Ceramic--the hair straightener essential

Ceramic has become the big buzz word in hair straightening--quite simply the more the better. The grade and quantity of ceramic coating determines so much about the quality of your straighteners. It affects how well the heat distributes throughout the straightener, keeping it at the temperature selected and even throughout the plate with no hot spots. It creates an easy and effortless glide during straightening with no snagging, flattening your hair cuticles for silky, smooth and shiny results. And it ensures long-life plate wear, protecting the plates against styling product and scratching.

What is Advanced Ceramic?

Advanced Ceramic is a sol-gel based ceramic coating widely used in the industry as a premium ceramic coating. This coating contains nano-ceramic particles which are smaller and more concentrated than in standard ceramic making it smoother providing a better glide through your hair. And Remington's coating experts have optimised sol-gel ceramic and engineered a superior Advanced Ceramic coating which delivers even greater smoothness with no compromise on hardness or wear.

Smooth, hard and long-lasting

Scientific tests have found that Advanced Ceramic outperforms standard ceramic in every department. It is:

  • 10 times more ceramic than a standard ceramic coating, providing a high and even heat.
  • 2 times smoother with a 60 per cent smoother glide. Friction tests show the plates run through the hair more easily with less snagging.
  • 34 per cent harder and so is 3 times more long-lasting, less susceptible to scratching and styling product damage.
  • The Genius comes with a storage pouch/ mat, comb and sectioning clips
    The whole kit to help you straighten your hair with style
    The Genius Straightener is designed with extra-long plates

    The Remington Genius Straightener comes with a 5 year guarantee
    The Genius Hair Straightener has worldwide voltage
    Heats up to 230 degrees Celsius

    The Remington Genius hair straightener helps you stay in control with a variable heat control ranging from 130 to 230 degrees Celsius. With its easy to read digital display and temperature lock, you can decide the heat level that’s right for you. Want to keep it cool and mild? Push the minus button repeatedly to decrease the temperature. Want to turn up the heat? Switch to the plus button and push repeatedly instead until you reach the high maximum of 230 degrees Celsius.

    Secure the chosen temperature with the LCD lock which prevents you from accidentally changing the temperature. Or if you want a short, sharp burst of extra heat, hit the turbo boost for an instant shot of power.

    Don't know what temperature to choose? If you have:

  • Coloured, bleached or fine hair--lower heat settings are advisable.
  • Normal hair--opt for a mid range temperature.
  • Coarse or thick hair--crank it up with the maximum heat settings.
  • Fast to hot up

    These high heats kick in as soon as you switch the straightener on, being ready to use in only 15 seconds. So whether you're in a mad morning rush or quickly transforming your look from day to night, just switch on, count to 15 and get styling.

    Long, slim, floating plates for silky strokes

    Every dimension of the Genius's plates makes it easy and effortless to use. They measure a long 110 millimetres (mm) in length meaning you can style more of your hair in one stroke, while the straightener's plates are slim allowing them to fit neatly in your hand without feeling uncomfortable and chunky. They are also floating to ensure even pressure distribution throughout.

    Easy and safe to use

    Ever leave the house and worry that you accidentally forgot to switch off your straighteners? Breathe a sigh of relief and never worry again thanks to the Genius Straightener's auto shut-off function which takes effect after 60 minutes. It also boasts a 3 metre (m) swivel cord for manoeuvrability and longer reach.

    Chic and stylish

    The Remington Genius straightener looks good even when not in use. Its sleek design brings together a luxurious brushed gold metallic contrasted with high-gloss black to add a splash of style to your grooming routine.

    The Genius straightener has worldwide voltage, so there's no need to skimp on your style routine wherever you are in the world. And it comes with a heat-proof matt black zip-lock storage pouch making it easy to carry around. This pouch also includes a professional comb and four sectioning clips so you've got everything you need for some serious styling. It comes with a five year guarantee.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Having been using some Braun Satinliners for the best part of a year and doing reasonably well with them, I thought I'd give these Remington Geniuses a go to see if they were an improvement.

    The design has a nice premium feel to it, and is good to hold. They are smaller in size than the Brauns but the plates themselves have a similar length. The closing action is better as there is no chance of catching anything that could unwittingly cause the plates not to come together properly, as I have found with the Brauns, so that's good.

