Bio Ionic Straightening Iron - Review and Giveaway


My hair has a mind of its own. Seriously. Sometimes I wonder where it thinks it's going and why it can't seem to go in the same direction.

A straightening iron has become my new best friend. Even on days where my hair seems out of control, a few minutes with a hot iron and it is once again tamed into submission.



I recently had the opportunity to try the Nano Cermaic "OnePass" Straightening iron from Bio Ionic. This straightening iron allows me to straighten my hair in half the time of other, more traditional, flat irons. The unique Silicone Speed Strips increase shine and decrease the number of passes required to get the smooth, straight look I'm after.

The iron also includes these great features:
  • Instant heat, up to 400°F ; instant recovery
  • Nano-Ionic™ Mineral fused to cushion plates
  • High levels of negative ions; Far infrared energy for silky smooth conditioned hair
  • Bio Ceramic 5 Second heaters
  • Multi-level heat controller
  • 9 ft swivel cord
It did not take long for the iron to heat up, which is a definite plus for a busy mom. It retained the heat well. Initially, I wasn't sure if the silicone strips were going to make a difference, but I was impressed by how easily I was able to get my hair to cooperate. The long cord is also a definite plus!

Overall, I was very pleased with the OnePass from Bio Ionic. It definitely delivered on it's promise of silky, smooth hair. I got compliments on my hair after using the product. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars!

Bio Ionic OnePass Nano Ceramic Straightening Iron 1.5"
One lucky reader will have the opportunity to win a flat iron from Bio Ionic ($142 ARV)! Bio Ionic also offers a fantastic line of hair dryers and curling irons. The nano-ionic technology helps produce smooth, conditioned hair.
