When the hair is unruly, constantly knocking out of the hairstyle, frizzy, you can correct the situation with the help of an iron to straighten the hair. In this case, you need to be very careful about the choice of the device so as not to harm yourself.
Range of irons
In order to reduce the possible aggressive effect, it is necessary to choose the right iron. The most important thing is the material from which its plates are made. The safety of hair straightening depends on this directly.
Metal plates severely damage hair, so you can use such a device no more than four times a month, it is impossible to use it every day.
Ceramic plates are more gentle on hair. Irons with such a coating are considered good for home use and belong to the middle price category.
The highest quality, practically harmless to hair health, are plates with tourmaline and ionic-ceramic coating. Such devices are considered professional and therefore more expensive.
It is very convenient if the iron has a temperature regulator, because hair of different lengths should be straightened at different temperature conditions. Bangs - at a gentle temperature, the rest of the hair - at a higher temperature.
Features of hair straightening with an iron
Thermal hair straightening is dangerous more than twice a week. The structure of the hair can be severely damaged, and it will become faded and thinning.
It is very useful to use special heat protection products designed to protect hair, especially if it is dry and brittle.
In order to create a voluminous hairstyle, it is necessary to straighten only the outer strands and ends of the hair. In this case, the volume is preserved and the hair is smooth.
It is necessary to wash your hair before straightening, as dirt and residues of various styling products will harden the hair, which is very harmful to their health. If there is no opportunity to wash your hair, then the temperature regime should be chosen as the lowest one.
It is not recommended to straighten wet hair, while it is damaged and instead of smooth and silky hair, you get lifeless and thinned hair. When using thermal protection products, you need to wait until they are completely dry or dry with a hairdryer.
Straighten your hair by dividing it into small strands in width equal to the width of the iron. The smaller the strand, the better the effect.
You should not keep the iron in one place for a long time, there is a very high risk of burning your hair. A few smooth movements from top to bottom are enough. Then you can use varnish to fix the result.
If the hair is still damaged, you need to stop using the iron for a while and carry out therapy with various restorative hair masks.
