While Flat Irons Are Better With Tourmaline

April 15, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Hair irons have come a long way in the past few years as technology has made advances, which make them less harmful to the hair than they originally were. First flat irons were exposed metal plates that were run through the hair to remove the frizz and curl. Eventually ceramic began to be used to cover the metal, which greatly reduced the damage that the very hot metal was having on the hair. Of course now you can get ceramic flat irons that are combined with tourmaline for the ultimate in straightening but in an iron that will not damage your hair despite regular use.

Of course the biggest advantage of a tourmaline flat iron is the additional negative ions that comes with their use. Tourmaline produces more negative ions, which help lock moisture in your hair. This will reduce the risk of damage that is associated with hair that is dried out from over styling. But the ionic technology is not the only benefit. Tourmaline also has great heating efficiency and can straighten hair faster than a ceramic alone iron. This will reduce the amount of time your hair will be in contact with the plates once again keeping you from damaging your hair while styling it.

Goodbye To Wet Head With An Ionic Hair Dryer

Recently I had a discussion about blow drying with a friend of mine. We live in a cold climate where if you went outside in the winter, would be a sure fire way to create a head full of icicles and invite pneumonia into your life. My girlfriend asked me how I always managed to have my hair styled in the morning and have it looking so good. She was stunned when I told her that simply blow dried my hair every morning just as I always did. This was her response, “But if you use a hair dryer every day, you’ll wreak your hair!” She was shocked that I did this; I was equally as shocked that she didn’t.

Instead of drying her hair everyday, she reserved her hair dryer for only a few days a week and the rest of the time let her hair air dry which meant she had to wash her hair at night. While I think that air drying your hair is a great way to go on a Saturday, or if you just want to have a laid back day, it doesn’t seem like the best way to go when you need to present a polished image at the office, and letting your hair air dry is equally as ludicrous when it’s -30 outside. So what’s a girl to do?

I’ll tell you what I told my friend. I don’t worry about damaging my hair by drying it everyday because I use an ionic hair dryer. What is that? Well, I’ll tell you; this is not your $10 cheapy hair dryer that you can buy at the drugstore. I believe that my hair deserves to be treated well, and so do I. An ionic dryer uses ionic technology to dry your hair which means that negative ions are infused into each hair. Negative ions work on the hair by drying it from the inside- out, so your hair dries much faster. This isn’t only better for your hair, because it’s being exposed to the heat for a shorter time, but it also completes the drying process much faster so you’re out of the bathroom with perfectly styled hair in a fraction of the time.

Choosing a hair dryer that utilizes ceramic components is also a great idea. Ceramic heat is a moist heat which means that the moist ceramic heat works on the hair, creating soft, shiny and more manageable hair. So not only is your hair dry, but it looks amazing too.

A hair dryer such as the Karmin Turbo Ionic Professional hair dryer is the perfect example of a hair dryer that can accomplish all of these things for your hair.

No longer do you need to worry about damaging your hair by drying it everyday. You can use a hair dryer confident that your hair will be dry, and perfectly styled while being healthy all at the same time. So don’t think about going out with a wet head in the winter, leave your house looking great everyday with an ionic hair dryer.

If you have the typical frizzy hair that results from damage, you can make it smooth without further harming it.

The tourmaline technology actually emits negative ions that work to smooth your hair, closing the hair shaft and allowing the hair to lay flat against your head. The hair will instantly look smoother, and healthier. And don’t worry about damaging your hair further with a hair straightener, because the tourmaline works to straighten your hair faster, your hair is exposed to heat for a much shorter period which means, it won’t result in damage.

 

You will also want to invest in a quality hair dryer for your hair. Again, you don’t need to worry about extra damage or causing your hair harm by using a blow dryer. But you must invest in a quality product. Look for a dryer that is made with ceramic coated elements and also utilizes tourmaline technology. You can dry your hair in a fraction of the time, without any of the damage because it isn’t being exposed to unnecessary heat. Also, the tourmaline works the same in the hair dryer as it does with the straightener. It will close your hair shaft, smoothing the hair follicle and creating hair that not only looks beautiful and shiny, but is also much healthier and more manageable.

 

You don’t have to be scared of hair tools and styling your hair if it’s damaged and over treated. With the right tools and a little bit of knowledge, your hair will look healthy, bouncy and more beautiful than you could imagine. Stop suffering from bad hair days, and get styling.

The Benefits of Hair Straighteners with Tourmaline

September 30, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When it comes to our hair, women tend to want what they don’t naturally have. If you have curly hair, you want it to be straight. The good news is that straight hair is easier than ever to achieve with tourmaline hair straighteners which means you no longer need to go to drastic measures to achieve that straight hair that you crave.

