Others need hardly any heat at all — fine or damaged hair should be good below 300 degrees. We didn’t want to pay a premium for ceramic if it was only a coating.
We knew we wanted to avoid plates with coatings in favor of solid ceramic or titanium because coatings can wear off — sometimes very quickly — exposing the metal underneath. This is where things in our story start to get juicy.
We set up shop one afternoon at Hairroin with Jarman and her staff to test out each iron. One woman had what Jarman calls “reverse texture” hair — aka kinky curls that had been lightened, making it prone to heat damage. Was it intuitive to turn on and change temperature? The best flat iron should be a well-designed beauty tool that aids in your regimen and doesn’t make it a chore.
Another model had slightly wavy, long, thick virgin hair. The T3 Single Pass Luxe flat iron for example was difficult to figure out.
Similarly, when we took a closer look at the Hot Tools Smart Touch Salon Flat Iron, it was identical to the other Hot Tools model, only we couldn’t see paying an extra for its Tinder-esque swipe controls.
You can truly do with your hair whatever you desire — straight or styled — in one pass.
The Bio Ionic One Pass Straightener was the only other iron that delivered consistent one-pass results from a ceramic plate.
Those little ions close the hair’s cuticles, working to smooth strands and cut frizz.
Titanium plates are a favorite of professional stylists and it’s not hard to understand why — they’re super smooth, heat up fast, and are lightweight.
