A lot of girls have curly hair that want straight hair (and ironically the girls with the straight hair we desire, want the curly hair that we try to be rid of). So girls, a product you must desire for that straight hair is a straightener, correct, but then there comes the which is the best kind to purchase. The two most consider is between the traditional metal plates and the newer ceramic straighteners. So lets dig into this!
Before we go into the comparisons here, just make sure that when you straighten your hair, you use a hair moisturizer or a thermal protecting spray before you allow the plates to touch your hair. This will help prevent burning your hair and damaging your hair… nobody likes the fried look!
Let’s start with the traditional metal plates. These were the first straighteners and very popular amoung us girls. These are also the cheapest straighteners, and there could be reasons for this. These straighteners take a long time to heat up to the full temperture so there it is more time consuming. These metal plates are also more damaging to your hair, and have a higher potential for frying your hair. Yes, this straightener is cheaper, but you do get what you pay for in the metal ones.
Ceramic straighteners are better than the metal plate straightener. These straighteners heat fast, in as little as 30 seconds, and some heat up to 500 degrees, which is nice for the most course curly hair. These straighteners have also shown to straighten better, make your hair smoother while conditioning your hair, which does add shine and a glow to your hair. These staighteners are a bit more expensive, but very much worth every penny you spend.
You can buy either one of these straighteners at any store, but the place that always seems to have sales on them in store and online is Sally’s Supply. The address for the Myrtle Beach store is located at 1315 N. Kings Highway. For those of you who would rather see the store online and check things out there (along with reviews of products when available), the link is http://www.sallybeauty.com/styling-appliances/Hair09,default,sc.html and this is the Myrtle Beach store site. Good luck ladies on your next straightener purchase!
