I received the HANA Professional Flat Iron 1.5″ from Misikko a few weeks ago. I’ve used it a few times and I’m really impressed. My hair is relatively course, very thick (as in, VERY thick), slightly colour-damaged so it is frizzy, but it is naturally relatively straight. I didn’t think I needed a hair straightener but I was definitely wrong.
What it claims (from Misikko.com): Dedicated to high ceramic content and top of the line components, Hana’s pursuit of high tech styling without hype led to the Hana Professional Flat Iron – Advanced Fusion Molding delivers glass-smooth ceramic-tourmaline plates while acccelerated negative ion output repairs hair follicles, sealing in natural oils for a conditioned, sleek, salon shine that lasts all day. With professional features like damp-to-dry styling, floating plates that self adjust to different textures and adjustable temperature, the Hana Professional hair straightener is engineered to deliver luxury at a down to earth price.
Damage: $129.99USD with free shipping to Canada and the United States and comes with a two-year warranty
The good: This product was extremely easy to use. Not only does it heat up within 10-20 seconds, it requires very minimal effort to glide through your hair. I’ve tried other flat irons and they all required you to go over the same strand of hair over and over again for there to be some straightening effect, but this was very quick and easy to get straight, sleek hair. I also love the packaging that they provided, the pouch was perfect to contain the long cord and also for easy to storage. The heat-proof silicone mat is also convenient as it ensures you don’t burn your counter top. The swivel cord was also a treat to use as it made sure the cord stayed untangled when I was moving the flat iron around my head. The product itself is very well made and feels durable. The effects also seem more long lasting compared to some other flat irons I’ve used where my hair would go back to its original state after a night’s sleep; this would last me until my next wash!
- Easy to use, minimal effort
- Quick heating
- Nice packaging
- Well-made, durable
- Convenient and useful swivel cord, pouch and heat-proof mat
- Hair is very sleek, straight
- The result is long lasting
The bad: Nothing really. The price is a little steep, but you end up saving a ton of time in the mornings using this rather than other branded flat irons; it is also not as expensive as some other high-end brands with similar specifications.
- Price is a little high
Overall: I love this product! I usually cheap out on hair products so I used a drugstore brand flat iron before, but this has made me appreciate why some products are priced the way they are. I highly recommend this flat iron, even if you do already have mostly straight hair like me, you can always use some more sleek-ness in your life!
Ease of Use: 5/5
Overall: 32.5/35 | A+
Repurchase? If this one ever breaks down… which I don’t think it will!
