I love my medium-length waves with a few soft curls here and there. But it sometimes becomes extremely boring to sport the same hairstyles over and over again. I had been feeling the same for the last few months, when I suddenly had the idea of trying my hand at a hair straightener.
I chose Vega over other reputed brands, as I’m an amateur in at-home hair straightening and I needed something easier to handle. And I picked this model (no. VHSH-01), because I simply loved its nice pink color.
Read on below to know more about my thoughts on this hair styling tool.

How to Use:
Let the appliance heat up for 60 to 120 seconds. Then, switch it OFF.
Hold it by the handle and start styling your hair.
Brush your hair and separate it into sections about 2 inches wide and place one section at a time between the clamping plates, while avoiding direct contact with them. Do not touch the scalp as the plates are hot and can damage it.
Hold plates firmly closed with hair section in between, sliding the tool down and off the section of hair. Make sure the heat is applied evenly throughout the section by using a controlled movement as you make your way from the top to bottom. Depending on your hair thickness, hold the hair between the clamping plates from anywhere between 2-5 seconds, but do not use for long than 5 seconds, as the heat can cause hair damage.
Repeat for all the hair sections.
Let the device cool down before putting it away.

Vega Flair Flat Hair Straightener comes in a white-colored long, compact, cardboard box with vital information and images of the product printed on it. The content of the box includes the straightener, the user manual, and the warranty card. Upon opening the box, there is a folded piece of cardboard, creating two sections inside. One has the body of the straightener, while the other contains the cord as well as the user manual and warranty card.
I must say, it is a very sleek and ‘sexy’ hair straightener. The metal body is glossy pink in color with the logo and temperature caution printed on it in black. The black ceramic plates inside have an ON/OFF switch and a LED indicator to help carry out the process efficiently. The 360-degree swivel cord is quite long enough to serve its purpose well. The plates of the straightener are taped together and surrounded by some bubble wrap. The entire body of the straightener is secured with another larger bubble wrap. The cord is clamped with a small piece of wire. The overall packaging is very nice and the product has a great appearance.
My Take on Vega Flair VHSH-01 Flat Hair Straightener:
The hair straightener has a really elegant pair of tongs that impressed me even before I started using it. The plates are not very wide, so you can’t attempt to straighten a large section of hair at a time. Each plate is around 0.5 inch in width but is strong enough to hold even very rough ends of locks.
One feature of this device that I like very much is its quick heating capacity. It heats up in as less as 30 seconds and I don’t need to wait before starting the procedure. The ceramic plates can retain the heat quite well too. I can straighten 2 to 3 sections of hair by heating up the device once. However, it comes with only one heat setting system, which means you can’t adjust its temperature. So, it might not be possible to always to protect your hair from damaging, especially when you only need touch-ups and not a complete straightening.
The smart design and light weight of the straightener makes it very easy and convenient to use. The 360-degree swivel cord helps me use the device anywhere around my head and that too, without tangling.
I follow the exact procedure described in the user manual and I’ve not experienced any issues till date. It takes around 15 minutes to straighten my medium-length hair and, honestly speaking, the result is lovely! My hair becomes perfectly straight and silky smooth whenever I use it. The ceramic plates also add a little shine to my manes.
The device cools down quickly as well. However, it is very important to power it ON and OFF carefully, because there is only one setting, as mentioned before. Remember, we cannot adjust the temperature as per our requirements.
