I have been through a number of hair straighteners throughout the years. From inexpensive flat irons that ruin your hair and leave it very brittle and dry, to fairly expensive flat irons that leave your hair extremely straight and healthy looking.
My hair must be straightened or it’s a huge mess. Frizzy, dead and unhealthy to look at. When Misikko agreed to allow me to review a hair straightener I was thrilled. My current one which has done me good for 6 years now has seen better days. Hubby has had to repair it on 3 separate occasions as the cord is way to twisted and has pulled wires out. Not very safe. After doing some research on flat irons it just became to much until I found the Misikko site. Here is a little bit about Misikko:
“Located outside of Philadelphia, a city known for its creative – but practical! – approach to high style, Misikko emerged from a desire we share with many of you: to easily shop and compare the best professional styling tools & beauty products on the market. As beauty aficionados and savvy consumers, our goal is to help you learn about the tools of the trade so you can find the right salon tools & products at the right prices – whenever & wherever the mood strikes.”
Misikko sent me the Hana Professional Flat Iron 1″ Pink Edition for my review. I have to start with the arrival and all the goodies that came with this iron. It arrived in a special edition tin case which included a luxe heat proof storage pouch, a heat proof silicone mat, Hana ShineShield Thermal Protectant which leaves your hair amazingly soft and shiny, lipstick and a gift pack for my nails. All this accented with roses. They took the time and care to put this package together which shows a lot about a company. Of course the color pink which is my favorite is a huge plus for this iron but let me tell you about all the features of this iron.

Amazing isn’t it? Well, what did I think of this iron? I love it! My hair is extremely thick and I have a lot which can take forever to straighten it. I still had to section my hair off into 2-3″ sections but with the high heat feature of 450°, one time from root to end is all it took to straighten the section. It actually took less time with this flat iron than any other I have had. Once it was finished I couldn’t believe how conditioned my hair felt. It was silky, shiny, soft and healthy looking. All from a flat iron. I didn’t know that was possible. And like I said I’ve had many. It also stayed frizz free the entire day. That never happens. I have to say that I went to my beautician a few days after receiving this. I washed my hair and straightened before I went. Keep in mind I haven’t had my hair done for over 3 months. She looked at me and said how healthy my hair had been after not seeing her for a while. How great it still looked and it left my hair with salon results. That made me smile. I would highly recommend this flat iron to anyone.
The soft curls it left my hair were just beautiful. They normally would fall right out but they stayed. It straightened with ease and left beautiful shine. I love all the styles I can do with this. Curly, straight, flipped out or under. I’ll never have a dull hair day that’s for sure.
