Frieda Bartlett Flat Iron January 07th, 2018 - 18:53:54
Youre arguing with yourself whether youll wear that blazing crimson-red top, or keep it simple and wear a more subdued color tonight. Then you notice a few rebellious strings of hair trying to escape from the clutches of your hair-spray. So you whip out your ceramic flat iron from your purse, set it to max heat, and try to flatten it all away. And then the smell of charred hair wafts across the room. Its a nightmare every woman dreads when using a hair iron: burning your hair. Actually, its not only burnt hair that a misused hair iron will cause: theres clumping, stickiness, broken hair, dead hair, split ends and hair fall. These are just some of the consequences that a misused iron will bring to its woeful owner.
The cheapest model on offer is the ConairPro Plimatic Trix Stix Series flat iron. First off, lets list is good points. It comes with 1" plates: a plate width many people feel comfortable using. Its smaller in size than many other flat irons, has a swivel cord and comes with dual voltage for worldwide use making it an ideal travel flat iron. The tips of the plates remain cool and the plates are ultra-slim making it great for shaping, flipping, lifting and smoothing short to medium hairstyles. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron does have some draw back. The Trix Stix uses gold colored metal plates and not ceramic. You wouldnt expect tourmaline in a flat iron as cheap as this but, in this day an age, you expect ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are smooth so dont tangle hair as much as metal and ceramic also emits negative ions to help keep hair straight. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron is fine for those with short/medium manageable hair or a as a travel flat iron but if your hair is thick or curly youll want to use a different flat iron.
When it comes to weight the Sedu wins out over the Solia flat iron. The Sedu 1" tourmaline flat iron is 0.5lbs whereas the Solia 1 ¼" tourmaline flat iron weighs in at 1.2lbs. Weight does make a difference because when straightening your hair the flat iron you use will start to feel heavier and heavier. You may not be too interested in what the flat iron looks like, but f you are, the Solia tourmaline flat iron looks far more stylish that the Sedu. The Solia has a better, more contoured design, than does the Sedu. The above are minor differences and neither Sedu nor Solia come out on top. However there are two further reasons why the Solia Ceramic Ion Flat iron comes out the clear winner: the Dynamic Alignment System used by Solia flat iron and its price.
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.
