Everyone has different hair, but we are all looking for the same thing: for it to look good. Some people can achieve that naturally, while others require a little bit of help that comes in the form of a curling iron. There’s no shame in that— just make sure you’re selecting a curling iron that’s right for you. Ideally, you’re looking for a curling iron that keeps frizz at bay, that works for all different types of hair, and that can be used to create a number of different looks.

It’s no secret that putting heat on your hair does some damage (which is where heat protectants come in play, but that’s for another time), and damage can often show its face as frizz. Thus, (in addition to using a heat protectant) you want a curling iron that combats frizz, which usually is possible thanks to a tourmaline ceramic material used in the iron itself.
