We all love that “just left the salon” look when we have our hair done don’t we? When I have my hair cut my hairdresser always straightens my hair to perfection, leaving it silky smooth and shiny. Despite my best efforts I’d never been able to achieve the same results…until I tried the Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Styler. The flat iron is so easy to use and heats up incredibly quickly – 230C in under 15 seconds! Irresistible Me is a US company so the straighteners have an American plug, but I bought an adapter for less than £5 from Argos and it works perfectly!
It’s dual voltage and changes automatically depending on where you are in the world. The digital temperature display also changes between Celsius and Fahrenheit depending on the supplied voltage. The design is sleek and stylish (red just happens to be my favourite colour!) and it’s very lightweight, so it’s ideal for taking on your travels.
The buttons are on the inside so you don’t accidentally change the temperature or turn it off when using it. You can adjust the heat to suit according to your hair type. The extra long 360° cord swivels around so it won’t get twisted and tangled as you move. It shuts down automatically in 30 minutes and comes in a beautifully designed box with magnetic closing that you can use to store it in.
To be honest, I’m not well-practised when it comes to using straighteners, mainly because when I tried in the past it was with cheap ones that just dried my hair without actually straightening it. With the first sweep of the Diamond flat iron I knew immediately that my technique wasn’t to blame – I just hadn’t been using the right tool.
The 1” floating plate self-adjusts, eliminating any pressure points so that the flat iron can work through your hair smoothly without pulling. I transformed my hair from fluffy to straight and sleek in around five minutes. The tourmaline-infused ceramic floating plates, which are coated with crushed diamonds, produce infra-red heat that’s less damaging to hair than regular heat. The diamond and tourmaline technology protects hair, helping to retain all the natural hair oils, colour and moisture. The styling will last longer against air humidity and everyday stress.
I first used the straighteners the day before a very early flight to Madrid (post on that trip to come soon) so I wanted my hair to still look smooth when I got up in the middle of the night. To my amazement it stayed shiny and straight all the next day, even after sleeping on the plane and spending a day at an amusement park in incredible heat. I went out to dinner that evening without having to wash my hair…more time for eating and drinking!
I am so happy with the Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Styler and don’t know how I managed without it now! What are your favourite hair styling tools? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @thestylesplash 🙂
