My new favorite flat iron

I was recently contacted by a rep from Misikko.com to see if I'd be interested in trying and reviewing one of their flat irons. Why yes, yes I would! I received the HANA Professional 1" Flat Iron.

When I opened the box, I was overwhelmed by all the goodies I received. Seriously, look at this loot! There was the flat iron itself in its own protective pouch, an additional heat proof travel pouch, a heat proof mat, a hairbrush, e.l.f. makeup products, hand sanitizer, emery boards, a Christmas ornament, and some kind of potpourri-ish roses that smell fantastic! My goodies were even wrapped in pretty ribbons and bows. Before I even touched anything, I was impressed.

For the most part, I do not have wavy or curly hair. What I do have are major frizzies and flyaways. I also have really thick hair, so it takes forever and a day to dry and straighten my mane.

Reasons Why I Love This Flat Iron:
1. It heats up super fast, so there's no waiting around. I brushed my teeth. It was HOT!
2. I love love love the no-slip heat proof mat. Before, I was setting my flat iron on the bathroom counter hoping it didn't slide off into the floor. Now, I don't have to worry because it stays put.
3. I section off my hair, swipe the flat iron over the sections once, maybe twice if it's really frizzy, and I'm done.
4. My hair didn't snag and remained soft and shiny.
5. It smoothed out ALL of my flyaways.
6. It has a swivel cord, so it doesn't get tangled and twisted.
7. It comes with a 2-year warranty.

Here are some pictures of my hair after I used the Hana Pro 1" Flat Iron. I should mention these are after I shampooed, conditioned and blow dried my hair. Usually, I use some kind of product, but I didn't this time. I wanted to see what the flat iron could do on its own. Impressed, y'all.

I've been a Chi girl for years and can say without a doubt that I've switched teams. I highly recommend Misikko and their flat irons. I also love their packaging and mad customer service skills. They have the best hair dryers too. I give them two snaps in a circle formation.

I was provided the above product in exchange for my review. The opinions expressed herein are all mine.

Two snaps up in circle formation. High praise indeed. I use a Sedu and I'm pretty happy with that but if it ever breaks, I'll be sure to check this out!

You lucky ducky! That's awesome. I have super thick hair too but mines wavy and frizzy - this sounds like it might do the trick for me. I guess I better start saving my pennies. :)

P.S. I tried to find that darn app for the sparkles and I don't think downloaded the right one (is it only of iPhones? or is it avail on droid too? and can you tell I'm tech challenged?) ;)

I hope when my Chi retires, I can remember this!

I so need one of these. Mine is a cheap one from Target and it sucks.

This is awesome! I'm in love with my GHDs, but I want all those goodies! Especially the mat.
