There have been man innovations in flat iron technology; ceramic plates tourmaline plates and flash heating. The latest innovation is wet to dry flat irons. Wet to dry flat irons are becoming more and more popular because they avoid the need to first blow-dry your hair and produce straighter shinier hair for those with particularly curly of difficult to manage hair. Applying any heat to your hair damages it. Therefore when you first blow-dry your hair and then use a flat iron to straighten it youre subjecting your hair to high temperatures not once but twice! You can apply hair serums to your hair to help protect the damage of heat but if you use a flat iron often you can cause your hair follicles to dry out which in turn causes frizziness and split-ends.
Many complain that their flat iron doesnt really straighten their hair and if it does their hair doesnt stay straight. One or two manufacturers now produce steam flat irons. Maxiglide make a steam flat iron that is one of the best. When ironing creased up clothes it often helps to use steam to flatten out the wrinkles. The same principle applies when straightening hair. Thin or soft hair is easy to straighten but those who have thick or coarse hair using a conventional flat iron just doesnt straighten hair. Some of the best manufacturers of flat irons are now making steam flat irons. Leading brands include the Maxiglide steam flat iron the Hot Tools steam flat iron and the Andis ceramic steam flat iron. All of these flat irons produce bursts of steam to help straighten even the most stubborn hair. And all three produce great results and are excellent value for money.
The other main features of the Corioliss Pro Silver flat iron are that it heats up in only 6 seconds; has adjustable heat temperature from 140F to 430F; comes with a 9 foot swivel flex so using it is easy - especially when straightening the back of your hair. Oh and I mustnt forget to mention that the Pro Silver flat iron has dual voltage so you can use it anywhere in the world. Some manufacturers of flat irons have started making wet to dry flat irons: Corioliss is one of them. The Corioliss Tourmaline Wet to Dry flat iron is designed for use on damp hair. Manufacturers have begun to realize the benefits of wet to dry flat irons; theres no need to first blow-dry hair perfectly dry before using a flat iron so less heat damage is inflicted on hair. Just like the Corioliss Pro Silver the Corioliss Wet to Dry heats up to 430F that is fully adjustable. The plates are wider at 1.75 inches and come with strategically positioned vent holes to allow steam to evaporate. The Corioliss Wet/Dry flat iron is excellent however there is one small criticism I have; the wet to dry iron only comes with a 7 foot swivel cord. This is a little on the mean side and can make using it a little awkward if the power socket isnt near to hand; both the WIGO and Gold N Hot wet to dry flat irons come with 9 foot swivel cords.
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.
