Sedu flat irons are about 50% more expensive than Solia flat irons. Sedu flat irons have gained popularity because of their association with Jennifer Aniston. Many want to have the same look and believe that using a Sedu tourmaline flat iron will give them this. Whilst this is true perfectly straight shiny sleek hair can be obtained using other brands of flat iron. But there is no doubt that a tourmaline flat iron from Sedu is a top rated product and delivers on its promise of creating smooth straight hair. Although the heat up time of the Sedu Ionic Ceramic flat iron is not as quick as some other brands it is still ready to use in only 25 seconds. The plate widths of Sedu flat irons are either 1 or 1 ½ inches. The body of the Sedu flat iron is made from high-strength composite materials which makes the Sedu one of the lightest flat irons on the market.
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.
In my opinion the build quality and design of the CHI flat iron is superior to that that of the FHI flat iron. 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.
First off is its weight. As you might expect with a flat iron with 4 inch plates it isnt light; it weighs in at over 12 lbs! So even with an ergonomically designed handle the Maxiglide steam flat iron will be too heavy or unwieldy for some to use comfortably. Some complain that the special steam channels on the plates tend to clog up unless you meticulously clean it after use. Whilst this is a fair point it is probably true for all steam flat irons. Without doubt the biggest drawback of the Maxiglide steam flat iron is its price. You can expect to pay nearly twice what you would pay for either the Andis of Hot Tools flat iron. This is a major consideration. You have to ask yourself whether its benefits are justified by its price. The Maxiglide is a very popular flat iron. Other manufacturers have started making steam burst flat irons but the Maxiglide remains the best steam flat iron on the market but do your own homework and then decide which one is best for you. One final thing about the Maxiglide steam iron which gives it the edge over the Hot Tools or Andis flat iron: you can buy the Maxiglide Hair Straightener Value Pack and amongst other things you get a DVD showing you exactly how to use the steam iron.
