Do You Really Need Two Straighteners?

February 26, 2012 by  

Some households have all girls in them. Some households have only one girl in them. Either way, most households own a hair straightener to style hair with each day. The trendy hairstyle has been known to be popular with girls but some guys even do it if their hair is long enough. What if you are the only girl in your household and you own two or more hair straighteners? Doesn’t that seem a little ridiculous?

Many people would beg to differ that owning more than one straightener is odd. It’s easy to understand if there were two or three or even four girls in the same household. Each of those girls could have different types of hair (thick, thin, wavy, extremely curly) and each girl may need to use a different straightener. Weird as it may sound, there are households of one girl who owns three hair straighteners. I, myself, am the only daughter left in my house but I own three hair straighteners. Of course I have my favorite flat iron over the others but they all get used just as equally as the other. But is it really necessary to own more than one hair straightener?

More than one straightener in a household of one girl, in my opinion, can be bittersweet. I don’t mind owning three at once, as long as there is room to store each of the other two that aren’t in use. Some girls don’t even use the other straighteners that are in their house; they use the same straightener everyday and let the other(s) lie in the cupboard to collect dust. This is the part that doesn’t seem right in my mind. Why own so many yet only use one; you could get money out of the unused ones!

However, one reason some girls may own more than one flat iron is because one straightener may have a feature that the others don’t. For example, one of my flat irons has a rounded edged plate that makes it easier to curl hair with a straightener. Some girls like to use straighteners to curl their hair instead of an actual curling iron, so this kind of straightener is great for them. Some irons may have higher heat settings also and can therefore straighten better than others. Variety of plate sizes are also a popular reason for multiple straighteners in one household as well.

Whatever your reason may be for owning more than one straightener in your house, it’s not a crime so who cares, carry on! It’s more fun for girls to own more than one of something so they can switch up their look everyday. Even if you’re the only girl/woman in your household, you can find more than one straightener that will help you accomplish perfect looks every single day.
