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.
The cheapest model on offer is the ConairPro Plimatic Trix Stix Series flat iron. First off lets list is good points. It comes with 1" plates: a plate width many people feel comfortable using. Its smaller in size than many other flat irons has a swivel cord and comes with dual voltage for worldwide use making it an ideal travel flat iron. The tips of the plates remain cool and the plates are ultra-slim making it great for shaping flipping lifting and smoothing short to medium hairstyles. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron does have some draw back. The Trix Stix uses gold colored metal plates and not ceramic. You wouldnt expect tourmaline in a flat iron as cheap as this but in this day an age you expect ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are smooth so dont tangle hair as much as metal and ceramic also emits negative ions to help keep hair straight. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron is fine for those with short/medium manageable hair or a as a travel flat iron but if your hair is thick or curly youll want to use a different flat iron.
This type of flat iron causes very less breakage and brittleness to your hair. Therefore your hair gets the most protection while styling with this tourmaline flat-iron. When the tourmaline and ceramic flat-irons are compared usually there are no vast differences between them but some evident differences are: When considering the fact of protecting your hair from damages caused by heat the tourmaline flat-iron is considered to be better than ceramic. This is because the tourmaline flat-irons produce more negative ions than the ceramic tools. The negative ions protect hair cuticle and lock the natural moisture thereby causing less adverse effect to your hair. The locking of natural moisture also prevents static electricity tangles and knots. Further the negative ions have the capacity to reduce the undesirable effects caused due to the positive ions. The negative ions help your hair to look very smooth and silky. To get a healthy looking hair many professionals nowadays opt for tourmaline flat-irons. The additional advantage of using the tourmaline flat-irons for styling your hair is you would be taking considerably very less period of time - about 25 seconds - while the ceramic flat-irons take more time. Thus the damage it causes to your hair is very less. Moreover you need not worry about the cost as it is available at an affordable price.
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.
