How to choose a rectifier
A straightener is an indispensable item in the arsenal of many girls. It is used not only by owners of curly hair, but also by girls with straight hair to make curls more shiny and straight. Now the choice of rectifiers in the store is very wide, more and more new models appear every day. We will choose a straightener that will not harm your hair. Follow our step by step instructions.
Pay attention to the coating of the plates, because the possible impact on the structure of your hair depends on them. A straightener with simple metal plates is much cheaper, but using such a straightener will instantly split the ends of your hair. Make sure that the plates are with some kind of coating, such as ceramic. If you plan to add cosmetics to your hair, then choose a straightener with a mixed coating, such as ceramics with Teflon or ceramics with tourmaline. Such a straightener will give your hair shine, and when used, it will provide easy glide.
Check if the straightener you are about to buy has an ionization function. It is very beneficial for the health of your hair. The ions with which the plates are coated will not allow the hair to dry out and become electrified.
Decide on the width of the plate. Wide (more than 2.5 cm) are suitable for thick and long hair. Narrow ones (2–2.5 cm) are universal, they are suitable for all types of hair. In addition, with the help of narrow plates, you can easily not only straighten your hair, but also curl it.
Find out about the temperature conditions of the device. It is very important that the heating temperature can be chosen independently. For thin and weakened hair, a low temperature is suitable, and for highly curly hair, the temperature should be more than 200 degrees, but not all straighteners have this mode.
Pay attention to the heating rate of the rectifier. Most straighteners heat up very quickly, in just 10–15 minutes.
Check the device for safety. Some straighteners have special cold zones on the edges that will help to avoid burns.
Pay attention to whether you can use the straightener of this model for styling wet hair. This will reduce the heat on your hair so you don’t have to blow-dry and then straighten it.
Do not forget to inquire about the storage of the device. Usually rectifiers provide for fixing the plates. Proper storage contributes to the longevity of the instrument.
