GASP: I don't own a straightener

Four scores and seven years ago, HANA sent me a blow-dryer. Ok ok, it was actually last August or September, I can’t remember which because I was living in a sublet apartment, waiting for our crazy builder to finish our house. We were arguing like crazy with said builder, nothing out of the ordinary I assure you, but thank goodness for our realtor who helped ease that burden. 

But back to the blow-dryer. Brian from Misakko sent me this glorious, powerful, shiny black blow-dryer. And I have to say, it’s really helped me out in the hair department. Despite the pictures I post to social media, my hair is actually a crazy fro. It’s super thick, wavy, frizzy, and well, just big. Which is ok with me, because I love love love big Texas hair. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to take care of. Or straighten for that matter.

Enter big, powerful blow-dryer. Oh my wonderful, it’s made a huge difference. It cuts blow-drying time in half. I can blow out my hair out in 30 minutes now, v. the 45-50 minutes it once took me to straighten my hair with a regular ol’ blow-dryer.

One might ask, why you don’t use a straightener. Just like the title of this post, I don't even own one. But I actually prefer my hair voluminous with body, and Not super straight like a board. And straighteners ravage my coarse hair in no time, so I really have to be careful. This makes it even more important for my blow-dryer to be awesome and get those hairs straight real fast. I love this blow-dryer so much, it’s become a travel essential despite its large size and hair drying prowess.  See all the places I've taken Hana this year! 

Hana at my house 

Hana made it to Vegas. Duh. 

Hana in New York

Hana in Baltimore 

Hana most definitely made it to Coachella 

Hana in Costa Rica!!!! What what. I never actually used it, but I had to take it ya know what I mean?! 

So there you have it. This girl loves her some Hana. I've tried the straightener and hope to try the curling iron one day. And a shout out to Brian for the sweet box of goodies he sent my way. 

P.S. This is my first sponsored post ever. Glad I finally faced my fear, oh you know a year later. But better late than never, and all opinions are truly my own. :) 

Tata lovas!!
