With the increasing trend of hair straightening, the interest of people in flat irons has elevated greatly. Women nowadays are using a flat iron at home to straighten their hair. But what types of flat irons are available in the market? What are the key differences between them? And what flat iron is best for your hair type? All these questions remain unsolved. If you are going to purchase a flat iron then I would recommend you to read this post on “best flat iron for fine hair” before shopping.
People looking for flat irons come across the term ceramic and titanium flat iron usually but are confused about the key differences between these two. If you have landed in this article then probably you are one of those people. But don’t worry all of your queries and uncertainties about ceramic and titanium flat iron will be solved by the end of this article.
Heat Distribution: If you are looking for professional-looking straight hair than the feature you should be worried about is heat distribution. If heat is distributed evenly along with the plates then you will get uniform looking straightened hair.
Ceramic plates ensure even heat distribution. Titanium plates also give good heat distribution but ceramic plates are better than titanium plates in case of heat distribution.
If you are still confused then let me clear, if you have thin fine hair then probably you should buy ceramic plated flat iron.
Heat Transfer/Penetration: The second most important feature in choosing flat iron is its heat penetration. The choice of this feature is highly dependent on the type of your hair. Titanium plates provide greater heat penetration which is the property of this metal.
If you have thick coarse hair then you should buy titanium plated flat iron as it gets heated up quickly and can deal with stubborn hair.
Price: Ceramic is expensive material than titanium that is why you will find most of the ceramic plated flat irons expensive than titanium plated flat irons. However, price doesn’t only matter by the material of plates but also depends on the company and additional features that the company provides.
Durability: If you are buying flat iron than probably you would be worried about its durability too. Even though ceramic material is expensive but requires great care and is less durable than titanium flat iron. If you can’t keep good care of your flat iron or you use it roughly then you should go for titanium plated flat iron.
Convenience: If you are a daily hair straightener user and are looking for a convenient hair straightener then titanium is the best choice as it is lightweight material. Ceramic might be heavy weighted but it has its own advantages.
If you are new at using hair straightener then you might end up burning or damaging your hair when using titanium flat iron because it gets heated up really quickly and can get at very high temperatures. However ceramic flat iron heats up gradually and gives proper heat distribution over the plates thus eliminating the uncertainty of damaging your hair if dealt carelessly.
We hope this article has solved all your queries and your mind is now clear about which flat iron to buy.
