In 2010, a new invention in the beauty industry was created known as the hair straightener, which is comparable to teasing in 1985 as well as feathering in 1973. The most popular style of all would be the smooth and sleek straightened hair which is applicable to any gender may it be women, men, and girls.
There are hair styling irons that you can avail of anywhere including the high dollar and high-end salons, and bargain retail stores as well. The price that you have to pay for is from a very low $20 to an expensive $500 since each hair straightener has a different style to offer.
Know the benefits that you are going to get from a hair straightener before you purchase one so that you will be able to enjoy it while beautifying yourself at the same time. Although it might be quite difficult for you to choose the one that is perfect for you since there are a lot of options for you to choose from. There is really a difference in the hair styling irons that you are going to get since they are not the same and if you chose the cheaper one you might not be able to get the results that you have been dreaming of. There are many things that you need to take into consideration when you buy a new hair styling iron such as the plate size, the warranty, the type of plates that come with it, and the heat settings.
A hair straightener contains plates and the most common types include those that are made out of glass, metal, titanium, ceramic, and tourmaline ceramic blend. Hair styling irons that are cheaper than the others are usually made out of glass or metal. Since the manufacturer needs to paint this, it might be an unfortunate thing because it might lead to damaging and chipping of your hair. It may take longer for glass plates and metal plates to heat that is why it might give you a negative result such as dry, frizzy, and damaged hair.
Hair straighteners that have a plate that is made out of ceramics might be more expensive than those that are made out of glass or metal plates but many can still afford it. If you have a hair straightener that is made out of ceramics, you can be assured that your hair is ironed evenly since it is able to give you a shinier, smoother, and less frizzy hair.
Hair straighteners that have a titanium plate are still able to give you an evenly ironed hair that is very smooth and the heat can be maintained so you will not have to worry about overheating.
The most expensive hair straightener of all are those that are made from tourmaline and ceramic blends since they are of the highest quality and your hair will remain straight for a very long time so you do not have to worry about having to do any retouch.
