Titanium Hair Straighteners Vs. Ceramic

November 7, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

A majority of women love to get themselves all dressed up for a night on the town. After a long day in the office or slaving away at home, they feel worn out and are ready to go out and just have fun. Whether that means date night or time away with the girls, one thing is for sure and that is the fact that they need a great hairstyle to show off.

Some women may need up to two hours to get themselves ready. Between make up and styling hair, it can be a pretty timely process to get “pretty.” With a titanium hair straightener, the process becomes hours easier and you won’t even realize it because of the great performance. The great features of this straightener will also make your hair look more stylish than with a ceramic straightener. Not only is time important but you want your styling tool (whatever it may be) to make your hair look freshly polished and shiny, not dry and broken.

One of the great benefits of titanium is that it is naturally enhanced with minerals to make your hair silky looking. It can be deceiving to see girls on T.V. who have perfectly shiny hair. Celebrities can make it look so easy to be glamourous for the camera, but when it comes to real life it’s not as easy. However, with the titanium hair straighteners, you can make styling be simple and quick.

Titanium can be easy to style with because it has many features that will please you each time you use it. One of the greatest things about the titanium iron is that it is made with infrared technology. This is what makes it look just like the celebrities you idolize because the purpose of infrared technology is to remove all static from your hair. This is how celebrities get their shiny, smooth look with no flyaway’s and this is how you can also do it!

Later you can consider the fact that while you are straightening your hair you are also locking in tons of moisture. This because of another kind of technology called Micro-porous technology. It is used in the straightener because its pattern of material is what creates a smooth texture. Because of the way it is made, the material on the iron glides through your hair and makes each individual strand of hair look and feel great.

Some of the greatest things in hairstyling are brought to you by the technology you use. You may not even know it but some of the technology used in your ceramic hair straightener is damaging your hair so much. When you create a mask for the moisture in your hair, like you do with a titanium straightener, you are protecting it from breakage and heat damage.

Keep your hair sealed and protected each day with a new titanium hair straightener. After the use of so much heat on your hair, you need a change for the better. With a titanium kind of material you will definitely lessen the damage done to your hair and will have healthy hair for a more extended time.

Solving Your Hair Straightening Problems

April 10, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Some women read on the internet just how easy using a hair straightener is and how simple it is to run the plates down your hair to create those smooth straight hairstyles that are so popular now on the red carpet and the runway. But for some no matter how hard they try with their hair iron their hair just does not come out looking good when they use the straightener on their hair. Some immediately blame the iron for the problem, and in some cases for those using cheap drugstore models, than that is probably the case. While for others who are using quality hair irons the answer is more likely to be in how they are going about straightening those locks.

Luckily just as there are plenty of web pages that talk about how easy to use flat irons are there are also those that talk about flat irons problems and solutions. These pages will help with things like what to do when the straightness comes out of your hair before your day is over, why your hair may be either excessively oily or excessively dry when you are using an iron, and so much more. Hair irons are very effective at straightening hair with a little practice and know how.

Using A Hair Straightener For More Volume In Your Hair

March 31, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

When most women purchase their hair straightening iron they do so with the intentions of using the hair styling tool to remove the curl and frizz from their hair. Of course these professional styling tools are designed to do just that and they get the job done perfectly. But a straightener can also be used to put volume and even curl into a hair as well when used just right.

To add volume with a hair straightener it is simply a matter of which direct you will hold your hair and run the iron to encourage volume. When you want more body and no curl in your hair after washing and completely drying your hair divide your locks into many small sections that can easily fit into the plates of the hair straightener. Then on each section you will start as close to the scalp as possible and run the hair iron over your hair slowly while pulling the section you are working on directly upwards.

Once you have done each section this way flip your hair forwards and apply some hair spray to the roots to hold the volume you just put in place. Once you get used to using a hair straightener for more than just smoothing out hair you will begin to use it almost exclusively for all of your styling needs.

