Cloud Nine Hair Curling Tongs & Straighteners

Shining Locks by Cloud Nine Straighteners

Cloud Nine straighteners have become a respected tool for the hair care industry, offering a wide range of designs to suit several hair types and preferences. Youll find wide irons, wands, micro-straighteners, and luxury sets in their range, all with smooth heating plates for generating impressive results. Their temperature controls offer plenty of styling freedom.

Which straightener features work best for difficult hair?

Cloud 9 wide straighteners come with tools such as protective heat guards, hibernation modes, and mineral-coated plates. The Cloud Nine straightener range includes these features:

  • Inbuilt speed settings for fast straightening.
  • Smooth coated plates for polishing without dragging. These are best for frizzy hair.
  • 360-degree swivel cords for ease of use.
  • Micro-controlled heat systems that achieve an even temperature across the plate.
  • A heat guard for protection during cooling.
  • Cloud Nine flat irons come in small, medium, and wide plates. The shorter your hair is, the smaller your plate should be.
How do you choose the best straightener for your hair type?

Plate material is one of your irons most important features. The smoother the fabrication, the smoother your locks will be. Your iron should glide easily over your hair, settling your cuticles and exposing the entire hair shaft. This is why ceramics are often preferred. They distribute heat well and manage coarse, curly hair. If youre looking for a quick flat iron, titanium may suit you best, but if your hair is prone to heat damage, tourmaline traps in moisture.

Does the price of your iron really matter?

Extra features cost money, but not all of them will serve you. If your hair is undamaged, for example, youre likely to use only one heat setting, so a flexible temperature control system isnt a priority. If, however, you have chemically treated hair or are prone to drying, several temperature settings will help you to protect your locks. African American hair is best suited to tourmaline, which can be pricier than ceramic plates and its high temperature can be harsh on hair. Choose a protection serum before you straighten or iron your hair while its still damp. Special coatings that tame difficult locks come with a steeper price tag. Inexpensive plates are often made of glass or metal, which are poor straighteners for any hair and will degrade within a few years. Its worth paying more for floating plates, which flex enough to maintain contact with your hair.
