TUFT Hair Straightening Iron

TUFT is a Canadian brand, and I (ola, Flie here!) managed to get my hands on one of their hair straighteners for super cheap as TUFT recently discontinued it to make way for their new line and they are practically throwing away their damaged/incomplete sets (Each set is supposed to come with a hair dryer, straightening iron, travel pouch, six sectioning clips, one flat comb and one paddle brush) so we're letting this set go for only RM80 inclusive of e-Parcel (Works like registered post)! Please note that the box is huge, so orders of RM100 and above that contains this will be getting free postage via e-Parcel, not Pos Laju.

Comes with a handy travel pouch that fits everything (except the paddle brush)

This set contains the travel pouch (silver bit at the flap and pocket is heat resistant =D), a straightener, flat comb (wide and narrow toothed), six crimp-free sectioning clips and an extra large paddle brush (not pictured, see below)

Extra huge paddle brush! Meeps I wanttttt, will be so chun for my long and crazy thick hair *le sigh*

Crimp-free sectioning clips are made from metal, but rubber coated for better grip and heat resisting.

Straightening iron's specifications:
Ionised dual-baked ceramic plates (normal size of 9cm long by 2cm wide)
Adjustable temperature  from 140°F to 440°F, approximately 60°C to 227°C
Smooth rounded barrel makes for better curls
Lightweight
360° swivel cord
Extra length cord (2.5 meters long!)
Suitable for Malaysian voltage (250V, 2.5A) 
Two pin plug
No locking mechanism =(
Manual on/off switch, no auto off.
Manual heat change, no accidental change when in use =D
LED light for notification (Blinks when heating, steady light when selected temperature is reached)


Only one set is available on hand at the moment, and this set has one sectioning clip slightly chipped and there is no hair dryer.


Also, please note that I have used this straightener once to test it out and compare it with my Remington S5500 (UK). I had to decide on which one to keep (one head two straighteners meh) and decided on the Remington because it was a gift from my bestie and also because it has the auto off function, which airheaded me will need as I'll definitely forget to turn it off one day T.T I personally found the TUFT one to be nicer to use though, as it's lighter and also even though the plates aren't floating plates like my Remington, the TUFT one actually gives better glide and doesn't tug on my hair at all!

We might be able to restock this, but there's a high probability it'll be sold out :(

TL;DR:
 TUFT Straightening Iron with travel pouch, six sectioning clips (one slightly chipped), one flat narrow/wide tooth comb and one extra large paddle brush for RM80 only!
