My Take on Philips HP8310 Hair Straightener:

I have been contemplating buying a straightener for the longest time. I have heard a lot about excessive heat being bad for hair, but having curly/wavy hair, I have always dreamt of getting straight hair. Eventually, I bought one straightener from Phillips with model number HP8310.

The violet ceramic plates

I chose this straightener because of three reasons, one because it had negative ions that would provide the extra conditioning, second was that the maximum heat was only up to 210, third was that it was reasonably priced and from the brand Phillips which makes other electronic gadgets as well.

I didn’t get any heat/thermal protectant along with this straightener.

The first time that I had used this straightner, I shampooed and conditioned my hair. This tool cannot be used on wet hair, so you HAVE TO ensure that your hair is thoroughly dry. After my hair had dried completely, I partitioned and removed tangles from my hair.

Phillips Hair Straightener

When you switch on the straightener, there is a green light that switches on and it automatically switches off after a certain time. I watched a lot of youtube videos before I started using it and I ran the straightener patiently through each section. After the process, I had lovely straight hair and I was supremely happy with the straightener. I did not expect poker straight hair and did not get any, but the kind of straightening it did on my hair, was to my satisfaction.

In this picture, you can see, one section of hair which is still wavy and the other section of hair which is straightened out.

Phillips Hair Straightener

I would also like to mention here that the negative ions do the conditioning part remarkably well. It removes frizz and smoothes all fly-aways. However, without conditioner, it does not perform that well.

The most important part and it’s a big “yey” for me, I can add curls (loose and bouncy ones) to my hair. I don’t need any separate curling tong or styler. Generally, what I do is, I straighten my hair and in the end, try to add loose bouncy curls and its perfect.

Phillips Hair Straightener

The only hitch for me is that I cannot straighten the hair at the back as effectively and it remains somewhat wavy, but I don’t really mind that. Also, I haven’t still bought a heat protectant yet, so I just use this once a week, but someone who would do straightening daily, heat protectant is a must.

Fully straightened out hair

Phillips Hair Straightener

Overall, I just love this straightener. I should really “pat my back” for buying an awesome product, just love it to bits.

Summing up the pros and cons of Phillips Hair straighener:

Pros of Philips HP8310 Hair Straightener:

  • A multipurpose straightener with which you can straighten as well as add curls to your hair (though not tight curls).
  • Sleek and attractive design.
  • Comes from the trusted brand “Phillips.”
  • Price is quite reasonable.
  • Ceramic plates that distribute heat evenly.
  • Straightens hair effectively.
  • Negative ions smooths out frizzy hair and fly-aways.
  • Heat is only up to 210 degrees, which is sufficient to straighten out wavy to curly hair.
  • 2-year warranty.

Cons of Philips HP8310 Hair Straightener:

  • Cannot be used on wet hair (I don’t think that is a con, I would never try to straighten wet hair).
  • Would not be so effective to straighten out tight curls or coarse hair.

No other cons, I just love this straightener!!!!.

Do I Recommend Philips HP8310 Hair Straightener?

Yes to those girls with wavy hair.

Hi Jomol,

Looks like a very promising product :waytogo: ….. Im currently using a cheaper product from the brand Remington..it does not give the same results :waaa: .. But your hair looks so healthy and shiny :mirror: … Would love to try this …..Philips is beyond my budget though :cry: :cry: ….. It would cost around atleat $50 here

Hi Supriya….I had checked out Remington straighteners too, but they are pretty costly here :)) :nababana: :nababana:

Supriya….believe me, my hair is very frizzy, but after I use this straightener, it does seem healthy. Try if you can get this model with ions, I think it might come a litter cheaper :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy:

Jomol…..My hair is very wavy too……Did you straighten it yourself or did someone help you…I find it very difficult to do it myself…(some sections wont get straightened :waaa: )…

It is surprising because here in Australia Philips is more expensive than Remington…at least the products I ave checked out so far ….

But if I’m going to get this result (Like your hair :waytogo: ) Im definitely going to try this :makeup:

jomol January 21, 2012 at 10:32 am

Supriya….I had to do it alone…….I just clipped all hair together and then sections by sections I straightened it out….even then, the hair at the back couldn’t be straightened :( you are right……some hair won’t get straightened at the back at all and you know with straightened hair, the side braided hair looks amazing…..you should try it tooo :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:

great that your hair stays that way till next wash…..looks beautiful.. :woot: and that too without blow-drying and heat protectant..wow. my 2 irons doesn’t give good results and it definitely does not stay even for one day…i have stopped trying… :waiting: ….my wavy hair.grrrr………….

