Flatirons or straighteners are multi-purpose hair styling tools. they are designed to smooth and straighten the hair, to make curls and waves. They are used by placing 1″ to 2″ sections of hair between the iron’s heated plates and press firmly, then run the iron down the hair to the ends
Never use highest temperature directly on a bunch of hair. it will not only cause damage but also only upper and lower of the bunch will be straighten, Th inside of the bunch will remain frizzy, giving overall a messy look. Always take small sections to ensure each hair has been ironed.
HAIR STRAIGHTENER BRUSH
As the name says, it straightens the hair as it glides on the hair. No need for a glove either because of the cool tips. First, plug in the bush and then turn it on until it reaches the temperature that you want. Take a hair section and apply the brush as close to the root and brush gently and slowly down towards the end.
When using your brush, make sure that each section of hair goes deeply into the brush so that all your strands are evenly straightened; brush slowly so that each section receives just enough heat to make the hair straight. Brushing slowly will also reduce the need for you to brush each section multiple times, and will also reduce the amount of time that your hair is exposed to heat
HAIR STYLING TONGS
They are used to create waves or curls in hair using a variety of different methods. There are many different types of modern curling irons, which can vary by diameter, material, and shape of the barrel and the type of handle.
Small-barreled iron is used to create tighter curls and to have loose waves a large-barreled iron is preferred.
Short hair? Use a small-barreled iron facing downward
Curl your hair while it’s in a high ponytail for quick, effortless waves
HAIR STYLING WANDS
A curling wand has no clasp and is used to create natural waves. Swirl a section of hair around the wand and hold the cord facing up.
Wrap from the root down, leaving some hair at the bottom out.
The bigger the barrel, the bigger (looser) the curls, and the more quickly they will fall out.
Allow your curls to cool before touching so that they can set.
A hair roller is a small tube that is rolled into a person’s hair in order to curl it, or to straighten curly hair, making a new hairstyle. The diameter of a roller varies as per need. Take a section of hair and Place a heated roller under the hair about halfway down the length. Wrap the bottom half of the hair around the roller.
Section your hair from the ears and clip most of the hair up, leaving only a small section down.
Leave the rollers in for 30-45 minutes.
Don’t brush, instead use fingers to set the curls
BLOW HAIR STYLER
It is usually a brush with a blower and different styling tools. It enables you to blow style your hair with one hand and one tool only. You don’t need to hold a blower and a comb separately. They are used as per instructions on label
A hairdryer (also called a blow dryer) is a device which blows cool or hot air. Hair dryers are usually used to speed up drying wet hair.
A lot of women start with the sopping wet hair. Your hair should be 60-to-65 percent dry before you even start to blow dry because it’s less damaging to your hair if you pre-dry.
Towel dry, then blow dry using only your hands for a bit, then use a brush—starting at the roots
STEPS TO USING HAIR STYLING TOOLS
- Shampoo and condition your hair preferable with frizz control and smoothing ingredients. Dry with a T-shirt to avoid any frizziness.
- Let the hair air dry for some time
- Apply heat protectant serum to avoid damage
- Blow dry your hair using a hair dryer starting from roots to ends.
- Now use your styling tools whether straightener, tong, wand or rollers to style in your own way
- Secure your hair with hair setting spray
Heat protectants are any product in form of serum or sprays that coat the hair with ingredients that provide a protection from high heated tools. Instead, provide nutrients to the hair. The most common ingredients used are Cyclomethicone and Dimethicone. They are used :
- to reduce the porosity of hair thus protecting them from humidity after styling
- to stop the loss of moisture from hair
- to make hair frizz free and detangled
