We can’t always give busy mums more time, but we can help her do the things she needs to more quickly.

The Salon Straight Sonic (HP466) from Philips couples gentle sonic vibrations with specially coated Nano-Diamond Ceramic plates to reduce the time it takes to straighten hair by up to 30 percent. The vibrations work to spread hair evenly over the highly polished plates, which glide effortlessly through the hair to create super-smooth, glossy tresses.

The combination of technologies also allows bigger sections of hair to be placed between the plates without compromising the final finish. Able to heat to 220 degrees Celsius and supplied with a three metre cord, this is a pro-grade product that empowers time-poor mammas to create salon style from home.

The Philips Salon Straight Sonic costs $99.95.
