A hair straightener is a great tool to have around for women who like to change things up every once in a while with a totally different hair style. Find a good one from by Conair, Chi Home or Dockers. Want to flatten out curls or tame runaway frizz? Do it the quick and easy way with an electric straightener.
Choose a design that heats up fast and has a variety of heat settings. Most irons heat up to 450 degrees, so an automatic shutoff and a long swivel cord are good safety features to consider. A flat iron straightener is the basic design, and is available in many sizes, shapes and widths; some with custom heat resistant carry cases included.
Many hair irons use a special ceramic product called tourmaline that creates negative ions to reduce the static electricity that can cause frizzy hair. A ceramic hair straightener heats up quickly—some models in as little as 15 seconds—and can keep hair straight for most of the day. Choose a slender iron to get as close to the scalp as possible. A straightener designed with wide blades is good for heavy-duty curl control.
To flatten and straighten hair while adding a long lasting and professional looking shine, use a hair straightener with silicone. The silicone strip also provides a smooth surface on the iron that can help prevent gaps and crinkles when the hair is pressed. Choose a design that heats evenly so there are no hot spots, and get a smooth style without damaging the hair.
A wet or dry straightener can be used on wet hair, right out of the shower, and dries it as it adds a bit of shine with a silicone strip. Some designs include special steam vents built into the iron to remove just the right amount of moisture as the hair is flattened.
