Let me say first that this post is long overdue and I whole-heartedly apologize to the LOVELY folks at Misikko for graciously sending me the amazing HANA Professional Flat Iron pictured below. A few months ago, I received an email from the owner of Misikko offering to send me a flat iron to try out. The deal was that if I liked my new hair tool, I would spread the word. So, here I am, months later, spreading the word. (Recovering from ankle surgery made me a little late in posting this review, but please know that my tardiness should not take away from how much I love my new flat iron.)
I want to first say that I adore blogging and do it solely for my love of writing. The fact that I have made some amazing friendships through keeping a blog and reading others is just the icing on top. When I first got the email from Misikko, I was delighted, but - honestly - I was unsure. The last thing I would ever want to do is accept something in exchange for a review and then feel obligated to say something that didn't represent my true feelings.
Luckily for me, my worries were for nothing because as soon as I whipped my new toy out of the box (which was loaded with flowers, goodies and beauty samples), I knew I was in love. It is, by far, the best flat iron I've ever tried. And, let me tell you, it is not easy for a flat iron to win me over because I identify with having wavy and sometimes even curly hair. (I'm sure this has something to do with the fact that my mom permed my hair twice a year EVERY year from the time I was five until I could tell her where to shove those spiral rods... Love you, Mama.) Even when I get my hair done at the salon (you know Globe is the only place I take these tresses), I ask them not to use the flat iron because I want to leave recognizing myself. This iron, however, changed everything. For one of the first times ever, I looked in the mirror and loved seeing myself with straight hair. It was fantastic. I wasn't the only one who loved my new tool, however. You see, the weekend I first tried out my HANA iron, my sister and best friend were in town and wanted in on the (hair) action. Let me tell you, they absolutely LOVED it. In fact, they have been bugging me ever since to give my present to them. Um, I'm sorry, but no.
(Look how happy!)
