I was contacted from a representative of Misikko a few week ago to try out one of their top rated flat irons. I had read a few reviews on this flat iron and knew I was in for a treat! I kept finding nothing but amazing reviews on this product. It made me wonder if this would this be the best hair straightener I have ever tried?!
My first thought about the straightener was how great the packaging is. It came in this box that just screams "professional." It includes 2 pamphlets: one being a detail list of some of their best selling products and the other is the Manual. The manual not only included instructions on how to get different hair styles (straight, curls, or ways to flip your hair out), but also very helpful tips and recommended heat settings for the different types of hair (very fine, fine or chemically damaged, medium, and thick). The straightener was inside a Heat Resistant Storage bag. I was already impressed! When I finally got to the straightener, I couldn't help but notice how pretty it is!
Facts about the Flat Iron straight from the website, Misikko:
It's all about the details....
I love the blue details. It has a on/off switch and a temperature dial that goes from 140 degrees to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. The LED light will blink continuously when it has reached the desired temperature. I couldn't believe how fast it heated up! It was at the temperature I wanted within a matter of seconds. Seriously!
I love the curved edge of the straightener! It not only does a great job of straightening my hair, but the curved edge is wonderful for curling! I love the blue ceramic plates!
I absolutely love how long the cord is! I hate buying a hair tool that has a short cord. It makes it extremely difficult to use, but you don't have to worry about that with this flat iron. The cord is the perfect length...not too short, but not too long.
It also has a swivel cord which is a top priority on my list of things that hair tools need! It makes it so much easier to use when a tool has this feature.
I have to say after using the flat iron a couple of times- I have to agree with all of the great reviews out there! My hair just glides so smoothly through the plates and it leaves me hair looking healthy, feeling soft, and very shiny. It helps get rid of frizz with ease! I only had to run the straightener one time through my hair to get it extremely straight. It honestly looks like I just left the hair salon after I use it. I did have to use a heat resistant glove (not included) when I tried to curl my hair though because it does get pretty hot and I didn't want to risk getting burned. It does do a better job at straightening than it does curling. It is very light-weight which is a definitely a plus! I really can't say enough good things about this flat iron though!
It is on sale for $129.98 right now.
This is a bit on the pricey side for a hair straightener, but it is well worth the money. I would rather splurge on something that I know will not only make my hair look great, but also keep my hair healthy. Plus, keep in my mind you not only get the straightener, but you also get the Heat Resistant Storage Bag AND a ton of other goodies that you will see in tomorrow's post. You definitely don't get anything extra when you buy a drugstore hair straightener.
