A good hair straightener (flat iron) has to straighten the hair without tugging it as well as remain safe to use on the hair. Especially with Malaysia having a hot and humid climate, ensuring the hair stays sleek can be a challenge. Well, it may not be so with Philips' MoistureProtect Hair Straightener.
As its name suggests, the flat iron is designed with a MoistureProtect technology that ensures moisture does not escape the hair when being applied with heat. It's great against frizziness due to a built-in Sensor Technology that diagnoses your hair 30 times every second to ensure the right temperature is applied onto the hair and that hydration is preserved.
Moreover, by utilizing floating ceramic plates that contain negative ions to combat frizziness and straighten your hair easily, the iron's design ensures less pressure on your hair which leads to lower risk of hair breakage. Not forgetting, you can actually set the heat manually with 3 digital temperature options provided, which lots of higher-end models don't offer. Additionally, the iron has a decent heat up time of 15 seconds and an auto shut-off feature after an hour.
When it comes to real-life tests, there's been a call for a better protective body as the straightener reportedly takes awhile to cool down and that it can be too hot to hold. Some did say that the flat iron is lightweight and that with the provided traveling pouch, making it quite portable.
Overall, it's a simple tool that does its job. Minor hiccups are present but nothing too major to not dismiss this product.
