Using Ceramic Hair Irons for Straight Hair

June 13, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

The hot look for summer is long straight hair and if you were not born with straight hair you do not have to live without the latest hairstyle. Of course hair can be chemically treated to be straight, but this is a long process at a hair salon that costs a lot of money and it is down right unpleasant to endure. A great alternative would be to get one of the many hair straightening irons that are readily available and remove those curls yourself. A tourmaline ceramic hair iron is extremely effective at removing the waves from the curliest hair safely and effectively.

Look for ceramic hair straighteners, which have a variable temperature setting so that you can use the temperature that best suits your hair type to work with the hair. With flat irons the temperature used is very important and ceramic irons heat up better and are more evenly heated across the plate to ensure the accuracy of the temperature you are applying to your locks. All you need to do is glide the smooth ceramic plates from the root of your hair to the tip in small sections to remove the frizz and curl and end up with that gorgeous straight hair that everyone wants right now.

When using a Hair Straightener there are some tips you should follow to keep your hair healthy and in it’s best condition.

Before using your Hair Straightener Iron always make sure your hair is clean as dirt or oily hair with any build up from left over product can cause major damage when it gets heated up from your flat iron.

It is always best to use a product that is meant to protect your hair from heat styling such as blow dryers, curlers, curling irons and of course hair straighteners. There is a wide range of products available so finding that suits your hair type and the style you are wanting to achieve is simple.
