This amazing appliance features pure tourmaline ceramic plates, not coatings, which means that your locks will be smooth, silky and most importantly: healthy. How? The ceramic’s infrared heat and tourmaline’s negative ions are able to seal in natural moisture and effortlessly smooth it down to produce perfectly straight results with increased shine. The adjustable temperatures (176 degrees F to 460 degrees F) make this styling iron ideal for all hair types.

Whether you choose to curl, flip, straighten, de-frizz, add volume and body, or tame even the wildest of hair, the G3 is the only styling iron you will ever need. Available in black, pink and white.

Looking for some basic tips on how to achieve enviable smooth and shiny locks?

1) Invest in your flat iron. A quality flat iron should last up to 10 years. Don’t skimp on the purchase, it will cause more damage in the long run. You get what you pay for.

2) A heat protector is a must! I highly recommend MoroccanOil. For fine hair, use MoroccanOil Light. Make sure you don’t apply any heat protector on the top three inches of hair closest to your scalp. Your hair will look greasy. Put a drop on your hands, rub your hands together and then apply from the bottom up, as if your fingers are a comb. With this kind of product, a little bit goes a long way.

3) Make sure the temperature is right for your hair. This is a big one. Hair that is fine, damaged or chemically treated should only be ironed at a low setting, below 300 degrees. Normal hair can be ironed at 300-380 and thick, coarse or extra curly hair at 350-400. Start at a lower level and increase as needed.

4) Separate hair into sections to make the process more manageable.  Taking too much hair at once will only result in having to repeat using the iron over the same section of hair. The smaller the sections, the better.

5) Don’t hold the flat iron still on your hair at any point during the straightening process. It will create a kink in your hair.
