Those who are close to me know that I'm a major proponent of low maintenance when it comes to hair care and beauty regimen. I do prefer not to spend more then 15 minutes getting ready for work every morning. That includes brushing my teeth, washing my face, inserting my contacts, applying my makeup, and getting dressed. I have received numerous inquiries on my hair care process over the course of having this site, so I wanted to provide some general insight of what my hair care routine encompasses. I use conditioner everyday, and shampoo + condition once a week. My hairstylist is awesome and inexpensive. I generally only get my hair done by her twice a year, and have her trim and texturize my hair (the keyword here is "texturize") all for a measly 25 bucks. With a little dry shampoo and volumizing powder here and there, viola! I achieve the "ooomph" you see in my hair on consistent basis. And believe it or not, I use all drugstore brands. No pricey salon products, although I am certain my hair would turn out immaculate if I did, but I'm pretty staunch on being low maintenance when it comes to spending on hair care products as well.
Which leads to this. When hair care online retail store, Misikko, contacted me about the Hana 1.5" flat iron product, I was pretty stoked. The product was shipped out the same day of communication with all sorts of goodies, including the Hana Shine Shield Thermal Protectant. I generally in the past just used water to straighten out the occasional waves in my hair in the morning, so I have never gotten around to investing in a flat iron. However, the slight waves do tend to return midday. The initial time I tried the product (and subsequent times as well), it literally took me less than 5 minutes to straighten out my hair using the Hana 1.5" flat iron product sent by Misikko. Granted, those who have naturally wavy/curly hair the process may take about 15-20 minutes longer, but this product works wonders and is fast. It also has a wide range of temperature settings and with the Thermal Protectant, it provides an adequate amount of shine. Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked of owning a Hana 1.5" flat iron, and that's coming from a pretty low maintenance gal. Check out the product here.
I apologize for the biographical post today! But hopefully it helped answer some of your (my lovely readers!) questions. Have a wonderful week, y'all!
