Recently, I got a chance to review Xtava Pro-Satin Flat Iron, which uses the infrared waves to straighten the hair. I had bunch of flat iron already since I have a really curly, hard to manage and frizzy hair but this was my first time to use a flat iron with infrared waves. I love my hair but it’s a different story after washing it! It’s so curly and frizzy and difficult to manage. When I was still in the Philippines I would straighten my hair chemically once or twice a year but stopped it completely thinking the harsh chemicals that were applied to my hair and my scalp. It would cost more damage! And it’s quiet expensive too.
Here are the features why I loved the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Hair Straightener:
- Infrared Heat Technology – The infrared heats the hair from the inside out, causing less damage to your hair. The heat will be distributed evenly thus straightening your hair a lot faster and reducing the risk of damage. Infrared styling tools also lock moisture into the hair by stimulating negative ions to draw the oils found inside of the hair shaft to the surface. Hair is shinier and a lot more healthier.
- It has a manual setting of temperature and the temperature reading is on LCD Display. At least you won’t have to guess how low or how high the temperature is. You just have to select the ideal temperature for your unique hair type between 265F – 445F. To find out what temperature suits for your hair start from the lowest settings and gradually increasing it until you will hit the right temperature. Express heat up time is within only 2 minutes and the appliance is ready to use. It has a 2” wide plate so it cover’s more hair and you will be done faster.
- The XTAVA Pro-Satin flat iron has an 8 ft. long cord and swivels to 360 Degrees so it’s much easier to use. And having a long cord I don’t need a wire extension.
- This appliance has a dual voltage and operates at 100 to 240V. It will just automatically adjust to the proper voltage. I am happy that I can bring this flat iron if I will go for a vacation anywhere.
Upon using this one, I was amazed with the quick result knowing that I have a coarse, frizzy and hard to manage hair. It worked very well on my hair. It runs smoothly on my hair too! I am glad that it tamed my frizzy hair.
One thing that I don’t like with this flat iron is it’s quite heavy for me but over all I would still recommend this flat iron. It really works wonder especially on the type of the hair I have.
