Get smooth, sleek hair with Sedu's Ceramic Tourmaline Hair Styler. No blow-out required.

Large Editorial Image


January 24, 2009

I used to think that I should be able to get my naturally wavy hair stick-straight with a round brush and a hairdryer. After all, hair stylists do it all the time. Plus, my last memory of a straightening iron was in the 80s, when my Conair crimping iron came with flat plates (Useless!). So even after I snagged the Sedu Revolution Nano Ceramic Tourmaline Hair Styler ($140), I was so skeptical that it took a while for me to break it out of the box. But now that I have, it's a whole new world of hair! The temperature setting means I can adjust it for my hair type (no scorching fine hair, no need to keeping passing it over coarse hair again and again), the curved edges mean I can turn under the ends. And my hair actually gets… straight. Not just “mostly straight but puffy and frizzy” the way it does when I'm (impatiently) wielding my blow-dryer, but sleek and smooth. It's a far cry from the technology of the 80s. I top the look off with some Kerastase Vernis Nutri-Sculpt Ultra-Shine Top Coat ($29), and and I've got the kind of swingy, shiny, glossy hair that used to require a blow-out.
