Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with tourmaline plates. If youre going to buy a flat iron you must buy a model with tourmaline plates. Basically tourmaline gives off negative ions which have been shown to lock in moisture into the hair follicle and help to straighten hair without excessive heat damage. Both Sedu and Solia are American-designed flat irons though both are actually manufactured in the Far East. Both come with 1-year warranties. Both have quick heat-up times of less than 30 seconds. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with variable settings. However the Solia just nudges ahead because its heat setting ranges from 140F - 450F whereas the Sedu flat iron has a slightly narrow range: 240F - 410F.
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.
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.
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.
