A close friend of mine has always had curly and frizzy ringlets so she’s the most annoyed when it comes to getting ready for pub nights with the girls. Who doesn’t want to dress up for girls’ night, right? Well, after trying a number of shampoos and conditioners and creams and oils, she finally gave up. Party nights became stressful for her and she never really enjoyed herself. Why? This was mostly because she kept thinking about her mane and how it looked. Sometimes, it got so oily with the treatments she underwent that it was indeed frustrating.
So, one day I decided to get her a hair straightener machine because I felt that that’s all that was left for her to try. It would give her exactly what she wanted; a sophisticated look and no combing in between ‘photo’ time. There would be no need for her to carry a hair brush in her bag because once she straightened her frizzy locks, it would remain like that until the next time she washed her hair. She could just finger comb it in case the wind messed it up. But mainly, what interested me about this gift was that at the party she could walk with her head held high confident that her hair looked sleek and non-messy, and naturally polished and we both would both be relieved and happy.
On researching the internet, I found that if used regularly, a hair straightener could damage your hair (read here). One of the main things to check for in a straightening machine would be its temperature settings, of course, right after selecting one apt for your hair type. If your hair is too thin, you may end up frying it instead of styling it. Also, perspiration and rain can take your straightened curls back to its original texture so you cannot really workout with your styled hair. But, however addictive, you will have to try and minimize its use because despite the heat protection spray, regular use of hair straighteners can tend to damage your hair. In short, for the occasional girls’ night, this was a good buy.
So, I selected one from here – Hair Straightening Machines and gave it to her. It was like both of us received a gift and were excited for her to get that polished look. Right after she finished washing her hair, we got down to using the new machine carefully. Overheating could burn her tresses so, as mentioned above, heat control was necessary. Once we were done, trust me, she was a different person all confident and happy. We combined her new look with smoky eyes, glittery lips and also highlighted her cheeks a little bit.
In case you are confused about buying the right hair straightener, you should have a look here. It will not only help you select the best machine, but it will also help you analyze why it will be the perfect one for you. My friend is elated with the gift I’ve given her and she thanks me every day for it. So, choose your machines properly just like I did and feel free to let us know which one you chose and how it is working out for your gorgeous braids. All the best with your glamorous look!
