Poker straight hair is back on-trend, so it could be time to treat yourself to a pair of straighteners. Although, I would never advocate using them every day, they are great for the occasional use. Be sure to always use a heat protective spray before you start styling.
They are so many irons out there but, in my books, the T3 SinglePass Straightening & Styling Iron (£125, Selfridges) stands out from the crowd. It has tourmaline-infused ceramic plates which help lock moisture into the hair, eliminate frizz and static electricity. The bevelled plated edges don’t snag the hair.
The T3 SinglePass Straightening & Styling Iron is incredibly light. It heats up quickly and retains a constant temperature and so heat is dispersed evenly into the hair. The power button and adjustable thermostat are on the inside of the irons, so you have to be careful when using them. For areas where hair is finer such as around the face and fringe you should use a lower heat setting so you don’t fry your hair. Another great plus is that it comes with a heat resistant mat.
One pass should be sufficient to straighten your hair. Putting it through several times is really not good for your tresses. Read the instructions carefully before you start using them. If you don’t use them correctly, your beloved straightners could turn into your hair’s worst enemy by ravaging it.
While some other expensive leading brands on the market, have left my hair looking flat and lifeless, the T3 SinglePass Straightening & Styling Iron didn’t strip it of all its body. In fact, it looked really natural and soft after using it. After several uses it hasn’t frazzled my locks.
I like the fact that you can achieve curly and wavy looks as well. It is also ideal for flipping the hair, which is also a great look as it is softer than dead straight hair. It also comes with a two-year guarantee, so be sure to complete your warranty registration.
For tress-perfecting, T3 SinglePass Straightening & Styling Iron is hard to beat.
