I admit it. I abuse my hair. Not only is it super thick and curly, but I also highlight, lowlight, blowdry and flat iron my hair so much that I should be thankful I still have any.
I usually use a CHI iron on my hair so when the folks at Missiko offered to let me review the Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron, I wasn't so sure it would live up to my expectations.
However, I was pleasantly surprised. The Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron is a 1" inch iron unlike my CHI which is 2". Oddly enough, I discovered that I like a 1" iron better! I was able to flat iron my hair closer to my roots and curl the ends under, which would be impossible with my bulkier 2" iron
I also loved that I can adjust the temperature of the Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron to upto 410 degrees and it heats up in just six seconds. Since my hair is so thick and curly, an extremely hot temperature setting is an absolute must! Also, since this iron is ceramic, I don't have to worry about my hair becoming damaged as long as I pass my hair through it quickly. This iron also came with a heat proof pouch so when I crank up the temperature and set it down for a moment, I don't have to worry about the carpet.
I was also sent a bottle of HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant and was amazed. I'm the type of girl who has tried every heat protectant out there and this stuff is top-notch. At $29.99 for 6 oz, it may sound a bit pricy, but a little goes a long way. If that doesn't convince you, think of all the deep conditioning treatments that you won't need if you use a little prevention?
Since this iron is one of the best ones on the market under $100 and I have many frugalistas here at YFF, the wonderful people at Misikko have offered to giveaway a Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron to a lucky reader!
