There have been man innovations in flat iron technology; ceramic plates, tourmaline plates and flash heating. The latest innovation is wet to dry flat irons. Wet to dry flat irons are becoming more and more popular because they avoid the need to first blow-dry your hair and produce straighter, shinier hair for those with particularly curly of difficult to manage hair. Applying any heat to your hair damages it. Therefore when you first blow-dry your hair and then use a flat iron to straighten it, youre subjecting your hair to high temperatures not once but twice! You can apply hair serums to your hair to help protect the damage of heat, but if you use a flat iron often you can cause your hair follicles to dry out, which in turn causes frizziness and split-ends.
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. If you really want to get serious about straightening your hair with a Conair flat iron you really have to go with either the 1" or 2 ½" Conair Ceramic Heat flat iron. These are much more powerful flat irons with 200 watts of power compared to only 32 watts with either the Trix Stix of Plimatic.
Tourmaline is a precious crystal that is ground down into a fine powder and then infused onto the ceramic plates of a flat iron. Tourmaline plates produce a far greater number of negative ions than do ceramic plates. Negative ions straighten your hair for far longer and give it a silkier, shinier look. So, if youre thinking of buying a flat iron you should only buy a flat iron with plates that have been plated with tourmaline. But which is the best tourmaline flat iron? Surprisingly, the vast majority of producers still make ceramic only flat irons. However, the market leaders in flat iron design and manufacturing now produce tourmaline flat irons. The following are market leaders in tourmaline flat iron technology, and all make top rated tourmaline flat irons. Which tourmaline flat iron is best depends on your hair type, what function you want and how much youre willing to spend.
The Remington Wet 2 Straight flat iron is the cheapest of the three wet to dry flat iron. Its cheapness probably reflects the lack of features offered by the other two, but the Remington flat iron is excellent value for money. Unlike the Maxiglide, the Remington Wet 2 Straight does not come with steam and but, like the Maxiglide, it also doesnt have tourmaline plates like the Corioliss wet to dry flat iron. The Remington flat iron does come with dual voltage, so you can use it all over the world. Also it comes with a generous 2-year warranty: both Maxiglide and Corioliss offer only a one year warranty. In conclusion, if youre looking for a cheap wet to dry flat iron, then the Remington Wet 2 Straight flat iron is an excellent product. If you have hair that just doesnt seem to straighten - and youve used other flat irons - you could give the steam burst flat iron from Maxiglide a try. If money is no problem and you want the best wet to dry flat iron, then the Corioliss Tourmaline Ceramic Wet to Dry Flat Iron is the one to go for.
