The days of hair products that are partially natural are over. Today’s beauty market is flooded with hair appliances that offer the most effective results — such as a flat iron or curling iron. If you’re going natural but want the convenience of blow-drying your hair and straightening it to add volume or shape it into a sleek style without touching product straight onto your head, it’s time to choose an appliance for you.

We’ve put this together as a guide so you understand the different types of hair appliances on the market. Let’s begin with something we often take for granted: hair dryers have a variety of uses. They can be used to, in combination with a curling iron or flat iron, give you volume and texture without making your hair look messy or frizzy. If you want to style your hair without using a blow dryer and an iron, try holding the curling iron or flat iron about an inch away from your head while drying for more volume and less stickiness.

Tip: Always use heat protectant before using hot tools.

So, what are the different types of hair appliances? We’ll start with straighteners. It’s important to understand that there are two main different kinds: ceramic and ionic. Ceramic products tend to be a bit more durable and are also more energy efficient, which is why they come with a higher price tag than ionic ones. Ceramic flat irons, for example, use tourmaline technology from minerals that give users smooth results without any burn or damage. Ionic hair irons can be negatively charged while you use them so that your hair cuticles will not close as fast as they normally would — thus keeping moisture in your locks longer.

When curling your hair, try using a flat iron to heat up the curling iron first, then use the hot iron to clamp the curls. This will help them hold longer. These days, you can purchase specialty flat irons designed to curl hair into tight ringlets which are great for those who have very fine or thin hair that doesn’t stay curled on its own.

DevaCurl has introduced a tool called the DevaFuser that includes a flat iron, a diffuser and an air-drying technique in one device. It promises to create “effortless stretched-out curls that last three times longer” than if you used any single one of these three appliances.

So, what are the beauty benefits of straightening and curling your hair? To start with, it keeps your hair from becoming dry. Salon blow-outs can be incredibly damaging to your locks because they can dry out the cuticles of hair strands, making them more susceptible to breakage. Because of that, it is important to take good care of them so that they stay strong and healthy. It’s also essential that you change the color at least every six washes as this can also damage the cuticles of your hair. This also helps to prevent crimping or damage that can occur.

As many women have found out, the clamping technique used in curling your hair can cause the “memory” of a style. This is because when you take your hair down, it will look like the same style you define for the entire week. Because of this, it is important to carefully monitor how much heat you’re using while curling your hair so as to not cause excessive damage or discomfort. In order to maintain healthy hair, make sure you are not burning strands of hair while trying to curl them — especially if you have fine or fragile locks.


As the number of people going natural increases every year (and the amount of women who don’t color their hair rather than do) it is important to understand the different kinds of appliances that are available for styling and maintenance. Remember, the more you take care of your hair, the healthier it will be — and won’t fall out on its own like some may have experienced. Having said that, one thing you should always consider it how to use these tools safely so as not to damage your precious locks. Understanding how to properly use heat-based tools will result in beauty benefits in both the short-term and long-term. Good luck!
