    hair straighteners?

    Advertisements
    Which hair straighteners would you recommend, other than Chi? Definitely something not that expensive. I'm thinking maybe Remington? I've read good reviews on their products.

    If you take some time to save $$, I suggest Paul Mitchell. It's the kind I've used FOREVER now, and they have a year warranty on them. (yes, more expensive, but so worth it).

    You're welcome.

    I just use regualer ole walmart straighteners. Right now I use a $20.00 1" Remington and it works just as good as any $125.00 straightener, IMO. I just don't see the point in spending too much money when I can buy the same thing without the brand name on it for a fifth of the price

    be cool.

    I have the instyler. Once you learn how to use it, it works just as well as any other straightener. plus, it's less damaging.

    That's kinda' what I was thinking... I have a plain ol' hair straightener from Target right now, but it seriously SUCKS. I just don't get what the differences really are between any of them

    I used to use that same Remington one. It's just the quality. Also, Paul Mitchell is made to be less damaging, as well as working as a curling iron too (you just have to twirl your hair around it- it has curved edges).

    You're welcome.

    I had my first one for about 3 years though. The cord shorted out before the warranty was up, so I got a brand new one.

    Just bought my second one in the summer, 'cause I stepped on my old one- Oops!

    You're welcome.

    That's cool! How are flat irons damaing/less damaging though? Is that in the heat settings? Do the heat settings even really matter?

    I thought having ceramic plates was better for your hair,not sure about the brand.
