Deciding on what is the best flat iron for your hair isnt easy. Many desire straight, sleek and shiny hair that looks salon perfect. But to get that look, you need to put some thought into the subject and then do your research. There are many top rated and popular flat irons to choose from. Each different brand has its pros and cons, its admirers and deriders, and its function and lack of function. Some leading brands of flat iron are well known: Sedu flat irons, Solia flat irons and Corioliss flat irons. Whilst other brands are not so well known: Conair flat irons and GHD flat irons. To choose a flat iron that works best for you needs a little research.
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.
Next, lets take a look at the wattage power. Basically, the more watts, the more heat and the quicker the flat iron will heat up. Both the Andis and Hot Tools flat iron come with around 170 watts; the Maxiglide has 200 watts and heats up to 428F in seconds. Also, the Maxiglide hair straightener with steam has full control over its heat settings compared to only 3 fixed setting with the Hot Tools steam hair straightener. The overall look and feel of the Maxiglide flat iron is also better than either the Hot Tools or Andis flat irons. Greater attention to detail has gone into the design. The handle of the Maxiglide hair straightener has been ergonomically designed, with rounded edges, to make it easy to use. Also, the position of the on/off switch has been positioned that that it is easy to switch on and off when you want, but without turning it off by accident.
Both CHI and FHI flat irons remain a popular choice as hair straighteners. Both offer similar plate widths, flash heat for quick heat-up time and are lightweight. But is the CHI Farouk Turbo flat iron better than the FHI Heat Technique Professional flash iron or do FHI flat irons outperform CHI flat irons? FHI and CHI flat irons are similar in many respects. They offer pretty much the same plate widths; the CHI Farouk Turbo flat iron comes with .7", 1" and 2" plates, whereas FHI flat irons come with 1", 1 ¼" and 1 ¾" plates. Also, both CHI and FHI flat irons come with flash heating, so that the plates are hot and ready to use within seconds. And both flat irons come with one years warranty. However, there are some key differences between the CHI flat iron and the FHI flat iron.
