Torlen Professional Soft Touch Fuschia Hair Straightener ~ It's PINK!

This is for all you girls who've been asking me about hair straighteners. I've got a pretty good one that's available in India and.....and... it's PINK! =)
Torlen Soft Touch Fuschia Hair Straightener was a tool that caught my fancy backstage at Lakmé Fashion Week, because I've a-l-w-a-y-s wanted a pink hair iron. So.... I asked a kind lady from Lakmé Studio to help me get it, and she did. I was over the moon when I got it before leaving Mumbai!

Temperature control, ON & OFF button. I usually keep it at 150°C

The cords of my other hair irons/hairdryers twist annoyingly, so it's so cool that this one doesn't + it's really long.

It straightens my hair really well, but what I like most about it it's curling ability, coz I don't like my hair totally straight. It curls the ends beautifully, since the pink soft rubberized material is curved in a way that enables hair to twist around it effortlessly. Hair does glide very smoothly on the Ceramic Tourmaline plates. You know, there are ceramic irons & there are tourmaline irons, but this one is both. 
I did a quick (rough) demo below just to give you a better idea:
Natural hair, Ironed with Torlen, Flip-out curls

As you can see, it does straighten well, and also makes my hair look shinier. I'm quite impressed with it, so if you gals are thinking about buying one - a pink one - that won't burn a big hole in your pocket, do check this out.

My previous hair iron was a Vidal Sassoon 1 inch ceramic iron, that I bought from Kuala Lumpur, and it used to eat my hair, meaning: strands used to get stuck on the edges of the plates & get pulled off my scalp, grrr. Now I can throw it in a useless box!

Price ~ MRP is Rs.2500, but I got it for Rs.1600.

My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4.5/5

Tangyroses Salon & Spa Equipments 27 C,
Laxmi Industrial Estate, New Link Road,
Andheri West, Mumbai.
(This is where I bought it from.)

Also sold at Khar Beauty Center, Mumbai.

Delhi: Jacko, 13 Main Metro Road,Pitampura. But this color isn't available there. Other Torlen hair straighteners cost Rs.2500 at Jacko.

Which hair straightener do you use? Please share if you use/used one & help other girls decide which one to get.

  2. I'm totaly sold ! Such bright pink shade ! Love it :)

  3. I have a fancy many in one ceramic Phillips one but not a fan of it! I need this.

    1. Some of those Philips ones are no good


  4. and i always thought VSasson was amazing, thankfully didnt purchase, i got a Babyliss hot air brush for myself, yippie :)

    1. the Babyliss hot air brush is a decent one, gets my hair straightened in 10 mins, but its a bit complictd equipment, bulky and does take a while to get used to rotating movements...but i like it so far...dont buy it on impulse until you see a couple of youtube videos, personally i feel its good only for very thick long hair, like mine...sorry for such a long comment, but i just wanted to ensure i gave you as honest picture, so that gives you a fair idea...bye and lots a love

  5. Looks lovely! Works well, and a fun, bright colour! Awesome!

  6. I have a GHD Styler and I love it, Ive been using it for 2 years now No cracks no Burnt hair no problems. It leave my hair nice and shiny and I can go straight, Flicked out or gentle "kardashian style" curls. Im yet to find a styler thats better than mine and they come Pink, Blue Red Purple, Gold, Black Green. . . You get the picture/

  7. Oh God! Pink! I am a total sucker for all things pink. Oh and can I ask you a quick question? I apply a cheek stain on the apple of my cheeks and blend towards the cheek bones. Am I doing it right? I have a small face and I don't want to look like a clown since I'm a newbie...

    1. yes yes sounds like you're doing it right :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
