Conversely, if you have long or coarse hair, then youre best using a wider plate. The company claims that the ceramic used in the plates of their flat iron are made from NASA tested ceramic - though Im not quite sure what this actually means. What follows are the pros and cons of the Farouk CHI Turbo flat iron. CHI flat irons come with a 10 foot swivel cord. This may seem like a minor point, but many other flat irons come with only 8 feet of cord - and not all are swivel cords. Having that extra couple of feet can make using the CHI flat iron really easy, especially when reaching behind to straightening hair at the back.
The Dynamic Alignment System used in the Ion ceramic plates of a Solia flat iron is self-adjusting, which helps to provide perfect contact between hair and plate. This means that hot spots are avoided that can cause damage to hair. The Dynamic Alignment System also works as a pressure equalizer that helps avoid any specific pressure points during the straightening process, thereby allowing the Solia flat iron to work through the hair smoothly without pulling. Theres no avoiding the price differential between a Solia and Sedu flat iron. A Solia tourmaline flat iron is about three-quarters the cost of its comparable Sedu flat iron. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron are quality products and are amongst the best flat irons you can buy. But quality flat irons arent cheap and the consumer wants value for money, so the price difference between the two brands make the Solia Professional Ion Ceramic flat iron a clear winner.
First off, is its weight. As you might expect with a flat iron with 4 inch plates, it isnt light; it weighs in at over 12 lbs! So, even with an ergonomically designed handle, the Maxiglide steam flat iron will be too heavy or unwieldy for some to use comfortably. Some complain that the special steam channels on the plates tend to clog up unless you meticulously clean it after use. Whilst this is a fair point, it is probably true for all steam flat irons. Without doubt, the biggest drawback of the Maxiglide steam flat iron is its price. You can expect to pay nearly twice what you would pay for either the Andis of Hot Tools flat iron. This is a major consideration. You have to ask yourself whether its benefits are justified by its price. The Maxiglide is a very popular flat iron. Other manufacturers have started making steam burst flat irons but the Maxiglide remains the best steam flat iron on the market but do your own homework and then decide which one is best for you. One final thing about the Maxiglide steam iron, which gives it the edge over the Hot Tools or Andis flat iron: you can buy the Maxiglide Hair Straightener Value Pack and, amongst other things, you get a DVD showing you exactly how to use the steam iron.
All three wet to dry flat irons are excellent but the T3 Tourmaline is by far the best. Mainly this is because the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry uses crushed Tourmaline on its plates. Tourmaline is a precious stone - a type of silica - that naturally produces negative ions. Tourmaline produces at least 6 times more negative ions than does ceramic. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. This provides ultimate shine, color and moisture protection for hair. Negative ions also eliminate static electricity on the hair surface so hair is left silky and frizz-free! Its a real shame about the cost of the T3 Wet to Dry flat iron - perhaps its cost will decrease when it has more competition from other manufacturers.
