Using flat irons to create smooth, silky and straight hair is becoming more and more popular. But as the popularity of flat irons increases, so does their price. Conair fills the niche of a cheap flat iron for those who cant afford or dont want to pay the over-inflated prices of some brands. But does a cheap Conair flat iron really straighten hair? Conair offer 4 main models of flat irons. Each one is made for a specific use and the price of each type reflects the functions and features on offer. What follows is a review about the pros and cons of Conair flat irons. Of course, like all reviews, they are subjective and some may disagree with the conclusions reached.
Although they are advertised as Wet-to-Dry flat irons, they are not meant to be used on soaking wet hair; Hair should first be dried a little with a towel: Damp-to-Dry would be amore appropriate, though less catchy term. Also, Wet-to-Dry flat irons can also be used on dry hair, just as you would do with traditional flat irons. Whichever Wet-to-Dry flat iron you choose, you can rest assured that Wet to Dry flat irons are here to stay and will become more popular. If youve never heard of wet to dry flat irons, go online and read the many reviews. In conclusion, they have two major advantages over traditional hair strengtheners: you damage your hair less by avoiding having to blow dry it first and it takes less time to straighten your hair.
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.
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.
