I must admit that sometime ago I received this Nume flat iron to try out and give a review on and have been so busy with life, business, and being pregnant that I hadn't gotten a chance to do it. I apologize for the delay and I'm now getting time to do this much needed and deserved review.
As most of you may know, I have naturally coiled curly hair and most of the time I wear it naturally. But I do love mixing it up and getting my hair blown out. I like to wear it blown out mostly in the cold weather months since I don't have to worry about any frizz. That being said, when I received this flat iron I was in between hairstylists (and still am) and was in need of a serious trim. So I waited until I went back home (Chicago) to get my hair trimmed with my amazing hairstylist/aunt.
A few weeks before I received this Vintage Nume Flat Iron, my Chi that I had for almost 5 years MELTED. Yes, you read that right, it MELTED. I don't know what happened or how it happened but it did and I'm glad I caught it before it really got ugly. But back to the real flat iron and super star. This beauty is made of 100% ceramic iron that helps give shine and keeps moisture in the hair's cuticle. It has a temp control dial and heats up in a few seconds so no need to wait around to do your hair. The iron design is curved at the edges to use as a curling iron too. And it comes with a 3-year warranty. How awesome is that?
Let's get down to the real important stuff like how it worked on this SUPER noodle head Glammie. Well, after blow drying my hair and having no products in it, I sectioned my hair and got started. Now I have a lot of hair but it's thin so it took about 15-20 minutes to do it. That might sound like a lot of work to some folks but once I flat iron and style, I won't have to use the iron again for a few days. Most of the time I have to do 1 section of hair twice but with Nume I only had to do the section once. My hair was left so silky smooth and with no flyaways which I hate!
At the time I was working at Sephora and everyone at work thought I had permed my hair or had done Kertain. NOPE it was all done with the Nume Vintage iron that I have now had for a few months and love. I have used it on some clients and they have purchased their own and have thanked me for introducing them to Nume. I highly recommend the Nume Vintage to all my Glammies.
The Vintage is available in three colors purple, pink, and black. $145 Nume was nice enough to share a SURPRISE discount code with my Glammies. Enjoy!