Setting The Ladies’ Straight: The Truth About Hair Tools

February 6, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Recently at a ladies’ getaway weekend I had the opportunity to talk about hair styles with my girlfriends and then witness the transformation between day and night time hair styles. It was very interesting to learn that some of the ladies I was with, didn’t believe in using their hair tools for daily use, only for going out at night, or for special occasions. I was shocked, because I use my hair straightener every day.

When I asked why they saved their hair irons and curling irons only for special occasions, there were two main answers: 1) they thought that frequent use of their tools would damage their hair, and 2) they thought it was special if they reserved the looks that hair tools gave them for nights out.

I argued against both of these points, and I’ll share them with you as well because I’m pretty sure they’re common misconceptions.

The first point, that hair tools will damage your hair if you use them daily, is absolutely false, unless of course you are using cheap, low quality hair tools and if this is the case, you need to value yourself and your hair much more. High quality, professional quality hair tools will not damage your hair if you use them frequently. In fact, ceramic hair tools infuse your hair with moisture giving it a shiny, healthy look and if you choose hair tools with tourmaline, the negative ions will seal each hair cuticle allowing your hair to lay flat against your head, protecting it from damage and a bad case of the frizzies.

If you do use a low quality, inexpensive hair tool that uses metal plates or a metal barrel, you may burn your hair because there are hot spots, or snag or pull your hair causing it to rip and tear. So the answer to this question is, if you use a good quality, ceramic hair tool, you will not damage your hair, even if you style it everyday.

For the second argument, that they wanted to save their special hair looks for night time or going out, I have to argue. Hair tools are great at creating both day time looks and fancier and more sophisticated evening looks. Just because you’re headed to the office, or driving your kids to school, should you look as if you don’t care about yourself? Absolutely not! Every day should be an occasion and an excuse to do your hair. Obviously, if you want to keep it simple during the day, use your straightener to flatten your hair out and give it a sleek look. When it’s time to go out for that special date, or a nice dinner, take your straightener and give yourself a few sassy curls, or some flips out for the ends of your hair. You can use your hair tools to create versatile looks that are good for both day and night.

In my opinion, if you are going to invest in a professional hair iron or curling iron, get your use out of it. Use it every day and experiment with some fabulous styles for when you go out at night or for that special dinner with your husband. Everyone deserves to look fabulous every day!

Avoiding Crimp Marks When Using A Hair Straightening Iron

January 28, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Sometimes hair straightening irons leave a bad impression with some women who feel that these hair styling tools are not all they are hyped to be. Really for most of these women the issue is not with the hair straightener but with how they are using it. Though these tools are really simple to use it is still easy to make some common mistakes and feel that the iron it to blame for the problem.

One complaint many women have is they end up with many horizontal crimp marks on their hair from the flat iron. The common problem here is the user knows they are supposed to slowly glide the iron down the length of their hair, but they end up actually going too slow. Moving too slowly results in the iron being in one spot too long creating these crimped marks that would not have been there had you moved the iron down the hair quick enough. Of course if the hair is not straightening that means that you are moving too quickly. It should be a nice slow glide that does not stay in one place for any period of time for best results.

Plan Ahead For Great Vacation Hair

January 22, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Do you have a vacation planned? Maybe you’re trying to get away from your cold winter at home or you just need a break from every day life? Whatever your reason for getting away, that’s great! Everyone needs a vacation once in awhile, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t want your hair to look great while you’re away.

When it comes to packing your regular hair tools and styling supplies while you are on vacation, you might be overwhelmed and not really sure where to begin. If you are like a lot of women, you probably have a drawer full of styling tools and equipment and you may not want to take them all with you when you travel.

The first thing you need to decide is what you want your hair to look like while you are away. If you are going to an all inclusive beach club and are going to be spending most of your time by the pool or by the beach you probably don’t need to bother with straightening your hair or curling your hair everyday. I mean why spend precious vacation minutes styling your hair when it is only going to be ruined the minute you jump into the pool? So instead, leave the straightener behind and try a different technique. If you hair is naturally curly, go with it. In fact, the extra humidity of tropical locations will enhance your curls so pack some mouse or gel and scrunch them up.

