Take an Extra Step Out of Your Styling Process

I have been pretty unsatisfied with the last two flat irons that I’ve owned, so I was more than willing to give this one a try even though it has larger plates than I prefer (my other two flat irons are 1″ plates) and it’s a brand that I have never used before. Although I have fine hair that should be easy to style, I never get the salon results at home, which makes flat ironing my hair each day the only acceptable thing that I can do. However, constant blow drying followed by heated styling is quite bad for the hair. I’ve also been trying to grow my hair out, and haven’t gone in for a trim in several months. I can definitely see that my ends need a trim, and flat ironing with my knock-off Chi hasn’t been very effective lately. Most days, I’m opting to pull my hair back so I can hide the frizzy ends from sight.I had pretty low expectations for this flat iron; how could it be possible that a flat iron could both straighten and dry hair simultaneously? There are steam vents on one of the ceramic plates (4 smallish holes on each side of the plate), and the vents direct the moisture from your hair. The straightener can be used on either wet or dry hair, depending on your individual needs. If you are using on wet/damp hair, the light will be green (you should have the straightener’s number dial somewhere between 20-30), and if you are using it on dry hair, the light will be amber.After washing my hair, I squeezed out the excess moisture and then after a few minutes switched on the flat iron. This flat iron heats up fast–it only took about 30 seconds. Since I wasn’t sure what to expect and didn’t want to cause any damage to my hair, I started out with a small chunk of hair from my underneath layers. I started at the roots, carefully keeping the vents away from my scalp so I wouldn’t burn myself. I was thrilled when after a few times of running the flat iron over the strands of hair that it was completely dry. From there, I moved on to the next strands and finally completed all of the layers of my hair.I definitely prefer this method of drying/styling over my normal routine of blow drying and then straightening. I’m not sure if I save any time by doing this instead of blow drying, but I love the overall look of my hair after using this flat iron; when I do my normal routine, my ends never stay straight and always flip out and appear frizzy. After using just the flat iron on damp hair, my ends stayed completely straight. The very top layer of my hair wasn’t as frizz free as I like, so I did have to use someBed Head After Party Smoothing Cream ( For Silky, Shiny, Healthy Looking Hair ) – Tigi – Bed Head – Hair Care – 100ml/3.4ozto tame the short hairs that wanted to stick straight up.If your normal hair styling routine involves blow drying and straightening, give this flat iron a chance. You’ll reduce the amount of heat your hair is exposed to, and condition your hair while styling. The plates contain a Soy Hydra complex, which will last for the lifetime of this flat iron.OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION:1. This flat iron heats up to 425 degrees2. The soy-infused plates will not leave your hair feeling oily3. This flat iron takes only 30 seconds to heat all the way up4. It will automatically turn off after 60 minutes (which is perfect if you often forget to turn off your appliances)5. You can use on either wet or dry hair

So Cool!

Wow, this is definitely a great product.I have long hair that is wavy, frizzy, course and thick. I also live in South Carolina which adds to the frizziness factor. I used this last night on dry hair and it did an ok job. For dry hair I prefer my 4 inch ceramic flat iron as it fits more hair. However, today after washing my hair I used the flat iron while my hair was damp and this is where it really outshines other flat irons.You can use this on dry hair, wet hair or damp hair, It worked best for me on damp hair. On really wet hair you have to use it 3 or 4 times on a section of hair, if it is damp it is once or twice. I pinned my top hair up and did the bottom first and was amazed at how straight and shiny it looked. Many times when I straighten my hair it still is a bit frizzy and thick in some areas. With this damp to dry iron you get salon results in a very short amount of time.I did my whole head in less than 10 minutes which is much less time that it usually takes me dry and it looked so much better.The product has a soy hydra complex in the wand which is supposed to make your hair smoother, and it does work. I am not sure how it does or if the soy lasts for a long time, but for my first two tries it did an amazing job.Iron heats up almost immediately and when you are drying wet or damp hair it released steam from your hair which is less damaging.Easy to use and a great price. I have already told my sister that it would make an excellent gift for my 14 yr old niece who has the same hair as mine.Highly recommended.

