Hair Straightener- What Should I Use?

You can achieve hair salon like results at home with a bit of practice and some good tools, but some women prefer to let the professionals at the salons do the job. There are many different issues to consider when it comes to selecting the right hair straightener or hair straightening method that is right for you. It is important to make a right choice for your hair type or you will be unhappy with the results.

The best investment when selecting hair tools is to make an investment in a good hair straightener. These are very versatile hair tools and your hair will benefit from these tools, no matter if you have wavy, curly, thick, fine, naturally straight, or even damaged hair. The best-known hair straightening and styling tools are manufactured and supplied by GHD, which is an acronym for Good Hair Day.

The most important issue when selecting a hair straightener is to understand the Plate types used in the tool. The plate types used in these hair tools today are glass, metal, titanium, and ceramic, and in some tools, combinations of titanium and ceramic are also used. The price of these tools varies according to the plates used in the tool.

Glass or Metal plates are common in less expensive hair straighteners, but these are simply not suitable for any type of hair. These plates take too much time to heat up quickly and it takes more time to prepare the tool for styling. When the plates do become hot, the heat is not distributed evenly and causes hot spots to appear on these metal and glass plates, which can singe your hair. Metal and Glass plates may also be painted with color, which chips or peels, and results in snagging, pulling and tearing the hair. These cheap hair straighteners damage your hair and make it look unhealthy. Investing a bit more in quality tools from companies like GHD is better than damaging your hair and repenting later.

Hair irons with Ceramic plates are common as they imbibe and distribute heat evenly, thus preventing hot spots, which damage hair. These plates also heat up quickly and you can style your hair sooner. The ceramic plate smoothes the hair and makes it look shiny and healthy extensions for black hair.

Hair styling tools from reputed and branded companies like GHD use Ceramic plates. Using a branded hair straightener from a reputed company ensures that your hair is not damaged due to the tool. A hair straightener with titanium plates, is also an excellent option, as they are not only extremely strong, but are also light in weight, so you will not get sore arms while styling your hair. Like the ceramic plates, these plates also heat up quickly and evenly.
