Finding the right straightener, curler, and three barrel iron for your hair is a challenge many women face. There are so many options out there, each with its benefits and disadvantages. Take a look at ceramic hair tools versus the other options to discover what will work best for your hair and your situation. Ceramic hair tools will not only do a better job at getting the look you want from your hair, they will also be a better protection against the heat.
The Right Products
When styling your hair, it is important to not only use the right tools, but the products that will protect your hair as well. No matter what type of curling iron or straightener you use, applying heat to your hair has the potential to be damaging. Do all you can to protect it longer. Use conditioner to keep your hair moisturized. In addition to this, use a heat protectant before applying heat. This will save your hair from split ends, helping to get the look you want while keeping it from damaging.
There are three main types of plates for hair tools: metal, ceramic, and glass. Each of these has advantages, and disadvantages. While metal plates are most often the least expensive to invest in, they are also the most damaging to your hair. They will easily harm your hair, causing more problems than they are worth. In addition to this, they will take longer than their ceramic counterparts to warm up. Once they do reach their desired heat, it is not evenly distributed across the surface. This will easily lead to burning hair, quickly creating split ends.
Ceramic plates have become much more popular, especially with those who are in the hair industry professionally. The additional cost associated with these is far worth it as they not only work better, but will last longer as well. The technology used with ceramic plates will help to keep your hair silky, soft, and shiny, but most important healthy. These plates will heat up quickly and evenly to save you time in the morning. They are smoother than others, with the option to adjust the temperature if necessary.
There are many advantages to purchasing a ceramic hair tool rather than one of the other options. While they may be initially more expensive, the benefits will far outweigh this small cost.