Use at your own risk on wet hair!

I’ve never yet tried this on my wet hair, and it’s a good thing: my stylist was vehemently against using this, or any other, wet-to-dry flat iron on wet hair, due to the severe damage she said these cause. She’d stated that manufacturers have tried selling these products over the past 5 or so years, and they’ve never taken off, for good reason: using these to pull on and stress wet hair (which she said is in its weakest possible state) causes serious damage to the hair shaft, as the hair, being in its most fragile state, can’t take the heat and pulling without getting very damaged after repeated uses of wet-to-dry styling implements. She’s a great stylist, and has done wonders with my hair over the years, so, paired with my just-average experiences with this flat iron on my hair dry, that was enough for me.Using it dry, it got my hair smooth and relatively straight, but it did nothing to fight the humidity that undid my efforts, and was really no more exceptional than anything else I’ve tried before. So, overall, for me, this Remington flat iron gets a “meh” for its effectiveness on my dry hair, and a resounding, “heck no!” on the simple consideration of using it on my wet hair. My stylist has never yet steered me wrong, and, since she’s a professional that clearly knows what she’s doing, I’m not about to ignore her strong warnings.Use on wet hair at your own risk!

Not like a regular Croc

Adorable and Convenient

I purchased this for vacation, but still use it daily. I wanted something little I could throw in my carry-on, and this definitely fit the bill. The price is pretty unbeatable here on Amazon. It heats up quickly and works very well considering it’s size. I have really thick, medium-length hair, and am able to straighten it all in about 10 minutes. The one thing I’m not a fan of is the on/off slide switch on the inside of the iron. I’m always afraid I’ll burn fingers sticking them in there. I usually just unplug and wait a minute or two before flipping the switch. It’d also be nice if it got a tad bit hotter. I still love it and it’s replaced my old Conair straightener.

Very good flat iron

I purchased this product so I could give a smooth look to my very naturally curly hair. The iron performs just as I would expect it to. Sometimes I have to iron a section twice, but that’s okay. I don’t use it at a very high setting as I’m afraid it will damage the hair.

Effective hair straightener…

Package arrived quickly and was well packaged. For $20, this is a fine hair straightener with just the basics. I like that it gets hot quickly so you are not sitting around waiting for it.For the price, it seems to do the job well. I am just worried that these lower end straighteners might burn your hair, so just be careful.

Phyllis Van Alstyne, TX

My Hair Needed Protection

I am an african american teenager and i love straight hair. I cant begin to tell anyone how many flat irons i have had before this on but it is the best. I have had flat irons from conair, revlon, andis and they all seem to chip and burn up when you use the hottest setting. Finally I got discouraged and bought this one thinking that I would be disappointed yet again but that didnt happen. Because my hair needs protection and takes a little added heat this flat iron did wonders. I swear you could use this flat iron on the nappiest hair and still your hair would stay straight and that is not lie. This hair product is for everyone especially african american women who are looking for a flat iron that wont burn their hair and create excellent results. I highly recommend this flat iron

Do not buy…Cheap knitted glove

This is a useless product. It is too big for my hand and fingers are way too long for anybody. It is not heat resistant either. I recommend to get well fitting, comfortable pair of glove from a store. Now you have an extra if one is old or get lost. Added on 10/23/2012 Please do not buy this, you will be sorry that your money is wasted. You probably end up keeping in you junk pile; what a hassle is it to return an item! I paid the shipping cost to show them that there are some people would not buy into this kind of fraud. I paid about $10.00 then I thought it was a rip off. Now asking price is almost doubled! Believe me. This glove probably cost less than 1 dollar to generate it.

