Hair Styling In The 21st Century
Why is it that individuals who have curly or wavy hair want it straight, and then there are those of us who have straight hair and we want to have our hair curly or wavy? It just goes without being said, but I’m saying it anyway, it is just human nature to want what we don’t already have. Well, when it comes to hair, we are all in luck as there are hair styling tools to accommodate just about any style that we desire.
All one has to do is to go online or go to a local beauty supply store or hair salon and you will find just about any kind of tool necessary to straighten, curl, flip, wave, crimp, and the list goes on and on. We all definitely take for granted what modern technology has done for us. Just in the last 10 to 20 years, there has been a marked increase in the variety of styling tools available to buy. For many of us who have been around a lot longer, we can reminisce about the days when we had to have our hair chemically processed to straighten our hair, or even try to iron long hair on the ironing board. If we wanted our hair to be curly, we sat under a dryer with curlers in our hair and waited for our hair to dry and curl. Thanks to the inventors of hot rollers we just plug them in, put them in our hair and within minutes we unroll, brush through, and we’re done. And, best of all, no more sleeping on rollers! Oh, how wonderful it is to live in the 21st Century!!
Why Should You Buy An Ionic Hair Dryer?
So you have washed your hair and now you have to blow dry it. You’ve noticed that your hair is looking more dull and frizzy and your ends are dry and splitting. Is it the shampoo, the conditioner, the other products that you use on your hair, OR, is it the hair dryer that is actually drying out your hair? You go to your hairdresser and you ask what can be done. The question that arises is, “What kind of hair dryer are you using?” You suddenly are too embarrassed to say and reply that it is just a cheap model you picked up at the local drug store. Your hairdresser responds that it is time for you to start looking at ionic hair dryers and seriously consider buying one. But, why should you buy an ionic hair dryer? What does an ionic hair dryer have that your everyday run of the mill hair dryers don’t have?
Ionic hair dryers release negative ions into the airstream coming from the dryer. The negative ions break down the water molecules in your hair into smaller particles. This is possible due to the positive charge of the water particles attracting the negative ions to it and resulting in the water particles breaking down and evaporating. This process cuts down the time you spend drying your hair in half. Since you don’t have to spend as much time drying your hair, your hair will be less likely to get overheated and break, resulting in less split ends.
Since negative ions improve the condition of your hair by breaking down the water molecules for better absorprtion, it is this absorption process that results in shinier and smoother hair. Hydrated hair from within gives the hair a healthy glow and more volume. The tightening or closing of the cuticle from this ionic process will curb the static electricity that causes unwanted frizz.
So, with all of the stated benefits of an ionic hair dryer, if you don’t already own one, now is the time to buy one. You will see that there are many ionic hair dryers in the marketplace to choose from. They are available in all price ranges, shapes, and sizes. With so many choices, you should have no trouble finding one that is just right for you.
