Is titanium or ceramic better for curling irons?

The two most common materials used to create curling irons are ceramic and titanium. “Personally, I like ceramic curling irons better, as it heats up slowly and steadily and offers a very consistent and gentle heat distribution,” says Marjan.


What are the different types of curling irons?
