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.
Tourmaline is a precious crystal that is ground down into a fine powder and then infused onto the ceramic plates of a flat iron. Tourmaline plates produce a far greater number of negative ions than do ceramic plates. Negative ions straighten your hair for far longer and give it a silkier, shinier look. So, if youre thinking of buying a flat iron you should only buy a flat iron with plates that have been plated with tourmaline. But which is the best tourmaline flat iron? Surprisingly, the vast majority of producers still make ceramic only flat irons. However, the market leaders in flat iron design and manufacturing now produce tourmaline flat irons. The following are market leaders in tourmaline flat iron technology, and all make top rated tourmaline flat irons. Which tourmaline flat iron is best depends on your hair type, what function you want and how much youre willing to spend.
Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with tourmaline plates. If youre going to buy a flat iron you must buy a model with tourmaline plates. Basically, tourmaline gives off negative ions, which have been shown to lock in moisture into the hair follicle and help to straighten hair without excessive heat damage. Both Sedu and Solia are American-designed flat irons, though both are actually manufactured in the Far East. Both come with 1-year warranties. Both have quick heat-up times of less than 30 seconds. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with variable settings. However, the Solia just nudges ahead because its heat setting ranges from 140F - 450F, whereas the Sedu flat iron has a slightly narrow range: 240F - 410F.
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.
