*This post, which features the Diamond Hair Styler from Irresistible Me, was gifted to me for an honest product review
About 8 or more years ago, I began the transition from chemically treated hair to natural hair. Although it wasn’t easy, I don’t have any regrets. I love my natural curls. That doesn’t mean I don’t get tired of them from time to time though. I have a LOT of hair as I’m sure you can tell. When it’s in its natural state, it’s even more difficult to deal with because it’s super thick and very curly. Most people don’t know this, but I do my hair myself. For years, I went to a Dominican stylist. Although I still visit her from time to time, it made more sense for me to do my hair on my own. After growing up watching my mother and aunts roller set their hair, I learned how to roller set mine at a young age. Whenever I want to wear my hair straight, I roller set it, sit under the dryer for an hour and then straighten it with a flat iron. Since I’m not skilled with using a blow dryer, I don’t attempt to do blow outs. In order for me to achieve the same effect of a blow out, it’s very important for me to have a phenomenal flat iron. Enter the Diamond Hair Styler from Irresistible Me.
Because I have so much hair, I typically use a wide flat iron. My first impression of the Diamond Hair Styler was that it was way too narrow. After pulling it out of the box (which is very beautifully packaged), I thought to myself, “It’s going to take me FOREVER to do all of this hair with that little thing”. In spite of that, I plugged it in. I had read in the instruction manual that the Diamond Hair Styler has 3 heat intensity settings. The manual also provides a guide for which setting you should use based on the thickness of your hair. Since my hair is pretty thick, I went all the way to #3. I found it so cool that there’s a window that shows what temperature you have the flat iron set to. So not only do you have 3 settings, but you also get the benefit of knowing what temperature you’re using on your hair. This flat iron heats up SO fast it’s not even funny. I normally have to wait a few minutes for my flat iron to heat up. The Diamond Hair Styler literally heats up to it’s maximum temperature in seconds! I have to admit, I was nervous. I have been using the same flat iron for years and didn’t want to run the risk of possibly burning my hair off. Therefore, I proceeded with caution. After doing a test on a small patch of my hair, I was very pleasantly surprised! Where I would normally have to go over my hair at least twice to get it really straight, there was no need to do that with the Diamond Hair Styler. It took me no longer than my normal time to do my whole head and my hair felt a lot silkier than it normally does. I absolutely LOVED the results!
Here they are:
Pricing for the Diamond Hair Styler starts at $149. I would definitely say the price is well worth the quality that you get with this product. I LOVE it! Check out other products from Irresistible Me on their website at http://www.irresistibleme.com.
