Some flat irons won't work in Europe, even with an adaptor. The voltage is too high, and if your flat iron doesn't have the voltage conversion number listed on it, then you can't use an adaptor. For instance, on some hair dryers it might say 125-250V. That tells you it will convert itself to use less power when you plug it in to an adaptor. But many flat irons only say 120V, and that tells you it will not be able to be used with an adaptor. I would suggest purchasing a new flat iron, one that has the ability to to use less voltage, or buy one with a European plug. That's what I did when I traveled to Italy.

Hair fall? For keeping the volume in your hair you can use Volumising shampoo and conditioner, When blow drying your hair lift your hair up by the roots and focus on there, But you should ALWAYS use some kind of Heat protector when blow drying and using a flat iron, When i use my flat irons i take a section of hair and piece by peice i start from the roots and in a curling motion i turn the flat iron so it leavs a curve in the hair and then do the rest of the hair normally :) and if that's nor working try back combing and Shockwaves ultra strong hold hair spray

How do i get Kristen Stewart's hair?

Well if your hair isn't her color you have to dye it. I recommend you go to a salon for it. The top of her hair is a Chestnut and the bottom half is black. The styling is easy. If your hair is curly curly you might want to buy a flat iron. I use a CHI. Half flat iron it, leave some wave. Take your hand through your bangs and move it up. Leave it the way it is and it will fall like hers. Hope helped.

Which hair straightener should you use if your hair is thick frizzy and curly?

One suggestion for a straightener is a "Conair Platnium" flat iron. Another one would be "Chi Flat Irons" which are usually very thin in width and that helps with making hair more defined and straight compared to the thicker flat irons. If you do use the Chi flat irons, part your hair and only use little bits of hair at a time when straightening it. This way the straight hair would last longer.Another contributor suggests using a Remington T/Studio as your hair will stay straight until you take a shower again.

What is the best flat iron for your hair?

Truly to my point of view the best hair straightener is Chi, because I have been borrowing it from my sister and it really is great to use. It straightens your hair immediately and it does not take that long to heat up!It is great with the hair, but do not have any part of your hair wet while doing it,because people said that it would burn your hair if it was not dried completely.
