Factors to Cosider
As there are wide variety of flat irons available, choosing the right straightener for your hair can be a tough task. Which is why, before selecting the flat iron, you should go through the following guidelines.
The temperature of the flat iron plays an important role when it comes to choosing the right iron. Every time you use the iron over your hair, it will lose about 80ºF of heat. So if the flat iron has low wattage, then the reheating capacity will be low. Hence stick with flat irons that have a heating element between 40―60 watts.
Now I know that you must be wondering why I haven't included the price factor for basing the decision to purchase a flat iron. The point is, there are other, more important factors than just the price.
You can pay as little or as much as you want but if you are stuck with an okay flat iron, then it won't do you any good. Plus, protecting your hair from any damages and giving it a healthy, smooth look is more important. Am I right?
Whenever you look for a flat iron (regardless of the type of hair), it is very essential that you read the reviews for complete information of that product. You really don't want to rush into it and buy the wrong flat iron for your hair type.
