This flat iron has been featured in The New York Times Style Section and for a very good reason. Almost anything about it is amazing, from the results it creates to its price.
It makes hair really smooth and shiny, but without that unnatural, super-straight look.
The Ultra Smooth Styling Iron has 1 inch ceramic coated plates infused with keratin protein and argan oil.
Keratin protein is used to improve strength, shine and manageability of the hair, while at the same time it reduces frizz.
On the other hand, argan oil hydrates and repairs damaged hair. It is also very good at smoothing the hair cuticle, creating a healthy, conditioned look.
Ceramic emits far infrared heat that produces negative ions that seal hair’s moisture.
When all this is combined and when these properties are transferred to the hair, the results are outstanding shine, smoothness and silkiness, no frizz and almost completely gone split ends and breakage.
As one user said: “the best advantage of this straightener though is that I’m no longer tied to getting the best style for my hair right after a wash and blow dry like before. ”
The iron heats up very fast and max temperature is 450 degrees Fahrenheit. There are also digital controls.
If you happen to forget to turn off the tool, there is an auto shut off function that will be activated within one hour of non-use.
There is one great feature that you will love: there is a locking mechanism that keeps plates shut for easy storage and travel.
And let’s not forget that the straightener has a 9 foot cord for easy styling.
The only disadvantage of this iron is that the buttons are right on the handle so you can accidentally turn it off or change temperature while using it.
In the end, Cricket Ultra Smooth Styling Iron does exactly what it claims. It is a very good straightener that will make your hair silky and soft.
