The CHI flat iron also uses less power, which saves you money in the long run and is good for the environment. The CHI Turbo flat iron uses only 20 - 25 watts whereas the FHI Heat Technique uses 58 watts. All CHI Farouk Turbo use ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are used in flat irons because the smoothing surface is incredibly flat thus helping reducing tangling and knots. Ceramic plates also produce negative ions that are important as these lock in moisture, prevent frizziness and keep your hair straighter for longer. But ceramic plates have now been surpassed by ceramic plates that are infused with tourmaline. CHI flat irons dont have tourmaline plates but the FHI Heat Technique Professional Ceramic flat iron does. Tourmaline plates produce up to 20 times more negative ions than ceramic plates.
Are you advised to use ceramic or tourmaline-flat-iron instead of the old metal or copper plated flat-iron? And now you are confused of which of the material - ceramic or tourmaline - is better. In the past, the metal or copper plated flat-irons are the only type of flat-irons available. Now the flat irons are made from ceramic and the most recently tourmaline is used for manufacturing. Tourmaline is a mineral compound which is ground into a fine powder and integrated with ceramic. After this, it is flattened and shaped to create tourmaline flat-irons. The best flat iron makes use of tourmaline material that is combined with the ceramic material. The tourmaline-flat-iron is actually the combination of tourmaline and ceramic.
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.
There have been man innovations in flat iron technology; ceramic plates, tourmaline plates and flash heating. The latest innovation is wet to dry flat irons. Wet to dry flat irons are becoming more and more popular because they avoid the need to first blow-dry your hair and produce straighter, shinier hair for those with particularly curly of difficult to manage hair. Applying any heat to your hair damages it. Therefore when you first blow-dry your hair and then use a flat iron to straighten it, youre subjecting your hair to high temperatures not once but twice! You can apply hair serums to your hair to help protect the damage of heat, but if you use a flat iron often you can cause your hair follicles to dry out, which in turn causes frizziness and split-ends.
