Today I want to tell you about a flat iron I recently had the chance to try out. It is from Gurin and is a Professional Flat Iron. It is ceramic which we all know is best for our hair, and it is perfect for straightening or flipping the hair out, which is what I use it for. Actually I find my hair seems fuller and has more body when I use the Gurin flat iron.
Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener, 1.25 inch with Carrying Case
I have very baby fine, flat, straight hair, with absolutely no body to it. Below in the photos you will see some before and after photos and you can tell that the iron gives my hair that lift I desperately need.
Before I go on here are some specs from Guirn:
Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener, 1.25 inch with Carrying Case In Stock.
1. Straighten, flip and curl your hair.
2. Adjustable temperature from 240F to 450F (120C - 220C) to suit all hair types.
3. Ceramic/tourmaline plates create a shinier, silkier finish in lesser time.
4. 1.25 inch plate width, wide enough for any hair length and hair types, yet narrow enough for bangs.
5. Transform frizzy, dull hair into gorgeous straight, sleek locks.
These photos are the before and after. All before photos are on top and after are on bottom. You can see how fine my hair is, and the only product I used was some heat protectant. I had brushed my hair in the above (before) photos, but you can still see how ratty my hair looked, especially at the ends! In the after photos you see how much sleeker my hair looks, and it also has more body!
I will admit, I am not one for spending a great deal of time on my hair, so in fairness of the review I felt I should use it the same way I would if I were not reviewing a product. So I spent the same amount of time I normally would on my hair, which was about 10 minutes from the time I turned the iron on to finish. Not long and not amazing results for my hair itself but amazing results for me considering I don't do much with my hair. The iron was good! Also it heated up super fast, the green light in the photo on the left shows it is ready to use. Before it was red.
In the package you will also get an owners manual which has great styling hints, not just info about the iron itself. I thought that was a nice added touch by Gurin!
