My ten year old daughter is to me perfection. I look at her red hair and its cascading waves and I see beauty. She looks at that same hair and while she is satisfied with her color ( I think) her natural texture has made her prone to fits of feeling less than about her appearance. Believe me I know I am not the first, nor the last mother to attempt to tackle this battle of the hair- but I've always tried to lead by example. I am a curly girl- and while I had a brief love affair with a Brazilian blowout treatment it was short-lived and am now back to my all natural curls. I CANT beat what mother nature has graced me with and so, despite others who have told me to keep on trucking with another $600 Brazilian treatment I figure the best possible thing I can do for my wallet, sanity and for my daughter is to show her how proud I am of what nature has given me.
But she's 10. and has not yet been able to conquer and listen to her inner voice- she is still battling all the outside noise- from media, peers and just regular tween angst that is imploring her that straight and silky is best/. I cant argue at this point so we've been on a HUNT for a styling tool that will do the job and by that I mean one that will not required me to spend two hours every morning attempting to straighten her hair. I want a tool that SHE CAN use on her own–thast will make her feel good about the end result and will require ABSOLUTELY no cajoling on my part. And I believe we've found that product in the AMIKA (I KNOW I AM GIDDY!!!).
And who better to share her experience than my sweet lil tween herself– check out her AMika video
A few key features of the AMIKA Red Pulse Action Styler System
Turn on the tiny pulse generator and feel the vibrations penetrating the hair, going straight to the root! In just one stroke, you get faster and more thorough styling action. There is less need to go over the same sections of hair, which means a healthier and faster styling experience. The Pulse Action Stylers vibrations send Infrared waves through the hair surface directly to the root. This preserves hairs moisture and reduces drying out of hair.
The Pulse Action Styler creates electric wave pulses that, combined with infrared heat technology make for faster and healthier styling. The Ceramic plates of the Pulse Action Styler are extra smooth for incredible glide. The micro-pulse technology helps the hair gently glide between the plates without pulling or snagging.
