Ofelia Clemons Flat Iron July 30th, 2018 - 10:26:17
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 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.
First off is its weight. As you might expect with a flat iron with 4 inch plates it isnt light; it weighs in at over 12 lbs! So even with an ergonomically designed handle the Maxiglide steam flat iron will be too heavy or unwieldy for some to use comfortably. Some complain that the special steam channels on the plates tend to clog up unless you meticulously clean it after use. Whilst this is a fair point it is probably true for all steam flat irons. Without doubt the biggest drawback of the Maxiglide steam flat iron is its price. You can expect to pay nearly twice what you would pay for either the Andis of Hot Tools flat iron. This is a major consideration. You have to ask yourself whether its benefits are justified by its price. The Maxiglide is a very popular flat iron. Other manufacturers have started making steam burst flat irons but the Maxiglide remains the best steam flat iron on the market but do your own homework and then decide which one is best for you. One final thing about the Maxiglide steam iron which gives it the edge over the Hot Tools or Andis flat iron: you can buy the Maxiglide Hair Straightener Value Pack and amongst other things you get a DVD showing you exactly how to use the steam 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.
