What Materials Can Do To Your Hair
There are so many different types of hair it’s hard to know what kind of dryer to buy. Even more confusing, there are dryers will all sorts of different bells and whistles, and they all do something totally separate from each other.
How do you know what the best option is for your strands so you don’t end up under-doing or overdoing your hair? There are a couple of things to keep in mind when you’re getting down to brass tacks.
Ceramic – Fancy For Most Hair Types
The ceramic in your dryer helps trap moisture in so it stays smooth, and that’s a big deal when you’re drying your hair a lot. That being said, the best part about ceramic is the flexibility it offers, and there are plenty of blowers on the market that make the most of ceramic coils. Ceramic is great for all hair types, and it can be used with tourmaline, pearl, silk and more which helps to get your locks under control.
Tourmaline – Thick and Curly
If you’re anything like me you’re a fan of bling, so when I found out that tourmaline is a gem stone that’s been crushed I was pretty happy. That being said, it also does wonders for my long and very thick hair. Tourmaline is great for trapping moisture because it usually works with ceramic, but it is also smooth’s and adds a ton of shine. The particles zap frizz so you can say goodbye to that “little” problem whilst at the same time, making your strands organized and manageable. I thank the thick, curly hair gods!
Ionic – With On/Off For All Hair Types
Ions make a big difference to your hair which is weird to me considering the fact you can’t see them. They’re there to trap in moisture, and your hair is dried from the inside out rather than the other way round. It basically dries through your hair.
If you have fine hair, you need to make sure you get an ionic dryer with the option to switch off the flow because you don’t want it in your hair all the time. It will make it fall flat and seam lifeless. Ions are great for thick hair that needs some help with balancing out the body without adding frizz.
Titanium – For Frizz Finders
If your hair has a tendency to get bigger than it is, no matter what the texture, titanium is the way to go IF it’s a big problem. Titanium allows you to use higher heat levels without totally frying your hair, but you’re still putting a lot of heat on your strands.
Make sure this is what you want before you dive into it because you will be putting slightly more pressure on your mane. That being said, it does control frizz like a champ and it can put you back in control of wild hair that never seems to do what you want it to.
Material Does Matter
If you’re trying to get your hair under control, you have to make sure you’re using the right materials on it. If you have thin hair you can get away with low setting on most dryers, but you want to make sure they’re not contributing to your style falling flat. Pay attention to the material, and you can get the perfect hair style with a minimal amount of effort.
