Izutech have created a flat iron which joins the growing number of niche-targeted products for those of us with extra tick, coarse, frizzy or colored hair. But is there anything that really sets it apart from its rivals? Would this flat iron be a good match for you and your hair? Hopefully this review will give you enough information to be well on your way to answering that question!
Let’s take a basic first look at it
Just in case you’re not familiar with Izutech – this company is best known for producing styling tools for salon professionals. This flat iron is best suited to different straightening styles and keratin treatments. Its plates are made of high-quality titanium which is lightweight, durable and scratch resistant, and allows heat to increase rapidly and evenly while preventing pulling or friction when in contact with your hair.
The iron also uses flash heating technology which accelerates heating of the plates in the shortest possible time. Temperatures can be set between 250 and 450 degrees Fahrenheit depending on your preferences and hair type.
What other features does it have?
The combination of four design aspects makes the Izutech Flat Iron a joy to use: The ergonomic, warp-free and heat-resistant body ensure that you won’t get burned the way other irons can, while the 9-foot swivel cord ensures that you have freedom to move the iron all over your head without getting tangled or running short of cord. Then, for those international jet-setters among us, you’ll be happy to know that it’s a universal voltage device (120-240V) meaning you can use it with an adaptor in any country without fear of electrical damage.
Finally, if you forget to switch it off, don’t worry! This flat iron will turn itself off after an hour of inactivity.
The good stuff
The good news is that the Izutech Flat Iron does what it’s supposed to and more! Users have commented favorably on the speed with which it heats up and just how easy it is to use. Its lightweight design spares you aching wrists and frustration when holding it aloft for extended periods of time. On top of that, it’s easily portable, so whether you get rained on or simply don’t have time to use it, just throw it in your bag and plug it in when you get to work!
The bad stuff
To be frank, there’s not really much bad to say about this product. Even if you find you’re not that keen on the size of the plates, the product is made in two sizes – one slightly larger than the other. The only people who might find it takes longer to straighten their hair with this flat iron are those who simply want dead-straight, long locks with no curls or flair at the tips. If that’s you, you might want to consider an iron with 2” plates.
As you’ve probably guessed, I’m going to recommend the Izutech Flat Iron KTX450. The only Amazon reviewer to date agrees with me, having given it a solid 4 out of 5 stars. Don’t just take our word for it, though. There are other reliable flat iron reviews out there which feature a variety of products to help you make up your mind. Happy shopping!
