Straightened hair is very common these days since the year 2010 when it was first introduced in the beauty industry, where it can be compared to feathering in 1973, and teasing in 1985. There are a lot of people nowadays who are already enjoying getting straightened hair including girls, men, and women, and the most popular style of all is smooth, sleek, and straightened hair.
You can purchase hair styling irons from bargain retail stores, or you can go to a high dollar, high-end salons to have your hair done. Each style has something to offer you and their prices range from a very high $500 to a low $20.
It is important to know what benefits can be derived from a hair straightener as there are other important things that you need to take note of before purchasing one. 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. Since not all hair straightener irons are the same, there might be a tendency that you will not achieve the perfect look that you like especially if you are going to purchase the inexpensive one. 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.
If you are still not knowledgeable enough about all this, you should know that there are a lot of plates that you can choose from including glass, ceramic, metal, tourmaline ceramic blend, and titanium. Hair styling irons that are cheaper than the others are usually made out of glass or metal. Nevertheless, this might be a sad thing because this could result in damaged hair or chipping since this is often painted. The hair straightener that is made out of glass and metal might take longer to heat therefore resulting in uneven heating which may lead to damaged, dry, and frizzy hair.
There are still a lot of buyers who can afford the hair straightener with a plate that is made out of ceramic even if they are more expensive than those that are made out of glass and metal. 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 kind of hairstyling iron is the one that has tourmaline and ceramic blend because it is made out of the highest quality and will leave your hair straightened for a long time.
