A few weeks ago Argos sent me some hair straighteners to try out; the Babyliss Pro 235 Styler. I must say it couldn’t have come at a perfect time as I you all know I have my hair short at the moment but just this weekend I went even shorter and opted for a pixie cut. These straighteners are just perfect for my now even shorter hair, as the plates are not too big so they allow you to straighten even the shortest bits of hair as well as long hair.
The straighteners have 20 temperature settings and heat up very fast. As I have quite thick Afro Caribbean hair I assumed my hair would need the highest setting but after using the straighteners I found out that they are hot enough to straighten any type of hair and that I was able to use it nowhere near the highest setting.
Titanium ceramic plates
Up to 235 celsius
15 second heat up
20 temperature settings
Auto shut off
Whilst using the straighteners I have noticed that they feel a lot smoother when gliding my hair through the plates. I have previously owned different types of straighteners before but there is a difference that I instantly notice when using them. (I am not a hair pro but I am assuming it has something to do with the titanium-ceramic plates).
Another pro for me when it comes to these straighteners is the fuchsia colour. I am not really a girly girl but I always seem to be drawn to fuchsia/pink accessories. I was recently on holiday and these straighteners came along with me and became part of my everyday hair routine staple. Now I can’t wait to start using them to experiment with my new pixie cut, I might try some sexy flicks next.
