Philips Kerashine Styler Review

[nbox=notice]You can buy this and other philips products  from Nykaa[/nbox]

There are two kinds of girls in life. The ones born with naturally straight hair – who sail through life mostly with never ever having a bad hair day, just flip their hair over their shoulders and be like ” Oh this, i just washed it and came”. The others are the curly headed creatures like me, who love their hair but for the life of them cannot predict what shape of an animal their hair will be in the next day. I swear sometimes, I wake up and my hair look like a ball of sheep…and sometimes they look like a goat. Moo. Oh wait- goats don’t moo. Anyhow, so yeah, I personally hate Hair straighteners- i feel they make my hair flat and limp and characterless , which leaves options for styling my hair pretty limited but the Philips Kerashine Styler is so useful that i literally can do my hair in ten minutes for a party and get structured, soft waves !!!

Philips says ” Philips KeraShine styler allows you easily create soft waves while caring for your hair. Heated 45mm barrel with Keratin coating secures long lasting results, and retractable bristles guarantee safe application.”

First of all..look at this cool gadgetry haan? If you are obsessed with me all you will want to do is keep twisting the nob so that the bristles go in and out !


The idea is you wrap your hair around the rod on the left and when you want to untangle them, just twist the black knob so the bristles retract and your hair fall free. Genius haan?

philips-ionic-kerashine-hair-styler-2See on the left- today my hair look like a lions ! Roar.

Step 1: Switch the rod on and let it heat for sometime. Then  twist the rod around  your  hair after switching it on.

Step 2: Hold for 2 minutes then retract the bristles and letyour hair fall loose.

Step 3:This is how the  strand looks!



After using the Philips Kerashine Styler , this is how it looks in the end, and this is really after just about 15 minutes of work its not a big deal really.  Also i flipped my hair down and combed through it after a day, and when i flipped it back my waves turned into just a nice, bouncy mass of straightish hair. Me like!

So in my opinion you should get the Philips Styler if :

1. You are after Soft waves and find it hard to get them

2. You get scared of your hair getting caught up in the curling rods of other brands (This doesnt get stuck at all)

3. You want hair that is sleek and structured but still with bounce

Skip this if:

  1. Tight curls is what you are after.

I also use the Philips Salon Stylist which happens to be my favourite curling rod ! The Salon Stylist in FABULOUS for curles and waves both.

[nbox=notice]Buy the Philips the Kerashine Hair Dryer from Nykaa[/nbox]

Verdict: A-

Price : Rs 2595/-

Recommendation: If soft waves are what you are after then the Philips Kerashine Styler will not dissapoint. I wish they sold it with some other attachments too so that i could get multiple types of curls with one product!

PS: Talking about hair in the shape of animals – the day before my wedding was a Pooja and i went in just having washed my hair and this pesky kid comes up to me with a photo of a lion. He points at me and says ” you look like this”. Can you imagine. Saying that to the bride- I swear i wanted to choke the life out of him.

Lol! Kids!
I just love the curls you got! soft curls are totally my kind of thing!


jyoti January 27, 2014 at 10:52 am

hi mahek ..

i have tried a variety of stylers babyliss big hair philips hair stylist etc …
all seem to give me good waves instantly but my hair gets frizzy immediately after styling ..
also the style just lasts for a short time .. was wondering if this one is any different than the ones i use ..
i have medium wavy frizzy hair (similar to urs) and m in constant search of hair products and instuments that give me salon style hair ..but m still to find my magic wand …… any suggestions girls


Pree January 28, 2014 at 12:37 am

Hi Jyoti! I have similar hair and have had similar issues. I guess frizz happens when there isn’t enough moisture in the hair, and since all heating things dry the hair even more…more frizzy….and when the dry hair absorbs moisture from the atmosphere it gets curly again. I used to use a little bit of oil (only a tiny bit at the ends) and some serum …it didn’t work perfectly but helped somewhat.


Clothes and Creativity January 27, 2014 at 10:53 am

Would it work with straight hair? I have super-straight hair and I don’t like using a lot of hair-product! So, will the curls hold in straight hair?


Ritu TheIndianBeautyBlog January 27, 2014 at 11:03 am

looks really nice and I love those curls!
A few more attachments, like you said, would have been great!


Ankita Singh January 27, 2014 at 12:07 pm

Hehe the kid was lucky to get out alive! Something similar happened to me, a day after my wedding I was sitting cross-legged on the sofa as my feet were aching after all the standing in high heels the previous night. My husband’s nephew from the US says to him in accented english: “Look at her, she’s so LS, she’ll surely embarrass you someday”. I wanted to burn him down right there :-P
Love the curls, I’m surely buying this one. I’m one of the straight haired people and always craved these kinda curls! :)


Kalyani September 9, 2014 at 12:41 pm

Omg. .. i would have strangled him. What did you do? What did your husband do? I’m not even sure what LS stand for but sounds bad…. anyway. I was wondering, did you end up buying it? N did it work on straight hair? I really like Mehak’s look but not sure if my straight styling resistant hair will do the same at all.


Shikha January 27, 2014 at 12:29 pm

I am now bored of my straight hair and need a change of style too. Do you use a heat protecting spray before using this?


Bonny January 27, 2014 at 12:34 pm

Hi Mehak,,this gives you really nice soft curls……You know the grass is always greener on the other pasture…In spite of the fact that by the good grace of my Bong genes I have smooth straight hair, I long for curls.. And no curler is able to curl my poker straight hair. Not even the salon guys. Even with a spray, it goes back to normal in less than half an hour, making the hair look greasy and weirdly wavy. Wanted to know if the stores selling this offer a demo!


