Deciding on what is the best flat iron for your hair isnt easy. Many desire straight sleek and shiny hair that looks salon perfect. But to get that look you need to put some thought into the subject and then do your research. There are many top rated and popular flat irons to choose from. Each different brand has its pros and cons its admirers and deriders and its function and lack of function. Some leading brands of flat iron are well known: Sedu flat irons Solia flat irons and Corioliss flat irons. Whilst other brands are not so well known: Conair flat irons and GHD flat irons. To choose a flat iron that works best for you needs a little research.
Tourmaline is a precious crystal that is ground down into a fine powder and then infused onto the ceramic plates of a flat iron. Tourmaline plates produce a far greater number of negative ions than do ceramic plates. Negative ions straighten your hair for far longer and give it a silkier shinier look. So if youre thinking of buying a flat iron you should only buy a flat iron with plates that have been plated with tourmaline. But which is the best tourmaline flat iron? Surprisingly the vast majority of producers still make ceramic only flat irons. However the market leaders in flat iron design and manufacturing now produce tourmaline flat irons. The following are market leaders in tourmaline flat iron technology and all make top rated tourmaline flat irons. Which tourmaline flat iron is best depends on your hair type what function you want and how much youre willing to spend.
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.
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.
