The Philips HP8372 MoistureProtect Straightener is a hair straightener designed to simultaneously style and protect your hair. It features a MoistureProtect sensor that reads the moisture level of the hair 30 times per second, signalling the straightener to adjust its temperature accordingly and preserve natural hydration. Alternatively, it also has three temperature settings (150, 175 and 200 degrees) that can be manually controlled, if preferred. The tool features floating ceramic plates that adjust when too much pressure is applied, helping reduce hair breakage. The ergonomic, curved shape allows for creating tighter, more defined curls, as well as straight strands.
The triallers loved the straightener’s on-trend white and rose gold colour. Many were impressed with its variable temperature setting, and appreciated being able to tailor the heat level to their own strands. While some said they needed to swipe each hair section twice rather than just once, the majority found the tool easy to use. Many commented their hair felt smooth and frizz-free after using it, with a noticeable lack of damage. Most said that the straightener, which retails for $129, was great value for money compared to other tools on the market.
