These Remington S5525 Pro Straight Extra Wide Plate Straighteners [fj1] are found to be one of the best hair straighteners for wavy hair, due to its wide plates and integrated features needed for those more difficult hair types we all struggle with.

With the Remington, PRO-Ceramic Extra, you can achieve polished, sleek and perfectly straight hair effortlessly at home. Developed with wavy hair in mind, this Straightener features longer length extra-wide plates that will have your hair tamed and under control in a matter of minutes.

What features do these straighteners hold?

The combination of all these fabulous features it allows you to achieve beautiful and professional looking results in a shorter space of time. The advanced ceramic ultra-coating furthermore gives these straighteners 2 x smoother glide and makes them 3 x longer lasting compares to our standard straighteners, proving that quality has not been comprised.

The Remington pro also has an automatic shut off system that is the straightener is unused for 60 minutes or more then it will automatically shut down to make sure it can cause no damage to the material it is on.  

Even worse cause a fire which is what we fear when leaving the house and worrying if we have eft out styling tools on.

The plates can lock together when not in use which is a simple feature that I’d like to see on more brands as it’s just so useful. The heat resistant pouch is standard and always useful and the swivel cord works well with a good length.

What is the temperature ?

With temperature settings ranging from 150°C to a remarkable 230°C, plus a speedy 15 seconds heat up, the Remington extra wide is sure to straighten even the most untamed hair. They straighten flawlessly on one or two runs through and the result survives a full day of walking about and then sleeping.

​These straighteners were recommended by my hairdresser. I have thick, coarse, wavy hair so need something that can cope with it. These are fantastic!! Every time I use them I'm amazed by how good they are. My daughter has always had ghd straighteners before but has replaced them with some of these. Extra wide plates, quick heat up, decent length cable, constant and controllable temperature. What else can I say I think these are amazing and would highly recommend to anyone.



Currently on amazon the price of the Remington extra wide plates straightener is £49.99 but very often this product is reduced right down to as low as half price which is just an absolute bargain and would be worth every penny. Therefore in my opinion if you were going to purchase these straighteners it is well worth buying them when they have deals on so you don’t end up paying the full price.

Our verdict

In conclusion, this advanced ceramic plates are perfect for giving you the sleek, frizz free hair you are searching for. With a high heat of 230 and a variable temperature control this will style your wavy, thick hair with ease. With such a reasonable price bracket and a 5 year warrantee it is most defiantly worth the investment.
