Princess has been blessed with naturally curly hair that is super springy. She takes after her dad which is wonderful until it’s time for to put her hair up for ballet or she wants a change. I grew up using a curling iron but bought a very inexpensive flat iron as an adult. I rarely do much with my hair but really want my daughter to be more confident in her skills. I will be teaching her how to use a flat iron hair straightener to achieve a variety of hairstyles more easily.
We will be using a Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron to see if we can straighten Princess’ super curly hair. I started out by plugging the flat iron in and turning it on to low. While the flat iron heated up Princess brushed through her hair.
Here are our tips for using a flat iron:
1. Plug in the flat iron and turn on LOW
2. Be sure your hair is brushed out with no tangles.
3. Start with a small section of hair in the flat iron
4. Turn the temp up if hair doesn’t starighten after 2 attempts.
5. Keep the flat iron moving so you don’t scorch the hair
6. Have fun with your new do!
I really liked that this Gurin Flat Iron has an adjustable temperature range from 240F to 450F (120C – 220C) to suit all hair types. This really makes it nice that you can use it on thin or thick hair. I like temporary hair-do changes that require little to no skill. I am a very plain Jane kinda gal so this tool is just right for us.
