Is just titanium flat iron plates better then just ceramic?

im looking into this flat iron called babyliss pro nano titanium. Ive been looking at reviews lik crazy and i really want it. But i noticed that it says nothing about ceramic plates, it just has titanium plates. Are these better then ceramic plates? I know that its all good for your hair but ive never seen a flat iron with just titanium plates. If anybody can help that would be great. thank you(:

    Ceramic plates are in general considered much better for your hair than any metal plates so I would recommend ceramic plates over titanium plates. However, it might just be that the iron you wanted works really well, if you checked out the reviews and the types of hair it worked well for is the same as yours then it's a good choice for you!

    Hi,

    Titanium conducts heat faster than ceramic & cools down faster. While the benefit of titanium plates on a straightener may help reduce time operating, the effects of ceramic versus titanium comes down to the individual user, personally ceramic makes a big difference. They both operate in the same way (flattening the hair cuticle down to reflect light) ultimately providing the same end result.

    Ceramic plates are my personal choice as a hairdresser. If you want to get a Babyliss pro nano titanium plated straightener then get one. It will still perform well for you although personally I only ever use ceramic GHD or Paul Mitchell Straighteners because they out perform and out last all other straighteners. Either way the choice is yours ok. Make sure you get a heat protect spray. Just spray it into your hair, comb it through, makle sure your hair is dry then use your straightener.

    Hope that helps you a bit. Take care

    you should check this one and here is some info about plates :

    If you want a professional flat iron and you are ok with spending around $140 I would highly recommend the Karmin G3 Salon Pro, it heats up to 450f with temperature control, dual voltage, tourmaline ceramic plates with rounded edges which makes it great for also curling your hair. Also has a 3 year warranty. If you are in the US you can buy from http://myhairstylingtools.com,/ they are also giving away a free heat matt/carrying case and some heat serum that works really well. If you are in Canada you can buy at http://www.hairtools.ca/ If you do look at other irons make sure to stay away from irons with painted plates (colored plates) these can damage your hair.

    A little about plate quality:

    * Aluminum – 90’s and low quality, will stick to your hair and terrible results.

    * Colored Plates – Stay away from these, they may look nice but they are for show and they are not good for your hair.

    * Ceramic Plates – White or Yellowish color plate – These plates are good but they are older technology from around 2002. Many companies still use these as it is cheaper to manufacture than a tourmaline ceramic plate.

    * Titanium Plates – Gun Metal Grey color – These are great plates and provide great results. These and Tourmaline Ceramic plates are about the same in quality but work different with different hair types. You would need to try both to see which one provides the best results for your hair type.

    * Tourmaline Ceramic – Gun Metal Grey in color – These are currently the best plates on the market. currently I only see Karmin and Sedu using these plates. It appears all the other brands are focused on cutting costs by using the cheaper plates.

    Some features you should look for:

    * Variable Temperature Control (If you have thick hair make sure it heats up to at least 420F)

    * Swivel Cord

    * At least a 3 year warranty (most hair straighteners will die in the first year or two)

    * If you travel then make sure its dual voltage

    You can also check reviews at http://flatironsreviews.com/ to see their ranking of the top 10 flat irons. Good luck and I hope this helps.

    Titanium makes it much easier for you to safely style your hair quickly and efficiently.

    The ceramic works to smooth your hair, leaving it looking shiny and healthy.

    I personally prefer ceramic straighteners. :D
