The ConairPro Plimatic flat iron is a step up from the Trix Stix. Like the Trix Stix the Conair Plimatic has gold plates - a major minus. The rest of the features of the Plimatic are pretty much the same as the Trix Stix. The only major difference is that the plates are 2" wide. Conair promote this flat iron by saying it heats up in less than 60 seconds, but other manufacturers flat irons can heat up in a tenth of this time. If you really want to get serious about straightening your hair with a Conair flat iron you really have to go with either the 1" or 2 ½" Conair Ceramic Heat flat iron. These are much more powerful flat irons with 200 watts of power compared to only 32 watts with either the Trix Stix of Plimatic.
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.
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.
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.
