Beauty Review: HSI Professional 1” Digital Ceramic Infrared Flat Iron WorldWide Edition


One hair style that will NEVER go out of style is straight. I am more than likely to wear my hair straight almost 6/7 days out of the week. Sometimes I might flip out the ends, curl it, or wear it “beach wave sexy”. But it’s just easier for me to wear it straight!


This flat iron has shown me AGAIN and AGAIN how irreplaceable it is to me in my hair styling needs. I usually blow dry my hair and then straighten it. With the HSI Flat Iron I don’t have to blow dry it if I don't want to. I can wash my hair and let it air dry the night before and just straighten it in the morning before heading out the door.


I love that it is digital. It is so easy to just plug-in and push the button to turn it on. Then you can press the 450* button and it will start heating up and reach 450* within just a minute. It impressed me with just how quickly it heats up to the desired temperature, so I can get to work on my hair!


You can adjust the temperature of course. If you don’t want it to get to the full 450* it has a + and – button as well, so you can decrease it to whatever temp is right for you.

I love the fact that although it reaches a very high temperature the outside of the hair straightener doesn’t get hot. I love that I don’t have to wear a heat protective glove just to straighten my hair. Usually when a flat iron gets this hot the plastic will get hot as well, making it hard to use with bare hands.

It comes with a heat glove just in case, but I never have had to use it. I use it at the highest and still it doesn’t get so hot on the outside that I need it. They send it just for a precaution.

I also like the fact that it has a safety feature built in. I don’t know how many times I’d plug in the straightener and then have to clean up a mess the kids made or do something and totally forget for about 10-15 minutes that it was plugged in and turned on.. when I came back- it would be flashing red and signaling that it shut itself off because it was on too long without being used! THAT is awesome!


This is BY FAR the best flat iron I’ve ever owned. It takes my dull, frizzy hair and transforms it into a shiny, beautiful, manageable head of hair. My hair looks absolutely awful if I go to sleep with my hair wet, but sometimes I just don’t feel like blow-drying it.. with this flat iron I can hit the sack and not worry that my hair will look a mess in the morning!


I also love that it can work on any voltage. If you travel this is a good thing. Hotels, Motels, Cabins, and places outside the U.S. might have a lower or higher voltage tolerance. This flat iron will work everywhere you go! I love that it comes with it’s own travel pouch! Open-mouthed smile

The plates on the straightener line up AMAZING, I’ve had several flat irons that would grab and pull my hair instead of straightening it.. and OUCH! This didn’t though, it went through my hair very smoothly without it yanking.

I have really long hair, and I don’t have an issue getting from root to end. I love that it doesn’t damage my hair. It has ceramic ionic system with an infrared technology. This means that it doesn’t just heat up the top layer of the hair.. it goes to the center of the hair follicle to straighten it and eliminate frizz.


It also doesn’t leave hot spots in the hair, which is what causes damage over time. The infrared protects the hair from overheating. My hair looks so healthy, shiny, and smooth.

I also like that it not only has a 360* swivel cord but it is really long. SO no matter where a plug-in is located, you can still straighten/curl/flip your hair in front of a mirror.

To flip it out you do as you see above. Run the flat iron all the way through your hair until you get to the ends and then flip up with the iron. To flip it in do the opposite.. roll it under instead of up.


and to curl the hair with a flat iron--


Like before.. Run the flat iron through your hair until you reach the ends, and then roll your hair up like you would with a curling iron and then slowly pull down.


and here is my curl! Open-mouthed smile


and I’ve even started straightening it even if I’m wearing it up! Nice, huh?

I give this flat iron a 10/10!


Even the girls with the most stubborn types of hair can now say good-bye to annoying frizz. It's sleek time!
