Tyme Iron vs Tyme Iron Pro
As already mentioned above that Tyme Iron Pro is 2nd generation of Iron series from Tyme Style, the first being the Tyme Iron.
Tyme launched their first version back in 2014 to devise a solution for women looking for adorable curls as well straight hairs in lesser time.
The tool was an instant winner due to its purpose serving design. Moreover, its titanium plates (gold-plated) edged over ceramic plates used in other irons due to their higher ionic charge and efficient heat transfer to the hairs.
Company has recently launched Tyme Iron Pro in 2018 which incorporates all the best features of Tyme Iron and integrates new winning features. As a result, it has totally replaced Tyme Iron.
TYME Iron and TYME Iron Pro. The Difference!
Needless to say, one of the features of Tyme Iron pro which strike you instantly is its adorable look and design.
For online purchases, it may sound like a weird idea to initially rate an appliance due to its apparent look.
Still, what I personally think, for a beauty appliance, being beautiful is good omens to begin with.
This is undoubtedly most glittering aspect of TYME Iron Pro. As a matter of fact, one may safely assume that many women start dying to buy TYME Iron Pro due to its charming design.
And you know what?
Details of its outer surface may require ages to be described. The light pink metallic coloring with shimmer, attention to details and the sleekness of the device lines make TYME Iron Pro an impeccable device in terms of visual performance.
We’re not through yet.
I guess the most suited word which defines the design of TYME Iron Pro is ‘luxurious.’
For the same reason, you would want to keep it with utmost care and designate a special position for it on dressing table which will add to its distinctive look.
Having done the above, you will mischievously ensure that it catches the eyes of your friends wanting to steal it.
Because of its captivating look, it will give you feel good affect while giving style to your hairs.
How can you beat that?
When you open Tyme Iron Pro, you will be amazed to see its shine and smoothness in real life as it appears in Pictures.
The manufacture certainly has seemed to make it a point to show the superiority of the product with its outer surface and appearance particularly with rose gold color.
But wait – there’s more.
Apart from look, It gives feeling of reliability as well. It is surprising to see that iron is so light to be used with ease still heavy enough to not give the impression that it is not made from cheap plastic.
You get the feeling that it is worth your money and something to brag about with friends.
You might be thinking that Tyme may have put in lot of thought about the look of the tool to the extent that it might have skipped the user friendliness feature.
As this tool intends to facilitate infinite stylings, thus ease of use feature is a must. If you look at the shape and design of the hair iron, it appears to be quite straightforward for the customers to use.
Heat settings given on the iron are obvious to understand and company has endeavored to eliminate the confusion by keeping minimum buttons.
As if that’s not enough.
Swivel cord fitted with the iron ensures that uncomfortable positions of your arms can be avoided while using the iron.
With their easy rotation and movement, you can easily position them where ever required.
So much so, it will make you say “It, without any shadow of doubt, is the easiest iron to be used.”
Auto Shut Off
The first version (Tyme Iron) didn’t provide the auto shut down feature which didn’t facilitate the mothers who sometimes get diverted by domestic chores or kids while in the middle of using hair iron and forget to shut the iron down.
Nevertheless, as raised in customer feedback, company has removed this drawback and incorporated the auto shutdown feature in Tyme Iron Pro.
Now the device shuts down automatically after 30 minutes idle time. It would not auto shut down while in usage.
In addition to that, Tyme didn’t just rely on customer feedback, they proactively added the temperature memory feature of the product.
So, whatever heat setting you were using, it remembers the same settings such that next time you switch on the Tyme Iron Pro, it restores the last used heat settings.
It is pretty cool feature for users who don’t share the tool with anyone and use same settings every time.
Tyme Iron Pro has five different adjustable temperature settings in order to meet the temperature needs of hairs due to varying nature of hairs.
Available heat settings are 300°F, 325°F, 350°F, 375°F, and 400° F. However, some people consider 365° F as ideal temperature for styling.
But common sense should prevail and one should be cautious to set heat settings and should always keep in into consideration her hair type to avoid any undue hair damage.
As a rule of thumb, the thinner the hair, the more delicate temperature it requires for styling. But remember this: There are exceptions as well.
If you do some research on Irons available in the market, you will come across irons made of different metals.
However, for professional hair styling, titanium plates are considered highly effective and TYME Iron Pro contains those plates.
Furthermore, they are efficient in providing equal heat and get warmed up quicker than the tourmaline or ceramic plates.
Let’s dig a little deeper.
This part is for those who are into chemistry big time. Rest should consider this as another plus of Tyme Iron Pro.
It reduces freeze and keeps natural level of moisture in hairs by producing negative ions when heated.
It is because titanium is an ionic metal. This ionic technology does not damage the hairs and ensures that your hairs are silky and sparkly.
Above all, Titanium is strong like steel but lightweight metal which is one of the reasons you can conveniently carry titanium flat iron during your travels.
So, it increases your mobility without having to worry about the weight of your flat iron curler irrespective of wherever you go.
If you have ever used any iron you would relate to the problem of getting it cooled down quickly.
You need to have a hot sleeve, without which you need to wait for ages for the iron to calm down.
Surprisingly enough. Its quite heartening to see that Tyme Iron Pro brings a free heat sleeve as part of the package.
It means you are not required to go to shopping for a Heat Sleeve exclusively.
It’s a plus from Tyme and not only also saves your time, effort and money of buying Hot Sleeve but also provide convenience of carrying the Iron wherever you go in a safe manner.

