BaByliss Pro Smooth Straightener Review

BaByliss 3Q Hair Straightener Review

  • BaByliss Pro Smooth Straightener-2

When I first started using heat styling tools on my hair, I wasn’t aware of higher end brands such as GHD, and settled happily for a straightener by BaByliss.

That was a long time ago now – so when I was offered the opportunity to test the Pro Smooth Straightener, I was excited to see how far BaByliss had come since.

The Pro Smooth straightener comes with a whole host of promising features, including;

  • 3 temperature settings-you can choose between 180°C, 200°C, and 235°C; it all just depends on what you think suits your hair type best.
  • Advanced Ceramic heating system-this allows for ultra fast heat-up, and ensures that the plates retain heat throughout the styling process.
  • Floating plates-these ensure that even pressure is applied to the hair, which makes for perfect styling.

The straighteners, as well as being chock-full of hair-beneficial features, are available in a choice of two gorgeous colours- find them in red and pink on Amazon for an amazing price, which will get you;

  • The straightener itself
  • A heat-resistant mat- the safest way to store and transport your straighteners.
  • An information booklet
  • Free delivery

With the promise of smoother, sleeker, and shinier hair, I was dying to give these a go.

My hair has been subjected to colour and heat damage over the years, so it does lack shine on some days. I tested the Pro Smooth Straighteners on one of those days.

The Advanced Ceramics definitely made a difference- the plates glided through my hair effortlessly without snagging, and I found that I could style much bigger sections of hair in one go.

The straighteners lived up to their name, for sure. My hair felt much sleeker and smoother than they would after using other straighteners- none of that straw-like feeling that many people with damaged hair get after styling with heat.

I found that my lovely straight style lasted for the rest of the day, too- it was only towards the night time that I noticed a few kinks forming.

Overall, I would recommend these straighteners to anybody who has damaged hair that can often get a tad unruly.


Comparing the BaByliss Pro Smooth straightener to the GHD IV Styler

The Pro Smooth Straightener reaches a higher heat than the GHD IV Styler does, which means that whatever style you create is bound to last a while longer. However, for those of you with more damaged hair, this could be massively detrimental.

One advantage the Pro Smooth Straighteners have over the GHD styler is the ability to control the temperature, whereas the GHD Styler only operates at one temperature somewhere between 175°C and 185°C.

Temperature aside, both straighteners offer a smooth and professional-looking finish that’ll last the entire day.

 

Styler Temperature (⁰C) Temperature Control Floating Plates
BaByliss Pro Smooth Straightener 180°C -235°C Yes Yes
GHD IV Styler 175ºc – 185ºc No Yes

 

Overall, I would recommend the BaByliss Pro Smooth Straightener as a more adaptable alternative to GHD straighteners. You’ll still get pretty much the same silky and smooth results, but you can change the temperature as you please.

8.5 Total Score
A worthy pair of straighteners

If you are after a reliable pair of irons, then the BaByliss Pro Smooth Straighteners are definitely worth your time. Although the effects of them may wear off somewhat by the night, your hair should remain perfectly straight during the day, giving you the confidence to show off your smooth, straight locks to the world!
