Ceramic vs. Tourmaline vs. Titanium Plates

While choosing the best straightening for your hair you must know about the plating. There are three most common flat iron plates, which are ceramic, tourmaline and titanium. Each one will straighten hair, but different attributes make each more beneficial for certain hair textures, ranging from fine wavy hair to kinky coils.

  • Ceramic irons are affordable and they don't get as hot as titanium and tourmaline. which can be a good thing, depending on your hair’s health and texture. Ceramic flat irons are ideal for those with dry, damaged or fine hair,
  • Tourmaline plates contain silicate and straighten the hair with less heat. It also smooth’s the hair cuticle and adds moisture-locking ions to the hair. 
  • Titanium is best suited for professional salon use because of its strong, durable metal. Titanium flat iron plates heat up the quickest and iron also heats evenly, which allows for fewer passes over the hair and gives much better results than the ceramic iron.
