I’ll admit that I’ve always been a curling iron kinda girl. I bought one flat iron many years ago and only use it whenever the mood strikes me. I honestly bought it a bit too big for my shoulder length hair and I didn’t like the fried feeling it left on my hair. When the got the opportunity to review this 1 inch flat iron from ProSilk, I felt it wouldn’t hurt to give this flat iron thing another go (and give my curling iron a break!) I also used ProSilk’s Silk Serum prior to flat ironing my hair.
The first thing I really liked about this flat iron was that it had a nice velvet cover on top, keeping the heat away from your fingers and making it comfortable to hold. Another plus was the heat control. Instead of having just two settings (Hi and Low) like my other flat iron, you can control the heat in by degrees in temperature. To help you figure out just how hot you need it, the box breaks it down to showing you what temp you should use it on according to your hair type. Once it gets to that temp, it stays there to prevent more overheating. Unlike my curling iron which can take a few minutes to heat up, this flat iron heats up in seconds – another plus for a girl like me who’s pressed for time! I used just the flat iron for a week and loved the way it made my hair feel. It didn’t feel fried and it eliminated the frizziness, as it claimed it would. Though the price point is little steep for me ($79.95), I honestly would save up my pennies and pick it up!
The ProSilk silk serum is a great additon to my evergrowing beauty collection. It smells sweet and gives my hair great shine. It also doesn’t leave my hair greasy. I used it prior to flat ironing and blow drying my hair, as well as a moisturizer when I tie my hair up at night. The pricepoint is also alright with me ($19.95) because a little of it goes a long way! It’s quickly becoming a favorite of mine!
