You might have started seeing these Flat Irons on Facebook, IG, and Amazon. I thought I would get ahead of the trend here and test these out for your consideration to purchase one. I picked up the Furiden Steam Hair Straightner from Amazon. It retails for roughly $50 and claims to save you time and keep your hair moisturized while straightening. In general the idea of a steam flat irons is interesting, but they do have many limitations as you will see in my comparison video.
Comparison to Standard:
Overall, the idea of a steam flat iron seems pointless, at least for my hair type. In the video listed above we tested it out on my fine/thin hair and on Macy’s thick/dry hair. Maybe these types of flat irons would work better on someone with ethnic or very coarse hair. The sounds the straightener was making would make my hairstylist cringe. It sounded as if it was burning the hair and the results were sub par.
Overall, I would recommend a standard flat iron in a similar price range that does a fantastic job like the Conair Infiniti Pro flat iron.
