I often go through hair phases. I have been known to do extreme things with it. I do however, love my hair. I try my best to keep it looking as healthy as possible. Even though you will find me coloring and using heat on it. All of these things can be very damaging to hair. It is important to choose the right products and appliances for your hair. They are not all created equal. Most will cause more damage over time. That is why I was excited to try out the KQC X-Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron (1" inch).

KQC X-Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron have been rated one of the Best Flat Iron on the market and preferred by top hair stylists around the world. KQC flat irons has been featured in countless magazines and press including Salon Magazine, Fashion Magazine, In Style, Canadian Hairdressers, BEAT 94.5, Vancouver Sun, Vancouver Province and more.

With KQC X-Heat you can straighten, flip, curl and tame frizzy or rebellious hair for long-lasting results. Equipped with an ultra powerful Korean Ceramic Heaters that provides precise and stable temperature. Heating up to 410 F in less than 30 seconds. You just cant go wrong with the KQC X-HEAT recommended with 100% confidence by Flat Iron Experts.
Before and After from the back. I do believe that it took my roughly 15 minutes. I did also section and clip off my hair into four sections. 
The Professional X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron has been rated one of the best Flat Iron’s on the market, and it’s preferred by some of the top hair stylists in the world.  You can find the Professional X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron is several magazines such as:
  • Salon Magazine
  • Fashion Magazine
  • Style
  • BEAT 94.5
I allowed my hair to air dry over night. Only because I had just dyed it purple and didn't want to over damage my hair any more than I usually do. So I waited. Usually my hair has more volume when I blow dry. But It is still pretty thick as you can see in the first "before" picture below. 

My hair has a wavy like texture. That is often frizzy or hard to handle. Since it is rather think, styling can be a hassle. I have to section it off quite a bit to achieve my desired look. That takes time. I am happy that I ca rely on KQC to leave my hair smooth as silk with no frizz. What is more, it heats up in about 30 seconds and takes me little as 10-15 minutes to finish. The Professional X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron distributes heat on the whole surface evenly, retains heat more efficiently, and gets rid of damaging hot spots.  That’s the magic behind ceramic technology.  The KQC X-Heat uses ceramic, which emits a natural source of ions and far infrared heat which in fact helps your hair, preserves more moisture within the hair shaft, helps to get rid of frizz and create the smooth shiny cool we all love.  It also damages your hair cuticle while styling less.
It doesn’t heat up as high as my other Irons have. But I still feel it does above and beyond what They ever could do.  

Flat Iron Experts also sent me the KQC Thermal Shine Spray and KQC Iron Holder.  Since I was looking for some sort of stand previously, I was more than thrilled. The iron holder works great to keep my new iron off of the surface I am using. The holder has suction cups at the bottom that cling securely when it's placed on smooth, flat surfaces. It’s also very sturdy and does not move or fall over.

I normally use the Iron at 350 on my hair. But can vary depending on sections used.

I have owned several Flat Iron in my life. All of which have had a short lived life span. Since they are mostly store brand, or cheaper models. That is always the risk you pose when purchasing the cheaper version. The KQC X-Heat is retailed at over $250 in hair salons. Actually, my hair dresser uses this brand on my hair. I hadn’t noticed this before. But as soon as I opened the box and tried it out. I was in total shock. I have a quality salon hair straightener now! Wow! It works fabulously on my unruly hair. I do use product in my hair when wet, and dry.

KQC Flat Irons features Tourmaline-Ceramic plates that produce less damage causing friction then old metal ones. Tourmaline has been proven to generate negative ions which helps tame frizz and preserve moisture in hair. Plus it retains the color in color treated hair, leaving it incredibly vibrant with a healthy glow.

Tourmaline / Ceramic Technology: KQC X-Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Straightener's distributes heat across the entire surface evenly, retains heat more efficiently, and eliminates damaging hot spots. Ceramic emits a natural source of negative ions and far infrared heat that helps your hair

The fact that it is extremely easy to use is a winner to me. But if you want a Flat Iron that will live a long fulfilled life, KQC is the way to go. Flat Iron Experts have prices that can’t be beat!

  1. I won a ceramic flat iron a few months ago and love it! Huge difference in a quality flat iron as opposed to cheap, standard ones

  2. I have just been using my curling iron to smooth my hair! This product looks great! Makes me want to buy it! Thanks for sharing!

    1. I don't even own a curling iron. But what I do know is that this thing can curl like a dream!

  3. I would love one of those. Your hair looks so sleek and shiny.

  4. Wow, great review! I love seeing lengthy reviews - it shows that you really care about the product and company! You were right about doing wild things with your hair - but the purple looks great! I have been looking for a dependable straightener for my hair. I am putting this one on my "final choices" list!

    1. Thank you! It isn't the first crazy color I have done. But I love it. It looks even better straightened.

  5. Wow, great review! I love seeing lengthy reviews - it shows that you really care about the product and company! You were right about doing wild things with your hair - but the purple looks great! I have been looking for a dependable straightener for my hair. I am putting this one on my "final choices" list!

  6. I am on the market for a new hair straightner. I have heard such good things about this one....I may just end up getting me one!

  7. Your hair is awesome! I love the before and after, it definitely worked very well. I hadn't heard of this brand before.

    1. It is amazing! I'm sure you heard of the chi? The KQC is far more advanced. I love it. And thank you! ;-)

  8. You hair looks great! I could use a flat iron like that!

  9. Great results! I have really straight hair but have been considering getting a flat iron as it kinks really easily (if I pull it back). I also have a lot of fly aways that this might help with.

  10. now i gotta get some hair to grow so i can use one of these things....

  11. I love my Chi Original, but I'd be open to trying another brand down the road. I definitely think that if you're going to use any kind of heat styler on your hair, quality DOES matter.
