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.
There have been man innovations in flat iron technology; ceramic plates tourmaline plates and flash heating. The latest innovation is wet to dry flat irons. Wet to dry flat irons are becoming more and more popular because they avoid the need to first blow-dry your hair and produce straighter shinier hair for those with particularly curly of difficult to manage hair. Applying any heat to your hair damages it. Therefore when you first blow-dry your hair and then use a flat iron to straighten it youre subjecting your hair to high temperatures not once but twice! You can apply hair serums to your hair to help protect the damage of heat but if you use a flat iron often you can cause your hair follicles to dry out which in turn causes frizziness and split-ends.
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.
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.
