We've all done it, at least a hundred times: you walk into the office after a long morning commute, and sit down with a hot cup of coffee when something jogs your memory and you panic... did you remember to turn off your straightener? If you're lucky, you have someone at home that can check for you. If not? You either sweat it out, or rush home to make sure you did. 9 times out of 10? It's off.
But what about that one time? High heat devices like flat irons are definitely fire hazards. When left on and unattended, as things heat up, things could get dangerous. It's probably better to avoid using flat irons all together, right? Wrong! All you need to do is buy a flat iron with an auto shut off feature, just like the ones that we provide at HSI Professional.
Why Does it Really Matter?
Think it's a bit over-dramatic? Fires aside, how about the susceptibility of straighteners to get so hot that they melt surfaces they encounter after an extended period of time? It may not have caught on fire, but it could have, and either way? That hair brush handle is pretty much melted and ruined; now you need a new one.
Here's the deal: at HSI, we provide high quality flat irons with auto-shut off features. Most of our Glider flat irons come with this feature to ensure in case you forget, it won't become a fire hazard (or a melting hazard) – so, it's safe for your environment.
Safe for Your Environment, AND Safe for Your Hair
Our HSI Professional Ceramic Tourmaline flat irons are not only incredibly efficient, but they also come with several features that promote a safer environment. In short, tourmaline is a crystal that is ground into a fine powder and infused into the ceramic plates of the flat iron. When heated, this substance produces a huge amount of negative ions, enough to counteract the positive ions found in dry and damaged hair.
This means that ceramic tourmaline flat irons are better at avoiding hair damage and neutralizing ions that cause static and frizz. In addition to using ceramic tourmaline, every flat iron HSI uses HeatBalance technology with 8 micro-sensors to regulate the temperature and evenly distribute heat while the hair straightens.
This ensures that you don't run that extreme heat through your hair more than you absolutely have to, and that when you do the heat is distributed evenly. So, when you buy a Professional ceramic tourmaline straightener, you're buying a product that's actually safe for your hair.
Other Ways to Increase Your Safety
Straighteners with auto shut off features are only the beginning of what we offer in regards to creating a safer environment for you. At HSI, we also provide accessories to complete your arsenal of salon products, some of them directly geared towards safety. One thing we provide that our customers love? A heat resistant flat iron stand. No more questioning whether or not the countertop will be effected by the heat, or whether or not the towel you lay it on will catch on fire.
Forget the possibility that your flat iron will melt or burn whatever surface it touches. HSI has a smart solution – a product for storing the device while in use that also features heat release air vents for when you're stowing it away. The product is safe and 100% heat resistant, and it can easily be stuck on mirrors, ceramic surfaces, and mounted on walls. As long as you're storing the device safely, your environment will be protected from heat exposure. One last helpful item for keeping you safe while you use this particularly high heat product: a heat resistant glove.
Burns are no fun, but they can be tough to avoid when you're dealing with high heat products, even HSI Professional products. You don't have to put up with that, though, when you purchase a Heat Resistant Glove from HSI Professional. We have a one-size fits all glove that is heat resistant and incredibly soft. When you wear the glove, those pesky burns simply aren't a problem anymore. It's true: at HSI Professional, we can provide a fool-proof way for you to straighten your hair effectively, efficiently and safely – in every sense of the word.
Don't make the mistake of figuring out on your own just how detrimental it can be to use a straightener without a few extra measures of safety!
