When you’ve got plenty of options to choose from, it can be very tricky to find the right hair straightener for you. Hair flat irons differ in terms of size, plating, weight, price and results. Here are some of the things to consider in looking for top hair straighteners.
The Plates. These are the most important component of styling irons because this is the one responsible for styling your hair. There are many materials used in the iron’s plates. Some of these are titanium, ceramic, tourmaline and silver coated plates. Each material has its own special characteristic to make your hair beautiful. However the most important characteristic of the plates is its texture. You want to make sure that the plates are mirror smooth and glide easily on your locks. You don’t want your hair breaking because of rough, uneven plates.
Temperature Control. Good hair irons have precise temperature control with a wide range, variable setting. Irons should be able to keep the temperature of the plates at a constant temperature without continuously heating to the point that it destroys itself. Poor quality flat irons that have one temperature setting only have a simple mechanical thermostat that shuts off the current when it reaches a certain temperature. The best irons usually have digital circuitry that can precisely heat the plates to a certain temperature and keep it constant. Ti should also have a wide and variable temperature setting to match your styling needs. Thin hair needs only a small amount of heat to become straight while thicker tresses require higher temperatures.
There are many hair straighteners on the market claiming to be the best one for you. Make sure to choose the one that will provide you with the results you like without damaging your hair. Comparing different brands side by side will help you get the best one that suits your needs.
