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