    There is also a handly locking mechanism at the base of the device which allows it to lock it to a closed position for more compact storage.

    I do have a couple of issues with this device however...

    It claims to be able to heat up in 15 seconds, but I didn't find this to be totally accurate all the time. On first use it took more like 30 seconds. Don't get me wrong, I find even 30 seconds to be perfectly acceptable, but the fact that they make this speedy claim and for it to not seem true to me just seems a bit poor.

    The other thing is that the exterior shell of the plates seems to transmit a lot of the heat through. No straighteners are immune to this but I felt that the amount coming through was noticable worse than my old Satinliners, so you may wish to bear this in mind.

    As for how good they actually straighten hair?... Well, they do actually seem a fair bit better than the Brauns. They glide a lot better, the closing action is neater and they seem to require less effort. The $64,000 dollar question though, is "Are they as good as GHDs?". To that, my answer is "Probably not". The salon I go to on occasion always use GHDs and they swear by them, and they always seem to do a better job than I could ever do.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great 22 Aug 2009
    By Tea Tango VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    This really is some quality stuff. It feels well built, and I really do like the little LCD display (it's light blue in colour).
    It says it heats up in 15 seconds, but honestly in 10 seconds the plates are boiling hot!
    The area around it however is cool, not even warm! So it's safe to touch, and the plates are recessed into the two tongs, so you won't accidentally touch the plates from the side and burn your fingers.

    The plates are also quite long, compared to some other products that are about half the price. So it should save some time.
    There are only three buttons. One to power the device (you have to press and hold for it to switch on) and temperature up and down buttons. Which allow you to choose temperatures between 130 and 200 degrees.

    There is also the lock switch near the power cord. When locked the tongs are closed together, so there is no gap.
    Also the power cord can rotate (on the outside), which is useful when you're always rotating and changing positions. Yeah it's a small thing, but shows that they spent some time developing the device, instead of putting something rubbish out there with snazzy marketing.

    The zip bag that I got was a bit different from the one pictured. Mine was missing the slit to put all the little plastic bits. Other than that its the same.

    It says in the book it has an auto power off feature, but all the girls on the household have been taught the art of switching irons, hairdryers, hair strengtheners off when not in use :) so haven't really tested this feature.

    It's definitely worth the money, yes it's a bit more expensive than the average straighteners, but it looks greats, feels greats and is easy to use!

    It's also considerable lighter compared to other straighteners that I've reviewed!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfied.. 17 Dec 2009
    By pan sp
    ok, so I've has 2 other remington straighteners in the past and I was very satisfied with them. My hair is curly and thick, but the results were very good. I just got the genius one as a gift and when i tried it i seriously wanted to through it out from the window. First of all when you press it into your hair u don;t really feel it so u can't actually tell if it's straightening your hair. Then, it doesn't really do a good work. In the manual it sais that u only have to go through each section of hair 2 times and it will be alright but i need atleast 4 times which is very annoying. I needed about 50 mins to finish and have the result i had with my previous straighteners when before i only needed 20 mins. The only pros are that it has the display and the fact that u can lock the temperature. In overall i wouldn't consider buying it if i knew that the results would be like this..

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sleek and shiny hair! 24 Aug 2009
    By Wynne Kelly TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    These Remington Hair Straighteners are brilliant. They have lots of good features such as the lock function which maintains the desired temperature, the turbo boost function and the automatic safety shut off. As they are multivoltage they can be used abroad.

    They are easy to use and give good results. I especially liked the long (3 metre) swivel cord. Although quite expensive they seem to be very good quality and come in a very substantial heat-proof travel pack.

    An excellent buy.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, but watch your ears! 16 Dec 2010
    By Miss VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    These are light, attractive straighteners that work well on thick and thin hair. Results are impressive, and although the straighteners probably do not produce quite the flawless outcome that GHDs do, these are currently selling at around a third of the price of GHDs, so if you're looking for a cheaper alternative then you could definitely do worse than these.

    A few issues: they don't heat up quite as quickly as they claim to, they take a while to cool down, and the outside gets very hot when using. This means potential pain when working around the ears, neck, back of the head etc. Even so, I'd say these are worth purchasing if you don't want to shell out over a hundred quid on the pricier brands.
