How to use hair straighteners

hair straightenersWarning: Using your hair straighteners in a country with a different voltage runs the risk of an electrical fire hazard, blowing a fuse or damage to your hair straighteners. Prior to using your hair straighteners abroad please read the instructions which came with the device to ensure safe operation in that location.

Select from one of the list of locations on this page for full instructions on the most suitable power adapter and how to use your hair straighteners in power outlets found in Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, South America and North America.

Before going abroad check that your hair straighteners can work in the voltage used in the destination:

  • If you already know the voltage used in the country you are visiting then check that your hair straighteners can run on that voltage, or it you have dual voltage hair straighteners (how you can tell if you own dual voltage hair straighteners). You'll only need to bring the correct power adapter (if the plug on your hair straighteners will not fit).

If not then either:

  • Purchase dual voltage travel hair straighteners [1] - you may still need to use the right power adapter however these cheap lightweight accessories are designed specifically for the rigors of travel. There are several different types of power adapter, select your destination from the list of travel destinations below to find out exactly which power adapter you need to bring.
  • Use a power converter (or voltage transformer) - you can then use your existing hair straighteners and other applicances with hair straighteners, however this is considerably heavier and more expensive than dedicated travel hair straighteners. A voltage transformer will change the voltage but won't change the physical shape of the plug on your hair straighteners to fit in the wall outlet used in that location, so check that your voltage transformer comes with an appropriate power adapter for that country otherwise you will need to purchase another power adapter. Please be aware your own personal hair straighteners might not be suitable for travel and you risk potential damage in transit. [2] [AD]

A heat resistant glove

How can I minimise risk using hair straighteners?

  • Skin protection: Wear heat resistant gloves during styling to protect hands from heat.
  • Children's protection: With 10% of children's burns being caused by hair straighteners it is recommended to look for flat iron hair straighteners which include a heat resistant bag to keep the plates closed shut when not in use, making it easier to store out of reach of children.
  • Luggage protection: Placing hair straighteners directly into luggage without allowing them to cool down can risk damage to clothes and heating up combustible or flammable packed items. If your hair straighteners weren't supplied with a heat protective cap then wrap them in a heat resistant mat or use a hot tools travel case to pack them into luggage whilst warm. A travel case will also keep expensive hair straighteners protected from damage during transit.
  • Hair protection: Applying a heat protectant spray prior to using hair straighteners is essential to prevent burning, as well as using the correct technique for your hair type.

Forgetting to turn off hot domestic appliances can also cause fires. This risk can be reduced by using a model of straightener with a timer socket which will turn itself off automatically after a certain length of time, you can also add this feature to any basic straighteners by using a timer socket in a power outlet.    [3] [6] [7] [10] [11] [12] [AD]

  1. Add an automatic timer to any hair straighteners by plugging them into a timer socket then plugging the timer into a power outlet.
  2. Turn on the timer and use the hair straighteners as normal.
  3. After you have finishing using the hair straighteners turn off the power at the outlet.
  4. However if you forget to turn the power outlet off then the timer will automatically switch off the straighteners after a pre-set length of time. Depending on the model of timer this could be 15, 30, 60 or 120 minutes - ideally pick the shortest length of time possible.
  5. For added peace of mind use a power outlet splitter to share the outlet from the timer with both your hair straighteners and a lamp. When the timer is running both the straighteners and the lamp will be turned on, making the lamp a clear indicator that the straighteners are still being heated. When leaving a room it is second nature to ensure all lights are turned off, if the lamp is still on then this acts as a reminder to switch off the straighteners.  [11] [13] [AD]
