Tourmaline Flat Irons
The type of Tourmaline Flat Iron uses tourmaline, a semi-precious mineral also known as complex aluminum borosilicate.
Tourmaline is used in this particular type of hair straightener because of its unique property when heated. It creates pyroelectricity, one end becomes positively charged and other becomes negatively charged. This property allows tourmaline flat irons to emit negatively charged ions that help smoothen the hair by sealing the cuticles. This also helps the hair retain moisture. The result is smoother, shinier and healthier hair.
Tourmaline plates are also smoother than ceramic, lessening friction when sliding it through the hair. Thus, using a tourmaline hair straightener can help condition the hair and prevent damage from frequent use.
Aside from producing better results, tourmaline also eliminates the need for more hair styling products to achieve the smooth, shiny and frizz-free look. Tourmaline, being a source of negative ions and far infrared rays, is also claimed to help improve circulation, relieve stress, and increase mental alertness.
The tourmaline crystal is usually crushed or ground then used in several ways in hair straightening tools. A number of ceramic flat irons have tourmaline ‘infused’ in the ceramic plates while others have a thin coat of tourmaline over the plates.
Tourmaline hair straighteners are recommended if you have really curly or frizzy hair. They are readily available from your local drugstore to high-end beauty products stores. This latest Tourmaline technology is more expensive than all other alternatives, but it works just like a magic!!!
