However, there are also irons that are made of ceramic and velvet. Irons that are covered with velvet are said to be ideal for women who have hair that breaks easily. On the other hand, irons that are made of ceramic are designed to give moisture while curling the hair. Essentially, an iron that has metal barrel is great for any hair and is also considered to be the most economical. Last but not least, you have to check the cord of the iron. This is very important since the cord is the one that connects the iron. If you want to have a curling iron with long-lasting quality, you must select the hair curling iron that is connected through swivel cord. This kind of cord has the ability to minimize the pressure to the internal wires because it will only move when you move about.

We have moved on from the metal rods heated by insertion into hot coals or heating on gas or electric stoves. With no control of the heat of the iron there must have been many cases of singed hair, not to mention burnt fingers and scalps! Modern day styles demand more control and flexibility of hair style with hair looking loose rather than "glued into place". Electrically heated and electronically controlled irons and tongs are now available. The barrels come in varying sizes enabling a tight curl or loose falling curl finish. Some have a smooth easy-glide ceramic barrel to create a super smooth finish and you can also purchase drop curl hair tongs with a cone shaped tong to create loose, tumbling waves and tousled curls. The fluctuation in hair styles from curly to straight and back again means manufacturers will continue to dream up new innovations to attract both professional hair stylists and the consumer.

Both offer similar plate widths, flash heat for quick heat-up time and are lightweight. But is the CHI Farouk Turbo flat iron better than the FHI Heat Technique Professional flash iron or do FHI flat irons outperform CHI flat irons? FHI and CHI flat irons are similar in many respects. They offer pretty much the same plate widths; the CHI Farouk Turbo flat iron comes with .7", 1" and 2" plates, whereas FHI flat irons come with 1", 1 ¼" and 1 ¾" plates. Also, both CHI and FHI flat irons come with flash heating, so that the plates are hot and ready to use within seconds. And both flat irons come with one years warranty. However, there are some key differences between the CHI flat iron and the FHI flat iron.

Gone are the days where you have to first blow dry your hair perfectly dry before you then straighten it. Wet to Dry flat irons arent a gimmick either; there is a real advantage by straightening your hair when its still wet. Straightening your hair damages it to some degree. By using a top rated flat iron, you lessen the damage done, and if used correctly, the damage is negligible. However, most flat irons require that your hair is first dry - perfectly dry. Blow drying hair also damages hair, therefore straightening hair used to have the double-whammy of heat damage, first with blow drying followed by straightening with flat irons.

This line comes in 8 versatile irons ranging from 4/10" to 1 3/4", plus a special domed iron for curls and waves. The highlights of these flat irons are the PTFC heater that provides quick heat up, heat recovery and heat distribution, the 3 layers of baked ceramics which provides durability and resistance to scratching and peeling, self-adjusting plates that reduce tension on hands and wrist for an easier grip, adjustable temperature dial that offers a wide operating temperature from 140 F to 450 F for all types of hair, extra long swivel cord for greater movement without cord tangling, and lastly the ergonomic handling designed for easy use.

Although they are advertised as Wet-to-Dry flat irons, they are not meant to be used on soaking wet hair; Hair should first be dried a little with a towel: Damp-to-Dry would be amore appropriate, though less catchy term. Also, Wet-to-Dry flat irons can also be used on dry hair, just as you would do with traditional flat irons. Whichever Wet-to-Dry flat iron you choose, you can rest assured that Wet to Dry flat irons are here to stay and will become more popular. If youve never heard of wet to dry flat irons, go online and read the many reviews. In conclusion, they have two major advantages over traditional hair strengtheners: you damage your hair less by avoiding having to blow dry it first and it takes less time to straighten your hair.

The handle on the CHI is more ergonomically designed and feels better in your hand; this is an important consideration if you will be using a flat iron a lot of the time and it makes straightening hair a lot easier and more pleasant. Both brands of flat iron come with swivel cords so you dont get tangled up but the CHI cord is longer than that of the FHI flat iron. Again, this is a plus point, as a longer cord makes using a hair straightener easier; especially when straightening your hair at the back.

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.

Ceramic flat Irons are hair straighteners which use ceramic heaters, on either side of the clamp, which is mixed with materials like titanium and tourmaline to boost the output. Most ceramic flat irons are made with aluminum or titanium coated with ceramic layers. More the ceramic layers, more flexible it is to use according to the need and style and more precise to choose the temperatures. But such Flat Irons might damage the hair if the ceramic layer is worn out.
