Misikko Professional Styling Tools & Beauty Product Flat Iron Review & Giveaway 2/21 CLOSED

Finding flat irons that work and last is really a hard endeavor.  My daughter and I both have curly hair and have burned through our share of hot irons.  You name it, we've tried it and have learned that you really have to do your research to get a high quality, dependable flat iron if you want longevity and results.  To date, we settled on Chi Flat Iron (Misikko sells) as that was the one iron we could trust to last without burning out fast.  We also are fans of the FHI Flat Irons.

I was very pleased when Misikko offered an opportunity to review a complimentary Hana Professional Flat Iron and provide a giveaway for one of their professional flat irons.

About Misikko:

Misikko is located just outside Philadelphia and has been in business for five years.  Their goal is to provide the newest innovations in the hair and beauty business that delivers high quality results.  They are customer focused enough that if you learn of a new product, they welcome your information.  They even provide assistance if you don't know which product to purchase by either calling or e-mailing them.

The Hana Flat Iron:

This was an amazing hot iron package to recieve.  It comes with a free iron mat and for those of you that have burned counter tops, you will recognize how important this is!   The storage pouch will be a nice feature to travel with and to store it when I'm not using it.  Misikko even provided some cute Valentine's Day freebies and the Hana Shine Shield that protects hair from the heat.   I can definitely say that I was impressed with the product and the delivery of the whole package.  It is obvious that Misikko cares about their customers and goes the extra mile to make each one feel special.

The iron heats up fast and the cool light up blue dial switch is a nice feature that makes you feel it's higher quality if appearance is something you strive for.  My daughter and I both used the Hana Flat Iron and both liked it.  I liked it more than she did as one of the features is it can provide a curl at the ends if you want that.  She thought it was too much curl but I think in time when she gets used to it, she will be able to control the ends better. 

Before and After Pictures

Her hair was brushed in the before picture and it's usually much curlier and it's very thick so it takes her a long time to straighten her hair.  As you can see in the after picture, her hair is smooth and shiny.

For my hair, I usually dry it first to help the straightening process.  I used the Hana Shine Shield first, dried it with a large tooth brush and then used the Hana Flat Iron on it.  I liked how I could easily curl the ends and have not found a flat iron I could do that without having a straight lines through it.  This was very smooth, easy to use and I liked how my hand fit the form fitting handle with ease and how it didn't burn me if I touched the end wrong. 


Overall, I would highly recommend the Hana Flat Iron for all types of hair since you can control the heat level.  It's high quality, backed by a two year warranty and is easy to use.  The Hana Shine Shield also left my hair soft and shiny.

KQC Professional Mini X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron Review & Giveaway CLOSED WINNER

Thanks to everyone who entered!

Ever heard of Flat Iron Experts?  They are a company out of Vancouver BC that researches and reviews the latest flat iron products.  They have so many different brands to choose from which include insightful feedback from customers.  Flat irons are just a segment of the products they offer to look your best.  Other products include hairdryers, hot rollers, clippers, hair care, make up and more.  They also offer free shipping to US/CAN on orders over $75 (CAD).

The KQC brand is the fastest growing manufacturer of personal care electrical appliances.  For more information on KQC, click here to read more at FlatIronExperts.com.

Flat Iron Experts provided the new KQC X-Heat Mini Ceramic Travel Flat Iron for my daughter's review.  She has ultra thick, curly hair and literally burns through other irons like nothing.  It takes a really durable hair straightener to finish her hair without spending four or five hours on it.  As the name implies, it is a travel iron so the smaller size is not suitable for big projects.  The picture I have of her below doesn't show the real depth of her hair as it's been dried with a hair dryer and brushed out.  Normally, she has really BIG hair!



Here are the details on the flat iron:

X-Heat Technology by KQC is a unique system that softens hair faster, seals in cuticles and locks in hair colour. Achieve a healthy, silky professional finish without the static electricity and frizzles of conventional technology. The X-Heat Mini is a upgraded version of our popular KQC Mini, the X-Heat Mini is a more heavy duty universal voltage travel iron, heating up to 410 F compare to the 400 F the regular mini. The KQC X-Heat Mini will give you ultra fast and beautiful results.

Ceramic Technology: KQC's Ceramic Flat Iron plates are able to distribute heat across the entire surface evenly, retains heat more efficiently, and eliminates damaging hot spots. Ceramic plates radiates far-infrared heat to preserve more moisture within the hair shaft and causes less damage to the hair cuticle. It also emits negative ions, which eliminate static electricity and deliver shinier and sleeker results.

Negative Ion Technology: Negative ions are atoms that can stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, etc., resulting in healthier hair and scalp. Negative ion energy is powerful enough to break apart clusters of water molecules. The smaller water molecules penetrate into the hair shaft by slipping between the cuticles, adding plumpness/volume to hair. The bombardment of negative ions also closes the hair cuticle, which is very good for the health and appearance of the hair.

The pro's:

  1. Excellent for traveling or stashing away in a purse for those times when you might need a quick touch up.  I love this concept as there have been many times where my fine, curly hair is attacked by humidity and needed a touch up.  I have used it multiple times already on my hair and have been very happy with the results. The picture here is her after using it for a touch up.

  2. It's perfect for short or fine hair.  If you straighten your little girl's hair, this is ideal as it's small and easy to maneuver around.

  3. Dual voltages to use anywhere in the world which for me is nice as I occasionally travel internationally.

  4. Heats up fast.

Overall, I recommend the KQC Professional Mini X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron for those with fine or short hair to include children's hair.  For those with long, full or extra curly hair, I'd stick with the bigger irons such as the KQC X-Heat Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron which is ranked number one and backed with 100% confidence by Flat Iron Experts.
