Last month i ordered my first ever flat iron and after a couple of days i got it delivered. Let me tell you that i never used iron onto my hair before as i was very much scared of burning them, but finally decided to buy one so that i can give slight touch up to my hair whenever i am going to any parties or function. It was really a tough job to select a iron which suits my hair type. I have naturally wavy, fine and silky hair. After a lot of research i finally decided to go for Solia Ceramic 1″-3/4″ inch Flat Iron which was within my budget, it cost me $55 and around $7 for shipping. Here are couple of snaps of my Solia Flat Iron.
I Loved the package, Iron was in a sliding box which is cool to keep in. You will get a free Folica heat proof pouch in which you can keep your iron only after it is completely cooled.
After so much of research, ordering and getting it delivered i was very much excited to unbox and try it. But wait, when i opened it i was disappointed by the look and finishing of Solia. It looked like its not the new one instead looked like its been recycled. Oh what a pain!! Below are the pics in which you can clearly see the finishing of the iron. I don’t know whether all Solia Flat irons are of this quality but mine is bit disappointing when it comes to its looks.
Ok now here comes the close look where you can see its finishing quality.
Well apart from its looks which is the only negative point about it, its a good flat iron and i like it too. It made my hair really straight, smooth and shiny. It takes only 20-30 seconds to heat up and blink when ready to use. The wire is long enough to handle and this Flat iron has floating plates which will not snag/catch your hair and gives you nice finish.
In addition to the free heat proof pouch i also got John Frieda sample pack of Full body shampoo, conditioner and Deep repair conditioner.
