GET FAT HAIR NOT FLAT HAIR WITH THE NEW FERRUM PROFESSIONAL STYLER
FINALLY A FLAT IRON THAT WON’T FRY AND DRY


The concept behind a styling tool is to make hair look smooth and sleek. Most flat irons do exactly what the name says: They make your hair flat!  Just because women want to tame their frizzies or make curly hair straight does not mean they want hair that is limp and lacking fullness. What’s more, many who already have straight hair want the option of curls or soft waves. Traditional flat irons can’t do that. Some women find themselves going through a three step process of drying their hair with a traditional blower, using a flat iron to straighten and then a curling iron to achieve body. Who has that kind of time to spend on their hair? The inventors behind Ferrum understand these hair woes and provide a state-of-the art styling tool that delivers PHAT hair.

What Makes Ferrum Different? The answer lies in the technology of the VSS System which is a combination of a non-heated padded fabric element and a tourmaline coated ceramic plate. The real distinction of this tool is the fabric padded side. The fabric is a combination of lightweight, anti-static polymers that allows the hair to "breathe" while straightening. In combination with the pad, the styling result most closely resembles blow-drying; which tends to give hair exponentially more volume than flat-ironing. Since the fabric padded side is non-heated, the Ferrum styler doesn't burn all the moisture out of the root of the hair giving it a much more vibrant, "bouncy" look. A flatiron will fry and dry out your hair between two solid hot plates. The Ferrum styler will allow your hair to rest on glide on a soft surface, allowing hair to breathe and retain more of its  natural moisture, shine and volume.Think of a flatiron as "frying" and drying out your hair between two solid hot plates. Allowing your hair to breathe and rest on a softer surface allows for a much healthier styling experience.

When flatirons were first created they were clearly an inferior alternative to going to a salon for a professional blow out. Women turned to flat irons to try to mimic the sleek look provided by a professional stylist. Most who have used them would say that their hair lacks the same “oomph” as a blow out. In the quest to simply get their hair straight,  the consumer has come to accept flat and damaged hair as an inevitable part of using a flatiron. With the Ferrum Professional Styler, women do not have to merely make the choice between frizzy and flat. Although Ferrum is not to be used to make wet hair dry, once hair is dry the tool can be used to achieve a pin straight look without losing volume. It can also curl the hair or give it gentle waves. For those who want or need to use a heated styling tool daily, the best news is that the Ferrum will not break the hair.


To Maximize Ferrum’s results hair stylist and inventor Barbara Abbasi has some styling tips:
  • Make sure your hair is completely dry. Two things change the composition of hair- heat and moisture. If your hair is wet it will be much less manageable.
  • Always start straightening with the pad facing out (i.e. the pad should be "under" your hair)
  • Begin styling from the root. The benefit of our product is that you can get very close to the root without burning your scalp.
  • When styling use a slow and steady motion from root to tip
  • Volume can be controlled with the angle at which you style. For increased volume turn rotate your hand so your wrist is closer to your head.
  • If you want a sleeker, less voluminous look, finish by doing an extra stroke with the pad facing inwards.
  • The Ferrum styler is composed of unique materials. Allow ample time for the styler to heat up. The results will be worth it.

Protect Your Style
  • To keep your hair styled perfectly for the whole day or night, use a lightweight finishing spray to keep your hair in place.
  • Take good care of your flat iron! It's a great piece of equipment and not exactly cheap to replace, so simply storing it in a heat proof pouch - or using one for safe travel - will help you protect your iron and keep using it for a long, long time. You can also set your iron down on this heat proof surface during styling to protect counters from possible heat damage.
  • Clean your flat iron from time to time - frequently if you use leave in conditioners or heat serums, every week or so if not. Build-up on the plates can cause your hair to snag and shorten the life of the plates themselves. Heat your iron and then wipe it down with a non-abrasive cloth - use a flat iron cleaner if you use leave-in treatments frequently, but avoid chemical solvents not meant for cleaning your iron.
