How To Use a Sedu Flat Iron to Style Your Hair

Try These Hair Styling Tips with a Straightening Iron

Sedu flat irons are tools whose ultra-smooth plates are made of ceramic and tourmaline (a complex crystalline silicate containing aluminum, boron, and other elements).  They are one of the best flat irons on the market.  In theory, these plates generate more negative ions than regular ceramic plates, thus helping to eliminate damage to the hair cuticle (also known as frizz).  Another distinguishing characteristic of the Sedu flat iron is how quickly it heats up: 25 seconds from zero to 60 makes the Sedu the Maserati of flat irons.  
Just because you have the best hair straightening iron doesn't mean you know how to use it, however.  These hair styling tips should help guide you:

  1. Decide on your setting. Sedu flat irons come with a temperature range of 240-410 degrees.  If you have bleached, damaged or very fine hair, use the lower setting. For regular use on normal hair, use the middle setting.  For very coarse, thick, or ethnic hair, use the high setting.  For a graph that will guide you as to what temperature to set your Sedu, consult the Sedu website.
  2. Use your time wisely. Once you've decided on the setting for your Sedu, plug it in and you'll have 25 seconds of free time while it heats up.  Use this time wisely and put some product in your hair.  I recommend using a heat protectant along the lines of ghd iron oil (yes, "ghd" is the name brand and it's short for "good hair day"). 
  3. Now on to the fun: Styling!  Always use your Sedu on hair that is already dry.  If you have just washed your hair, blow it dry before styling.  Here are four fun styles to choose from:

    • Flat and Straight  Select a 2-inch section of hair from the top of your head.  Starting from the top, place the hair between the ceramic flat iron plates and gently squeeze the handle.  Slowly glide the iron through your hair to the ends.  Keep it moving at all times.
    • Soft Curls  Select a 2-inch section of hair from the top of your head.  Starting from the top, place the hair between the plates and gently squeeze the handle.  Slowly glide the iron through your hair to the ends.  When you reach the ends, wind the hair around the iron and release it.
    • Flip Out Select a 2-inch section of hair from the top of your head.  Starting from the top, place the hair between the plates and gently squeeze the handle.  Slowly glide the iron through your hair to the ends.
      When you reach the ends, flip hair out. 
       

  • Flip In Select a 2-inch section of hair from the top of your head.  Starting from the top, place the hair between the plates and gently squeeze the handle.  Slowly glide the iron through your hair to the ends.  When you reach the ends, flip hair in.
  • The Sedu is quite possibly the best flat iron for hair, but you have to know how to use it to be able to benefit from it. Good luck creating your next style!

    I'll have to try this -- having silky straight hair would be nice once in a while. Mine is naturally curly and while I like it, it would be fun to have straight hair, too!
