I haven't had the chance to try out many hair products or tools so I was really excited when I was sent Gurin's Flat Iron to give my thoughts on it. I've had my most recent straightener since 2008 and it still worked amazing even though it looked a bit worse for wear so it was totally time for a new one!
When I got this straightener in the mail I loved how it came. It was set in this red silk bag that doubled as a carrying case and it just looked really nice. It wasn't just thrown in the box with the cord tied up. I decided to use it that night because I was due for a night of beauty and just really wanted to play with it.
My hair routine goes a little something like this: I shampoo and condition, set my hair in rollers, sit under my awesome hair dryer for about an hour while I pretend to do work, blow dry the roots as I remove eat roller and then pass the flat iron. This takes me about 2-3 hours, depending on how slow I am, but the results are worth it. I'm able to do this about once a week, usually on a Sunday, and then I'm done dealing with my hair too much for the rest of the week.
Sadly, I was disappointed when trying the Gurin straightener for the first time. The hair straightener started to heat up right away but it didn't do a thing for my strands. I used really small sections of hair , because my hair can be really thick, and I didn't get any kind of result. My hair was still slightly frizzy, bouncy, and nothing was achieved. After trying it on two sections I unplugged and went back to my Babyliss flat iron that has been keeping me sleek and shiny for over six years now.
