Ceramic Vs Titanium Curling Iron
Before heading to make a buying decision, one should always be aware of the material from which a curling iron is made.
As a matter of fact, what works for one user may not be suitable for others. Therefore, it has to be an informed decision so that you may avoid regretting your decision.
For that matter, just to make your decision making easier, we have tried to measure both materials on following parameters.
How quickly your curling iron heat up is first test of the materials. Titanium takes the cake in this regard.
Likewise it also transfers the heat to hair strands much faster than any other material. However, this aspect should be considered with your hair types.
Because quick heat may work well with medium to thick hairs but not with thinner and fine hairs. Therefore, Ceramic material is most suited for women having fine hairs.
This could be a disadvantage to Titanium plates. A Titanium iron may not transfer even heat due to cold spots.
These cold spots do not pass on the same heat as other part of the titanium plates. This keeps some part of the hair undone.
Whereas ceramic plates distribute even heat to all sections of hairs.
Above all, budget for your iron will decide whether to pick a ceramic or titanium curling iron.
Ceramic iron is an expensive material but titanium will take the lead as it suits people looking for quality products.
One can never underestimate the importance of durability of the product no matter how expensive or cheap it is.
Although Ceramic curling iron provides even heat distribution but it relatively lacks durability in comparison with Titanium curling iron.
Ceramic plates need to be taken care of dearly as it gets crack quite easily in case of a drop off.
On the other hand, although Titanium is light weight metal but it is super strong. Resultantly, It can endure the harshness of use for a longer time than ceramic.
Being lightweight, Titanium is more convenient to be used. It is because you don’t have to be worried about slipping or dropping the Titanium iron as compared to Ceramic.
Nonetheless, Titanium is super sensitive and it may burn very fine hairs. Therefore, for such hair types, ceramic is the best bet. One of the most prominent example of curling irons made of Titanium is Tyme Curling Iron. Its latest version Tyme Iron Pro introduced in 2018 is getting popularity amongst hair enthusiasts.