Althea Cooperstown, PA

This glove works great

Not sure what all the other reviewers are talking about. I like this glove a lot. If it were completely heat proof it would be very thick and hard to move your hand in. Plus, I hold my hair to the iron with this glove and when it finally gets hot on my hand, I know my hair is done.Then I do another trick which works great, don’t let the curled hair fall after you pull it off the iron, hold it in your heat proof glove until it’s cooled down a bit. You can also pin each curl to your head so they can cool completely without gravity pulling them down. You may not realize this but as it hangs and cools, it releases a lot of curl. My hair falls out so quickly and I really hate using any hair spray so this works awesome for me.

Denise Kurtz, IN

To expensive for pour quality!!!

I think it was expensive for the pour quality .. I can still feel the heat from the iron… In the picture it looks really nice n once u get it looks all ugly n bad well it wasn’t what I was expecting :/

Works great!

This works nicely. Heats up quickly. Very easy to use. It is lightweight and easy to handle. Love that it comes with a locking option. Took me a second to figure out how to do it though since it was so different than my previous flat iron. I can’t call it salon quality, but it is much nicer than the one I owned prior. Works well on my fine, wavy hair. I don’t know if it would be a match for someone with thicker or curly hair though.

Edith Battlement Mesa, CO

I got this to use as my “travel” flat iron, as well as backup flat iron. I currently use theRemington S8510DS Flat Iron, Frizz Therapy, 1 Inchto smooth my hair and it works wonders. I can quickly and easily smooth my hair in a few swipes. The best thing is it does not give my hair that fried/dried look, and my hair stays smooth all day. The frizzies truly are gone. Unfortunately, I did not get these same results with this Andis flat iron.

Extremely Impressed

I wasn’t very optimistic about this hair straightener. My hair is very thick and wavy, so no hair straightener among the several I have tried ever managed to straighten it to a noticeable extent. Even when I go to a salon, it takes a hair-dresser well over an hour to straighten my hair. I simply don’t have the time to do this for myself at home. Besides, I dislike using any hair care product on my hair because I think it can be detrimental to the hair’s health.When I used Remington’s Ceramic Hair Straightener, however, I was extremely impressed. I only used it for 15 minutes or so and applied no hair product but it straightened out my hair perfectly. And the hair remained completely straight for the next 2 days, until I washed it.This straightener can be used both on wet hair and on dry hair. I have tried both options and they are both great. Also, after I use it, I notice that my hair remains looking clean for a longer period of time. I don’t feel like it damages my hair at all.This is a really great straightener for people who don’t have a lot of time to spend on taking care of their hair. It’s easy to use, very effective, and a great value for the money. I’ve tried much more expensive straighteners in the past and they were not even half as effective as this one.

Alejandra Seven Valleys, PA

Never Use While Sleeping!!

Can I just say, I hate the packaging! That tough sturdy plastic that cuts my fingers makes the first use of this wonderful straightener frustrating.
• The ceramic plates heated up in 30 seconds and I was ready to roll!
• I like the lock on it that I can use as soon as I’m done. It’s just safer.
• The straightener gets hot and my hair straightens first time through.
• Features ergonomic design- I like the way it handles and it’s not heavy.
• Seriously, at under $20 it is a fantastic price and works great.I got a kick out of some of the warnings:Never use while sleeping- uh, okay.Do not use while bathing or showering- duhDo not place or drop into water or other liquid- Got it!? No liquids.Keep away from children- excellent idea…

Takes forever

I tried this curler and it did not work very well. I was curling very small sections of hair at a time and I still had to hold the hair on the curler for 40 seconds. Even after the 40 seconds the curls did not turn out very well and didn’t hold well. The heat setting was pretty high too. The type of curl this wand makes is alright, but I prefer one that makes big loose curls.

