Resumee

The Babyliss hair Straightener is a satisfactory straightener. The price-performance ratio is good and the hair can be straightened easily. Sometimes it comes to electrified hair, depending on how intensively you straighten. The result of smooth hair is definitely something to be proud of. It should be noted here again that it is better suited for thinner hair. Since the surfaces of the straightening iron are not rounded, it is a bit more difficult to get good waves here. Also the plates of this straightener do not lie completely on top of each other and you have to press harder when smoothing.

Pro

  • Hair is very shiny
  • Barely "hair-peeled"

Cons

  • Partially electrified hair
  • Plates partly very unstable and do not fit perfectly on top of each other
  • No automatic switch-off

Satisfactory smoothing iron, unfortunately unstable but hardly "pulling".

The product

The Babyliss straightening iron in anthracite comes in a simple design. At first glance, the device convinces with its good quality. The plates are very stable and hardly slip. There's no real display, just a sticker with the temperature display, including LED lights. Besides the On/Off keyboard there is also the "Intense" keyboard to increase the temperature, and the "Protect" keyboard to lower the temperature.

Included in delivery:

  • Hair straightener
  • Instruction manual
  • Protective cover

Usage

This hair straightener can be heated up relatively quickly (at average standard temperature approx. 20 sec.). As soon as the desired temperature is reached, the LED flashes.

Also with this device you should take a 2-3 cm thick strand of hair and carefully guide it with a straightening iron from the hair root slowly down to the tips. If you have thick hair, you will have to cross over the hair strands more often. But you can see the result: The hair is shiny and smooth and almost no hair remains in the plates.

Due to the ionic function, negative ions are distributed during straightening in order to avoid crimping and electrical charging of the hair.

It is noticeable that a somewhat unpleasant odor developed during the first use, which disappeared however with longer use. You can also hear a humming noise when using this device, but this is due to the ion generator, which gives the hair more smoothness and shine.

To get a good result, you should press the two plates firmly to make the hair really smooth.

The following temperature levels are suitable for different hair types:

140 °C: green LED - fine, decoloured and/or brittle hair

160 °C: green LED - fine, decoloured and/or brittle hair

160 °C: green LED - normal, coloured and/or wavy hair

180 °C: yellow LED - normal, coloured and/or wavy hair

200 °C: orange LED - thick and/or curly hair

220 °C: red LED - thick and/or curly hair

235 °C: red LED - thick and/or curly hair

In addition to straightining, you can also make wonderful curls and waves with this product. For this, you have to screw in the straightening iron at the lower end of the hair.

According to the operating instructions you can also test wet hair with this straightening iron. We have tested this with a small strand and would advise against it. There was a lot of steam coming out of the appliance and for the hair structure this is definitely not healthy if you do it more often. Therefore it is always better to straighten the hair when it is dry.

It takes quite a long time to cool down the device.


Cleaning

As with the other straightening irons, you must not clean this appliance with water under any circumstances. You should only use a damp cloth without detergent to clean the plates. In order to protect the plates, you should close the device with the lock after it has cooled down.
