Beautiful hair needs an expert: Hana Professional 1" Flat Iron


If you've been following my blog, then you all know that I'm a hairstylist and was taught the proper way to flat iron hair during my apprenticeship at Vidal Sassoon. I own about six flat irons- a few of which I bought while in cosmetology school and a few more when I'd started apprenticing. Right now I'm using the Hana Professional 1" Ceramic Flat Iron and I'm loving it! First I love the fact that the ceramic plates are infused with tourmaline, so I can count on an even distribution of heat and a smooth finish with lots of shine. And because I'm always doing my hair on the go (which means I'm wrapping up a hot flat iron and throwing it in my bag- dangerous, I know!) I'm loving the fact that this comes with a heat proof storage pouch and a heat proof silicone mat. And by now we know how important a temperature dial is! I've said this before- not everyone can flat iron their hair on the same temperature setting, without causing damage. This includes a temperature dial, allowing you to set the temperature based on your hair's texture and needs. This is perfect for the jet-setting Beyonce and I recommend it for you!

Any questions?

This is the 2nd review I see on the Hana flat iron - thats a good sign. I've been looking for a new flat iron since mine is about 4 years old and I feel it's outdated :)

What products do you recommend to have the best flat iron results? Is there a particular heat protection product you put on your tresses prior to flat ironing?

THX!

To "bonafidelatina": Oh good! Invest in a really good flat iron- your hair will love you for it!

Here's what I've used in the past:

- Kerastase Oleo-Relax
- Kerastase Elixir Oleo-Relax
- BioSilk Thermal Shield
- CHI Silk Infusion™ - Reconstructing Complex
- Elasta QP Silk
- FHI Heat Hot Sauce

Right now I'm using Giovanni's VITAPRO FUSION™ Protective Moisture
Leave-In Hair Treatment with PureOrganic Technology. I'd been wanting to try Giovanni products for a while now- based on "Dominican Enigma's" suggestion.

So I bought the Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Shampoo, 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Calming Conditioner, and the leave-in treatment.

So far so good... I'll write a post in a few weeks on it.

To Anonymous: Maybe you should also consider a new flat iron? Also, I wouldn't suggest using it everyday, due to the fact that it could cause damage. Products I'd recommend are as follows:

- Kerastase Oleo-Relax
- Kerastase Elixir Oleo-Relax
- BioSilk Thermal Shield
- CHI Silk Infusion™ - Reconstructing Complex
- Elasta QP Silk
- FHI Heat Hot Sauce

Thanks!
