How To Flat Iron Your Hair

Posted on Dec 5, 2008 at 4:45AM

Although it seems like a no-brainer, ironing your hair is trickier than one thinks.  We have burned our hair, our arms, and a few other appendages in our many years of using flat irons.

According to our stylist, a flat iron with a temperature gauge is best.  He advises that any temp over 350 can potentially burn your hair.

Unless you have a wet-dry straightener, it is imperative to dry your hair before you begin using your flat iron.  Never straighten wet hair with a flat iron!  The damage is irreparable.

Jamie has curly hair and spends much more time in the blow-drying process in an attempt to at least get her hair frizzy-straight prior to ironing her tresses. Beckie has fine hair and  just does a cursory blow-dry.

To protect your hair from the damaging temps of a flat iron, always use a hair serum or heat protective spray before you flat iron.

Use hair clips to section off your hair into one or two inch thick sections.

Starting at the crown, clamp down the flat iron at the root and pull the flat iron straight down the hair in one quick, smooth, and fluid motion.

We always start with a quick glide-through, and only if needed, we will return and flat iron that section again for maximum straightening.

To keep your tresses straight, add a finishing product to tame the frizzies and to maintain your style.








There are some great flat irons on the market, including Karmin. If you haven't already entered to win a $90 pink Karmin flat iron from GWBBB, enter now.

In the January issue of ShopSmart, a Consumer Report magazine, staffers revealed some flat iron standouts.

Nine straightening irons were tested in a humidity chamber and nine staffers tried them at home. Results of in-house tests and user feedback revealed that these products claims of ionic,tourmaline and nano silver technology did not make a difference in straightening performance. ShopSmart’s choice for smart splurge, the Infiniti Nano Silver by Conair SS9, $100, had all three features, but the bargain buy, Revlon Perfect Heat Ceramic RVST2001C, $30, had none. Paying a higher price also did not guarantee a better straightener and neither did the brand names. Conair was the maker of the top and bottom rated models while the CHI Ceramic GF-1001, $130 was the second-most-expensive straightener tested but did not rate anywhere near the top.
