So, I got this product from the list of sponsored products. Dear IMBB – it was one of its kind thing at IMBB. You guys have always come up with best things for us; so was this time. It got us super excited to choose our favourite product from the list. I received the product 8 days ago, have used it 5 times till now, thrice on myself and twice on my mom. See, I cannot hold my excitement and I am telling you before jumping on to the review that this is the best straightener I have used till date. Want to know how? Read on 🙂

My Experience with Remington Wet 2 Straight Straightener:
It came in a big box, in a secure packaging containing the straightener, heat resistant pouch, and user manual. It has sleek frost light blue shade body and is the slimmest straightener you would have seen. So, for travelling purposes, you just have to put this into the heat resistant-pouch and you can fit this anywhere in your bag.
Talking about the features, the most unique feature in this straightener are the steam vents which are there to direct the steam (which forms while straightening wet hair) away. You have to be cautious to keep the vented surface on the opposite side and not facing your face. Also, do not keep your hand on these vents, it will be hot. Swivel cord, power button, digital screen, temperature setting buttons and the plate lock button are other features.
How To Use:
You have to plug in the cord, and then you have to press the power button for 2 seconds to switch it on. The temperature on the digital screen shows to be 200 degree Celsius by default. You can choose to decrease or increase the temperature as per your requirement. The indication in the booklet says:
- 140-170 for fine hair.
- 170-200 for medium hair.
- 200-230 for thick hair.
Generally for dry hair, you need lesser temperature and for wet hair, higher temperature is used.
After choosing the temperature, you can lock this temperature setting by pressing the minus (-) button for 2 seconds. The straightener takes around 10-15 seconds to reach this temperature during which the screen will keep blinking. I sectioned my hair meanwhile. After the temperature is achieved, you will hear a beep sound and the screen will stop blinking. You can now start styling your hair. I am impressed by this mechanism because straighteners with no heat setting mechanism may even burn your hair; you have to keep switching them on and off to regulate the temperature.
My Experience While Straightening Dry Hair:
As soon I received the product, I went to try it on my front bags. I followed the above steps and since my hair is of medium thickness, I chose the temperature to be 190 degrees Celsius. I sectioned my hair while the straightener took its time to reach the temperature. It reached this temperature in 8 seconds or so. I passed my hair through it once and they were straight. I passed them for the second time and they became poker straight. I loved it.
Then, the second time when I tried on my dry hair itself, I sectioned my hair into two, right and left. I straightened with temperature 210 degree Celsius. The appliance achieved it in proper 15 seconds and I had to pass my hair through the appliance only once to get the desired result. What else do we want? Like seriously, left half of my hair (which you are seeing in the pics) are straightened in 5-6 minutes. It is not like I took very small sections, I took sections thicker than what they take in parlours during straightening. I was really very happy with the results. Next time, if I want to go to some party or thing, I do not have to go to parlour and sit for hours to get my hair straightened (owing to the length). I know I sound like I am advertising for this product, but no, I am so impressed. My hair stayed poker straight for the whole day and naturally straight till my next wash.
My Experience while Straightening Wet Hair:
For wet hair, I set the temperature to 220 degree Celsius and passed a section of hair through it after combing the towel dried hair. They did not straighten in one go. That was obvious because towel-dried hair would need more heat. You hear a whizz sound which is the sound of wet hair touching the hot plates and steam escaping through the vents. In the manual, they say this sound does not mean that your hair is going through any damage. It is very normal. I had to pass each section 3-4 times through the straightener to get the result you are seeing in the pictures. They were still not dry or poker straight. Also, they became frizzy. The hair in the front normally also gets frizzy for a small period after wash, but they do net get frizzy after straightening. I had to run the straightener on my hair 2-3 times more to get proper results.
I tried it on my mom’s wet hair too. You can see she has super curly hair and I set the topmost 230 degree Celsius temperature for her. The hair got straightened but not at the ends, which did not get straight even after trying for 4-5 times. You can see nicely straightened hairs in the pic, but they got wavy in an hour. So, they were semi straightened I think.
Overall, I love love love the results on dry hair; I can myself straighten all of my hair within 15 minutes. While using on wet hair, I do not think the effect is good enough. I would prefer air drying or blow drying before and then using the straightener for perfect results. If you do not like poker straight hair and prefer natural-looking straight hair, you can go for direct straightening on wet hair.
On dry hair 10/5, on wet hair 3.5/5.
Thank you so much IMBB team for this straightener. You are the best. Love you guys 🙂
Until next time, take care!
