Tips for Choosing A Revlon and Conair Hair Dryer and Straightener
If you desire straight hair, but you do not have it, then the only way to get it is by using a flat iron or hair straightener. Of course, not every straightener will work for your hair and depending on the type of hair that you have, you may need something different than the next person. Below, we will go over some tips to help you choose the right flat iron to get the job done correctly ?ѹ the first time.
1. Straighteners by Hair Type
When it comes to your hair type, you really need to pay attention to the straightener and the type of hair it is designed for. For example, if you have thick hair, but choose a straightener designed for thin hair, you will not receive the best results.
Thick, curly, and coarse hair needs a straightener that can deal with it quickly. The best type of material for your flat iron to be made out of is either tourmaline, ceramic, or titanium. Your ideal temperature to straighten your hair is anywhere between 380 degrees and 410 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything less than this will not get the job done.
If you have normal, wavy, or medium thick hair, then your best option for plate material is also ceramic, titanium, and tourmaline. Your optimum temperature for best results is 360 degrees to 380 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything above 380 degrees will burn your hair and cause damage.
Lastly, if your hair is fine or thin, then your ideal temperature rage is below 360 degrees Fahrenheit and anything above that will fry your hair. The best plate material for you is going to be either ceramic or tourmaline plates.
2. Plate Size by Hair Type
When it comes to the size of the plates, you need to make sure you are choosing the right size, otherwise, you will spend hours straightening your hair or you will not make enough progress and give up.
If your hair is thick, curly, or coarse, then you need plates that are anywhere between one to two inches for longer than shoulder length hair and one to one and a half inches for shorter than shoulder length hair.
For normal, wavy, and medium hair, your ideal plate size is between a half inch and one and a quarter inches for shorter than shoulder length hair and one and a quarter to two inches for shoulder length and longer.
If you have fine or thin hair, you can use any type of plate size that works for you. Ideally, you will choose something smaller because your hair is thin and does not require a thick plate, but the choice is left up to you. Final Thoughts on Flat Irons
When it comes to your hair type, you need to make sure you are picking out the right flat iron. For example, thick and coarse hair needs to be straightened with a professional flat iron as standard ones will not do the trick.
In addition, you need to always practice safety when using your straightener as they can burn you or your hair and cause serious damage.
