I am here today to tell you about this amazing new hair tool that I received. In exchange for my honest opinion, I received the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Hair Straightener.
Personally, I've never heard of the brand before, and I didn't have high expectations, but I'll let you know now, I was blown away by the quality of the product. Let us start with the packaging. Elegant, sleek and very fancy. Once you pull off the cardboard sleeve, the straightener comes in a heavy duty, thick black box, which can come in handy for storing stuff later.
It even came with this amazing tape sealer that leaves an imprint once the tape has been peeled off. That is awesome.
Inside the box, I was surprised to see it came with a carrying case too! I have two flat irons; one at my home and one at my boyfriend's house, and they have both been replaced with this one. The fact that I have a case for it will make it great for travelling.
Inside the box you also receive a user manual and a very chic card with a code to receive exclusives from the Xtava website, including deals and private sales.
What also amazes me is that the bag is lined with some sort of aluminum heat protectant, which I assume prevents the flat iron from burning through the bag once you store it away? Well, I would still recommend leaving it out to cool down before putting it away.
This is the straightener with the stickers still on it. Nice to see that they have this to protect the flat iron until you open it. This is a 2 inch flat iron, whereas I'm used to I think 1-1.5.
A little about the features. This straightener can go from 265-445 degrees in 10 degree intervals. Depending on the thickness of your hair and your hair type, you can choose the temperature based on what you need.
It also comes with a cool locking mechanism to lock the clamps in place or open it up if you're using it.
I used to wrap the cord around my old hair straightener to keep it closed, but now it's already done for you!
It's pretty sleek and very lightweight.
It only took about a minute and a half to heat up, and it was ready to use.
So what does the infrared offer compared to regular hair straighteners? The infrared heat penetrates the hair cuticles to seal in natural moisture and provide a gorgeous shine. The straightener is designed to prevent heat damage, since the temperature regulator inside it ensures that the temperature you choose remains constant and evenly dispersed, which stops the potential of burning your hair.
The ceramic tourmaline plates help with preventing tugging and tearing, which is the main cause of frizziness.
This is my hair, natural after a wash.
It gets pretty wavy and I have so many fly-aways.
My hair has never looked healthier and straighter.
The hair straightener did an amazing job at straightening my hair. It was easy to use and the 2 inch size definitely sped up the process. Most of the time my hair tugs once I get all the way to the tip, but with this one it didn't tug at all.
This hair straightener is amazing for the price. My hair even feels so much softer and looks super shiny. I cannot stop touching my hair now! Lately I've been tying up my hair because I've been too lazy to style it, but the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Hair Straightener has made things so much easier for me. I can get my hair fully straightened in less than 10 minutes now, and thats surprising since I have a lot of hair and it's SUPER long.
You can purchase the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Hair Straightener on Amazon, and check out their website where they also have other amazing hair tools here.
