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.

The Benefits of Hair Straighteners with Tourmaline

When it comes to our hair, women tend to want what they don’t naturally have. If you have curly hair, you want it to be straight. The good news is that straight hair is easier than ever to achieve with tourmaline hair straighteners which means you no longer need to go to drastic measures to achieve that straight hair that you crave.

Years ago, women used to actually iron their hair with a clothing iron to create the flat look they were trying to achieve. Sure, they accomplished their goal – after all, they did get straight hair. But at what price? The intense heat from a clothing iron caused their hair to break, dry out and become severely damaged. Not to mention the severe discomfort of putting your head on an ironing board! Technology has come along way since then with the introduction of hair straighteners, but up until just recently dry, brittle hair was the result of most hair straighteners.

Should you have to sacrifice the health of your hair just to achieve the style that you want? No way. And you don’t have to anymore. There is a naturally occurring mineral that is gathering a lot of attention when it comes to creating beautiful hair styles safely, quickly and effectively. Tourmaline. With the introduction of hair straighteners that utilize tourmaline, you will be able to achieve your desired style that is healthier and shiner than ever before and you no longer will have to worry about the damaging effects of using a hair iron everyday. Tourmaline works differently than regular hair straighteners that simply rely on high heat to flatten the hair.

So what is tourmaline exactly? It’s actually a naturally occurring mineral that reacts to heat by becoming electrically charged which results in a production of negatively charged ions being emitted. So what does this mean to you? Well, we know that you need high heat to straighten hair, and when tourmaline is exposed to heat it generates an abundance of negatively charged ions. Those negatively charged ions actually close the hair cuticle as the iron passes over them which means that they can lay flat looking shiny and healthy. They also seal in the hair’s natural moisture and eliminate static which means that you won’t ever have the frizzy look that other irons can give you. Instead your hair will look shinier, healthier and smoother than ever before.

Tourmaline also produces far-infrared that can penetrate the hair shaft and actually dry the hair from the inside out instead of the outside- in which results in a far gentler and safer approach to straightening hair which means that your hair is exposed to far less damage.

Everyone is short on time these days, which is another reason why hair irons with tourmaline are becoming popular. It takes less heat, and less time to create the style that you’re after which means less time in the stylists chair and less time in front of the mirror in the morning. An iron such as the Karmin Titanium utilizes titanium which is another naturally occurring element, to give you a durable yet light weight iron that when combined with tourmaline creates healthy shiny hair that is free from frizz and damage which means that you achieve the style you desire with healthier hydrated and beautiful hair.

Getting the Best Hair Dryer For The Money

If you are like me you use your hair dryer constantly, and in the past I always purchased the drugstore models, which were not very expensive, and I quickly burned them up. Another negative aspect of these cheap hair dryers was the damage I was doing to my hair each and every day by using them. All they were doing was taking the air around them, heating it up, and blowing it onto my hair. This was drying out my already over-styled hair and making me prone to split ends and damage, which created frizzy unmanageable hair.

I finally spent the money to get a professional ionic hair dryer and what a difference a quality dryer makes for not only getting my hair dried efficiently but the benefits for my hair increased as well. These ionic hair dryers are much kinder on your hair and actually use special technology to replace the ions in my hair that combing removes. This means healthier, shinier hair that is free of damage and split ends. All of this in a blow dryer which also has long outlasted any drugstore hair dryer I have ever owned and used.
