Best Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron

Why people love it
  • Actually protects hair 
  • Leaves hair looking terrific 
  • Fast heating

This is an amazing all-around, tourmaline ceramic flat iron with auto shut-off, variable heat settings, and 1” floating plates.

It’s expensive and there are a small fraction of users that have experienced issues very early in the life cycle. 


This isn’t the hottest of all flat irons - though it does crack the 400ºF mark. And, its not the most expensive model - especially for a salon-quality machine. But those two factors combined mean that you’ll take a much closer look before you click the buy button. Fortunately, you’re going to find it’s an incredible hair straightener - and it doesn’t do too bad with curling and flipping either.

The tourmaline-coated ceramic floating plates operate with a combination of negative ions and infrared heat. You’ll get accurate temperatures quickly - and this flat iron can also hold the heat well. The anti-slip edges are a bonus and we appreciate the extended warranty (which you really should get for the price). In addition, this 1” flat iron is available in enough colors to make you smile. So, go on - take another look at this.
