Folica Review and Giveaway!


My hair used to be really long. Then, when I was pregnant with my daughter, in an irrational hormonal spree, I got it cut really short. Not super short, but still, too short to do anything with. Now, it's finally grown out pretty long, and I am SO excited! I can finally style it with curls, straighten it, and blow it dry with a style. This is why I was so ecstatic when Folica gave me the opportunity to review two of their great hair styling products. They sent me the Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic TGR 4000i Hair Dryer and the Amika 1.5" Ceramic Styler (in Zebra print, it's so fun!).

The Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic TGR Hair Dryer worked like a charm. Normally I can't blow dry my hair fully dry during the fall and winter months because my hair gets dry and staticky, yet with this hair dryer, my hair stayed smooth and I could tell the moisture didn't get sucked out of my hair as it dried. I am in LOVE with this hair dryer. Not only did it do everything it says that it does, but it also did so quickly and quietly! I can not recommend this hair dryer enough, that's how much I love it. I have fully blown my hair dry everyday since receiving it because how much better it works than my previous hair dryer. Now, on to the next fabulous product!

Since my sister knows even more than me about hair styling products, she helped me out with this review. Plus, her hair is REALLY long, so she made for a great model! Normally, she has wavy hair, and she told me that she normally never straightens her hair since she hasn't found a straightener that she really likes. However, wait until you see and hear about the results...

My sister said that normally it takes her at least 20 minutes to straighten her hair, yet with the Amika 1.5" Ceramic Styler it took less than 7 minutes, which she said was enough to convince her to straighten her hair everyday if she had one like it. Some of the bonus perks of this hair tool are that the grippers on the outside of the straightener really help in holding it, and the outside of the tool stays cool while the inside heats up. The ceramic plates heated up in less than one minute, which is great for busy mornings. Her hair (as you can see in the pictures) was left shiny, soft, and silky after using the straightener. All in all, we both highly recommend this product! I love how my hair felt softer than it's ever felt after I straightened mine!


I seriously can not recommend these products enough, that is how much they helped this busy mom! Now, I know you guys want to hear about how to win the Amika 1.5" Ceramic Styler now right!? All you have to do is enter now! The winner will receive the Amika Ceramic Styler in hot pink.