Doris Maumee, OH

Nice features but not for me

This was my first trial with a curling wand instead of a curling iron, so I’ll address that first. I had a hard time getting any type of curl to stay in my hair using this product. I have naturally curly hair, but if I don’t apply some heat to it the curls will friz. So I usually touch up my hair with a curling iron. For some reason I simply could not get my hair to curl in a natural looking manner using this product. I tried numerous different types of positions trying to follow my natural curl, but it simply didn’t work. I even noted some online videos on how to use a curling wand to see if I was doing something wrong, but nothing made this product work the way I wanted it to. Perhaps that was my lack of expertise in using a wand, but I don’t really want to spend a lot of time developing new expertise. I give my hair ten minutes in the morning and don’t have time for more so I’m going to stick with the traditional style of curling iron. Perhaps if you are already comfortable using a curling wand you might get better results.Apart from the fact that I just couldn’t get this product to work for my hair, it did have some nice features. I liked that you could set and lock the temperature by the actual degree of heat rather than just turning it up or down. Also, it heats up fast which is a bonus for a hurried morning schedule. Further, the wand has an auto shut off in case you forget and leave it on when you are done and mine did come with a heat glove.One other thing to note when considering this wand: Many Remington products are dual voltage so for those who travel internationally I’d just like to mention that this wand is 110 volts only rather than being a dual voltage 110-240 model.

Lela Oakland, TN

Difficult to figure out; unsatisfactory results

I was eager to try the waving wand but it exceeded my hairstyling capability. The wand itself seemed sturdy with nice temperature features but without some kind of clamp, I was not able to get satisfactory results. I was also uncomfortable working with the heat glove.

Panasonic Flat Iron with nanoe Technology and Ceramic-Coated Plates for Smooth, Shiny Hair and Professional Results, EH-HS95-K

The Panasonic EH-HS95-K Flat Iron with nanoe Technology makes it quick and easy to curl or straighten hair like a pro. As you style, nanoe draws moisture from the air to infuse tiny, moisture-rich particles into each shaft of hair – this moisture shields and protects against heat and, later on, possible damage caused by everyday brushing, leaving hair with increased shine and reduced frizz. Unlike plates used in other flat irons, ceramic-coated plates glide smoothly and gently over the hair, delivering evenly distributed heat for enhanced curling and straightening. At the same time, a heat circulating system supplements the plates to maintain a stable temperature that is ideal for styling. The Panasonic EH-HS95-K Flat Iron comes with five separate heat settings — 300°F, 340°F, 355°F, 375°F and 395°F — for different hair styles and lengths. For protection and safety, the flat iron shuts down automatically after 60 minutes. It includes a 9-foot cord that swivels for easy use at any angle. Plus, an open-close lock is great for storage and travel.

Key features

  • The Panasonic Flat Iron curls, straightens and styles as nanoe infuses moisture into the hair for shiny, beautiful, professional results
  • Nanoe enhances hair’s shine and smoothness and reduces damage caused from brushing
  • Five separate heat settings provide the ideal temperatures for different hair types, styles and lengths and ceramic-coated plated evenly distribute heat while styling
  • Automatically shuts off after 60 minutes for protection and safety
  • Includes a 9-foot swivel cord for easy use at any angle, and an open-close lock for for storage and travel

