The infrared technology deeply penetrates the hair and heats it from inside out. The hair is heated evenly and much quicker than by a hair straightener without this technology. This means styling in half the time, thus reducing the heat damage.
When plates are pressed together too tightly when moving the straightener from roots to the ends of hair, the hair might get stuck between the plates occasionally. If less pressure is used when handling the straightener, it should eliminate the issue.
The heat sensor strips which are embedded in the ceramic plates automatically detect hair's dryness and damage. They adjust to protect hair from excessive heat and offer 50% less damage and 50% less breaking and splitting, when compared to hair straighteners without the heat sensor technology.
