Remington Hair StraightenersA guide to the different types of hair straighteners.

Hair straighteners are used by millions of men and women all over the country.

They can be great for styling and producing a glossy, sleek look to the hair. What many  people do not realise is that there are actually a lot of different types of hair straighteners out there, and some of them are better than others.

If you are thinking about buying some hair straighteners for yourself or somebody else then it is important that you understand all of the different types of straighteners and what they actually do.

This guide will help you decide which type is best for you.

Types of Hair Straighteners

Combination Hair Straighteners

Combination hair straighteners will usually contain two or more different materials. There are varying benefits to this type of hair straighteners, often unique to the different straightener.

Combination hair straighteners often produce a really good result, frequently better than many other types of straightener.

These types make hair styling incredibly easy, however, they can be very expensive which can be an issue for some.

Ceramic Hair Straighteners

Ceramic hair straighteners are definitely the most popular and widely used.

The good thing about ceramic hair straighteners is that they are very affordable.

Ceramic hair straighteners distribute heat easily, which means that they are able to straighten the hair very well.

However, they occasionally make the hair frizzy, which is not good.

If you are looking for something that is affordable and does the job then ceramic hair straighteners should definitely be considered.

Titanium Hair Straighteners

Titanium hair straighteners are probably the most affordable out of the ones that are able to give professional results.

One good thing about these types of hair straighteners is the fact that they are very durable, especially in comparison with some of the others.

They are also scratch resistant which makes them even better.

Titanium hair straighteners are lighter than most which makes them easier to use.

They are definitely one of the best types of hair straighteners on the market.

Tourmaline Hair Straighteners

Tourmaline hair straighteners are usually found in salons.

The results that can be reduced by tourmaline hair straighteners are far more high quality than the other types of hair straighteners mentioned above, and the results that they produce are highly professional.

The only bad thing about tourmaline hair straighteners is that they are very expensive and it is unlikely that you will be able to find an affordable pair.

However, saving up the money to be able to afford a pair of tourmaline straighteners is definitely worth it.
