Recent FHI flat iron review has raved about the hype about their flat iron line called the FHIs Platform Series. This line comes in 8 versatile irons ranging from 4/10" to 1 3/4", plus a special domed iron for curls and waves. The highlights of these flat irons are the PTFC heater that provides quick heat up, heat recovery and heat distribution, the 3 layers of baked ceramics which provides durability and resistance to scratching and peeling, self-adjusting plates that reduce tension on hands and wrist for an easier grip, adjustable temperature dial that offers a wide operating temperature from 140 F to 450 F for all types of hair, extra long swivel cord for greater movement without cord tangling, and lastly the ergonomic handling designed for easy use.
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.
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.
The Dynamic Alignment System used in the Ion ceramic plates of a Solia flat iron is self-adjusting, which helps to provide perfect contact between hair and plate. This means that hot spots are avoided that can cause damage to hair. The Dynamic Alignment System also works as a pressure equalizer that helps avoid any specific pressure points during the straightening process, thereby allowing the Solia flat iron to work through the hair smoothly without pulling. Theres no avoiding the price differential between a Solia and Sedu flat iron. A Solia tourmaline flat iron is about three-quarters the cost of its comparable Sedu flat iron. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron are quality products and are amongst the best flat irons you can buy. But quality flat irons arent cheap and the consumer wants value for money, so the price difference between the two brands make the Solia Professional Ion Ceramic flat iron a clear winner.
