  • smooth + style at the root

Ever wonder how to control all those baby hairs/edges that are too short to make it into your flat iron? Or those curly roots you can't quite get to? That's what this is for! It's called a root control iron and it changes EVERYTHING. You can effortlessly smooth hairs around your hairline, or at the nape of your neck, and easily tame frizz, cowlicks, and unruly bangs by directing them with this comb/iron hybrid.

1/2" barrel straightens and styles hair while the heat resistant comb keeps the barrel away from the scalp, so you can style at the root without burning yourself

Ceramic coated barrel with temperature sensing rapid heat technology ensures even heat, and helps hair stay shiny and looking healthy

Digital display + 4 temperature pre-sets (up to 430° F) allows you tu customize the temperature to your hair type and texture

Automatic shut-off after 30 min of non-use, built-in safety stand, and 9 ft swivel cord

Super helpful for stubborn cowlicks

I purchased this iron to use on my bangs. I have thick bangs with several cowlicks that I have struggled with for years. I tried using flat irons, but they couldn't get close enough to the root of the hair to truly smooth the cowlicks out. This iron is amazing because I can use it on the roots of...see moreof the reviewer's review

I have thick, coarse, wavy hair and often wake up with cowlicks and flyaways. This tool has been great for finishing touches when curling/straightening/styling my hair or just slicking things down when I'm running out the door in a ponytail. It's easy to use (I was definitely intimidated by it at f...see moreof the reviewer's review

I always seem to have a ton of wavy baby hair and stubborn gray hairs and cowlicks. This is so easy to use and gets all the places the flat iron can’t. Highly recommended if you have any of these challenges.see moreof the reviewer's review

Even at the highest setting, this did not do anything to straighten my hair. I have type 2b hair - this should have worked. A waste of money - had to return it.see moreof the reviewer's review

I was very excited about this tool because I have curly hair and I’ve always struggled with my curly baby hairs around my forehead. I just used and I’m a bit disappointed. The combs on both ends are too thick therefore the strands of hairs don’t run through it — considering I have fine hair. I had...see moreof the reviewer's review

Sadly dissapointed in this. I love almost all of everything KE puts out there, but this was a miss for me. I wanted it to work SO bad, as I have an aggravating cowlick in the front of my hair, by my part, and can never seem to get it to lay down the way I want it to. I thought this was the answer...see moreof the reviewer's review

I’m so sad about this tool. I LOVE Kristin Ess’s prodcuts and I was so excited to use this on my fine blonde baby hairs that I can’t smooth out with a flat iron around my face. I read another review that said it made their hair stick up and look worse- the same happened to me! I have not returned it...see moreof the reviewer's review
