My hair after using the oh-so-expensive-and-branded flat irons >.<
So far, I love it! It got hot very quickly like in a matter of seconds. My hair lasted the entire day without using any products or such. Only when I put like some serum and milk that it started to curl back again.
I used a lower setting for my hair because my ends are super damaged due to bleaching, coloring, rebonding and heat treatments. And also because I had baby pink (Oh so cute) extensions in my hair! - They are like a dollar each at Far East Plaza, Singapore. Mine was $1.50 because of the color. I hunted with Qiushi, HuiEe and JunXian up and down for this color. HuiEe got hers in purple. Looks subtle and mysterious. Nice.
Anyway back to my flat iron ---- Super fast to use, easy and great! I was watching tutorials on Youtube to learn how to curl hair using a flat iron! Greatness, it really works. I will try them some day but don't want to spoil my straight hair style just yet.
Really thing investing in a good flat iron is worth it. When I get married, I am going to invest in a CHI or a PHI. Lots of hype about this company (Farouk) for their flat irons.
I wonder how my kids' hair would turn out. Curl like mine or straight like his? Hmm. When I was younger, my hair was stick straight. Like wispy and brown - people said I was a japanese doll. Lol. Well, when I got to primary school, it started to become coarse and thick and curly. Beats me. I wish I got mom's naturally wavy hair. Mine's fried and dead.
Overall, the iron looks good while it last.. Design-wise, its pretty good. Althought it can get very hot under the clamps corners. Price-wise, retailing at USD$250 is a little costly for me. Even the CHI cost only liek USD$99. It was on discount so I decided to get Jose Eber instead. Temperatures are adjustable from 180 Degrees to 420 Degrees. It's a good iron I think. At least for now. Comes with a nice box and a lifetime warranty, applicable IF you got the product from the store itself and not some online retailer.
On a side note. I am puzzled with Everyday Minerals email. First it says Pending, then error, then it said Funded. But the website accounts said Shipped. So will I get my minerals OR NOT?
Paid for the sample sizes for 4 Lancome Mascaras already! Can't wait to get my hands on them. 3 Black Mascaras and 1 Primer! Heard they are all very good.
