Flat Iron Experts KQC X-Heat Flat Iron Review

I recently discovered Flat Iron Experts and had the opportunity to test their best selling Flat Iron. Flat Irons are great for all hair types and the KQC X-Heat Flat Iron not only straightens but also flips and curls your hair.

Hands On Review of KQC X-Heat Flat Iron

Th KQC X-Heat Flat Iron Professional 1″ Plate Width retails for $230 but is on sale for only $159.99 at Flat Iron Experts. As a busy mom, the first feature that I was impressed with was that the plates heat up to 410°F in less than 30 seconds! The plates heat evenly too, which is essential in obtaining quick, beautiful styles. This flat iron is easy to use for the style of your choice. You can flatten you hair, flip it, or even curl it.

I have long, thick hair with leftover perm. My hair is naturally straight, poker straight, but even without the leftover perm I never leave the house without curling it or using a flat iron. Naturally, my hair doesn’t look smooth or have the polished that I desire.  I don’t have a lot of time to style my hair each morning as I am also getting my preschoolers ready. I need a product that heats up fast, is easy to use, and provides results that are consistent each time.

The Flat Iron Experts KQC X-Heat Flat Iron meets all of my requirements. Like I said, it heats up quickly and the KQC flat iron is easy to use. I have a head full of thick hair. I just take the flat iron and start from the top of my hair and gently run it down to the ends of my hair. The KQC flat iron slides down my hair smoothly and effortlessly. Be careful when using this product, it works quickly but makes your hair hot! It is important to continue to run the flat iron on your hair or it could cause damage if left in one spot. You can adjust the settings based on your hair type from 140°F to 410°F.  With my thick hair, I set it at around 380°F. Surprisingly, by taking 1-2″ pieces of hair, it only takes 8-10 minutes to straighten and flip under all of my hair. If I’m in a rush, I can even get the majority of my hair styled nicely in about 5 minutes.

With this flat iron, it takes away the frizzy, dry looking hair and turns it into a smooth, shiny head of hair that looks healthy and gets noticed! The X-Heat technology actually softens the hair and seals in cuticles for noticeably shiny hair. I don’t get the static electricity that some products have given me in the past.  Tell me what you think of my after pictures.

    Velecta Paramount Professional Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer – TGRZEN

  49. Julie @ Knitting and Sundries says:

    The T3 Glow Wet or Dry Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron would be great for my hair. My hair is THICK and curly … very very curly .. It takes forever to dry and since I don’t like it curly very much, I straighten it with a flat iron. To minimize damage to my hair, I let it air dry instead of using a blow dryer. The T3 would cut down the time it takes for me to wash and style my hair.
