The Maxiglide MX-597 One Step Hair Straightening Iron is cheaper than the Corioliss and it also comes with steam burst technology. This Maxiglide flat iron comes with two sets of ceramic plates; the first set is the usual smooth ceramic plates found on most flat irons, and the second set of plates has small teeth like a comb, which help to detangle hair and brush it as the same time. Maxiglide claim that, just as you use bursts of steam when ironing out creases in your clothes, so too you use steam to straighten out stubborn curly hair. This sounds great but there are some minus points with the Maxiglide wet to dry flat iron. First off, the appliance has a water reservoir for the steam, which means that the unit is a little heaver and bulky making it difficult for some to use. Also, the plates are 4 inches wide making it a little unwieldy. Finally, some have complained that the detangling pins of the ceramic plates, far from helping to straighten hair, but actually make the task harder to accomplish. But despite these complaints, many find the Maxiglide MX-597 One Step flat iron an excellent hair straightener.
CHI flat irons are a very popular choice of hair straightener. The Farouk CHI flat iron was the first to have ceramic plates, making it a best seller. But are todays CHI flat irons any good or have they been eclipsed by other brands of flat iron? You can still buy the original CHI ceramic flat iron. Its the cheapest model in the CHI range and falls into the medium priced category for flat irons. It comes with 1" ceramic plates, heats in seconds and is still a very good hair styling tool. But if youre thinking of buying a CHI flat iron then you might be best to buy a Farouk CHI Turbo flat iron. CHI Turbo flat irons come in 3 different plates sizes; 0.75", 1" and 2". Choosing what size is best for you depends on your type of hair. Generally, the shorter or thinner your hair the narrower the plate size.
The ConairPro Plimatic flat iron is a step up from the Trix Stix. Like the Trix Stix the Conair Plimatic has gold plates - a major minus. The rest of the features of the Plimatic are pretty much the same as the Trix Stix. The only major difference is that the plates are 2" wide. Conair promote this flat iron by saying it heats up in less than 60 seconds, but other manufacturers flat irons can heat up in a tenth of this time. If you really want to get serious about straightening your hair with a Conair flat iron you really have to go with either the 1" or 2 ½" Conair Ceramic Heat flat iron. These are much more powerful flat irons with 200 watts of power compared to only 32 watts with either the Trix Stix of Plimatic.
Sedu flat irons are about 50% more expensive than Solia flat irons. Sedu flat irons have gained popularity because of their association with Jennifer Aniston. Many want to have the same look and believe that using a Sedu tourmaline flat iron will give them this. Whilst this is true, perfectly straight, shiny, sleek hair can be obtained using other brands of flat iron. But there is no doubt that a tourmaline flat iron from Sedu is a top rated product and delivers on its promise of creating smooth, straight hair. Although the heat up time of the Sedu Ionic Ceramic flat iron is not as quick as some other brands, it is still ready to use in only 25 seconds. The plate widths of Sedu flat irons are either 1 or 1 ½ inches. The body of the Sedu flat iron is made from high-strength composite materials, which makes the Sedu one of the lightest flat irons on the market.
