Bio Ionic Ismooth OnePass Flat Iron 1 1/2''

Bio Ionic is the leader in ion-powered hair care. Its professional-grade products contain Natural Ion Complex™ (a blend of natural-occurring minerals) that emits Natural Negative Ions into the hair.

The Bio Ionic Flat Iron Nano Ceramic Straightening Iron is one of the most effective straightening irons available on the market, as it straightens hair faster then most of its competitors, which in turn means hair remains shinier.

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.

 

How to Clean Your Hair Styling Tools

CC by sfllaw

Should you clean your hair styling tools? Most definitely! By hair tools, I’m referring to hair brushes/combs, hair dryers, flat irons and curling irons. There are so many advantages to keeping your hair styling tools clean.

For starters, build up of hair product or substances on your hot tools causes them to heat unevenly, which ultimately leads to hair damage. Dirty or greasy hair brushes lead to breakouts. You wash your hair to keep it from getting dirty, so it only makes sense to keep the styling tools that you put through your hair clean, as well. Hair styling tools collect dirt, oil and dead skin cells. Aside from transferring dirt and grease to your hair and scalp, passing that along can also clog pores and hair follicles. Here is the best way to clean…

Flat Irons and Curling Irons
Wipe with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball. For any hard-to-reach-places, you can use Q-tips. Use a clean towel to wipe dry.

Hair Dryers
Remove the air vent on the back of the hair dryer and clean out the lint with an old toothbrush. Then, rinse with hot water.

Hair Brushes and Combs
Pull out hairs from the hair brush/comb. Then, wash it with shampoo and rinse with conditioner. For combs, use hot water to rinse. Gently towel-dry a bit and then let it completely dry, standing teeth-down on a towel.

Flat Iron Your Hair Like a Pro

CC by Lauren Paulsen

Flat irons are the best way to get stick straight hair that shines and moves. However, if you don’t use a flat iron correctly, it can have very damaging effects on your hair. Flat irons can give off quite a bit of heat. If you saw the much-awaited season premier of Jersey Shore Season 4 in Italy last night, you saw Deena burn off a good chunk of her hair with a piping-hot hair iron. The following tips to flat iron your hair like a pro will help you avoid damaging it like Deena!

Prevention:
Wash your hair properly. A flat iron is less effective on dirty or oily hair. If you flat iron your hair on a daily basis, use a thermal protection shampoo and conditioner, such as those in the CHI Infra Home Stylist Kit, $40. Side note: try not to flat iron your hair every day.

Do not use any hair products after washing (aside for some thermal protection like CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray, $11 or a straightening balm like Straight Sexy Hair Power Straight Balm, $11.59).

Dry your hair completely with a professional hair dryer (roots to tips). Even slight moisture can cause damage to your hair AND flat iron.

After your hair is dry, now you may apply the straightening balm and heat protection spray mentioned above.

Comb out any tangles in your hair while you give your hair iron a few minutes to heat up.

Technique:
Of course, start by owning a professional flat iron.

Divide your hair into 4 sections.

Iron sections a maximum of 1 inch wide (beginning at the bottom and moving towards the top).

Do not let the hair iron sit on any one piece of hair for too long. Keep the iron constantly moving.

Comb through hair after each section is straightened.
