While I was thumbing through the Fall edition of Vogue, I read an article about hair being the new makeup. Do you realize what this means, people? It means our hair has to be on point! No pressure, right?
Flat Iron Experts are my go-to hair care people. From hair treatments to hair styling tools, Flat Iron Experts covers every follicle and then some. (They also have a lowest price guarantee, so that's a bonus!)
Flat irons are a girl's best friend. (Right next to diamonds.) Not only can you achieve your super straight look with a flat iron, but you can actually get gorgeous curls with the use of a flat iron. So much so, that I've almost stopped using my curling irons.
I'm ultra picky about my flat iron. The wrong flat iron can fry out your hair, pinch & pull it while you're using it, and leave you feeling jaded.
Let me introduce you to the Cortex Solo 450 Titanium Giraffe Flat Iron / Hair Straightener (1") :

Right out of the box, I was in love. Hello! It's animal print! Of course, this isn't just an aesthetically appealing flat iron.
Cortex Solo 450 Collection is new to the market and made for professionals in the beauty industry. That should speak volumes in itself. It also has an adjustable heat setting that reaches 450 degrees, the hottest on the market. Customized heat control prevents unnecessary damage. For example, when I use my flat iron I don't need a high heat setting. I was not so blessed with baby fine hair. While my daughter, on the other hand, needs the highest heat setting to tame her thick, coarse hair.
Nano Titanium Technology plays another role with this amazing flat iron. What is it & what does it do?
Titanium plates are an exceptional conductor of heat that emits negative ions and far infrared heat.
1. Preserve more moisture within the hair shaft
2. Eliminates frizz and close the cuticle to create smooth and shiny hair3. Causes less damage to the hair cuticle during styling
A little more about the Cortex Solo 450 Collection via Flat Iron Experts:
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.
Far Infrared Heat : Far Infrared (FIR) rays are electro-magnetic waves of energy, totally invisible to the naked eye, capable of penetrating deep into the human body, including the hair shaft. It therefore dries the hair from the inside out. The result is that more moisture remains in the hair shaft and there is less damage to the hair.
Swivel cord, lifetime warranty, heats up in less than 6 seconds, promotes healthier hair and high shine. What more could you want?
Let's see it in action, shall we?
Teenie Queenie has graciously allowed me to use her as my lab rat. She has extremely course, thick, and hard to manage hair. Your standard mass retailer stores do not carry the hair tools needed to tame her mane. But Flat Iron Experts has yet to let us down. Check out the before & after pictures. Winning!
I also have a new bathroom essential. A house for my flat iron!
Flat Iron Experts Iron Holder - $14.99
This is an inexpensive, must have! Suction cups on the bottom allow this holder to stay firmly attached to your sink/vanity area. Never again worry about burning and ruining your counters with your flat iron. (It's also extra insurance that my five year old won't mistakenly touch a too hot flat iron.) I put mine in to hold it while I'm working on different sections of my hair, and even leave it there to cool completely. Seriously, you NEED this!
Of all the things Flat Iron Experts carries, what's the ONE thing you really would love to have?
