Ionic Flat Irons – Do You Need One?
If you’re looking for salon quality hair that you can do at home, then you’re going to need the right tools and accessories. No matter what type of hair you’ve been blessed with, there will be times that you want a new style, whether that means straightening down your curls, or even creating loose waves out of your naturally straight hair.
No matter what your situation is, there’s one particular hair appliance that you’ve probably been considering – a set of ionic flat irons. If you want the best results and the freedom to style your hair whenever you want, then, yes, you’re absolutely going to need a set of flat irons. Here’s what you need to know when it’s time to start shopping.
Not Every Hair Iron is Created Equal
If you want professional results, you’re going to need to use professional equipment. The first thing that you need to be sure of, is that your irons are made from the right material. Professional products use solid ceramic plates, because this is the ideal material for transferring and maintaining heat. Ceramic also makes for a smooth surface that your hair can easily glide along, so you won’t have problems with your hair sticking or becoming damaged when you are using ceramic ionic flat irons.
Besides the material of the heated plate, there are some other important features that you’ll need to look out for. Temperature control is one of them. A standard professional straightener doesn’t need to have a variable temperature control, but it does need to have the right circuitry to ensure that an optimal temperature is maintained at all times. When you choose quality products, such as the irons that we offer at HSI Professional, you can have the benefit of consistent temperature, and you’ll also be able to adjust that temperature on certain models.
Take our Glider Ceramic Flat Iron as an example. This is a great affordable hair straightener with 1” ceramic plates. Temperature can be adjusted from 140°F, right up to 450°F, giving you the freedom to choose how much heat you will apply to style your hair. Different hair thickness and different styles can call for different temperature settings, so you’ll have a lot of flexibility to get the exact look that you want. Even with a 1” set of irons, you’ll be able to:
- Straighten your hair for sleek and bold styles.
- Straighten sections of your hair for a unique look (such as your fringe).
- Create curls and waves when you’ve mastered the right techniques.
- Reduce frizz without completely flattening your natural hair (simply turn down the temperature).
- Avoid the need for damaging chemical straightening treatments.
Irons can be used on both long and short hair styles, and as you gain more confidence with using a set of ceramic tourmaline ionic flat irons, you’ll be able to start experimenting with hair styles that you probably thought were only available at a high end salon!
Choose the Right Ceramic Styling Iron to Suit Your Needs
We’ve mentioned just one of our models, but there are plenty of options to choose from when you browse the HSI range. From smaller half inch travel irons (also great for short cuts), to 1 ¼” professional digital irons with floating plates, you can find the perfect model to suit both your needs and your budget. Choosing from our range means that you will enjoy dual voltage operation, which is especially helpful if you often travel overseas, and on some models you’ll even get options like auto shutoff for your safety.
All of our irons heat up within seconds of being turned on, so you won’t be wasting time when you’re getting prepped for your day or your next big event. Our irons also come with a style guide, developed with the consultation of leading hair stylists, and all of our products are backed by a one-year warranty, for your absolute peace of mind.
