For salon-perfect hair with less time and effort, style with Illustra Beauty's Humidity Detecting Hair Styling Iron. This hair-styling tool is used to style and straighten dry, damp, and wet, towel-dried hair for slick, shiny, lustrous hair that's full of movement.

How do I use it: Press and hold the on/off button until the unit turns on. Set the desired temperature, or choose to use the Moisture Sensor function, primarily for damp, wet, towel-dried hair. Unplug the unit and allow to thoroughly cool before storing.

Designed to identify wet and drier areas of your hair, the Moisture Sensor allows the styling of damp or wet, towel-dried hair without excessive heat and rapid water loss which could damage hair. Once you've finished styling with the Moisture Sensor function and hair becomes dry, you can return to normal styling function. Do not style wet, towel-dried hair or damp hair under the normal function.

Illustra Beauty Humidity Detecting Hair Styling Iron is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK I have shoulder length hair was excited to get this and try it out. I used small sections of towel dried hair and it took SEVERAL passes and my hair was still damp it took forever to go through my hair, I can dry my hair in less time and style as well with a dryer and iron than it took me to halfway drying my hair with this product. also my locking button WOULD NOT WORK, the packaging was not great. the sleeve was torn the cord was wrapped horribly and the instruction manual was all bent up. looks like someone else had this item and returned it. then shipped out again. NO THANKS. I am glad this works for some, but it definitely didn't work for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pulls hair I really liked this iron in the beginning, but the more I used it, the more it pulls the hair. It used to glide through the hair so nice, but after around 3mnths of using it. The plates just seem to have lost their slip. I tried cleaning them, but that didn't work. Wish I could send it back, but I think I've had it to long now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but still needs some work I was really excited about purchasing this product. To be able to skip the blow drying step just sounded to good to be true. I had to give this a try. After using it twice now, I have a wishlist and/or recommendations for future models. It does dry your hair. However, it will take a few passes to get it dry. My hair tends to hold on to water so it takes four to five passes to get my hair dry. It would be great if they could improve upon the moisture sensor technology to allow for two pass drying if at all possible. Even with the four passes my hair is still a little frizzy at the ends. When I first started using it, the moisture sensor temp went up to 390 and now it is down to 370. Maybe its my error and I need to figure out how to get it back up to 390. That might help with getting my hair to dry faster without the frizz. If it is not my error, then it would be great if we are able to adjust the moisture sensor temp. The locking feature I feel needs to be improved. It slides forward and back too easily. You should hear it lock and unlock into place to make sure that it is not locked when you are using it. It also would be great if the moisture sensor beeped when you turned it off or on. It is too easy to turn off the moisture sensor by accident. Lastly, I am surprised that this did not come with a travel pouch. It's not cool to the touch like another product sold on QVC, so you really need something to sit this on while your working on your hair and after you have turned it off. Ideally some sort of holster that could double as a travel pouch. I am on the fence about whether I should return it or not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not as advertised I ordered this item and tried it out. It didn't work. It didnt do anything. It was suppose to have a temperature indicator light on top. Well there wasn't one. The was suppose to be a indicator light on the top showing when the humidity sensor was on. Well there was not one of those either. There isn't even an indicator light to show you if the iron was off or on. It looked like a cheaper version of what was advertised. Everything I have bought from qvc to date has been great. I am very disappointed with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ..great price and functions I've decided to take a break from the salon for a bit and try caring for my hair at home. I decided to upgrade my flat iron, but I didn't really want to invest in a high-priced professional iron. I ordered this last week and received it yesterday. It seems to fit the bill pretty well. All the functions and indicator lights work as demonstrated in the video, so I'm a bit puzzled by some reviewers' comments. I really appreciate the actual temp display rather than the low- to-high settings used on some other irons, and I think the damp hair setting will be useful from time to time. I also love the color and finish (got the turquoise). I used the iron last night to quickly smooth and curl my hair and it turned out well. I'm sure it will get even better with practice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from exterior gets extremly hot this item works well on dry hair not so much on damp hair. so i would recommend if you use on dry hair just be careful it stays hot way after you unplug so keep on metal or ceramic surface after you turn it off

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love I have not had a bad hair day since I received this in the mail. My hair is color treated, thick and wavy and will definitelyfrizz when humid. After using the Illustra styling iron, I can go all day and my hair will not frizz. I prefer to blow dry my hair first rather than use this on wet hair, but my results are awesome!!!
