There is no question that shiny straight hair is a very hot look right now in the fashion world. Whether you have long or short hair, healthy looking straight hair is a great look for a night out on the town. Even if you were not lucky enough to be born with straight locks you can still get the look with hair straightening products and tools.

Heat from professional hair tools such as blow dryer and straighteners are effective at removing frizz and curl from most any hair type. Professional grade hair tools are much easier to use on your hair since they are made of high quality materials, which work well on the hair while minimizing the damage that heavy styling can have on the health and vitality of your locks. Since these styling tools are made with better materials such as titanium and tourmaline ceramic they not only will last longer then cheap hair tools, they will also be easier on your hair. These hair products also use technology such as ionic hair straighteners, which help your hair retain its own natural moisture. This will cut down on the damage from the heat of your styling products to keep it healthy and radiant.

Getting straight hair has gotten easier over the past few years with major advances in professional hair tools. Of course the biggest steps has been the creation of ceramic plates for hair straighteners. These ceramic hair straighteners are less damaging to the hair than old metal plates, which did not heat up evenly and damaged the hair. Most hair straightening tools utilize these ceramic plates now, but the difference between the professional hair straighteners and the cheaper models is how the ceramic is used on the iron. Professional straighteners are solid ceramic or even tourmaline ceramic hair straightener while the lesser models are only ceramic coated. This ceramic coating can come off the straightening iron easily which will expose the hair to the metal underneath and potentially damage it.

Ionic technology has also made hair straightening tools much easier on the hair and more effective at creating long straight locks of hair. Hair straighteners which utilize this ionic technology block harmful negative ions from your hair, and this leaves your hair smoother and dries it out less in the straightening process. The more you can minimize the heat damage to your hair with ionic hair straighteners the better your straight hair look will be on you and the more often you can perform the process without long term damage to your hair.
