How old are your hair straighteners?

When we purchase a piece of technology it's generally an investment right?  We set ourselves a maximum budget and we buy the best product we can afford, and use it until it no longer works.  But here's the thing about technology - it's always moving forward!

What was top of the line 5 years ago (heck, even 1 year ago) is now the equivalent of a Tamagotchi compared to a Nintendo Switch.  Of a Nokia 6310 to an iPhone 13.  And hair technology is no different.

Compare straighteners now to straighteners 5 years ago.  The difference is astounding!  We now know the importance of choosing straighteners with plates that evenly distribute heat.  We know different hair types require different maximum temperatures.  And how many of us have been saved by the handy auto-switch off function?!

And by using old technology straighteners, chances are you're actually damaging your hair - so rather than waiting for them to die the ultimate techno-death, it's time to reassess your current straighteners now!

We're putting together a really exciting trial team which will see 20 reviewers put a brand new straightener to the test.  Here's where it gets interesting.  These aren't hitting retail stores until around the November 1st and we can't publicly talk about them until then.  Neither can the trial team!  We can say they are going to retail for $439.99 and are based on the latest in STEAM straightening technology.  Christmas really will come early for the members of this trial team!

Steam Technology.

  • Steam technology acts as a conditioning mist, infusing hair with moisture while transforming it into long-lasting, poker straight hair that shines and feels soft and satiny.
  • The mystery straighteners offer you the option to use the base station to automatically fill the straightener in seconds, or you can fill the straightener reservoir directly.
  • The plates are titanium plates, max wide and cushioned to provide the ulitimate temperature stability for poker straight hair in one pass.
  • There's a removable detangling comb that allows for 3D straightening, sectioning and detangling hair as you style it!
  • You'll experience super controlled styling with 5 heat settings up to 220°C and integrated sensors to prevent excessive heat.
  • Hair will stay straight for at least 24 hours!

WE KNOW!!  It sounds amazing!!  

So if you'd like to put your hand up to trial this super secret, super amazing product you'll need to take our survey to put your hand up.

Then why not come back here and tell us all about your current straighteners - we'd love to hear how old they are, what technology they utilise and if they need an upgrade!

These sound amazing! I'm sightly embarrased to admit that my hair straightener is ~12 years old(!!). And it's definitely due for an upgrade - some of the coating is coming off, and they don't fully close all the way anymore! This new tech sounds amazing for reducing the impact of heat styling on hair too - I'd love to put it to the test!

I've been using my GHD for over 10 years- They're dying slowly and I am sure not as hot as they once were. I straighten my hair two or three times a week- this would be amazing to trial!!

My straightener is old and would love love to trial a straightener that keeps your hair for at least 24 hours!!!!! WOW

21st October, 2021

Yes please!! I have tried alot of products and would love to see if this helps with the looking decent process, hehe

I bought my hair straightener a couple of years ago to upgrfe my previous one which was about 8 years old! I opted for a very mid range straightener and noticed the technology had definitely progressed since my previous purchase! My regret is not having saved and invested in a more salon quality straightner, as I still find I have to go over the same sections multiple time to really target my stubborn waves!

I used to have a great wet to straight one. Didn't quite know it was damaging to hair to straighten while still wet at the time. It was stolen. Since then I've had second hand myhd and a so called ghd (I think it might be a fake) however I do not straighten my hair often I actually was wanting the hair curler machine that was in the beauty vault but some other lucky person got it

Reading the comments here it all comes to getting the frizz back after straightening. So I am very keen to see if this product does the trick.

I have thick, slightly wavy hair that tends to frizz after washing, so these straighteners sound fantastic. Would love to try them.

I've got some beautiful rose gold GHD's... Those bad boys have been around for almost 8 years. They're great, but I do notice after a few hours the 'frizz' returns in full force :| I'd love an opportunity to trial straighteners that will leave my hair looking pretty for more than just a small handful of hours so I can avoid the typical 'Mum-bun' or messy pony! Xx

I hardly straighten my hair, it is super curly and long so takes awhile. I regularly visit the hairdresser (before lockdown) and always get them to straighten for me, it lasts until I wash my hair, fantastic. The opportunity to try out the steam straightener would be fantastic, got to be better than the straightening brush I have at home :)

My hair is quite frizzy so I find it hard to achieve that really nice silky straight look like other people. Would love to try a steam straightener, that sounds pretty fun and seems like it would achieve the look I'm after. Would love to try

The only time I’ve ever had a great result from straightening is when a stylist does it for me. I guess my cheapie straighteners just aren’t that great and I’m worried about damaging the ends of my hair, that’s why they don’t get used much at home. Picking at this price point these mystery straighteners will be fabulous!

21st October, 2021

This sounds amazing my hair straightners do the trick but I am always surprised how much better it looks when done at the salon. Love to have salon hair every day from home!

21st October, 2021

Mine are very old and I'm sure it takes way longer to straighten as a result. A lot of the time my daughters have borrowed them too, so it would be great to try some new ones.