Less than ideal for my hair needs

I’ve been flat ironing my hair for over 12 years and in that time I’ve tried quite the assortment of hair straighteners from high to low end and from a variety of different brands. Cheaper hair straighteners have never quite compared as their life span never seems as long, my hair seems more prone to drying out with use, and often ergonomically they just aren’t as comfortable to use. Currently I’m using theTS-2 Millennium Professional Flat Iron, though I also have theRemington S7210 Wet 2 Straight Flat Iron with Soy Hydra Complex, 1 Inchthat I keep in my gym locker for straightening on the go. I was excited to try this out because I flat iron frequently (about 6x a week) so I am always looking for something that will get my hair even straighter and with less damage. This straightener appealed to me because I had never heard about nano technology before and was hopeful it might lead to sleeker, silkier, healthier hair.To be frank, I just don’t think this is the straightener for me. Using it has made me realize how much I enjoy my existing straightener, the TS-2 Millennium Professional Flat Iron so much more. The first thing I noticed about the Panasonic is how big it is compared to my existing iron. For some reason the picture makes it look much slimmer and sleeker than it is in real life. It feels very bulky compared to my existing straightener and it made it much less comfortable to use. I have a lot of thick hair that falls just below my shoulders so it can take me a good 30 minutes to an hour to flat iron my whole head and I found that it felt uncomfortable to use it for that long and my hand was a little sore after, a problem I’ve never experienced with my existing iron. The bulky shape also made it a little harder to maneuver and I definitely felt I couldn’t be as nimble with this. Design wise, I also like that on my TS-2 Iron the tip is designed such that it is easier to flat iron all the way to the roots – it is more rounded on the end and there is less of a gap between the end of the heated plate and the plastic iron. I REALLY missed that feature on the Panasonic.Awkward design aside, the aspect I enjoyed least about this iron is the range of temperatures. I do like that you are able to control the temperature and I think the temperature read out looks very slick compared to other flat irons I’ve used. However, the highest temperature, 395 degrees F, apparently isn’t hot enough to flat iron my hair. When I was using this for the first time I couldn’t figure out why this iron couldn’t seem to get my hair as straight as the TS-2 and why I seemed to need to go over each strand more times. Then in comparing the irons I realized that the TS-2 goes all the way up to 450 degrees F. Apparently that extra 55 degrees makes a big difference for my hair. If my hair wasn’t so thick or long I wouldn’t mind having to go over each section of hair more times, but for me it makes my morning routine substantially longer. Also I am trying to grow my hair out and my stylist has told me that my frequent flat ironing has slowed my hair growth and that I should really only be going over each section once, and that is definitely NOT possible with this iron.As far as the benefits from the nanoe, I do feel like my hair is slightly softer when I use this product vs. the TS-2, but it is not a huge difference and it is hard for me to tell if that is really the result of nano or ironing my hair at a lower temperature. This exercise made me realize I’m willing to sacrifice a little bit of softness in my hair in order to get it straighter and spend less time flat ironing. I’ve also found that using a flat iron with good hair products helps a lot to combat the dryness.The other thing I’m curious to observe about this iron is its longevity. In my years of straightening my hair that has been one of the biggest differences between more expensive and less expensive irons. Cheaper ones seem to die more quickly making them actually a more expensive proposition in the long run.Overall, I just haven’t been a fan of this iron. For my needs, the TS-2 has been a MUCH better fit. However, I think someone who typically flat irons their hair on a lower temperature and likes the feel of a larger iron would likely enjoy this more than I did. However, even for someone whose needs are different than my own, I’m struggling to understand why this should command a price so much higher than reputable irons like CHI, which I have also owned in the past. The purchase price is more than I’ve ever spent on a flat iron in my 12 years of flat ironing my hair and while I am willing to spend more on hair styling tools that truly make a difference (like my T3 Hair Dyer) with this iron I’m failing to see a difference that commands a higher purchase price. It’s possible this is the kind of product where you will notice the effects more over time, however because it just doesn’t work for my needs I don’t see myself using it regularly enough to realize these.I don’t recommend this for long, thick hair, but it might be better for another hair type.

Flat Iron by Panasonic

My daughter absolutely loves this flat iron. It heats up quickly, and she says she gets done way quicker than her old Conair flat iron. Keeps your shine in your hair, and so far hasn’t dried her hair out. She straightens her hair at least three times a week, sometimes more. She loves it. Loves the color of the wand too. Thanks for the opportunity to use such a fine product. I highly recommend this product to hair straighteners everywhere!

A very nice iron and I am very glad to have it!

I am not sure about the science behind Panasonic’s “nanoe technology,” which claims to put moisture into your hair, so I won’t address it directly. I do know, though, that with repeated use, normal hair straighteners will leave my hair somewhat frizzy. This straightener, does a good job of making my hair smooth and glossy, without any sort of roughness in the feel.It’s nice and light, and has five temperature settings (from 300 degrees to about 400 degrees). A great feature is that it shuts itself off after an hour – I can’t even count the number of times I have left hair irons on after I have left the bathroom where I do my preparing.It’s a very nice iron and I am very glad to have it. I definitely recommend it!(Review of Panasonic EH-HS95-K Smooth & Shiny Flat Iron with nanoe Technology)
