The 20 Best Flat Irons for Every Hair Type, According to Experts

If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, WWD may receive an affiliate commission.

Good hair days can make a person feel prepped, poised, and polished. While we love natural hair textures and think messy-pretty hair is always in, the fact is that we all have moments when we long for a styled-looking hairdo. This is why heated hair tools are essential — especially on days when your locks misbehave. Maybe you fell asleep with your hair wet and want to tame some unruly waves, or you simply want to style your hair straight for added shine and uniformity. Perhaps achieving ultra-straightness will just be the first step in styling a sleek, slicked-back pony. With countless reasons why you might want to straighten your hair on a given day, the flat iron is an essential within the realm of the best hair-styling tools. These heated straighteners are more versatile than you think and can be used to achieve different looks from glossy straight down ‘dos to beachy waves — and beyond.

What is a Flat Iron?
“A flat iron is a hot tool that is designed to smooth the hair and create straight or wavy textures,” says celebrity hair stylist Jess Elbaum. Similar to the best curling irons, explains that they come in different plate widths and materials that are designed to distribute heat and deliver it to the hair, with most popular materials being ceramic and titanium.
Plates typically come in 1″ widths, but wider widths and higher heats can be helpful for thicker, coarser hair types. Flat irons can provide a temporary straightening solution for all hair types, as well as providing an alternative to chemical straightening treatments that relax the hair but often contain irritating and questionable ingredients. In addition to straightening, they can be used to create waves and curls, all the while enhancing shine, de-frizzing, and making your strands more manageable.

15 Best Clarifying Shampoos to Remove Residue, Oil, and Buildup

15 Best Clarifying Shampoos to Remove Residue, Oil, and Buildup

Product buildup or a greasy scalp can sabotage an otherwise happy hair day, but adding a clarifying shampoo to your hair care routine can help. The best clarifying shampoos will thoroughly cleanse your hair and scalp, remove excess oil and residue, and leave your hair looking (and feeling) shinier and much, much cleaner. How do clarifying shampoos work?Your average clarifying shampoo will contain two key ingredients: a chelating agent and a surfactant, or cleaning agent. Chelating agents help cleanse the hair of minerals and built-up residue, as they “latch onto metal ions and draw them out of the hair,” Jamie Rosen Manning, MD, FAAD, tells SELF. The surfactant you’ll find in a clarifying shampoo will likely be a sulfate (which is what makes most shampoos lather and generate suds), and they help attract and rinse away oil, Dr. Manning explains.This combination of ingredients is extremely effective when it comes to deep cleaning hair, but it can strip natural oils that keep hair healthy, and even fade newly dyed hair. If you have colored hair or dry, brittle hair, a sulfate-free clarifying shampoo will be better suited to your needs. Both Dr. Manning and Emily Guo, MD, recommend looking for products that contain activated charcoal or apple cider vinegar, as these will stand in as gentler cleaning agents.Who might benefit from using a clarifying shampoo?You might think that clarifying shampoos are mainly useful for people with oily or fine hair (which, for the record, they absolutely are) but Dr. Guo tells SELF that people who regularly use styling products like dry shampoo and those who wash their hair with hard water could benefit from using them, too. In both cases, your hair is accumulating residue, either from the products you’re using or the minerals in the water, and that can make your hair feel dull, weighed down, or plain old greasy, Dr. Guo explains. Dr. Manning adds that people who swim in chlorinated pools can also deal with buildup from time to time, so they may want to consider using a clarifying shampoo, too. On the other hand, if you have dandruff, eczema, or psoriasis, a clarifying shampoo may make the peeling and flaking associated with those conditions worse, Dr. Manning says. You can always talk to your doctor or dermatologist if you’re curious about a product but aren’t sure about its effects. How often should you use a clarifying shampoo?“Clarifying shampoos are occasional use, rather than daily, shampoos,” Dr. Guo says. Dr. Manning echoes this point, stating that you should use a clarifying shampoo sparingly (as little as once every seven to 14 days) and your hair type and texture (straight, wavy or curly hair)  will help determine how often you should use a clarifying shampoo. If you have oily hair, for example, you’ll probably be able to use a clarifying shampoo more frequently than someone with dehydrated strands. You can think of a clarifying shampoo as more of a reset button than a regular cleanser, one that helps restore your hair’s “innate shine, softness and brilliance,” Dr. Manning says.So, while clarifying shampoos as a whole will provide your hair with that kind of healthy reset, the best clarifying shampoo for you will do so without drying out your hair, irritating your scalp, or messing with your hair color. With that in mind, we’ve highlighted a wide range of clarifying shampoos, including some bestsellers and expert faves, for a variety of hair types from major brands and retailers like Amazon, Sephora, Neutrogena, and more. Read on for cleaner, bouncier, shinier hair.

The Best Gifts for Hairdressers and Hair Stylists This Christmas

The Best Gifts for Hairdressers and Hair Stylists This Christmas

If makeshift quarantine haircuts taught us anything, it’s just how valuable (re: essential) our hairdressers truly are. ‘Tis the season to show your undying gratitude, so what better way to say thank you for their services (not to mention all the life chats you’ve exchanged in their magical chairs) than with one of the best gifts for hairdressers money can buy?
While the generous tips you add to your tab are greatly appreciated and go a long way, nothing says “happy holidays” than a gift you weren’t expecting to receive. This is especially true of hairdressers, notes Devin Toth, a hairstylist at Salon SCK in New York City. “Hairdressers spend so much time taking care of people that they often forget to take care of themselves,” Toth tells WWD. “To be the receiver of a service [or gift] instead of the provider reminds them of how it feels to be taken care of.”

