Between two teenage daughters and myself, we have five flat irons. We've experimented with different ones throughout time and have found that some work better than others. We even have our own differing opinions on which ones we claim to be the best.

Whether you're on the hunt for a Chi Straightener or a Croc Flat Iron, their goal is to help you find the right salon tools and products at the right prices. Misikko even offers free same day shipping on products.
In February I did a review and giveaway for a Hana Professional Flat Iron from Misikko. It's the flat iron I've been using most often ever since receiving it. Thanks to Misikko, I was able to recently review the CHI Silk Infusion and the HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant. I've had both products for almost two months now and have seen a noticeable improvement in my hair since using them.
I will say from firsthand experience that it's important to use thermal serums on your hair when straightening it with a flat iron. My hair turns into a dry, frizzy mess if I don't use a heat protectant on it. It looks like it's been singed instead of straightened. After learning that lesson, I use thermal serums on my hair each and every time a flat iron gets near it.
Both the CHI Silk Infusion and the HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant come in 2 oz bottles. That doesn't seem like much, but it's lasted me through the last two months and I imagine it will last me for many more. Only a very fine amount is needed on the hair each time it's being straightened. At first I was a little surprised that the small bottles cost as much as they do but, after using them on my hair, it's apparent it's not generic formulas. And, as I said, a little goes a long way.
Hana Shine Shield Features:
Lightweight leave-in conditioning therapy
Designed to protect and restore both hair and scalp from environmental and styling stress
Jojoba absorbs quickly without a greasy feel for thorough deep conditioning
Jojoba naturally dissolves soil, removing build-up from other styling products to leave hair clean & supple
Jojoba naturally excels at thickening keratin layers, bringing out your hair's natural color overtones, highlights and brilliance
Periodic use over time is proven to advance the quality of your hair & the health of your scalp
Farouk CHI Silk Infusion Features:
Leave in, alcohol free reconstructing treatment
Enriched with pure natural silk, wheat and soy proteins

Protects the hair against thermal styling and environment
I don't have a preference of one over the other. I switch back and forth between the two and both do well with protecting my hair against the heat elements. Both also give my hair shine and a look of healthiness. I do like the scent of the CHI Silk Infusion better.
One person will win a 2 oz bottle of HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant and a 2 oz bottle of CHI Silk Infusion.
