Hey guys! I have a new review for you, and it’s one I actually feel pretty strongly about. I used to have one of those drugstore flat irons that are really bad for your hair…it looked more like a toy than a flat iron, and it burned my hair pretty badly. And the smell? The worst. So I decided to invest in some worthwhile flat irons: The Sedu Revolution from Folica.
I absolutely love these flat irons! I have two, the 1″ and the 1.5,” and I am so happy to have them both. This iron has a max voltage of 20, and the plates are Tourmaline and Ceramic. It is ionic, with a beveled edge and it heats up from 170° to 450°. When you buy from an authorized retailer, the Sedu Revolution comes complete with a 2-year warranty. It has a 9′, ergonomic swivel cord and the body of the flat iron has a gorgeous matte black finish that’s no-slip. The packaging is so beautiful, you won’t want to get rid of it.
As someone who is really particular about hair health—hello hair journey—I need a flat iron with adjustable temperature, and the Sedu Revolution has amazing range. It can go as low as 180 and as high as 450. While I never use either extreme, it’s nice to know I have the option. There is an indicator light that tells you whether the iron is heated or not—the red light means it is heating up, the blue light means it is cooling down, and when the indicator light flashes red and blue the flat iron is ready!
This iron just rocks! It’s so great I had to get a second one, and they aren’t cheap. My sister actually got it for me, and I was ever so grateful. It leaves my hair very shiny, and straight with one pass. I have never had to go more than one pass with this, and my hair is pretty difficult to get smooth. Most importantly, I never feel like these scorch my hair or leave it with a flat iron smell. They do not make my hair dry or brittle, and for that these flat irons are definitely holy grail status.
Does it curl beautifully? Yes! And with ease. The 1″ is great from my bangs and hard to reach areas, while the 1.5″ allows me to quickly style and straighten the length of my hair.
Now the importance of this oversight could be pretty crucial depending, but for me it was not a big deal: it does not auto-shutdown when left on. This means if you forget to turn it off or unplug it, then you will meet your iron just as you left it—on and hot. This is not a big problem for me because I really never forget to unplug mine, but the one time that I did I was surprised to see it had not powered off by itself. For many people I can foresee this being a huge issue. I hope they correct this in the future.
Performance-wise, this was worth every cent. I enjoy using it and whenever I need a new iron, I will look no further than the Sedu Revolution. While the technology of this iron may make it less damaging, it is important to remember that any and all heat is bad for your hair when used in excess! When you do use heat, please remember to use a heat protectant. I personally enjoy Aphogee’s Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer right before I flat iron. It gives my chemically treated hair the protein and other beneficial ingredients my hair needs in order to thrive.
Also, the Sedu Revolution Diamond just came out so I am sure there will be some sort of price decrease for the Sedu Revolution!
