The Only Effective Ways To Straighten Hair

October 30, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Many women hear about these miracle creams and gels that will straighten your hair if you simply use them on your hair. These products never work as they claim and you end up not only wasting your money but also placing more chemicals in your hair that will only end up causing damage to the health of your hair. The only real effective ways to get straight hair is by doing a chemical treatment at a salon, which can be costly and harsh on your hair or a hair straightening iron such as those from Chi and Karmin.

How to reduce damage from Hair Straighteners

Yes, there is such a thing as using heating products too much, that is if your not using anything to protect your hair before you start styling. Do you have a matted type ball at the back of your head and the middle doesn’t seem to be as long as the sides? This is because of too much heat products and other misc. things, ie: elastic bands too tight, not the right pillow case etc. If you are going to be using your hair straightener everyday you need to start protecting your hair in the process, if you don’t you will not be able to even straighten that matted hair on the back of your head, it will always have a certain frizz look to it.

Make sure that you take a break every once in a while where you don’t blow dry or use any kind of heating products. Try doing this once or twice a week. Use a good spray in conditioner, avoiding anything that has alcohol in it (this dries out your hair) spray each section as you are straightening it. Use a good conditioning pack at least once every two weeks (the kind you keep in and wash out after approx. 15 min.) Comb deep conditioner through hair and rinse out after time noted above.

Do not brush your hair too harshly, using a natural bristled brush, or a comb, just brush from the bottom up. Use a lower heat setting on your hair straightener once in awhile. As you can see from the photos below after time heating products and just not caring about your hair does sufficient damage. So to ensure the best healthiest hair take care of yourself, eat right, do conditioning treatments and treat your hair like it’s your best friend.

Titanium Hair Straighteners

May 15, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Ceramic hair straighteners do a wonderful job of getting frizzy waves out of the most untamed hair. For an even better performance and extra protection for your hair professional titanium flat hair irons are a step above regular ceramic models. Titanium is a superior metal which is extremely lightweight and heats up quickly and evenly for a better performing hair straightening iron as opposed to those with other metals. These smooth evenly heated titanium hair straightening plates are very easy on the hair while being very effective at smoothing out the frizz and waves in your hair. Titanium hair irons are also more resistant to scratches and are capable of handling heat up and cool down over and over making it the hair iron type of choice for professional stylist.

Top titanium hair straighteners such as the Karmin KM4000 combine this superior metal with ceramic, ionic technology, and tourmaline to make the top hair straightener available. The negative ions help your hair retain its own natural moisture to promote shine as well as to protect it from the heat of the hair straightening iron. Hair tools such as the Karmin are very precise instruments that deliver superior hair straightening over less well-designed hair straightening tools.

Pros & Cons of a Wet Hair Straightener

The wet to dry hair straightening irons are one of those items that sound to good to be true. They offer the benefit of cutting hair styling time considerably as you can skip the blow dryer and get straight to ironing damp hair. This sounds great to many of us who rarely have the time to spend primping in the mornings between work, school, kids etc..

However, we are constantly told that our hair is more prone to damage when it is wet, that we shouldn’t even brush wet hair so when it comes to using a heated styling tool on wet hair, what are the risks?

I decided to do some research on wet to dry hair straighteners, checking out everything from how they work to reading a ton of reviews posted by buyers, so that you can get the information you want and need without having to search the internet yourself.

So, whats the scoop? Here is what I found….

A wet to dry straightener works by using steam to remove excess moisture from the hair. The irons have vents to allow the steam to escape and evaporate.

With a wide variety of brands some claim that their iron will completely eliminate the need to blow dry hair where as others say hair must be 90-95% dry. Most users of these irons say from their experience that these irons only work on damp hair. I also read a few reviews where customers state these types of irons left hair extremely full of static and some even claimed that when they used their iron on their wet hair they felt a shock!

Many reviews commented on how well these flat irons worked for them in their humid climates as well as helped eliminate frizz where as others claimed there hair was left with more frizz and damaged their hair with breakage and split ends.

The higher the price tag on the hair straightener, the better the reviews although that doesn’t mean there were some nay sayers on the higher price irons.

Personally, if my hair has to be 95% dry to use a wet to dry hair iron I believe I may as well dry my hair 100% and stick with my Karmin Hair Straightener with which I know I’m safe. Besides, I prefer to blow dry my hair as this allows me to get more volume in my hair before straightening it.

If you decide to go with a wet to dry hair straightener, the best advice I can give is don’t go cheap and read reviews!!
