For those of you who are females, I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of bad hair days. I’m sorry….we’ve all had them and if you’re anything like me, you’ve probaly had quite a few, lol. I mean, when it comes to styling my hair, I am not the most talented and learning to use a flat iron took me some time. Luckily for me, I have a family full of hairstylists who kept me looking beautiful. But since all good things come to an end, I had to learn how to use every styling tool available if I didn’t want to go around looking like a “hot mess”. It was quite interesting but it became a breeze overtime. I’ve tried out a few irons over the years and can say that some are definitely better than others. When it comes to purchasing professional hair straighteners, you definitely get what you pay for.
Just recently, I had the opportunity to try out the Corioliss Classic Pro Flat Iron from Missiko. When the box arrived , I was pleasantly surprised when I opened it. The presentation was very appealing . I was really surprised at how it was packaged. Not only did it include my flat iron with accessories, it also included some soap flowers for a bubble bath, decorative ribbon and a nice thermal pouch for storing the iron. I’m all about presentation, so this was a very nice touch.
For those of you who don’t know, flat irons are more than just hair straighteners. They can be used to curl the hair and add waves also. It’s a really great styling tool. I have used it to create several hairstyles but for the purpose of this review, I will only show you its straightening capabilities.
Here is my slightly curly hair before…..
And then my hair after using the Corioliss Pro…….
The iron was very easy to use and it only took 1-2 passes over my hair to get it straight. It felt good on my hair and easily glided down effortlessly. Getting the iron heated and ready to go took only a few seconds. I love the fact that you can control the temperature setting yourself. The temperature can be set anywhere from 140°F – 410°F. I used a very low setting the first time and it worked great. With a little more heat, I’m sure it would have taken me even less time to complete the process.
The Corioliss Classic Pro is a 1″ ceramic flat iron that uses 35 watts, which I think makes it very energy efficient. The ceramic plates and far infrared heat helps to leave you with shiny, frizz-free hair. It also comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty which is always good. You can purchase the Corioliss Classic Pro for $89.99 from Misikko.
Misikko also carries a large variety of other styling products for your hair including some of the best hair dryers around like the CHI Professional Pink Dryer Limited Edition or the T3 Tourmaline Evolution Dryer.
Misikko has offered to send to one of my readers their very own 1″ Corioliss Classic Pro valued at $89.99
