The terms ceramic and tourmaline get thrown around often when speaking about the tools like dryers, straighteners, curlers, etc. But do you know what ceramic tourmaline technology really is?
All of the options in the market can be confusing for sure. And when there comes a time to purchase professional tools, it's important to make the right investment. Below you'll find a simple explanation of what all the fuss is about in regards to this technology.
Ceramic plates are always preferred when it comes to flat iron. Ceramic glides through the hair without pulling and tugging at it, reducing breakage and damage to the hair. Ceramic also heats up quickly and evenly, requiring fewer passes of the iron through the hair. Look for irons that have ceramic plates and not just a ceramic coating.
Tourmaline is a crystal boron silicate mineral that aids in the hair smoothing process. Tourmaline emits negative ions that counteract the positive ions present in dry or damaged hair. This results in smooth, shiny hair. The tourmaline even helps to seal moisture into your hair and counteracts frizz.
Tourmaline is added to the ceramic plates by first being crushed into a fine powder that is then baked into the plates and other elements of the iron. You can also find tourmaline technology added to brushes, combs, curling irons, and more.
Well, there you have it. Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of the definitions of all of this technology in a clear and informative manner. So next time when you’re on a hunt of styling tools with this technology, you'll sound like the pro that you truly are!
