I was contacted not too long ago by a representative from misikko.com. They generously offered to send me one of their favorite hair straighteners for review. The particular model I received was the Hana professional pink edition. At first, I wasn't really compelled to take on another flat iron because I already owned the Revlon Sedu. But, honestly, I was sold when the good folks at misikko generously offered to give a flat iron away to a Relaxed Hair Health reader.
One thing I have to say about this iron is that the package came with more than what I expected. Within it's contents was a rubber-like mat for laying the kana. I can remember burning a mark into my bathroom countertop many moons ago under the hands over an over-heated curling iron. With the mat, I never have to worry about this happening again. Also inside the package were some emory board nail files, a travel size bottle of hand sanitizer, and a 2 oz size "shine shield" serum. The shine serum itself was unbelievable light and contains jojoba oil. At first I though the nail files were kinda odd in a flat iron kit. But after thinking about it for a few seconds, I knew the folks at misikko were contemplating how crucial it is not to have chipping, or splitting nails when you are about to manipulate the hair. Perfectly smooth nails help avoid snagging of the hair on your nails which can lead to unnecessary breakage. The iron also came in it's own pink storing case but I think my favorite accessory of all was the tin box the iron came in. This thing turned out to be the perfect storage device for my eye shadow collection.
The iron itself has multiple temperature settings for optimal control. This thing also heats up in record time. The Hana iron was ultra light and easy to handle. I also love the fact that irons are now evolving to a level where they are able to do their job without inflicting as much damage to the hair as they did in the past thanks to tourmaline technology.
