You can straighten your hair with practically any flat iron. But for bone-straight hair with a healthy shine and volume, you need the Remington S8700 T|Studio PROtect Flat Iron Straightener.

This extra feature is what we’re all secretly looking for in a flat iron—we just don’t know it yet. And if you want extra conditioning, pour the macadamia conditioning treatment into the reservoir to rehydrate your hair.

But what makes it really outstanding is that it doesn’t weigh down the hair with greasiness like other serums do.
