Straight Hair

This may come as a surprise, but I’ve been wearing my hair straight a lot lately. I almost always wear it curly because it gives my hair more volume. When I use a flat iron, I typically experience these two problems: 
1. It takes forever because I have to keep going over the same section of hair to get it straight; and
2. The flat iron gets hot enough (a plus), but when I’m done, my hair is almost too straight, which makes it feel flat and thin.
When the lovely folks at sent me a HANA Salon Pro 1″ flat iron to try, the first thing I noticed was how quickly it straightened all of my hair (the way my hair stylist does it) without robbing it of volume. I thought maybe I was just having an amazing hair day, so I’ve been testing it out for the past month to be sure. I’m still loving it. 
To most of us, a flat iron is a flat iron, but if you’re in the market for something better, head over to and check out their professional hair straighteners. (I believe they’re having a Labor Day Blowout Sale, too! Wahoo!)
Enjoy your weekend!

    Great post! My hair is naturally pretty straight and only have to flat iron the pieces around my face. Love your hair straight!

  2. New reader here (love your blog!). I was wondering if you've ever used a GHD, and if so how does this new straightener compare for you? I have naturally wavy hair and I get how straightening it robs it of volume, but the GHD is the only straightener I've ever found that actually gets the frizz out of my hair. Anyone, thanks for your awesome blog!!
