Hair Straightener Guide - ValueLink Shop

There are two types of hair straightening tools. First is the brush. Secondly is the flat iron. Here we are going to discuss the main difference of the two that way it will help you which one will work perfectly for your hair.

A hair straightener is a grooming tool designed to remove curls or kinks from your hair. There are several types of hair straightening tools and methods available. Whether your hair is curly or straight, it is the hydrogen bonds in your hair which act as the “glue” to help keep its shape. Heat is able to weaken these hydrogen bonds which then enables the hair to be temporarily restyled.

Hair Brush StraightenersHair Straightener Guide - Valuelink Shop

If you have thin hair or hair that is easily damaged, a hairbrush straightener would be your first choice, as they generally use a lower level of heat than a flat iron. In addition to flattening hair, hairbrush straighteners can be used to add shine to dull hair.

Pros:
1.Suitability for thin or easily damaged hair due to low heat levels
2.Faster hair styling, ease of hairstyling and protecting the quality of hair.
3. More manageable process, as the hair is being brushed and flattened at the same time
5.Adding shine to dull hair
6.Quick to reach the ideal temperature
7.More frequent use than flat iron devices as they are safer on the hair and scalp

Cons:
1.not pin-straight hairstyle like what is achieved from a flat iron, no possibility to curl the strands like a flat iron can.
2. Time is taken to straighten and style hair is greater than flat irons

Always remember that daily use of a straightener can damage your hair, particularly if—like many straightener addicts—your hair is already coarse and dry. The heat dries out your hair, making it more vulnerable to split ends and breakage. The more heat you use, and the more frequently you use it, the worse the damage will be.
