The John Frieda Tight Curls curling iron (model JFC8) is ideal for any curl lover. I received this product to review and I absolutely love it! This hair styling tool creates soft, beautiful, frizzless curls. The titanium ceramic-coated one-inch barrel has a cool tip to prevent any accidental burning of the ears. This feature has saved me many times trying to created a coif way before my brain has woken up in the morning!
When creating your perfect look, the professional swivel line cord prevents tangling the cord around your body or twisting your hand in impossible ways to get the iron out of your face or in just the right position. The product can rest safely on the counter and won’t roll around or burn the countertop. Although you should never leave a heat tool on and unattended, this John Frieda curling iron will automatically shut off after 60 minutes of being on.
This iron only takes 30 seconds to heat up. The digital temperature display shows which of the eleven high heat levels the iron is set at. The iron can reach temperatures as high as 400° Fahrenheit or 205° Celsius. Although you should always take care when heating your hair, this curling iron will protect your hair from heat with advanced ionic technology that will condition hair and reduce frizz.
The best part about the eleven heat levels is that you can find the perfect fit for your hair type and adjust the level to whatever temperature you need for your ideal wave or curl. For delicate, thin, or easy to curl hair use a low setting like 220°F which the iron starts off at. Average to thick or treated hair should be curled at a medium setting around 310°F. Women with thick or wavy hair should use a medium to high setting like 330°F. For hard to curl hair, use the highest setting between 365°F and 400°F.
The second product I received was John Frieda’s Sleek Finish brush. This product offers you a chance at shiny, smooth, frizz-free hair. It uses deep-shine silicone strips to provide your hair with its best chance at the best hair day yet! The silicone strips are guaranteed to last for the life of the brush.
This hair tool also can transform your hair with Tourmaline (100% crushed gemstones) which releases natural ions to create shine and reduce frizz. This brush is ideal to use while blow drying with vents that allow airflow to reach hair quickly. Even with knotted hair after a sleepless night of tossing and turning in bed, the brush carefully detangles hair without pain.
