Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with tourmaline plates. If youre going to buy a flat iron you must buy a model with tourmaline plates. Basically, tourmaline gives off negative ions, which have been shown to lock in moisture into the hair follicle and help to straighten hair without excessive heat damage. Both Sedu and Solia are American-designed flat irons, though both are actually manufactured in the Far East. Both come with 1-year warranties. Both have quick heat-up times of less than 30 seconds. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with variable settings. However, the Solia just nudges ahead because its heat setting ranges from 140F - 450F, whereas the Sedu flat iron has a slightly narrow range: 240F - 410F.
This type of flat iron causes very less breakage and brittleness to your hair. Therefore your hair gets the most protection while styling with this tourmaline flat-iron. When the tourmaline and ceramic flat-irons are compared, usually there are no vast differences between them but some evident differences are: When considering the fact of protecting your hair from damages caused by heat, the tourmaline flat-iron is considered to be better than ceramic. This is because the tourmaline flat-irons produce more negative ions than the ceramic tools. The negative ions protect hair cuticle and lock the natural moisture thereby causing less adverse effect to your hair. The locking of natural moisture also prevents static electricity, tangles and knots. Further, the negative ions have the capacity to reduce the undesirable effects caused due to the positive ions. The negative ions help your hair to look very smooth and silky. To get a healthy looking hair, many professionals nowadays opt for tourmaline flat-irons. The additional advantage of using the tourmaline flat-irons for styling your hair is you would be taking considerably very less period of time - about 25 seconds - while the ceramic flat-irons take more time. Thus the damage it causes to your hair is very less. Moreover, you need not worry about the cost as it is available at an affordable price.
This means that the plates are hotter and also quicker to heat up. The Conair Ceramic Heat comes with 25 temperature settings so fine tuning the correct temperature for your hair is not a problem. Strangely, the Conair Ceramic does not come with dual voltage so its not a good travelling flat iron. In conclusion, Conair flat irons are a good cheap flat iron. They dont come with tourmaline plates, they arent the best looking flat iron or the most ergonomically designed. But they are hard to beat on price. Unless you want a travel flat iron or want the cheapest flat iron you can buy, I would recommend you spend a little more and buy the Conair Ceramic Heat flat iron.
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.
