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.
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.
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.
