Although they are advertised as Wet-to-Dry flat irons they are not meant to be used on soaking wet hair; Hair should first be dried a little with a towel: Damp-to-Dry would be amore appropriate though less catchy term. Also Wet-to-Dry flat irons can also be used on dry hair just as you would do with traditional flat irons. Whichever Wet-to-Dry flat iron you choose you can rest assured that Wet to Dry flat irons are here to stay and will become more popular. If youve never heard of wet to dry flat irons go online and read the many reviews. In conclusion they have two major advantages over traditional hair strengtheners: you damage your hair less by avoiding having to blow dry it first and it takes less time to straighten your hair.
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.
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.
Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with tourmaline plates. If youre going to buy a flat iron you must buy a model with tourmaline plates. Basically tourmaline gives off negative ions which have been shown to lock in moisture into the hair follicle and help to straighten hair without excessive heat damage. Both Sedu and Solia are American-designed flat irons though both are actually manufactured in the Far East. Both come with 1-year warranties. Both have quick heat-up times of less than 30 seconds. Both the Sedu and Solia flat iron come with variable settings. However the Solia just nudges ahead because its heat setting ranges from 140F - 450F whereas the Sedu flat iron has a slightly narrow range: 240F - 410F.
