Are you advised to use ceramic or tourmaline-flat-iron instead of the old metal or copper plated flat-iron? And now you are confused of which of the material - ceramic or tourmaline - is better. In the past, the metal or copper plated flat-irons are the only type of flat-irons available. Now the flat irons are made from ceramic and the most recently tourmaline is used for manufacturing. Tourmaline is a mineral compound which is ground into a fine powder and integrated with ceramic. After this, it is flattened and shaped to create tourmaline flat-irons. The best flat iron makes use of tourmaline material that is combined with the ceramic material. The tourmaline-flat-iron is actually the combination of tourmaline and ceramic.
This type of flat iron causes very less breakage and brittleness to your hair. Therefore your hair gets the most protection while styling with this tourmaline flat-iron. When the tourmaline and ceramic flat-irons are compared, usually there are no vast differences between them but some evident differences are: When considering the fact of protecting your hair from damages caused by heat, the tourmaline flat-iron is considered to be better than ceramic. This is because the tourmaline flat-irons produce more negative ions than the ceramic tools. The negative ions protect hair cuticle and lock the natural moisture thereby causing less adverse effect to your hair. The locking of natural moisture also prevents static electricity, tangles and knots. Further, the negative ions have the capacity to reduce the undesirable effects caused due to the positive ions. The negative ions help your hair to look very smooth and silky. To get a healthy looking hair, many professionals nowadays opt for tourmaline flat-irons. The additional advantage of using the tourmaline flat-irons for styling your hair is you would be taking considerably very less period of time - about 25 seconds - while the ceramic flat-irons take more time. Thus the damage it causes to your hair is very less. Moreover, you need not worry about the cost as it is available at an affordable price.
Recent FHI flat iron review has raved about the hype about their flat iron line called the FHIs Platform Series. This line comes in 8 versatile irons ranging from 4/10" to 1 3/4", plus a special domed iron for curls and waves. The highlights of these flat irons are the PTFC heater that provides quick heat up, heat recovery and heat distribution, the 3 layers of baked ceramics which provides durability and resistance to scratching and peeling, self-adjusting plates that reduce tension on hands and wrist for an easier grip, adjustable temperature dial that offers a wide operating temperature from 140 F to 450 F for all types of hair, extra long swivel cord for greater movement without cord tangling, and lastly the ergonomic handling designed for easy use.
Conversely, if you have long or coarse hair, then youre best using a wider plate. The company claims that the ceramic used in the plates of their flat iron are made from NASA tested ceramic - though Im not quite sure what this actually means. What follows are the pros and cons of the Farouk CHI Turbo flat iron. CHI flat irons come with a 10 foot swivel cord. This may seem like a minor point, but many other flat irons come with only 8 feet of cord - and not all are swivel cords. Having that extra couple of feet can make using the CHI flat iron really easy, especially when reaching behind to straightening hair at the back.
