July 1, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Kardashians rock the hippie headband look.

Hippie headbands are hot!  This fashion accessory can be worn in so many styles and for so many occasions.  Just follow a few easy tips and you’ll be headband heartthrob!

1.  Use a volume boosting shampoo to ensure you have enough va- va- va- voom to pull of this style.  After your shower, blow dry your hair upside down for even more voluminous resutls.

2.  Use a thermal protection spray to keep your tresses beautiful and healthy, especially close to the roots.  Use a 1″ flat iron to create loose curls:  Clamp a 1″ section of hair about an inch from the roots, wrap the tail of the hair around the straighener, make one full rotation with the straightener and pull to the end.

3.  Allow the curls to cool and then run for your fingers through them to create a wavy, tousled “messy on purpose” look.  Spritz the entire style with a flexible hold hairspray for long lasting results.

4.  Add those headbands baby!  Use just one or layer a few, no matter what you’ll look hot.

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.

Professional Hair Straightners for Better Results

Too often you hear girls who complain their hair straightener does not work well, or flat out leaves their hair frizzier than when they started trying to straighten their locks. This is due to their hair being dried and stripped of its own natural moisture even before they placed the plates of the flat iron on their hair. This can be caused by many things such as; over shampooing, excessive heat when drying the hair, and too many styling products that are harsh on the hair and it’s overall health. When hair is already dried out damaged applying a hair straightening iron can only make the effects worse especially if the hair iron is one of the poorly made drugstore models which do damage to the hair unlike professional hair straighteners.

All hair can benefit from the use of professional styling tools and with hair irons this means using the latest materials and advances such as titanium and tourmaline. Using titanium plates on the flat iron provides better more even heating. While tourmaline is known for its negative ions, which will help your hair, retain its own natural moisture thus keeping your styling from stripping it of its precious moisture it needs to look shiny and healthy not dull and frizzy.
