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.
Many complain that their flat iron doesnt really straighten their hair, and if it does, their hair doesnt stay straight. One or two manufacturers now produce steam flat irons. Maxiglide make a steam flat iron that is one of the best. When ironing creased up clothes, it often helps to use steam to flatten out the wrinkles. The same principle applies when straightening hair. Thin or soft hair is easy to straighten but those who have thick or coarse hair, using a conventional flat iron just doesnt straighten hair. Some of the best manufacturers of flat irons are now making steam flat irons. Leading brands include the Maxiglide steam flat iron, the Hot Tools steam flat iron and the Andis ceramic steam flat iron. All of these flat irons produce bursts of steam to help straighten even the most stubborn hair. And, all three produce great results and are excellent value for money.
Sedu and Solia flat irons are two of the most popular brands. They share many similar features, incorporate the latest technology and are top rated flat irons loved by consumers the world over. But are there any differences? And which is the best flat iron: Sedu or Solia? Before we compare the Solia flat iron with that of the Sedu flat iron, well first list off some of the main features shared by both. Sedu flat irons come with two different plate widths: 1-½ and 1 inch. Solia flat irons come with four different plate widths but its 1-¾ and 1-¼ inch models are its most popular and as these roughly match the plate sizes of the Sedu, so well compare these models against Sedu.
All three wet to dry flat irons are excellent but the T3 Tourmaline is by far the best. Mainly this is because the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry uses crushed Tourmaline on its plates. Tourmaline is a precious stone - a type of silica - that naturally produces negative ions. Tourmaline produces at least 6 times more negative ions than does ceramic. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. This provides ultimate shine, color and moisture protection for hair. Negative ions also eliminate static electricity on the hair surface so hair is left silky and frizz-free! Its a real shame about the cost of the T3 Wet to Dry flat iron - perhaps its cost will decrease when it has more competition from other manufacturers.
