Smooth, straight hair looks gorgeous whether stepping out at night with friends or walking into an important business meeting. It’s a versatile look that goes from school or work to after hours fun without effort. However, did you know that all hair straighteners and flat irons are not created equal? It’s true. To keep your hair healthy when straightening, it’s essential to find the right straightener with proper heating capabilities and technology so that you can straighten hair without damage.
How to Find the Right Straightener
Heat styling dries your hair. Straightening techniques rely on heat to smooth, but without the proper products and tools, your hair will become dry, brittle, and lose its natural shine. To find the right hair straightener, look for a flat iron that has been designed to protect your hair with each use. It needs to be able to smooth hair without frizzing and burning the ends. It should be easy to hold and handle, with multiple heat setting options to best serve your hair, any day and any style. To find this high-quality type of hair straightener, look for the newest magnesium technology.
The magnesium technology found in the ion™ Magnesium PRO Straightener offers state-of-the-art styling for all hair types. With magnesium plates, the straightener always glides smoothly over the hair, never pulling or snagging. This means no breakage and healthier, frizz-free hair.
The ion™ Magnesium PRO Straightener’s advanced technology also works to preserve your hair’s natural moisture with each pass through a section. Maintaining the hair’s moisture during heat styling is key to protect it from damage while enhancing its shine and manageability.
Top Tips to Straighten Hair Without Damage
You can have smooth, straight hair that’s healthy and damage-free. It just takes a bit of care and maintenance. To straighten your hair without damaging it, keep these top tips in mind:
- Always apply a Heat Protection Spray first to damp, towel-dried hair.
- Use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the protection spray through the hair.
- In between heat styling sessions, opt for a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
- Use hair clips to section your hair when straightening. This keeps random strands at bay and makes it easy to focus the heat on each section for the best results.
- Make sure your straightener has variable heat controls, like the ion™ Magnesium PRO Straightener
Treat hair to an overnight repair solution once a month to ensure your hair stays smooth and healthy when heat styling regularly.
