All about straightening irons

The trend of the year is a tamed hair, whether your cut is long or short. The new straighteners offer tailor-made solutions for a very straight hair.

How to choose your straightener?

In order not to deceive you must take into account the nature of your hair.

  • Prefer irons with adjustable temperature.
  • Opt for a thermostat which rises to 230 ° C if they are difficult to smooth.
  • Check that it has a screen which makes it possible to visualize precisely the temperature.
  • Learn about the quality of plate coverings. Ceramics still have the rib, but titanium or microcrystal are more and more available and are even softer for the hair.

The right method

Here are some basic rules that apply to all models.

  • Use iron on dry hair not to burn them.
  • Banish styling products that damage the plates.
  • Pinch a thin wick between the plates and gently slide it up and down without stopping.
  • Always start by straightening the strands from below.
