Well, it's quite apparent to people who know me or have read my past posts that pin straight hair is absolutely my go-to-hairstyle mainly because its easy to do, takes the least amount of time and lasts all the way to the next time I wash my hair. That being said, I love straighteners and absolutely love knowing about a new straightener on the block, like the Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Straightener* from Irresistibleme.com! I first tried out this one about a week and a half ago and I've already used it everytime I've straightened my hair since.
A little bit about my hair to begin with - It is fine, naturally straight and doesn't have a ton of natural volume. Now you might wonder why I straighten my hair if it's already naturally straight? Well, even my naturally straight hair has a lot of kinks and waves at the ends and to accurately put it, it's actually a little wavy. In order to look put together for an event or a special day, I definitely need to straighten my hair. Having fine hair makes me face a major problem that is unwanted frizz especially in the warmer months so I wanted to see how this straightener faired in that department.
The design is sleek, light weight and the cord is pretty long which I love. The short cords on hair straighteners really bug me because when I go to hotel rooms or even in the other rooms, there isn't a plug point near the dressers and a short cord(in that situation) means straightening without a mirror aka disaster. The shape of it is very modern and I love the pretty red colour! What I love the most about this straightener is the temperature control. The black screen shows you the temperature you're using it at and the buttons below can be used to control it. It says clearly on the card that comes along with it to use a temperature according to your hair type. Having fine hair means a lot of easy damage so I decided to straighten at 130 degrees which is the lowest setting and can go up to 480 degrees I believe.
It gave me pin straight hair at 130 degrees by running it only once throughout my entire hair while I usually go over my strands twice/thrice with other straighteners I've used. You know how with some other straighteners without the temperature control, hair feels quite hot to touch after you've just done a section? At 130 degrees, my hair cooled down instantly and still had a perfect straight look. It helped a lot with the frizz except some baby hairs at the top of my head but then again I'm fine with that. I was all about straightening with the least amount of damage. It also looked visibly shiny! Overall, I'm a big fan of these straighteners and I wouldn't say so if I didn't enjoy using them so much. They retail at $149 on their website/amazon and I think for the price, it's a very good quality product. It's so much better to use something that's going to cause minimum damage to your hair if using heat is a part of your routine.
