This straightening iron appliance is intended
for household use. This unit is designed to
operate at 120/240 volts AC. Use on Alternating
Current (50/60 hertz) only.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). As a safety feature,
this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat
this safety feature.
This straightening iron will automatically adjust
to the proper voltage. Use an adapter plug with
correct configuration, prior to use in outlet.
DRYING SYSTEM WITH
Dry Ceramic Straightener features
our exclusive vent and channel design, allow-
ing for use on dry or damp hair. When used on
damp hair, simply press the WET button (green
light will come on) and excess water is forced
into channels where it can escape as steam.
The steam evaporates through the vents in
the housing, while the hair's natural moisture
is sealed into the cuticle. Once done or before
using your straightener on dry hair, press the
WET button again to go back to the normal dry
CAUTION: Steam evaporating through the
vents may be hot. During use, avoid touching
or blocking the vents and direct drying vents
away from your scalp and face.
1. Plug the straightening iron cord into any
household outlet (120/240V). Press ON/OFF
button (the red light will go on). The iron will
heat up very quickly. The green indicator light
will indicate that the unit is set to the
WET setting. To turn off, press OFF button (red
light will go off). Never leave your straighten-
ing iron on and unattended. However, should
you fail to turn the unit off, it will shut itself off
automatically within 60 minutes.
WARNING: The straightening iron's ceram
iccoated plates will get very hot within a
few seconds and should not be placed in
contact with the skin after the straighten
ing iron has been turned on.
Start with a hair section that is 2" wide and
no more than 1/2" thick. Open the iron and
place a hair section between the two hot
plates, close to the scalp. Trap hair between
the plates by firmly squeezing the handles
together. While maintaining the tension, slowly
pull the unit down along the hair section
toward the end of hair. At the end of hair
section, release the pressure on the handle
and allow the hair section to slide out. Repeat
process on additional sections of hair until you
achieve the hair style you desire. It may be
necessary to repeat process on certain areas,
depending on the texture of your hair or how
damp it is.
Some experience is necessary when learning
to use this straightening iron. After using iron
several times, you will learn the ideal way to
straighten and style your hair easily.
NOTE: Please refer to the temperature setting
guide for heat settings, especially if using your
iron on wet hair.
