Hana Professional Flat Iron - Review

As I a told you all I recieved this lovely flat iron from Misikko and they sell some amazing hair tools on their website http://www.misikko.com/


Hana Professional Flat Iron 1"

To begin with, I one I got to try is their Hana Professional Flat Iron 1" which is a light weight, pink colored...cute lovely pink colored iron.


Functional pouch with two sections for cord and the Iron

It comes in this cute, pink case, which is very functional. as it has two compartments inside, that holds both the iron and cord very neatly. The cord is decently long, its 8 ft Salon Swivel.


Adjustable Temperature Dial - 5 Settings from 140-450° F for All Hair Types

The cool thing is this adjustable temparature dial, which has 5 settings and they range from 140 to 450 degrees. They also gave this Hair chart, that clearly mentions which mentions what is the good temparature selection for different type of hair. When you switch on, the light is static and it starts to flicker when the iron is heated. It remains in the same flickering state, the whole time. The iron heats pretty quick, like in 20 to 30 seconds. Also, it does not stops, if runned through damp hair. I did try that...


Floating 1” Plates with curved edges

The plates run through the hair smoothly and they stick to each other very well, so no hair strand is left while ironing. The plate is made of Ceramic, Tourmaline. It just glides beautifully and smoothly.



Hold as per the grooves for easy grip
There are grooves provided for holding the iron. The thumb and index finger rest well on their respective grooves. I find it difficult to work with, if I don't hold it the correct way.


Perfect Grip!!

The portion where my index finger rests, kind of becomes a bit hot, not very hot or unbearable, but yes, it does becomes a little hot.


Wavy Hair asusual

Now, my hair is wavy in texture. Its not coarse or thick. Infact, my each starnd is very thin and very prone to tangling. They are so light weight, that one wind wave and my hair is all over the place, looking frizzy and crappy...I had good hair, but they just get ruined in winter months, thanks to the 24/7 use of home heating system.


Pretty Straight Hair with lowest setting...
I set the iron to minimum heating and with just that I could achieve the above straightened effect. I prefer using less heat and running the iron throug my hair sections multiple times. When I want more stick straight hair, I use high heat and run the iron through hair sections just 2 or 3 times. This iron due to its adjustable heating sysytem, gives me the option to do both, which is cool.

The iron comes with a hair protectant by the name Hana ShineShield Thermal Protectant.
Thats a cool stuff, but I would review that in another post.
I could not think of any con with the product, though I wished it had this Sleep mode function, with which it could automatically switch itself if not in use for long time.

This is a nice affordable product and not to mention that it comes with heat proof pouch and mat. You can see both these products in my preveiw post.

  5. @Rai: Yeah, its nice. I could get this result with just the minimum heat setting!

    @Anon: I have not tried GHD. Its pretty expensive. This is the picture of my hair straightened with minimum heat setting. I did try the higher setting y'de and that did a much beter job, but had no one to clik pictures!!
    Thanks for the comment...highly appreciate:)

    @Amy: Thank you Amy! I use good old Nikon, jst a basic digicam..:)

    @hailey: yeah, $120 is bit high, but they give some cool accessories like heat resistant mat and pouch and stuff. So I think that makes up..:)

  8. @xerin: Yes, high setting did make it more staright. I usually don't use any hair protectant or serum as it makes my hair weigh down very heavily...so I have no option but to use low heat setting...less damage you see...:)

    @Paige: I usually take 10 to 15 minutes, but I have hard tym straightening that hair band which is exactly at back...I am not a very expert..i take tym...:)