Years ago, women used to actually iron their hair with a clothing iron to create the flat look they were trying to achieve. Sure, they accomplished their goal – after all, they did get straight hair. But at what price? The intense heat from a clothing iron caused their hair to break, dry out and become severely damaged. Not to mention the severe discomfort of putting your head on an ironing board! Technology has come along way since then with the introduction of hair straighteners, but up until just recently dry, brittle hair was the result of most hair straighteners.

Should you have to sacrifice the health of your hair just to achieve the style that you want? No way. And you don’t have to anymore. There is a naturally occurring mineral that is gathering a lot of attention when it comes to creating beautiful hair styles safely, quickly and effectively. Tourmaline. With the introduction of hair straighteners that utilize tourmaline, you will be able to achieve your desired style that is healthier and shiner than ever before and you no longer will have to worry about the damaging effects of using a hair iron everyday. Tourmaline works differently than regular hair straighteners that simply rely on high heat to flatten the hair.

So what is tourmaline exactly? It’s actually a naturally occurring mineral that reacts to heat by becoming electrically charged which results in a production of negatively charged ions being emitted. So what does this mean to you? Well, we know that you need high heat to straighten hair, and when tourmaline is exposed to heat it generates an abundance of negatively charged ions. Those negatively charged ions actually close the hair cuticle as the iron passes over them which means that they can lay flat looking shiny and healthy. They also seal in the hair’s natural moisture and eliminate static which means that you won’t ever have the frizzy look that other irons can give you. Instead your hair will look shinier, healthier and smoother than ever before.

Tourmaline also produces far-infrared that can penetrate the hair shaft and actually dry the hair from the inside out instead of the outside- in which results in a far gentler and safer approach to straightening hair which means that your hair is exposed to far less damage.

Everyone is short on time these days, which is another reason why hair irons with tourmaline are becoming popular. It takes less heat, and less time to create the style that you’re after which means less time in the stylists chair and less time in front of the mirror in the morning. An iron such as the Karmin Titanium utilizes titanium which is another naturally occurring element, to give you a durable yet light weight iron that when combined with tourmaline creates healthy shiny hair that is free from frizz and damage which means that you achieve the style you desire with healthier hydrated and beautiful hair.

Hair straightening irons are extremely popular right now since straight hair is in such high demand by those who were born with naturally curly hair. Many question if the high heat which hair irons expose your hair to is good for the overall health of your hair. If used right these irons will not damage your hair, but if they are not used properly then damage can occur. If the hair iron has exposed metal on the plates or if the user does not use the proper temperature setting with the variable temperature setting than the potential is there to expose hair to unnecessary heat which can cause damage and dry it out.

There are so many things that women expose their hair to some in the name of beauty and some just because we do not truly understand the damage which is occurring to our hair. To reduce the damage to your hair consider wearing a hat to reduce the amount of sun it is exposed to. Also consider adding a little baby oil to your hair before entering the pool to reduce the damage from chlorine. Make sure you are using the right temperature settings on your hair straightening irons and curing irons so that your hair is not exposed to any unnecessary temperatures.

Are Professional Hair Straighteners Tools Truly Better?

August 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

I recently saw an article, which debated on whether you can get by using an inexpensive hair straightener instead of shelling out more money for a professional grade model with higher quality materials. The article did admit that the cheap hair iron was bad for your hair if it was used often as the metal plates are usually exposed directly on your hair. The overall opinion of the author was that if the user had course hair and used the hair straightening iron infrequently using a cheap iron would be ok and would not result in damage to your hair. That may be the case, but what is the point of buying a hair iron that are afraid to use too often and does not work very well when you do? It seems to me that is someone truly wants the option to straighten their hair when they feel like it using the best hair straightener iron you can possibly afford would be the way to go. Why risk damage to your hair and why get inferior performance from the hair iron by settling for a product, which just does not work very well at all? It seems like such as waste of not only money but time as well.

Hair styling tools have gotten very confusing; instead of just plain curling irons and hair dryers you now have ceramic, titanium, and tourmaline being used. For many these terms can get confusing. What is a tourmaline and how does it work in a hair dryer? Tourmaline is a precious gemstone, which has the ability when used in a hair dryer to not only dry the hair quicker, but also add shine as well to hair at the same time. Even Good Housekeeping has tested tourmaline hair dryers and concluded that they will dry hair 40% faster than a regular hair dryer, and everyone knows the less time your hair is exposed to the heat the healthier it will be.
