The Irresistible Me Diamond Styling Iron*

A lot of the time, I consider myself to be doing well if I remember to brush my hair - so when Irresistible Me very kindly sent me their Diamond Professional Styling Iron* to try, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do something a bit different with my hair! They look gorgeous, and are definitely a step up from the somewhat-worse-for-wear GHDs I'd had for eight years - I love that they're bright red.

First things first, you should note that the plug on these straighteners is a US one, but don't let that put you off, as you can pick up adaptors quite cheaply - this one on Amazon is just £1.60! Once that's sorted, it's literally a case of plugging them in and off you go. You hold down the power button for a couple of seconds to turn the straighteners on, and the temperature is then easily adjusted in 10°C increments via an 'up' and 'down' button; all the buttons are on the inside, so you won't knock them whilst using the iron. I've found it heats up to it's maximum temperature of 230°C within about  15 seconds, so there's no hanging round and waiting for them to get going when you're in a rush - I love how quick they are!

This is a dual voltage flat iron, which means it automatically detects the voltage input and adjusts accordingly - so your straighteners are safe to use, wherever you are! The straighteners also very cleverly adjust their temperature units based on the voltage input - so whilst here in the UK, the temperatures are displayed in °C, if you used them in the States for example you'd get °F.
Before and After Diamond Hair Styler
I've been really impressed with how good these are - I have a lot of hair and whilst it's naturally straight-ish (it's actually looking unusually wavy in the 'before' photo on the left above...), it used to take me a good 20 minutes to straighten just because of how much of it there is - whereas with the Diamond Styler, I can easily have my whole head of hair all swishy-sleek and straightened inside ten minutes. The super-smooth plates glide really easily through my hair, and if I section it into around 1" pieces, one run-through is enough - there's no going over and over the same bit, which minimises heat damage as well as saving time!

I love how quick and easy the Diamond Styling Iron is to use, and how my hair looks once I'm done. I don't straighten my hair daily and probably never will, but I have found myself reaching for these two or three times a week. The Diamond Professional Styler is priced at $149 and is currently reduced to just $104 (around £80), available here; if you're in the market for a compact, easy-to-use and high-performance styler with temperature controls, I'd definitely recommend this one! What styling tools do you use? Would you consider Irresistible Me's Diamond Styling Iron?
