In my opinion, the build quality and design of the CHI flat iron is superior to that that of the FHI flat iron. The handle on the CHI is more ergonomically designed and feels better in your hand; this is an important consideration if you will be using a flat iron a lot of the time and it makes straightening hair a lot easier and more pleasant. Both brands of flat iron come with swivel cords so you dont get tangled up but the CHI cord is longer than that of the FHI flat iron. Again, this is a plus point, as a longer cord makes using a hair straightener easier; especially when straightening your hair at the back.
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.
I have one major criticism of CHI flat irons: they dont use Tourmaline plates. Many manufacturers are now infusing Tourmaline on to the ceramic plates. Ceramic plates emit negative ions, but Tourmaline emits 6 times more. Negative ions are important as they help to close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. Negative ions greatly reduce frizziness. Tourmaline is the next technical advanced in hair straightening. Why CHI hasnt yet used this material is hard to say. And, CHI flat irons arent cheap; for the same money you can buy a tourmaline flat iron from a competitor like the T3 Tourmaline flat iron. So, is the Farouk CHI flat iron any good? The answer is yes. The CHI is a top rated flat iron with many excellent reviews from consumers and professionals alike. One final point: you can buy the CHI Farouk Pink Flat Iron and Hair Dryer Set with matching case. For every set that is bought, CHI donates a portion of the products sales to support the effort for finding a cure for breast cancer.
Although they are advertised as Wet-to-Dry flat irons, they are not meant to be used on soaking wet hair; Hair should first be dried a little with a towel: Damp-to-Dry would be amore appropriate, though less catchy term. Also, Wet-to-Dry flat irons can also be used on dry hair, just as you would do with traditional flat irons. Whichever Wet-to-Dry flat iron you choose, you can rest assured that Wet to Dry flat irons are here to stay and will become more popular. If youve never heard of wet to dry flat irons, go online and read the many reviews. In conclusion, they have two major advantages over traditional hair strengtheners: you damage your hair less by avoiding having to blow dry it first and it takes less time to straighten your hair.
