It does not take long for many women to grow tired of their current hairstyle and want to get a new look. Of course cutting their hair may not always be an option since they are trying to grow it out for a special occasion or just do not want shorter hair. Dying and perms are other options to get new looks but these harsh chemicals are hard on the hair and scalp and do not always come out looking like you want them to.
One way to get a new look without cutting or using chemicals is to use a hair straightening iron to give yourself the runway smooth locks that many models have. Ceramic flat irons can remove curl and frizz to give you a completely different appearance and daily look. Yet they are not hard on the hair and can be used one day for the look and not used another to keep things mixed up. To add even more looks to your repertoire with this simple hair styling tool you can also use it to add waves and even place curl in all or part of the hair. All of this, to change your hairstyle in a way that can bring new life to your look, but can be changed again at any time when you want.
Women today have hair styling so easy and yet many do not realize just how good they have it with the modern styling tools and products available to them. As recently as the 60’s women were using styling tools that were still as primitive as the first models created before the turn of the century. These early tools were more like medieval torture devices that caused significantly more damage to the hair with one use than our modern hair tools cause in their lifetime.
A great example is the method women have used over the years to remove the excess curl from their hair. In the past everything has been used from harsh chemicals that caused severe burns to the scalp when used or even clothing irons to smooth out the body in the hair. Neither method was very effective and both were very dangerous and damaging to the user.
The modern professional flat iron is made with some of the best material available such as tourmaline and titanium so that they are not only effective at straightening the hair but also gentle to the hair and the user in the process. These modern hair straighteners and styling tools are so much farther advanced than tools of the past women of today should be very happy that they do not have to suffer to style their hair.
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.
Many women are now turning to the Brazilian hair straightening technique to get those sleek straight locks that they wish they had been born with. But there is still a debate as to the safety of this hair straightening technique. There has been plenty of claims that the chemicals applied to the hair during this straightening process contain formaldehyde which can be extremely dangerous especially if the person getting their hair straightened has a reaction to this substance.
Of course for women who are nursing or pregnant this technique should never be used to straighten your hair. But for the rest of us it will be like the Japanese hair straightening method; something we should consider carefully. Anytime you choose to subject your hair to harsh chemicals you run the risk of possible complications and you will be placing a lot of stress and damage upon your hair. Of course if you do not want to take this risk to get straight hair there are plenty of professional flat irons that will get the job done with the harsh chemicals. These irons can be used daily if the proper temperature is used on the iron so hair is not exposed to too much heat.
Women can either get straight hair by using chemical straighteners or by using a hair straightening iron to remove those curls. Of course nobody really likes to bombard their hair with lots of chemicals and to do this anyway you would have to go to the salon and spend lots of money for the straightening treatment. Professional straightening irons are now available for home hair straightening so that you can get salon quality looks at home but without the hassle of going to the salon and without using those harsh chemicals that will damage your hair.
