Review - Flat Iron Experts (Corioliss Flat Iron)

I am a big fan of curling my hair for special events. My hair is thick and naturally straight and wavy with some occasional amazing curls. My sister just straightens the living life out of her hair. Straightening hair has its repercussions if you don't take necessary precautions; using treatments to hydrate your hair, products that are made to protect your hair from heat styling and others. Thanks to Flat Iron Experts, we were able to review one of their flat irons.

We were sent the Corioliss Pro Fix Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron in pink. This flat iron has 1" tourmaline coated ceramic plates which help seal in moisture and eliminate frizz when styling your hair. It uses something called Far Infrared (FIR) which are electromagnetic waves of energy that penetrate the hair shaft allowing it to dry it from the inside out, resulting in less damage to hair and retained moisture.

I occasionally curl my hair for special events, I was extremely surprised to learn that a straightening iron could do that. After viewing the video provided by Flat Iron Experts on the flat iron's product page, it opened up a whole new world to me. I did just as instructed on the video and got some really nice soft curls in. Who knew a flat iron could curl? I sure didn't. My sister, the straightener, proceeded to apply some Hana Shine Shield to protect her hair before heat styling. She straightened her entire head of hair in less than 10min. Something that would take me well over 30min.  She loves that it doesn't dry out or burn her hair. Her hair looked extremely soft and silky after straightening it. After straightening her hair she said, and I quote, "Wow, its not frizzy anymore". lol.

We love the fact that the Corioliss doesn't burn either of our hair and that it heats up very quickly. I have had about 3 weeks to use it and I am very content with the flat iron. I have used it to straighten my little sisters hair as well. She is only 4 and after a quick add of Dove, her hair straightens very quickly. Its not something she gets done daily, just on some rare occasions like family portraits or our picture sessions.

Overall, I love the Corioliss. The only con i find is cosmetic. I am not fond of the color pink, especially the fact that the entire flat iron is in this color. That aside, we have enjoyed it very much. Thanks to Flat Iron Experts for the opportunity to review their product :)
