What is the best straightener for thick and frizzy hair?
At Hairhouse Warehouse you can find a great range of straighteners made by a dozen of the most professional brands in the haircare industry. The secret to finding the best hair straightener is finding the right one for your hair type. If your hair type is thick and frizzy, there are a variety of designs and sizes to consider, with some straighteners better for controlling and smoothing thick and frizzy hair than others.
Silver Bullet have designed a straightener specifically for thick, unruly or coarse hair made with wide titanium plates. They call it the 230 Titanium Wide Straightener. The 38mm wide plates can hold high heats at consistent temperatures and distribute the heat evenly, making this straightener ideal for turning thick frizz into straighter, smoother hair.
Silver Bullet also make a fabulous straightener using ceramic/tourmaline technology. The Keratin 230 Ceramic Wide Straightener is ideal for the hard-to-handle hair type, which is often thick and prone to frizz. It has a variable temperature setting, 37mm plates, and provides stable styling using a keratin straightening system for ultimately smoother hair.
The GHD V Gold Max Styler also has advanced ceramic heat technology with 50mm wide plates designed to glide through thick, long, unruly hair leaving it luxuriously soft and silky smooth.
The Rolls Royce of wide hair straighteners would have to be Cloud Nine’s The Wide Iron. Ideal for the longest, thickest hair you can create a range of hair styles with this multi award-winning iron equipped with extra wide, floating, mineral-coated ceramic plates and five different temperature settings.
So which hair straightener is the best for thick and frizzy hair? Well that’s up to you and your hair type to determine, but if your hair is extremely thick and difficult to straighten, reviews suggest that long-lasting durable titanium plates have a slight edge over ceramic.
For smoother hair on the days following your hair straightening try a hair straightener brush such as GHD’s Glide Professional Hot Brush or Diva’s Luxe Hybrid Ceramic Straightening Brush. Hot brushes are quick and easy to use on any hair type, taming stray hairs, waves or kinks for sleek, straight hair on the days after straightening.
What is the best hair straightener for soft and weak hair?
Weak hair needs to be treated with care when you are using any kind of heated styling, especially when creating a range of hair styles using hair straighteners. It is essential to use a good quality thermal heat protectant spray not just on weak hair but on all hair types in order to prevent hair from becoming weak and damaged.
The regular use of leave-in or rinse out conditioning treatments, masques and oils can both strengthen and protect your hair. Hairhouse Warehouse have a huge selection of styling products to treat and protect weak and soft hair from heat damage.
A good quality hair straightener is important if you want to protect your hair from heat damage and have the flexibility to create straight hair or waves and curls. It will cause less damage to your hair than a cheap hair straightener, using safer heat technology and smoother plates for a salon-quality finish. The ability to heat up quickly and hold the heat at a safe, consistent temperature means you can avoid hot spots and style your hair with just one or two passes, as opposed to running the hot irons through your hair repeatedly.
Some hair straighteners offer more protection to the hair than others. The MUSTER Professional Styling Iron combines Salontec heating technology and oil infused ceramic plates for ultra-smooth, frizz-free straight hair. The variable temperature can be adjusted, enabling weak hair to be better cared for at a lower temperature setting.
Featuring infrared rays and ceramic plates, HALO’s ‘The Kate’ hair straightener uses Japanese Kyocera Technology and variable temperature control to minimise heat damage and create silky smooth, straight hair.
Tourmaline is a coating added to plates to improve styling. It emits negative ions that help to dry the hair quicker, which means less heat damage to your hair. The SILVER BULLET Attitude Straightener has 25mm friction-free ceramic and tourmaline plates and also has infrared variable heat settings.
Can I create other styles with a hair straightener?
Yes, you can create a range of hair styles using your hair straightener. Waves, curls, flicks and more can all be styled with a hair straightener. A heat protectant spray and styling cream will help to create definition while protecting and setting your curls or waves. Luckily Hairhouse Warehouse have a huge range to choose from.
The GHD Gold Styler features high-performing dual-zone technology and next generation heat sensors on each plate for straighter, smoother hair. The round barrel shape provides versatile styling and the easy creation of waves and curls.
Reviewers rate the GHD Gold Styler 4.6 out of 5 stars and say they love curling their hair with this straightener. The rotating cord and curved plate edges help the hair to glide through easily and they describe it as great for both straight hair and for curls or waves. The GHD Gold Styler is reportedly easy to use and will create a range of hair styles including smoother hair and curls that hold their shape.
