Sometimes people are shocked to learn that I have naturally curly hair. I never learned to embrace my curls because they are unruly, frizzy and ugly. I have been straightening my hair since I was about 13, and back then, flat irons weren't as popular as they are today. I'm almost embarrassed to admit, I hated my curls so much, I would take an actual iron (yes, one you use on clothes!) to straighten out my hair. It got the job done, but definitely isn't an ideal method. I'm pretty sure I dried out my hair and singed off a few strands a time or two. Thankfully, my use of hair straightening tools has evolved since then. With my curly hair, I've been through many flat irons over the years. I can tell you, most drugstore brands aren't worth their bargain prices. I always skip the drugstore flat irons and look for a quality iron that won't break the bank. Having 3 girls in my house, I need one that will withstand a lot of use. For the past few weeks, I have been using an EV Beauty Proline Ceramic-Tourmaline Ion Flat Iron. It's the perfect mid-grade flat iron for my families needs!
EV Beauty Proline is a professional-quality flat iron hair straightening tool that lets you effortlessly straighten, curl, flip and volumize your hair. Style your favorite looks without damaging or dangerously drying out your hair, enjoy creating the styles you adore easily.
I was impressed that the flat iron heated up in under a minute. There are multiple heat settings, which start at 140 degrees F go all the way up to 450 degrees F. Easily turn the heat setting wheel to your desired temperature.
The 1" ceramic-tourmaline ion plates glide effortlessly over my hair, so it does not tug or pull, and does not leave crease lines on the hair. I really love that it has a thick, swivel cord so I know it's not going to crease and fray with continued use.
Here are some before and after shots. The first shows my hair just washed and dried naturally. See what I'm working with every day? It isn't pretty. But after using the EV Beauty Proline Ceramic-Tourmaline Flat Iron, my hair was straight, smooth and soft. It took about 2 passes per section to get my hair completely straight.
I still had a few flyaways that I couldn't get down, but I think that's just due to having crummy hair to begin with.
The EV Beauty Proline Ceramic-Tourmaline Flat Iron protects color, seals in natural moisture and eliminates frizz. It has damp to dry versatility for maximized conditioning. It doesn't state it on the box, but I did notice that it does automatically shut off after a period of non-use.

Do you have curly hair? If so, do you embrace those curls or do you flat iron daily, too?