Tina January 27, 2014 at 6:29 pm

Ha! Me too! A Bong with poker straight hair which nothing is able to curl!
Any tips or suggestions, girls?


Archana January 27, 2014 at 12:39 pm

Nice curls – love the look! I have curly hair too – and yup, in my book, well-behaved curly hair kicks well-behaved straight hair’s a** any day! Only thing is, I am yet to find a way to get my hair to behave consistently :-|. Do you know of any solution to tame frizz (the bane of my existence) that does not involve hot irons or blow dryers or any equipment other than the lotion/serum? I am yet to find that magic potion and believe me, it is not for lack of trying :-D.


Harine January 27, 2014 at 1:20 pm

Sounds promising :)


Yeshta January 27, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Hi Mehak! Just wanted to know if the styler helps to straighten hair, or just curl?


mehak January 27, 2014 at 3:04 pm

Hi Yeshta
It helps to only create waves…but if you notice my hair in the befotre pic- its super frizzy and after the styler its much more smooth and straight from the top…It basically gives an effect where the top of the hair is smooth and the botom has loose waves like a blow dry


Abhilasha January 27, 2014 at 1:38 pm

This looks fun and easy..
well my problem really is “how do u make those curls last??”
I spend 30 mins curling my hair and the curls vanish in about 10 mins..even after hairspray..wats the trick to long lasting curls??


sahana January 27, 2014 at 2:36 pm

I have mainly straight hair which is stubbornly un-stylable. I have tried curling it a million times. But EVERYTIME I curl, the curl just vanishes after an hour or so. Even my hairstylist can’t understand how a hair can be so impossible to style.

This looks wonderful!


Manasi January 27, 2014 at 2:44 pm

Looks like a wonderful product….


Anamika January 27, 2014 at 2:49 pm

Nice product


Sumathi January 27, 2014 at 3:11 pm

Kids are really so scary at times :P They can really embarrass us.. I never thought I can style my junglee curly hair, but this one sounds like a good product. I barely have any hair and I never go near any styling product cos that might take away the volume from the little hair that is left..
You have styled your hair really well. Those soft curls look really nice on you :)


Supria January 27, 2014 at 3:12 pm

Lovely results Mehak :) Who loves tight curls anyways!

Btw if you want straight hair then invest in a good hair volumising spray. They make a world of difference.


Shreya January 27, 2014 at 3:27 pm

Loved the natural looking curls ! I’ve Philips Salon Stylist …. but this one looks great :)


Marathi Weddings January 27, 2014 at 4:46 pm

The grass is always greener on the other side of the hill Mehak! I would love some volume in my super straight hair. Your reviews are too good! But I doubt if the curls will stay even for 2-3 hours on my hair. It doesnt stay put even when done by a professional hairstylist with a lot hair spray n all. :(


Marathi Weddings January 27, 2014 at 4:51 pm

Just read other comments. Nice to know I am not the only one!! ;) :P


Meghana January 27, 2014 at 5:12 pm

love the curls u got. too pretty. :)


Gauri January 27, 2014 at 5:46 pm

Wow this looks awesome!! Philips Kerashine looks right up my street!!!


Rashmi January 27, 2014 at 8:40 pm

Tiny January 28, 2014 at 12:20 am

I use panasonic hair styler, Yet am not able to create the waves at the hair ends properly, so was thinking of getting a new better one and This Post is Just In Time..Thanks Mehak !!


Vineetha January 28, 2014 at 8:19 am

Ah nice one! waves just the way I like it! :-)


Megha January 28, 2014 at 10:09 am

Oh god…..Mehak, you have a wonderful sense of humor, im still holding my stomach & laughing :-).
This is unique style of writing is so amusing and yet informative too…a complete infotainment haan.
Vaise I have exactly same hair quality as that of yours and i even hate straighteners for the same reason. Im planning to buy Philips one but im compleetly novice in it. Should i purchase it?????


mehak January 28, 2014 at 5:04 pm

go ahead.


Pallavi bose January 28, 2014 at 3:23 pm

This luks grt mehak….and u luk super cute again…But i guess philips also has a hair styler which makes hair straight and curl both…it actually has 6 styles in that single beauty…I will let u know the name


coralcrue January 28, 2014 at 6:37 pm

It really did dress up your hair nicely :)


Amani Zara January 28, 2014 at 6:46 pm

My hair are total flat n fine hair.. No curls last long n such loose curls can’t even stand few hours.. But I love soft curls.. :(


Swati January 29, 2014 at 2:38 am

Oh my! This makes really great soft waves… and that rotating bristles thing is so fancy!
I do need advice though Mehak, I have the Philips salon stylist but I so cannot get good curls with that curling rod. I have tried so many times. All I end up with is weird hair. Please help! Is there any particular thing I need to do? I must be missing something.


Rashmi January 29, 2014 at 12:00 pm

gonna buy it asap! This appears simpler than the salon stylist. I have that but it takes me a lotta time to get the curls right.


girl January 29, 2014 at 6:37 pm

if i have to choose between this and the philips salon styler… which one should i go for??


mehak January 29, 2014 at 7:49 pm

What do you need? tighter curls or soft waves? Salon styler gives you the option to do both so i say go with that


girl January 30, 2014 at 12:37 pm

I think the softer ones will suit me better…
Thanx for replying though… :-)


Mayuri January 31, 2014 at 1:44 pm

you look great dear :) the styler looks interesting.. will check it out :)


shwetha February 27, 2014 at 1:17 am

mehak February 27, 2014 at 10:13 am

Hi SHweta,

Manali March 29, 2014 at 11:48 pm
