*I was not paid for this review! I received this product free of charge for my honest opinion.
My natural hair is poofy and curly like a lion's mane. I usually shower at night and then straighten it first thing in the morning. I NEVER leave the house without my hair fixed! I usually use a Chi flat iron since other straighteners never seem to keep my hair straight for long. One thing I worry about with that straightener is that it dries my hair out and damages it too much. I've tried a steam straightener and it didn't even begin to get my hair right, so I was pretty skeptical trying out the Sela Beauty Steam Straightener. Surprisingly, it worked better than my good ol Chi!
The Sela Beauty Ultrasonic Steam Straightener has a revolutionary ultrasonic cool steam function to give added moisture and shine to your hair. It has floating ceramic plates that are much wider than other flat irons, meaning you can do bigger sections at once. The cord swivels 360 degrees to reach any position without tangling. A small water tank is on the top of the straightener, you simply remove it by pushing an unlock lever, fill with tap water, shake and pop back in. You can choose to have the steam on or off, depending on your preference at the time. There's 5 heat settings- 305 ,340, 375, 410 and 445 which you can adjust with +/- buttons on either side of the power button. It has an immediate heat up and stays at a stable temperature the whole time.
The straightener heated up in just a few seconds after turning it on. The steam comes out of a tiny whole at the base of the plates, and it wasn't hot or painful whatsoever. As you can see, my hair was pretty bushy and wavy after just brushing it. I was able to straighten my hair faster than I would with my other flat iron since it handles bigger sections. The steam made a sizzling noise, but I've straightened my hair wet many times, so it wasn't too startling to me. It only took one good pass with the straightener to get my hair straight, yet I ran it through a second time just for good measure. It was very easy to hold and wasn't clunky like other steam straighteners can be.
My hair definitely feels moister and looks shinier than my usual results with a flat iron. It held the straightness very well for the rest of the day and felt a lot softer. My only lament is the water tank seemed too small and I had to refill it halfway through straightening. Other than that, this straightener works awesomely and my hair feels so much more moist and healthy!
