This means that the plates are hotter and also quicker to heat up. The Conair Ceramic Heat comes with 25 temperature settings so fine tuning the correct temperature for your hair is not a problem. Strangely the Conair Ceramic does not come with dual voltage so its not a good travelling flat iron. In conclusion Conair flat irons are a good cheap flat iron. They dont come with tourmaline plates they arent the best looking flat iron or the most ergonomically designed. But they are hard to beat on price. Unless you want a travel flat iron or want the cheapest flat iron you can buy I would recommend you spend a little more and buy the Conair Ceramic Heat 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.
All three wet to dry flat irons are excellent but the T3 Tourmaline is by far the best. Mainly this is because the T3 Tourmaline Wet-to-Dry uses crushed Tourmaline on its plates. Tourmaline is a precious stone - a type of silica - that naturally produces negative ions. Tourmaline produces at least 6 times more negative ions than does ceramic. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth silky hair surface and seal in the hairs natural moisture. This provides ultimate shine color and moisture protection for hair. Negative ions also eliminate static electricity on the hair surface so hair is left silky and frizz-free! Its a real shame about the cost of the T3 Wet to Dry flat iron - perhaps its cost will decrease when it has more competition from other manufacturers.
Next lets take a look at the wattage power. Basically the more watts the more heat and the quicker the flat iron will heat up. Both the Andis and Hot Tools flat iron come with around 170 watts; the Maxiglide has 200 watts and heats up to 428F in seconds. Also the Maxiglide hair straightener with steam has full control over its heat settings compared to only 3 fixed setting with the Hot Tools steam hair straightener. The overall look and feel of the Maxiglide flat iron is also better than either the Hot Tools or Andis flat irons. Greater attention to detail has gone into the design. The handle of the Maxiglide hair straightener has been ergonomically designed with rounded edges to make it easy to use. Also the position of the on/off switch has been positioned that that it is easy to switch on and off when you want but without turning it off by accident.
