Misikko Review and Giveaway!

I have gone through countless cheap flat irons over the years. Either they don't work worth beans, don't get hot enough or break after a year or so of use. My hair is naturally just slightly wavy. It is a pain. It is too wavy to be considered straight, but not wavy enough to do anything like cute curls or something. So, I usually just straighten it.

Needless to say I was super excited when Misikko agreed to let me review one of their Flat Irons! Misikko is a leading carrier of Professional Hair Straighteners, and some of the best hair dryers you can buy! They sent me the Corioliss Classic Pro 1" Flat Iron to review!



Corioliss Classic Features:

* Ceramic plates for negative ions and hair-healthy far infrared heat,
creating shiny, frizz-free results
* 1" plate size for easy styling of short to medium length hair
* Straighten, flip or curl
* Heats up in less than 6 seconds
* Adjustable temperature from 140°F to 410°F - great for all hair types
* Convenient on/off switch
* 1 year manufacturer warranty

When I got the box in the mail, I was surprised to see how nicely it was packaged! They had a rose in there and everything!

When I pulled everything out, I had some fun little samples, their Thermal Leave-In Protectant, and the heat proof pouch!



I have to say this is the best Flat Iron I have ever used! It works great! I love that the heat is adjustable, and that it gets so hot! Seriously, one swipe over my hair and it is straight! I wish I would have gotten one of these years ago! Here is a before and after shot, see what I mean?



The thermal protectant was also very nice! It is a Lightweight leave-in conditioning therapy that is designed to protect and restore both hair and scalp from environmental and styling stress. Jojoba absorbs quickly without a greasy feel for thorough deep conditioning, and naturally dissolves soil, removing build-up from other styling products to leave hair clean & supple. It naturally excels at thickening keratin layers, bringing out your hair's natural color overtones, highlights and brilliance. Periodic use over time is proven to advance the quality of your hair & the health of your scalp.

I have to say this stuff worked great as well! My hair felt so soft, and was so shiny!
