I am excited to share my review of a hair straightener and a hair dryer. PLUS, I am giving one lucky reader the chance to win the hair straightener. Also, check out the picture of the before and after when using the Cricket Ultra Smooth Styling Iron.
The Cricket Ultra Smooth Styling Iron is the first of its kind to feature ceramic coated plates infused with Keratin Protein and Argan Oil.
Keratin Protein provides hair with strength, shine and manageability, and also reduces frizz. Argan Oil hydrates locks and repairs damage, while smoothing the cuticle for a conditioned, healthy finish. The ceramic coated plates provide constant, even heat to minimize damage from heat styling and retain moisture in hair.
The Ultra Smooth Iron also has digital display and automatic shut off after 1 hour of use. It also quickly heats up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and has a 9’ cord to make styling easy.
I was given the opportunity to try the Cricket Ultra Smooth Styling Iron and I thought it was an excellent hair straightener. It glides over my hair easily and never feels like it is pulling on my hair. I love the adjustable temperature (which my current straightener does not have). I can pump up the heat to 400 or 450 and then use it on my daughter’s hair at a much lower temperature. For me, the higher heat gives my hair a straighter look. I definitely think that I get less frizz and more shine using this straightener.
The Centrix Q-Zone Lightweight Dryer is a 1 lb. energy efficient and very quiet dryer that comes with all the different attachments (diffuser, straightening pick, concentrator, plus a power booster for even more power) you need.
This dryer is a fully-loaded, compact version of its popular predecessor, the Q-Zone Dryer, that restores serenity to blow-outs with Insanely Quiet™ technology. This smaller, lighter, high-performance dryer delivers healthy heat at a powerful 50 MPH airspeed; nearly twice that of the leading competitor. Best of all, the Q-Zone Lightweight Dryer barely tips the scales at a lithe one pound, 40% lighter than standard hair dryers.
The Centrix Q-Zone Lightweight Dyer utilizes ceramic tourmaline and ionic technologies, which dry hair in record time, add healthy shine and moisture, and reduce frizz. The dryer’s ergonomically designed frame is equipped with lefty-friendly heat and speed setting controls. Each dryer comes with multiple styling add-ons for versatile styling.
“What I love about the Q-Zone Lightweight is that it has all of the cutting-edge technology that I need to style, plus it’s insanely quiet, which is of the utmost importance when I’m working with my clients.” – Cricket VIP Stylist, Melissa Peverini
I was also given the opportunity to try the Centrix Q-Zone Lightweight Dryer and I loved it! It was so lightweight and ultra quiet, two things I want in a hairdryer. It was also very easy to hold in my hand and has adjustable speed along with adjustable heat temperatures. It’s fantastic!
