Beauty Test Lab: Does This Pressing Iron Really Deliver Sleek Strands?

Calling all curly girls! We know you (mostly) love your waves and kinks and ringlets. But we also know that sometimes, you just want a sleek, straight mane, or just want to change things up. And on those days, we know how tough it can be to tame your locks. All that relaxing, pressing, flat-ironing, and treatment-ing can be a total time suck. And time is a precious commodity, we know.
And, that's where the Sultra Diva Pressing Iron comes in. The heat tool was made specifically for girls with naturally coarse, thick and unruly hair. The iron has a ridge like texture on the plates called ThermaGuide that is designed to smooth your strands at up to 450 degrees. And, you can use it on hair that has been relaxed.
Those are a lot of fancy promises, so we asked one of our curly haired mavens Candace to put the tool to the test. Hit play to see if it withstood our rigorous testing methods.
Sultra Diva Pressing Iron, $210, available at Sultra.
