|Jose Eber Styling Iron. RRP: £120|
Hey guys! Here's a requested review on the straighteners I bought at my Harrods shopping spree! Click here to read my 'Harrods Shopping Spree' post.
Let's just say I was fed up of my £25 babyliss straighteners that would give my a wave rather than straight hair and curls that were basically non- existent.
I have never heard of this brand before and I had only seen the stall in Harrods but they are also in Selfridges too.
They work on damp and dry hair which really appeals to me because I am in a rush every day of my life!
They're made of titanium and ceramic plates which are supposed to have some sort of benefit, mostly to help control any frizz and give smoother more shiny results.
I just hear the words and think " OoOoOo They must be good then".
I'm not too keen on them being wide plated because I usually get thin ones but I thought I would give them a try.
They also have lifetime warranty which is great, bearing in mind the small print says that doesn't include wear and tear (So what else do I need warranty for?! Blergh.)
The plates can get VERY hot, and because they are wide plates I personally find it a bit harder to control then thin plates. I would recommend using a heat protecting glove.
This glove is one that I got along with my 'amika' hair curler, but i'm sure you can buy one separately.
So here is an example of a finished look.
The first picture is of my natural hair, freshly washed, no product and because I have naturally quite curly hair when it's brushed out it's disgustingly frizzy!
The second picture is of just strait hair. It's always best to take small sections but you can take bigger ones because of the size of the plates which is one advantage.
The different heat settings allow you to choose how hot you want the plates to go but I always straiten my hair at 200.
And finally, the third picture is of curls, styled with the straightener. I found it difficult to make curls simply because of the size of the plates, because they are wide it can be harder to control when twisting the hair around, the main reason I would suggest using a heat protecting glove.
I didn't realize how useful it would be to have a straightener that could work on damp hair but OMG I love it! Of course you need to go over the hair a few times to get it dead strait but it doesn't leave a greasy feeling afterwards, if anything it is completely dry!
I give this product 8/10.
To keep your'e hair looking and feeling natural I would recommend using Bed Head's Spoil Me Spray! It control's frizz instantly without any feeling of product in the hair.
