Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Styler
My hair is naturally a bit wavy, so I regularly flat iron my hair and have tried a variety of brands over the years. High quality flat irons have ceramic plates (rather than just ceramic-coated) as well as a tourmaline layer on the surface of the plates. Tourmaline is a semi-precious stone that emits negative ions when heated up. Those negative ions counteract the positive ions found in dry or damaged hair (caused by chemicals, electricity, heat, etc), resulting in shiny hair free of frizz and static. I have learned that although tourmaline flat irons are more expensive than ceramic flat irons, they work better overall and are also much better for your hair. When the Irresistible Me team offered me their Diamond Hair Styler to review, I gladly accepted the opportunity to try out this tourmaline professional flat iron. Please read on for photos and my review of this product.
This is my "before" photo. As you can see, my hair is a little wavy naturally. I spray Evo Icon Welder Hot Tool Shaper product into my hair before ironing to protect it from the heat. My initial thoughts after pulling this Diamond Hair Styler out of its box are that it is lightweight and the long swivel cord gives me plenty of room to maneuver. It has 1" plates that are not only coated with tourmaline, but also crushed diamond particles.
When I flat iron my hair, I start by putting the top half of my hair up and working on the bottom under-layer of hair. This flat iron does a great job of straightening sections of hair in one or two sweeps. I was initially concerned that the smaller 1" plates (compared to my other flat iron's 1.5" plates) would result in a longer overall straightening time, but that was not the case.
I also really like that all of the buttons are on the inside of the iron so that you can't accidentally change the settings with your fingers or thumbs while in use. I don't know about you, but I've totally changed temperatures or turned flat irons off before on accident...which is a total pain. This iron prevents me from making those mistakes. You can see the temperature on the digital display at all times, and it automatically switches from Fahrenheit to Celsius depending on the voltage it detects. This is a really nice touch for a frequent traveler like me!
Voila! I worked my way from bottom to top layers of hair in less than ten minutes, which is perfect. With my busy schedule, I don't have time to ever spend more than 10 minutes straightening my hair. My hair is fairly thick, so sometimes when I flat iron my hair I need to repeat sections three or four times because sections are still wavy or frizzy. This Diamond Hair Styler did a great job of straightening each section of hair smoothly and efficiently.
I am very happy with this Diamond Hair Styler and would absolutely recommend it to someone with hair like mine looking for a professional quality flat iron. The pricepoint is very reasonable on this model compared to other similar tourmaline flat irons, and on the product page you can see price comparisons to ghd and NuMe. I hope you found this product review helpful and interesting, and please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions. Thank you for visiting my blog today, and I hope you have a great rest of your week!
