Hair Straighteners

In the past decade, hair styling has redefined itself. No longer are we seeing permed hair that extends a foot past one's head, but rather, we're seeing long, straight hair that has no hint of poof. As the hair style trends have developed, so have styling tools. For years and years, a good curling iron was in every woman's hair drawer, and now along with the curling iron, you're likely to see a hair straightener, a tool that—you guessed it—straightens hair. And now hair styling tools like curling irons and straighteners aren't used just by women but are also often used by men to style their hair. If you want to be hair savvy in the twenty-first century, you'll need to get a grasp on the hair straightener.

The name of the appliance is pretty self-explanatory. Just as a curling iron will curl your hair, a hair straightener will give your hair a straight, sleek look. Sure you could just not curl your hair if you wanted to have it straight, but using a hair straightener gives your hair a purposeful straightness, instead of a I-just-got-out-of-bed look. A hair straightener will make your hair actually straight, instead of just not curled.

When you straighten your hair, straighten it in small sections. Pull up the upper layers of your hair and straighten your hair one small section at a time. You may have to go over certain sections of hair again a few times to achieve the straightness you want. Your hair won't look straight like you want it if you don't straighten in small sections. You should be aware that hair straighteners have a more damaging effect on your hair than other hair appliances. Hair straighteners can reach up to four hundred degrees in temperature, and those high temperatures will take a toll on the overall health of your hair.

Hair straighteners come in all kinds of qualities. Some straighteners cost over $200 or $300, while others cost just $20 at the local drugstore. For the best results, you'll want a ceramic straightener, and those tend to cost a bit more than the cheap straighteners found at WalMart. If you're willing to make the financial investment, you'll notice the difference. Plus a quality ceramic straightener is guaranteed to last you longer than a lame one. When it comes to hair straighteners it pays to pay.
