NewVo Beauty, an online beauty supply store, recaps the 5 things that you should look for when purchasing a flat iron.
According to a Juicy Mag Online article published on October 30th titled "5 Key Things To Look For When Purchasing A Quality Flatiron!!!" it is important to know what you are looking for in a flat iron. Not all flat irons are appropriate for every type of hair, so all factors need to be considered.
The article shares these 5 tips to help you determine which flat iron is right for your hair:
- Temperature: A high heat setting does not necessarily indicate a quality tool. A high temperature can actually damage your hair. "It is very important to understand that tools should never be used on the highest setting," says Sara Greenstone, a representative for online beauty supply store NewVo Beauty. "Always use a thermal protectant spray and utilize flat irons on a low heat setting so you don’t risk damaging your hair."
- Titanium and Ceramic: When searching for a flat iron, look for these two metals. Titanium plates are smooth, so they will not snag hair. Opt for this type of flat iron if you have coarse hair that is hard to straighten. Ceramic plates are great because they distribute heat evenly. These make hair smooth and sleek.
- Plate size: Plates can range from ½" to 2". If you have fine hair or a short cut, choose a smaller plate. Those who have longer and thicker hair should choose a larger plate.
- Curved vs. straight plates: A curved plate can give you the option of adding waves or curls to your hair. Straight plates only allow you to create a flat look.
- Reputable brands: The article recommends using reputable brands such as Baby Bliss, T3 and Conair because they are high quality and come with great warranties. "You never want to just pick out any random flat iron," says Greenstone. "You could make the mistake of choosing one with a metal plate that can destroy your hair, or choosing one that only has one heat setting."
