Misikko Flat Irons: Hana Professional Review & Giveaway

So a few weeks ago I received one of the best packages a girl could ever receive: (besides a package of shoes) a hair straightener! My father was too funny- he was like "Why do you need a hair straightener? Your hair is already straight." "Umm, yeah Dad that's because I use a hair straightener every morning." Once I said that he just kind of looked at me and walked away. He's right though, my hair is semi straight. But I have a lot of frizz and waves, and when it's humid out, my hair looks like I put my finger in an electrical socket.

I've been through a lot of hair straighteners/flat irons throughout the years. From inexpensive flat irons that takes hours just to get it semi straight and smooth and also ruin your hair, leaving it very brittle and dry, to fairly expensive flat irons that have your hair silky straight in under 10 minutes and leave your hair extremely shiny and healthy looking. So when Misikko said they would send me a Hana hair straightener to review I was overly delighted since my current straighter was on it's last leg.

Let's talk Shipping and Packaging:
They shipped the straightener to me in a day and when I opened the box I was super shocked at what was inside. Not only did they send the straightener in a special edition tin but also a heat resistant mat, travel case, Hana Shine Shield, Lip Gloss, a little white bag that had hand sanitizer and nail files in it. Also in the box was a lovely white rose and two little white roses, that under further investigation I realized were dissolving soaps. I think it shows a lot about a company when they take the time and care to put a package together like this. And honestly, roses will get a girl every time- real or not they make ya smile :)

On to the Flat Iron:
Besides the $40 flat irons that you can find at Target I sometimes used my friends Chi straightener and loved it. I had never heard of Hana before but now that I've used the straightener I'm in love. I think it's better than the Chi. My hair is normally frizzy, flips up, and just looks dull.Pardon the look right now- I terribly need a hair cut. Can you say split ends?
The flat iron has an adjustable temperature dial from 140-450° F. I set it at 450° F because my hair is hard to curl. It heated up within a minute and when I used the flat iron it slid through my hair with out a snag or burnt piece of hair! Within 5 minutes I was completely done and my hair was silky straight and shiner than before. I then finished it up with a bit of Frizz Ease hair serum and hair spray to make my baby hairs go down. The end product?
As much as I love my new flat iron, and can’t imagine styling my hair without it, the service and expertise I received from Misikko will make me come back for more. Make sure you head on over to http://www.misikko.com/ and check out all they have to offer. There are Chi flat irons for sale, and the Corioliss flat iron which won in the 2007 Media Awards. While there make sure you check out the best flat iron page which will help you find the perfect iron for you.
