Jilbere Titanium Tools hair straightener is not operating correctly. When plugged in and turned on, the red light indicating that the straightener is on lights up, however the plates do not heat up.


I recommend to get a better hair straightener, I bought mine at safrons it's the Karmin G3 Salon Pro with ceramic tourmaline plates to avoid hair damages, it heats up really quick and leave my hair soft, shiny and super straight, hope this helps.

My conair infinityhair straightener just stopped heating up.it turns on but it dosent heat up.


This is a job for one with a multimeter and soldering iron. Remove the temperature knob and the plate below that. It will expose the inside of the top half of the Straightener. You will see two set of red and black wires soldered to a green circuit board. See if the soldering are intact and no wire has come loose . Now unsolder the red wires ( please note which wire goes where ). With the multimeter in the Ohms range ( X100 ) touch the probes on the red and black wires each and check for continuity. The red and black wires are two ends of the ceramic heaters. If they have failed , replace .

My Conair Proshine Straightner won't warm up, although the light is on. How do I fix this? ... hot plates not heating and the light says its warming up but the hot plates won't heat up


Most heated hair appliances are protected by a thermistor that will fail if overheated. These are small, about 1/2" long, cylindrical in shape with a pointy end and a wire coming from each end. When they go bad, they do not conduct electricity (zero ohms on a meter). There is a three digit number on the side that is the shutoff temperature. You can get these at Radio Shack.

Don't bypass this safety device.

I need directions on how to use the Revlon ceramic Straightener model RVST2024


I love my hair straightener. It doubles for a clean modern straight look to sexy voluptuousness Kim Kardashian curls without going to the salon. If you do it right your hair will look professional and feel so soft.
1. Clean and Wash Hair: I always like to have clean hair before I style it, it isn't necessary but it makes me feel more refreshed.
2. Make sure your hair is dry. I prefer to air dry because it is the healthiest way to not damage your hair. But if you want to get more volume, using the blow dryer works well.
3. Before using any straightener make sure you get heat protector gel or spray because this will help make sure your hair does not become damaged when styling.
4. I like to split my hair up into sections to get them out of the way by using hair ties or hair clips. Sectioning your hair also helps a lot of if you have specific styles you are going for.
5. Finally, do not turn on the straightener too high because it's a sure way to damage your hair. Instead, consider low-med. If it's your first time, don't rush it because you will get burned. Give yourself an hour or more! Learning how to do it the first time can be frustrating and it doesn't always look great the first time. With some practice you can also create curls with a straightener as well.
Other tips: They have specific wet-dry straightener which can be used on wet hair but unless you have those, do not use the straightener with your wet hair because it'll give you split ends and damage your hair.
Here are some more tips for straightening that might be useful for you.

My conair straightener won't heat up


that same thing is happening to me! but iv had mine for almost 2 years...exact same hair straightener, its happening to many people! i dont know if this is the problem but alot of people wrap their cords around their straighteners (i did too) and it twists the cord that conects to the hair straightener and makes it loose. i still have not found a way to solve this problem.

i would just go out and buy a new one, and if your looking for good but inexpensive i suggest vidal sassoon. they get really hot and have many settings and many different types. mine has worked greats

just remember not to wrap the cord

Conair hair straightener


It could be a couple things:

1. Bad heating element
2. Bad thermal fuse

Is it still under warranty? Perhaps the warranty is listed in the instruction book if you still have it.
