How to choose the right straightener for your hair type

by 19K views 19K views  
Flat irons or straighteners are the key to getting glossy, smooth hair. Hair straighteners are multi-purpose; they not only straighten your hair but also can be used to curl your hair. There’s no dearth of straighteners in all sizes, materials and shapes, so it’s confusing knowing which one to buy. It’s important to choose wisely to prevent damaging your precious strands. Scroll down to find out the perfect straightener for your hair type.
Hair type - Fine Hair
Thin and fine hair is damaged easily. Avoid straighteners that have just one heat setting. Pick a straightener with multiple heat settings; this will allow you to control the heat. Also, you don’t need much heat, because it’s relatively easy to straighten fine hair.
Choosing the plate for fine hair
Ceramic hair straighteners are great for smoothening out hair and reducing frizz. Ceramic plates evenly distribute heat, hold heat for long and control heat. The plates are either ceramic coated, ceramic plate or tourmaline plate or coated.  Ceramic plates are best for fine or thin hair.

Hair type – Thick Hair
Choose a straightener that has higher heat settings. This will allow you to straighten your hair in one or two strokes. If you have a low-temperature setting you will have to go over and over the same section of hair repeatedly, increasing the chances of damaging cuticles.
Choosing the plate for thick hair
Titanium heats up quickly and keeps the heat consistent. Because these plate heat up quickly and maintain a high temperature, straightening thick hair becomes easier. You don’t have to go over and over the same section of hair, thus minimizing damage.
