Stopping by a hair salon is probably the only way for most ladies to get a killer blowout, perfect waves, or droolworthy curls. We all dread when it’s time to shampoo again because we’ll be back to square one – dull, lifeless locks. A great hair styling tool is a must for those who dream of salon-calibre results at home. You can create smooth & sleek styles, shiny curls or beachy waves using a flat iron – it’s super quick & easy and the curls last for ages! You guys know the drill, I’ve spoken about it on the blog before and also filmed a video on how you can create beautiful curls using only a hair straightener.
This is definitely one of those situations where I wish I was a blog reader, not a blogger. I am very excited to be doing this giveaway, not only because I am a hair tool fiend but also because I love Paul Mitchell products. You guys know how much I adore the Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press Thermal Protection Hairspray – I started using it about a year ago and it was love at first spritz. If you would like to read more about why I love their heat protectant spray so much, take a look at this blog post. I recently also discovered the Paul Mitchell Spray Wax and I’m obsessed, but more on that in another blog post.
As you probably know, March 2015 is my blog’s birthday month – we’re celebrating 2 glorious years filled with happy moments, meeting new friends (yep, I see each and every single one of you as a friend), great opportunities and of course blood, sweat & tears too!
I am extremely lucky (and very thankful) to have readers who are so friendly and supportive. I am also very grateful for the relationships I have built with amazing brands over the past 2 years – one of which, is Retail Box. If you have been following my blog for a while now, you will know I love purchasing my hair care goodies from their online store. Their prices are unbeatable, they stock a rather impressive range of beauty products (hair, makeup and nails), they have epic sales every now & again AND they recently started stocking theBalm makeup products.
I have been dying to get my hands on one of these Paul Mitchell Neuro products ever since they were launched in South Africa towards the end of last year – today, though, I am giving 1 Neuro Smooth Hair Straightener away to 1 lucky Pink Peonies blog reader. I haven’t had the pleasure of testing one of the Neuro products out just yet, but if the quality is anything like their styling products, then I have no doubt you will LOVE this prize. Trust me, I will be very jealous of the prize winner! Don’t worry, though, I only took photos of the prize for this blog post & after that the flat iron went straight back into the box to be sent off to the winner next week.
This hair straightener is a beaut – sleek, smooth and so classy. The Neuro Smooth features an ultra-sensitive SmartSense microchip that monitors the temperature 50 times per second to ensure even heat distribution at all times. Inexpensive plates often don’t heat up evenly, which means that they smooth your hair in some places but neglect others. As a result, you are forced to run the iron over the same section 3 or 4 times, ultimately causing heat damage that will lead to hair breakage. You can avoid excessive heat damage by investing in a flat iron that heats up uniformly (like the Neuro Smooth), so you can smooth an entire section of hair in just a single swipe. The Paul Mitchell Neuro Smooth has got you covered – it really is a unique hair styling tool!
PAUL MITCHELL NEURO SMOOTH FEATURES:
♥ Adjustable temperature control – this is great as it means this hair tool is suitable for all hair types! You are able to lower the temperature if you have fine hair or increase the temperature if you have frizzy & coarse hair.
♥ Heats up to 450˚F (230˚C) in 30 seconds – super fast!
♥ Features 1.25″ premium IsoTherm titanium plates. Titanium is a lightweight, low-density lustrous metal that offers high temperature stability. Compared to ceramic, titanium can heat up much faster, while distributing the heat evenly throughout the surface of the hair. It also has a higher ionic charge that keeps the hair smooth and shiny – a sleek ‘do in fewer passes. Also, the silver mirrored plates look oh so fab!
♥ SmartSense microchip for lightning-fast heat recovery – this means your flat iron won’t lose heat, the temperature will remain constant.
♥ Auto shut-off can be customised – this is a total game changer for me as I have been known to leave my hair straightener on at home. Eeeek!
♥ Cushioned plates with beveled edges – this means you are able to create curls and waves without any demarcation marks.
♥ 2,7m swivel cord – love this as the cord won’t get all tangled up.
♥ Exterior LCD display that displays the set temperature and allows for you to easily make adjustments to fit your specific needs.
