Many complain that their flat iron doesnt really straighten their hair and if it does their hair doesnt stay straight. One or two manufacturers now produce steam flat irons. Maxiglide make a steam flat iron that is one of the best. When ironing creased up clothes it often helps to use steam to flatten out the wrinkles. The same principle applies when straightening hair. Thin or soft hair is easy to straighten but those who have thick or coarse hair using a conventional flat iron just doesnt straighten hair. Some of the best manufacturers of flat irons are now making steam flat irons. Leading brands include the Maxiglide steam flat iron the Hot Tools steam flat iron and the Andis ceramic steam flat iron. All of these flat irons produce bursts of steam to help straighten even the most stubborn hair. And all three produce great results and are excellent value for money.
Recent FHI flat iron review has raved about the hype about their flat iron line called the FHIs Platform Series. This line comes in 8 versatile irons ranging from 4/10" to 1 3/4" plus a special domed iron for curls and waves. The highlights of these flat irons are the PTFC heater that provides quick heat up heat recovery and heat distribution the 3 layers of baked ceramics which provides durability and resistance to scratching and peeling self-adjusting plates that reduce tension on hands and wrist for an easier grip adjustable temperature dial that offers a wide operating temperature from 140 F to 450 F for all types of hair extra long swivel cord for greater movement without cord tangling and lastly the ergonomic handling designed for easy use.
In my opinion the build quality and design of the CHI flat iron is superior to that that of the FHI flat iron. The handle on the CHI is more ergonomically designed and feels better in your hand; this is an important consideration if you will be using a flat iron a lot of the time and it makes straightening hair a lot easier and more pleasant. Both brands of flat iron come with swivel cords so you dont get tangled up but the CHI cord is longer than that of the FHI flat iron. Again this is a plus point as a longer cord makes using a hair straightener easier; especially when straightening your hair at the back.
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.
