What is the function of hair straighteners? Hair straightener principle:

As the name suggests, hair straighteners are used to straighten hair and are a must-have hairstyling tool when styling hair. But do you know how hair straighteners work?

The principle of hair straighteners is to heat the hair at high temperature through the heating plate (heating element) in the hair straightener. When the user clips the hair, the heating element will transfer the heat energy to the hair, using the heat to temporarily change the hydrogen bonds between the hair strands. , part of the hair protein structure), allowing it to generate memory, fix the hair style, and achieve the effect of straight hair!

How to Choose a Good Hair Straightener? 5 Key Purchase Considerations

In the humid weather in Hong Kong, even if you use hair straighteners to style your hair, it will return to its original shape before going out? The following is a list of 5 key points for purchasing hair straighteners. Choose a hair straightener with good performance to maintain the best hair condition!
 

1. Heating element

As mentioned earlier, hair straighteners mainly use heating plates to change the hair style. The heating elements of hair straighteners on the market can be divided into three categories:

  • Cermet
    It is a newer heating component that heats up quickly, is environmentally friendly, highly energy-saving, and does not contain lead, cadmium, mercury and other harmful substances, making it safer to use. However, hair straightener models using this heating element are more expensive. high.

  • Thermistor
    Model of the thermistor heating element will increase as the temperature rises, and the calorific value is easy to adjust. In addition, its service life is longer than other types and its safety performance is good. However, the heating rate of the thermistor heating element is relatively slow and it is difficult to maintain a high temperature continuously.

  • Heating wire heating element
    Heating wire heating element is alloy heating. Generally speaking, alloy is not easy to deform at high temperatures, so it is often used in hair straighteners.
 

2. Electrical plywood design

In addition to the heating body, when purchasing hair straighteners , you cannot ignore the design of the electric splint, which is the heating surface that directly contacts the hair. Mainly divided into the following three types:

  • Ceramic plate: smooth surface, smoother to use. The smoother the electric splint is, the less damage it will do to the hair. Materials such as nanoceramics, high-precision ceramics and fine ceramics are superior to traditional ceramic plates.
  • Crystallized glass plate: a mixture of microcrystals and glass, with properties of glass and ceramics. Brighter than ceramics, stronger than glass, wear-resistant and easy to clean.
  • Ceramic glazed aluminum plate: The glaze refers to a thin glassy layer covering the ceramic surface. Its properties are similar to glass, making the plywood impermeable, smooth, shiny and easy to clean.

3. Ease of grip

When choosing a hair straightener , it’s best to buy a lightweight, easy-to-grip model. It takes at least 5 minutes to style your hair with a hair straightener, so it is not advisable to buy a hair straightener that is too heavy.

In addition, general hair straightener models are made of plastic material to protect users from heat or electricity.

4. Charging method

General speaking, the inflation methods of hair straighteners are divided into two types: wired and rechargeable battery (wireless). Wireless hair straighteners are easy to carry and use, but the use time after each charge is short, only about 30 minutes to an hour. In addition, if you want to take wireless hair straighteners with you when traveling, you need to pay attention to local entry and exit restrictions. For example, Japan stipulates that some types of hair straighteners cannot be brought on board airplanes. If the lithium battery cannot be removed, it cannot be carried in either carry-on baggage or checked baggage.

Therefore, it is best for everyone to consider the main use before purchasing and choose the appropriate model of wired and wireless hair straighteners.

5. Other operating functions

Whether the straightener has other functions is also one of the important considerations, such as temperature adjustment, automatic power off, etc. Hair straighteners with temperature adjustment function can allow users to adjust according to the thickness of the hair and are easy to shape; they can automatically turn off. The power function reduces the risk of accidents caused by forgetting to turn off the power.

In addition, many hair straighteners can create straight and curly hair styles, which can save the budget of buying hair curler.

Do Hair Straighteners Damage Hair? Consumer Council Tips:

Overseas research suggests that using hair straighteners can potentially damage hair, causing localized hair breakage, increased frizziness, and split ends. While people use hair straighteners to achieve a neat hairstyle, the Consumer Council provides the following tips to protect your hair when using a hair straightener:

1. Avoid Using on Damp Hair

Some people intentionally blow-dry their hair until it's semi-dry, or deliberately dampen their hair before using a straightener, thinking that the moisture will help set the style. However, the Consumer Council points out that this is a misconception! Because hair straighteners use heat to temporarily alter the hydrogen bonds in hair, when the hair comes into contact with water, it will revert to its original form. Additionally, when hair is wet, the hair cuticles open up, and when the hot straightener directly contacts the open cuticles, it can increase the risk of hair breakage - a lose-lose situation.

2. Be particular about time and temperature.

Female who have used hair straighteners know that it takes a certain amount of time to straighten their hair. However, the Consumer Council points out that using hair straighteners above 175°C for 5 minutes can cause damage to your hair, so you should pay attention to the usage time and temperature.

Clamp hair temperature point calibration? As far as Asians are concerned, hair straighteners with a temperature range of 150°C to 180°C can already be used for shaping. You can adjust your hair quality. The thicker the hair, the higher the degree of heat! In addition, damaged hair that is frequently permed and dyed should not use too high a temperature!
 

3. Protect hair when clipping

If you use hair straighteners frequently , even the lowest heat will cause a certain degree of damage, so you need to protect your hair before straightening your hair! For example, apply hair care products such as hair oil, anti-heat spray and other hair care products before clipping the hair to form a protective film on the hair to prevent the splint from directly contacting the hair and cuticles!

4. Be careful of burns

Overseas studies have pointed out that skin contact with a ceramic surface of 86°C for one second can burn the skin, let alone a hair straightener with a temperature exceeding 100 degrees Celsius!

When using hair straighteners, remember to pay attention to the holding angle to avoid burning the skin or scalp, especially the forehead, behind the ears, neck and places that are most likely to be touched by fingers!

Consumer Council hair straightener report

In 2013, the Consumer Council tested the safety and performance of 12 hair straighteners and curlers on the market , including 7 hair straighteners, 3 hair curling irons and 2 all-in-one stylers, including 4 hair straightener samples. It even claims to be able to create curly hair effects.

The Consumer Council pointed out that many products did not perform satisfactorily in areas such as protection against electric shock and insulation, temperature rise, or wiring installation. Five of them failed the protection against electric shock and insulation tests, and the temperature rise of another three samples was slightly higher. .

In addition, when purchasing hair straighteners , you can also consider factors such as preheating time, maximum temperature, and ease of use.

After reading the opinions of the Consumer Council, everyone should have a certain understanding of how to choose hair straighteners. YOHO has also prepared 6 popular hair straightener recommendations for you!
