This Year Give the Gift of Style

The calendar says that it’s officially December, which means that Christmas is only a few weeks away. Have you finished all of your shopping yet? If you haven’t, you are not alone. Christmas can be an extremely stressful time trying to figure out what’s on everyone’s wish list. But if you have some extra special ladies on your list, I can make your holiday shopping a whole lot easier this year. All you have to do is give them the gift of style and beauty with some quality hair tools.

Giving quality hair tools like hair straighteners, curling irons and blow dryers are an excellent choice because you will be giving those special ladies a gift that they can use all year long, every single day. And in these tougher economic times, it’s a much better idea to give your friends and family something that they can use instead of another sweater, or Christmas decoration.

So when you start to shop for the perfect hair tool there are a few things you should keep in mind, especially if you are new to this. When it comes to hair straighteners, you want to look for a quality tool that will not only straighten the hair but will leave it looking healthier and more beautiful than before. You need to select an iron that uses ceramic or titanium plates because they will protect the hair and give it a beautiful shine. If you really want to spoil that special lady, a hair straightener with tourmaline is just the thing. Because not only will her hair be straight, it will actually be healthier due to the addition of tourmaline that infuses each hair with negative ions that close the hair cuticle locking in moisture and natural oils.

If it’s the gift of curls that you have decided to give, look for a curling iron that has a ceramic barrel. Ceramic provides a consistent heat that will not fluctuate which means that when your special lady is curling her hair she won’t have to worry about the curling iron losing heat or creating hot spots that might burn her hair. Tourmaline is another added benefit for a curling iron that will make hair look healthy and shiny, eliminating the dry damaged look that can occur with styling with a lesser product.

Blow dryers are also great gift choices, particularly when they cut down on the time it takes to dry your hair every morning. When you choose a quality hair dryer, look for one that utilizes ceramic coils which provide a moist heat causing hair to retain some of its natural moisture. Tourmaline is also an important addition because the negative ions actually dry the hair from the inside out which means that your lucky lady actually spends drying her hair everyday can be reduced by up to 60%. And that’s the gift of time.

So instead of another gift basket, or the latest best seller, give the ladies on your gift list the gift of beauty and style with some quality hair tools.

Prepping Your Hair for Using a Flat Iron

One of the biggest keys to getting perfectly smooth, silky straight hair with your straightener is by prepping your hair for the styling. Hair that is blown dry effectively and treated with hair care products that help pamper and maintain your locks will be much easier to straighten as well as will look a whole lot better once you are through styling.

To effectively blow your dry so you can get the best results with your ceramic hair straightener, make sure the hair itself is free of excess moisture. Blotting with a towel will do the job fine, and this will help since the less time you spend actually blow-drying the less damage you can do to your hair which will result in less than optimal hair straightening. Now is a great time to apply a thermal protection product so that your hair can retain its own moisture levels throughout the blow-drying and hair straightening process. Just as you can get a ceramic iron with ionic technology you can also get a ceramic hair brush which will also help promote those negative ions which will help your hair be healthy and shiny. Use one of these along with your blow dryer to dry your hair in small sections until all the moisture from the shampooing is gone. Any water still in the hair will potentially damage it once you use your hair straightening iron to smooth it out.
