Only introduced onto the market in 2004 the T3 Duality professional flat iron has gained a strong foothold in the market and is now one of the leading hair straighteners. The first thing you notice about the T3 Tourmaline Medium Duality flat iron is its good looks but the qualities of the T3 flat iron go further than how it looks. T3 tourmaline flat irons use the latest technology to give you perfectly straight hair. There are four models to choose from: the T3 Domed Duality Flat Iron (3/4 inch); the T3 Medium Duality Flat Iron (1 3/8 inch); the T3 Narrow Duality Flat Iron (1 inch); and the T3 Wide Duality Flat Iron (1 3/4 inch). The T3 domed iron is a versatile tool to straighten curl and even create chic flips to the hair. When curling the grooves on the outer ends allow for more control and when locked in between the hair is actually being heated on the inside as well as the outside. The T3 Narrow Duality is the one that gives you most control the T3 Wide Duality is best for long hair whereas the T3 Medium Duality is the most versatile. Finally there is also available the T3 Wet to Dry Flat Iron. Just like the Solia model discussed above the T3 Wet to Dry Tourmaline flat iron can be used on damp hair so avoiding having to first dry your hair.
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.
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 Corioliss Limited Edition Pink flat iron is rather iconic. It is basically the same model as the Corioliss Professional. As you might expect the Corioliss Pink flat iron comes with tourmaline 1" plates. Dont think that despite its colour it isnt really a professional styling tool; it is and it is used extensively by professional hairstylists. Pink is good but if youre looking for the new pink then the Corioliss Purple flat iron is for you. It has 1" tourmaline plates heats up in 6 seconds and all the features of the Pro Silver flat iron. Corioliss flat irons remain a very popular hair straightener. Corioliss flat irons can match the styling performance of other leading makes like Sedu or GHD flat irons. They look stylish use the latest technology and most importantly straighten hair to a perfect sleek and shiny finish.
