I love experimenting with my hair and deviate from super curly or soft waves to poker straight hair from week to week.

I was born with straight sleek hair that turned curly at 13 with hormonal changes; the exact same thing happened to my Mum so I suppose bizarrely both straight and curly are natural styles for my hair!

I have always had long hair too and can’t ever remember it not being long. My Mum said I was born with lots of hair, never lost any as a baby and had long hair by 3 (below)! It only looks a little wavy here as I had it in plaits the night before!

This is all my own hair too by the way ( I do sometimes get asked), no hair extensions, just thick locks prone to frizz without lots of silky serum!

Here I am with a wavy style where I’d blow dried it with brushes and set with hairspray…

Then it was time to wash and sample my gifted Nava straighteners…

Nava Straightener-Honest Mum

With a quick wash with Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner and lots of hair serum (loving this Primark Hask Argan Oil one) it was time to towel dry then blow dry through.

Once nearly but not 100% completely dry, I brushed through my hair using a GB Kent & Sons (Royal Warrant) hairbrush then set to getting the straighteners on and hot. I went for full heat. You can adjust the temperature though with a nifty dial taking you from 140F to 450F depending on your hair type.

The Nava straighteners provide a great outer grip (and I love the hot pink shade they come in) so you don’t even need a brush when straightening your hair, giving you more control.

What I love most about them though, is the volume they apply to your hair, I don’t like the flat look some straighteners can give you but these are perfect at volumising, offering you a more natural straightened look!

Plus my locks were left silky smooth-these are powerful yet gentle straighteners that are kind and gentle to your hair. My hair didn’t feel dried out by the end of the treatment and I was so pleased with the end result!

Time wise, I have a lot of hair so it took 35 minutes but that is still a whole 10 minutes less than a blow dry with brushes and it stayed straight for days!

Et voila-my straight hair style!

I’d go as far as to say they are the best straighteners I’ve used! And what’s more, when I spritzed my hair through with a fair bit of water on my straightened locks a few days later, I got sleek curly blow-dry look sans frizz! Genius!

    My old hair straigthener just broke down. Honestly, I seldom heard of Nava but based on your experience with it, it certainly looks like a good candidate to consider. I’d love to try this as my new hair straightener

  2. Holly Boyd

    My hair is at an awkward length and the only way to make me look normal is to use straighteners. I keep borrowing my sisters but she lives a 10 minute drive away so not the easiest to use of a morning.

  3. Hannah Whitling

    I have really long hair and really need a straightener so I can get it properly straight as it dries with the kinks in it from leaning on it while it’s stll damp, my old ones broke and I haven’t been able to replace them yet , hence many bad hair days!!

  4. jessica newman

    My last set of straighteners broke last year and i never replaved them and miss having super straight hair so i’d love to win

  5. Courtney Roberts

    I currently don’t own any straighteners, so this would make an excellent replacement!

  6. eloise mccarthy

    I’d like to win as I have that horrible hair that could be classed as wavy except it ‘waves’ in different directions – I also suffer the dreaded frizzy look when I’m in humid situations – I have yet to find a pair of straighteners that work for me (and that includes ghd’s!)

  7. Tobys proud mummy

    I would love to win them as I dont have a pair and often being a busy mum on the run my hair is just tied back would love to feel glam

  8. Julie Ward

    For grandaughter she has long hair, mine is so short I couldn’t use them

  9. trevor linvell

    My girlfriend would love a new pair of straighteners and i would love to win them for her

  10. Kerry Locke

    With naturally thick curly hair – I always want to straighten it out for nights on the town

  11. Kim Styles

    my daughter has straighteners that are cheap and are probably damaging her hair- I would love for her to be able to use a good quality product such as Nava because she is only a teenager and I want her to keep her hair healthy

  12. Lene Ovenstone

    I would like to win these hair straighteners because my old ones aren’t working as well as they used to and to be honest I could really do with winning a new set, plus it’ll make a great xmas prezzie for myself 🙂 Great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win these.
