A Hair Straightening Machine is also called a Hair Straightener or a Flat Iron. So, to identify the best Hair Straightening Machine in India, I went through all the available Hair Straighteners and compared various qualities such as plate type, presence of tourmalline or ionic conditioning and various other factors.
The main concern when picking a hair straightening machine is hair safety. So, it is always good to pick hair straighteners with ceramic plates instead of metal or other plates. Ceramic heats up evenly and glides smoothly over your hair. Ceramic produces infrared heat which penetrates hair without damaging the surface.
Negative Ions (Good for you hair ) :
Negative Ions break up water molecules and this helps the water evaporate faster which in turn helps you in using reduced heat. This lower heat keeps your hair safe and smooth. Hair Straighters with Ion conditioning produce negative ions. Also, tourmalline, when heated produces negative ions. So, it is always good to pick a hair straightener with tourmalline or with ion conditioning.
With these in mind, the best hair straighters in India or the best hair straightening machine in India are Remington Ceramic Straight 230 S3500 and the Philips HP 8309.
