About nanoe™
Standby mode
What is nanoe™?
If the temperature setting is on 230 °C, 200 °C, or 180 °C and
the straightener is left unused for approximately 10 minutes,
the temperature will automatically lower to 170 °C.
The indicator light will blink alternately
between 230 °C, 200 °C, or 180 °C
and 170 °C
nanoe™ is ion particles enveloped in water and is not visible
to the naked eye. Since nanoe™ is generated by collecting
water in the air, it may be difficult to generate in certain cases
depending on the environment. This is due to the fact that
water in the air is difficult to collect when the temperature and
humidity level is low. This is when negative ions are generated.
(nanoe™ and negative ion generation method: High-voltage
discharge)
How nanoe™ works
Once the straightener is used again, or the [-] or [+]
temperature setting switches are pressed, the temperature
will return to 230 °C, 200 °C, or 180 °C.
The 230 °C, 200 °C, or 180 °C
light will blink and then light up.
(Depending on use, it may light
up without flickering.)
►Note
●●Place hair in the center of the iron plate to use.
(If hair is placed on edge of the iron plate, the straightener
may not be able to detect it is in use.)
Automatic OFF function
Generally hair has properties which make it easy to become
positively charged with electricity. These properties attract
strongly negatively charged nanoe™ which penetrates the hair
with moisture. Furthermore, they make the hair slightly acidic,
tighten cuticles and keep your hair strong, elastic and healthy.
►Notes
●●You may notice a characteristic odor when using this
appliance. This is caused by the ozone it generates and is
not harmful to the human body.
●●A humming noise may come out of the nanoe™ Outlet, but
this is the sound of nanoe™ being discharged and is not a
malfunction.
This unit will automatically turn off when 60 minutes have
passed from the start of use.
The power will shut off even if you are using this unit, so in this
event, please turn on the power once again.
After using this unit, even if you forget to shut off the power,
after 60 minutes have passed, it will automatically turn off.

Hair types and straightening guidelines
The hair straightening effect may differ among individuals by
the degree of curliness and hair type.
Hard-to-straighten hair
12
Coarse hair, Kinked hair
About hair-straightening products
•• Do not use the straightener immediately after a home
straight perm liquid is used. Doing so may damage your
hair. (The straightener may be used 3-4 days after a
straight perm liquid. The straightener may also be used
3-4 days after having your hair treated at a beauty parlor.)
About dyeing products
•• Dyeing places great stress on the hair. After dyeing please
wait for 2 or 3 days before using the straightener. If you
use a temporary dye, wash it out and dry your hair before
use.
•• It takes some time after dyeing for the color to settle. In the
case of the temporary dye, the dye can dirty the
straightener if it is not fully washed out. Also, your hair
cannot be straightened when it is wet.

Set a temperature by using
the Temperature Setting
Switches according to the
characteristics and
condition of your hair.
•• Confirm that the Temperature Setting Lamp has

blinking (and glows), the straightener has reached the
selected temperature.
(Note that the time taken to reach operating temperature
may vary depending on the operating environment.)
►Notes
•• A temperature level of more than 200 is high and may
damage your hair.
We recommend that you avoid continuous lengthy use
of this level, and only use it if your hair is in a suitable
condition.
•• After switching on, the straightener reaches operating
temperature (approximately 100 °C) after about
30 seconds.
•• When you use the straightener for the first time, be sure
