The CHI Volcanic Lava has ceramic plates with real volcanic lava. Sounds strong, but is very good for your hair. Lava is a sustainable natural product that conducts the very best heat. So you do not need a high temperature to quickly make your hair straight. Much safer for your hair. In addition, the minerals in the lava strengthen your hair and the ions ensure that your hair will shine extra. The hair straightener has 9 temperature settings and so you choose how much heat you style. Furthermore, the plates are flexible, so you can easily curl or stroke your hair. For added protection, use the included CHI Silk Infusion, especially for curly and frizzy hair.
