hair, it might take 3-4 swipes. I have observed that the straightener does make your hair straight but not pin straight, it looks more natural. If you like a natural straight look, this straightener is perfect for you. Also, I have observed that your hair might turn a bit wavy or turned from the ends by the end of the day, especially if you have curly hair. The straightener is great for styling the bangs and fringes and works perfect due to its smaller sized plates.
If you are worried about frizzy hair after washing your straightened hair, you would be happy to hear that I did not see any damage on my hair and I don’t even use shampoo. I was expecting damage since I don’t have any silicon layer to protect my hair, but luckily they remained soft as they always are. More on tips for buying a straightener >>
