The flat iron hair straightener is a small appliance with two plates, that are heated to straighten the hair. You take a strand of hair and pass the hair straigtener along the length of the hair, from the top of your head to the bottom of the strand. The heat of the plates used to cause dry and damaged hair, but right now the plates have been developed, so that the temperature used is lower, but without losing its effectiveness and that’s why it doesn’t damage your hair anymore. There are some tips on how to use the hair straightener, so that it is safe and it fulfills its purpose. First of all, it is not advisable to use the flat iron hair straigtener on wet or damp hair, as it can damage the hair fibers and the result will not be as effective. Usually the correct temperature for optimal hair flattening is at a minimum of 120ºC, although it is advisable not to exceed 160ºC, especially if you have fine hair. When the straightener is hotter, you could even burn your hair. To properly straighten the hair, it should be done strand by strand, from the root to the tip and by slowly moving the straightener. There are several measures and types of plates, from small plates which are ideal for traveling, to thin plates that are perfect for making curls or waves, and medium width plates which are the most versatile, because they can both smoothen and make waves. Finally there are thick plates, which are perfect for smoothing thick or abundant hair. The quality of the iron will determine the level of effect on your hair, so a good quality aplliance will ensure that your hair is kept healthy, shiny and perfect, to show off the style that suits you best. Unfortunately, the fact that a device is of good quality, inevitably implies that its price is higher. But this can be explained easily by better materials, greater reliability, more safety, effectiveness in less time and more versatility. Therefore, if you are looking for a new hair straigtener, it is good to save up a bit longer, to buy a good hair straightener straight away, especially if you use it on a daily basis.
