Hair straightening has been a favorable technology for people who do not want to continue having their curly hairs. With a variety of hair straightening tools to choose from, one may not be aware of the good and bad effects of their hair straighteners.
Hair straightening irons work by breaking down the hydrogen bonds that cause hair to curl. They make this possible through a well- controlled amount of heat. These bonds can be brought back by moisture, thus, the work of your hair straightening irons were just temporary. However without our knowledge, these hair straighteners can cause a significant amount of damage to your hair. Heat damage is the unavoidable effect since these straightening irons cannot possibly work without heat. The other one is the mechanical damage. It is a preventable type of damage that we could lessen through the proper choice of hair straighteners. Mechanical damage to hair can be decreased through straightening irons with smoother ends, such as those made up with ceramics.
Ceramic hair straighteners can give you a sleek, straight hair in a beneficial manner you’ve been wishing for. Ceramic plating can heat your hair faster and with lesser damage compared to other types. They can straighten your uneven hair strands by letting them pass through their smooth surfaces. Their unique texture can lessen the strain that hair straitening equipment may cause. It is also important to understand how they work through our hair. Non- ceramic type of plates such as the aluminum and metal types needs to heat the outer part of the hair first before they could enter the hair’s cuticle and break the hydrogen bonds. This longer exposure to heat can significantly damage your hair strands. On the brighter side, ceramic plates can directly pass through and easily reach the inside of the hair. This is made possible through the utilization of infrared heat.
