Ceramic Flat Iron Tips

Feb 7, 2008
Ceramic flat irons can be found in every salon and the majority of homes today, but it is difficult for women to get the results they want if they don't understand how to properly use a ceramic flat iron. This article will help you get the easy, beautiful hairstyle that we are all striving for. There are 5 simple steps to help you achieve the hairstyle of your dreams using a ceramic flat iron:

1. Start out by using shampoo and conditioner on your hair so that you can work on a clean slate. Excess oils and grease weigh down your hair and prevent the flowing look you are trying to achieve. After you hair is clean, use a blow dryer to dry your hair and your hair will be ready for the ceramic flat iron.

2. When you turn on your ceramic flat iron, determine what hair type you have and set the temperature gauge accordingly. If your hair is thicker and course use a higher heat setting. On the other hand, you should use a lower temperature if you hair is damaged or thin. It is advised to start with a lower temperature first to avoid damage-- if you are not getting the results you are looking for you can increase the temperature.

3. Secure most of your hair on top of your head, to allow you to start with the bottom portion of your hair. Starting with the bottom of your hair makes the entire process much easier, and you will be more happy with the results. Finish each section that you are straightening, then pull down the next section and straighten it with the ceramic flat iron. Follow this process until you have moved through all the sections of your hair.

4. Do not over work your hair. With most ceramic flat irons it is necessary to pass over the hair once or twice for the hair to be straightened. If you find that you need to iron your hair more, turn up the temperature a little bit.

5. After your hair has been straightened, wait for a few minutes and then double check to see if there are any spots that need more work. You can view the back of your hair by using a small hand mirror, scan through your entire hair style so that there are no bad spots left. If needed, use the ceramic flat iron to smooth out the rough spots.

Following these 5 simples steps to use a ceramic flat iron will ensure that you will be a pro. Your hair will look great and it is very easy to do!
