Save these instructions: Operating instructions: this straightening iron is intended for household use. This unit is designed to operate at 120/240 volts AC. Use on alternating current (50/60 hertz) only. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature. Dual voltage: this straightening iron will automatically adjust to the proper voltage. Use an adapter plug with correct configuration prior to use in outlet. Drying system with unique wet-dry design: this wet-dry tourmaline ceramic straightener features our exclusive vent and channel design, allowing for use on dry or damp hair. When used on damp hair, excess water is forced into channels where it can escape as steam. The steam evaporates through the vents in the housing, while the hair's natural moisture is sealed into the cuticle. Caution: steam evaporating through the vents may be hot. During use, avoid touching or blocking the vents and direct drying vents away from your scalp and face. Straightening basics: 1. Plug the straightening iron cord into any household outlet (120/240V). 2. Press the on/off button. Select desired temperature, or push the wet or dry temperature button to choose preset temperatures for specific hair conditions. 3. Red indicator light will blink until selected temperature is reached, then will remain lit. 4. Push the wet or dry button, the red indicator light will stop blinking and remain lit. Green or yellow indicator light will blink until the preset temperature reached, then will remain lit. Press the wet or dry button again, green or yellow light will go off. 5. To turn off the unit, press the on/off button again. Red indicator light will go off. Note: never leave your straightening iron on and unattended. However, should you fail to turn the unit off, it will shut itself off automatically within 60 minutes. Start with a hair section that is 2 in. wide and no more than 1/2 in. thick. Open the iron and place a hair section between the two hot plates, close to the scalp. Trap hair between the plates by firmly squeezing the handles together. While maintaining the tension, slowly pull the unit down along the hair section toward the end. At the end of hair section, release the pressure on the handle and allow the hair section to slide out. Repeat process on additional sections of hair until you achieve the hair style you desire. It may be necessary to repeat process on certain areas, depending on the texture of your hair or how damp it is. Some experience is necessary when learning to use this straightening iron. After using the iron several times, you will easily learn the ideal way to straighten and style your hair. Note: please refer to the temperature setting guide for heat settings, especially if using your iron on damp hair. Styling with the new easy-glide floating tourmaline ceramic-coated plates: the plates of your new straightening iron are designed with a little give, to "float" in your iron. This provides better contact with hair, eliminating gaps for straighter results. The easy-glide tourmaline ceramic surface is the one of the latest -and best-technological advances in hair appliances. The tourmaline ceramic even heat distribution produces the ultimate in healthy, shiny, silky-looking hair. You'll find that hair glides easily over the surface of the plates as you're straightening, and that it is easier to clean styling product residue, etc. off the plates after each use. The tourmaline ceramic surface also helps smooth down flyaways and frizzies. As you smooth your hair, heat is evenly distributed so that the style you create has a salon-perfect, silky-smooth, shiny finish. Hair also glides right through the plates after it's straightened. Tourmaline ceramic technology is a pleasure to work with, makes styling your hair easier and provides professional results. Using instant heat, the 6 wet-dry variable temperature settings & uniform heat recovery system. This straightening iron features Conair's instant heat technology. Within this instant heat technology there are 6 variable wet-dry temperature settings for every type of hair, from the finest to the curliest and most resistant. Use the wet settings for damp hair, and high/dry setting for dry hair. Temperature setting guide: Temp. Control - hair type. Low 1 - delicate, thin, easy-to-straighten hair.
