Laure. Flat Iron. January 13th , 2018.
Ceramic flat Irons are hair straighteners which use ceramic heaters, on either side of the clamp, which is mixed with materials like titanium and tourmaline to boost the output. Most ceramic flat irons are made with aluminum or titanium coated with ceramic layers. More the ceramic layers, more flexible it is to use according to the need and style and more precise to choose the temperatures. But such Flat Irons might damage the hair if the ceramic layer is worn out.
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.
Tourmaline plates also protect color and retards fading by sealing in color molecules and allows the color to last up to 2 weeks longer. Not only does the FHI Heat technique Professional beat the CHI Farouk on straightening power, it also costs less. In fact, FHI flat irons are considerably cheaper than CHI flat irons. Well, it all depends on your needs and what you want from your flat iron. If you want a well designed, well-built flat iron, then the CHI Farouk flat iron is for you. But, if you want a tourmaline flat iron, then the FHI is the recommended choice. Finally, you should consider price. FHI flat irons are cheaper than CHI flat irons. If youre on a budget or dont want to spend a lot on a quality flat iron, the FHI is the one. Both the CHI and FHI flat iron are top rated flat irons. Just decide what you want and how much you want to spend.
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.
