        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.

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

              Back in July i had a horrible hair disaster that left my tresses, fried!!! With the help of coconut oil and regulardeep conditioning treatments my hair is on the mend. I have medium to long, curly hair. The bleaching ruined my curl but it's slowly recovering. I bought this flat iron for a couple of reasons. First, the plates pivot allowing for dual use as flat iron and curling. Second, the obvious benefits that come from infusing the hair shaft with vitamins. Third, it was on sale! Anyhow, this thing is absolutely amazing!!!! I prep my hair with wella primer and spritz with heat protector. I section my hair into 4 parts and work each section into smaller pieces. I believe the iron goes up to 450 degrees but i set it to 330 and it works perfectly. I hold the iron just a moment longer at the root than at the ends to lessen damage. Some reviewers complain about the iron being hot. It's a hot iron. If you hold the part of the iron directly over the plates, it's going to be hot. If you clamp down using the handle then you're fine. There's no reason to grab onto the outer side of the plates. Do so at your own risk. Don't blame the iron. Since i started using it i have received dozens of compliments, daily!! I've been told my hair looks healthier, shinier & thicker. I've had people ask to touch my hair! Lol. I can feel and see the difference. It's softer too. I can't think of anything bad to say about this product. If you're in the market for a flat iron, try this one. Oh and the oil chamber, when filled, lasts about 3 uses, depending on the length of your hair. It comes with a sample. The full size bottle is $25. Totally worth it.

                          Thus far, this flat iron is great, a co-worker mentioned my hair looks shinny and smother as well as straighter than normal. So that was a plus. i used the other Hot Tool flat iron (the slim gold one) and it pulled my hair- this flat iron does not. I have not used the Argon oil it comes with but if it is good without it i am sure it will be great with it. The price is not bad for the product.

                                I was so excited to get this. But really disappointed!! Handle got too hot to even use after a few minutes on 330 degrees. The vapor really only comes out of 1 of the holes, not all of the holes. I had to keep priming the vapor to even get it to come out of one hole. I saw no increase in shine or manageability. I have curly hair and this I had to use on 400 degrees to even get it straight, then handle became too hot to touch. Not impressed. Im taking this back and getting another brand. Maybe its on sale for a reason

                                            I ordered this as a gift for a friend who will be traveling. It arrived on time but the button that dispenses the vapor turns the steam feature off every time it closes.

                                            The online info says there is a store near my friend with them in stock. When she went in to exchange it they said they haven't had any for quit a while.

                                            Customer service not helpful. Whole transaction disappointing.

                                            I bought this iron on Tuesday and I'm in love, it is amazing! I've ir o Ned my hair with a previous iron and after sleeping the first day, I'll wake up with a major wave from the pillow. Today is day 3 and my hair is still pretty slick. I am going to use dry shampoo to remove some of the natural oil buildup in the front of my hair, but the hair is still soft, shinny, and straight. I've had a couple of people compliment me on my hair. The only thing is that I didn't know how much product to put on the canister and I ran out when I was almost done with my whole head. However, with the bit left the iron still made steam. I also use a heat protectant by Kenra, and twice a week the macadamia hair mask. I only use Shea Moisture shampoo and conditioner because they have no chemicals which harm your hair. I would recommend to anyone who doesn't want their hair fried by any other iron to buy this.

                                              I am SO beyond impressed with this product! For starters it was on sale in store for $69.99, what a great surprise when I checked out!I have thick and course hair, I usually have to use my Chi at 450 degrees. I have been using this iron at 380 degrees.The style lasts all day on my curly hair, and the oil doesn't leave my hair feeling greasy like I thought it would. In conclusion, this is a great product that leaves my hair looking & feeling healthy!

                                                  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.

                                                  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.

                                                  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.

                                                Does the vapor come with the iron? Can I buy just the vapor after I run out? Can I use the iron without the vapor?

                                                Will I continue to use other products on my hair while I dry it? Do I use a specific type of hair spray while I use the flatiron?

                                                  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.

                                                  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.
