The Maxiglide MX-597 One Step Hair Straightening Iron is cheaper than the Corioliss and it also comes with steam burst technology. This Maxiglide flat iron comes with two sets of ceramic plates; the first set is the usual smooth ceramic plates found on most flat irons and the second set of plates has small teeth like a comb which help to detangle hair and brush it as the same time. Maxiglide claim that just as you use bursts of steam when ironing out creases in your clothes so too you use steam to straighten out stubborn curly hair. This sounds great but there are some minus points with the Maxiglide wet to dry flat iron. First off the appliance has a water reservoir for the steam which means that the unit is a little heaver and bulky making it difficult for some to use. Also the plates are 4 inches wide making it a little unwieldy. Finally some have complained that the detangling pins of the ceramic plates far from helping to straighten hair but actually make the task harder to accomplish. But despite these complaints many find the Maxiglide MX-597 One Step flat iron an excellent hair straightener.
The Corioliss Pro Silver flat iron is nearly twice the price of the Solia making it one of the most expensive tourmaline flat irons you can buy but its worth every penny. Its good looks are consummate with its performance. Heat up time is only 6 seconds! The plate size is 1" and the plates reach a top temperature of 430F - higher than that of many flat irons. Sedu claim to make one of the lightest flat irons - the Sedu 1" flat iron weighing in at 0.9lbs - however the Corioliss Pro Silver 1" flat iron weighs only 0.72lbs making it very easy to use especially when straightening the back of your hair. The iconic Corioliss Limited Edition Pink 1" flat iron is for those who want something a little special. And if youre looking for something extra special take a look at the Corioliss Pro-Hair Purple Flat Iron. Finally Corioliss flat irons come with dual-voltage as standard so you can use a Corioliss hair straightener anywhere in the world.
Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with tourmaline plates. If youre going to buy a flat iron you must buy a model with tourmaline plates. Basically tourmaline gives off negative ions which have been shown to lock in moisture into the hair follicle and help to straighten hair without excessive heat damage. Both Sedu and Solia are American-designed flat irons though both are actually manufactured in the Far East. Both come with 1-year warranties. Both have quick heat-up times of less than 30 seconds. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with variable settings. However the Solia just nudges ahead because its heat setting ranges from 140F - 450F whereas the Sedu flat iron has a slightly narrow range: 240F - 410F.
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.
