This type of flat iron causes very less breakage and brittleness to your hair. Therefore your hair gets the most protection while styling with this tourmaline flat-iron. When the tourmaline and ceramic flat-irons are compared, usually there are no vast differences between them but some evident differences are: When considering the fact of protecting your hair from damages caused by heat, the tourmaline flat-iron is considered to be better than ceramic. This is because the tourmaline flat-irons produce more negative ions than the ceramic tools. The negative ions protect hair cuticle and lock the natural moisture thereby causing less adverse effect to your hair. The locking of natural moisture also prevents static electricity, tangles and knots. Further, the negative ions have the capacity to reduce the undesirable effects caused due to the positive ions. The negative ions help your hair to look very smooth and silky. To get a healthy looking hair, many professionals nowadays opt for tourmaline flat-irons. The additional advantage of using the tourmaline flat-irons for styling your hair is you would be taking considerably very less period of time - about 25 seconds - while the ceramic flat-irons take more time. Thus the damage it causes to your hair is very less. Moreover, you need not worry about the cost as it is available at an affordable price.
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.
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.
First off, is its weight. As you might expect with a flat iron with 4 inch plates, it isnt light; it weighs in at over 12 lbs! So, even with an ergonomically designed handle, the Maxiglide steam flat iron will be too heavy or unwieldy for some to use comfortably. Some complain that the special steam channels on the plates tend to clog up unless you meticulously clean it after use. Whilst this is a fair point, it is probably true for all steam flat irons. Without doubt, the biggest drawback of the Maxiglide steam flat iron is its price. You can expect to pay nearly twice what you would pay for either the Andis of Hot Tools flat iron. This is a major consideration. You have to ask yourself whether its benefits are justified by its price. The Maxiglide is a very popular flat iron. Other manufacturers have started making steam burst flat irons but the Maxiglide remains the best steam flat iron on the market but do your own homework and then decide which one is best for you. One final thing about the Maxiglide steam iron, which gives it the edge over the Hot Tools or Andis flat iron: you can buy the Maxiglide Hair Straightener Value Pack and, amongst other things, you get a DVD showing you exactly how to use the steam iron.
