Featured Review (and a GIVEAWAY too!): InfraShine Ceramic 1" Flat Iron


I love reviewing products. Even better, I love reviewing fantastic products. This is a great gig. Lucky can't begin to describe how I feel having had the opportunity to review today's feature product- InfraShine Ceramic 1" Flat Iron.
As you know, I have tested several flat irons for the feature reviews. Some make great travel irons; some are better for hair that is already healthy prior to use. Some are simply "plug in and go" irons with no temperature adjustment and others have LCD displays and the ability to choose the temperature which is best for your hair. The InfraShine Ceramic Flat Iron is an iron that I find myself using over and over again, and each time I do, I love it even more.

From the moment they were first introduced into the market, InfraShine flat irons established a new standard for performance and quality. Designed to meet the demands of professional stylists, these precision tools are built to last. They heat up instantly, generating negative ions that produce even, uniform, and controlled heat along the surface of the iron so you can straighten hair in a single pass and then curl, flip, or press it into virtually any shape or style. They are available in three sizes for maximum versatility.
When I first set out to review hair tools and products, I had never heard of InfraShine. Excited to try their products, I agreed to review the flat iron and a blow dryer (coming in a later review). I was a little concerned about the 1" iron's ability to work with my massive head of unruly, semi-wavy, thick hair. I needn't have worried at all.

This flat iron works the best of all that I have worked with thus far when used for curling my hair. I find that not only does it create big, beautiful curls, but it also is the only iron so far that has "staying power" (without hair spray). Hours after I use the InfraShine Ceramic Flat Iron, my curls still look great!

Another feature I love about the InfraShine Ceramic Flat Iron is its ability to retain heat. The iron heats up fast (with a temperature range between 170 and 400 degrees), and once it's hot, it stays that way. I did not have to make more than one pass on each section of my hair. Because of that, I am able to iron my hair in an impressive 10 minutes with this baby! I love it!

Worth mentioning is the iron's extra long cord. I appreciate this feature as I am often multi-tasking in the morning, and need to iron my hair plugged in the bathroom) and sip gulp coffee in the bedroom).

InfraShine Flat Iron Features:


  • Heats up in 5 seconds to 5 temperature settings from 170-400 degrees F

  • On/Off Switch light pulsates when heat setting is reached

  • Even distribution of heat with no cold spots

  • Extra long 9 ft heavy duty UL approved cord with flexible swivel

  • 120 volts, 35-75 watts & 60 Hz
I give the InfraShine Ceramic Flat Iron my highest recommendation! Ask your salon or local beauty supply about InfraShine. You can also visit their website for more information an where to purchase their amazing products!
