The Ceramic Advantage
The plates of ceramic flat irons are coated with a hard type of pottery that is very smooth to the touch. Free of rough edges, ceramic plates move easily along the hair without snagging the strands. This makes ceramic flat irons gentler to the hair than irons with conventional metal plates and an excellent choice for anyone who straightens their hair daily. Ceramic flat irons also heat up quickly, and their plates remain at a consistent temperature from end to end. The even heating further reduces the risk of damage due to thermal styling. Once you have finished straightening your hair, a ceramic flat iron will cool down quickly, and its plates will be easy to clean due to their texture.
Ions to Smooth and Enhance Shine
Ceramic flat irons let your tresses benefit from ion technology. Ions are particles that have a negative charge, allowing them to combine with positively charged particles to neutralize static. At the same time, the ions generated by ceramic flat irons form an invisible seal over the hair strands that decreases the likelihood of frizz forming. Many people find that their hair feels sleeker and looks much shinier after using a ceramic flat iron.
Ceramic Plates in Every Size
You can simplify shopping for a ceramic flat iron by focusing on models that are the right size for your needs. People with medium length hair will usually get the best results from flat iron plates that measure approximately 1 inch in width. For shorter styles, look at smaller plates, and focus on larger plates for longer tresses.
