MHD Mini Hair Straightener Review: The Smallest Iron I’ve Ever Seen!

Last update: Dec 29, 2016 10:54, Trina

Who would refuse perfectly straight shiny hair or light airy curls? That’s why it was very important for me to find a hair straightener that attracts both, with excellent functionality and absolute protection of my hair. After long reflections and searching, I paid attention to the model of the well-known MHD. The combination of compact size and popular tourmaline coating plates were really tempting, so I thought; why not try to take advantage of this modern item?

First Impression

The design of this hair straightener for someone might seem too strict, but overall it is quite original and simple – there is nothing excess in it. Golden plates against the background of the classic black exterior look particularly bright and rather unusual compared to commonly black, gray or dark red plates, used in other models.

The shell of the straightener is made of a special anti-slip plastic, it’s gently curved in the upper part of the body providing a comfortable grip; thanks to these features the use of the tool is very simple and safe. In addition, the device is quite compact  – it is only 15 cm long that is especially convenient for girls who are accustomed to looking perfect even while traveling. I also like how the plates are the traditional rectangular shape. This device fits easily into even a small bag and you can afford perfect styling each time you want! Now then, I think it is necessary to switch on the device and see how it actually works.


From the very beginning, my attention was attracted to its very simple switch. The button is equipped with a LED indicator allowing you to determine whether the device is off or on. So, when the backlight is lit, you just have to wait a little bit. It should be mention that the plates of this model heat up very quickly. The device is ready for use within two minutes after you switch it on! The maximum heat you may obtain is 180C (356F), that on one hand allows you to protect the hair from excessive moisture loss, but on the other hand it is hard to straighten if your hair is really thick, long and heavy. However, I’m not one of these girls, so I was happy with what the creation of the tool and what it could do for my hair type; it providing me with different hairstyles with less effort.

The main thing is that I admired at how silky and smooth my hair has become. Obviously, it’s all about the tourmaline coating. Would you like to learn more about that? – Well, I’m happy to disclose some interesting facts for you!

Tourmaline in nature is a gem with unique properties. Physical experiments have shown that when it’s heated it forms a plurality of negatively charged ions, which prompted the creators of hairdressing tools to provide tourmaline coating over the ceramic plates. It turned out that tourmaline can cope with static electricity, protecting strands from drying out and perfectly smoothing the scales of hair. However, let’s leave aside the scientific terms – I saw the results with my own eyes! My hair was fixed as a solid shining waterfall, allowed me to realize that this is the most luxurious styling tools I have ever had!

In addition, due to the small size this model copes with tasks such as creating brilliant volume, but not too steep curls. All you need is to clamp a section of your hair between the plates, holding the device vertically, wind it around the plates completely and carefully – and you will have a charming wave in no time at all! So, I used the MHD next day, preparing myself for a hot date and I was thrilled with the results. However, if you want to achieve tight springy curls, this may not be the right device for you; it is better to use curling irons or larger flat irons.

While admiring my reflection in the mirror, I turned off the straightener and prepared to wait at least half an hour to cool them down completely to get them back into the box. It turned out that I underestimated this wonderful device! After five minutes, I touched the plate and found that it was been already cool. That is especially useful if you need to tidy your hair being away from home!

By the way, I forgot to mention something else. In spite of a quite compact size of this tool, the cord length is 1.8 meters! Even if you don’t have a power point socket right next to your dressing table, you may be able to find somewhere further away and still straighten your hair comfortably. However, I haven’t faced such a problem, but for future buyers, I can confirm the MHD is effective in almost any circumstances!

Summing Up

Would I buy this device again if I had the choice? Like anything, this straightener has advantages as well as disadvantages, so I will share my honest opinion with you.

I WOULD buy this MHD hair straightener if:

  • I need a compact and simple device.
  • I like to look flawless every day.
  • I like to travel and need a light and portable tool.
  • I am often in a hurry and needed to freshen up my look very quickly.
  • I care about the health of my hair.

However, there are reasons why it’s worth to think about buying another device.

I WOULDN’T buy this MHD hair straightener if:

  • I had very thick and wavy hair;
  • I had very long hair that is difficult and tiresome to be tamed with small plates.

The MHD hair straightener is perfect for active girls carefully watching their everyday looks. This stylish, convenient and effective device will always take care of the beauty of the hair. This straightener will be my faithful companion!
