My SO brought me a Sedu Flat Iron about a year and a half ago after I dropped a few not so subtle hints weekly for two months. And as you can tell from my recent update on my transition to natural hair, the Sedu is the business! Below is a picture of my hair after a blow dry and the results after using my flat iron about a month ago. And trust me, it looked much better than the after picture in person. Excuse the funny face, it was late at night when I finished and a sista was tired!
It heats up in less than 30 seconds and has an adjustable temperature that you can set from 240F TO 410F. I consider that to be the best feature because most other flat irons have a set temperature which makes it easier to damage your hair. Personally, I prefer to be in control of the amount of heat I place on my hair, and I’ve found out that my hair does not need the highest temperature to get straight.
The iron comes in two different sizes, 1 inch and 1 1/2 inches. I opted for the 1 inch size because it’s easier for me to get closer to my roots. If your hair is pretty long, you may want to go with the 1 1/2 inch size. Another great detail about the iron is that it’s an ionic ceramic tourmaline flat iron. That means the plates on the Sedu Flat Iron generate 6 times more negative ion than regular ceramic straighteners. You will cut your hair straightening time in half and using it correctly will ensure that your hair does not become damaged over time.
It’s very light and easy to use. And you can create tons of hairstyles with it including straight, curly, waves, and flip hairstyles. I haven’t quite mastered curling my hair with it so I just use my Caruso Steam Rollers afterwards for tight curls instead.
The Sedu is hands down the best hair straightener I’ve ever used. I’ve tried enough cheap flat irons to know that you get what you pay for. Cheap flat irons often heat up unevenly and are barely coated with ceramic. They lead to sub-par results. So don’t worry about the $100 price tag because it will pay for itself over time. Remember, if you want salon results… You have to pay to play! If you don’t have time to waste and need silky, shiny, and swinging (lots of body) hair… cop the Sedu!
