The steam function of the BaByliss ST396E hydrates your hair during styling. This way you prevent your hair from drying out due to the heat of the plates. The ceramic coating and 5 heat settings make the hair straightener suitable for every hair type. For example, thin, colored or damaged hair style at a temperature of 170 degrees and thicker hair at 230 degrees. The BaByliss ST396E has incorporated retractable pins into the plates so that you can also comb your hair during styling. The result is beautiful steep and healthy locks that do not become static thanks to ionic technology. With the BaByliss ST396E you also get a mini hair straightener for traveling.
