Curls Got You in a Dither? Go for Hair Straighteners!

By: Katie Grea

Honey, I don't know what you are so upset about! Your hair looks terrific - honestly! No I am not just saying that so you will hurry up or we will be late for supper. The curls look real great ' but ' hey ' if you don't like them then use that thing you used the other day. What do you call them? Hair straighteners! Yes, go use that.

If you really do hate the curly look and can't seem to do anything "with" it, then it's time to take a look at what hair straighteners can do for you. You might not believe this, but they can take all the curl right out of your hair so fast you'd think you were born with naturally straight hair. Sure it takes a bit of time to get the whole head done in sections, but the end results are well worth it.

What can they do for you? Well first, make sure you don't get one that has no control thermostat on it. By that we mean, check to see if it has a switch that sets the temperature you want, otherwise you could literally wind up cooking your hair by overheating it. Not a good idea. Besides it would dry your hair out something terrible.

See if the plates are ceramic or not. If they are, bonus ' good hair straighteners do have ceramic plates. Next check the edges of the plates. Rounded edges give you a nicer, smoother finish and not the kinked jagged thingie bumpy weird section you can get with squared edges.

If you're not so sure you want to spend the money to get a hair straightener, then pop off down to the local salon and have them fix your do for an experiment. Once you see the results you can then decide if you want to buy one and which one would work for you. While you're at the salon ask them what they use! Their supplies will be a bit different that what you will find on the market, but they at least can give you a good idea of what to look for. Also ask them for other tips as well, like is it ok to have a Teflon coating on the plates. PSSST! The answer is yes, because it keeps the hair from sticking to the plates at those high temperatures so it will reduce the chance of you burning your hair.
