RUSK is a leading brand in the hair styling industry, their products being used by many women at home, while also being preferred by numerous professional hair salons. The RUSK Engineering CTC Technology Professional Straight Iron is designed not only for straightening the hair, but also for creating curls or cowlicks, and for eliminating frizz. This flat iron is recommended for all types of hair.
RUSK CTC Professional Flat Iron features in both 1″ and 1.25″ plates. The plates are ceramic, infused with titanium and they feature the Sol-Gel technology. Many women who have used it, reviewed the product as excellent due to its ability to leave the hair extra smooth and silky. This happens due to the fact that the far infrared heat can penetrate the hair better than other heating technologies. This flat iron features temperature controls as well as a temperature memory function. It heats up very fast and the temperature can be adjusted between 300° and 450° Fahrenheit. Due to its ceramic infused plates, it heats up faster than plain ceramic plates and it also retains the heat better. It takes about 40 seconds for the flat iron to reach its maximum temperature. The iron features a display and two controls: the temperature adjust controls and the memory button.
Ease of Use
The RUSK CTC Professional Straight Iron is very easy to use. For straightening the hair, start at the crown of the head, separate the hair into one-inch sections and grab each section of hair between the plates. Place the iron as close to the scalp as possible without actually touching the scalp skin. Slide the iron down, towards the tips of the hair. Repeat this procedure which each strand of hair until you achieve the desired results. We like the fact that this flat iron features a temperature memory. With the simple touch of a button, it will heat up to the temperature that you usually use when straightening your hair. If there is one feature that would have made this product perfect, that would have been an automatic shut-off feature. Such a feature is very useful, especially since most women use the flat iron daily, for quick fixes.
