To lessen damage to hair caused by heat, some flat iron manufacturers have developed Wet to Dry flat irons. This type of flat iron avoids blow drying hair and so lessens heat damage. Some of the top rated Wet to Dry flat irons are: the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry flat iron, the Wigo Wet-to-Dry flat iron and the Remington Wet to Dry flat iron. The Remington Wet to Dry flat iron is the cheapest of these, followed by the Wigo Wet to Dry flat iron. The T3 Tourmaline Wet to Dry is the most expensive; at 3 times the cost of the Remington and 2 times the cost of the Wigo!
Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with tourmaline plates. If youre going to buy a flat iron you must buy a model with tourmaline plates. Basically, tourmaline gives off negative ions, which have been shown to lock in moisture into the hair follicle and help to straighten hair without excessive heat damage. Both Sedu and Solia are American-designed flat irons, though both are actually manufactured in the Far East. Both come with 1-year warranties. Both have quick heat-up times of less than 30 seconds. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with variable settings. However, the Solia just nudges ahead because its heat setting ranges from 140F - 450F, whereas the Sedu flat iron has a slightly narrow range: 240F - 410F.
The cheapest model on offer is the ConairPro Plimatic Trix Stix Series flat iron. First off, lets list is good points. It comes with 1" plates: a plate width many people feel comfortable using. Its smaller in size than many other flat irons, has a swivel cord and comes with dual voltage for worldwide use making it an ideal travel flat iron. The tips of the plates remain cool and the plates are ultra-slim making it great for shaping, flipping, lifting and smoothing short to medium hairstyles. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron does have some draw back. The Trix Stix uses gold colored metal plates and not ceramic. You wouldnt expect tourmaline in a flat iron as cheap as this but, in this day an age, you expect ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are smooth so dont tangle hair as much as metal and ceramic also emits negative ions to help keep hair straight. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron is fine for those with short/medium manageable hair or a as a travel flat iron but if your hair is thick or curly youll want to use a different flat iron.
Tourmaline plates also protect color and retards fading by sealing in color molecules and allows the color to last up to 2 weeks longer. Not only does the FHI Heat technique Professional beat the CHI Farouk on straightening power, it also costs less. In fact, FHI flat irons are considerably cheaper than CHI flat irons. Well, it all depends on your needs and what you want from your flat iron. If you want a well designed, well-built flat iron, then the CHI Farouk flat iron is for you. But, if you want a tourmaline flat iron, then the FHI is the recommended choice. Finally, you should consider price. FHI flat irons are cheaper than CHI flat irons. If youre on a budget or dont want to spend a lot on a quality flat iron, the FHI is the one. Both the CHI and FHI flat iron are top rated flat irons. Just decide what you want and how much you want to spend.
