Sedu and Solia flat irons are two of the most popular brands. They share many similar features, incorporate the latest technology and are top rated flat irons loved by consumers the world over. But are there any differences? And which is the best flat iron: Sedu or Solia? Before we compare the Solia flat iron with that of the Sedu flat iron, well first list off some of the main features shared by both. Sedu flat irons come with two different plate widths: 1-½ and 1 inch. Solia flat irons come with four different plate widths but its 1-¾ and 1-¼ inch models are its most popular and as these roughly match the plate sizes of the Sedu, so well compare these models against Sedu.
All three wet to dry flat irons are excellent but the T3 Tourmaline is by far the best. Mainly this is because the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry uses crushed Tourmaline on its plates. Tourmaline is a precious stone - a type of silica - that naturally produces negative ions. Tourmaline produces at least 6 times more negative ions than does ceramic. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. This provides ultimate shine, color and moisture protection for hair. Negative ions also eliminate static electricity on the hair surface so hair is left silky and frizz-free! Its a real shame about the cost of the T3 Wet to Dry flat iron - perhaps its cost will decrease when it has more competition from other manufacturers.
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!
The other main features of the Corioliss Pro Silver flat iron are that it heats up in only 6 seconds; has adjustable heat temperature from 140F to 430F; comes with a 9 foot swivel flex, so using it is easy - especially when straightening the back of your hair. Oh, and I mustnt forget to mention, that the Pro Silver flat iron has dual voltage, so you can use it anywhere in the world. Some manufacturers of flat irons have started making wet to dry flat irons: Corioliss is one of them. The Corioliss Tourmaline Wet to Dry flat iron is designed for use on damp hair. Manufacturers have begun to realize the benefits of wet to dry flat irons; theres no need to first blow-dry hair perfectly dry before using a flat iron, so less heat damage is inflicted on hair. Just like the Corioliss Pro Silver, the Corioliss Wet to Dry heats up to 430F that is fully adjustable. The plates are wider at 1.75 inches and come with strategically positioned vent holes to allow steam to evaporate. The Corioliss Wet/Dry flat iron is excellent, however there is one small criticism I have; the wet to dry iron only comes with a 7 foot swivel cord. This is a little on the mean side and can make using it a little awkward if the power socket isnt near to hand; both the WIGO and Gold N Hot wet to dry flat irons come with 9 foot swivel cords.
