Misikko Review + Hair Ramblings

When I was contacted by Misikko to review one of their styling products, I browsed the site and was immediately intrigued by the top10 best flat irons list.  I was also wanting to do another hair post soon anyway, so this review was the perfect opportunity to ramble about my hair. :)

Now being honest, I am not a huge fan of flat irons as I do not like BONE straight hair.  I like a bit of texture to my hair, especially when wearing weave – I think it looks so much more natural.  

My normal routine is to let my hair air dry {mostly} after washing it then finish with a warm blow dryer.  I then use a Hot Tools 1.5 inch curling iron to straighten and wave/curl my hair.  I figured I could use the flat irons to straighten and smooth the hair – then use the curling iron to style it.  Well, I have been using the Hana Titanium 1.5 flat irons since getting them a week and a half ago – to straighten and style, and I love them! 

The shipping on these was really fast, which a definite plus, in my book.  In the box with the flat irons was also: a brush, a rubber mat to lay the irons on while they are heating to protect your surface, a cute case to store them in, a towel-hood to wrap and dry your hair after washing, a small bottle of "shine shield", which is a leave in treatment {that I did not use}, an ELF lip gloss {which is pretty good} and an ELF shimmering cream {did not use}.


A few points about my hair:

♥ The weave that I have in is raw Brazilian virgin wavy hair, in 16 inches. I dyed it jet black on Saturday night {and I love it!}

♥ I use DOVE Intensive Repair shampoo and conditioner {I wash it with shampoo every other week and co-wash – using conditioner ONLY – every week.} This is the most amazing shampoo and conditioner, I HIGHLY recommend it.

♥ I did not put any other products in my hair. And I hardly ever do; I like to keep my hair clean and product-free. I am so obsessed with fresh fluffiness. No oils or serum.  If I am curling it, I will lightly spritz it to hold the curls a little better.  If I use the foam rollers at night to sleep in, I don’t use anything at all.

♥ To preserve the body and shine, I wrap my hair at night in a beehive and tie it tight, using a CLEAN scarf.

{AFTER {with absolutely no product!}}



Here are my final thoughts on the Hana Titanium Ionic Flat Irons:

♥ The packaging of this product was absolutely adorable!  I am a pretty-packaging lunatic.  I love when something arrives and is perfectly put together.  It makes a huge difference in the experience, in my opinion.

♥ I have always heard that the Chi hair straighteners get hot but these flat irons get really really HOT, really really fast.  They go up to 450, but I only had them set to 400.  The heat-up speed is really important to me, I loved plugging them in and being able to begin to style my hair almost instantly. Using these gave my hair a beautiful shine and great body - that I don’t think I would have gotten with the curling iron. 

♥ Flattening and smoothing my hair was insanely effortless.  I have been excited to plug in and use these every morning {I do need to get a little better at bending at the right angle though when I want to wave/curl my hair with them.}

Overall, they are really good flat irons and I think whoever gets them would be completely satisfied. If I had to have a con, it would probably be the price. At $175, they are expensive and may be out of a reasonable price range.  BUT, I do believe in splurging every once in a while on something that I know I will have forever, so these would be worth it if I were considering buying some.  And the free shipping and $10 off "winter10 code" would lessen the blow a little.

So tell me, what are your heat styling tips and thoughts on using a good flat iron?



xoxo, thanks for reading!
