Flat Irons are a wonderful thing.
fun Fact about Arica: I did not use a flat iron until I had gone to beauty school… well into adulthood! I didn’t understand the beauty of why you would need one or how to use it. Today, I will be sharing my top brands, plus two things I use to get the PERFECT flat ironed look! Hint: it involves thermal protection and shine!
infrashine infrashine Original Medium Flat Iron, 1 inch, Black $149 – ships free with PRIME! Amazon rating is 4.5/5
Ghd 0215 Professional Styler, 2 Inch $203 + 5.99 Shipping – the cord swivels, it is pro grade, will last a long time and turns off after 30 minutes. Reader rating is 4/5. I PERSONALLY use a GHD and absolutely love how quickly it turns on, the quick way I get a smooth look for my hair!
BaByliss Pro – Porcelain Plate Ceramic Flat Iron – 2 inch This is currently on sale right now for $44.99 and free shipping with PRIME! The MSRP is 99.99 so it is a great deal. It also has an Amazon rating of 4.5!
Now, before you even turn on the flat iron I will share my secret:
I initially tried 12 Benefits through my birchbox subscription and absolutely fell in love with it. I spray it all over my hair when it is damp… NOT just dripping right out of the shower! It smooths out hair, creating a great protection from heat. My hair styles quicker when I use it and feels smoother and healthier. YOU MUST PREP ON YOUR HAIR BEFORE YOU FLAT IRON – it will protect your hair and make it look better!
12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment – 6 oz - ships free with PRIME!
This should be the finishing touch for whatever way you choose to style your hair. It creates great shine and is to be sprayed on a dry finished style. The miracle shine spray also is filled with anti-oxidants to protect against the environment.
It’s A 10 miracle shine spray with noni oil 4 fl oz (118 ml) - Free shipping with PRIME!
There you have it! Three flat irons to choose from and now you know how to properly prep and finish your hair for the healthiest look possible!
