Think Pink: FHI Heat Technique Pink Edition

October is almost over, and yet I have just a few more Breast Cancer Awareness products to feature. Today's is a bit of a splurge, but it's one that I think you'll like a lot. FHI Heat's Technique 1" Styling Iron ($105) is a ceramic iron that allows you to straighten, curl, and flip hair with just one device. Its plates are treated with tourmaline, helping the hair follicle lie smoother—which makes hair look sleeker and shinier than non-ionic heat irons do.

I won't try to pretend that $105 is cheap for a hair iron, but if you spend a lot of time on your hair, it may be worth investing in a tourmaline styling iron. To find out why I like the Technique,

  • It heats up quickly. Really quickly. I used to have a cheapy $10 hair iron from college, and in the mornings I'd plug it in, pour myself some cereal, and chow down while waiting for it to heat up. The Technique, in contrast, is ready to go in about 30 seconds.
  • You can adjust the temperature. I start at the lower settings, but you can customize the heat settings up to 410°.
  • I know it's just a little thing, but this cord easily swivels, so it never tangles. Don't get it twisted. Heh.
  • Finally, it does a great job of straightening, curling, and creating waves. I wind up using mine to get rid of random frizzies, too, and it always looks natural rather than "done." And yes, the ionic technology really does make your hair smoother and shinier—it's not just marketing BS.

FHI Heat is donating $1 from each sale to Pink-Link, an online support center for women affected by breast cancer. At first, I was surprised that only $1 of the retail price of $105 is being donated, but then I found out that the donations are going on for a full year. A lot of irons are sold over a year, so that's potentially a lot of dollars.
