Hair. Oh the many-a-time I have wished I could shave it all off and not be burdened with it. I have no patience for my hair whatsoever. It simply does what it does, never asking me what I prefer. Being one with straight hair, I wish for flirty, volumous curls. And those with curls most often dream of my seemingly maintenance-free straight hairs. Neither is superior, of course. Every hair type comes with its pros and cons. It just seems the cons are magnified when I'm already 10 minutes late for church and my silky strands will hardly stay in a ponytail, let alone be molded into anything fancy.
My hair is straight, but not perfectly so. A wave here. A kink there. An unnatural part. A weird cowlick. Those little nuisances and imperfections that I try so hard ignore.
When I go to the salon, the stylist always flat irons my hair to get it silky smooth. After that, I wish I never had to wash my hair again. For a few sweet hours, maybe even a full day, perfection has been attained atop my head. But I know it's only temporary because I have had neither the tools nor the skills to duplicate the stylist's handiwork. Several hairdressers have suggested that I invest in a flat iron, and I always meant to, really I did...
So how perfectly appropriate that the kind folks at Misikko would contact me to review one of their high-quality hair straighteners! How in the world did they know to send me a pink one to match my bathroom!? Luck-ducky me! Misikko's products come in all different styles and colors - check out their Chi flat irons for sale, the Babyliss flat iron, and see what are considered the best flat irons!
I have very little experience or expertise with hair products of any kind, so I was a bit nervous that I wouldn't know how to use my cute, pink flat iron to its full potential. Thankfully, once I got the temperature setting high enough (it heats up in seconds!), I figured it out just fine and it worked great!
First, I straightened out the kinks in my hair. Then, I proceeded to curl my hair under to give it a little lift. It worked! And I no longer fear the flat iron! Now I can get that sleek look, like I just stepped out of the salon. Or I can have soft, pretty curls. Oh, what fun possibilities!
Surely, you're itching to get your hands (and hair) on one of these pretties too. Good news! Misikko has generously offered to giveaway a Hana Professional Flat Iron to one lucky Spoils of Wear reader! Whoohoo!
