Looking for a hair straightener? Not sure which one is a good match for your hair? Wondering how it will fit your home or your lifestyle? Looking to save precious time in the morning? Or perhaps you need a straightener than travels easily? Today I’m looking at the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium 1.25-inch Titanium Plated Straightening Iron. Hopefully, I’ll be able to answer some of your questions and help you make that all-important decision which is going to keep your hair looking gorgeous!
So, is it for me?
Babyliss, one of the big name in straighteners, is targeting those of us with naturally coarse, curly, thick or color-treated hair with its Pro Nano Titanium. In my view, there’s no real reason that a person with finer hair couldn’t get great results from it, but the slightly larger plates and high temperatures are a must for straightening out wiry hair.
How does it work?
Nano titanium plates are one of the most popular choices when it comes to straighteners. This technology enables ultra-rapid heating, even temperature distribution while reducing the build-up of static and allowing the plates to straighten your hair without risk of pulling or friction.
The Babyliss Pro is light and slim, which makes for great handling. Couple this with the long swivel power cord and you’re free to place the straightener all around your head without unplugging or tangling the cord.
Temperatures of up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit are shown on the device’s LED display.
What I like about it
I like the fact that, unlike some of its rivals, the Babyliss Pro reaches very high temperatures with minimal risk of burning. It heats up instantly and leaves your hair smooth and shiny, saving a lot of time compared with other straightening irons. It’s a real professional tool available for you to use in your own bedroom! If you’re often on the road, it’s easily transportable, and it accepts dual voltage in case you plan to take it to another country.
What I don’t like about it
There isn’t really much to dislike about the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium! Even those with thin hair can use it without much need of the higher temperature settings!
One concern I do have, however, is the longevity of the straightener. How long is it going to last before it dies on me? Some customers have reported a decline in performance over one or two years – not having the same effect on hair and not reaching the highest temperatures.
Overall, this is one of the best straighteners I have seen for this market. If you fall into the target market of having wiry, super-curly, thick and coarse hair, I’d be surprised if you can find a straightener to trump this one! It’s been picking up compliments in various hair straightener reviews and Amazon customers currently rate the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium with a mega 4.7 stars out of a possible 5. Now that is impressive!
