Hana Titanium Flat Iron: A Review

About a month ago, I was contacted by Misikko and asked to do a review of one of their latest products, the Hana Titanium flat iron! I was really excited about this because I have not bought a new flat iron in about... 4 years. Along with my excitement, I was also a little wary. I've experimented with the expensive flat iron products like Chi in the past and they never live up to the hype. To be frank, I am not a Chi promoter. They just don't work on my hair. I have a poofy texture, so no salon-quality flat iron has ever worked. Or, it has worked, but made my hair paper thin and oily. I'm one of those weirdos who likes a little frizz in my hair, so it's really important that my hair not be plastered to by scalp! 



When I walked outside and ran around the house trying to find which door the UPS guy left my package by, I was surprised to see a big box! The sweet people at Misikko sent lots of extra goodies along with the flat iron! 

After taking these photos, of course, I immediately plugged in the flat iron and tried it out. This particular model is 1.5", so it was an adjustment from my 4-year old 1". Once I got used to the extra iron space and maneuvering a larger tool than I was used to, I loved it! The packaging came with a heat settings guide, too! I have always been confused with the heat settings vs. hair texture/etc. stuff, so having that really helped. Plus, the cord is crazy long! I can walk to the other end of my bathroom and still be plugged in. Awesome!

                              Before                                                      After

Overall, after using the Hana for a few weeks (usually using it for curling, not flattening), I have adjusted to the extra length! I also love how smooth it makes my hair without taking any of the body (and my preferred slight frizz) out! I am really impressed with this product as a whole and am almost ready to toss my old rinky-dink flat iron in the trash. Not quite yet... I'll keep it tucked away for, you know, just in case.

  4. Looks like the straightener does a great job! My hair is similar to yours... it takes me forever to straighten everyday. I'll be curious of your updates on this flat iron!
