Temperature

The temperature of a flat iron plays an important part in not only how well it will straighten your hair but, how much damage it will or will not cause to your hair. In our opinion, it is best to choose a straightener in which you can adjust the temperature according to your hair type.

The Tyme tourmaline ceramic flat iron features a variable temperature control (140F- 450 F). Because of the wide range of heat settings, this is a ceramic hair straightener that will work well for any type of hair.

The Tyme flat iron is also a great choice if you are looking for an iron that is quick to heat up. Its ceramic heater with autosense technology provides instant even heat.

Although you can adjust the temperature settings to best suit your hair type, it is still important to note that using a thermal protecting product on your hair prior to straightening your hair is highly recommended.

Ceramic/Tourmaline Ion Technology Plates

The Tyme flat iron seals the moisture into your hair and uses the heat to create a silky, fresh out of the salon, look. The Tourmaline-Ceramic plates make your hair softer, shinier, and overall more healthy looking than regular ceramic plates in less time. The ion plates emit up to 6 times more negative ion.

Heating plates wrap around the edge for easy finishing touches. It can be used on damp hair (Not soaking wet) or dry hair. It is available in 3 sizes 1”, 1 ¼” and  1 ¾”. The most popular size is the 1 ¼” plate. It is wide enough for short, medium and long hair, yet narrow enough for bangs. The 1 ¾” is recommended for medium to long or hard to straighten hair.

The ion ceramic plates are self-adjusting which provides perfect contact between your hair and the plates. This will eliminate any “hot spots” that would damage your hair. This will result in delivering even heat to your hair.
