Product Review: Irresistible Me Hair Straighteners*



Every year around this time I start obsessing over my hair. Mainly with the urge to cut it. Cut it all off. This is mainly due to the heat, having long hair in summer sucks, especially when it is as thick as mine.



So I have been looking at hair styles and deciding what I want to do with mine, trying different things with my own hair, pleating, curling, endless options.

My main issue is the thickness of my hair, think normal hair, then times it by about 3, that is mine. So doing anything different or special with it can turn out being a complete nightmare, and just doesn't work thanks to how much hair I actually have.

My hair isn't curly, in fact it is actually really straight, but I do rely heavily on hair straighteners just to reduce the volume of my hair, if left to its own devices - it will just grow to the point of me looking like Patty & Selma from the Simpsons - which is never a good look!

So when Irresistible Me contacted me asking if I would like to try one of their products, I jumped at the chance to try out their hair straighteners.

They also do hair extensions, and other hair tools. One of my lovely blogger friends WellEmma did a post on their Sapphire 8 in 1 Curler, and her hair looked incredible. You can see the post here. But I was scared to try the curlers, maybe save up and go for them next time huh?


Delivery
Blair from the Irresistible Me team posted my straighteners on 30/05/16, they arrived 03/06/16. Yup, that quick. 3 working days, 3! Pretty incredible delivery from the US to the UK, and no custom charges.. YAY!




Looks & Tech
And I must say I am not disappointed. Their sleek red appearance and smooth black box are just stunning - really do not disappoint. their plates are also smooth black and glittery. How beautiful. They have an LED display (to show the temperature) and green lights to indicate when they are ready. Cannot ask for much more looks wise huh?



As for the Tech aspect they do come with the option to change the temperature up to 230 degrees, off and on button, and my personal favourite they will also turn themselves off if left unactive, which pleases the anxious side of me (and my fireman uncle who hates hair straighteners without this function)


First Impressions
My first though was how light and comfortable they are to use, they grip really nicely and the handle just doesn't get hot. I had them up pretty high, (220) and they straightened my hair so quickly, without pulling at it and surprisingly left my hair really really smooth, wasn't quite expecting that. Overall I was really happy with the results, but to me it isn't just the results on day one... its if it manages to hold it for the next 3 days...

Before & After (no makeup selfies are NOT sexy)




Final Results

I am really happy with the end result with these. My hair lasted a full 4 days straight and was tied up using elastics and still no major kinks. I was a committed GHD lover up until this point, but I must admit they are just as good, and if anything the Tech and heat makes them better. Would definitely recommend picking up a pair of these if you are in need of a new pair of straighteners!
Day 2, Day 3 & Day 4

  6. I have a hair straightener in our house but I barely use it because the weather in our country is very humid and I got lazy in fixing my hair so I got it re bonded. Anyway, the hair straightener you bought looks amazing. I love how it perfectly straightens your hair.
