The best hairstyling tools for the home and why

There is so much you can achieve in terms of DIY hairstyling if you own the right tools. Having the best hairstyling tools and knowing how to make the most of them is now even easier with the number of tutorials available online.

This brief article discusses the tools you must have and the reasons why you need them to pull off most of the trending hairstyles from your home.

Adjustable heat hair dryer
A hair dryer is a must-have when it comes to hairstyling. Choosing a variable heat one (aren’t they all?) will open up the styles you can accomplish. Why is this tool necessary? Firstly, it allows you to get your hair from a soaking state to one where you can use styling products in a very short space of time.

A word of caution though, this may be one of the best hairstyling tools, but using your hairdryer on the highest setting may cause heat damage to your hair.

Straight to wavy in under 10 minutes?
A curling iron (do they still call them that?) allows you to create wavy curls in your hair if you have naturally straight hair. Whether you are looking for a whole head of curly hair or just a curly strand as part of your look, all is possible when you use a curler.

Heat makes your hair malleable and the other parts of the tool creates the curls or ringlets. The best hairstyling tools come with a range of setting to expand the variety of styles you can pull off.

The secret to long, straight silky locks
Second to the hair dryer, a hair straightening iron is a must-have in any woman’s hairstyling toolkit. A heat protection spray is essential to shield your hair from the heat, preventing it from breaking.

Whether you have coarse or curly hair, the heat, commonly delivered via ceramic or even gold plated plates will lock in the frizz and result in straight silky hair.

Now that you know what the best hairstyling tools are, you need to learn how to use them safely and how to protect your hair from damage. Next time you visit your hairdresser for a trim ask lots of questions and pick their brains about what you can achieve with these tools.
