Hair Care: How To Straighten Hair Like a Pro
Follow these hair care tips to achieve perfectly smooth, straight, shiny hair every time you flat iron your hair
Tip 3: Use the right materialLook for flat irons that use ceramic, tourmaline or titanium metals. They will heat more evenly causing less heat damage to your hair, says Moticka. They are the "gentlest on the hair" because they release negative ions which work to tighten the hair's cuticle. This produces a shinier, healthier, less frizzy look and feel, advises Moticka. On the flip side, be weary of "irons that are ceramic 'coated' or Teflon 'coated" as they will heat a little more unevenly, and tend to have a more drying effect."
