The types of professional hair straighteners

Straight hair is a sleek and smooth hairstyle that is almost always in fashion. For those who aren't born with naturally pin straight hair, this look can be achieved with the help of a hair iron. This article details out the types of professional hair straighteners.

Types of straighteners

Wet to Dry
This type of straightening iron uses steam from the wet hair to help to straighten it. This hair iron works best on those whose hair is already fairly straight. It won't work so well on those with frizzy or course hair and could possibly make the hair frizzier in those cases. Chrome and gold plating
Choosing a chrome or gold plated straightener is a popular choice because these irons aren't quite as expensive as the ceramic ones. However, they aren't likely to give you good results either, but they do quite well on hair that is not fine or dry. Those with chemically treated hair should avoid using the chrome plated iron because it could cause even more damage. Ceramic
Ceramic straighteners work well on any hair type, that is why they are often purchased more than any other straightener. They may be more expensive than others, but it's worth it to pay more for better results. Ceramic irons provide a smooth and sleek look to the hair and may even help to tame frizz.
