Ceramic--the hair straightener essential
Ceramic has become the big buzz word in hair straightening--quite simply the more the better. The grade and quantity of ceramic coating determines so much about the quality of your straighteners. It affects how well the heat distributes throughout the straightener, keeping it at the temperature selected and even throughout the plate with no hot spots. It creates an easy and effortless glide during straightening with no snagging, flattening your hair cuticles for silky, smooth and shiny results. And it ensures long-life plate wear, protecting the plates against styling product and scratching.
What is Advanced Ceramic?
Advanced Ceramic is a sol-gel based ceramic coating widely used in the industry as a premium ceramic coating. This coating contains nano-ceramic particles which are smaller and more concentrated than in standard ceramic making it smoother providing a better glide through your hair. And Remington's coating experts have optimised sol-gel ceramic and engineered a superior Advanced Ceramic coating which delivers even greater smoothness with no compromise on hardness or wear.
Smooth, hard and long-lasting
Scientific tests have found that Advanced Ceramic outperforms standard ceramic in every department. It is:
10 times more ceramic than a standard ceramic coating, providing a high and even heat.
2 times smoother with a 60 per cent smoother glide. Friction tests show the plates run through the hair more easily with less snagging.
34 per cent harder and so is 3 times more long-lasting, less susceptible to scratching and styling product damage.

Heats quickly up to 230 degrees Celsius
The Remington Sleek and Smooth Hair Straightener helps you stay in control with a variable heat control ranging from 150 to 230 degrees Celsius. With its easy to read digital display and temperature lock, you can decide the heat level that’s right for you. Want to keep it cool and mild? Push the minus button repeatedly to decrease the temperature. Want to turn up the heat? Switch to the plus button and push repeatedly instead until you reach the high maximum of 230 degrees Celsius.
Secure the chosen temperature with the LCD lock which prevents you from accidentally changing the temperature. Or if you want a short, sharp burst of extra heat, hit the turbo boost for an instant shot of power.
Don't know what temperature to choose? If you have:
Coloured, bleached or fine hair--lower heat settings are advisable.
Normal hair--opt for a mid range temperature.
Coarse or thick hair--crank it up with the maximum heat settings.
Long, slim, floating plates for silky strokes
Every dimension of the Sleek and Smooth's plates makes it easy and effortless to use. They measure a long 110 millimetres (mm) in length meaning you can style more of your hair in one stroke, while the plates are slim allowing them to fit neatly in your hand without feeling uncomfortable and chunky. They are also floating to ensure even pressure distribution throughout.