If you don’t want your curls to become unruly, treat yourself to some new hair accessories and get some headbands, barrettes and pony tail holders to keep your hair off your face and looking stylish.

Of course, you may be traveling somewhere where you want to look great all the time. In that case, you will have to pack your hair tools. But maybe you don’t need to pack everything? Depending on how long you are going to be gone, it might be okay to only pack your hair straightener. In fact, your hair iron is the most versatile hair tool there is, so if you want straight hair one day, loose sexy curls the next day, and a sleek look with flirty flips on the ends, you can achieve all of that with only one hair tool.

Depending on where you are traveling and staying there may be a hair dryer available to you in your hotel room. But if you like knowing what type of hair dryer you are using, you should bring your own. A good travel dryer can save you a lot of time and energy drying your hair and will also fold down and fit in your suitcase easily.

Where ever you plan on escaping to this winter, you can look stylish and fantastic, it just requires a little bit of planning on your part. Remember, your hair should be a secondary consideration when you’re on holidays. Your primary concern should be having a great time and enjoying your time away.

Choose Hair Irons Over Chemicals

January 21, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

If you were born with hard to manage, curly, out of control, and frizzy hair, there is no doubt that you probably like to straighten it from time to time. But do you straighten it every day? Some people like to use a hair iron everyday to straighten their hair and while this can be fine if you use the right iron, it also may be damaging your hair if you are using a low quality hair iron or aren’t using it properly. Many ladies consider chemically straightening their hair because they think it will be easier than using a hair straightener everyday and others feel that using a chemical straightening process will be gentler on their hair.

Before you make the decision to use chemicals to straighten your hair, you need to really think about it. How could it be possible that using chemicals on your hair would be safer or gentler than using a hair iron? It’s not possible. The fact is, you are putting chemicals on your head and letting them sit. This isn’t good for you, or your hair. After chemically straightening your hair, sure your hair will be straight, at least for a little while. But at what cost? Your hair will be damaged, broken, frizzy and may suffer permanent damage that will take a considerable amount of time to grow out. Sure you want straight hair, but I’m assuming that you would rather have healthy and shiny looking straight hair instead of damaged and broken straight hair.

So what’s your other alternative? The other choice, the better choice, is to choose a high quality hair straightener that will be gentle to your hair while getting the job done. If you think that a hair straightener will damage your hair if you use it every day, than you are not using the right type of hair iron.

You need to choose a hair straighter with ceramic plates. Ceramic plates infuse the hair with moisture locking in shine to leave your hair looking healthy and shiny. Another thing to look for in a hair iron is tourmaline. If you are truly worried about damaging your hair with a hair iron, look for a straightener with tourmaline. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring element that produces negative ions. Negative ions infuse each hair with moisture and seal in the natural oils in the hair. These ions also seal the cuticle shaft which allows the hair to lay flat so you won’t get any of that frizzy hair, and it will look shiner and healthier than ever because it will be healthier than before. Yes, a hair straightener can actually improve the health of your hair if you have the right one.

So before you make the big decision to chemically straighten your hair, consider all of the facts. Some people are put off by the cost of a professional hair straightener. But when you consider that these irons typically have very long warranties, sometimes even life warranties, and they improve the health of your hair, it is a small price to pay. If you were to choose chemically straightening your hair, it would not only be a large cost, but you would have to pay for it repeatedly and it would ruin your hair. It seems like a fairly easy decision to me. Choose healthy beautiful hair.

Everyone Has Time To Straighten

January 16, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

All too often I hear the excuse of, “But I don’t have enough time to style my hair every day.” Or, “Using hair tools takes too much time.” And to all those people who say that, I have one word to say to you…”Bologna.” It’s simply not true that styling your hair with hair tools takes too much time. And people who say that are generally people who have not ever bothered to use a hair straightener or curling iron.

