You can make a spectacular and neat hairstyle not only in a beauty salon, but also yourself at home. The market has long had a lot of styling products and various devices that facilitate the process of creating styling: curling irons help to curl curls and form voluminous curls, irons – to straighten hair and make it smooth.
Recently, hair straighteners are gaining more and more popularity. Now they have a rebirth, because in Soviet times, such devices were already in great demand, and it is difficult to imagine at least one fashionista of that period who did not have such a device in her arsenal. Modern hair straighteners differ from those. Now these are multifunctional stylers that do not harm the hair and cope with styling in a matter of minutes.
The editorial board compiled a rating review, selecting for it the 8 best hair straightening combs, which received the highest user ratings.
An electric comb, although it straightens the hair, does not give the same effect as an iron. Rather, it gives the hair smoothness, that is, it turns out the same as when styling with a hairdryer and brushing, only much faster and more comfortable. You can take the device with you on trips to always have the opportunity to tidy up your hair.
When choosing, you should pay attention to the following characteristics:
- There are three types of devices: flat for shine, round rotatable for volume, rectangular for slightly curly hair.
- It is worth buying the model that will cope with the task better than others. Everything is individual here.
- More often found with tourmaline and ceramic. These materials make the hair straightener safe for hair, as they do not electrify or damage, conduct heat well, evenly distributing it over the surface of the plates or teeth.
- Cheap appliances are made from plastic and metal. It is better to immediately exclude such options, as they can ruin the hair, burn and dry it out, cause a split, brittleness, and so on.
- Pay attention to the teeth as well. The tips should be rounded so as not to scratch the scalp or damage the curls. The number of teeth and the frequency of their arrangement in a row affects the final styling result – the more, the better the effect. Some models have natural or mixed bristles. Such devices are more expensive, but the high price is justified.
The maximum temperature ranges from 150 to 300 degrees. The more unruly and thick the hair, the higher the temperature should be and vice versa. For problematic spoiled hair, it is worth purchasing devices with a maximum temperature of 150-200 degrees, so as not to overpay.
- Wireless rechargeable devices are suitable for travel and various kinds of trips, but if you are more often at home, then there is no need for such a device, so feel free to purchase models with a wire, powered by the mains.
- Please note that the cord must have a sufficient length of at least one and a half to two meters so that it is convenient to lay it without standing next to the outlet. It is also important that the wire be rotatable, then changing the position of the device, the cord will rotate without creating any inconvenience.
