December 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When it comes to shopping for a hair straightener there is a lot to consider. So many different types of straighteners, plate types, brand names, and different features that it can be confusing to try and figure out which one is right for you. And when you read the product websites, of course they are always going to tell you excellent things about their own products. How can you find an impartial opinion about hair irons? That’s easy, in order to get an impartial opinion about hair irons, you should read different hair straightener reviews.

You will find hair straightener reviews on a variety of web sites that specialize in hair products and hair styles. You can also do a search on the internet for hair iron reviews and see what turns up. When you are reading reviews however, be sure to keep in mind that not all reviews will be useful. You should look for hair straightener reviews that have been written by actual consumers, instead of product representatives in order to get a more impartial opinion about the iron.

Another thing to keep in mind about hair iron reviews is to try and find reviews that offer pictures of the person reviewing or a description of what their hair is like. This is important because if the reviewer has a hair type that is close to yours, the review will apply to you a bit more. Its one thing for someone with fine, thin hair to be reviewing an iron, but it may not relate to you if you have thick, coarse African American hair. It’s an added bonus if the reviewer has a hair type that is similar to yours.

Another thing to remember is that there are usually a few drawbacks to a product. Be wary of hair straightener reviews that are over the top positive. While it is absolutely possible for someone to be so pleased with a product that they have nothing negative to say, it might be an indication that a company representative has written the review.

Another very important thing to keep in mind is that just like anything else, hair straightener reviews are subjective. So it is usually a good idea to read a few different reviews in order to get a fair view of a product. Do not be put off if you read one negative review, the reviewer may be biased or had a uniquely bad experience. Try and read as many reviews as you can and then make your decision based on the majority.

Hair straightener reviews are an excellent way to get a feel for a product from the viewpoint of an actual user. Someone who can try out all of the features and apply it to their own hair, instead of just reading about it on a box. So when you are trying to decide which hair iron to buy, try to seek out a variety of hair straightener reviews before making a decision.

What the Pros Use

When you walk into the hair salon, all of the hair stylists have their stations set up with the various tools of the trade, and cords running everywhere. But what hair tools do they have on those stations. No one usually gives it much thought, you simply sit in the chair, let your stylist get down to business and leave with a beautiful head of hair. But there are many things at work to get your hair looking that beautiful; not least of all are the tools that your stylist uses to create those stunning hair styles.

Taking a closer look at what is on those hair stations you will find a wide range of products, but there is one thing that every single hair stylist’s station has in common. They all use high quality hair tools. And you should expect nothing less from a hair stylist. If you walk into a salon and see a low quality metal plate hair straightener, run out of there fast!

So what does a hair stylist look for in a quality hair tool? That’s an excellent question, because obviously you want what the professionals use so you too can have stunning hair at home. Let’s start with the hair dryer. Hair stylists are usually in a hurry, they have a lot of clients to see and they need each one looking their best – quickly.

An ionic hair dryer is usually the dryer of choice because of the use of negative ions. Negative ions penetrate the hair shaft and dry the hair from the inside out, instead of the outside – in, like other hair dryers. The result is that hair dries quicker which means that stylists can move on to the next phase of styling faster and as an added bonus, your hair is exposed to the heat for a much shorter period, which means you won’t experience damage.

When it comes to hair straighteners, this is probably one of the most popular tools for most stylists right now so they need a high quality tool that will stand up to repetitive use and provide the best shine and finish to each clients hair.

The number one thing that stylists look for in a hair straightener is ceramic plates. Because many stylists leave their irons on for long periods, the ceramic plates will hold the heat, keeping the temperature consistent for the entire period. You don’t have to worry about the plates cooling off, or getting hot spots.

Another popular feature in hair straighteners right now is the use of silver or Nanosilver technology in the plates. This fairly new technology utilizes the power of natural antibacterial elements which actually fight the bacteria and germs that can collect on your hair straightener and your hair. This is perfect for a salon environment where tools are being used on multiple people.

Tourmaline is also a very popular feature for hair straighteners because the tourmaline infuses each hair, closing the cuticle and making the hair look shiny, healthy and beautiful. Which is ultimately what the hair stylist wants for each client.

So now that you know what the pros are using, what’s stopping you from enjoying the same benefits for your hair at home?
