What You Should Know When Hair Styling With Flat Iron

The flat-iron is a tool that can work wonders for your hair. It can straighten your hair and leave it feeling silky smooth. However, there are a couple of very important things that you will need to know when you are styling your hair with a flat iron. Below are some of the things that you need to know about hair styling with flat iron:

Types of Flat Irons

One of the keys to getting the most out of your flat-iron is to select the right one. Your hair length and texture are two of the things that you need to take into consideration when you are selecting a flat-iron. If you have any questions about selecting the right flat iron for your hair, then it will be best for you to speak with a professional stylist.

Prepare Your Hair

It is a-lot easier to style clean hair. That is why you should wash and condition your hair before you attempt to flat iron it. You also want to make sure that you blow-dry your hair unless you are using a wet to dry flat iron. You will need to comb through your hair to get all of the tangles out before you attempt to straighten it.

Set the Flat-Iron on The Correct Temperature

You do not want to set the temperature too high because too much heat can damage the hair. If your hair is very coarse and thick, then you should set the temperature between 350 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit. You should set the temperature below 300 degrees Fahrenheit if your hair is very thin and fine. You should set the temperature between 300 and 380 degrees Fahrenheit if you have normal hair.

Flat-Ironing Tips

It is best for you to flat-iron small sections of your hair at one time. You should part your hair in sections before you attempt to flat iron it. If you try to flat-iron too much hair at one time, then it will take a-lot longer to straighten. After you finish styling your hair, you should apply a finishing a spray.

The finishing spray will help your style last longer.

Taking Care of Your Flat Iron

Flat irons can be expensive, so you want to make sure that you take good care of yours. You should make sure that you clean your flat-iron at least once a week. You should store your flat-iron in a place where it cannot fall and break.
