I should say I am slightly flat iron challenged. I never know what temperature to use or how to do a really good job. But now I am in luck. The flat iron I have is apparently the Lexus of flat irons. It's the Hana 1" Professional flat iron. Not only is it a top seller at Misikko, a family run business, but it gets high praise across the web and from magazines like Marie Claire. Here's why it's worth paying the extra cash versus what you would pay for a flat iron at a drug store.
It has 100% Ceramic plates. This means that heat is distributed evenly, without hot spots that scorch your hair. Very few flat irons can say that and the ones that can cost way more than the Hana Professional.
The plates also contain Tourmaline, which produces ions that actually make your hair smoother and silkier than a flat iron without Tourmaline.
You can style damp or dry hair. The plates are floating, which means it can style any texture of hair.
It also has controllable temperature that ranges from 140-450 degrees.
So with all of these great things, can a more expensive flat iron really make a difference? I turned to one of my friends who uses a flat iron daily to take it for a test drive. Erin has long, brown wavy hair that she flat irons daily. What did she think? "I was surprised it did such a better job than the flat iron I have been using. It made my hair straighter than my usual iron does and my hair feels incredible. It's silky and smooth today. Normally, it feels more coarse and dry - like it's straight, but damaged. I am really impressed. I didn't expect a more expensive flat iron to make that much of a difference, but it definitely did."
Now if only Erin can give me some ideas on how to style my hair while it grows, I will be a happier girl. It turns out having really short hair for my entire adult life has left me with the hairstyling skills of a 5th grader. It's seriously a problem and I need ideas! (I'll be sure to update you if Erin actually gives me any ideas.)
