Misikko Review and Giveaway




I have never been one to bother mush with my hair.  I was in many sports growing up that required my hair to be our of my way.  I found that just putting it up in a pony tail was fast and easy (and I could sleep longer since I did not have to deal with styling it!), no fuss no muss was my hair motto.

I have what I would categorize as frizzy hair.  It is not straight and not curly, it is in between so it just looks frizzy all the time and it is coarse.  I wish it were straight and soft but I guess it was not meant to be so I just dealt with it and ponied it out of sight.

Last year my friend Jen wanted to experiment on my hair so she brought an old straight Iron into the office.  During our break she showed me how to straighten my hair.  It was amazing how simple she made it look and how great my hair looked straight.

My friend let me keep her old straightener to use (she bought herself a super nice one and didn't need her old one anymore).  I tried it a few time but it took me forever and I noticed that my hair was still not soft and lacked luster.  I would love to upgrade my straightener to one of the CHI straighteners or one of the Croc Flat Irons since my loaner tends to pull my hair.

Two days ago I thought I would give the CHI Silk Infusion a try to see if it would soften my coarse hair.  I put a little into my hand and smoothed it through my hair and was very impressed with how well it worked.  It made my hair soft and did not leave it feeling greasy.
I like to (now that I am a little faster at it!) straighten my hair for special occasions and since I was going on a job interview I wanted to do more than just put my hair in a ponytail.  I wanted it to look nice so I used a little of the CHI Silk Infusion and added some Hana Shine Shield before I straightened it.  I was amazed by the result.  My hair was shiny, straight and soft.  My hair is so soft, I am having a hard time keeping my ponytails in place (not complaining, I LOVE IT!!).
