When you want to style up your hair to create a striking look, you’ll need certain hairstyling tools such as blow dryers, curlers and hair straightening irons. Most women prefer to have their own hair styling tools to avoid spending money on getting their hairstyle done by a professional.
We know that you won’t like to spend hundreds of dollars on buying these styling equipments, nevertheless there are a few essential things that cannot be overlooked and these features may not be present in the cheapest of versions. We’re not saying you need to buy the most expensive ones, but you need to ensure that the hairstyling tool you’re buying has some of the most essential features, if you want it to deliver good results.
The first thing that you must look for is ceramic heating, because ceramic heating causes lesser heat damage to your hair. And if it’s a hair dryer the added advantage is that it will dry your hair faster.
The second thing to look for is a styling tool is whether it is based on ionic technology, as this technology helps to cut down on the frizz by smoothing out the hair cuticles using negative ions.
However, for ladies with delicate or limp hair, there is a little precaution to be observed, avoid using such tools too close to the roots or your hair may fall flat on your scalp and ruin your look. There’s also a new range of hair styling tools based on Tourmaline, a semi precious stone, which is far less damaging and carries the double benefit of more negative ions and infrared heat.
One constant high heat setting is not really desirable for proper styling of hair, because different type of hair requires different heat settings. And so you need hair styling tools which offer the option of increasing or lowering the heat settings as per your requirements. Thick, coarse and healthy hair may be able to sustain high heat, but if your hair is thin and fragile it may suffer a lot of damage. So look for a hair styling equipment which offers at least three or four different heat settings.