I have a simple question for all of those who say that getting ready to face the day by using hair tools takes too much time, “Have you ever tried them?” For most people, the answer will be no. It’s the simple perception that hair tools take more time than simply air drying or blow drying your hair in the morning.

There are a few things that you can do to speed up your morning routine if you are truly short on time, or simply like to sleep in. I have a good friend who has very thick hair, so she washes it at night instead of the morning. This way, she simply has to get up in the morning, and run her hair straightener through it and she doesn’t need to take the extra time to dry her hair with a hair dryer every day.

This brings me to another point. Using a hair straightener is extremely easy, and you can accomplish a beautiful sleek style in only minutes. Professional hair straighteners heat up in seconds, not minutes so you don’t need to wait around waiting for your tool to come to the appropriate temperature. Be sure you choose a hair iron that uses ceramic plates because ceramic retains heat extremely well which means that you don’t have to worry about the straightener losing heat during your styling. You also don’t have to worry about hot spots throughout the plates that will burn your hair. If you really want to speed up your styling, look for a hair straightener with tourmaline. Tourmaline is a natural source of negative ions which infuse the hair locking in moisture, and creating shine. Also, tourmaline helps to dry the hair from the inside – out which means it styles much quicker.

If you blow dry your hair every morning before styling, choose an ionic hair dryer because the negative ions in these dryers works the same way – drying the hair from the inside – out, so your hair dries up to 65% faster which means you are out of the door and ready to go much faster.

When it comes to using your hair straightener, they are extremely simple to use. Simple section your hair, and pull the iron down each section. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, you should be able to have it completely straightened in between five to ten minutes. And you get faster as you get practice.

So for everybody who says that they don’t have time every morning to use a hair straightener on their hair, I have only one thing to say. “You don’t have time not to use a straightener.” These are the ultimate time saving tools. Plus, you’ll leave the house looking fantastic!

Love What You Have

January 15, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Hair styles change so quickly, that it’s hard to keep up with what is currently in style and what’s out of style. It generally depends what hot celebrity wore her hair in a certain way on the red carpet at the latest awards show. But what doesn’t go out of style or change with any frequency is the natural hair that you were born with. Sure, it’s easy to say that you would like a different type of hair. After all, we all seem to want what we don’t have. But, it’s much more effective and better for your self esteem if you learn to embrace what you were born with and learn how to love it.

For better or worse, we were all born with a certain type of hair. Some of us have naturally curly hair, while others have bone straight hair. It seems that we are always yearning for what we don’t have. And sure, it’s great to grab your hair tools and mix it up a little bit giving your normally curly hair a straight look, but what’s wrong with your hair every day looking the way nature intended it? Nothing.

I believe that you should never wear your hair the same every day. After all, that gets boring and isn’t it more exciting to keep people guessing and wondering what you’re going to do? But the first thing you need to do is love the hair you have. Even if it’s not the style that you would have given yourself had you been handing out the hair styles, it’s your hair and you’re stuck with it. So if you have naturally curly hair, instead of using your hair straightener every day, why not wear it curly some of the time? After all, those of us with straight hair will go green with envy for your beautiful natural curls.

Likewise, if you have straight hair, you don’t have to spend all that time in front of the mirror with your curling iron creating luscious waves, because straight hair is sexy too.

When it comes to the thickness of your hair that is something that you can’t really do much about. Those people born with thin hair often bemoan the fact that they want more body in their hair, and would love to have it thicker. But think about the other side of that. If you have thick hair, it can take more than twice as long to blow dry it, it becomes tangled, and often it will look puffy because there’s so much of it. Never mind how hard it can be to pull it back into a simple pony tail. There are always two sides to everything, and as women, we often forget to look at what we have and appreciate it. It’s too easy to covet something that we don’t have.

Hair tools are great, and I think that everyone should have a professional hair straightener and curling iron in their arsenal of styling tools, because they give us options. We can magically turn our naturally curly hair into a sleek style one day and wear it free and curly the next day. But no matter what type of hair tool you have, and what style you create, learn to love what nature gave you because you are the only one with hair like yours.
