If you’re in the market for a new hair straightener, you will be faced with a wide variety of choices. And if it’s been awhile since the last time you looked at hair straighteners, or even bought one – you’ll be surprised at the advances in technology that there has been. When you start doing your research for hair irons, pay special attention to those that have ceramic plates.

 

When it comes to hair straighteners, you want one that will not only straighten your hair, but will straighten quickly without damaging your hair. Your hair should be smooth, healthy and shiny. Not dry, brittle and frizzy. Having straight hair isn’t any good if it’s going to damage your hair in the process. So, you owe it to yourself and your hair to choose a hair straightener that not only leaves your hair straight but healthy as well. That’s why you need to pay special attention to ceramic hair straighteners.

 

Hair irons that are made with ceramic plates have a definite advantage over irons that are made with glass or metal plates because ceramic heats evenly which glass and metal do not. Heating evenly reduces the risk for hot spots that may burn your hair. As well as heating evenly, ceramic plates heat quickly which reduces the time you spend styling and waiting to style your hair.

 

Ceramic is also a very smooth material which glides over your hair resulting in a smooth product that will not tug, snag or pull at your hair. Glass or metal plates will often snag or pull at your hair which will result in damage and frizzy looking hair. A quality iron should move smoothly down your hair.

 

Ceramic hair irons actually lock in the moisture in your hair which allows it to lay flat and close the cuticle which leaves your hair looking shiny, healthy and at its best. Better yet, if you color your hair, you don’t have to worry about your color drying out or fading. A ceramic hair straightener protects your color keeping it looking true and vibrant longer.

 

There are a lot of hair straighteners on the market today and they range drastically in price. The great thing about ceramic straighteners is that they are affordable tools that will make your hair look fabulous. Ceramic irons have become one of the top choices for hair stylists in top salons because of their reliable results that they can pass on to clients time after time.

 

So if you’re in the market for a new hair straightener, check out the new ceramic hair irons and you will be impressed at what they can do. For an affordable price, you will be able to have a salon quality hair style every day in your own home.

2. Use a soft, damp, clean cloth to wipe the plates and dry with a soft, clean, dry cloth.
