Pana­sonic Multi-styling Straight­ener EH-HW58, $89

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Beauty -

WHAT It has at­tach­ments for mak­ing hair straighter or fuller, as well as three curl­ing at­tach­ments. There are five tem­per­a­ture set­tings – the low­est at 150 deg C for dam­aged hair, and the high­est at 200 deg C, for health­ier tresses. The heat­ing plates have a photo-ce­ramic coat­ing that helps pre­vent coloured hair from fad­ing. WHY I LOVE IT The straight­ener took about 30 sec­onds to reach 180 deg C. The ex­te­rior parts cov­er­ing the heat­ing plates were much wider than the plates them­selves, so I felt safe hold­ing the gad­get close to my scalp with­out wor­ry­ing about burning my­self. The ex­te­rior did get warm, but it wasn’t as hot as the other two irons tested. I also liked the de­tailed il­lus­tra­tions show­ing novices how to sec­tion hair be­fore styling it. THE DOWN­SIDE I needed more time to style my hair as the small heat­ing plates took slightly longer to reach the de­sired tem­per­a­ture. The power switch (a flat but­ton) also got in the way – I accidentally switched off the straight­ener sev­eral times.
