But you can use these hair styling tools on your hair without any fear at all if you take a few precautions to take care of your hair and protect it from the heat of these tools.
Try to avoid using your hair iron or curling iron every day, many women wash their hair daily, which strips it of moisture, and then styles everyday. Most women would be fine with washing their hair every other day and using their professional hair iron only when they need to remove the body for that straight hairstyle.
It is also very important to keep your hair well moisturized to protect it from the heat. Also use professional hair tools that are designed to lock in your natural moisture instead of stripping it out of your hair. A variable temperate setting is also extremely useful so that you can make sure you are using only enough heat to style and not so much you are damaging your hair.

Of course the stars and the models on the runways are the ones who set the trends for the latest hairstyles that we all want but we can still achieve them on our own with a little guidance and the right hair styling tools.

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.

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.
Winter can be very tough on your hair since the outside air gets much dryer with the colder temperatures. This will rob your hair of its own personal natural oils, which help it look sleek and shiny therefore leaving it dried out and dull appearing. Using hair styling tools that do not have variable temperature settings can only add to the drying out of your hair that the winter weather is already causing.
Inexpensive hair tools do not have a way to control the temperature on you curling iron or hair straightening tool and this causes you to use more heat than necessary to get the job done especially if you have thin or fine hair. Most professional hair styling tools include a variable temperature setting that is easy to operate so you can dial in just the right amount for the job but not so much that you dry out your winter wary hair in the styling process. When combined with a excellent hair conditioner along with proper hair care such as never going outside with wet hair and despite the dryer than normal conditions you will still look your best right up until spring and beyond.
For quite some time now the hair styling industry has been a little stuck in a rut. True the leading companies were advancing their products to be even better year by year, but there was still something missing. Finally Corioliss came along and shook up the industry with their new approach to styling tools and making women look their best.

