Hair in religion also plays an important role since women and men, when deciding to dedicate their life to faith, often change their haircut. Catholic nuns often cut their hair very short, and men who joined Catholic monastic orders in the eighth century adopted what was known as the tonsure, which involved shaving the tops of their heads and leaving a ring of hair around the bald crown.[39] Many Buddhists, Hajj pilgrims and Vaisnavas, especially members of the Hare Krishna movement who are brahmacharis or sannyasis, shave their heads. Some Hindu and most Buddhist monks and nuns shave their heads upon entering their order, and Korean Buddhist monks and nuns have their heads shaved every 15 days.[41] Adherents of Sikhism are required to wear their hair unshorn. Women usually wear it in a braid or a bun and men cover it with a turban.[citation needed]

Love my straightener and i’ve had it for about a year now
I have straight fine blonde hair and this straightener helps me get so much more sleekness and volume. It is sturdy and heats up so fast plus I love how it sleeps if you leave it on too long so that it won't burn your house down.
While it isn’t the fastest heating hair straightener we have reviewed, the CHI Air Expert Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron warms up to temperature in just one minute! If one minute seems like too long for you to wait, try adding a bit of multitasking into your morning routine by taking advantage of this found time. If you are at a loss for what you can do in just one minute, check out this list for a little inspiration:
The Mighty Mini Downtown Styler features lightweight, durable, and microscopically smooth titanium plates which can be used to create straight, wavy, and curly styles with a silky, snag-free finish. A ceramic heating element emits far-infrared heat which locks in moisture and protects the hair cuticle from damage. Reaching 400°F in under a minute, the ceramic produces negative ions which close the cuticle for smooth, shiny, frizz-free results.
Xtava’s two inch-wide plates are massive, making them perfect for people with thick or coarse hair. Aside from the plates, everything else about this flat iron is fairly standard. You can use it at a temperature range in between 265 and 445 degrees Fahrenheit, the plates are made with tourmaline and ceramic, and it takes less than two minutes for the tool to fully heat.
I was able to register my straightener online at ghd...i hope my sister likes this just as much as I do.
I don’t think the flat iron as a styling tool needs any introduction, and many of you have probably used one at some point. I know how hard it is to pick the perfect styling tool for your hair – at least, the one that’s good enough. So, to make it a bit easier for you, I’ve decided to draw up a list of top 10 flat irons. It’s based on both, my own experience and other people’s flat irons reviews. So, I’m trying to be objective and bias-free here.
Love this tool. Works great in every way.

A fabulous duo of top notch ghd products. Firstly the styler it's easy to use as it automatically heats to a predetermined non adjustable 185 c optimal for styling without damaging hair. Should one need a higher temperature then this is not for you. It's supplied with a chunky 20 cm square heat mat to protect surfaces and it auto powers off after 30 minutes if not in use. Given its speedy heat up rate I reckon this could be reduced to 10 minutes in use great results are possible with very little practise.and the hairdryer very nicely balanced with good access to the controls without stopping. The lower switch is the 3 position fan speed off medium high but it doesn't sit quite right ... To get to the highest speed one has to push the end of the switch down into the handle its as though the switch has not been installed level vertical but it's not a huge problem the 3 position heat switch is much better. The cold shot button requires a fair bit of effort to hold in with 1 finger for anything more than a few seconds.both have very good quality cable that are properly flexible unlike some 2.7 m styler 3.0 m on the dryer. With regard to cables the manufacturer's make it clear that the cables should not be wound around the device but folded as they were as they came out of the box ... That's ok in theory but using the twist ties is not practicable so it would have been useful to include some cheap and easy method of coiling the cable especially for travelall said and done superb kit with a niggle about a switch and cable storage
During this period, Western men began to wear their hair in ways popularized by movie stars such as Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Rudolph Valentino. Men wore their hair short, and either parted on the side or in the middle, or combed straight back, and used pomade, creams and tonics to keep their hair in place. At the beginning of the Second World War and for some time afterwards, men's haircuts grew shorter, mimicking the military crewcut.[30]
my second purchase of ghd straighteners with the previous ones lasting 5 years with no loss of performance during this time. I use them daily. Hopefully these will last as long. Purchased from amazon as they offer such good customer service as well as a good price. There are a lot of fake ghds out there on other websites who are selling them at cheaper prices.
