When you’ve just stepped out of a salon, your hair is perfectly styled ‒ yet surprisingly silky and soft. While the outer layer of your hair follicles are completely dry, the inside of each follicle remains hydrated and healthy thanks to professional hairstyling techniques that involve using the eyes and hands to perfectly monitor the heat from the straight iron and the moisture levels of the hair.
The ReFa BEAUTECH STRAIGHT IRON uses cutting-edge technology to replicate these same professional hairstyling techniques. Our unique Carbon Layer Plates straighten hair gently and effectively by reducing damage caused by water, heat and pressure for a silky soft, healthy-looking finish that looks like you just stepped out of a salon.
Controlling water, heat and pressure is key to preventing hair follicle damage.
If hair is wet or even a little damp, applying heat will create a water vapor explosion1 ‒ which causes severe damage to the cuticles.
Hair is further damaged by repeatedly clamping down on it with too much pressure at a high temperature.
When professional hairstylists use a straight iron, they control the temperature and tension of the iron
with the utmost care to prevent any damage to the hair.
ReFa's unique Carbon Layer Plates replicate the techniques of professional hairstylists with breakthrough technology to substantially reduce hair damage. The three-layer structure of the high-density carbon, heater and low-rebound coating prevents damage from water, heat and pressure while styling the hair beautifully.
When water vapor from wet hair explodes on contact with hot ironing plates, the hair cuticles are damaged in the process. The three-layer structure of the Carbon Layer Plates generates a steady, mild heat that prevents water vapor explosions and their damage to the hair.

1 Used on untreated hair (hair that has never been colored, permed or otherwise treated) after it was sprayed with water. The ReFa BEAUTECH STRAIGHT IRON was used with and without Carbon Layer Plates. In each case, it was used at the 180ºC setting 50 times (equivalent to about 10 days of use). After use, a cross-section of the hair was studied and analyzed with a scanning electron microscope.
The surface of the Carbon Layer Plates is covered with a low-rebound coating that gently grips the hair without causing any damage.
2 Used on untreated hair (hair that has never been colored, permed or otherwise treated). The ReFa BEAUTECH STRAIGHT IRON was used with and without Carbon Layer Plates. In each case, it was used at the 180ºC setting 300 times (equivalent to about one month of use). After use, a cross-section of the hair was studied and analyzed with a scanning electron microscope.
The base of the Carbon Layer Plates is made of high-density carbon, which heats the hair in an even,
controlled manner for effective straightening with a beautiful finish.
Note: Effectiveness may differ depending on hair type and the environment in which the product is used. The straightening effects of an iron are temporary, and last only until the hair is washed.
The ReFa BEAUTECH STRAIGHT IRON not only straightens hair, but also curls hair beautifully.
Enjoy a variety of hairstyles while protecting your hair from heat, water and pressure damage.
Slide the iron down to the tips of the hair in a slow, steady motion.
Twist the hair by gently clasping it in the iron and rotating it.
