Babyliss Pro flat irons – what makes them special


Babyliss Pro has got a lot of history in the fashion and hair care industry on its own, so many people don’t know that the company is actually a subsidiary division of Conair. What else could boost our confidence in the quality of a product than the self-speaking decades of continually improving the technology and client approach. On the other hand, some brands are known for lowering the bar on their products quality once they’ve reached a high rank in sales, so here are a few reasons why you should always trust the Babyliss Pro series.

 

ua1Once you’ve decided to buy a new flat iron for thick hair for example, you have probably spent some time on the internet, looking for what’s new and what are the best features of a straightener. Amongst them will always be the ability of the appliance to keep your hair safe while it’s doing its job. Most Babyliss Pro flat irons are produced using EP technology, that is similar to the one used in forging jewelry: electroplating ensures a coating of micrometric metal particles that reduce friction and let the plates warm up evenly to avoid any burning points.

 

Another great feature of the Babyliss Pro straighteners is the Advanced Heat-Management system that allows the plates to become instantly hot and, because of the electronic control of the temperature, it will constantly maintain the heat with an accuracy of half of degree.

 

ua2When it comes to most hair care brands, their products seem to follow a certain niche of clients or a certain set of technologies that cover only some of the market needs. With Babyliss Pro, however, you have a large and extremely varied series of flat irons, that can help straighten the thin and frisky to the coarse hair, all of them providing the highest level of protection. From long-plated straighteners for professional use, to small, 1-inch plated irons that you can use at home, this brand has set its mind to be of help to anyone.

 

Lastly, we can’t overlook the ergonomic and lightweight design of the flat irons produced by this brand. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at some of the customer reviews and see for yourself the excitement of women’s trying a Babyliss Pro flat iron for the first time.

The best Revlon blow dryers


There is no such thing as a perfect blow dryer, mostly because different types of hair require different types of care. However, Revlon, as an experienced personal care products manufacturer who’s been in the business for over seven decades, knows that the key to finding it is constantly assessing the consumer needs and improving their products accordingly.

Revlon currently has three collections of blow dryers on the market, each designed for a certain level of styling. Amongst them, the Pro collection renders a perfect combination of top quality materials, durability and an impressive number of features designed to improve your experience and give your hair the best care possible. There are two models in this collection that need to be pointed out as they reach a high standard.

 

Pro Collection Salon AC Motor Styler

 

ua1This pink dream can trick the eye with its sweet, candy-like aspect, but beneath the layers of paint lies a great combination between tourmaline and ceramic coating that will protect your hair against overheating while getting rid of all the dampness. A stronger, faster airflow lets you limit your hairstyling time, while you chose between three levels of heat and two speed levels. Seal in the curls and bangs with the cool shot that will inhibit the heat that’s been building up, and get greater volume with the help of the volumizing diffuser attachment. What’s more, this blow dryer features a smoothing concentrator attachment, so you’re covered, whatever your hairstyle choice of the day is. The Styler offers not only great performance, but it also comes in a easy to use, compact design, that will turn it into your best travel buddy.

 

Pro Collection Salon One-Step Hair-Dryer and Volumizer

 

ua2This hair tool by Revlon is the best in a series designed to combine the action of a blow dryer and styling brush. While keeping the ceramic coating and ionic technology, the manufacturer has yet to improve it with tourmaline, but instead featured it with an oval brush, perfect for shaping even the most stubborn ends.

The brush has nylon pins with ball tips that are designed to spread the heat evenly while forming the curls and waves you’ve been getting only at the salon. Multiple heat settings let you adapt the tool to the specific needs of your hair, while its professional design make it easy for you to store it, carry it, and keep it handy at all times.

The best GPS manufacturers


 

 

When buying a GPS unit, the first question that comes to mind is which brand offers the best and safest technology. Accuracy and versatility also weigh in on such a decision, and with the growing number of manufacturers and insane rise of the use of smartphones and tablets as substitutes, the decision becomes more and more difficult. Certainly, we are inclined to look for brands that have years of experience in the field of automotive navigation systems, but the real measurement system of a product is the satisfaction it provides for the buyer.

Looking at the customer reviews everywhere, you can easily spot Garmin as one of the most appreciated GPS manufacturers, and here are a few reasons why. First of all, Garmin has been on a continuous race towards improving the features of its products even since 1998, when it first released the StreetPilot, and ua5finishing with the versatile Garmin Nuvi series, that completely raised the bar for GPS units feature combinations. The major advantages that a Garmin unit offers are its incredible ease of use, its friendly interface and the details that it offers the driver so that not only does he/she know the road, but also the traffic, relevant info about the surroundings, and possible obstructions on the road. High-resolution screen, touch -screen, wi-fi, text-to-speech capability, route-planning, voice guidance, these are just a few of the features Garmin has included in the design of its GPS units, and it all culminates with its large number of models and the long lifespan of the units.

Another beloved brand is TomTom, who covers from the automotive GPS market to fitness and outdoor gear. As an European company, one might expect it to have less impact on the American market, but the quality of its products have overpowered any reluctance one might have had and now, this Dutch manufacturer is the top competitor for Garmin. With a much more information displayed at once, a much more accurate HD real-time traffic service, an ad-free interface, and all the connectivity features that will let you access the internet and read your text messages on the GPS screen.

Naturally, the features themselves don’t make them “the best”, but the decades of time invested in perfecting the technology, and most of all, the incredible amount of confidence that the American driver has given these two brands make us believe you won’t be safer with anything else.
