A quick look at the Hiliss Pro
This design uses high-quality titanium plates measuring 1 x 3.54 inches. Titanium is a favorite material in modern straightener designs as it has multiple benefits: it’s light yet durable and non-allergic. It allows the plates to heat up rapidly and ensure an even temperature. On contact with your hair, it eliminates static and reduces pulling and snagging of your hair as well as locking in your hair’s natural moisture. Sounding good yet?
What else do I need to know about it?
The Hiliss Pro has a pretty straightforward design – it only heats to one temperature (410 degrees Fahrenheit) and so all you have to do is plug it in and switch it on. It will get hot extremely quickly. The cord is a 79-inch long swivel cord, so it allows you plenty of slack for reaching all areas of your head, even if the plug socket is not located right next to your mirror. The narrow plates allow you, should you wish, to curl up the tips of your hair or add waves as you see fit.
I like the simplicity of the design. You don’t even need to turn your brain on to use this straightener (great for perennial daydreamers like myself) – just switch it on and start straightening your hair! As the plates don’t reach the intense temperatures of some other straighteners, there’s a lower risk of burning. Customers have commented on their satisfaction, even when using the Hiliss Pro with thicker hair.
In some ways, the sheer simplicity of the Hiliss Pro has its own drawbacks. The fact that it only achieves one fixed temperature means that it’s not suitable for everyone – if you have wiry or particularly curly hair you might want to look elsewhere.
This straightener only accepts standard US voltage, so if you’re a regular traveler, this might be an issue for you.
There are also issues regarding safety which have been left unaddressed, for example there is no mechanism for the straightener to turn itself off if you happen to leave it switched on. Likewise, there is no protective cover to keep it stored in, at least while it cools down.
I still like the Hiliss Pro but I am just waiting to hear a bunch of complaints from people who have managed to burn themselves or their furniture or something else. If you’re the type of person who can read and follow directions, this won’t be an issue for you though. The Hiliss Pro is currently rated at 4.5 stars out of a possible 5 – one of the highest levels of satisfaction I’ve seen for a straightener!
