Flat Iron Experts Review

If you are like me, you dread the summer time heat when it comes to your hair. The bad thing, summer is right around the corner. I have some of the thickest, driest, lions-mane-like hair. It is naturally frizzy, but the humidity during summer does a real number on it. 
I have tried a large number of straighteners on my hair, and the only one that worked was a white one my mother got me and my sisters to share many years ago when I was about fourteen or fifteen. I loved that straightener, as I wasn't the fuzzy headed girl at school. That straightener lasted several years, until one of my sisters accidentally knocked it off in the bathroom floor one morning, and the other sister walked in half asleep, and stepped on it. It broke. We was some very upset people. After that one, I used several more, and they either straightened it while leaving it frizzy, or took out the frizz, and left the top half still wavy.
So when I had the chance to review some products from the Flat Iron Experts, I was thrilled. I had no idea what I had coming from them, so I was one anxious person for a week (how long it took to arrive here). Friday, I got a box from Flat Iron Experts, and I opened the box to find three awesome products I couldn't wait to try.
I received a Avanti Nano-Titanium and Nano-Ceramic 1-3/8" Infrared Straightener, a Flat Iron Experts Iron Holder, and a bottle of KQC Thermal Shine Spray.

I, for one, thought this straightener would be awesome, just because it looks awesome. It has a digital temperature display, and you can adjust the temperature all the way up to 450 degrees. I use it on 450 degrees, because from previous experiences, I know that temperature works the best on my hair. It's very light weight, and has a really long cord on it, so you don't have to hug the power outlet. 

I found the flat iron holder to be very useful. I remember getting fussed at when I was younger because the heat from the straightener would make the bathroom counter so hot, and it would start to smell weird. My daddy always wanted us to keep a close eye on it so it wouldn't damage the counter, and he was always worried we would walk out of the house, leaving the straightener turned on, and it would catch on fire. With this holder, it's off of the counter, and it has open areas in it, so the heat can escape, and the straightener is made to cut off after thirty minutes of inactivity, which is great for those of you who are often very forgetful.

One thing I have always been skeptical about it is the thermal shine sprays. I always thought, there is no way that can work. Well, the KQC Thermal Shine Spray can be used on wet or dry hair, and I used it on my hair while it was dry. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling like I thought it might would. It's not heavy either. I thought it would probably drench my hair, but it's very light and airy. I don't really like the smell of it, as it smells like men's cologne, and one that I wouldn't exactly like. I used it, then used the Avanti straightener, and I loved the results. I used to have little pieces of hair on the top of my head that would stick straight up in the air when I straightened my hair, but it held them down, and I got several compliments on how great my hair looked compared to normal. Check out the difference.


I highly suggest these three products, and I would suggest using them all together. 
The Avanti Nano-Titanium and Nano-Ceramic Infrared Straightener is $269.99 on the Flat Iron Experts website, but you can get it on sale right now for just $159.99.
The Flat Iron Holder is $14.99, and the KQC Thermal Shine Spray is $15.99.
Don't miss out on these great products, at amazing prices!
