No more need to go to the hairdresser to pamper your hair and get a beautiful hairstyle! Specialist shops and brands now offer a wide range of hairdressing equipment and accessories specially designed for use at home. Among the most well-known and used are mini straighteners, curling irons and hair clippers.
The Mini Straightener: Ideal For Smooth Hair “At Home”.
The mini straightener is a small revolution in the world of hairdressing: it allows you to straighten your hair in 2 or 3 strokes, just like blow-drying, which takes much longer (and the thicker the hair is, the longer it takes!). Both practical and lightweight, the mini straightener is the ideal accessory for those who prefer to straighten their own hair. Simple to use, it promotes quick and easy hair straightening, provided of course that it is used correctly.
The mini straightener must be used on perfectly dry hair (preferably sprayed with a special blow-drying treatment or a heat-protective product). Then straighten the hair, starting with the strands at the bottom (nape of the neck and sides) and finishing with the hair at the top of the head. Otherwise, it is recommended to choose the temperature of the straightener according to the nature of the hair: a temperature above 170°C for thick, curly or rebellious hair and below 160°C for fine or slightly wavy hair.
The Curling Iron: To Make Yourself Pretty Curly Hair
As its name suggests, the curling iron is a styling tool that is used to curl hair, whether it is a few strands or the whole head. Just like the mini straightener, the curling iron is a lightweight and practical accessory that allows you to create beautiful curly locks yourself in no time at all!
Like the mini straightener, the curler can only be used on perfectly dry hair. For a beautiful result, it is recommended to work strand by strand, wrapping each strand in a spiral around the iron, which should be held with the tip down. Release the iron after a maximum of 5 seconds, then wait for the hair to cool before starting the operation again. Once the work is finished, it is advisable to apply a long-lasting hair spray to the entire freshly curled hair.
The Hair Clipper: To Cut Your Beard And Get A Good Haircut
The hair clipper is the essential accessory to get a haircut at home as well as to shave or trim your beard yourself. Both practical and safe, the hair clipper is safe to use, as long as it is used correctly. To begin with, it is imperative to use the clipper on perfectly clean and dry hair. Then, it must be used in such a way that it is always perpendicular to the scalp. It is advisable to mow your hair with regular gestures, starting from the back of the skull and continuing forwards without ever stopping the mower.
