For the most part using a flat iron to gorgeous smooth hair is relatively easy, it is not exactly rocket science to run your hair through the plates of a straightening iron to get the look you want. But getting salon quality results on that look is another story since the pros have some tips for getting hair absolutely smooth that someone just running the hair iron through their hair may not know. Of course anyone can learn these flat iron styling tips once they know what they are and put them into practice.
Knowing to ensure that your hair is completely tangle free and to use divide it off into sections using clips can greatly increase the effectiveness of your hair iron and help get the absolute smoothest results. Also make sure you are using the right temperature on your hair iron. Too low will not straighten effectively while too high will damage the hair and maybe even potentially burn the scalp. Plus using the right hair products from shampoos to conditioners and hair sprays can not only help the hair iron get better results but also to keep your hair healthy despite the styling demands you place on it.
We all want our hair to look its best and many women spend lots of money to get the best hair styling products, shampoos, and hair styling tools to get that really great looking hair. Everyone knows that what we do to our hair and how we take care of it has a large impact on how good it appears and how healthy it is. Yet, there is something more than just what kind of hair flat irons you use, it is also what foods you eat. It is hard to believe that the food you eat can have a very large impact on the health of your hair but it is true. What goes into your mouth is what your body uses to grow and maintain those locks on your head so you need to eat what your body needs to have great looking hair.
Hair is made up of almost all protein so your body needs plenty of good quality lean protein in order to have healthy hair. Not getting enough will leave your hair thin causing it to have less body and even less shine. By eating plenty of protein your body can adequately grow plenty of hair that you can style to look absolutely gorgeous.
Many women blame their styling and hair care tools for damaged and even thinning hair when actually they may be blaming the wrong source. Many styling shampoos and styling products contain chemicals, which can not only dry out your hair but also interfere with the overall health of your tresses. If you think your hair styling tools are causing the damage to your hair you should also consider those shampoos and products you are using. Be on the look out for those that contain alcohol as well as any other chemicals, which will ultimately dry that hair out.
There are many styling products and shampoos, which tout their ability to help straighten hair, and I am always being asked if these are really effective at doing this. To some degree these products help, but if you truly want straight locks then you will need to straighten them with one of the many professional hair straighteners on the market. These hair irons are the most effective way to remove frizz and curl from even the kinkiest of hair types. Not only do they work extremely well they also can double as a curling iron if you ever decide you want to put a little wavy style into your hair for an evening out.
Every girl knows that styling your hair daily takes its toll on the health and vitality of your locks. The heat from drying and styling combined with the chemicals from shampoos and sprays can start to really dry out your hair and make it difficult to manage. Luckily breakthroughs in technology are starting to catch up and make taking care of your hair as easy as styling it. With an ionic curling iron the natural negative ions your hair needs to retain its own natural moisture get replaced during the styling process. This will leave your hair better off than before you styled it with your curling iron.
Long, sleek straight hair is definitely a look that is in style right now and just because you were not born with those locks you can still get the look. There are several ways you can straighten hair to get out the frizz, waves, and curl to achieve smooth, straight hair. Professional hair tools such as blow dryers or hair flat irons can be used and there are even hair straightening products that you can apply to encourage straight hair.
When blow drying hair straight or using ceramic hair irons you should always use professional salon hair tools. These tools are designed to work effectively to get the job done on your locks while being safe for your hair to keep from damaging your locks in the process. Blow dryers should have not just very hot air, but also a strong flow of air coming from them to achieve good straightening. While ceramic hair straighteners should have variable temperature settings to best match your hair type and condition for the best hair straightening effects. Whenever straightening hair always use mild shampoos and strong conditioners to help keep your hair healthy and moisturized to best handle the temperatures from the hair straightening tools.
How do you really know if you are using the right styling product. I know sometimes it can be hard to look at your own hair but here is one note that should be taken seriously…When you see a ton of flakes, piling up in your hair, this is usually from bad hair products not getting washed out properly, too much hairspray or simply can be a case of bad dandruff.
Now I know this photo isn’t pretty but you need to see what other people see when you are standing or sitting below their eye level. Now, from my research these are some treatment shampoos that should help if indeed you have dandruff. First though, what I know about Head and Shoulders is this, it (don’t know if it still is) used to be so strong that if you put rollers in your hair then poured Head and Shoulders all over your head, rinsed the shampoo out, removed the rollers, your hair would keep the curl. If this product is strong enough to perm your hair, then yes, I guess it will get rid of dandruff, but in the process you would have BADLY damaged hair. So please try something else!
Here is an all natural treatment that you can do yourself.
This recipe is from “Dandruff Cure Recipes”
Boil some water and soak rosemary leaves in it. Let it stand for one night. Strain and add vinegar to it. After shampooing, wash your hair with this preparation. It treats the hair very fast. Make sure you eat lots of greens and take vitamin E and B complex supplements. Biotin in your diet is very important and is considered an important anti-dandruff compound. Eat foods rich in biotin: soybeans, oats, barley, corn, garlic, avocado,ginseng.

Something simple that probably every person has in their home is baking soda. Mix about a tablespoon in with your shampoo and this will also strip your hair of chemicals. These products must only be used periodically, the baking soda method should be used maybe 2 to 3 times in a row, every 2 to 3 months. Same goes with the shampoos, too much use and your hair will start to dry out. Till next time, Good Luck,
