The latest technical leap forward in hair straightening is without doubt wet to dry flat irons. Gone are the days where you have to first blow dry your hair perfectly dry before you then straighten it. Wet to Dry flat irons arent a gimmick either; there is a real advantage by straightening your hair when its still wet. Straightening your hair damages it to some degree. By using a top rated flat iron you lessen the damage done and if used correctly the damage is negligible. However most flat irons require that your hair is first dry - perfectly dry. Blow drying hair also damages hair therefore straightening hair used to have the double-whammy of heat damage first with blow drying followed by straightening with flat irons.
Youre arguing with yourself whether youll wear that blazing crimson-red top or keep it simple and wear a more subdued color tonight. Then you notice a few rebellious strings of hair trying to escape from the clutches of your hair-spray. So you whip out your ceramic flat iron from your purse set it to max heat and try to flatten it all away. And then the smell of charred hair wafts across the room. Its a nightmare every woman dreads when using a hair iron: burning your hair. Actually its not only burnt hair that a misused hair iron will cause: theres clumping stickiness broken hair dead hair split ends and hair fall. These are just some of the consequences that a misused iron will bring to its woeful owner.
Conversely if you have long or coarse hair then youre best using a wider plate. The company claims that the ceramic used in the plates of their flat iron are made from NASA tested ceramic - though Im not quite sure what this actually means. What follows are the pros and cons of the Farouk CHI Turbo flat iron. CHI flat irons come with a 10 foot swivel cord. This may seem like a minor point but many other flat irons come with only 8 feet of cord - and not all are swivel cords. Having that extra couple of feet can make using the CHI flat iron really easy especially when reaching behind to straightening hair at the back.
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.
