Consider this the perfect flat iron for full hair. "It is great for thicker textures because it distributes heat evenly, allowing for less passes through the hair," explains stylist Lacy Redway. The plates "make it easier to straighten or curl longer hair lengths." Redway was responsible for  Tessa Thompson’s sleek ‘do on her past ELLE cover, so you know it’s top-notch.
I started this site after I made the decision to get a new hair straightener. I am not a novice with irons by any means, and I’ve had just about every kind imaginable except for some of the newest options. When I realized how far the industry had come in the last couple of years, I decided it was time to try something new. A good flat iron can last for years, as long as you look after it and make sure you buy one that’s robust enough to take what you put it through. By doing your homework up front, you can make sure you not only get the right straightener for your locks, but you don’t end up spending an inordinate amount of money on something that doesn’t work for you. Believe me, I’ve been there!
Working in sections, curl your hair. Using just the wand (and not the clamp at the bottom of the wand that "holds" the hair as it curls), wrap your section of hair around the barrel. Be sure not to overlap your hair, as this will reduce heat and result in limp sections. Use your fingers to hold the edge of the section of hair close to the barrel without burning your hair. Doing this rather than using the clamp will prevent crimps in the curls.
When taming coarse, wavy or curly hair, sometimes you need a little to kick it up a notch. That’s why we love that the CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Flat Iron can reach a maximum temperature of 475° F and heats up in under a minute! With this hair straightener, say goodbye to wasted time waiting for your tool to heat up, and get styled and out in the door!
It is important to consider what options are important to you when selecting a hair straightener. You must select a hair iron with a heat setting that fits your needs. If you have fine hair, a lower heat setting may be sufficient. However, thick coarse hair may require a higher heat setting to achieve your desired look. Plate size should also be considered. A flat iron with small plates might be best for shorter hair, while a flat iron with larger plates might be best for longer hair. Some hair straighteners have features such as temperature readouts and rollers that might be important to your needs.
You wage an endless battle against frizz so your hair straightener is one of the most important tools in your bathroom. When it is time to upgrade to a more professional model or replace an old straightener that has seen better days, check out eBay. Easy search functions make it simple for you to find a ceramic hair straightener that fits your style and your budget. Many people prefer ceramic, titanium, or tourmaline plates, and some straighteners come with interchangeable plates in different materials or designs to create crimped or wavy looks. Pick up a mini hair straightener that is perfect for traveling, and you always look good no matter where you go. Many reliable sellers on eBay offer a vast inventory of straighteners in different colors, styles, and types. All you have to do is find the hair straightener that suits you and maybe pick up a spare, just in case.
Bio Ionic 10X Pro Styling Iron 1" - Nano Ionic - with Vibrating Plates The Bio Ionic 10X Pro Styling Iron 1 Inch is part of the Luxe Pro Styling Collection. Natural Volcanic Rock Minerals infused into the Bio Ionic Luxe Pro Styling Collection are uniquely refined to emit negative ions that drive tiny water molecules deep into the hair. Hair becomes hydrated and conditioned on the inside, while the outer cuticle layer lies flat and smooth, trapping moisture, giving it a vibrant shine.
The nano ceramic plates in this straightener deliver far-infrared heat, a gentler alternative in and of itself. As if that weren't enough, there's also a reservoir where you can pour in some of the (included) argan treatment and thermal protectant, creating a conditioning steam that will strengthen and safeguard strands while you straighten. Admittedly an extra step, sure, but one that's well worth it.
