Is A Sedu Flat Iron Any Good?

by Robin OBrien

If you buy a Sedu flat iron you'll be buying one of the most popular on the market. They're mid-priced, come with solid ceramic plates and with adjustable temperature control. But, are they a match for some of their competitors' recent models? The answer is that some are while others aren't.

Let's get one thing straight (pardon the pun); A Sedu is one of the best flat irons available. They've received many hairstyling awards and many professionals use them. However, they aren't the only hair straightener that has received hair awards and is loved by professional stylers. And, many brands newer models now come with features that make straightening hair easier and make hair stay straighter for longer.

A Sedu is often compared to a CHI flat iron with many preferring one or other for the results they get. However, with the new range of CHI flat irons, Sedu may find its market share slipping. Let's take a look at each model available and see how it rates.

The Sedu Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron (1") has been on the market for some time and remains a big seller. It has solid ceramic plates that are coated with tourmaline crystal - tourmaline emits 6 times more negative ion that does ceramic (negative ions seal the cuticle and retain the hair's moisture causing less heat damage and make hair straighter for longer). It's also light, weighing only 0.9 lbs. and is a low wattage appliance, using only 72 watts, so it's cheaper to run. It now retails for around $75, so its price is pretty competitive for a good quality styling tool.

There is also a 1 1/2" plate version, which features exactly the same features but retails for a higher price of around $100.

Comparing both of these models with the original CHI flat iron we find that the Sedu models are cheaper, which is a real plus point. The CHIs are also heavier although they do heat up quicker, come with longer power chords and use only 35 watts. However, what really makes the Sedu the better iron is that it features variable heat control, whereas the CHI is fixed at 385F. If you're thinking of buying either of the two tools, you should definitely choose the Sedu.

The Sedu Revolution Nano Tourmaline Hair Styler is new. It comes with 1" plates, weighs only 0.65lbs, adjustable temperature control between 180F - 450F (120C - 230C), and fast heat up time. It also comes with something called a Freestyle Guiding System that prevents hair from slipping out at the end of the tool's plates. The plates also have a curved edge that helps prevent snagging and allows hair to be curled as well as straightened. Its price tag is around $130 and it's a very good hair styler.

But it looks rather old fashioned when compared to the new CHI Nano Ceramic Digital 1" flat iron. This tool uses something called Nano Silver Technology. This eliminates bacteria on the tool, creating a germ-free environment every time you use it - you're going to see this featured more and more on newer flat irons; the Corioliss also uses this technology. Just like its competitor the plates have curved edges. It is more expensive, retailing for around $140.

The CHI Nano Ceramic is the best flat iron of the two and I would recommend you spend the extra on buying it.

If you want to spend around $70 -$80, the Sedu flat iron is a great tool for the price, but if you really want the best, then opt for the CHI Nano flat iron.
