If you are in the market to purchase a flat Iron and a blow dryer here are my recommendation.
The KTX 450 from Izunami is made with Titanium plates.
For the consumer who does not know what this means, Titanium is a metallic element best known for its high strength and low density. It has dual heat sensors. Two independent heat sensors regulate the temperature of each plate simultaneously so that both plates maintain consistent temperature without overheating.
The Plus:
With the use of Kyocera MCH Heater, the advanced flash heating technology ensures immediate heat to reach its desired temperature in shortest time.
REQD™ (Rapid Engagement and quick disengagement) technology enables multiple sessions of heat recovery in less than a second to maintain the set temperature without heat fluctuation.
Moisture molecules in hair are reduced in size, enhancing their natural properties to give shiny, healthy results. $199.00
