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.
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.
In my opinion, the build quality and design of the CHI flat iron is superior to that that of the FHI flat iron. The handle on the CHI is more ergonomically designed and feels better in your hand; this is an important consideration if you will be using a flat iron a lot of the time and it makes straightening hair a lot easier and more pleasant. Both brands of flat iron come with swivel cords so you dont get tangled up but the CHI cord is longer than that of the FHI flat iron. Again, this is a plus point, as a longer cord makes using a hair straightener easier; especially when straightening your hair at the back.
I have one major criticism of CHI flat irons: they dont use Tourmaline plates. Many manufacturers are now infusing Tourmaline on to the ceramic plates. Ceramic plates emit negative ions, but Tourmaline emits 6 times more. Negative ions are important as they help to close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. Negative ions greatly reduce frizziness. Tourmaline is the next technical advanced in hair straightening. Why CHI hasnt yet used this material is hard to say. And, CHI flat irons arent cheap; for the same money you can buy a tourmaline flat iron from a competitor like the T3 Tourmaline flat iron. So, is the Farouk CHI flat iron any good? The answer is yes. The CHI is a top rated flat iron with many excellent reviews from consumers and professionals alike. One final point: you can buy the CHI Farouk Pink Flat Iron and Hair Dryer Set with matching case. For every set that is bought, CHI donates a portion of the products sales to support the effort for finding a cure for breast cancer.
