Multi Purpose Hair Straightners

Nov 23, 2007
In the past few months there is a new idea to do with straightners not only do they straighten but curl your hair too if you use the straightners in the way shown. In the past straightners have continued to change - not only to straighten your hair but to curl, dry, add shine etc. the list continues. Having looked at the multi purpose straightners I have come up with a list of the most popular:

* The Morphy Richards hair straightners can be used to curl your hair as well as straighten as well as giving flicks to the ends of your hair either inwards or to flick out its any easy thing to do and it adds some fun to your hair. The way to curl you hair using the straightners is to clamp your hair straightners over a section you have divided and try to keep the heated plates as close to the roots as possible. As you pull your hair straightners through your hair, turn them 180 degrees by rotating your wrist, making sure you maintain an even, gentle tension on your hair. To produce tighter curls clamp the straightners harder, and rotate the straightners more and also increase the tension on your hair.

* Drying your hair whilst straighting this is now possible with a few brands of hair straighting including Hair Tools FHI Ceramic Hair Straightner, T3 Tourmaline Wet to Dry Hair Straightners and Remington Wet 2 Straight straightners. They say, towel dry your hair, then use the straightners like you would usually but do small slim sections at a time not missing out any. They will lock in any moisture which you usually lose when you blow dry your hair and control any frizz you may usually get.

* Adding shine to your hair they say this is now possible by straightening your hair using special straightners. Years ago there were the Babyliss Straight and Shine Steam Straightners which for 7years ago worked very well at straightening your hair and seemingly adding shine to your hair. There is now a newer version of these called Thermaglass Salon Slim Hair Straightners, these are supposed to give your hair a smoother and straighter look whilst giving your hair extra shine.

There are also different widths of hair straightners the wide ones and the slim ones. The wide ones are better for people with thicker and longer hair whilst the slim ones would take a lot of effort to straighten thick hair but work well on long hair just takes a little longer.

Another option to consider is the temperature that the straightners reach. There are a lot on the market now that reach up to 230 degrees, which is very hot. There are upsides and downsides to this, an upside is that your hair may be straightened quicker with less hassle but the downside is that your hair may become more brittle and damaged from the heat. On some models of hair straightners you can decide on what temperature you want to use from 100 degrees to 230 degrees, which I think is a good idea. Maybe when you first straighten your hair after washing it you have it hotter but when you just want to iron out a few curly bits you use a lower heat.

Not only are black ones available but fuchsia and baby pink ones are available, but you will pay a premium for pink ones - the question is, is it worth it?
