Straight vs. Curly Hair and how HSI Professional Products can help
While there are trends here and there, virtually anything is socially acceptable. Long, curly hair is a popular do, although, many are swapping this Rapunzel style for a wavy, short look. Long, straight hair is also an attractive trend, however, much to their chagrin, many girls cannot pull it off with their thin, frizzy hair. It finally comes down to: what best suits your natural hair? With thin hair, a short style would be best – with thick tresses, long is sexy. But curly or straight? It really just depends on you – and the day. Some women prefer one or the other, and other women like both, so they spice it up every once. No one is better at it than HSI Professional!
Which HSI Professional tool is best for you?
With so many options, you are bound to find something you love in HSI’s arsenal. With all kinds of curlers and straighteners, what if you cannot make up your mind, and cannot afford two? Well, we have several hair tools that act as a two-in-one!
The Marcel Wand, named after the French hairstylist who invented the curling iron, is believed to be the most versatile curling tool. Unlike most of the curling wands, this Marcel wand looks like a hybrid between a curling iron and a curling wand – it has a clip but it is not spring-loaded – this means that it can be maneuvered and manipulated easier than most curling tools. It rarely leaves kinks or snags in the hair and the results look natural, however, the technique can be a tricky one to master.
A Bubble Wand is generally very easy to use and would be good for a curling-novice. It has a textured/bumpy rod to help the user determine placement of the hair when curling. It “sifts” or guides the hair between the bubbles to yield a nice, even pattern of curls. The Spiral Iron creates yet another interesting look. With metal spirals looping around the metal rod this curler gives hair a type of vintage look – bigger curls that lead into smaller ones.
The Double-Barrel Iron is an interesting invention as the user wraps their hair in a figure eight pattern around the rods. Only an option for those with mid-length hair, a ripple like pattern develops, looking like hair does when let out of a tightly wound braid. While most flat irons look alike and act the same, the Straightening Brush allows you to straighten your hair while brushing it.
Generally, hair tools can be expensive, especially if they are not all multi-purpose. To get the looks you want, while saving money, it’s usually best to invest in hair curling sets.

Among our many HSI Professional Hair Products, argan oils are popular. Derived from the kernels of the Moroccan Argan tree (a native to Morocco), and eaten as a dipping sauce by the Moroccan people, argan oil is now widespread in the U.S. as nourishing body lotions. Used in shampoos and conditioners, argan oil is known for its moisturizing properties. It stimulates hair growth, revitalizes damaged strands, and infuses those gorgeous tresses with natural vitamins.
From heat protectant, to conditioners and shampoos, or leave-in treatments and hair masks, HSI has the argan thermal protector which is a lightweight spray that is spritzed or misted over the hair before a straight iron is used. As part of the straightening prep, the thermal protector creates an invisible barrier between the heated straightener and the hair, protecting it from the intense heat and preventing damage. This argan spray can also be used as a styling mist because it detangles the hair while giving it a sleek, healthy look, and moisturizes it as the hair is being worked.
The argan oil conditioner and shampoo work just like any other hair conditioner and shampoo. Intended to be applied to the damp hair while showering, these products rehydrate dry, damaged tresses. They will not affect colored hair and are said to be wonderful detangling agents. The argan leave-in hair treatment is to be done exactly as it suggests. Once sprayed into the hair, it should be left in. As it settles in, it soaks into the hair, moisturizing and nourishing the strands to give them a silky, rejuvenated look and texture. It infuses the hair with vitamins and moisturizing proteins to revive and strengthen the strands. They are sulfate-free and are natural products.
