Herstyler Ionic Straightening Iron is a Folica exclusive, which was sent for review:
This one inch, professional straightening iron has many great features: titanium plates, which was excellent for smoothing my hair. It is advertised as having negative ion technology, which apparently eliminates static and frizz. While I received the Nano Gold, there is also an Ionic Silver colors on Folica. There is a 1 year limited warranty.
I like that there is a swivel cord!
What I didn’t like.
While the directions that came with the Nano Gold indicated that there is a variable temperature control; this is not true. I don’t know if it’s because I was sent an older model, or it’s a misprint.
This is the outside box:
There is only one control: OFF/ON (and a LED light indicator).
The Nano Gold reaches one temperature: 460 Degrees Fahrenheit. This high a heat may not work for everyone’s hair, and not having a variable control is both disappointing and surprising for a model that is selling on Folica at this time for $89.99.
UPDATE to the post!! Shortly before I was to publish this, I received an email from a Representative at Folica. They were thankful and gracious! They agreed that there is no variable temperature control on this straightening iron. They wanted everyone to know that it is not Folica’s intention to mislead anyone, and they were were glad that I would let them, (and my readers know about this). The product description that they use on Folica is what is supplied to them the from the companies, in this case, by Herstyler.
