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.

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.

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.

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.

  1. Hi Jomol,

    Looks like a very promising product :waytogo: ….. Im currently using a cheaper product from the brand 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 😥 😥 ….. It would cost around atleat $50 here

  2. 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:

        1. No idea shivani….but don’t try anything drastic now….if you haven’t used anything before, don’t try now, just use remedies you know…..don’t use topical creams now :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

  3. 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:

    1. 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… should try it tooo :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom: :pompom:

  4. thanks Mothini… :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: I am so h appy today :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

          1. Shabaash Nupuriz……tumne usse aur bhi confoos kar diya….I am proud of you :toothygrin: :toothygrin: 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

            1.

  14. Hi, My hair is straight and i would like to have some wavy curls, can anyone recommend a curler or straightener/curler two in one.

    1. Pranjali….curling tongs are available which can add loose as well as tight curls to your hair…..Phillips, Panasonic, all have curling irons as well…you can check those out as well :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

  15. Heer….koosh bhi nahin ….but now, I am taking vitamin E and A capsules :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: lekin mooze lagta hai its because of the loreal conditioner and shampoo and straightener effect :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: thankoo heer….I am so happy today :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  16. Thank you Prachi :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

      1. yes it does 🙂 🙂 ..this straightener was the very first thing i bought from my first salary :pompom:
        i love the active ion technology..duno anything about it apart from the fact that it works 😀
        but now thanks to my medical condition, my hair are already so thin that i cannot afford straightening now 🙁 🙁
        your hair look so healthy :teddy: :teddy:

  17. awesome review Jomol.. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: i used to have second thoughts about this straightener.. now i will aaraam se buy this!! 😀 😀

    u have nice black hair..!!!!!!! :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

  18. yayyy jomol!!! i have this one!! :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: my little sister had saved her pocket money to gift me this :teddy: :teddy: i love it too…but straightening process can take some time, so m too lazy to do it regularly :toothygrin:

  19. Tinkerbell…once in a week try…..mine remains straight until the next wash….and your sister….what a cute gesture:teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy: :teddy:

    1. wow….Hana……..Braun one is pretty costly na…..I checked it out :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

  20. great that your hair stays that way till next wash…..looks beautiful.. :woot: and that too without blow-drying and heat 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………….

    1. 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:

  21. wow my sis in law wanted something like this as she has curly hair,m sure ‘ll be super excited to hear about this product…nice review jomol,everything is explained very clearly:)
    did u get any booklet of how to style ur hair kind,with this?

    1. Srishi….thankooooooooo :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: I didn’t get any booklet on styling, got jsut the 2-year warranty card. I watched youtube videos a lot and they were quite helpful in understanding how to work with the straightener :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: and we have a post here on IMBB that explains how to straighten hair :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  22. 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?

    1. 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:

    1. I know…I wanted to get Braun but couldn’t afford it, its 4000 to 5000….it would have been too much for something I was uncertain about….this one is pretty good though :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

  23. 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

  24. 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

    1. 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.

  25. m vry skeptic regarding using hairr straightners… :chewnails: :chewnails: :chewnails: :chewnails: :chewnails: :chewnails: :chewnails: wese hi i dnt hav good hair… :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥

    one class mate f mine uses them n her hair looks super damaged… it’s really scary for me… :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

  26. Keirti, a great deal of care needs to be taken while using such styling products, but regular use can severely damage hair, I am bit careful now :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly:

  27. Hi Jomol!!!!!!!!!!!! I was away for the week n reading all posts now :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
    Niceeee review! And u have totally awesome hair, so healthy n beautiful!!!!!! :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

  32. Hi Jomol,

    Just realised you were a keralite… 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:

  33. 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:

  46. hi, i am new here. i need one suggestion. i have thick and wavy hair. so, will you recommend this straightener to me? and how long does the straightening stay?

    thanks.. 😉
    and by the way i just love love love your hair… ! :inlove:

  47. This doesn’t make the hair poker straight, does it? Mine leaves the ends curled out, no matter how hard i try. 🙁 Also, the outer body gets heated pretty quick.

  48. 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.

  49. Hey jamol
    Have u tried philips 8339 pro care. I’m confuses b/w the one you reviewed and this one but defly need to buy any 1 as soon asap. Also it seems 8339 doesnt ve ion conditioning. Plz plz plz help me.

  50. 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.
