A Few Tips On Choosing The Best Flat Iron

By Jennifer Smith

Many women will like to use a flat iron or head straighteners in order to straighten their hair and make themselves look as good as they possibly can. When you go out looking for a flat iron you will certainly have many different options to choose from, and this can make finding the right product quite difficult. As such, here are a few tips that should help you to pick out the right hair straighteners for your specific hairstyle.

The heat and the power of the product will be an important consideration you will have when identifying the ideal hair straighteners for you. Any product that lacks these two features will certainly not work very well and you therefore need to consider the type of hair that you have when working out what sort of feature is best for your style. For example, if you have curly hair then it will be very important for you to choose a product that has a high temperature range in order to give the best results.

The irons plates should also be ceramic in order to provide the best possible results that you can. Ceramic plates will heat up evenly through the iron and this will provide a much smoother finish to the straightening of your hair. In addition to this you will be much less likely to provide some sort of damage to your hair when using ceramic plates as well.

If you have really stubborn hair then you may also want to look for a flat iron that has tourmaline technology as well. This will give off a negative ions which will it leave even the most stubborn of hair looking silky and soft.

You also need to consider the length of your hair. If you have short hair then it may be a good idea to get an iron that has slimmer plates, typically between 1 inch and half an inch. This will allow you to straighten specific parts of your hair more easily and therefore your whole styling process will be more simple and the results will be better.

On the other side of the coin, those who have longer hair can choose to get plates that are up to 2 inches wide as this will enable them to capture larger sections of their hair so that they can go for a smoother straighten. Not only will this provide a better finish and better results, but it will also cut down on the time that you have to spend styling.

Weight is an important factor to consider as well. If you have a shorter haircut and therefore are using a smaller set of hair straighteners then the weight will not be such a problem, but for those of you who have longer hair and who therefore need to use a larger product, straightening your hair with a heavy iron can provide a great deal of strain to your arm. Therefore you should aim to get a lightweight iron.

Price is also something that will have an enormous range as well. You should really be too concerned about price as while at the more expensive irons can topple over $150, it is certainly easy to get irons that are a third of this.
