We all want our hair to look its best and many women spend lots of money to get the best hair styling products, shampoos, and hair styling tools to get that really great looking hair. Everyone knows that what we do to our hair and how we take care of it has a large impact on how good it appears and how healthy it is. Yet, there is something more than just what kind of hair flat irons you use, it is also what foods you eat. It is hard to believe that the food you eat can have a very large impact on the health of your hair but it is true. What goes into your mouth is what your body uses to grow and maintain those locks on your head so you need to eat what your body needs to have great looking hair.

Hair is made up of almost all protein so your body needs plenty of good quality lean protein in order to have healthy hair. Not getting enough will leave your hair thin causing it to have less body and even less shine. By eating plenty of protein your body can adequately grow plenty of hair that you can style to look absolutely gorgeous.

The creators that brought you the best in ceramic hair straighteners have now invested their extensive knowledge and millions of research and development dollars to bring you the best in curling iron technology. The newly launched FHI Ceramic Curling Irons are sure to become top sellers and some of the most widely sought after curling irons in the industry.

When FHI Heat first started out, they simply strove to create the best flat iron that they could. They quickly achieved this goal by selling some of the top performing irons in the business. The FHI Ceramic Curling Irons are no exception. Using the same sophisticated thermal technology, these curling irons create the perfect style every time.

When you already have naturally curly hair, curling irons are perfect for defining curls and making each one pop. It’s important to be especially careful when you are dealing with this naturally curly hair because it tends to be more prone to breakage and damage than straight hair. FHI’s advanced technology is perfect for this fine, damage prone hair because it conditions each hair as you style preventing breakage or any frizzies.

FHI Heat is one of the industries leaders when it comes to utilizing ceramic, tourmaline and the newly discovered Nano-Fuzeion technologies in their hair styling products. Ceramic has long been known to be the material of choice for hair styling tools. This is because of the constant and even heat that ceramic creates. This means that there will be no hot spots on the tool, so you won’t have to worry about burning your hair. Ceramic also uses a moist heat that seals in the moisture into each hair, so you don’t get that dry, frizzy damaged look as with other tools.

Tourmaline is a naturally occurring element that is a natural source of negative ions. Negative ions are great for your hair because they allow each hair to keep its natural moisture and oils and they actually seal in moisture closing each cuticle. The hair then lies flat against the head instead of standing straight up with a dry, damaged look.

When it comes to the new Nano-Fuzeion technology, this is a unique development that actually helps to eliminate any bacteria, toxins, static and bad odors that are on the hair or on the hair tools which creates naturally healthy hair.

The FHI Curling Iron is available in a variety of sizes from ¾” to 1 ½” so no matter what type of curl you are trying to achieve, you will be able to create it using this fabulous technology. There is a swivel cord that lets you style without getting tangled up, it’s easy to handle and sports an ergonomic spring grip handle and kickstand for safety. A digital LCD display is easy to read and lets you adjust the temperature from 266 degrees F to 410 degrees F. So no matter why type of hair you have, you don’t have to worry about damaging it.

For the best in hair technology, utilize the powerful technology in the FHI Ceramic Curling Irons for perfect curls every time.

Avoiding Harsh Chemicals In Your Hair Products

November 11, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Many hair styling products available on the market are loaded with chemicals that the average consumer does not even know what they are. Many of these chemicals are harsh on the hair and will leave it looking less than its absolute best. Often these chemicals are part of the fragrance that is used to make the shampoo smell good. Alcohol is one of these additives that are associated with the smell of the product and it is notorious for drying out hair leaving it dry and frizzy. If possible try and get organic hair products that clean the hair gently without the harsh chemicals that other products contain.

Keeping Your Hair From Looking Oily After Using A Flat Iron

Many women complain that when they use a flat iron, even the more expensive professional models, their hair ends up looking oily and way too shiny. Many women tend to use too many hair styling products on their hair and this is usually the culprit behind the oily look to your hair. Others need to lower the temperature they have their ceramic flat irons set at as higher temps mean more moisture is being infused into their hair to straighten it. Using the proper temperature for your hair type is essential to getting healthy looking locks with your straightening iron.

Take Your Hat Off! Hair Straighteners for Dry, Damaged Hair

October 14, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Dry, damaged, frizzy hair! It can be the curse of over styling and using too many products and hair styling tools. Some people also naturally have dry frizzy hair, and try as they might, they can’t seem to tame it. What do these poor women do? In the past they may have hid their hair under hats claiming a “bad hair day” or pulled it back in a pony tail in an effort to tame it. But no longer do you have to hide from your hair. Even if you have dry, frizzy or damaged hair, you can use a hair straightener to help tame your locks.

 

That’s right, there are now options for you if your hair is damaged but you still desperately want the sleek groomed style that a hair straightener can provide. Many of you may not believe me because you have been trained to stay away from hair styling products when your hair is in this condition. But I promise you, there are hair styling tools you can use. In fact, the best hair straightener for dry frizzy hair is also the best flat iron for damaged hair. It’s a relatively new straightener to the market – a tourmaline hair straightener.

 

You may have heard some of the hype surrounding the new tourmaline hair straighteners, and it’s not just hype. These truly are amazing hair tools that can be used for all types of hair, even if you’re suffering damage. These hair irons utilize titanium plates that are absolutely superior when it comes to straightening hair. Titanium is an extremely smooth element, so it will not pinch, pull or tug on hair like other plate types.

 

Titanium also has the ability to heat up extremely fast and to hold a temperature constant so you do not have to worry about burning your hair. With a temperature adjustment, you can turn down the heat which will go further to protect damaged or processed hair. But the real innovation is with the addition of tourmaline which is a naturally occurring mineral that actually responds to heat by becoming electrically charged with negative ions. These negative ions work to close the hair cuticle which allows the hair to lay flat keeping it protected and making it look shiny and healthy at the same time.

 

Tourmaline technology also allows you to style your hair in half the time as regular hair straighteners which means there is much less time with the hair iron actually touching the hair which reduces the likelihood that any further damage will occur to the hair. This is because it produces far infrared heat that dries the hair from the inside out, instead of the outside in like other hair straighteners.

 

Not only are you able to use a hair straightener if you have dry, damaged and frizzy hair, but your hair will actually benefit from the use of a tourmaline hair straightener. So what are you waiting for? Take that hat off and treat your hair to some beautiful styling today with the best new hair straighteners for your hair type.

Using Quality Hair Tools For the Health of Your Hair

August 10, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

One of the biggest reasons to invest in professional hair tools is the better materials that go into making them. Curling irons and hair straighteners, which are made from materials such as ceramic and tourmaline, heat up more quickly and evenly than those tools, which do not have a ceramic coating and are using inferior materials. High, even heat applied to small sections of hair at a time are the most effective method of either curling or straightening hair. So the work done with lesser products that do not heat up as well tends to come out of the hair quickly and this encourages the user to apply more hair styling products which dry the hair out in order to make it stay in place.
