Ionic Technology and Flat Irons

May 24, 2008
Many hair-straightening and hairstyling fanatics are not fully aware of the great benefits of using a flat iron with tourmaline ionic properties. Hairstyles fashioned by flat irons are a very popular trend these days, and the major contributing factor to getting a fashionable look is using a hair tool that uses a specific technology - Tourmaline.

Tourmaline is actually a semi-precious gemstone that is comprised mainly of a crystal silicate mineral compound. It is well-known for its ionic properties. This gemstone is crushed and compounded into the ceramic plates of the hair straightener. When the hair straightener is heated and ready for use, the ceramic plates then emit negative ions produced from the tourmaline.

Negative ions are what enable your hair to be styled. It is also what smoothes out your hair and prevents static, thus maximizing straightness and silkiness. Tourmaline technology has been duplicated by many name brands as well as many generic brands of hair tools. From personal experience, I can honestly say that lesser-known generic brands do not perform as well, and do not last as long as the name brands out there.

Flat Iron Brands

There are many brands of flat irons and hair tools, so it may be a bit confusing to think of which one is best or which one will suit your personal styling needs. Popular brands of flat irons include Sedu, Solia, T3, Farouk Chi, and GHD.

Sedu is my personal favorite because all models of their flat irons are lightweight, very portable, and they get my hair looking exactly the way I want it to. No other hair straightener has gotten my hair as straight as the original Sedu flat iron.

Solia's flat iron is a bit heavier than Sedu, but many have seemed to view these two as near equals.

T3 has been a trusted and authoritative brand in hair salons for a while now. T3 products are used by my personal hair stylist and work very well. However, they are pricier than the two mentioned above if you do not get the T3 on sale.

Chi flat irons are also great, but I have already stated which flat iron I liked best.

I have seen GHD used by celebrity hairstylists on television. Although I cannot vouch for them personally, GHD must have some merit if they are being used by these well-known hairstylists.

What to Consider When Choosing a Hair Straightener

If you are in the midst of deciding which hair straightener to choose, I recommend choosing a name brand that has ceramic, tourmaline, and ionic technology. Hair straighteners containing these properties will immensely contribute to a great hairstyle!
