New to the hair styling market,is the Cortex Solo 450 Collection which is made for professionals who are in the business of making people beautiful. This iron heats up to 450 degrees F, which is the hottest setting on the market. This flat iron can be used on the thickest and frizziest of hair or very thin hair. With its easy adjustable heat and ergonomic design, the results are awesome!
The Cortex Solo 45o has Nano Titanium Technology. This will provide lightweight strength with a super hard, smooth surface. This way you won’t have to worry about snagging your hair and you will get an even heat effect. Titanium plates are also an excellent conductor of heat which will emit negative ions and far infrared heat. This will give you the ability to keep in more moisture inside of your hair shaft, keep frizz and close the cuticle to give you smooth and shiny hair. This will result in less damage to your hair cuticle during your styling time.
As stated on their website:
Negative Ion Technology: Negative ions are atoms that can stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, etc., resulting in healthier hair and scalp. Negative ion energy is powerful enough to break apart clusters of water molecules. The smaller water molecules penetrate into the hair shaft by slipping between the cuticles, adding plumpness/volume to hair. The bombardment of negative ions also closes the hair cuticle, which is very good for the health and appearance of the hair.
Far Infrared Heat : Far Infrared (FIR) rays are electro-magnetic waves of energy, totally invisible to the naked eye, capable of penetrating deep into the human body, including the hair shaft. It therefore dries the hair from the inside out. The result is that more moisture remains in the hair shaft and there is less damage to the hair.
Flat Iron Experts sent me the Cortex Solo 450 – Zebra flat iron, a can of Thermal Shine, and their flat iron holder.
The Thermal Shine is used for silky smooth shine and heat protection while using a flat iron or hair dryer. I definitely needed this because my hair always seems so dry. Not only will it protect my hair and make it shiny, it also smells really good!
The flat iron holder is great because I don’t have to worry about burning my counter or accidentally grabbing part of the flat iron that is hot. It has suction cups on the bottom to secure it to your counter top and the flat iron fits like a glove!
The Cortex Solo 450 – Zebra flat iron is as cute in person as it was online. I love how it is packaged in the box, definitely makes a great presentation.
The power switch and temperature knob are easily accessible and very easy to read.
The Cortex Solo 450 – Zebra flat iron heats up in less than 60 seconds and works like a charm. Here is my hair after blow drying and brushing it “straight”
I used the Cortex Solo 450 – Zebra flat iron while watching TV and I am really pleased with how well it straightened my hair (and how shiny and healthy it looks after using the Thermal Shine).
And did you know that flat irons can do more than straighten hair? I didn’t, but after looking through the pamphlet that came with my Cortex Solo 450 – Zebra flat iron I learned that I can achieve soft curls, flip out, and flip in looks as well! I can’t wait to try them out!
