A Powerful Ion Generator
The heating element inside of a tourmaline hair dryer is coated with a ceramic pottery material that is enriched with tourmaline gemstone pieces. Tourmaline hair dryers are ionic dryers, meaning that they produce negatively charged ion particles along with hot air. The ions boost manageability by taming fly-aways and making frizz less likely to form during blow-drying. While all ionic hair dryers provide sleeker, shinier results than conventional hair dryers, tourmaline ceramic models produce more ions than other types. As a result, the benefits of ionic technology are more pronounced when you blow-dry with a tourmaline model.
Other Benefits of Tourmaline Ceramic Dryers
Ion technology is just one of the many benefits that tourmaline blow dryers have to offer. Tourmaline ceramic heating elements conduct heat evenly along their surfaces, so the air that they produce is consistent in temperature and free of hot spots that can damage hair. In addition, tourmaline ceramic hair dryers stay at a regulated temperature with very little risk of overheating or burning out during use. The consistency of their temperature also speeds up drying times.
Finding the Perfect Model
There are many things to consider as you shop for the perfect new tourmaline hair dryer. The amount of tourmaline used in the design of hair dryer heating elements can vary. Normally, models that are more expensive will contain more tourmaline than other models, allowing them to generate more ions. Models also vary in their wattage rating. An 1875-watt hair dryer is adequately powered to meet most people's styling needs. Exceptions include those with very coarse or thick hair and those with very fine or thin hair who will benefit from higher and lower watt models, respectively.
