Deciding what steam hair straightener is best is a subjective decision. But for the following reasons the Maxiglide steam iron slightly comes out ahead of the other two mentioned above. The plates widths of the Andis steam iron are 2 inches and the plate widths of the Hot Tools hair straightener is a generous 3 inches but the Maxiglide steam hair straightener is 4 inches wide. When using steam to straighten hair a generous width helps straighten more sections of hair at a time thus decreasing the time it takes and makes the Maxiglide flat iron a versatile styling tool. Also the plates of the Maxiglide steam flat iron come with detangling pins which helps to tease out tangles and helps reduce the amount of time spent to produce straight shiny smooth hair.
Despite being expensive it is beneficial to use pure ceramic Iron provided it is handled carefully. Invisible Infrared rays are used in all ceramic flat irons that employ far infrared heating. Nano materials like Nano silver to inhibit bacterial growth Nano titanium for even heat distribution in hair and Nano titanium oxide to inhibit chemical reactions are added to the ceramic layer. Tourmaline is also added to boost negative ion output to produce smooth and sleek hair styles.
All three wet to dry flat irons are excellent but the T3 Tourmaline is by far the best. Mainly this is because the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry uses crushed Tourmaline on its plates. Tourmaline is a precious stone - a type of silica - that naturally produces negative ions. Tourmaline produces at least 6 times more negative ions than does ceramic. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. This provides ultimate shine color and moisture protection for hair. Negative ions also eliminate static electricity on the hair surface so hair is left silky and frizz-free! Its a real shame about the cost of the T3 Wet to Dry flat iron - perhaps its cost will decrease when it has more competition from other manufacturers.
Both CHI and FHI flat irons remain a popular choice as hair straighteners. 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.
