There is a extensive selection of Wigo flat iron; every little thing from ceramic or tourmaline plates, to damp or dry fashions. What follows are critiques of the present fashions and what every has to supply and, extra importantly, what it would not.
Wigo flat irons are made by Helen of Troy and are sometimes marketed below the latter title – the fashions are precisely the identical regardless of which model title you purchase. They’re low- to mid-price hair straighteners and there are a number of fashions to select from.
The Wigo Ceramic flat iron is available in three sizes; 1″, 1 3/4″, and a pair of 1/4″. Aside from plate measurement and value, all three have the identical options. These embrace ceramic plates, a separate heating system for every plate, 170 watts of energy, 12 warmth settings and 9 foot energy twine. All of them include a Three yr restricted guarantee. Costs begin at round $60 – $70.
The ceramic irons examine favorably to the Solia ceramic flat iron. They value about the identical, look the identical, and supply, roughly, the identical performance. The Wigo is probably somewhat superior; it comes with 170 watts of energy in comparison with Solia’s 70 watts. Nonetheless, it’s inferior to the Sedu vary of ceramic irons, however they’re almost twice the worth of the Wigo.
Tourmaline flat irons are superior to ceramic fashions. Tourmaline is a semi valuable stone that naturally emits one thing referred to as unfavourable irons – 6 instances greater than ceramic. Detrimental irons shut the cuticle layer which seals in moisture. This retains hair shinier, with much less static and frizz, and retains hair straighter for longer. Wigo have one tourmaline flat iron that comes with 1″ plates.
The arms of the iron are constructed from titanium making them each light-weight and clean. Ceramic plates are secured on the arms. Ceramic could be very clean, lengthy lasting and distributes warmth evenly. The ceramic plates have been infused with Tourmaline crystals to produces heaps of unfavourable irons.
The usage of titanium is sort of uncommon in hair straighteners however is to be welcomed because it makes them very gentle and fewer tiring to make use of. The Wigo Tourmaline flat iron weighs solely 0.5lbs – the Solia tourmaline flat iron weighs 1lb with the Sedu weighing 1.1lbs.
Wigo additionally make a wet-to-dry – or as they name it damp or dry – flat iron. It is not so good as both the Corioliss or T3 variations however it’s pretty much as good because the Remington and is best than the Maxiglide. With the primary of the opposite two irons, it is to be anticipated as they value extra and are higher constructed and include tourmaline plates, which the Wigo doesn’t. It is across the identical value because the Remington, which does not have tourmaline both. However, it is higher than the Maxiglide which is way heavier, prices extra and is simply plain tough to make use of. Once more, when it comes to worth for cash, it is a good purchase.
Lastly, we have now the Wigo 2-in-1 flat iron. With this mannequin you possibly can change the ceramic plates for both 1 half” or 5/8″. Fairly frankly, I do not see this as a helpful choice. I am unable to think about anybody altering the plates while utilizing it; you’d first have to show off the iron, await the plates to chill down earlier than you can take them off and alter them for the opposite set, after which have to attend 50 seconds for the brand new plates to heat up.
Of all of the Wigo flat iron fashions the one which stands out is the tourmaline model. It is lighter than most different manufacturers and could be very low cost; not costing far more than the ceramic variations. I simply want they made it with extra plate widths. Nonetheless, it is the mannequin I’d purchase.
