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.
When it comes to weight the Sedu wins out over the Solia flat iron. The Sedu 1" tourmaline flat iron is 0.5lbs whereas the Solia 1 ¼" tourmaline flat iron weighs in at 1.2lbs. Weight does make a difference because when straightening your hair the flat iron you use will start to feel heavier and heavier. You may not be too interested in what the flat iron looks like but f you are the Solia tourmaline flat iron looks far more stylish that the Sedu. The Solia has a better more contoured design than does the Sedu. The above are minor differences and neither Sedu nor Solia come out on top. However there are two further reasons why the Solia Ceramic Ion Flat iron comes out the clear winner: the Dynamic Alignment System used by Solia flat iron and its price.
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.