Granted, shopping for the hairstylist on your list can be tricky; what you buy will ultimately depend on the relationship you have with your stylist. Does a gift serve as a thank you to your hairdresser, or are you shopping for a friend or loved one who cuts hair for a living? If you’re friendly or know them on a personal level, you can be more thoughtful and creative with gifts that hint at their hobbies or interests. However, if you’re not sure what they like or if it’s a newer relationship you’ve started with a stylist, stylist at Maxine Salon in Chicago, Shelly Aguirre says something like cash or a gift card to a local coffee shop or restaurant is a safe choice.
To help narrow down the options and spark inspiration for your shopping list, we’ve rounded up some of the best gifts for hairdressers, from the top beauty gifts they can use at home to chic home decor accents they can use to dress up their station at the salon.

1. TKEES Ines Shearling Slippers
Hairdressers are on their feet for hours at a time. The Ines Shearling slip-on from TKEES gives their tired soles something soothing to slip into after their shift. Lined with 100% shearling, these cozy slippers will be your favorite hairdresser’s go-to off-duty shoe. The pair comes in four colors (camel, chocolate, navy, and black), and can be worn both in and outdoors (which is perfect, seeing as how they’ll never want to take them off). Available in sizes 5 through 11, the Ines style runs a bit small, so it’s advised in-between sizes order up.

From the iconic looks of Princess Diana to Madonna, Kate Moss to Lady Gaga, each image proves McKnight isn’t just a stylist, but an artist, and his richly illustrated book is full of teachable moments for up and coming hairdressers, as well as expert commentary, to take note of.

3. OUAI Chill Pills
Hairdressers know celebrity stylist Jen Atkin’s brand, OUAI, for its ultra-luxe products, but they might not realize the label also sells self-care essentials, too. As a thank you gift for your hairdresser this holiday season, pay them back for all the life advice they offered free of charge with the ultimate chill pills (because they could use a little R&R, too). Each “pill” is a fizzy bath bomb fragranced with jasmine and rose and infused with jojoba, safflower, and hemp seed oils to moisturize, nurture, and soothe the skin — just what the doctor ordered.

Striking a match to the earthy, layered notes of ambrette seeds, sea salt, and sage will help your stylist unwind from the hustle and bustle of clients all day long. Plus, the high-grade wax was built to last up to 45 hours of burn time, so while $70 might sound steep for a candle, with Jo Malone, you get what you pay for.

5. Knesko Skin Gemstone Roller
Maine, Toth, and Aguirre all agree that treating your stylist to a pamper service, like a massage or facial, is also a lovely gesture. However, if you’re unsure what sort of spa treatment your hairdresser would enjoy, or how comfortable they’d feel going to a salon given the Coronavirus pandemic, an alternative hairdresser gift idea would be a product they could use to self-pamper at home. The Knesko Skin Gemstone Roller is an excellent option: Choose from four gemstones (rose quartz, obsidian, green jade, or white jade) depending on the energy you’d like to bestow on your stylist. The beauty tool will serve their skin as much as it serves their soul.

11 Shampoos That Will Banish Dandruff and Soothe an Itchy Scalp

11 Shampoos That Will Banish Dandruff and Soothe an Itchy Scalp

Between the telltale flakes and itchy scalp, dandruff is nearly impossible to ignore. However, it’s very possible to treat, as long as you use the best dandruff shampoo you can find (read: one that contains effective active ingredients and works well with your scalp and hair).In order to choose the best dandruff shampoo to thwart the tiny snowstorm on your scalp, it’s helpful to remember what causes dandruff in the first place. It can happen whether your skin is dry or oily, and in some cases, it can even happen as part of an allergic reaction to a hair care product. However, more often than not, dandruff crops up after an overgrowth of naturally occurring yeast (known as malassezia furfur) triggers an inflammatory reaction on your scalp. That overgrowth then leads to an excess of skin cells that eventually have to flake off as—you guessed it—dandruff. With that in mind, some of the best dandruff shampoos will contain antifungal ingredients, like ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, and zinc pyrithione, which will rein in the yeast that’s setting your dandruff in motion. SELF spoke with several dermatologists who sang the praises of antifungal shampoos for dandruff, but also noted that salicylic acid can be just as helpful when it comes to resolving your average case of flakes, thanks to its exfoliating properties. All of these ingredients are considered extremely effective as far as eliminating dandruff goes, but you may need to adjust how you use them depending on your hair type. Namely, if you have natural or curly hair, you may find that some anti-dandruff shampoos are too drying to use every time you wash your hair. “People will just tell everyone, ‘Use this dandruff shampoo every day,’ [but] that’s not really appropriate for people with curly hair or kinky hair, because shampooing too frequently dries their hair out,” Dina Strachan, M.D., board-certified dermatologist and director of Aglow Dermatology, tells SELF. If you don’t think your hair is suited to frequent washing with a dandruff shampoo, you can look for a product with added moisturizers or use the shampoo only once a week, which is the wash frequency that the American Academy of Dermatology recommends for people who have natural hair and dandruff. If you aren’t sure which product will suit you best or if your shampoo of choice doesn’t seem to be helping, talk to your dermatologist: They can help determine which shampoo is best for treating your dandruff and keeping your hair and scalp happy (Dr. Strachan says it’s not uncommon to recommend or prescribe treatments in addition to shampoo for her patients who have natural hair). If you find that your dandruff isn’t getting better after several weeks of regular shampooing (or if you’re dealing with redness and irritation on top of the usual flakes and itchiness), that’s another reason to get in touch with your dermatologist. There’s always a chance that you’re dealing with something other than dandruff, like eczema, that will need a diagnosis; or you might have dandruff that’s severe enough that you need a prescription-strength product to address it once and for all.Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most effective anti-dandruff shampoos you can try, based on recommendations from dermatologists. Read on to find the best dandruff shampoo for you—because we should all have something to reach for when flakes start to fall.
