My favorite things - Cricket Straightening Iron giveaway!


CLOSED

I'm going to start posting one of my favorite things weekly. Sometimes it will have to do with children, sometimes myself, sometimes my husband! I just want to share all the different products I've come across along the way that I love! We're going to kick off the first "My Favorite Things" with a giveaway. This will not always be the case ;)
My first favorite thing has to do with me. I love styling my hair, something that makes this easier is my straightening iron. I'm not giving away the same one I own, but I can tell you that I have used the Cricket, and love it. I own a CHI iron and love it. I've also used FHI irons and love them. We use all 3 in our salon.

I love my iron, because when I'm on the go, as long as my hair is dry I can iron just the top few sections and make it look smooth for a quick do. I can also use it for a night out and put more work into it when I have more time. Yes, the latter looks a little better, but I like that I can give my hair a quick fix as well. All of the irons I use are ceramic, to me this is a necessity to keep your hair in good condition.

Another necessity is a serum or a protective barrier of some sorts to seal your hair follicle. I will be including in the giveaway one of my favorite barriers, Mop Shaping Serum, the ultimate foundation product. I've found it works best when put in wet hair before blow drying or air drying. Always remember that a little big goes a long way.

For your chance to win a brand new Cricket Straight Crazy Ceramic Straightening Iron and your very own bottle of Mop Shaping Serum, just leave me a comment tell me how much you would love to own them, or visit one of the websites and tell me about something else you would like to try or have tried!

I have wavy hair and sometimes I like to straighten my hair and it's impossible with a hairbrush and hair dryer. This would totally help me get a great look.

I don't own a flat iron even though I live in summer humidity central zone (Ohio)! My stylist uses one on my hair at the salon and I love the results!

I would love that flat iron. I never thought I needed one being that my hair is straight but I went to the hair salon last month for a cut and they styled mine with one and it was like I had a new head of hair. Talk about amazing! I went out that night and received a ton of compliments so now I'm in the market for one and that one looks perfect with the 5 settings. My hair is fine and I was told to look for one with heat settings as the Chi would burn my hair.

Nicole said...

I've never owned a flat iron, but when I get my hair the stylist uses one to style my hair and it always looks great. I would love to try to do it at home too with this iron. Thanks!

Staci said...

I have never owned a straightening iron either, and would love to see how it could make my hair look! I think it'd be fun to try something new (that would hopefully look good)!

I have very curly hair, and I love it. But sometimes I want to straighten my hair for a different look. I don't have a straightener and I know I would use it a lot if I had one. This one looks particularly amazing!
