The MoistureProtect straightener has an innovative new sensor technology called the Moisture Protect sensor.

This technology has been specifically designed to preserve the natural hydration of your hair. The sensor diagnoses your hair 30 times per second and adapts the temperature to preserve natural hydration of your hair. This gives advanced protection to your hair from overheating and therefore keeps your hair healthier and shinier. We've already turned the sensor on so you can enjoy maximum protection right from the start.
