Hair Protect
Easy to Use
User rating
Pros: Speedy straightening and ultimate hair protection. It also won’t leave that “I just did my hair” smell after straightening. Featuring ultra modern technologies for increased performance and safety. Silicone grips give you a higher level of control during the ironing process. They also enable smooth gliding through your hair and give it smooth and shiny look like you wouldn’t believe. High operating temperature and its even distribution will get every hair type straightened in just one go through. It heats up almost instantly, doesn’t get hot anywhere near your fingers, it’s easy to grip and use. Things as coarse hair, frizz, flyaways, and that feeling of having no control over your hair are all things of the past with this new gem.

Cons: Some customers didn’t quite enjoy the silicone grips, but the overwhelming number of them did. No auto shut-off option.

Paul Mitchell Protools Express Ionstyle 1 inch reviewThe best hair straightener for your hair type or specific needs and preferences can truly be a pain to find. Online searches quickly get out of your hands, and you end up even more confused and baffled than when you started.

The good news is, you can always count on me to disperse all the doubts and find the best option for you.

Today we’ll check out a product coming from Paul Mitchell family, and see if it’s a big boom or a giant bust. So, if you have a free couple of minutes, by all means, join me and let’s go together to the end of this “investigation”.

Why should you join me through this Paul Mitchell hair straightener review?

Because I’m a certified “detective” when it comes to hair products.

I’m a professional hairstylist and an ex-judge in hairstyling competitions. Besides that, I’ve been writing different reviews and blog posts for the better part of my life. One could say I know a great deal about hair and all those tools that make it look beautiful.

One more point in my favor is the fact that I pay a great deal of attention to all the user have to say about the product they’ve bought. There’s no greater seal of approval for a product then a happy customer. Seeing how the tool performs in real-life situations for the people who actually bought and used it shows us more than all the marketing strategies in the world ever could.

So, if I got you interested even a little bit, feel free to continue our journey alongside little ol’ me.

The positive user reviews

That was all nice and dandy, but let’s see if customers agree with everything the company:

  • This truly is a wonderful instrument. It adds a great deal of body, shine, and softness to my hair. It doesn’t pull on it, burn it, or do anything that might be construed as harmful, quite the opposite.
  • I have a relaxed African-American hair, and this tool certainly does it justice. My recommendation
  • Fabulous!!! It’s the best hair straightener ever! It makes my hair so shiny and soft to the touch.
  • My hair is very thick and coarse, and this iron straightens it in one pass and leaves it softer than ever. My hair remains perfectly straight until I wash it. Totally worth the money
  • This flat iron is just the perfect size. It heats up really fast, and the width of the plates is perfect. I definitely recommend it
  • My hair is medium length, thick, and curly. I’ve tried every hair straightener that’s out there. I’m not exaggerating, literally every one I could get my hands on.
  • This is by far the best one I’ve tried, and I’ll keep on using it forever. It’s so gentle on my hair, and there’s no pulling or tugging whatsoever. It glides through it perfectly, and I couldn’t be happier with it
  • It can make my hair perfectly straight or curly with equally good results
  • I use it for six months now, and it’s still like brand new. It’s very well made, and I just love the overall design. The heat never gets near my fingers, which is a very big deal for me considering the blunders from the past
  • It straightens my unruly hair without a hitch and allows me to give it a little wave at the ends. I love how my hair doesn’t smell all burnt after I’m using it

Time for some not so pleasant experiences:

  • It doesn’t have an auto shut-off option
