Reader Review: Misikko and Hana Elite Flat Iron

So I already received myHana Elite hair straightener from Misikko. It is FABULOUS! Thanks again!

My thoughts on the Misikko Hana Elite 100% ceramic flat iron:

Fantastic! It comes in an adorable tin box and has a nice case to keep it in. This straightener heats up so quickly and is safe to use on damp hair! I LOVE LOVE the heat-proof travel pouch (such a good idea!!), I usually was on the run and couldn’t put it back in my bag for fear it would melt something! The tourmaline infused into the heating elements helps protect my hair from thermal damage, and I can really see the difference already between this and my old flat iron. My hair doesn’t feel all dried out and damaged after straightening with this Misikko Hana Elite flat iron! The cord swivels so it doesn’t get all tangled while you style, and it straightens so beautifully on the first stroke. The ergonomic handle is very comfortable to hold and I also had great success curling my hair with this! This is well worth the money for a sleek wonderful hair style! Thank you so much to Erin @Makeherup AND to Misikko for such a wonderful opportunity to try it! I love it and am recommending it to all my friends! Thank you!

Hana Elite Flat Iron 1″ – 100% Ceramic

Of the hundreds of flat irons available in the market you can categorize them down to Titanium (or other metals), Metal Alloy Coated in Ceramic, 100% Ceramic. 100% Ceramic is the only material that will generate results better than Titanium while also providing the highest level of hair damage protection.

The Hana Elite Flat Iron is 100% true, solid ceramic. This means it will never peel or chip to expose hair to damaging metal – it also means Hana can include large ceramic heaters that cover the entire plates for the best possible heat distribution and retention. As the pros know, the secret to ceramic hair straightening

is in the ceramic technology itself – and Hana focuses on bringing you the best flat iron money can buy. (Compare to the other pure ceramic flat irons on the market today.)

The Hana Elite is now available in a new 1.5″ model for thicker/longer hair types – the FIRST and ONLY pure ceramic plate flat iron in the world to be available in a wide plate size!

* 100% Solid Ceramic Plates Never Peel or Degrade
