Nicky Clarke Colour Radiance 230 Hair StraightenersRating:
I was hesitant about whether these straighteners were at the level of a high end hair product, especially on my initial reaction from the packaging.
However, on removing the straighteners from the box, I was pleasantly surprised at the texture, design and quality of them. The slim-line matt design with easy grip handles is complimented by a 360 degree tangle free swivel cord, which may come as a relief, because if any of you have the problem I normally have, the cord always gets in a mess from numerous times of tangling.
These Nicky Clarke Colour Radiance Illuminated straighteners come with high performance ceramic plates that claim to protect your hair colour and prevent it from fading thanks to strong ions that are realised, conditioning your hair as you straighten, thus providing you with a sleek and shiny finish.
They reach a whooping 230c which, for me, is brilliant as I have very curly hair and takes a lot of heat to get it straight and more importantly, keep it straight. An added feature worth mentioning is the variable heat control so you can have maximum control over the temperature you want to use. So for those of you with more delicate hair, you are safe in the knowledge you will be doing minimal damage from the heat.
The illuminated dial is a superb little addition that flashes blue and green whilst reaching it’s set temperature and turns to a solid red light once its ready, so you know when to start using it.
- heat up quickly
- give a great shine
- variable heat control
- handle locking funtion
- packaging lets the product down
These straighteners have some fantastic features and I can honestly say that I was extremely “sold” on this product. I never thought I’s say that I would would happily trade in my GHD’s for another brand but I would for a pair of these Nicky Clarke straighteners!
