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.
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 Dynamic Alignment System used in the Ion ceramic plates of a Solia flat iron is self-adjusting, which helps to provide perfect contact between hair and plate. This means that hot spots are avoided that can cause damage to hair. The Dynamic Alignment System also works as a pressure equalizer that helps avoid any specific pressure points during the straightening process, thereby allowing the Solia flat iron to work through the hair smoothly without pulling. Theres no avoiding the price differential between a Solia and Sedu flat iron. A Solia tourmaline flat iron is about three-quarters the cost of its comparable Sedu flat iron. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron are quality products and are amongst the best flat irons you can buy. But quality flat irons arent cheap and the consumer wants value for money, so the price difference between the two brands make the Solia Professional Ion Ceramic flat iron a clear winner.
The Maxiglide MX-597 One Step Hair Straightening Iron is cheaper than the Corioliss and it also comes with steam burst technology. This Maxiglide flat iron comes with two sets of ceramic plates; the first set is the usual smooth ceramic plates found on most flat irons, and the second set of plates has small teeth like a comb, which help to detangle hair and brush it as the same time. Maxiglide claim that, just as you use bursts of steam when ironing out creases in your clothes, so too you use steam to straighten out stubborn curly hair. This sounds great but there are some minus points with the Maxiglide wet to dry flat iron. First off, the appliance has a water reservoir for the steam, which means that the unit is a little heaver and bulky making it difficult for some to use. Also, the plates are 4 inches wide making it a little unwieldy. Finally, some have complained that the detangling pins of the ceramic plates, far from helping to straighten hair, but actually make the task harder to accomplish. But despite these complaints, many find the Maxiglide MX-597 One Step flat iron an excellent hair straightener.
