With the Remington S5505, you can style your hair up to a temperature of 230ºC. This is useful when you have thick and coarse hair that can use the extra heat to be straightened. This hair straightener is also suitable for thinner hair. The temperature can be easily adjusted to your hair type by using the plus and minus buttons. You'll be able to see the selected temperature on the LCD display. This already happens after 15 seconds; the time required to heat up. Want to try curls for a change? No problem. Thanks to the flexible plates, you can also create curls and waves with this hair straightener.
