One of my favorite features of the Flat Iron Experts website is the "Top 3" listings for each type of product, so you can easily find the best in each category. The curling iron I reviewed is the Top #2 of curling irons, according to the site. The Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron is equipped with the latest Tourmaline Ceramic Technology that emits negative ions and far-infrared heat, and provides numerous benefits:
- Eliminates static electricity
- Neutralizes odors
- Preserves more moisture within the hair shaft
- Causes less damage to the hair cuticle
This curling iron is not only pretty with its red coating, but it does the job well. It heats up 428 degrees, has 40 heat settings, and features dual voltage. One of my favorite features is the extra long, heavy duty swivel cord which makes curling my hair easier since the cord works with me not against me. It took me awhile to find my perfect heat setting, but once I did, curling was easy and the curls lasted a long time. My cousin, who has shorter hair, also tried out the curling iron and pointed out how the clamp closes very lightly so that it glides over your hair rather than pulling on it like cheaper irons tend to do. This curling iron may be a bit more expensive, but it's worth the price!
The other product I reviewed while curling my hair is the Top #1 Heat Protectant Spray on the site: KQC Thermal Shine Spray. This is an ion-enriched polishing complex formulated for heat protection and ultra gloss hair shine. It's a lightweight mist that helps eliminate frizz and polishes hair without build-up. It works for any hair type, and really does add a nice shine to my hair. It also seems to make my hair softer and look better (more touchable and pretty) after curling or styling. The only thing I didn't care for was the smell, it was just a bit chemical-smelling. But aside from that, this works great!