Ife……I think this ion thingy is working for me, I have pretty frizzy hair and I can’t use any hair oil or serum, so I use loreal shampoo and conditioner …..just these two and the straightener now :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

you have beautiful hair, Jomol. So nice to see something of you hehe Also your review rocks, I have always wanted to know about this straightener, i do have a query. i have frizzies just at my forehead region. and curls too. but rest of my hair is straight and good. i have remington right now. when i use it my frizz behaves for two hours max. how is it with the philips, will it get rid of frizzy hair for atleast more time?

Reply

jomol January 21, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Praseena…I am sure this thing reduces frizz because usually I have lot of flyaways, but this tends to control that, and I can just clip my hair at the top and leave the rest open and my hair behaves well…..thankoo for liking my review Praseena :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

Wow…Jomol, your hair looks so healthy and shiny. And the straightener seems to work very well.
I have frizzy wavy hair. Had used lot of heat styling stuff last year – starighteners, dryers and they damaged my hair.
Am off them now.

However looking at your hair am tempted to try this one

jomol January 21, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Dee….I have to get heat protectant now urgently because I am tempted to try it every other day, I know heat will damage hair eventually, so treading over it slowly :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails

Dee January 22, 2012 at 4:35 pm

Yes Jomol. Heat protectant is a must.
And you are true, heat will eventually damage the hair, so grab some good heat protectant soon.
Tresemme range worked fine for me.

Hi Jomol,

Just realised you were a keralite…..is that the secret of your thick and healthy hair? Well, almost all the keralites who I have met have lovely hair., its very think regardless of whether its straight or wavy… :pigtail: :pigtail: :pigtail: :pigtail: :pigtail: :pigtail: Even here in Australia …So I was thinking may be the genetics or the seafood rich in protein or is it the coconut oil?

Can you give us some advice/ or an article about the secrets :announce:

Reply

jomol January 22, 2012 at 1:28 pm

he he….Supriya….yesh I am a keralite…..usually all keralites have thick and long hair, I think that’s because of the climate, the herbal oils we use, curry pata, and FISHHHHHH….but I do not have very thick hair, used to have, but the water where we stay is quite heavy with salts and is not at all good for the hair, and I did have damaged hair but now I am taking supplements, and its back on track. Also, I cannot keep any nourishing hair oil or serum overnight in my hair as it gives me headache, so the only thing I can do is take good protein and iron rich food O:) O:) O:) waishe thanks Supriya….you made my day yesterday, and you are making my day today too…love you :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

I was not too fond of fish, but now im trying to include more seafood atleast for the sake of my hair…Also Im trying to regularly oil my hair with parachute coconut oil…( These I learnt from my Keralite neighbours)…

The water here has too much chlorine I’m having a hair loss problem :methinks:

Also Im planning to visit Kerala this year, for the very first time :yes: Hope I can have “karimeen” onboard the houseboat ;-)

Fab if your hair is very frizzy…..do condition your hair first and then wait for the second day after you have washed your hair. By the second day, your hair will kind of settle down and on that day, you use this straighten….but I am so happy I could help you :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

Hi, i ws thinkin of buying a straigtner and ws lookin for reviews that’s how i got here.. got inspired by the review that i went ahead and ordered it from infibeam.. i just got the prdct nd i hav a cpl of questions..
the plates dont seem to be approximating well all the way..so i have to take up thicker sections of hair..u think it’s bcoz i’m not applying enuf pressure?
and the outside surface gets quiet hot as well. so i’m having trouble using it to create curls. is that the way it is or is there something wrong with mine.. Please plz reply coz i have only few days left to get it replaced. Also do u use heat protective gloves when using this.. know where i can find one online???? thanx thanx

I bought this straightener after reading your review.Your review is superb.Great job!
I have very long and very thick hair.Its straight but very frizzy that`s why I needed a flat iron.I bought this one.But I am not satisfied with this product.After straightening I get split hair in the middle.It doesn`t give me sleek hair,as I always wanted.

Nice review. I just got the product but I find it too hot. I mean 210 degrees is quite lot for my hair, it seems. Is it safe to use this high temperature for hair?
Also can you suggest a good heat protectant.
I wish this had heat settings so that I could use it better.
