Nicky Clarke Hair Therapy Straighteners | Review

Hello again,

I decided to use a Boots gift voucher I got for Christmas to buy myself some new hair straighteners. I didn’t want to get expensive ones because I do already have really good ones. Conveniently, these Nicky Clarke ones were reduced from £39.99 to £19.99 in Boots’ post-Christmas sale.

I’m really glad I found some for that price because I can now justify having straighteners in Cornwall and in London. I got these ones because they’re small and compact so they won’t take up much room in my suitcase for Budapest and won’t break my luggage weight limit.

For the price, I’m so impressed with how well they work!

They heat up really quickly when you turn them on and also cool down quickly when you’ve turned them off. This is so useful if you’re in a rush to go out and you need to take them with you. It took mine about 15 minutes to cool down completely after I switched them off.

The heat setting comes in the form of a dial, where you can choose fine, medium, high and max. Fine to medium heat is for shorter or thinner hair and high to maximum heat is for longer or thicker hair. I used medium for mine and it was definitely hot enough – my hair is thin but still quite long. It only took me 20 minutes to straighten my hair perfectly, although someone else probably could have done it a lot quicker because I took boredom breaks.

This might seem stupid but another thing I like about these straighteners is that they actually have an on/off switch. My other hair straighteners don’t have a switch so I have to turn them off by the plug, which I always forget to do. It’s definitely the little things in life…

I don’t use hairspray but my hair still stayed in tact all day which is definitely a good sign. I feel like I don’t have to use these straighteners a lot to get the straightness that I want, which is obviously better for the condition of my hair. I wash my hair every other day so even when I’m on ‘second day hair’, my hair is still really straight and I only have to quickly go over it to get it how I like it.

  1. Seems like this is a great product, and worked well for you. I admit I don’t spend a lot of time on my hair. I probably blow dry it 5x year. The rest of the time it gets put up because it gets in the way during classes.

  2. I haven’t straigtened my hair in forever! I’m all about curling it right now! This straightener seems really nice, though

  3. Can’t believe it was reduced by so much in Boots, how come I never see all these bloody good deals haha! Damn! I’ve never tried anything from Nicky Clarke I don’t think although I’m tempted by their hair salon in the Mailbox here in Brum. It looks so plush and lovely there! X

  4. I have very straight hair and have not ever tried to straighten it more. I do try to curl my hair, though. My favorite way is to simply braid it when it’s wet at night — the next morning, it’s all wavy and full of body. My curling iron gets used occasionally, but the curls never stay for long.

  5. I’ve been looking for a new straightener! This looks great. I don’t style my hair often but I like to use a skinny straightener like this when I do.

  6. I have curly hair and occasionally use my chi for a “change of pace”, but I’d love to look into this one, as many of my friends ask for recommendations of a more affordable option.
