Hair that's just been done in a salon is surprisingly silky and soft.
It's dry all the way through, yet still feels moisturized. This is achieved through professional techniques that perfectly monitor water, heat and pressure levels. The technology behind the ReFa BEAUTECH CURL IRON replicates those techniques for professional-looking results. By providing unprecedented control over water, heat and pressure levels, ReFa's proprietary Carbon Layer Plates give you beautiful, long-lasting curls with a silky soft, healthy-looking finish.
Control over water, heat and pressure levels is the most important element in styling hair.
Because curling irons can take a long time to heat the hair, they tend to dry it out in the process.
By carefully adjusting the heat, speed and pressure of the plates,
professional Japanese hairstylists are able to create beautiful, long-lasting curls without damaging the hair.
ReFa's proprietary Carbon Layer Plates use cutting-edge technology to reproduce the techniques of professional Japanese hairstylists.
The three-layer structure comprised of high-density carbon, a heater and a low-rebound coating controls water, heat and pressure levels with expert precision to create long-lasting curls with a silky soft, healthy-looking finish.
Applying heat to wet or damp hair will create a water vapor explosion1, which results in damage to the cuticles.
The structure of ReFa's Carbon Layer Plates allows for the gradual transmission of heat, which prevents water vapor explosions and subsequent damage to the hair.

The high-density carbon base enables the plates to heat the hair evenly, allowing for the creation of beautiful, perfectly-defined curls.
The Carbon Layer Plates prevent excessive evaporation, which helps maintain the hair's moisture levels. In the process, they help the hair retain its shape for prolonged curl definition.

1 The ReFa BEAUTECH CURL IRON was used with and without Carbon Layer Plates. In each case, it was used at the 180℃ setting.
A section of hair was wrapped around the iron one and a half times, heated for 10 seconds, and then released. Pictures of each case were taken immediately afterwards. The hair was left at a temperature of 23±1℃ and a humidity of 65±5％ for six hours. Pictures were then taken of each case.
A built-in heat sensor monitors the temperature of the iron's rod in order to raise it rapidly. This allows it to heat the hair evenly for beautiful, quick curls.
