I was contacted by misikko, a company that specializes in hair straighteners, dryers, and flat irons, to try the Hana Professional Flat Iron. I was really interested after I visited the misikko site because it had great flat irons and my flat iron was on its way out. That's perfect timing.
I didn't know how the Hana Flat iron would work because my hair is thick, course, and curly. The first thing I noticed is how small and light the flat iron is. The flat irons I've had have always been heavy and bulky, so this was something new for me. The Hana Flat iron has heat settings to 450 degrees, so for my thick hair, there was hope of getting it straight. I've tried so many cheaper ones because you know I love a great deal, but when it comes to flat irons, you have to put some money into it.
These are the results. I straightened, flipped, and did some curls here. Before I started, I put some of the Hana Shine Serum in. I really like how it shines your hair without that greasy weighed down look and smells great. I use the BioSilk serum, but this is a lot thinner and less greasy with the same results. If your hair is fine to med-thick, you will get the straight hair, but for thicker, course hair, you get the straight with volume look. I prefer my hair with volume, so it didn't bother me. What I really love about this flat iron is the curls it gives you. Those pretty wispy curls, not the hard defined ones you usually get with other irons. I've been using this to curl my hair now. Whether you curl or straighten, your hair stays that way. If your looking for something different than the Hana Flat Iron, go to the misikko site that says Best Flat Irons, you'll find product raves from beauty experts and customers and more details on their products and the best hair type for the product. They also carry CHI and Corioliss straighteners.
