Goodbye To Wet Head With An Ionic Hair Dryer

January 28, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

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.

Taking Your Time To Straighten Your Hair

January 18, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Women who have had their hair straightened by a stylist think they could never get their hair to look as good as it does when they leave the salon. The one thing these women forget is the only things the stylist has they do not is a professional styling tool and experience. These are both things that you can get to do your hair at home for salon quality straight hair for a fraction of the cost, and without an appointment.

 

There are plenty of professional styling tools available including ceramic flat irons that can be purchased over the internet or at fine hair beauty supply shops. These are the same tools used by the professionals so that you have the exact same tools to get the job done just as they do.

The only other piece that a professional stylist has is experience and the only way to get this yourself is to just keep trying your hair iron on your hair and seeing what kind of looks you can get. One key thing to remember is that the stylist takes her time on each head of hair that she does and never rushes the job. Taking the time to glide the hair iron slowly and smoothly over each small section of hair is a large part of the success to getting great looking straight hair.

Hair Straightners With Tourmaline

January 5, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

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.

Choosing Between Chemical And Flat Iron Straighteners

November 7, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

If you have not been to the salon lately to get your hair straightened with chemical straighteners than you may be in for some sticker shock when you do decide to go. This is one very expensive hairstyle to get and one that could be done at home for a very small fraction of the cost. Of course the chemical straightening is permanent and will not come out of your hair until it grows out so you will not need to style it daily. The chemicals can be harsh though and you will not be able to do certain things to your hair such as color it without causing lots of harmful damage.

A hair straightening iron will only cost just about or over $100 and you can use it daily to straighten your hair with ease or not use it to have a different look for the day. Though this style will come out of your hair and need to be done again daily you will still be able to do whatever you want with your hair without fear of chemical overload causing too much damage. For many women it is a personal choice on whether to go with the chemical straight hair or the flat iron straight but with such a large price tag it can be easy to decide.

When is it Time to Get a New Blow Dryer?

November 4, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When you look at a list of the necessary hair tools that you will need to recreate your beautiful salon hair style at home, if you are like most people, you will already have at least one of the tools on that list. The hair dryer. The hair dryer is probably one of the most common hair tools in women’s bathrooms across the world. So, there’s a good chance that you already have one.

 

But should you own that particular hair dryer? This is the question that you should ask yourself if you’ve been looking at the same hair dryer every morning for years. How old is your hair dryer? I have friends who have proudly informed me that they have had the same hair dryer since they were teenagers. Well, I suppose that demonstrates that you can’t throw anything out, but does it tell you that you have a quality dryer?

 

Of course, you may argue that if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. But just because a machine can last for two decades does not mean that it’s a quality hair dryer. Don’t you owe it yourself and your hair to upgrade your tools a little bit? I think you do.

 

So why should you part with your retro hair dryer? Well for starters, technology has come along way since you bought your blow dryer ten or twenty years ago. Now, you can blow dry your hair in a fraction of the time that it takes you with your old machine. That means that not only will you be able to cut your styling time in half, but you will be exposing your hair to much less time under the heat which means that you will be protecting your hair from excessive styling heat.

 

But don’t worry, with today’s new dryers you won’t be damaging your hair anyway. Ceramic covered elements and hair dryers with tourmaline technology actually emit negative ions that work to dry your hair faster and to close the hair shaft which means the hair will be laying down flat on your head which makes it look smooth and healthy. Not only will your hair look smooth, it will be healthier. Tourmaline technology has been shown to actually improve the health of the hair shaft which means beautiful, bouncy hair for you.

 

If that’s not enough to convince you to get a new dryer – consider this. Older hair dryers can become safety hazards because they get clogged with hair and lint. In many older models of dryers, you cannot easily remove the back to get at the fine filter in order to clean it. That means that you cannot remove the build up that could potentially present a problem. Older dryers use more energy and generate more heat, and if you have a build up of lint and hair in your dryer, you are setting the stage for a fire hazard. It is not unusual to hear of fireballs coming out of the back of old and dirty blow dryers.

 

So, out with the old and in with the new. It’s time to upgrade your hair styling equipment and reward yourself and your hair with the latest technology that will give you the beautiful, healthy hair that you deserve.

Have you over styled your hair in the past? Maybe undergone a great deal of chemical treatments or colors? If this has happened to you, you might be suffering from dry, damaged and frizzy hair. It can be extremely frustrating to style your hair if you are suffering from damage because you don’t want to further damage your hair or cause any more problems. Also, it can be intensely difficult to control frizzy dry hair.

 

Don’t worry, you don’t have to live your life under baseball caps or with your hair pulled back in pony tails. There is hope for you and for your hair. Because you can style your hair even if it’s damaged from past problems. The key is to use the right tools and products.

 

If you have the typical frizzy hair that results from damage, you can make it smooth without further harming it. Simply find yourself a quality hair straightener that is made from either ceramic or titanium plates. You should also invest in a straightener that has tourmaline technology. 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.
