I started using hair straightener very late in my life. Say, like a couple of years ago. The reason was that I had dead straight hair. I practically never felt the use of straightener. However, now my hair tells new story every day which makes me wonder how much exposure my hair is getting to the outside world?
I am not a huge fan of using heat in my hair every single day but when I want a very polished and sleek look, then a little heat is acceptable without damaging my hair. I expect a couple of things from flat iron to perform before I consider it to be worthy enough for recommendation. One, it should make my hair straight in, not more than, two swipes using low temperatures. Because my hair is naturally straight and it doesn’t need a lot of heat in a first place. And second, it must not tug or pull my hair and no stuck hair in flat iron.
Irresistible Me diamond professional styling iron is a next-generation digital flat iron which is serving its purpose for last couple of weeks very well. A user friendly, light-weight bright coloured flat iron with floating diamond and tourmaline coated plates. It comes in a sturdy beautiful black box with a magnetic closure.
It is a dual voltage flat iron which means if you travel across the globe, this little buddy is coming with you. It automatically adjusts itself to the available voltage. Also the temperature display adjusts itself to Fahrenheit and Celsius depends on location’s voltage. For me here in UK, it set to Celsius. Flat iron plug is also American style but I already had an adopter so it was not an issue for me. And these converters are not expensive at all.
The digital temperature display is very clear and you can easily tell when adjusting the temperatures. On top side of flat iron, there is a light bar which has three levels. In the cover photo you can see that the temperature of the iron is set to 160 and the green light in the light display tells me that I am on level one. The temperature of this flat iron can reach up to 230o C/450o F. Level 1 is for fine hair, level 2 is for medium hair and level 3 is for thick coarse hair. It heats up in just 15 seconds.
The power button and temperature controlling buttons are placed inside, so you don’t accidentally change the temperature during styling your hair. The 360o mobile cord is another benefit, giving a full mobility. You can use the flat iron in every direction without any worries to be restricted by the cord. The flat iron casing and tip remain pretty cool throughout hair styling.
Let’s talk about the actual styling plates of the flat iron. These plates are very smooth and shiny. Plates are made of ceramic with a coating of tourmaline and diamond particles. Ceramics plates are famous for even distribution of heat so there are no hot and cold spots. Tourmaline and diamond coating helps to eliminate the frizz and makes hair much straighter. Floating plates of flat iron adjust the pressure according to the amount of hair between the plates and no tugging or pulling of hair happens which was my main concern before trying out this particular flat iron. Because it happened to me a lot and lost few strands in the process. I didn’t want to traumatise myself all over again.
Irresistible Me flat iron is quite light-weight. The size of the iron is also very compact, making it perfect for travelling as well. But the compact size doesn’t compromise the straightener’s performance. It works as good as any bulky and large plates flat irons. I really enjoyed the size of it because it gives me a full control over the flat iron and has a perfect size for everyday use. It is exceptionally quick to work with it as well. It took me almost 10 minutes to straight my hair. I didn’t have to go over and over again my hair to get the desire results. And as I mentioned earlier I don’t use hair styling tools every day, it takes me a while to style my hair if I work with tools.
I will highly recommend to check Irresistible Me diamond styling iron, if you are in the market for a new one. It is slightly high in price, costs $149 but this price is very reasonable if you compare it with other expensive brands in terms of performance. I wish it came with a travelling bag or pouch though, where I could pack it securely for travelling. Irresistible Me is a USA based company but they ship everywhere.
