Do you remember the makeover in the film Pretty (see her transformation here) In addition to a massive wardrobe upgrade, Julia Roberts also trades in her frizzy, wild hair for a smooth, sophisticated hairstyle. Unfortunately, in the summer I generally look more like Julia’s “before” than her “after.” Humidity, chlorine and salt combine to make my hair… unruly. Plus, it’s curly (but not the cute kind of curly), over processed, and constantly in need of a trim!
Fighting with my hair can be a bit discouraging. And, I admit that I often just scrape it all back into a ponytail and call it a day. In fact, taming my mane has been a challenge since I was a little girl. But recently, I found a new tool that helps tremendously. The Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron Hair Straightener is a professional-grade straightener that helps control and smooth my often unmanageable locks. And, just in time! This summer, “stealth wealth” inspired sleek low ponies and simple up-dos are the looks I most admire.
I’ve used flat irons in the past, with limited success. But, the Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron is different because it has adjustable temperature settings, from 240F to 450F. The ability to match heat to hair type makes all of the difference and transforms my frizzy, dull hair into gorgeous straight locks. And, the solid ceramic plates and coils maintain an even temperature – no more hot spots or (worse!) scorched strands.
The ceramic plates also create a shinier, silkier finish. Plus, they heat up quickly and allow you to straighten is less time, which translates into far less heat damage for hair.
The straightener is easy to use. A 1 inch plate means I can use it on my whole head. It’s great for my long hair, but it’s also narrow enough for shorter styles or even for bangs.
And, unlike the inexpensive straightener I’ve been using, the Gurin Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron has a unique grip with a truly ergonomic design for an better hold. This is especially appreciated since my hair is so long, reaching around back can be tricky (no more dropping my straightener in the sink or burning my neck!). Retail on Amazon is only $59.99.
