One thing I’ve discovered over the years is all hair styling tools are not equal. There is truly a difference between quality levels when it comes to hair tools. In my opinion, you get what you pay for. Especially in the world of flat irons. Over the years I’ve tried a ton of flat irons and they have been a mix of great, good, so-so, bad, and absolutely terrible. Some took forever to heat up, didn’t heat up enough, or felt like they got stuck to my hair. Let me tell you, that is the worst feeling ever. I don’t want to feel like I’m torturing my hair when I flat iron.
My hair is long and healthy and I want to keep it that way. I have fairly thick hair but the hair itself is very fine and fragile. I need a flat iron that truly glides over my hair without sticking or requiring multiple passes. Well, let me introduce you to a great flat iron – I was able to try out the Vibrastrait Pro Series 1″flatiron and Cloud 9 Styling Products c/o of Vibrastrait. Real talk, I really all around liked this flat iron and the results I achieved with it.
The flat iron is truly unique, it heats up 450 degrees in 18 seconds and the plates vibrate. Crazy sounding huh?! I thought it was odd at first but after using it I figured out what the benefits are. Basically, the vibrating plates help to glide the iron across your hair. The benefit is less damage, less passes through the hair, and a smooth finish. If the plates were going to stick, they would have hands down stuck to my hair and they didn’t. That is a big deal for me. I think this iron is great for all hair types but I think it would be especially awesome for thick or unruly hair. If you have coarse hair or really curly hair give this iron a try.
Great tools are made even better with great products. Kind of like wearing a great pair of shoes and a great bag. I always use a heat formulated protecting spray or serum when I flat iron (or use any heat). The Cloud 9 Styling products are excellent for nourishing your hair pre-style, protecting as you style, and keeping the look in place afterward.
The whole collection I tried out is available as a full package of products including the flat iron for $189. You can use code Reinga10 and receive 10% off your purchase of the set or the flat iron. If you order it let me know your thoughts! I would love to hear them!
