Vidal Sassoon Infra-Radiance Hair Straightener

Hair straighteners, we just can’t live without them, can we? Making our hair look beautifully smooth, sleek, and straight. However finding the right heat styling tool that doesn’t damage and further dry out your lovely locks can be a mission. Today, on the blog. I’ll be presenting you with the Vidal Sassoon Infra-Radiance Hair Straightener.

The straightener features extra wide, tourmaline ceramic heated plates which means you can style large sections of your hair at once. Creases are ironed out and frizz is obliterated. The temperature goes up to 200°C but you can control it for the level you want, it’s ideal if you have finer hair and don’t want to cause too much damage.

Vidal Sassoon Infra-Radiance Straightener Features:

• Infra Radiance Technology – for faster, kinder, radiant results
• Extra Wide 30mm plates – giving smooth results more quickly
• Tourmaline Ceramic – conditioning irons for reduced frizz
• Variable Temperature (up to 200°C) – tailoring to your personal needs
• Auto Shut Off After 60 minutes – giving total peace of mind
• 2.5m Swivel Cable – freedom when straightening

My Experience:

When I first used this hair straightener, on the day my hair was quite messy and wavy. I had washed it the day before and didn’t bother to style it. So, I quickly spritz on some heat protectant spray, switched it on, and waited for it to heat up. While heating up the indicator light will illuminate and flash until reaching the temperature setting you have chosen. It took under a minute to heat up to 200°C.

When I ran this through my hair the very first time I honestly was SO impressed. At the first stroke, it was instantly more straight, smooth and it looked more shinier than usual. I couldn’t tell the different between my GHD and this one. I did my entire head of hair in about 10 minutes. I found this hair straightener very easy to use. It feels really light in my hand, and everything is just so straight-forward (excuse the pun) Most importantly, I didn’t experience any drying on my hair. The distribution of heat is even, and the handle doesn’t get hot either.

I really love the extra wide 30mm plates. You can grab larger sections of your hair at a time and it gets the job done way quicker. Another feature I am also so pleased about is the auto shut off. I’m sure we’ve all left our heat styling tools on at least once, right? The only downside to this product is that I found it a bit difficult to clamp down onto the handles because the on/off button is oddly placed, so you can sometimes accidentally switch it off during use.

My overall verdict is that I adore the Vidal Sassoon Infra-Radiance Hair Straightener. If you’re in the market for a new straightener that won’t break the bank, I’d definitely recommend this one!
