The CHI flat iron also uses less power, which saves you money in the long run and is good for the environment. The CHI Turbo flat iron uses only 20 - 25 watts whereas the FHI Heat Technique uses 58 watts. All CHI Farouk Turbo use ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are used in flat irons because the smoothing surface is incredibly flat thus helping reducing tangling and knots. Ceramic plates also produce negative ions that are important as these lock in moisture, prevent frizziness and keep your hair straighter for longer. But ceramic plates have now been surpassed by ceramic plates that are infused with tourmaline. CHI flat irons dont have tourmaline plates but the FHI Heat Technique Professional Ceramic flat iron does. Tourmaline plates produce up to 20 times more negative ions than ceramic plates.
All of FHI flat irons are of top of the line and you are guaranteed it is done is good quality. FHI flat iron uses a state of the art technology called tourmaline technology. Tourmaline is a type of crystal that has the property of producing lots of negative ions. These negative ions emitted by FHI flat irons, are vital components in locking hair moisture and sealing the hair follicle resulting to a shinier and frizzy free hair. 20 more times negative ions are produced by tourmaline as compared to ceramic plates commonly used by other flat iron products. Their multi-functional flat iron works well with all types of hair from straight, curly or wavy. Its versatility just doesnt stop at straightening and curling, you can also create many diverse and different hairstyles that you prefer. With a simple snap you can do the trick. They are also known for their easy and cost effective methods of operation. You will never regret using this since it is a very good investment that could last for years; definitely worth every penny.
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.
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.
