It comes in various vibrant and cool colors and also in various sizes according to the persons kind and volume of hair. It is highly efficient, safe and quicker than the hot combs or heated rods. They are used to style hair to make them straight, curly, straight pony, bun, up sweep etc. Thermal Protectors are used to protect hair from harsh effects of high temperature.
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.
Many complain that their flat iron doesnt really straighten their hair, and if it does, their hair doesnt stay straight. One or two manufacturers now produce steam flat irons. Maxiglide make a steam flat iron that is one of the best. When ironing creased up clothes, it often helps to use steam to flatten out the wrinkles. The same principle applies when straightening hair. Thin or soft hair is easy to straighten but those who have thick or coarse hair, using a conventional flat iron just doesnt straighten hair. Some of the best manufacturers of flat irons are now making steam flat irons. Leading brands include the Maxiglide steam flat iron, the Hot Tools steam flat iron and the Andis ceramic steam flat iron. All of these flat irons produce bursts of steam to help straighten even the most stubborn hair. And, all three produce great results and are excellent value for money.
The latest technical leap forward in hair straightening is, without doubt, wet to dry flat irons. Gone are the days where you have to first blow dry your hair perfectly dry before you then straighten it. Wet to Dry flat irons arent a gimmick either; there is a real advantage by straightening your hair when its still wet. Straightening your hair damages it to some degree. By using a top rated flat iron, you lessen the damage done, and if used correctly, the damage is negligible. However, most flat irons require that your hair is first dry - perfectly dry. Blow drying hair also damages hair, therefore straightening hair used to have the double-whammy of heat damage, first with blow drying followed by straightening with flat irons.
