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.
Are you advised to use ceramic or tourmaline-flat-iron instead of the old metal or copper plated flat-iron? And now you are confused of which of the material - ceramic or tourmaline - is better. In the past the metal or copper plated flat-irons are the only type of flat-irons available. Now the flat irons are made from ceramic and the most recently tourmaline is used for manufacturing. Tourmaline is a mineral compound which is ground into a fine powder and integrated with ceramic. After this it is flattened and shaped to create tourmaline flat-irons. The best flat iron makes use of tourmaline material that is combined with the ceramic material. The tourmaline-flat-iron is actually the combination of tourmaline and ceramic.

The ConairPro Plimatic flat iron is a step up from the Trix Stix. Like the Trix Stix the Conair Plimatic has gold plates - a major minus. The rest of the features of the Plimatic are pretty much the same as the Trix Stix. The only major difference is that the plates are 2" wide. Conair promote this flat iron by saying it heats up in less than 60 seconds but other manufacturers flat irons can heat up in a tenth of this time. If you really want to get serious about straightening your hair with a Conair flat iron you really have to go with either the 1" or 2 ½" Conair Ceramic Heat flat iron. These are much more powerful flat irons with 200 watts of power compared to only 32 watts with either the Trix Stix of Plimatic.
