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.
Youre arguing with yourself whether youll wear that blazing crimson-red top, or keep it simple and wear a more subdued color tonight. Then you notice a few rebellious strings of hair trying to escape from the clutches of your hair-spray. So you whip out your ceramic flat iron from your purse, set it to max heat, and try to flatten it all away. And then the smell of charred hair wafts across the room. Its a nightmare every woman dreads when using a hair iron: burning your hair. Actually, its not only burnt hair that a misused hair iron will cause: theres clumping, stickiness, broken hair, dead hair, split ends and hair fall. These are just some of the consequences that a misused iron will bring to its woeful owner.
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.
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.
