Use a Ceramic Curling Iron To Create Sexy Curls

February 5, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Curls are sexy, and if you’ve been blessed with naturally curly hair, you should appreciate how lucky you are. For those of us with straight hair, it is always nice to try something else out from time to time, and beautiful flowing curls are a nice change from your typical straight style.

When it comes to creating beautiful curls you don’t have to commit yourself to a perm that will damage your hair and leave you with a permanent head of curls. After all, you probably want to mix it up a bit. And sure, you could use a head of hot rollers to create your curls. But who wants to walk around with a head full of plastic for hours? If you want an easy and effective way to create beautiful curls, all you need is a professional curling iron.

When I tell you that you need a professional curling iron, I don’t mean that you need to spend thousands of dollars on a hair tool. What I mean is you must choose a quality curling iron that will get the job done without damaging your hair. A ceramic curling iron is the best choice for most users. Ceramic is a moisture conducting material that will actually infuse your hair with moisture as it’s curling your hair. What this means to you is that your hair won’t end up damaged by the heat and it will actually look shiner and healthier than when you started. That’s right, using a ceramic curling iron can actually improve the look of your hair.

Don’t be fooled by people who tell you that hair tools damage your hair. Those people are probably using inexpensive, low quality tools with metal barrels that will snag, burn and singe hair. And yes, if you use those types of hair tools, they will damage your hair. Choose quality hair tools that will improve the look of your hair.

For even healthier looking curls, look for a curling iron with tourmaline in it. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring element that actually emits negative ions. Those negative ions infuse the hair locking in moisture and sealing each and every hair cuticle, so hair lays flat against the head giving you a beautiful smooth curl. Forget about the frizzies and the broken looking hair that often results from over styling, with a curling iron infused with tourmaline, your hair and curls will never look better.

When you use a curling iron to create your curls, you have so much more control over how you want them to look. Do you want loose flowing curls? Or tight spiral curls? You’re in control when it comes to a curling iron unlike a perm or hot rollers where you are at the mercy of the rollers.

Don’t be afraid of curling irons, once you use them a few times, it’s easy to perfect the exact look that you are going for. They’re very easy to use, and the best part about them is that they are affordable and if you want to go back to your straight look tomorrow, you can.

Forget the Frizzies

One of the biggest complaints when it comes to styling hair, is the over processed look that can often be created after hair is subjected to a great deal of styling and product overload. We’ve all seen it, a beautiful young girl walking down the street with over processed, frizzy damaged hair. In fact, you may have suffered from a bad case of the frizzies yourself. But do you have to put up with this damage just because you want to style your hair everyday? The answer is no.

 It is not an automatic given that you need to trade the health of your hair for well styled hair. In fact, if you ask me, and many others, beautifully styled hair should look healthy, not over processed. So, how exactly do you achieve a balance of both? It’s really not very hard to have beautifully styled and healthy hair, but you do need to pay attention to a few things.

 The first thing you must do is evaluate the condition of you hair right now. Is it already damaged and frizzy? Do you already have a problem? If you do, it’s okay. All is not lost. You simply need to work a bit harder at getting your hair back up to a healthy state. Spend some time deep conditioning your hair with hot oil treatments. Be sure that you are not brushing your hair when it’s wet or pulling through tangles that will rip your hair. You might want to consider getting a trim to take care of the damaged, dry ends.

 One of the best investments that you can make for your hair and your overall style is purchasing quality hair tools. Quality hair tools will not only style your hair, they will improve the look of your hair as well. Choose a hair straightener with ceramic or titanium plates, and also look for the addition of tourmaline. Using tourmaline when you straighten your hair will infuse each hair with negative ions that actually close the cuticle, keeping your hair laying flat and looking smooth and beautiful. Not only will your hair look healthier, it will be healthier.

 You can also inject your hair with negative ions by using a tourmaline powered blow dryer. Using a tourmaline hair dryer will actually dry your hair up to 70% faster than a regular hair dryer which means that you do not have to expose your hair to heat for long periods of time, which also protects your hair preventing the frizzies.

 By choosing the right styling tools and spending a little bit of time treating your hair right, you do not have to sacrifice the health of your hair in order to style it. You can have both healthy and beautifully styled hair. So say good bye to the frizzies and hello to gorgeous healthy hair.

Getting Those Curls To Stay In That Thin Hair

November 7, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

For women with very thin hair sometimes getting curls into your hair is hard enough but then getting them to stay is then next to impossible. There is a solution out there that will help those curls stay in place a little longer without having to put so much hairspray on your head that the hair is crunchy and hard. Tourmaline curling irons can actually help you retain those beautiful curls longer than a regular curling iron can on its own. The negative ions produced by the tourmaline in combination with the ceramic makes these the best curling irons for getting that curl to stay since the curl will take deeper into the hair follicle and not just a little on the outside.

