If you are new to hair straighteners, or you simply haven’t shopped around for an updated tool in a little while, you may be confused with some of the new products that are available these days. There have been considerable number of advancements in the hair styling world and that includes the development of new and exciting hair tools that work even better than before. If you are still using a glass or metal hair straightener to style your hair, stop now before you do even more damage to your hair! You owe it to yourself to check out what’s new with hair irons.

When it comes to hair straighteners, you may have heard about new hair irons that utilize tourmaline. If you’re unsure about what tourmaline is, it is a naturally occurring element that is found in nature. Tourmaline is a natural source of negative ions when heat is applied, and it emits a large quantity of these ions. The reason that tourmaline is important to hair straighteners is because when the heat from the iron heats up the tourmaline, negative ions are created and those negative ions are actually a great benefit to your hair.

When negative ions are emitted from a hair straightener, they infuse each hair, going directly into the hair shaft. Negative ions actually close the hair cuticle sealing in natural oils and moisture. Because all of the hair cuticles are flattened it means that every hair on your head will lay flat on your head instead of sticking up and looking frizzy and over treated. And because all of the natural oils and moisture are locked into each hair, your hair will be soft and manageable instead of dry and frizzy. In fact, your hair will likely look better than it ever has before, healthier and more radiant.

And there’s more. Tourmaline also produces far infrared heat which works to dry your hair from the inside out instead of the other way around. What does that mean to you? Well, it means more time because it only takes a fraction of time to straighten your hair with a tourmaline iron than other types which means that you will be out the door with perfectly styled hair in no time. And because less heat is required to accomplish the straightened look it means that your hair isn’t exposed to harmful heat for very long minimizing the chance of any damage ever occurring.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice the quality of your hair just because you want to achieve a straight look. And using the old style glass and metal plate hair irons cause a great deal of damage to the health of the hair. No longer will you have to suffer through damaged, unhealthy hair all in the name of style. With the new tourmaline hair straighteners, you can accomplish beautiful sleek and sexy styles and actually make your hair healthier and more beautiful than you ever thought possible. So stop sacrificing and make the leap to a tourmaline hair straightener today.

If you walk into any salon right now and look at the blow dryers they are currently using you will see that they prefer ionic hair dryers to the many other types. Traditional hair dryers release positive ions as they dry hair that ends up exposing the hair to more heat damage since they do not effectively and quickly dry your hair as newer ionic models do. These positive ions also open the hair cuticles up which promotes frizzy dry looking hair as opposed to the negative ions which leave your locks looking luxurious and healthy.

The negative ions which are emitted from the ionic blow dryers break water molecules down which speeds up drying times and exposes the hair to less hot air resulting in significantly reduced potential for hear damage. Other benefits of these units are tightened cuticles, which mean no frizz or dry out of control hair and less time and heat needed to get that hair dry quicker. With benefits like these every woman should be using a ionic hair dryer to dry their hair each and every day. Though they cost more than the traditional hair dryer what you will save in styling products to keep your hair healthy that you will no longer need make them well worth the money.

Buying A Hair Dryer With Enough Wattage

When you are shopping for a new hair dryer one of the things you should look other than ionic or tourmaline technology is the wattage rating for the unit. Professional hair dryers use 1500 to 1800 watts to dry hair quickly and efficiently. Cheaply made blow dryers have less wattage behind them and this allows the cuticles to curl up while you are drying resulting in frizzy hair that does not look nearly as good. Starting your hairstyle off with a proper dry can make the difference in looking your best or not.
