Next, lets take a look at the wattage power. Basically, the more watts, the more heat and the quicker the flat iron will heat up. Both the Andis and Hot Tools flat iron come with around 170 watts; the Maxiglide has 200 watts and heats up to 428F in seconds. Also, the Maxiglide hair straightener with steam has full control over its heat settings compared to only 3 fixed setting with the Hot Tools steam hair straightener. The overall look and feel of the Maxiglide flat iron is also better than either the Hot Tools or Andis flat irons. Greater attention to detail has gone into the design. The handle of the Maxiglide hair straightener has been ergonomically designed, with rounded edges, to make it easy to use. Also, the position of the on/off switch has been positioned that that it is easy to switch on and off when you want, but without turning it off by accident.
Deciding what steam hair straightener is best is a subjective decision. But, for the following reasons, the Maxiglide steam iron slightly comes out ahead of the other two mentioned above. The plates widths of the Andis steam iron are 2 inches and the plate widths of the Hot Tools hair straightener is a generous 3 inches, but the Maxiglide steam hair straightener is 4 inches wide. When using steam to straighten hair, a generous width helps straighten more sections of hair at a time, thus decreasing the time it takes, and makes the Maxiglide flat iron a versatile styling tool. Also, the plates of the Maxiglide steam flat iron come with detangling pins, which helps to tease out tangles and helps reduce the amount of time spent to produce straight, shiny, smooth hair.
By far the best way of deciding which flat iron is best for your hair, is by talking to friends. Find out what flat iron works best for them and why. Talking to friends and family about flat irons costs you nothing and youll get great real advice and not the sales pitch of a company sales department. Next, go and get reviews of flat irons off the internet and hair magazines. Again, this can be got for free. There are many reviews posted online from real people with their frank experiences and opinions on just about every flat iron on the market. Talk to professional hair stylists. After all, stylists use flat irons more than anyone else.
Are you advised to use ceramic or tourmaline-flat-iron instead of the old metal or copper plated flat-iron? And now you are confused of which of the material - ceramic or tourmaline - is better. In the past, the metal or copper plated flat-irons are the only type of flat-irons available. Now the flat irons are made from ceramic and the most recently tourmaline is used for manufacturing. Tourmaline is a mineral compound which is ground into a fine powder and integrated with ceramic. After this, it is flattened and shaped to create tourmaline flat-irons. The best flat iron makes use of tourmaline material that is combined with the ceramic material. The tourmaline-flat-iron is actually the combination of tourmaline and ceramic.
To lessen damage to hair caused by heat, some flat iron manufacturers have developed Wet to Dry flat irons. This type of flat iron avoids blow drying hair and so lessens heat damage. Some of the top rated Wet to Dry flat irons are: the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry flat iron, the Wigo Wet-to-Dry flat iron and the Remington Wet to Dry flat iron. The Remington Wet to Dry flat iron is the cheapest of these, followed by the Wigo Wet to Dry flat iron. The T3 Tourmaline Wet to Dry is the most expensive; at 3 times the cost of the Remington and 2 times the cost of the Wigo!