For women who have very long hair or those trying to grow out their locks split ends is a nightmare they hope will not come true. The only way to get rid of those split ends and have a healthy vibrant looking head of hair is to get them cut off. So avoiding split ends means being able to avoid hair cuts you do not really want to have.
One of the biggest causes for split ends in hair is excess heat and the damage that can come from your hair losing its own natural moisture. For women this means that you need to choose your hair styling tools carefully and use them as they are made to be used in order to ward off the potential for split ends occurring in your hair.
Choosing hair tools wisely means using professional hair tools that are designed with the latest technology to be gentle on your hair while they do their job. These hair tools use science to keep your hair naturally moist by finding other ways than pure heat to dry and style your hair. With ionic technology and high tech materials you can get the best for your hair and avoid split ends in the process.
Some women take several short cuts during their busy day in order to get everything done they have to do. For some this includes skipping things in their morning routine to get ready that may actually damage their hair. Many do not realize that the damage to their hair from improper use of hair styling tools will actually keep them from looking their best.
Not all women wash their hair daily, and this is a good thing as washing too often will dry out your hair and can create a build up of shampoo that will remove the shine. Of course they do not hesitate using their hair iron every morning whether they have washed their hair or not. This can actually damage your hair as well since the heat from the hair straightening iron can sear that dirt and grease right into your locks.
Just as bad though is washing your hair and then using your hair iron to straighten out those locks before they are completely dry. The steam created from the water along with the heat can actually singe your hair and cause damage as well.
If you plan on straightening your hair one morning it is wise to wash your hair the night before and then use your ceramic flat iron in the morning to get those curls out.
Probably one of the first hair styling tools you ever owned was a curling iron. In fact, if you went to high school in the early nineties, a curling iron was essential in order to create those sky high bangs that were so popular. Do you remember how you choose what curling iron you should use back then? Probably not, but I would bet that you didn’t choose your curling iron based on how good it would be for your hair. In fact, it hasn’t been until recently that hair styling tools have actually benefited hair. However, there are a few things that you should keep in mind when you are looking for a curling iron, because they have come along way since you first started using them.
If you are thinking about getting a curling iron, don’t make the mistake that they are only good for curling your bangs up to great heights. Curling irons are useful for so much more than that. If you have always wanted wavy, sexy curls, then a curling iron is the perfect tool for you. Or maybe it’s tight, spiral curls you’re looking for? A curling iron is also the tool of choice for you.
Be sure when you are looking for a curling iron to choose the barrel width that’s right for the style you want to achieve. Because curling irons come in a wide variety of barrel sizes, from ¾” up to 2” barrels. If you are looking for tight curls, choose the smaller curling iron barrel size. But if loose waves are your thing, you’ll want the larger barrel. It’s important to note that if you have short hair, you should not choose large barrel sizes, they are only useful on longer hair. Shorter hair does better with smaller barrel sizes as they are easier to negotiate on short hair. If you have medium length hair and want to have some versatility when you style, you may want to consider a 1” barrel size because they are the most versatile and you can create quite a bit of style with this size.
Another consideration when you are choosing a curling iron is the material of the barrel. Look for a ceramic curling iron because ceramic is an excellent material choice. Ceramic is known for conducting heat evenly and quickly so you do not need to worry about any hot spots developing on your iron which will burn your hair. Ceramic also smoothes your hair as it styles, so your hair will not look frizzy or over treated.
Other features to look for in a curling iron include ionic technology which actually locks in natural moisture and oils to make hair look healthier than before. Silver technology is also a great feature, because the silver kills bacteria and germs that may be in your hair or on your styling tool so that your hair can stay as healthy as possible.
Curling irons have come along way since your early styling days, so take the time to research a quality hair styling tool before you make the investment.
So it’s a new year, and if you’re like most people, you probably have a New Years resolution or two. And if you are like most people, you may have already broken those resolutions by now, the first week of January. So why not make a resolution that you can actually keep? Make the New Years resolution that you are going to pay more attention to your style and give your hair the treatment that it deserves.
Too many people take their hair for granted. Giving it a quick brush in the morning, or throwing it up in a pony tail. But your hair can be so much more, and it should be. So why not utilize your hair to its full potential and use it to really show off your style. Your hair is actually an extension of yourself, and with a little bit of care and the right hair styling tools, you will easily be able to create whatever styles reflect your personality.
The first thing you need to do is to be sure that your hair is in optimal condition. And if you’ve been neglecting your hair for awhile, you may need a little bit of work in this area. The first step would be to visit a hair stylist for a trim and a little shaping. Tell them what you are trying to achieve and a good stylist will be able to create that for you. And if you don’t know what you want to achieve with your hair, simply let them know a little bit about your personality and your lifestyle and let them take it from there.
Once your hair has been trimmed and you’re ready to go, you will need to invest in a good hair straightener. The hair straightener is the way to go if you are new to hair styling because you don’t need a full drawer of styling implements to get started. This one hair iron should do the trick.
If your hair is curly or has a natural wave, you can use the hair iron to straighten it for a complete new look. But don’t stop there. You can also use the hair straightener to create flips and tucks with the ends of your hair, giving it a bit of style and pizzazz.
If you already have straight hair, use the hair straightener to add curls and waves to your hair giving it volume. Yes, you can curl your hair with a hair straightener!
It is important however when you are choosing a hair straightener to choose one that is going to treat your hair well. Because what’s the point trying to achieve beautiful styles when you’re just causing damage to your hair? And if you don’t pick the right hair straightener, that’s exactly what you will be doing. Look for a hair iron with tourmaline. Tourmaline works by infusing your hair with negative ions that actually seal the hair cuticle locking in natural oils and moisture so your hair looks and feels healthier and shiner than ever before.
You should also look for a ceramic plate hair straighter, or a titanium plate hair straighter because these plate types are the best for your hair providing you with the proper heat distribution, without snagging or pulling your hair.
So this year, make a New Years resolution that you will actually keep and invest some time and effort into your own personal style.
