Let’s address the Brinea Mini Flat Iron’s ionic component. An ion is as an atom in which the number of electrons and protons are not the same. When a hair tool has ionic in its name, it means that it can generate negative ions. Hair has high water content, making it positively charged. When negative ions come in contact with hair, the positive charge is neutralized. This leaves your hair straight, sleek, shiny and smooth.
Ceramic plates provide even heat distribution, ensuring that there will not be extreme hot or cold spots. This is critical for three reasons:
- you get consistent results
- there is less risk that you will burn or damage your hair cuticle
- decreases the amount of time you need to run the iron over your hair
Another important characteristic is that these plates heat up extremely fast – Brinea flat irons and wands reach their highest temperatures in just 30 seconds! Ceramic’s natural infrared heating does not harm hair’s exterior layer but gently warms the hair from the inside. This retains moisture within each strand, creating a superb shine and a healthy look.
Here is one crucial thing to keep in mind – not all flat irons and wands are pure ceramic like Brinea’s Hair Stylers, many of them are aluminum. They are just coated with ceramic on the top. Such models are less expensive, but you need to be extra careful when using them. This coating can chip or peel, revealing less quality metal below. These peeled areas can snag your hair! So always try to find out if an iron is coated or not.
You can even find costly professional models that are not 100% ceramic. Solid or pure ceramic are words that you are looking for. One big problem is that ceramic plates can crack after some time. These cracks can snag the hair and give you an awful experience.
There is one more thing you need to know about the materials used in the ceramic plates of Brinea’s Hair Styler Range. That is tourmaline. It is a crystal that is ground into a fine powder and infused into the plates of the Brinea’s flat irons and wands. When this mineral is heated, it produces enormous amounts of negative ions, much more than ceramic alone. Negative ions allow for faster straightening process, preventing heat damage and help create extremely sleek, shiny hair.
So the next time you read ionic, ceramic, or tourmaline – you will know exactly what each of these terms mean.
