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.
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.
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.
In my opinion the build quality and design of the CHI flat iron is superior to that that of the FHI flat iron. The handle on the CHI is more ergonomically designed and feels better in your hand; this is an important consideration if you will be using a flat iron a lot of the time and it makes straightening hair a lot easier and more pleasant. Both brands of flat iron come with swivel cords so you dont get tangled up but the CHI cord is longer than that of the FHI flat iron. Again this is a plus point as a longer cord makes using a hair straightener easier; especially when straightening your hair at the back.
