Tourmaline, Titanium, Ionic what does it mean?!

flat iron

Flat iron, hair dryer, and curling iron technology terms have gone through the roof!  “This dryer has ionpialia technology” or “Get the latest in timonia torque” is what it all sounds to me.  Gibberish!  So I did a quick investigation of these hair appliance terms to help expose the true meaning!  Guess what I found – this stuff really means something and can do wonders for your hair.

What is Tourmaline and why is it important in a styling product?
Tourmaline is a precious gemstone.  When heated, it naturally releases negative ions and far-infrared heat, both of which benefit hair by reducing static and frizz to increase shine. Far-infrared heat is gentle and eliminates potential heat damage to hair.  This is definitely good!

What is Titanium and why is it important in a styling product?
Titanium is a unique metal, as strong as steel but 40% lighter!  It’s the smoothest surface available in a styling tool, retains higher heat longer and distributes temperatures consistently across surfaces.  The end result is less styling time and healthier hair.  I have been using a titianium plate flat iron and think it is definitely better than its ceramic counterpart.  Quicker styling time, higher heat, and a very smooth surface.

What is Ionic and why is it important in a styling product?
Ions close the hair cuticle and reduce the static electricity that dulls hair and causes fly-away frizzies.  During dry winter months this is key!  Ions also break water molecules into tiny, micronized clusters for deeper moisture penetration into hair, and hold the moisture longer for silkier and shinier hair.

Nicole Kidman Hair Raising?

Are poofs in the hair really back in?  Nicole Kidman, a StyleBell diva, was sporting an interesting hairstyle at a party a few nights ago in NYC.  I am not so sure about it honestly.  “I Dream of Jeannie” anyone?  If anyone wants to replicate this hair style you can use the Bumpits to add that lift to your hair without a teasing mess.

Brad Pitt Facial Hair Saga

Brad Pitt was spotted last week at the Clinton Global Initiatives annual summit with a full on beard.  What do you all think?  Honestly I like him anyway 🙂

Nicole Richie’s New Do

Nicole Richie was spotted in Hollywood with her new ‘very simple’ do.  She trimmed her hair 6 inches but kept her blonde color.  To me it doesn’t look that different but I guess 6 inches is 6 inches.

Oprah’s Hair is All Hers

Oprah Natural

On Oprah’s show yesterday they talked all about hair – black hair, white hair, and everything in between.  Chris Rock was a guest on the show launching his new documentary Good Hair.  Oprah revealed to Chris Rock that her hair real not a weave.  The picture above proves it!  You go Oprah.  I know there are millions of jealous women out there.  Check out our slideshow of Oprah’s Hair timeline.

Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” Documentary

Chris Rock continues to surprise me.  Chris Rock launches a comedic documentary, Good Hair , nationally on October 23rd.  What is it all about?  Whether you have Black hair, White hair, or somewhere in between this movie is all about your hair!  Out of all people why did Chris Rock create this documentary?

When Chris Rock’s daughter, Lola, came up to him crying and asked, Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair? The bewildered comic committed himself to search the ends of the earth and the depths of black culture to find out who had put that question into his little girl’s head! Director Jeff Stilsons camera followed the funnyman, and the result is Good Hair, a wonderfully insightful and entertaining, yet remarkably serious, documentary about African American hair culture.An exposé of comic proportions that only Chris Rock could pull off, Good Hair visits hair salons and styling battles, scientific laboratories, and Indian temples to explore the way black hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of black people. Celebrities such as Ice-T, Kerry Washington, Nia Long, Paul Mooney, Raven Symoné, Maya Angelou, and Reverend Al Sharpton all candidly offer their stories and observations to Rock while he struggles with the task of figuring out how to respond to his daughter’s question. What he discovers is that black hair is a big business that doesnt always benefit the black community and little Lolas question might well be bigger than his ability to convince her that the stuff on top of her head is nowhere near as important as what is inside.

Chris Rock came on the Oprah show yesterday and had an honest discussion on women’s hair.  More posts to come from that show!  Good Hair comes to a theater near you in October.
