This flat iron is intended for household use. Use on Alternating Current (60 hertz) only. This unit is designed to be operated at 120 volts AC. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature. NOTE: Do not use this styling appliance on hair extensions. INSTANT HEAT TECHNOLOGY The iron's unique 30 high temperature settings and Instant Heat technology provide styling versatility for all hair types. If you have fine hair, a low temperature will provide the best results. If you have thick, wavy or hard-tostraighten hair, keep the heat setting on high. You can vary the iron's temperature according to your particular need by selecting the desired temperature setting. Temperature Setting Guide Temp.

It heats up quickly to the temperature you've selected for your hair type. Conair's professional salon standards of engineering provide you with a uniform and improved heat recovery system that maintains the iron at constant temperatures. There is a constant surge of power to ensure that heat is continuously and quickly delivered for optimal styling results, unlike other units, which lose heat during use. This provides consistent styling power so that every strand of your hair is set with the same level of heat and comes out the same way for a perfect finish. Styling has never been easier with the new rose gold ceramic-coated flat iron! Get ready to experience salon results without the salon! STYLING WITH THE NEW EASY-GLIDE, FLOATING ROSE GOLD CERAMIC-COATED PLATE Your new straightening iron has a plate designed with a little give, to "float." This provides better contact with hair, eliminating gaps, for straighter results. The easy-glide rose gold ceramic-coated surface is one of the latest - and best - technological advances in hair appliances. The ceramic, even-heat distribution produces the ultimate in silky, shiny, healthy-looking hair. You'll find that hair glides easily over the surface of the plates as you're straightening, and that it is easier to clean styling product residue, etc., off the plates after each use. The ceramic surface also helps smooth down flyaways and frizzies. As you smooth your hair, heat is evenly distributed so that the style you create has a salon-perfect, silky smooth, shiny finish. Hair also glides right through the plates after it's straightened. A bonus One 'n Only® Argan Oil, Oil Treatment is included. Argan oil protects, revitalizes and nourishes hair. This non-greasy, alcohol-free formula is instantly absorbed, creating brilliant shine and conditioned, silky hair. One 'n Only® Argan Oil can be purchased online at www.stylesource.com.
