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.
Manufacturers have realised that first drying your hair before using a flat iron to straighten it puts your hair at twice the risk from heat damage. The answer has been the development of wet to dry flat irons. Using a wet to dry flat iron doesnt eliminate heat damage but it means you can avoid the high temperatures involved in blow-drying your hair. The follow is a review of three of the best wet to dry flat irons on the market today. Corioliss Tourmaline Ceramic Wet to Dry Flat Iron comes highly recommended. This flat iron from Corioliss comes with 1.75" tourmaline plates. Tourmaline plates produce many times the number of negative ions than do ordinary ceramic plates. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. Corioliss wet to dry hair straighteners also come with a Ceramic Far Infrared Heating System.
Next lets take a look at the wattage power. Basically the more watts the more heat and the quicker the flat iron will heat up. Both the Andis and Hot Tools flat iron come with around 170 watts; the Maxiglide has 200 watts and heats up to 428F in seconds. Also the Maxiglide hair straightener with steam has full control over its heat settings compared to only 3 fixed setting with the Hot Tools steam hair straightener. The overall look and feel of the Maxiglide flat iron is also better than either the Hot Tools or Andis flat irons. Greater attention to detail has gone into the design. The handle of the Maxiglide hair straightener has been ergonomically designed with rounded edges to make it easy to use. Also the position of the on/off switch has been positioned that that it is easy to switch on and off when you want but without turning it off by accident.
CHI flat irons are a very popular choice of hair straightener. The Farouk CHI flat iron was the first to have ceramic plates making it a best seller. But are todays CHI flat irons any good or have they been eclipsed by other brands of flat iron? You can still buy the original CHI ceramic flat iron. Its the cheapest model in the CHI range and falls into the medium priced category for flat irons. It comes with 1" ceramic plates heats in seconds and is still a very good hair styling tool. But if youre thinking of buying a CHI flat iron then you might be best to buy a Farouk CHI Turbo flat iron. CHI Turbo flat irons come in 3 different plates sizes; 0.75" 1" and 2". Choosing what size is best for you depends on your type of hair. Generally the shorter or thinner your hair the narrower the plate size.
