Does Repeated Styling Tool Use Damage Your Hair?

March 26, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Women always hear conflicting reports on just how much damage can be done to their hair with the hair tools they use to get the latest styles. In some cases it sounds like your hair will fall out if you use a hair iron daily while in others they make it seem you are actually helping your hair by using one of these professional hair tools. It can be confusing and make it hard to understand what is best for your hair.

The truth is that actually both are true and the one variable that controls the outcome is the user of the styling tool. Of course poorly made hair irons that have exposed metal are never good for your hair but with well made quality tools such as Chi flat irons you can actually help your hair and not do any damage. The results you will get with these professional hair irons will be up to the user. If the user uses the hair iron on wet hair or too high a temperature setting of course damage will occur to the hair. But with proper use irons that utilize ionic technology and other advanced materials can actually help your hair look its best and be healthier.

Nano Silver Technology On Hair Tools

If you shop for professional hair styling tools you are sure to see the term nano silver technology used on curling irons and hair straighteners. This new technology is specially designed to eliminate bacteria that can grow on the hair styling tool and cause those who come in contact with those bacteria to potentially get sick. This is an extremely handy feature for a curling iron that may be shared by sisters, roommates, or even if it is used in a salon. Nano silver technology sounds like a much of jargon when it is described how it works, but if you want to ensure your curling iron is free of bacteria purchase a model with this added feature.

Hair Curling Tips

Curling your hair with a curling iron sounds fairly simple but it is amazing how many girls try and rush through the job and get not such great results. As with most things practice makes perfect so do not expect to take your new professional ceramic curling iron out of the box and get perfect curls instantly, though you may if you are very good with hair.

If possible you should look into a thermal hair styling protection product for your hair. These are designed to help your hair better handle the stress of styling with heat from hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons.

Make sure your hair is totally free of tangles and snags before you begin curling your hair. You want the best possible surface to begin your curling with so take the time to comb it out well.

Curl only a small piece of hair at a time so that the heat can properly get to each strand to curl it. If too much hair is wrapped around the barrel of the curling iron at one time the heat does not get evenly distributed and the hair will not curl well.

It is also very important not to touch your hair until the hair has a chance to finish cooling. This will allow the curl to finish setting in, and touching it too soon can remove some of the work you put into it.

Mostly take your time and do small pieces at a time and soon you will be getting salon quality curls at home in front of your own mirror.
