Tech Savvy
If you rate low on the high-tech scale, our tool-term glossary will ensure you're fluent in geek speak. -Linda Kossoff
Styling technology is at an all time sizzle, and today's tools of the trade demand a new vocabulary
 Become fluent with this quick guide to what these high-tech terms mean, and why they're important to know.
BEVELED PLATES
What Hair iron plates with beveled (non~perpendicularl edges
Why: Improve ability to straighten or create curls, waves, flips and ringlets
CERAMIC
What An inorganic crystalline material
Why Ceramic hair iron plates and blow dryer parts retain heat better than metal and can host tourmaline particles (see Tourmaline, below)
FAR·INFRARED HEAT
What: Smooth, gentle heat wave that penetrates the cuticle without burning
Why: Minimizes heat damage; distributes heat more evenly and gently; accelerates dry time
LITHION ION BATTERYITECHNOLOGY
What:Rechargeable battery technology popular for use in portable electronics
Why: Lithion ion batteries hold charges longer than non-chargeable lithium batteries and can be recharged more times than other rechargeable battery types; better for the environment and more convenient for stylists
NANOTECHNOLOGY
What: A science that works with matter on a molecular level-a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter in size
Why: Smaller particles of certain materials and substances can better penetrate hair for more effective results. Examples:
Nanosilver: Silver particles kill harmful microbes inhabiting human skin and hair to optimize results
Nanotitanium oxide: Titanium (see below) particles sterilize and purify, lifting deposits and odor during styling, and inhibiting chemical buildup
NEGATIVE IONS/IONIC TECHNOLOGY
What: Negatively charged particles naturally produced from the semiprecious gem stone tourmaline (see below)
Why: Neutralize harmful particles and deposits; reduce positive static charge to minimize frizz and create smoother, silkier hair
TITANIUM
What: Chemical element also known as a "space-age metal"
Why: In hair irons, a very durable and an excellent conductor of heat; enhances the effect of the ions produced by ceramic tourmaline components
TOURMALINE
What Crystal silicate mineral compound classified as a semiprecious gem that emits a measurable ionic charge; can be suspended in ceramic
Why: Seals in moisture, protects hair, reduces static electricity and enhances shine
ULTRASONIC
What: Technology that produces sound waves and vibrations in frequencies beyond human hearing ability
Why: An alternative to heat; can help hair products penetrate more deeply
