Nume Fashionista has been my favourite flat iron since I got my Nume Curl Jam set, to see my review, click here (below are links and coupon codes to get discounts). Other than it is a very good flat iron, it is very convenient coming in set with the 3 barrel curling wand. Now, I put a very good flat iron to the test, head to head with the Nume Fashionista to see if I am going to have a new favourite. I have been trying the Avanti Wet to Dry Nano-Titanium Ceramic Digital Flat Iron (that was a mouthful!) to the test. I must say, I am falling in love with this one. This is actually my first titanium hair tool so I was a little scared. Not sure if the titanium technology will fry my hair, but it claims to:
preserve more moisture within the hair shaft, eliminate frizz and close the cuticle to create smooth and shiny hair and it causes less damage to the hair cuticle during styling.
Also, there is this new FIR (Far Infrared Rays) that is invisible to the naked eye but is capable of penetrating to the human body, including the hair shaft. It therefore dries the hair from the inside out. The result is that more moisture remains in the hair shaft and there is less damage to the hair.
This Avanti flat iron retails for $259.99 and currently on sale at Flatironexperts.com for $100.04! (comes in a flat iron box, limited one year warranty, made in Korea)
I used the Avanti to both myself and my model. My model’s hair is really coarse and dry from bad colouring so it now needs a lot of tlc. She wanted to try to use the titanium-ceramic technology found in the Avanti to see if it will bring life back to her hair after styling. Photos below, be the judge 🙂
AFTER USING THE AVANTI WET TO DRY ON DAMP HAIR:
WITH FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY AFTER USING THE AVANTI WET TO DRY:
I think both flat irons are equally great. The Avanti Wet to Dry is designed for women on the go. If you have very little time to style your hair and you want to start styling it damp, this is the better choice. If you want a flat iron that can double up as a great curler / waiver, I will definitely go for the Nume Fashionista since this iron has a more rounder edges that can be used to achieve rounder and looser curls. So both flatirons are winners to me! There is no distinct or better one but I will however use these two flatirons alternately since both are of great quality.Where to get the flatirons: Avanti Wet to Dry: Flatironexperts.com on sale for $100.04 saving you $159.95!
