Ceramic Hair Straighteners – How is it Effective?
The things that you can do with a hair straightener, the lengths you can go with a ceramic hair straightener. A few swipes of this tool and inches can be added to your hair. It is amazing the kinks a person will have in their tresses, even if they are considered pin straight. Our environment, especially humidity, plays a large part in the ‘fullness of our hair’. Unfortunately, water and heat combined will send your hair into a pouf that would rival that of any Victorian era aristocrat. Unfortunately for us the pouf means damage, the brunt of it sustained in our roots and ends. Why then should we use a hairstyling tool that uses more heat to supply us with smooth tresses? The fact is we shouldn’t and we don’t have to.
The newest edition to the straightener world is that of the ceramic styled ones. The incorporated use of ceramic plates and infrared heat give the needed lengthening and smoothing affect without the added damage. Your kinky curls can become smooth waves. In fact you can eliminate the waves completely with these straighteners as well. A short curly bob can become a sleek medium one. While a few swipes can bring out those choppy layers that sometimes become lost within the rest of your style. Depending on the type of ceramic straightener that you use, you may even be able to use it on damp hair. This will eliminate the need for a blow dryer which is yet another form of heat that may damage your locks.
Returning to the former topic of lengthening any hair type, you can also achieve other styles aside from straight. Don’t be fooled by the name if yielded right this tool can give you waves, loose curls and even spunky flips. It all depends on how much time and how broad your imagination is. These tools come in different sizes to better fit different lengths. They also feature varying degrees of heat. To determine what setting is best for your hair perform a strand test similar to what you would do if you were going to dye your hair. Take a section of hair and set you styler to the recommended heat setting for your given texture. Try it out and adjust accordingly.
With a ceramic straightener you have no need to worry about damage. Use this as much as you need. Remember though that in using stylers such as this it is best to compensate with added conditioners. This can be done with either leave in conditioners or rinse out.
