Heat Advantages of Titanium Flat Irons

January 16, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

It seems every hair iron on the market claims that it is made from the best materials available for the job whether it is based on ceramic, titanium, or tourmaline. Of course all of these options are great choices and will do a fine job of straightening your hair but each has its own advantages that make it a superior way to remove those curls.

Titanium flat irons are known for the amazing ability to handle the heat needed to get your hair it’s smoothest. The natural properties of titanium allow it to heat up quickly and smoothly. For a hair iron this means less time waiting on your hair styling tool to heat up so you can begin styling your hair and the plates will be heated at a even temperature. Other metals do not heat up evenly and this creates hot and cold spots that produce an uneven smoothing action so that some parts will smooth better than others. Other metals also do not get hot enough to properly straighten thick or coarse hair where titanium flat irons are far superior at heating up to temperatures that are perfect for this type of hair.

Hair Extensions Are For Everyone

Have you always wanted long, beautiful hair? It’s true that people usually want what they don’t have, and if you have short hair, you may often crave long luscious locks. Waiting for your hair to grow out is not a very good option. It will take years for your hair to grow out, and by the time your hair reaches the length that you want, you may have changed your mind and no longer want long hair. And more often than not, the hair will become damaged and unhealthy while you’re waiting for it to grow.

But there is an easier way. You can always opt for hair extensions as an easy alternative to create your beautiful look. Some women mistakenly think that hair extensions are only for the rich and famous or celebrities and that normal people shouldn’t or can’t have them. This is the totally wrong way to think. There is absolutely no reason that you shouldn’t have hair extensions if you want them.

Price is no longer the barrier that it used to be as hair extensions are much more affordable now than they used to be and there are many different options for all budgets. If you want to save even more money, you can have a friend put your extensions in for you instead of opting for an expensive salon. There are many different types of hair extensions that are simple enough for anyone to put in on their own.

One of the common misconceptions about hair extensions is that they look fake and everybody will know that you are wearing them. Well of course your close friends will know that you have hair extensions because overnight you will have much longer hair. But for others, no one will be any the wiser about your extensions because they are made very well now and do not look fake at all. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from, you will be able to match your hair type very closely for an excellent match. Choosing extensions made with human hair will also help to have them looking very natural and will make it easier for you to care for them as well and style them.

Hair extensions can be treated like your normal hair. You can wash them, and style them normally with your hair straightener, curling iron and hair dryer without fear of damaging your look. It is recommended that you take a bit more care in washing your hair, and use a gentle shampoo, avoiding the connections where they attach to your own hair, but other than that, you should be able to treat your hair as you normally would.

Don’t think that you have to wear your hair extremely long just because you have extensions. Many women are under the impression that they will have hair down to their rear end if tey get extensions and that’s not always true. If that’s the length that you want, than you can go right ahead, but otherwise you can cut your hair and have your stylist shape it however you would like.

Hair extensions are not just for the rich and famous anymore. With a wide variety available, anyone can have that long, gorgeous movie star look.

Options for Straightening Hair

So many women want straight luxurious hair right now and the stars in Hollywood and models on the runway only encourage this by keeping the look in fashion as the in style to have. Of course if you are not born with naturally straight hair you can either get it chemically or by using hair straightening irons. 

Of course the option to chemically straighten your hair will not be available if you use permanent coloring on your hair even if there is just a little at the ends left this must be gone before you can use chemical straighteners. Also those who swim in pools a lot cannot use these chemical straighteners as the chlorine in the water will have very negative effects on your hair.

If the above conditions apply to you or if you just do not want to subject your hair to those nasty chemicals then hair straightening irons are the more effective way to get that straight hair. The drawback to this method is it does not last long at all so the most cost effective way is to purchase quality salon hair straighteners and do the work yourself as opposed to going to the hair dresser every time you want your hair straightened.
