Choosing the best flat iron and hair straightener, gifts for your hair type

You want lush straight hair like the stars but you cannot afford to pay a personal stylist like the stars, what can you do? You can buy the flat iron or hair straightener and try your luck. What if you want to buy a hair straightener as a gift? You need to know how to choose the best flat iron or hair straightener.

What to look for in a flat iron or hair straightener

You need to know the type of hair the person who will be receiving the flat iron or hair straightener has. The type of hair will determine how you choose the best equipment to do the job. Generally speaking, people with curly hair will need more specialized flat iron or hair straightener. There are generally four categories of people that might benefit from using a flat iron.

Really Curly hair: If the person that will be using the flat iron or hair straighterner has really curly hair, you will need to buy the flat iron or hair straightener that generates the most heat. That will be anything from 450 degree and upwards. The more heat you can get from your flat iron or hair straightener the better the result. It will also require less time to straighten the hair. If these types of professional flat irons or hair straighteners are not used carefully you might end up burning your hair.

Wavy hair: If you have wavy hair or the person that will be receiving the gift has wavy hair, you might want to buy something similar to the one mentioned above. However, you could still get away with buying a flat iron or hair straightnere that is between 250 degree to 300 degree. That being said, the less heat you get from your flat iron or hair straightener, the more time it will take to get your hair done. You just need to understand that the basic idea is to get more heat from your flat iron or hair straightner.

Straight Frizzy hair: People who have natural straight might also benefit from flat irons or hair straightener. The only thing is that they can buy the most common flat irons or hair straighteners on the market. People with straight hair do not generally require a lot of heat. What is the point of using flat iron or hair straightener if you already have straight hair? Some people with straight hair will also like to put a little bit of shine to their hair. Additionally, after washing your hair or getting your hair wet due to sweat or rain, you hair might not fall neatly like you want. You hair might become a little frizzy. That is why a flat iron or a hair straightener can be useful.

Really Thick Hair: If you have really thick hair and curly hair, it will be a real challenge to get your hair to fall flat. Because of the density, you might have to use the flat iron or straightener or a regular basis. Some people use chemical hair straighteners to help reduce the volume and make the hair fall flat. By the way, most people have more hair density on one side of the head than the other. You probably haven't noticed that. That can also explain why it is difficult to get perfect symmetry after having your hair done at the hairdressers. On side of your hair seem to appear higher than the other. There isn't much you can do about that. That is why flat irons and hair straighteners were invented.

If you want a professional hair straightener and you are ok with spending around $140 I would highly recommend the Karmin G3 Salon Pro, it heats up to 450f with temperature control, tourmaline ceramic plates with rounded edges which makes it great for also curling your hair. Also has a 3 year warranty. If you buy from http://HairProductsPro.com they are also giving away a free heat matt/carrying case. If you do look at other irons make sure to stay away from irons with painted plates (colored plates) these can damage your hair. You can also check reviews at http://hairstraightenersreviews.com to see their ranking of the top 10 hair straighteners. You can also check Google for reviews on Karmin. Good luck and I hope this helps.
