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.
The Maxiglide MX-597 One Step Hair Straightening Iron is cheaper than the Corioliss and it also comes with steam burst technology. This Maxiglide flat iron comes with two sets of ceramic plates; the first set is the usual smooth ceramic plates found on most flat irons and the second set of plates has small teeth like a comb which help to detangle hair and brush it as the same time. Maxiglide claim that just as you use bursts of steam when ironing out creases in your clothes so too you use steam to straighten out stubborn curly hair. This sounds great but there are some minus points with the Maxiglide wet to dry flat iron. First off the appliance has a water reservoir for the steam which means that the unit is a little heaver and bulky making it difficult for some to use. Also the plates are 4 inches wide making it a little unwieldy. Finally some have complained that the detangling pins of the ceramic plates far from helping to straighten hair but actually make the task harder to accomplish. But despite these complaints many find the Maxiglide MX-597 One Step flat iron an excellent hair straightener.
The Remington Wet 2 Straight flat iron is the cheapest of the three wet to dry flat iron. Its cheapness probably reflects the lack of features offered by the other two but the Remington flat iron is excellent value for money. Unlike the Maxiglide the Remington Wet 2 Straight does not come with steam and but like the Maxiglide it also doesnt have tourmaline plates like the Corioliss wet to dry flat iron. The Remington flat iron does come with dual voltage so you can use it all over the world. Also it comes with a generous 2-year warranty: both Maxiglide and Corioliss offer only a one year warranty. In conclusion if youre looking for a cheap wet to dry flat iron then the Remington Wet 2 Straight flat iron is an excellent product. If you have hair that just doesnt seem to straighten - and youve used other flat irons - you could give the steam burst flat iron from Maxiglide a try. If money is no problem and you want the best wet to dry flat iron then the Corioliss Tourmaline Ceramic Wet to Dry Flat Iron is the one to go for.
