Hair Straighteners Description
While curly or wavy hair holds its own charm, glossy and pin-straight hair has been in trend for long and almost never goes out of fashion. Some celebrities have even made it their signature hairstyle regardless of the trend. Even people who already have straight hair, use hair straightening products to give a glossy shine to the hair. While there are many techniques to straighten hair, the most common and the best way is by using a hair straightener. A wide variety of hair straighteners is available in the market with different sizes, types, heat intensity, materials and prices. Hair straighteners are pretty versatile little gadgets that not only straighten your hair but also help you curl and give a wave to your straight hair with different techniques.
Modern hair straighteners also come in the form of straightening brushes and steam hair straighteners that take out the frizz without drying out your hair. Hair straighteners have flat plates that heat up and straighten both sides of hair by passing heat and locking in moisture, hence getting rid of frizz and leaving your hair straight and silken. The plates on a hair straightener come in a variety of materials such as Ceramic, Titanium, Tourmaline etc. The best plate is the one that suits your hair type. When buying a hair straightener, always make sure to do thorough research on the kind of material you want or whether you want a consumer-level or professional type of device. No matter what sort of hair straightener you decide on, remember never to buy the ceramic-coated models as they wear out very soon and don't straighten your hair effectively. Ceramic plates work pretty fine but ceramic-coated plates are a definite no-no. Always use a heat protectant serum before using any sort of heating device, to avoid heat damage to your precious tresses. A few of the best hair straightener brands are Remington, Conair, Hai, GHD, Babyliss, and Paul Mitchell.
