Choose from ceramic or titanium

According to Gil Britto, the decision must start from the most important aspect: whether the hair has chemical straightening or not. In addition, the two different types of coatings need to be evaluated. Below, the professional explains how each of them works:

Pay attention to the temperature

Whereas each hair type supports a different heatnever fail to analyze the temperature of the plate before purchasing it.

Who has the fragile or chemically treated hair, I do not recommend going above 150ºC. A great option is the plates that offer temperature regulation”, he advises.
