Ceramic is naturally hygienic, protects color & retards fading - Yes, i completely agree, my hair was so shiny after i finished.
Adjustable Temperature Dial - 5 Settings from 140-450° F for All Hair Types - I felt like the lower temperatures did not heat up, and the real heat was felt when it was at 450 degrees, that may just be a personal preference of mine though.
Smooth Grooves Keep Hair Strands Separate and Snag-Free - this is something I LOVE about this straightener, my hair hasn't snagged once.
Sleek luxury matte finish - it feels like it is really well made and good quality.
Includes Luxe Heat Proof Storage Pouch, Heat Proof Silicone Mat, & Special Edition Tin Case - i LOVED the heat mat, such a clever idea, and it helped the straightener not slide around on my counter top.
Bottom Line- Top performance and unparalleled protection make the HANA Elite the most advanced flat iron in the world.- most advanced? eh thats a little much, but it is pretty amazing.
I was so impressed by the Misikko company itself, here are some things that I like that are off their website:
professional flat irons
Chi hair straightener
Corioliss flat iron
best flat iron
When I first got my box from Misikko.com I opened it and was so impressed by the packaging, so here are a few pictures of the Hana Elite I recieved.
this is the carrying pouch for the Hana.
this is the heat mat.
the precious free gift they threw in.
the shine shield, this stuff is amaazing
and finally the straightener.
I will upload before and after pics shortly, i just need to find my camera.:).
Ultimately, i really loved this straightener, but not for the instanious results, but rather for how long my hair stayed very straight and smooth, and my volume was not sucked out and my hair did not look dead or flat. so ultimately, i would give this straightener 4 1/2 stars. :).
