April 9, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

One mistake so many women make when they begin using a hair iron to straighten their hair is to turn the temperature setting on the iron to its maximum level. Many feel that the higher the heat the more effective the iron will be. To some degree this is true but that is not the only thing you need to consider when setting the heat on your variable temperature hair iron such as the Babyliss pro flat iron.

Some hair irons have an upper limit of approximately 200 degrees while others may go all the way up to the area of 400 degrees. Yes, the higher the temperature setting the better job the iron will do straightening your hair and the longer that style will stay locked into your tresses. But for those with damaged or thin hair this high temperature can be devastating to the health of your hair and cause excessive damage. Most women should consider setting the temperature of the iron in the mid to low levels and use them at this setting. With time and experience with your hair iron you will learn your hairstyle and know whether this is effective for you. If it is not than you can start moving the temperature setting up a little at a time until you find the optimal one for you.
