  • Ceramic Ionic - Creates silky shiny hair immediately while eliminating frizz 
  • Tourmaline - Infused into the plates is tourmaline which delivers negative ions to neutralize the hairs positive charge. This in turn creates smooth, calm, shiny hair strands.

Adapting the innovative ceramic technology, these devices are highly preferred for the safety and quality that it delivers on your hair. The barrels of these rods are manufactured with advanced ceramic material that emits a number of negative ions that can cancel the positive effect of heat. 

Ceramic rods are also efficient in locking the hair cuticle while styling, so that even the most sensitive hairs are protected from the extreme heat of the device. As a result, they can help in retaining the natural moisture of your hair. It also removes frizz and damaging spots and brings out smooth and super curled hair that lasts longer as compared to conventional tools.

For small curls, opt for curling iron with smaller barrel and vice versa. The heat control feature of the device also matters. Make sure that the device has a variable or adjustable temperature setting feature. There are many other added features to look for.