Some women use their hair straightening iron perfectly and get those sleek tresses that are so popular right now on the red carpet. But for some their hair does not remain straight and they cannot figure out how to keep those waves or curls from returning before their day is done. Usually this is caused by extra heat and humidity in the air caused by the weather. But there are a few steps you can take to keep that hair straight and looking its best.

Use your blow dryer before you begin using your flat iron even if it is already dry, and try straightening your hair at a higher temperature setting with your professional flat iron. Also use products specially designed for straight hair and use a flexible hold spray to hold it in place once you remove those curls. And of course if you live somewhere where the humidity is especially high than use a shine serum to help battle the extra moisture in the air and keep those locks straight and beautiful all day long. These tips should help you look your best with this great hairstyle that so many women want to have.

Give It To Me Straight! Do I Need a Hair Iron?

October 8, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Do I really need a hair straightener? I mean, what do I really need one for?

These are common questions for those who have never experienced the benefits of a hair straightener. In fact, I heard these exact comments from a friend the other day who was simply not convinced that investing in a hair straightener was worthwhile. If you are struggling with the same questions, I’ll tell you the same things that I told her.

When it comes to looking your best, a hair straightener is one of the most efficient tools that you can have. Hair straightening irons are not only for the ladies with extremely curly hair that want a straight look. Not at all! This particular friend of mine has hair that is definitely not curly, but it does have a natural wave in it. Most of the time it looks a little messy because it’s neither straight nor curly.

 

Unless you were born with perfectly straight hair, a hair straightening iron is essential for achieving a beautiful sleek look. If you have hair like my friend’s, an iron will smooth out any kinks, or puffy spots to give you amazingly straight, gorgeous hair.

But what if I have extremely naturally curly hair? Will a hair straightener be able to tame my curls?

Absolutely! Many ladies with very naturally curly hair became discouraged with early models of hair straighteners because they simply weren’t strong enough, to straighten out their curls. They would have to go over and over their hair, damaging it in the process in order to get the look they wanted. Not anymore! Technology has changed and now there are a number of hair straighteners on the market that will tackle even the tightest curls and not only straighten the hair, but leave it looking healthy and amazing instead of damaged and frizzy.

When you’re looking for a straightener, choose one with titanium or ceramic plates and for even more effective straightening power, look for tourmaline technology which actually dries the hair from the inside out and produces a negative ion charge that closes the hair shaft, sealing in moisture to make it look and feel extremely healthy. No more frizzies!

But wearing my hair straight everyday might get boring. Is there anything else a hair straightener is good for?

Of course! Most women like to change up their style every once in a while, and you need a tool that will allow you to be versatile. A hair straightening iron can be that tool for you. You may think just by the name straightener that the only thing a hair iron is good for is straightening your hair. However, you can also create flips in your hair and even curls and waves all with the same tool. With a little practice, you create many different looks all with the same tool.

Well I have straight hair already, so I don’t need a hair straightener.

I beg to differ. Besides creating different styles with one tool, even if you have naturally straight hair, a straightener is still a very beneficial tool. The new technology that utilizes tourmaline which is a naturally occurring mineral actually helps to make your hair healthier. Tourmaline responds to heat by becoming electrically charged and emitting negatively charged ions. These negative ions smooth your hair, by closing the hair shaft. Eliminating breakage, split ends and dry frizzy looking hair. Your hair will look healthier than ever before!

It doesn’t matter what your hair type is, you can benefit from the investment in a quality hair straightener and achieve beautiful, healthy looking hair!

Save Money By Straightening Your Own Hair

Not long ago if you had curly hair and wanted beautiful smooth straight locks you had to go to a salon and pay a professional to straighten your hair. This was not only time consuming but expensive as well. Now anyone can get the same professional hair straighteners as the pros use and do your own hair in your own home. This means no more scheduling an appointment, which may not be convenient for you, and paying your hard earned money to have gorgeous straight hair. These hair irons only take a little practice to master and with that practice you can begin doing your own hair whenever you want.

Curl is Back in Fashion

July 15, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Those with naturally curly hair have been rejoicing, it seems having loose wavy curls is making a fashion comeback. So that means it is time to lay down those hair straightening irons (though not too far that look is still hot too), and pick up your hair curling irons. I know everyone tells you that you can create gorgeous wavy curls in your hair with that flat iron, but for truly beautiful curl without taking the time to master the flat iron, you will have much better luck with professional quality curling irons.

By going with the curling iron that creates the curl size you want you will have much more control over the final size of the curl you end up with. This will also translate into more uniform curls since the curling iron is one size. With the flat iron the curl amount depends on the amount you twist the iron as you go down your hair. Also using a curling iron for waves is much easier since you only need to wrap the hair around the barrel and wait a few seconds as opposed to the twisting and sliding motion that the flat iron requires. Curling irons are simple to use and every woman should have one or two sizes around at any time to get some style into their hair.
