Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Giraffe Flat Iron / Hair Straightener Review

I recently had the pleasure of testing the Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Giraffe Flat Iron / Hair Straightener from First off it came in a Giraffe design which is absolutely adorable and very stylish! This iron is new to the market and made for professionals in the beauty industry. The iron will heat up to 450 degrees F.  Which is the hottest on the market right now!  With adjustable heat settings that can be used to straighten ultra thick frizzy hair to ultra thin hair. My daughters hair is super think and very curly and finding a flatiron that really works great in her hair has been impossible until now. The Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Giraffe Flat Iron we found it works amazing on her hair. I am so very pleased with this product and it’s performance. I was able to straighten her hair much faster than with our other straighteners we own, and I didn’t have to go over the hair as many times to get the desired look. I like how quickly this iron heated up and how shiny her hair turned out. I think this is a great product that does what it is supposed to do.  And would recommend it for anyone especially as a gift.

What makes the Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Giraffe Flat Iron / Hair Straightener so great?

Nano Titanium Technology which provides lightweight strength, and has a super smooth surface for snag free styling and even heat distribution.

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. (SOURCE
