The Perfect Straightener? - Irresistible Me Flat Iron Review


Hello All,

I know it's been a little while since I've done a post *sigh* I have a few excuses but you don't want to hear them right?!?

Anyway, this post is going to be all about my new favourite straightener. It is the Diamond Flat Iron and is from an American based company known as Irresistible me. 
Omg this straightener, *moment of silence please* = bomb.com, let me tell you why.



First of all, let's get into the packaging.
The Diamond Flat Iron was packaged beautifully in this very sleek black box. Personally I did not expect it to be this well packaged, in a box that was very classy and well designed. 
Of course, it comes with a manual with all details of the product including safety information and some styling tips. 






The flat iron itself goes all the way up to 450 degrees and literally takes less than 20 seconds to heat up!!! It is also extremely light weight, so no more aching arms whilst straightening your hair (phewwww... - Natural Hair problems lol)

It works so well because it is made of ceramic plates mixed with crushed diamond particles. It is gentle yet so effective because the heated plates give your hair a sleek, shiny look without the use of many products at all. 


The results...

Before - waves and all 




So before I straightened my hair, it was in loose curls that I achieved using my flexi rods. Of course, I am wearing my very trusted Tomistic Hair Extensions in their Peruvian straight. The rain had totally reverted my curls and so I decided to go ahead and straighten it. 

Half way through the straightening process. 




I was pleasantly surprised, I only had to go through my hair once to get it bone straight and it took about 10 minutes to get through my whole head. It was so quick and easy.


After - Look at that sleek press! 


Honestly speaking, I would say this is probably the best flat iron I have ever tried. Your hair will be soft and silky without much effort at all. Hairstylists - this straightener will be your best friend. My hair stays straight for days despite our crazy weather over here in the UK. Retailing for $119 compared to GHD straightener's which are so much more pricey. This flat iron is of a much better quality, plus, just look at how much you will be saving!



Now, allow me to summarise the pro's and cons for you..... 





Pro's
Cons

·         Light weight

·         Heats up extremely fast

·         Glides through hair easily

·         Has a temperature bar

·         For safety reasons, will turn off itself after a long period of time

·         Dual Voltage - (may require an adaptor)

·         Keeps hair straight

·         Makes hair shiny, silky and smooth

·         Gentle on the hair



       

         



N/A







So there you have it, my new all time favourite flat iron. If you are looking to invest in one then this is the one for you. Check out http://www.irresistibleme.com/hair-tools/diamond-hair-styler.html for more info on how you can order this product.

Since this is an American product, and I am based in the UK I did have to buy a simple visitors adaptor from my local Wilko store. It only cost about £2.99 so no worries there :)


And for my Naturalista's.... I am very excited to try this flat iron on my Natural Hair. I am sure it will work amazingly well and get my hair as smooth and straight as ever. However, you all will receive the inside tea on how that goes down next month as part of my Natural Hair series. - I cannot wait.




Make sure you check out Irresistible Me's website: www.irresistibleme.com - I can not tell you how impressed I was with this company, their products and not to talk of their wonderful customer service. 

The hair I am wearing is from: www.tomistichair.com - This hair is so bomb! I have a review coming up but in the meantime you can check out my review on their Peruvian Bodywave Hair here.


XOXO
