If you’re after a pair of innovative straightening irons that are renowned for impressively high temperatures and salon professional capabilities, then these are the straighteners I would recommend to you. With an optimum temperature of 450F and built in keratin features, these irons have received 100% positive feedback for their fantastic results.
Initially I was skeptical about using the Izunami irons; I’m guessing like many of you it was not a brand I was aware of, but when I saw the ‘flash heating’ feature that heated the ceramic plates instantly and up to 450F (the same temperature you would expect to find on all salon professional models) I couldn’t wait to try them out.
After 30 seconds the irons were officially ready to use (although straight hair could easily have been created before that time arrived) and when I did come to use them, the results were utterly amazing. I have particularly thick hair, but this model straightened it so well that it even felt silky and smooth after I’d finished, even my roots were easy to manage.
Women with particularly coarse and afro Caribbean hair have even gone as far to say that these are the best irons they have used yet, even more efficient than chemical straightening! With 1-inch ceramic plates heating to 450F, the irons did not only straighten my hair, but were ideal for creating curls too; with temperatures that high, I was reassured they’d also stay in place all day.
Each plate is an inch thick, which initially made me think I would need to run the irons over my hair two or three times for maximum effect, but due to the staggering temperatures there was no need for this extra work. This I have not come across in any other irons before, so was chuffed at how little work I had to put in to create straight results. The plates glided over my hair with absolute ease, I felt no pulling or tugging at the roots and my hair was totally straight after one use.
The Izunami irons are also praised for their even heat distribution within the plates, and this was apparent when my hair was left completely kink free after being worked on. Because it only took one glide to straighten each section, I was instantly excited at the idea of my hair not being over worked, subsequently avoiding dried out and split ends.
If you do suffer with particularly weak hair, the irons don’t have to be used to full effect as there is a temperature dial that can be used to lessen the heat. Not only that, but click the dial to over 450F and the straighteners switch to a keratin treatment mode, so not only are you getting irons that straighten and curl, but irons that have hair care treatments too!
I’m pretty sure these irons cater for all needs, even the forgetful, which I found out when I had left them on for half an hour and they began to flash and bleep. In my opinion this sleep mode should be built into every product on the market!
I found this great video review below. Here Ateya looks at the 1 inch and 1.75 inch straighteners for those with lots of really thick hair.. Please do let me what you think of it!

Are These Flat Hair Styling Irons For You?
If you’re somebody that is focused on creating beautifully healthy looking hair, and you’re always the first to try the next big thing, then these irons are a definite investment for you! With exceedingly high temperatures, built in hair treatments and traditional plates allowing salon professional finishes, these irons are ideal for the thinnest to the coarsest of hair.
Good v Bad
The irons do reach incredible temperatures very quickly so after long periods of use I can imagine the hair to weaken, however the built in treatments do allow for this to be rectified. If you are particularly worried about the damage to your hair, further products can be used including serums and protecting sprays, or the iron temperature can be lowered when you are in less of a rush and have more time to spend on your hair. The irons are also wildly recommended for use on all hair types, from thin to afro hair, however not on damp hair. Some people will presume that because of the high temperatures maintained that wet hair can be worked on, however this is not advised, for your hair and iron protection.
Izunami 450 Tourmaline irons are state of the art straighteners, so are very often compared to other brands such as CHI’s. Both irons reach 450F and have hair-protecting qualities, so in that regard will appear quite similar. The Izunami irons however have had much greater positive feedback, and with keratin treatments manually controlled, the user is much more in power of maintaining the hairs natural condition.