|Tips for curling the hair|
|First thing first, begin by ensuring dry hairs. You can continue with dirty hairs for better results. But if you want to freshly washed hair then wash and clean them completely. You can then use towel to dry them because you should never use the iron on wet hair.|
|After getting your hairs dry, it is recommended to group you hairs in order to manage them easily. (Although it is not mandatory but it certainly adds value).|

|This color scheme of brown and gold is for ease of user to differentiate. Remember brown lines for curls and gold plates for straightening.|
|Movement of Wrist is very paramount for this iron. When you’re looking to curl your hairs, position your wrist towards the mirror just like you ‘re revving a motorbike.|
|In next step, using the wrist position, move the arm slowly and gradually towards the mirror during styling. It should be moving outward or upward.|
|Using the aforesaid wrist action, you pull it up and over your head when you need to style hair at the back.|
|Now hold the upper side of one group of hair between the Tyme Iron while ensuring at the same time that your wrist is facing the mirror and then start moving the iron towards the end of hair till it is released from there. The result is a beach wave.|
|Please make sure that movement of iron through hair should be slow and smooth instead of rushing through it. Else you would not attain your desired curl. This basically is intended to get rid of any potential frizz and resultantly more curls are achieved.|
|As it is not a conventional straightener therefore its usage should be made gently, slowly and with consistent speed through the hairs otherwise uneven heating may damage the hairs.|
|With practice you will find out the speed which is required for your desirable curl type. As a rule of thumb, move the Tyme Curler quicker for looser culrs whereas move it slowly for tighter curls.|
|When you’re looking to style the left hand side, you will employ the same procedure. Right hand should be on top of your head and then place group of hair into iron. Now your arm should proceed towards the mirror such that wrist keeps facing the mirror. For some it is easier said than done but practice makes a women perfect.|
|It is not all about the iron, if you have fine hairs then you would have to be bit cautious after curling as combing the hairs is not advisable until the curl is set after the processing.|
|We are not done with the Don’ts. Too much of tension is not sensible as you will get hair kinks due to over pressing the plates. These kinks are more visible on fine hairs.|
|Professional stylist suggest not to use too many hair simultaneously. For better results, group you fine hairs vertically.|
|Don’t forget to switch it off when you’re done.|
|Tips for ringlets to smooth curls|
|Same prerequisites apply for this ironing too. Yes, conditioned and washed hair are needed to begin with.|
|Dry the hairs with towel and apply heat protectant.|

|Place the hair inside the iron and barrel shaped body should be wrapped with rest of the hairs.|
|Slowly and smoothly move the iron towards mirror. while hair outside the iron should be held by your other hand during this glide.|
|Resultantly a shiny curl is ready to be released.|

|Only slight change is required which is to see the gold plates for guidance. Now it is as simple as gliding the iron through the hairs gently.|
