Tourmaline is a precious crystal that is ground down into a fine powder and then infused onto the ceramic plates of a flat iron. Tourmaline plates produce a far greater number of negative ions than do ceramic plates. Negative ions straighten your hair for far longer and give it a silkier shinier look. So if youre thinking of buying a flat iron you should only buy a flat iron with plates that have been plated with tourmaline. But which is the best tourmaline flat iron? Surprisingly the vast majority of producers still make ceramic only flat irons. However the market leaders in flat iron design and manufacturing now produce tourmaline flat irons. The following are market leaders in tourmaline flat iron technology and all make top rated tourmaline flat irons. Which tourmaline flat iron is best depends on your hair type what function you want and how much youre willing to spend.
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.
One of the cheapest top-rated tourmaline flat irons is the Solia Tourmaline Ceramic Ion Flat Iron. The Solia tourmaline flat iron comes in four plate sizes; the 3/4"plate is perfect for bangs and really short hair and is also the perfect size for creating all sorts of curly-haired styles. Plate widths also include the 1" and 1 ¼" - the latter being the most popular size. These sizes are perfect for medium hair length or hair that isnt too curly. If you hair is difficult to straighten then you should definitely go for the 1 ¾" plates on the Solia tourmaline flat iron. Solia flat irons come with Dynamic Alignment System to ensure perfect contact between the plates and your hair. The Solia Limited Edition Pink flat iron is a very popular model however if youre looking to buy a pink flat iron the Corioliss pink flat iron is a better choice; it looks better and heats up quicker than does the Solia but it is a lot more expensive - more about Corioliss in a moment. Finally Solia claim that their tourmaline flat irons can be used on wet hair - actually damp hair that has been first combed through. This is a real plus point as using wet to dry flat irons avoid having to first use a hair dryer.
