XTAVA Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener Review

When it comes to my hair I usually like to straighten my hair while I blow dry and since my hair is pretty thick, afterwards I tend to look like a Wookiee so it's kind of a must need to tame it with straighteners. As my hair is so thick, my straighteners usually don't last me too long due to the simple fact that I use them everyday, so I was super excited to try the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener. Wow! It is a time saver that's for sure! It heats up in less than 90 secs and you can select the temperature that is right for your hair, which is great for someone like me who has thick and wavy hair. The Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener gets so much hotter than my regular straighteners, meaning that I save loads of time getting ready in the mornings. It takes me less than 10 minutes giving me plenty of time to have a cup of tea before the school run. In addition to this, the Xtava Pr0-Satin incorporates an infrared technology which means that it's a little kinder to your hair as it heats up a strand hair from the inside out, even on the hottest temperatures. It is arguably the best flat iron for thick hair, so let's go into the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straightener just a little more...

The Xtava Pro Satin Flat straighteners arrived in a beautiful box, which was a lot bigger than I thought it would be, but I soon realised why when I got around to opening the box. They are quite large in size with the plates measuring around 5cm, a few years back I had a similar set from Toni&Guy and I was completely devastated when they broke, so I was excited to try these.  As I opened the zipped bag I soon realised that they came with a 360 degree swivel cord with an extra long cable, which can easily reach all the parts of your room without affecting the whole straightening routine or to see what mischief my toddler is up to in her room. I couldn't believe it took less than 90 seconds for straighteners to heat up that incorporates an infrared technology meaning great things for those who use heat. Infrared heat differs from traditional heat in that it operates using longer wavelengths which will enable a deeper penetration, heating the strands from the inside out. 

At just £29.99, you can't really go wrong. You definitely won't break the bank in order to get some gorgeous sleek and smooth locks. I must admit at first I wasn't expecting great things as I am a 'GHD' kind of gal, but I have been proven wrong with the Xtava Pro-Satin Infrared Straighteners. The heat on these irons is pretty impressive, and the fact that they can heat up in less than 90 secs and on different heat settings makes it that more more appealing, as it caters to all types of a hair. When I set to straighten the mane there was absolutely no pulling, and the plates glided through my thick, wavy hair in 10 minutes, 10 MINUTES!!! Overall, for the price I honestly don’t think you can go wrong, and it is great to see a product that finally works on thick hair as it does on normal or fine hair. I have also seen that Xtava has other products, the curling wand is the next one on my list!!


- Easy to use.
- Heat ups in less than 90 seconds.
- Wide heating plates (5cm).
- Great performance, straightens thick hair in 10 minutes.
- The 360 degree swivel cord and a long cable length.
- Pro Satin and infra red to protect the hair even at high temperatures.
- Storage case is great for storing the straighteners when not in use.


- Be careful not to touch the plates, they get extremely hot and it really hurts!
- I didn't come across Xtava sooner.
