When you are looking for hair straighteners, flat irons are a popular option. Titanium, silver, porcelain and ceramic flat irons offer different degrees of heat and protection for your hair. You can choose how long and wide you want the plates, and whether you want a normal size or mini flat iron for shorter hair or travel. In a big hurry to get out the door? No problem. Choose an instant heat and recovery straightener to speed up your hairstyling routine. Walgreens.com carries popular flat iron brands like Conair and CHI.
The plate material you choose can also make a big difference on your style results. Ceramic, titanium, and tourmaline are the most common terms you'll come across. Ceramic plates hold heat well and provide even heat distribution, preventing any hot spots on the plates can cause damage. Ceramic is especially effective for fine hair that can be especially vulnerable to heat damage. While many hair straighteners have ceramic coated plates, plates made entirely from this material are more effective, as this coating can wear off over time. Tourmaline is a gemstone, but when crushed and used to coat the plates of a hair straightener, it has properties and results similar to ceramic plates.
