When is it Time to Get a New Blow Dryer?

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.

Tips for Using a Hair Straightening Iron

May 13, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When straightening your hair with a flat iron hair straightener it is essential to use professional hair tools, which have variable temperature settings on the warming plates. Using the proper temperature setting on your flat iron hair straightener is important to ensure your hair will actually straighten yet will not be damaged in the process.

If your hair is fine or already damaged, use the lowest temperature setting on your hair iron. For very thick and course hair then the highest temperature settings will be needed to achieve straight hair. This leaves the middle temperature settings for normal hair with no damage.

You should also invest in a quality hair iron to straighten your hair. Professional hair tools will achieve better results as temperature settings and construction of them make them better hair tools than cheaply made hair irons.

Of course these are general guidelines for using a hair straightening iron and each person is going to have a different experience. When trying any iron on your hair for the first time you should start off with a small area at a low setting. Eventually with time you will get accustomed to your hair straightener and become a pro at straightening your hair and maybe even the hair of your friends.
