The Flat Iron District

Sultra The Bombshell Flat Iron

Sultra is a high quality brand that offers a variety of hair tools. Among them is this Bombshell Curl, Wave & Straight iron. Like most of their products, it exudes a simplistic and sleek design. This hair iron comes in black with the “S” logo at the tip and a beautiful floral design printed on the non-slip rubber hand pad. 

With its size and width, it is very easy to store or to travel with. It is a compact unit that you can bring with you anywhere in the world because it is dual voltage. This means you can use it in virtually any country you wish to go to. 

Advanced Care Ceramic Technology

There’s a reason why most people will advise you not to use hair styling tools too much. That is because they can potentially damage the hair and dry it out. When using tools like hair irons, some may observe that areas of their hair gets burned. This occures due to the uneven heating of the pads. 

Unlike those hair irons, the Bombshell Curl, Wave & Straight iron ensures even and the consistent heating of the pads through their Advanced Care Ceramic Technology. With this technology, the hair is protected and mended while it is styled.

The T3 Cura Hair Dryer reviewed here is another example of a high-end hair care product that doesn’t over-heat hair.

One Pass Styling

Sultra The Bombshell Curl, Wave, and Straight Iron

The plates are made out of ceramic, which ensures even heating of the pads. The ceramic plate is partnered with a high-quality heating system that heats up the plates quickly so it can style the hair in as little as one pass. 

When the plates are always at their ideal or set temperature, it becomes more reliable in producing results. You don’t have to go over the same section of hair to style it. With just one pass, you can straighten or curl the section. 

Most customers highly recommend this product because of how efficient it is at styling the hair. It quickly gets the job done and does a good job at it too. Some even said that the amount of time they spend on styling their hair is cut in half when this is used.

This is very commendable especially for customers who need to quickly style their hair in the morning.

Who wouldn’t want to spend less time styling their hair? Even if you are not in a rush, being able to style it quickly and efficiently saves you both time and energy!

3-In-1 Hair Styler

Sultra The Bombshell Ceramic Flat Iron

Some of us have our go-to hairstyle. It may be simply straightening the hair, or perhaps a little wave. However, for a very special day or just to spruce things up, you might want a change in hairstyle.

But that can mean needing another hair styling tool. 

With the Sultra The Bombshell Curl, Wave & Straight Iron, you can do different styles with just a single hair tool. First and foremost, it makes a great hair iron to straighten your hair. Whether you have curly hair or even if you just want to tame your straight hair, you can use this iron to have smooth and silky straight hair. 

If you prefer lovely curls or those sexy beach waves, you can get them with this hair iron. The 1-inch plates, which are also flexible, make it possible to use it as a curling tool. It can create large waves or smaller curls depending on your preference. 

Multiple Temperature Settings

Another great thing about the Sultra Hair Iron is the multiple temperature setting. Higher temperatures are great for styling thicker hair because it can take the heat while it is styled successfully.

However, too high temperatures can burn thinner hair. Some use these high temperatures for unconventional tasks like killing lice.

This hair iron offers 3 optimal temperatures so you can set it depending on the hair it is used on. This is nearly as flexible as the FHI Heat Platform Tourmaline Flat Irons we reviewed.

The general recommendations are:

  • For Fine Hair: 370°F
  • For Normal Hair: 380°F
  • For Thicker Hair: 400°F

The lowest temperature setting on this is still pretty high — too high for use with coconut oil, so don’t be afraid to start at the lowest setting.

The heat options make the Bombshell aka Seductress a great hair tool for the salon where professionals constantly encounter customers with different hair. Of course, many also buy this for their own personal use at home.

Those with thinner hair love it because they don’t need to worry about burning their hair because of the temperature setting. However, even if it works in 3 different temperature settings, it is still best to use a product that protects your hair from the heat of styling tools. 

Whether you are curling or straightening your hair, you can expect to have shiny and soft hair after you style it with the Sultra The Bombshell Iron.

This is because of the infrared rays that lock in moisture to produce healthy-looking hair. It also generates ions to help prevent frizz.

The result is smooth, shiny and healthy-looking hair.

Aside from the three working temperatures, this hair iron also comes with an auto shut-off features. This prevents the plates from overheating when not in use. It also helps prevent start a fire in case you forgot to turn it off.

However, it is always best to unplug any hair styling tool when not in use. Besides, this heats up easily so you don’t need to plug it and let it preheat for a long period of time before you can use it. 

Easy To Use

Whether you are curling or straightening your hair, this iron makes it very easy to use. The first thing you need to do is to section your hair. Take a part of your sectioned hair and either straighten or curl it. The hand pad on this hair iron makes it very easy and comfortable to hold. 

The hair iron also has a swivel cord that rotates freely so you can position or turn the iron without fighting the power cord. This also helps prevent you from tugging on the power cord to prevent accidentally removing it from being plugged-in. 

With the optimal heat maintained, you can make sure that each pass you do on your hair straighten or curls it efficiently. This makes it easier to style the hair because you don’t have to repeat the steps over and over again just to get a section of your hair to maintain the curl or straightness.

Each of the ceramic plates has a high gloss coating. This prevents any tugging or snagging that can damage the hair strands.

Many customers also love that their hair passes smoothly between the pads every time they use it. Tagging and snagging don’t only damage the hair, it can also be uncomfortable and painful. 

Easy To Clean

Sultra The Bombshell Controls

Gunk can buildup on your hair iron is inevitable especially if you use it often. That gunk may be partly due to the heat protectant you place on your hair plus the other products you use on your hair. It can also be a mixture of dirt and dust that got stuck because of the oils on your hair.

Nevertheless, cleaning is important to make sure your iron is efficiently working. 

To clean this iron, you first need to cool it off and unplug it. You can use a damp paper towel with a professional cleaning solution, spray-on oven cleaner, nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol to remove the rough buildup. 

Complimentary Iron Pad

This hair iron also comes with a free iron pad, which is very useful while styling. When you need to section your hair or to take a part of your hair to style, you can place the iron on top of the pad. This will prevent you from burning your countertops.

The pad is made to withstand the heat of the hair iron. You can also use it to place your hair iron after use to cool it down.

Don’t store your iron while it is still hot and allow it to properly cool down first. 

Worthy Luxury

A lot of reviewers find this hair tool expensive. Compared to other hair tools that are meant to do the same job, it is a bit expensive. However, you will really notice the difference between using this and other hair irons. 

One customer really loved this but she had to leave her at home while attending to some family matters. As she used another known brand’s hot iron in the meantime, she really felt her hair dry and rough.

This experience made her an even bigger believer at the capabilities of the Sultra The Bombshell Curl, Wave & Straight Iron. 

This iron makes up for the expensive price by making the hair soft and smooth after use. It is also capable of doing 3 functions, namely: straighten, curl, or create waves. The hair feels luxurious after the styling session.  

Hard to argue with that!

The Bottom Line

To wrap things up, we highly recommend purchasing the Sultra The Bombshell Curl, Wave & Straight Iron simply because the results are amazing. Whether you use it to curl or straighten your hair, it will end up looking fabulous. 

Also, this hair tool makes it much easier and quicker to style the hair. That is a great advantage especially for all of us who go through the morning rush. Although it is more expensive than many other hair irons, it outperforms them solidly. That’s why why we think it is worth splurging on.
