Getting To The Root Of What Hot Tools Do For Your Hair

It is reported that in 1872 a hairdresser named Marcel Grateau used a pressing comb on his clientele in Paris France, who were trying to emulate the straight style of ancient Egyptian hair, but it's not really known exactly who invented this hot device. It was for women with coarse curly hair to achieve a fine straight look.

Now more then ever, your hairstyle is one of those parts of your appearance that you can easily change to create a different look whenever you feel like it. If you have naturally-curly hair, you can straighten it. If you have naturally-straight hair, you can curl it.

If you want to curl your hair, what do you reach for? The curling iron, of course! And what about if you want to straighten your hair? You'll probably reach for a flat iron or the blow dryer. Have you ever stopped to think that all of these tools use heat to get very different results? How does that work?

You probably don't necessarily think about science when you're curling or straightening your hair. A few basic scientific principles explain what's going on when the curling iron or blow dryer give you the fabulous hair you've been wanting.

Your hair is made up of, among other things, keratin proteins, natural oils, and hydrogen bonds. These ingredients work together to give your hair its natural shape, color, etc. People with different hair types and styles will have different amounts and arrangements of these items.

If you have straight hair, you can't just curl it around your finger to make it curly. The hair's composition, particularly its hydrogen bonds, will return it to its normal state quickly. Have you ever noticed that it's easier to bend many items if you apply heat to them? Your hair works in the same way.

When you use a blow dryer or a curling iron, the heat it produces breaks down your hair's hydrogen bonds, stripping away its natural oils and proteins. The heat changes your hair's texture, allowing you to mold it to create the look you want.

The shape of a curling or flat iron helps to mold your hair into the shape you desire. As you hold your hair in a particular shape for a few seconds, the bonds begin to reform into the new shape you want. The bonds will tend to hold your hair in its new shape until they're broken down again.

One of the ways they can be broken down other than heat is by water. That's why you shouldn't be surprised if your carefully-straightened hair turns curly again if it rains or the weather is particularly hot and humid.
