Babyliss make excellent ones. Professional ones are the way to go, the Conair (and similar brands) are definately not as effective.

I agree with using pro ones. Solano makes a good range. I prefer the Sapphire.

I tried that stupid Conair one after in some magazine like cosmogirl or something said it was the best hair straightener.. i wanted a straightener to straighten the ends of my hair so it would be stick straight instead of having the ends curl in or out but that thing did nothing for my hair ends.. It didn't straighten the ends at all, it just made it flat and have a lot of static!! So then after wasting all that time i had to put my hair up into a ponytail cause the thing didn't work :mad:

i dont use any but from the ppl that i hear that doo have and use them they say this
that they damadge your hair and give u more split ends.. depends on which brand u buy, some of them even burn your rooots if you do it close to your scalp..
depends on your hair type.. some times if u them they . tend to make your hair go beyond control.. and u'll end up more stressed then starting with them

it is expensive but the best way to get your curls stright and natural lookin is going to a salon...

but if you want to use the irons or home methods get someone to do it on u the first few times cuz it is a hasle to do it infront of the mirror .. true u'll end up doing it on your own one day but have someone help u out with it

I have the Babyliss steam ones at home, but don't need to use them much as my hair is more or less straight anyway.
My hairdresser uses the ghd ceramic ones which are excellent & heat up in seconds. They are expensive to buy.

I think the Chi is the best. I have the thickest, most unruly wavy hair ever and it works miracles. Plus it doesnt dry it out like other irons i have had. And i use a heat protectant spray from joico that helps keep it healthy!

Revlon makes a great flatiron, and it's soooo cheap like $16.00 and it really works wonders..... It's as good at straightening my EXTREMELY curly hair as the one used by my hairdresser, Solano Sapphire something....
