Comments about Hot Tools Cool Tools Conditioning 1 1/4 inch Vapor Flat Iron:

I needed a new flatiron because my old one did not seem to be heating evenly. My hair is a little damaged and dry from straightening and coloring. I liked the idea of the nourishing vapor and the fact that the product description stated you can straighten your hair at a lower temp because of the vapor. I read the reviews and bought it. I am happy with the product so far. It is a little heavier that my old flatiron, but I can get used to that. I am hoping it really does help the condition of my hair. I would recommend.

      This flat iron is a great idea. However, I must have old wiring in my house because when I use it, the lights in my bathroom dim up and down while the iron is on. Unfortunately, this gives me a headache each time I use it :(

          My hair is bleached and not in the best shape. I've been using this flat iron for 2 weeks now and I love it! Normaly I have to set the temp anywhere from 380-450. With the flat iron I Have the temp set at 300 and it works great. Well worth the money!

          AMAZING PRODUCT!!! I never do this... Because normally I never care enough to write a review! Honestly though if you have thick pain in the butt hair this is the straightener for you! It uses steam to straighten it with a special oil. NEVER have I been able to wash, dry and straighten my hair all within the hour. While having it be so soft afterwards! Usually I wait a night then straigten it to allow my hair to get some oils back in it, but with this I don't have too. Also completely cut down on my time by almost half!

            I am African American, and I have searched high and low and in between for a flat iron that ACTUALLY WORKS!!! I do blow dry my hair first using my big sex blow out spray and that's it! I normally put my flat irons on 450 (heat damage) now I put it on 280-300! My hair is straighter than ever! It looks healthy and is now, thanks to this product! And it's easy to use! I wish I could show pictures from before and after.., a world of difference!!!

              The straigtener heats up quick and straightens hair with a single pass. Also uses 100 degrees less heat than your straightener at home. It has the option of steaming which speeds up the process for a silky smooth sleek look while conditioning your hair at the same time. I have thick hair and was able to sucessfully straighten in as little as 10-15 minutes.

              My hair has never been so smooth, the Argon oil that infuses into your hair does not leave your hair feeling greasy or heavy. You don't have to use such high heat to achieve the smoothness you are looking for.

                  A:

                  The Argan Vapor product is used to close the cuticle and to provide the moisture for the straightener to work as a vapor iron; as it is not a thermal protectant, you should continue to use a thermal protectant product as you should with any flat iron.

Hot Tools Conditioning Vapor Flat Iron has a few extra features including automatic shut-off after 2 hours and dual voltage capability for easy travel. Agave Vapor Iron features 3 heat settings up to 420 F, while Hot Tools Conditioning Vapor Iron features an adjustable temperature dial up to 450 F.

                  A:

                  Yes, this flat iron is great for those with chemically-treated, dry hair, since it has a built-in conditioning treatment. Argan Vapor Treatment is absorbed into hair instantly, penetrating to the core of the hair shaft, adding flexibility and renewing even over-processed hair from drying out, while at the same time, smoothing the cuticle for silky, conditioned, healthy-looking styles.

                1 answer

                • Staff Expert

                  A:

                  African American hair usually needs higher heats. Since this iron gets to 450 degrees at the highest temperature, it works very effectively to straighten coarse hair. In fact, one should test a lower temperature as this product is called Cool Tools for a reason. You should be able to use it at about 30 to 90 degrees less than you would a normal flat iron. This is because the Argan Vapor Treatment that you have to use with this product works the same way that adding steam in a clothes iron works. It means that you're able to straighten thick or coarse hair much better with this iron compared to other professional straighteners.

                  A:

                  The Argan Vapor Treatment that you must use with this product comes out as a form of steam, but it will not frizz the hair. In fact you'll notice that you can use this iron at a lower temperature than you would normally use a traditional flat iron. That, combined with the silky smooth texture your hair will feel like after straightening with the Argan Vapor Treatment, will ensure that you're doing less damage to your hair and with better results than ordinary flat irons.

                  A:

                  Other products can be applied directly to your hair while styling, but do not fill the reservoir with any product other than the Hot Tools Argan Vapor Treatment to avoid damaging your iron. We suggest applying hair spray as your last step to set your style after using Hot Tools Cool Tools Conditioning Vapor Flat Iron.

                  Yes. The Argan Vapor product is used to close the cuticle and to provide the moisture for the straightener to work as a vapor iron; as it is not a thermal protectant, you should continue to use a thermal protectant product as you should with any flat iron.

                  A:

                  It must be used with the Hot Tools Argan Vapor Treatment to achieve the conditioning effects and smooth-as-silk straightening that this product is known for. The use of any other product including water (as some municipalities have hard water deposits) could clog this iron, and the use of any other product voids the warranty.

                  To turn the conditioning steam on, slide the switch located next to the temperature dial to the steam position.

                  To fill the reservoir:
                  Fill the reservoir ONLY when the iron is cool. NEVER remove the reservoir when the iron is hot.

                  Remove the reservoir by sliding the reservoir compartment lock to the unlock position, and pull the reservoir off the iron at the same time. Turn the reservoir over so that the rubber fill cap is facing up. Gently pull back on the rubber fill cap, uncovering only the large fill hole. Do not remove the entire rubber capping piece from the reservoir. (The smaller hole is a vent hole.)

                  Unscrew the cap on the Cool Tools Argan Vapor Treatment provided with the iron and fill the reservoir. Once the reservoir is filled, firmly push the rubber cap back into place to avoid leakage. Make sure the plugs are completely seated to avoid leaks during use. Turn the reservoir over so that the rubber fill cap is facing down. Notice that both the reservoir and the conditioning iron have a white arrow on them. When insterting the reservoir back onto the iron, the two arrows should match up. Insert the front end of the reservoir, with the white arrow first. Then press down the back end until you hear it snap securely into place.

                  This iron serves as a styling tool and conditioning hair treatment tool in one! It generates conditioning vapor that is absorbed into hair instantly, penetrating to the core of the hair shaft, adding flexibility and renewing even over-processed hair from drying out, while at the same time, smoothing the cuticle for silky, conditioned, healthy-looking styles.
