This Gold Bauer Professional Tourmaline Ceramic Pro Styling Wand uses the latest technology for protecting hair when styling. Tourmaline, a semi-precious mineral which only generates negative ions when heated, closes the cuticle layer creating smooth hair and better styles. The Tourmaline coating allows the wand to heat up faster, and protect the hair from heat damage. The ultra slim 9mm barrel can achieve super tight curls and is safer with its stay cool tip. In addition to its good looks, this styling wand also has practical extras like 1.8m power cord, a 360 degree swivel to prevent cord twists and knots and a hang loop.
