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.
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.
In my opinion the build quality and design of the CHI flat iron is superior to that that of the FHI flat iron. The handle on the CHI is more ergonomically designed and feels better in your hand; this is an important consideration if you will be using a flat iron a lot of the time and it makes straightening hair a lot easier and more pleasant. Both brands of flat iron come with swivel cords so you dont get tangled up but the CHI cord is longer than that of the FHI flat iron. Again this is a plus point as a longer cord makes using a hair straightener easier; especially when straightening your hair at the back.
To lessen damage to hair caused by heat some flat iron manufacturers have developed Wet to Dry flat irons. This type of flat iron avoids blow drying hair and so lessens heat damage. Some of the top rated Wet to Dry flat irons are: the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry flat iron the Wigo Wet-to-Dry flat iron and the Remington Wet to Dry flat iron. The Remington Wet to Dry flat iron is the cheapest of these followed by the Wigo Wet to Dry flat iron. The T3 Tourmaline Wet to Dry is the most expensive; at 3 times the cost of the Remington and 2 times the cost of the Wigo!
