Technology is always advancing in all areas, and the same is true for the hair care industry. It seems like every day there is a new advancement made when it comes to styling your hair. One of the latest breakthroughs is with hair straighteners that utilize the power of tourmaline.
The first question that most of you will ask is, What is tourmaline? Well, tourmaline is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in nature. It is a crystal silicate mineral that has been compounded with other minerals such as aluminum, potassium, iron, magnesium, sodium or lithium in order to create tourmaline. In its natural state, it is quite a striking looking gemstone.
So why is tourmaline suddenly being used in hair straighteners? That’s simple. Tourmaline is the only natural mineral that has been found that is such a strong source of negative ions. It’s also the only mineral that has been found to hold an electric charge permanently. Beyond that, there have been some studies that show that tourmaline is an effect tool against stress and strain, which will actually help to relax you.
What does that mean for my hair? This is an excellent question. When tourmaline particles are added to the plates of a hair straightener millions of negative ions are created which in turn creates far-infrared heat. Far-infrared heat actually dries the hair from the inside out instead of the outside-in which means that your hair becomes styled more quickly, with less contact with the hair iron. If your hair isn’t in contact with the iron as long, that means less damage over all.
But that’s not all, tourmaline actually smoothes the hair down, sealing the cuticle of the hair. When the cuticle is sealed, your hair lies flat giving it a shiny healthy appearance. No more, dry frizzy hair when you use a flat iron with tourmaline. Tourmaline actually improves the texture of your hair. What other flat iron can do that?
Many people believe that flat irons can be damaging to your hair and that you should only use them once in awhile. But with a tourmaline hair straightener, you are free to use your hair styling tools every day and not have to worry about causing any damage to your hair while you’re styling. Most tourmaline hair irons also utilize ceramic plates which means you get the added benefit of having a super smooth plate surface.
The ceramic plates coupled with the power of tourmaline give you hair the healthy shine and beautiful straight look all without any damage to your hair. And because tourmaline heats up so quickly, you can achieve these styles in a fraction of the time of regular straighteners, which means less time getting ready every day and less chance that your hair will be damaged by styling heat.
The benefits of hair straighteners with tourmaline are clear. They are absolutely the most effective and beneficial hair straighteners on the market today. You will pay a little bit more for a hair iron that uses tourmaline, but the results will speak for themselves. It’s an investment well worth the extra price. Once you use a hair straightener with tourmaline you will never go back to use anything else!
