By working at the intersection of biology and technology, Riiviva makes clinical-grade beauty treatments affordable to everyone.

Introducing John Frieda’s Satin Hair Straightener!

John Frieda has released an awesome new hair straightener! Introducing the Satin Finish Hair Straightener! It has Advanced Ionic technology to reduce frizz and enhance shine.  With 15-second heat up and high heat, you can reach the variety of styles you desire.  It heats up to 455°F, for pinpoint styling.

(Okay, I have to ask…. can you imagine using a straightener at 455 degrees! WOW!)

I have very finnicky hair. We’re talking stubborn. It can’t decide if it’s straight – or curly – and has made me late to parties more times than I can count. I need good tools, like these, to help ease my pain. If I’m curling or straightening my hair, I know I can trust John Frieda’s tools. They have never steered me wrong, and they last a lifetime. I have now this straightener and a couple curling irons (oh, and a rod) and I LOVE THEM. They heat up in a second, and then the results last for hours!

You can buy this tool at Target – or by going here!
