Plate Material – The material of the plate determines how soothing and how effective the device straightens your hair. The most common material nowadays is ceramic which is designed to heat up quickly, and glide through the hair without pulling and tugging at it, which reduces damage to hair, while tourmaline is designed to give you smooth and shiny hair by sealing in moisture.
Plate Size – Measured in length and width, the plate size of a hair straightener determines how much hair can be pressed at a single time. The most common width being 1 inch, but some models offer different width options.
Dual Voltage – Some hair straighteners purchased in the UK are not dual voltage, meaning that they cannot be safely used in a different country without a power converter.
Temperature Range – This is the lowest and highest temperature range that the flat iron has built-in. Most hair straighteners have an adjustable temperature with generally 3 to 5 increments between the temperature range.
Heat-Up Time – This is the time is takes for the unit to heat up from its lowest temperature to its highest temperature.
Auto Shut-Off – Certain hair straighteners have an auto shut-off feature where if the unit is left on unused for (usually) 60 minutes, it will automatically turn off as a safety precaution.
Price – If you want to know the price of any of the models, just click on the Buy Now button or Check Price and you’ll be redirected to the product page on Amazon.co.uk. The reason we don’t put prices is because they constantly change and there are so many sellers offering different prices.
