Straightening irons, straighteners, or flat irons work by breaking down the positive hydrogen bonds found in the hair’s cortex, which cause hair to open and become curly or straight depending on the way you iron your hair.

Hair straighteners were invited in 1872 by Erica Feldman. She used heated iron rods to style her hair. Curling irons were the inspiration for straightening irons.

Straighteners have been around for over 100 years. They became popular in the 1960’s and they still are to this very day.
