You will prevent damage to your hair and save time by not having to add extra heat protecting products because the protective benefits are already in the straightener.

Plates

If you have fragile or damaged hair, then you know the importance of protecting your hair from the high heat of any styling tool. The S2044 Teflon warming plates allow your hair to move through the plates easily to avoid having to make several passes.

The Damage Therapy hair straightener is constructed with ceramic fabric which can tolerate extreme temperatures, is water-proof as well as chemical resistant, and features a non-stick, low-friction surface area. The ceramic fabric is additionally protected from product build-up, which means this hair straightener works for use with all wet hair care products.

The Damage Therapy Flat Iron has ceramic and tourmaline styling plates covered in this material, which supplies a highly protective barrier between your hair and the heated plates, thus reducing heat damage. The outcome is a much more effective flat iron which decreases damage, slides through your hair, and demands less passes.
