Ionic Technology Many aspects of modern living, including air conditioning, contact with man-made fibres and air pollution contribute to a build-up of static electricity in the hair. Even brushing and towel drying the hair can increase these levels, causing the surface of the cuticle to become rough. Consequently, hair may have a dull appearance. Also high levels of static charge cause hair to become “fly-away” and difficult to style. The ion generator produces a stream of negative ions which act to neutralise the static charge, smoothing the scales on the cuticle for shiny, smooth and manageable hair so you can achieve your desired style easily. Heat Settings There are 2 heats plus a cool setting. Use the high heat setting for initial drying, and the low heat setting as hair begins to dry and for styling. Use the cool setting to set the style for long lasting results. Slide the ‘on/off’ switch to the first position to select the cool setting ‘*’, the second position for the low heat ‘I’, and the third position for the high heat ‘II’. Rotation Settings There are two rotation speed settings. To make the brush head rotate, press the buttons marked << and >>, these will make the brush head rotate clockwise and anticlockwise. When the appliance is set on the high heat setting the brush head rotation will be faster. When the appliance is set on the low heat setting the brush head rotation will be slower. For best results, use the rotating brush feature to create styles with gorgeous volume and shine. NOTE: When the appliance is used on the cool setting, the brush head will not rotate. Protective Cover After every use, always ensure the protective cover is placed over the brush head. This protects the bristles from damage. When placing the protective cover over the brush head, ensure to line it up with the grooves around the top of the airstyler so it slides easily into place. NOTE: The diagram on the protective cover demonstrates the direction it should be placed on to the brush head. If placed on incorrectly it may be difficult to remove. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE • If you have long or thick hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hairdryer first, to rough dry your hair and remove the excess moisture. For added volume, turn your head upside down as you dry. • Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using the styler. Maximum Volume and Body 1) Start by sectioning the hair. 2) To turn the appliance on, slide the ‘on/off’ switch to the correct heat setting for your hair. 3) Place the appliance into the hair, close to the roots and brush through the section to remove any tangles. 4) For added root lift, hold the brush in place at the root for a few seconds. 5) Move the brush through the hair, towards the ends and as you reach the end of the section, start to rotate the brush away from your head by pressing and holding the appropriate rotation button. 6) As you do this, resist the rotation of the brush by pulling the brush downwards. This will create tension through the section of hair. IMPORTANT! It may take several attempts to perfect this technique, if the brush spins too quickly, simply release the rotation button and remove from the hair. 7) For even more volume, place the brush at the end of the hair section and allow the brush to rotate along the hair section by pressing and holding the appropriate rotate button. Wind the entire section of hair around the barrel until you reach the root. Release the rotate button and then leave the brush in the hair for a few seconds. 8) Slide the switch to the cool setting ‘*’ for a further few seconds, this creates long, lasting volume. 9) To release the section, move the switch back to setting ‘I’ or ‘II’ then press and hold the opposite rotation button to unwind the hair section. 10) Repeat as necessary. 11) After use, switch off and unplug the appliance. 12) Allow to cool before storing away. 13) Place protective shield over brush head to protect the bristles. Please see the ‘Protective Cover’ section for direction. Helpful Hints and Tips • To define layers and add shape to the ends of the hair, follow steps 5 - 6 and repeat through the sections. • To get root volume and body through the top section of hair, follow steps 7 - 9 using an upward motion.
