Commonly priced anywhere from $50 to $150, cordless flat irons serve the same purpose as corded models but provide more mobility when using them. Rather than have a long cord to maneuver around in the bathroom and that gets tangled up, cordless flat irons come with a charging base and are equipped with a rechargeable battery. After a day of sitting on its base, the flat iron is ready to go again in the morning. Brands including Conair, Remingtom and Metropolis, just to name a few, offer a variety of cordless flat iron models.
Flat Iron Purpose
A flat iron is used to straighten hair. Useful on all hair types, from light and silky to thick and coarse, curly- and wavy-haired people sometimes want a straight hair look. Flat irons use a high temperature generated by a heating element contained within ceramic plates to condition hair into straightening. It's only temporary, so those who always want straight hair will have to make a routine out of using their flat iron.
Besides its rechargeable lithium battery and separate power base, cordless flat irons are compact and lightweight. Adjustable plates allow for perfect contact between them and hair, resulting in silkier, smoother hair without frizz. Other features include variable temperature control and instant heat recovery when there isn't a lot of time in the morning.
