We love our trusty flat iron when we need to make sure our locks behave. The only downside? Flat irons can be damaging, which — ironically — can leave us with even more frizz. Bummer, dude.
Which is why we're such suckers for any styling iron that promises less damage. The latest iron that claims to impart less stress on our poor, fried locks? The Ferrum straightening iron by Ladies & Gents, which has one heated ceramic plate and one fabric plate that stays cool. The combination of the two are intended to provide exceptional smoothing power with way less harm to hair. Does the iron perform as claimed? Watch as beauty assistant Gabrielle takes it for a spin in our Beauty Test Lab!
Ferrum Professional Styler by Ladies & Gents, $189, available at Ferrumiron.com.
