What is the Best Flat Iron?

It seems like every day there’s some brand new, groundbreaking hair tool that promises to revolutionize your hair routine and give you the hair of your dreams. While there is no such thing as a “perfect hair tool”, it is true that our hair tool technology continues to get better and better with each passing year. Of all the categories of hair tools out there, perhaps the one that has seen the most continued growth and technological advancement is the trusty old flat iron.

The flat iron, also known as a hair straightener, is a mainstay of countless hair care aficionados out there. While this tool is excellent at straightening and smoothing out the hair strand, it can also double as a powerful curling tool for creating natural, long-lasting curls and waves in just about any hair type. The flat iron is extremely effective due to its construction, which applies direct heat evenly across the hair strand for an extended period of time. However, this same effective construction can also cause a great deal of damage to the hair strand if a poor quality tool is being used, as this extended direct heat can very easily cause damage and breakage while tearing down the cuticle layer.

Thankfully, we’re here to guide you towards the best flat iron tools out there to avoid damaging your hair while creating long-lasting, quality results for optimal hair health.

A flat iron that utilizes ionic technology
Ionic technology is a groundbreaking way of allowing you to dry and heat your hair without causing any excess moisture loss and dryness. This works by having your flat iron emit negative ions which counteract the positive ions from your hair follicle. By doing this, you help to reduce the time it takes for your hair strand to dry while preventing any dryness and hair damage. One high quality flat iron that makes use of this powerful ionic technology is Sutra’s Magno Turbo Flat Iron, which combines ionic technology with a digital control panel for a high end flat iron for any hair type!

A flat iron that utilizes infrared heat technology
You’ve likely heard about infrared heat technology in the news, and for good reason.  Infrared heat technology applies heat to the hair strand from the inside out, which allows for the hair to be heated and styled while causing minimal damage to the outer cuticle layer.  Not only does this help make the drying process safer and gentler, but it also allows you to dry and style the hair quicker than normal.  Sutra’s IR2 Infrared Flat Iron is a best-selling flat iron that harnesses the power of infrared heat for exceptional results!

A ceramic flat iron for even heating
When buying a flat iron, you want to pay extra attention to the material used in the construction of the flat iron.  Because flat irons utilize heat for the styling process, you’ll want to choose a flat iron that uses a heat conductive material for even, gentle heating.  Ceramic makes for an excellent choice, as it helps to evenly and gently apply heat directly to the hair strand.  A perfect option is Sutra’s Ceramic Flat Iron, which quickly and evenly applies heat for frizz free results!
