One of the cheapest top-rated tourmaline flat irons is the Solia Tourmaline Ceramic Ion Flat Iron. The Solia tourmaline flat iron comes in four plate sizes; the 3/4"plate is perfect for bangs and really short hair and is also the perfect size for creating all sorts of curly-haired styles. Plate widths also include the 1" and 1 ¼" - the latter being the most popular size. These sizes are perfect for medium hair length or hair that isnt too curly. If you hair is difficult to straighten then you should definitely go for the 1 ¾" plates on the Solia tourmaline flat iron. Solia flat irons come with Dynamic Alignment System to ensure perfect contact between the plates and your hair. The Solia Limited Edition Pink flat iron is a very popular model however if youre looking to buy a pink flat iron the Corioliss pink flat iron is a better choice; it looks better and heats up quicker than does the Solia but it is a lot more expensive - more about Corioliss in a moment. Finally Solia claim that their tourmaline flat irons can be used on wet hair - actually damp hair that has been first combed through. This is a real plus point as using wet to dry flat irons avoid having to first use a hair dryer.
Ceramic flat Irons are hair straighteners which use ceramic heaters on either side of the clamp which is mixed with materials like titanium and tourmaline to boost the output. Most ceramic flat irons are made with aluminum or titanium coated with ceramic layers. More the ceramic layers more flexible it is to use according to the need and style and more precise to choose the temperatures. But such Flat Irons might damage the hair if the ceramic layer is worn out.
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 CHI flat iron also uses less power which saves you money in the long run and is good for the environment. The CHI Turbo flat iron uses only 20 - 25 watts whereas the FHI Heat Technique uses 58 watts. All CHI Farouk Turbo use ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are used in flat irons because the smoothing surface is incredibly flat thus helping reducing tangling and knots. Ceramic plates also produce negative ions that are important as these lock in moisture prevent frizziness and keep your hair straighter for longer. But ceramic plates have now been surpassed by ceramic plates that are infused with tourmaline. CHI flat irons dont have tourmaline plates but the FHI Heat Technique Professional Ceramic flat iron does. Tourmaline plates produce up to 20 times more negative ions than ceramic plates.
