Product Review and Giveaway : Hana Straightener

Whether you've been checking in on my blog for awhile now or just started yesterday, I'm sure you've noticed that I'm all about budget-friendly fashion, make-up, etc. That being said.. this will probably come as a surprise to you.

I paid $125 for a hair straightener. 

Yep.

It was back in 2005 and I haven't regretted it since. One of my roomies in college had a Chi Straightener and if any of you have tried the Chi, you will agree with this.. once you go Chi, you never go back. After borrowing my roomies Chi for two semesters, there was no way I could go back to another type of straightener afterward. Back then, the only place I knew sold the Chi was Bed, Bath & Beyond. Sounds strange doesn't it? So I found the nearest BB&B and shelled out the cash for the Chi and not only is it still kickin', it's still works just as well. 

My devotion to the Chi is a good thing for you and here's why.

When a very kind rep from Misikko.com offered to send me one of their top straighteners, my first question was if I could try it, review it and then offer it as a giveaway.

They said yes.

Not only are we giving away a brand new Hana Professional 1.5" Flat Iron (worth $120!), this package also includes a heat-proof pouch, a sample of the Hana Shine Shield Thermal Protectant, a Hana tote-bag, Heat Proof Silicone Mat & Tin Case.

How much do you love me right now?


Is this exciting stuff or what? And let me tell you.. this is a great straightener. As you read above, I'm partial to the Chi (even though from what I've read in reviews, a lot of people prefer the Hana straightener to the Chi). I do have to say though, whenever my Chi gives out (it will be a sad day) I will definitely be considering a Hana product.

As you can see below, I started off with scraggly and damp hair. The Hana straightener actually has an adjustable temperature dial (5 settings!) which is a great feature. As I'm sure you know, when it comes to hair straighteners, ceramic is the way to go. Ceramic is naturally hygienic, protects color and is less damaging for your hair. The Hana Straightener heated up quickly (an important attribute) and straightened really quickly and efficiently. As I mentioned, my hair was even a little bit damp and it helped dry it while straightening. My hair stayed sleek and straight the rest of the day.
