Cricket Fights Breast Cancer, One Tool at a Time (Review and Giveaway)

Enter the Hangout

About 1 in 8 women in the United States (between 12 and 13%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime (breastcancer.org). Pink has become a universal color in support of breast cancer research. If you see products on the market that are pink or display the pink ribbon usually it means that part of the proceeds help fund organizations doing their part to fight breast cancer.

With October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Cricket a leading beauty and hair care company that caters to meeting the needs of professional hair stylists, is doing their part by providing consumers with pink hair products. A portion of the proceeds from these pink hair products will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Pink Scroll Mini Friction Free Flat Iron

This pretty, palm-sized iron makes as much of a fashion statement on your dresser as it does on your hair. Ceramic tourmaline plates reduce friction damage and ensure an ultra smooth finish while the built in comb guide detangles hair, taming every strand.

Retails for $29.99

Visit folica.com for more information on Cricket’s pink hair care products.

My hair is frizzy, thick and very hard to tame. I have also noticed that my frizz and waves have increased over time, making it even harder for me to manage my hair. When I had the opportunity to try out a Cricket Mini Flat Iron I jumped at the chance. I’ve always wanted to own a flat iron (the one I used is their regular mini flat iron and not the pink one).

This flat iron is small and cute. It even fits in my purse and would be great to use while traveling. I thought that I would need a bigger flat iron in order to be able to really get my thick hair strait but this one worked just fine and it only took about 10 minutes to get through the frizziest parts of my hair. My sister-in-law is a professional hair stylist and she told me that Cricket is a great brand. I trust her judgement and agree that she is right.

You can see for yourself how well this Cricket Mini Flat Iron works by viewing my before and after shots.
