The Corioliss C1 Platinum Zebra Professional Titanium Styling Iron is a fashion forward, trendy yet fantastically efficient hair straightener that is loaded with the latest technology to ensure you look your best.
We checked it out and then checked in with reviewers to see what they thought. All reviewers on Amazon gave it a 4 to 5 star rating and said they won’t go back to their more expensive straighteners. Let’s take a look at what this styler has to offer:
- 1 Inch/2.54 Cm Titanium Plates
- Variable Digital Temperature Control From 60ᵒC To 210ᵒC
- Far Infrared Heat
- Negative Ion Technology
- On/Off Switch
- LED Indicator Light
- Auto Sleep Mode
- 3 Metre 360ᵒ Swivel Cord
- Dual Voltage
2.54 cm Titanium Plates – With so many different types of plates to choose from why are titanium plates better? Titanium plates are strong, yet lightweight and heat up quickly. Corioliss says they are “microscopically smoother than ceramic plates” which means no tugging or pulling on your hair. They deliver constant, even heating with no hot spots and glide smoothly over the hair. Corioliss also states with this styler only one pass is needed to straighten the hair for a smooth, sleek shine. That’s a pretty bold statement considering all the competition!
Variable Digital Temperature Control – Straighteners that allow you to vary the temperature are better because not only is each person’s hair different, but we each have different types of hair in different places on our heads, from the fringe to the sides to the back. By adjusting the temperature you can be sure to get optimal styling without damaging the finer pieces. Don’t know what temperature is right for your hair? Well neither do a lot of people and it’s not a one size fits all type of thing. We did a little research and this is what we found:
|For fine or damaged hair:||250-300ᵒ F||121 to 149ᵒ C|
|For medium/average hair:||300-350ᵒ F||149 to 177ᵒ C|
|For thick or coarse hair:||350-400ᵒ F||149 to 204ᵒ C|
Just remember this is a conservative approximation based on internet research to give the user a general idea. Refer to your straightener’s instructions and if you have more questions, you can always contact the manufacturer and/or your stylist to help determine what temperature is best for your hair.
Far Infrared Heat– This technology actually heats the hair from the inside out so less heat is needed and therefore causes less damage to the hair shaft. You can work faster and more efficiently for a beautiful style that lasts.
Negative Ion Technology– The negative ion technology neutralizes the positive ions that cause nasty static electricity resulting in dry, dull, unmanageable hair with flyaways. It locks in moisture so your hair looks shiny and healthy, and stays where you want it.
On/Off Light – It comes with an on/off switch so you can leave it plugged in if you like and only turn it on when you’re ready to use it.
LED Light – There’s an LED light on the inside of the handle to let you know when it is on and ready to style. No more singed fingers in an attempt to see if it is on. And no more waiting time for this little number to heat up either, as its ready in less than 20 seconds. Now that’s service!
Auto Sleep Mode – We all know what it’s like to run out the door in the morning and leave the coffeepot on. Then you spend your whole day at work worrying if it will burn down your flat!. Well now you don’t need to worry about that because this straightener will shut itself off if it is left unattended for more than 30 minutes. Whew! One less thing to worry about!
Salon Length, 3 Metre 360ᵒ Swivel Cord – One of the biggest annoyances users have is using a straightener with a cord that barely reaches from the wall plug to the mirror. This straightener comes with a salon length 3 metre cord so you have plenty to work with. The cord also swivels 360ᵒ so it doesn’t get all tangled up while you’re working. This is especially helpful for those with long hair.
Dual Voltage – For the travelers among us, this straightener will work all over the world. It is designed to operate between 120-240V AC with the same great performance no matter where you are from Manchester to Mississippi.
The design of this straightener is unique to say the least. It comes in sleek black accented with lovely black and white zebra stripes to appeal to the animal-print-loving-fashionista in all of us. If that weren’t enough, it also comes with a matching heat resistant mat and travel pouch. Now you can look great even before you style.
The Corioliss C1 Platinum Zebra Professional Titanium Styling Iron is great for the little diva in all of us because it is not only beautiful, it also gives professional quality styles without the salon price. It’s loaded with hair protecting and styling technology to give you the ultimate styles you want any time, without leaving your hair damaged and dull. The titanium plates are smooth and deliver constant, even heating while maintaining their temperature while you style. The far infrared technology heats the hair from the inside out keeping the cuticle smooth and healthy, and the negative ion charges eliminate static and flyways so you hair is sleek and stays put.
Reviewers were so happy with this straightener they vowed never to go back to their more expensive straighteners. Why indeed, when you can get this much satisfaction and beautification for less than half the price of other straighteners?
