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.
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.
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.
