Straight hair is a desired look for many women, thanks, in part, to many of the celebrities who grace the red carpets and magazine covers. But it is not a look that many are naturally blessed with and flatirons have become a grooming essential for many women in recent years.
The salon-quality Bio Ionic One-Pass Flatiron come in two widths: 1/2″ for shorter or smaller pieces of hair, such as bangs, or 1.5″ for longer, wider areas of hair. The One-Pass Flatiron stands out in its market as the fastest ceramic hair flat iron. Using Silicone Speed Strips on the plates, the Bio Ionic Ismooth OnePass Flat Iron only requires one single pass of your hair through the ceramic hair flat iron to leave hair perfectly straight.
Here in TheBeautyPlace.com offices we are often asked the difference between two similar products. Case in point? CHI Silk Infusion and BioSilk Silk Therapy. So, we set about clearing up the confusion with a look at two of your favorite haircareproducts.
CHI Silk Infusion
CHI SILK INFUSIONhelps strengthen and soften your hair, for improved manageability and shine without any build-up. The alcohol free formula is enriched with pure silk alongside wheat and soy proteins. Simply apply a small amount into palm of hand and work evenly throughout your towel-dried hair before styling.
BioSilk Silk Therapy
Meanwhile,BIOSILK SILK THERAPYis a lightweight, replenishing treatment that protects hair and skin to leave them looking healthy and shiny. The silk proteins strengthen hair from the inside out, while vitamin B holds in moisture, and vitamin E nourishes for shine and softness. In addition to repairing, BioSilk Silk Therapy also protects your hair from future sun damage and from heated styling tools. Use it every day, like a sunscreen with moisturizer. And, you can use it on your body too. There’s a reason why this product won a Total Beauty 2011 award.
Here at TheBeautyPlace.com, we know more than most that there is always a latest beauty buzz on the block. Currently, we are all excited about Macadamia Natural Oil. The professional hair care line contains two of the most beneficial oils: Macadamia and Argan.
Together, macadamia oil and argan oil replenish the hair’s natural emollients with the high content of essential fatty acids found naturally in both of these exceptional oils. The combined benefits help to nourish and protect the hair from harmful UV rays while repairing hair follicles for improved elasticity and shine.
Macadamia nut oil is extremely similar to the body’s natural oils and is therefore easily and quickly absorbed by the hair and skin. Use the complete regimen of Macadamia Natural Oil haircare products for best results to revitalize your hair. Macadamia Natural Oil products include a full line of haircare products as well as an extensive selection ofstyling products, all of which are excellent for dry, damaged hair.
CHI Turbo Digital Ceramic Spring Curling Iron 1-1/2"
This new year’s eve, we suggest you embrace one of the hottest hair trends of the season and turn your back on perfectly straight hair in favor of a curled style. And even if you don’t have naturally curled tresses, you can achieve the look with the help of a CHI curling iron.
The CHI haircare brand is well known for its heated styling tools, which are some of the best on the market. They are easy to use with an ergonomically designed handle and versatile heat settings to provide you with total control and comfort.
The state-of-the-art ceramic heat seals the hair cuticle to repel the effects of humidity and create a shiny finish. What’s more, the CHI curling irons heat up evenly to ensure a stellar end look.
CHI produces three sizes of curling iron to produce an array of different curled looks. The CHI curling irons come in 3/4″ for tighter curls; 1″ for medium curls, and 1 1/2″ for looser curls or waves. All of the CHI curling irons use 44 Ceramic Technology with Far Infrared allows these hair curling irons to offer flash quick heating while locking in moisture and protecting your hair.
Do you experience terrible acne breakouts? Or red, irritated skin? How about large, clogged pores? Or terribly oily skin? We’ve recently discovered one of the best solutions on the market and we are currently stocking it at TheBeautyPlace.com at fabulous prices. Our discovery? Murad’s acne products.
Beauty editors around the world LOVE Murad’s skincare products and they have given many Murad products covetable industry awards. Indeed, top-ranking magazines like Allure, InStyle, Shape, Fitness and more, have been raving about Murad for years. (As have we.)
One such leading product is the Murad Acne Spot Treatment. This fabulous product speeds the healing of stubborn blemishes on-the-spot, while preventing new blemishes from fully developing. In short, it’s a wonder product and a staple in our bathroom cabinet.
One of our favorite lines right now is the Agadir collection of Argan Oil products. Agadir hair products are made with Argan oil, a centuries-old oil that is native to Morocco. Though these days many people are talking about Moroccanoil, Agadir has in fact been creating hair products since the mid 1960s.
Agadir haircare products use 100% pure and certified Argan oil to create products that are lightweight, non-greasy, and instantly absorbed into the hair to detangle, moisturize and leave hair brilliantly shiny.
Agadir’s alcohol-free formulas give hair a wonderful silky, soft feel. The products–which include shampoo, conditioner, masques and more–also help to tame split ends. TheBeautyPlace.com currently carries 14 products in the Agadir line, which includes haircare and styling products. The most popular is the Agadir Argan Oil Treatment, which is so easy to use. After shampooing, simply apply a few drops to the palms of your hands. Rub together and then comb fingers through damp hair. Comb through and style as usual.

So, we were slightly amused to hear that some of the world’s leading hairstylists (such as Orlando Pita and Guido) have taken on the mission of inviting women to embrace the fuzz by making it bigger and better than ever.
“Say what?!” We hear your cry? We KNOW! We reply. We couldn’t believe it either. But, having reviewed the runways we can tell you: it’s true.
And here, our essential five products for embracing–and rocking–the frizz.
