Cheap drugstore curling irons are made with inferior materials that can ultimately damage your hair as you style it. For those who style their hair often and want healthy luxurious locks, it is absolutely essential to use professional hair styling tools. Good quality curling irons use better materials for the barrel of the iron, which has direct contact with your hair. A professional ceramic curling iron has a ceramic coating on the barrel over the metal, which helps hair retain its moisture, and provides smoother curls. The ceramic element also heats up more evenly thus providing more effective curling that stays in your hair better.
