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.

Save The Hassle, Choose a Professional Hair Iron

January 14, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

I recently had someone tell me that they had decided to invest in a hair straightener upon which I replied, “That’s great, they’re very versatile tools. What kind have you decided on?” My friend went on to tell me that she had decided to go with a brand that is being advertised on television lately and is available at Wal-Mart. She didn’t see any point spending more money than she had to if she could get a good hair straightener at Wal-Mart.

As I explained to my friend, there are a few things wrong with this theory. The first thing is, you should not base your decision on buying a hair straightener completely on money. If price is an important consideration, which it probably is, there are a number of high quality hair irons for affordable prices. However, you cannot put a price tag on the health of your hair. If you save money on the hair tool but then proceed to damage your hair, you are definitely not doing yourself any favors. Not only will you need to spend more money on treatments to restore the health of your hair, but you have just bought a hair tool that does more damage than good, and that is like throwing money in the garbage.

Instead of throwing your money away, take a good look at professional hair straighteners and make the right decision the first time. “But I’m only using it at home; I don’t need a professional quality hair straightener.” My friend insisted to which I asked her. “Isn’t your hair just as valuable as anyone who comes in to have their hair styled professionally?” Of course the answer is yes. Why shouldn’t you have a professional hair iron? Your hair deserves the best, and the only way to achieve straight hair without damaging it, is to use a professional hair straightener.

Once I had my friend convinced that she deserved a professional grade hair iron, she was confused about what type to buy. There are a few major things that you need to look for in a hair iron. The first is the plate type. Ceramic plates are known in the industry as the best plate choice. This is because ceramic is an excellent conductor of heat and will heat the plates up quickly without any hot spots to burn your hair. Also, ceramic plates infuse your hair with moisture to lock in shine. Titanium is also a good plate choice as it is very smooth and lightweight; also if you tend to be clumsy, you don’t have to worry about breaking these plates.

You should also look for a hair straighter with tourmaline which emits negative ions that infuse each hair, locking in the natural moisture and natural oils of the hair and seals the cuticle so that hair lays flat against the scalp. Your hair will look and feel better than ever with tourmaline.

Other features on a hair straightener are nice too, such as nano silver technology which kills germs and bacteria on the hair, leaving your hair healthy. As well as things like an adjustable setting, swivel cord and automatic shut off.

When you are ready to purchase a hair straightener, make the investment in a quality iron from the very beginning and save yourself a lot of damage and money in the long run by choosing a professional hair straightener.

Chemical Straighteners vs. Hair Straighteners

November 27, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

It’s inevitable; you want to change your hair style from time to time everyone does. But what if you have curly hair and you want to make it straight? You do have a few options available to you depending on what you are trying to achieve with your hair. Some people choose a chemical hair straightener over a hair iron because they think that straightening the hair permanently is the way to go. But what about the dangers of chemical hair straighteners? Is it safe?

Safety is definitely a concern when it comes to using a chemical hair straightener, because you are putting chemicals on your head and when there are chemicals involved there is always a concern for your health as well as your hair. Before any stylist uses a chemical hair straightener they should do a strand test. And why do you think they have to do a strand test? Well, because chemicals can cause harm, and by doing the strand test they are trying to determine how much damage will occur.

When you use chemicals on your hair they will almost certainly cause damage to your hair. And why would you want to damage your hair in the quest to create a beautiful style? That seems a bit backward. You should want to create a beautiful style, not a dry, damaged, frizzy style.

So what’s your other option? A hair straightener of course. One simple tool can straighten your hair safely, easily and not only will you be able to create the style you are looking for but your hair will look phenomenal as well. That’s because using a high quality hair straightener, one that utilizes the power of ceramic, titanium and tourmaline will actually improve the look of your hair. A quality hair straightener will infuse your hair with powerful negative ions that work to lock in the natural oils and shine in your hair cuticle allowing it to lay flat on your head. So not only will your hair be straight, it will be healthy, shiny and more beautiful than before. Forget the frizzy, over processed look.

Some people think that it will be easier and more convenient to use a chemical straightener. That way they can wake up every day and their hair will be straight without any effort. However, despite the risks to your health and the health of your hair, there are other issues involved with chemical straighteners. Your hair will require touch ups every few months, and the look is permanent. This means that if you decide that you want to wear your hair curly for a change, you’re out of luck.

And if you think that using a hair iron is not easy or fast, you are wrong! A quality hair straightener will straighten your hair out quickly and effectively which means that you can straighten your hair out every morning achieving the style that you want with minimal effort. And as an added benefit, your hair will be shiny, and healthy as well as sexy and sleek.

You do have choices when it comes to straightening your hair, but the only real choice for straightening your hair in a healthy way is a quality hair iron.
