The BaByliss ST410E quickly heats up to a temperature of 230 degrees. This is the only temperature setting of this flat iron. This high temperature is hot enough to also tame the most stiff and thick locks. So you quickly change your curling bunch into a steep section. The plates of this hair straightener are completely ceramic. So you will damage your hair by the heat. Because the plates are flexible, you can also use this flat iron to make a nice stroke in your hair. When you are done, place the straightener on the supplied heat resistant mat. Have you forgotten to turn off the straightener? No problem, because this model has automatic shutdown.
