Ladies!! Are you looking for a slim, sleek, good quality flat iron hair straightener?! Look no further. I recently got my hands on an xtava ADAGIO Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Flat Iron Hair Straightener. To describe it, GORGEOUS. It is soft to the touch, but has a nice firm grip. It is very sleek, and is definitely great for travel. Especially because it came with its own thermal traveling bad! This absolutely fascinated me! (Stay at home Mom/Wife, it doesn't take much. LOL)
Shortly after ordering, I received an email from the company with a lot of great and useful information about their product. I am going to enclose it below, THESE ARE NOT MY WORDS. THESE ARE STRAIGHT FROM XTAVA.

We wanted to take the opportunity to offer you a few tips related to the flat iron you bought:
Drying your hair before you get started is one of the most important aspects of using your flat iron. If you have time let you hair dry on its own, if not, give it a quick blow dry. Either way make sure it's 100% dry before you start using your straightener.
Use the correct temperature for your hair type. For fine or damaged hair avoid going over 300 degrees. Normal hair styles best at 300-380 degrees and for coarse or curly hair, 350-400 degrees should work best.
Start by separating your hair into sections and start from the bottom layers, working your way up. Slide the straightener slowly from your roots to the ends.
Your flat iron is quite a versatile tool, it not only straightens your hair but can also be used to create waves. Simply braid some sections and run the flat iron over the braids, as you undo them the wavy texture will unravel.
I tried braiding my hair, and then running a flat iron over the braids to TRY and make some kind of life, or waves in my hair. It worked wonders!! What a great idea!!
