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.

Resolve To Have Style In 2009!

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.

Have you over styled your hair in the past? Maybe undergone a great deal of chemical treatments or colors? If this has happened to you, you might be suffering from dry, damaged and frizzy hair. It can be extremely frustrating to style your hair if you are suffering from damage because you don’t want to further damage your hair or cause any more problems.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to live your life under baseball caps or with your hair pulled back in pony tails. There is hope for you and for your hair. Because you can style your hair even if it’s damaged from past problems. The key is to use the right tools and products.

 

If you have the typical frizzy hair that results from damage, you can make it smooth without further harming it. Simply find yourself a quality hair straightener that is made from either ceramic or titanium plates. You should also invest in a straightener that has tourmaline technology. The tourmaline technology actually emits negative ions that work to smooth your hair, closing the hair shaft and allowing the hair to lay flat against your head. The hair will instantly look smoother, and healthier. And don’t worry about damaging your hair further with a hair straightener, because the tourmaline works to straighten your hair faster, your hair is exposed to heat for a much shorter period which means, it won’t result in damage.

 

You will also want to invest in a quality hair dryer for your hair. Again, you don’t need to worry about extra damage or causing your hair harm by using a blow dryer. But you must invest in a quality product. Look for a dryer that is made with ceramic coated elements and also utilizes tourmaline technology. You can dry your hair in a fraction of the time, without any of the damage because it isn’t being exposed to unnecessary heat. Also, the tourmaline works the same in the hair dryer as it does with the straightener. It will close your hair shaft, smoothing the hair follicle and creating hair that not only looks beautiful and shiny, but is also much healthier and more manageable.

 

You don’t have to be scared of hair tools and styling your hair if it’s damaged and over treated. With the right tools and a little bit of knowledge, your hair will look healthy, bouncy and more beautiful than you could imagine. Stop suffering from bad hair days, and get styling.

Curling Irons of Today

October 1, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Curling irons have been around much longer than many women realize, with a form of the hair tool being used all the way back to the ancient Greeks. Of course the curling iron has come a very long way since those times, but the same concept of using heat to place body in hair is definitely not new and styles have a way of repeating themselves. But just because curling irons have been around so long it does not mean you have to use a ancient model to put those curls into your hair. Even if your iron is only five years old you are missing out on some new innovations, which can help you hair look, its absolute best.

The curling irons of today can not only place more curl and waves into your hair, but also help it retain moisture and be healthier hair than if a older iron is used. Modern curling irons heat up quicker and have more accurate temperature settings for better curling. They also use ionic technology to infuse hair with the ions that will help it retain its own natural moisture. Stop living in the times of the ancient Greeks and invest in one of the new high quality curling irons that are now available.

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.

To maintain healthy hair and still have the benefits of being able to blow dry your hair instead of waiting for it to dry on its own consider getting a professional quality hair dryer. Professional dryers such as ionic hair dryers are specially designed to dry hair quickly and efficiently to reduce the potential for damage. These dryers will dry hair faster, with less heat, and are made to be used daily. Plus with the new ionic technology these dryers are even capable of adding moisture back into your hair instead of taking it out of your hair in the drying process. Do not be afraid of drying and styling your hair just invest in the proper tools so that you can do so without any damage to your hair.

Tips for Using a Hair Straightening Iron

May 13, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

When straightening your hair with a flat iron hair straightener it is essential to use professional hair tools, which have variable temperature settings on the warming plates. Using the proper temperature setting on your flat iron hair straightener is important to ensure your hair will actually straighten yet will not be damaged in the process.

If your hair is fine or already damaged, use the lowest temperature setting on your hair iron. For very thick and course hair then the highest temperature settings will be needed to achieve straight hair. This leaves the middle temperature settings for normal hair with no damage.

You should also invest in a quality hair iron to straighten your hair. Professional hair tools will achieve better results as temperature settings and construction of them make them better hair tools than cheaply made hair irons.

Of course these are general guidelines for using a hair straightening iron and each person is going to have a different experience. When trying any iron on your hair for the first time you should start off with a small area at a low setting. Eventually with time you will get accustomed to your hair straightener and become a pro at straightening your hair and maybe even the hair of your friends.
