Think Africa’s Review of the Bio Ionic Onepass Straightening Iron
One of the things you’re looking for in a flat iron is its ability to heat up fast so that you don’t end up waiting for minutes for styling your hair.
A flat iron has to be a lot more than that though and there are certain things you can’t and shouldn’t compromise. No matter how fast it may work, a good flat iron is also going to need less passes over your hair and isn’t going to damage your hair either.
What’s the story with Bio Ionic Onepass Straightening Iron?
Designed and build to take the intense use in a professional salon, the Bio Ionic Onepass Straightening Iron isn’t the cheapest option out there, but it’s surely worth every single penny.
The flat iron does stand out with its technology as it heats up very fast and only needs half the time compared with the other standard flat irons.
The patented silicone speed stripes in the plates and the instant recovery for softer results add to the list of features and only scrolling down for a detailed look is going to help you better understand its performance.
Let’s take a closer look at the main features
As we mentioned previously, the flat iron features patented silicone speed strips in the plates which is why the flat iron heats up fast, allowing you to cut the styling time in half. The BioCeramic plates heat up the flat iron up to 400F degrees in no time and the recovery is immediate, so your hair looks nice and shiny at the end of your styling.
The OnePass Iron plates emit natural negative ions, whereas the far infrared energy breaks down water clusters from hair surface into tiny molecules that go deeply into your hair. Your hair is hydrated and the frizz is gone, leaving you with a shiny and silky smooth looking hair.
The Nano Ionic Mineral fused to cushion plates adds to the list of features, explaining the heating performance of the iron.
The flat iron also checks the box of adjustability as it comes with a Multi-level heat controller. You get to try various hair styles, according to your hair’s needs and type.
The cord is 9ft. long and it’s a swivel model so you get a lot a movement while using the flat iron.
The flat iron has an ergonomic design so your arm and shoulders don’t get strain from the use. The silicone strips get a good grip of your hair, but they don’t snag or tangle it.
Lightweight, the flat iron stays safe and sturdy in your hands and offers a reliable performance. It has a good build and there’s a durability feel about it.
Black and slim, the flat iron gives the professional look from the comfort of your home.
Do we like using it?
Heating up so fast, the flat iron is a great choice for many. You don’t have to pass several times over your hair nor have to wait between recovery.
The silicone strips get a good grip on your hair and the flat iron doesn’t slip from your hands either.
The multi-control heat settings are well placed and the risk for accidental use is minor. Going through the setting isn’t complicated and the flat iron is quite user friendly.
As it’s lightweight and well thought out, the flat iron checks also the box of easy use altogether.
It works fast and doesn’t damage your hair, which is always something to look for on a flat iron.
