Misikko - Hana Professional Flat Iron Review & Giveaway



They say first impressions can make you or break you and that presentation is key. If that's the case, Miskko gave a great first impression with their presentation of professional flat irons.


I was given the opportunity to review the Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" - Pink Edition. I couldn't have been more impressed with the packaging itself. It arrived in a box lined with fake rose petals. The included iron mat and storage pouch were tied in pretty bows. The flat iron itself came in a lined tin. It made me feel like I had gotten something exquisite.

Not only did the packaging arrive beautifully, I also received a blank $25 check from the CEO of Hana to help in the spirit of giving. I was given the choice to make the check out to the Haitian relief charity of my choice or to any charity of my choice to help others less fortunate and in need. I was in awe of the generosity that is being given by Hana to help others. That shows true heart and soul. Due to the outpouring of support, Hana's CEO has extended this offer of a blank $25 check with each Hana appliance order until February 28th.


Although the look of the flat iron and accessories and generosity of the CEO had me from the get go, I wanted to see how well the actual flat iron itself worked. It has been put to use numerous times from myself and the two oldest girls.

I have fairly straight hair to begin with but it is frizzy at the ends. This flat iron has done a terrific job of straightening my hair all the way through and giving it a sleek look. I found that it works better when used with the Hana ShineShield, a thermal serum that protects and strengthens hair. I've used my flat iron to straighten my hair all the way through, as well as flip it out at the ends.

My two older daughters have very kinky, wavy hair. They've used cheaper model flat irons in the past and they don't compare. They are able to straighten their hair in a decent amount of time with the Hana Professional 1" Flat Iron and their hair stays straight.

The cord on the flat iron is long enough for me to reach all of my hair without stretching or do someone else's hair without having them practically on top of me. I am also able to straighten my hair when it is completely dry or a little damp. There is an adjustable temperature dial of five settings for all hair types. I like my temperature at a lower setting while the girls like theirs higher. My only complaint, and it's a minor one, is that the on light for the flat iron continuously flashes when it's ready to be used. It can be somewhat distracting.

Hana is not the only brand of hair appliances sold at Misikko. Misikko is a company that chooses the best hair straighteners, ceramic flat irons, hair dryers, and beauty tools in the industry. CHI flat irons for sale can be found, along with Babyliss flat irons and hair dryers.

Win It!
One person will win a Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" - Pink Edition.

I have really thick hair that takes forever to dry so I like the sound of the Farouk CHI Rocket Hair Dryer. Thanks for the chance to win!

lilDdownunder said...

I'd also like to try the FHI Heat Hot Sauce because even with using other conditioning and smoothing products my hair tends to get dried out when I straighten it a lot. Thanks again for the opportunity to win...I'd never be able to spend so much money for a good straightener like all my friends have and with my super thick hair, my cheap one never seems to get it really straight or smooth.
