If you're seeking a bit of a tighter curl with your Cortex curling wand, try this one-incher, available in black or pink. The ultra smooth plates on this wand prevent annoying hair snags while giving you long-lasing and frizz-free curls. Like all of their curling irons, this Cortex wand is made of 100% Tourmaline. This natural material combines the following two technologies, giving you a high gloss shine and less damage than other wands. Negative Ions - Even though they don't sound good, negative ions are a very good thing for your hair! Not only do they stop the growth of bacteria, they aide in the penetration of small water molecules into the hair cuticles. Negative ions result in less damage to the hair cuticle, leaving you with a shiny finish. Far Infrared Heat - FIR technology in this Cortex wand penetrates deep into the hair shaft to lock in moisture and natural oils, resulting in a shinier look and less damage. Professional grade curling iron. Tourmaline cone and infrared technology. Ultra smooth plates will not pull or snag hair. Tangle free swivel cord. Comfortable non-slip grip.
