Straighten, Flip, and Curl

When I was a kid, I always love having long hair even though Mama  wanted me to have a short hair.  I would cry whenever  she would tell me that I need to have a hair cut.  It's funny though that when I grow up, Mama wanted me to have a long hair and I preferred short.  Aside from having a long hair, I always wished  to have a  curly hair as well.  We  did not have resources to get fancy stuff, we did not even have TV at home.  Despite of the lack of material things though, we were very happy because we have the most loving parents in the world.

What my mother would do since we can't afford to pay someone to curl my hair, she would take some of the stem from cassava leaves and  use it to curl my  hair over night so the next day my hair would be curly, she did those on special occasions only.  I remember, when my father's sister, who is a beautician,  visited us, she  curled my hair using the  real stuff.  Mama said that I slept that night  with my face buried on the pillow because I thought that sleeping with my hair tucked in would straighten it out.  Lol, what a memory.

Anyhow, I am so fortunate to have given the opportunity to  try and review  one of the  ceramic  styling iron from Flat Iron Experts.  They sent me  this KQC X-Heat  professional 1" plate width iron that has the capacity to leave your hair  silky smooth.  With this iron, I can have wavy hair whenever I want to since I have a straight hair.   Having a curly hair is easy with this  ceramic iron.  All you have to do is  straighten your hair first, then flip it with a twist of your wrist, and voila, you have the curl that you want.  It enhances hair shine , reduces frizz, and it softens the hair.
I have an existing flat iron but  it is getting old that it  is shocking me sometimes.  This one heats up easy and does not shock me at all, so I like it a lot.  Aside from the flat iron, they also sent me a bottle of thermal shine spray, and a stand to hold the  flat iron.  Thanks a  lot Flat Iron Experts.

  26. I so want to try a styling wand. My hair is naturally wavy and so to curl it I have to straighten and then curl. This looks like I could get my natural hair under control without having to straighten it.

  27. You look fab with permed hair, Rose. I dream of having one too. But I would have love it more if I get that item all for free in exchange for a fairly good review ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ahaha. I remember something from my childhood. My mother used the stem from the cassava leaves to have my hair curled too. Too bad for me, because after my hair was curled, it didn't get back to straight again and until to this very day, my hair is curly. It just get straight when I have the chance to rebond it.

    But, for those who does not have a sensitive hair like you do, this product is really good. ♥
