Top Ten Hair Straighteners

Thousands of hair straighteners in every shape and size can be overwhelming, so to make this important decision easier for you, we’ve narrowed down the list of countless straighteners to the top ten chosen by experienced users and infinite reviews. Starting with our well-deserved number one:

Karmin Titanium: Strong, durable and mirror smooth titanium plates will flawlessly flip, curl, wave or straighten hair while providing complete control over the temperature thanks to its variable heat settings (176-410°F). An extra-long swivel cord and regulated flash heating promise easy handling and efficient usage for everyone with any hair type. Additionally, a lightweight body and a long life span have made it a favorite among users, not to mention the accessible price and great 3 year warranty.

Karmin G3 Salon Pro: The purest tourmaline ceramic plates promise superior straightening while its ergonomic design offers a versatile device that is perfect for styling creatively. It comes with an extra-long, anti-tangling swivel cord and its dual voltage makes it a good buy for travelers. With its wide ranging adjustable temperatures (up to 450°F) it’s perfect for every hair type. Plus it comes with an instruction manual, a free carrying case and a 3 year warranty.

Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium: Durable and fast heating plates will straighten hair faster and thanks to its slim design this device is ideal for styling swiftly. A digital control, LED temperature settings and a hefty 4 year warranty make this straightener one of the most popular on the market. Weaknesses found by users include some snagging at the tip of the iron, slippery handles and the tendency to cook any hair product used before styling.

Hai Elite Convertible: Sapphire ceramic plates provide excellent heat distribution for evenly straightened hair in the least time while using infrared heating to gently seal in hair’s moisture to keep your locks looking healthy and hydrated. It has variable heat settings (170°F – 390°F) and an ergonomic design but it is heavy and its use is limited to US/Canada. Plus, it has a limited 1 year warranty which leads to complaints about its short life span.

Corioliss Pro-V: Ceramic and tourmaline plates provide healthy hair with a vibrant shine while a dual voltage allows this straightener to be used worldwide. A professional swivel cord and a temperature control (140-410°F) make it safe and easy to use on all hair types. However, an impractical design makes it a bit risky to turn off as the power switch is right too near to the plates.

FHI platform: Tourmaline ceramic technology for frizz free styles and unique Nano-Fuzeion for clean and healthy hair are this straightener’s advantages. It has a variable heat setting (140-450°F) and a swivel cord for easy handling. Disadvantages involve ceramic coated plates (lower quality), hair snagging, the plate’s inability to press together completely and its extremely short life span.

CHI Nano Ceramic Digital: This high tech flat iron uses ceramic and ionic technology, far infrared heat, and nano – silver technology for healthy styles in half the time. Its flash heating deliver faster straightening and its digital controls maintain accurate temperatures. But no matter how versatile or ergonomic this straightener may be, it’s still harshly reviewed due to its poor heating, extreme hair snagging and a life span that lasts just after its 1 year warranty expires.

T3 Medium Duality: Known for being the best dual voltage straightener, the T3 combines tourmaline and ceramic for fine results and allows safe straightening for everyone with its variable temperature settings. This relatively expensive product has received many negative comments about its poor design and mediocre results that would be expected from a regular cheap straightener.

GHD Dark: This high end straightener uses digital technology to regulate the temperature for even heat distribution that will quickly and efficiently straighten hair. Its universal voltage makes it compatible worldwide and its sleep and shiver mode give it an extra charm for many users. It comes in a fancy packaging along with a thermal case and an instructional DVD. Unfortunately these straighteners don’t last very long since their plates are just aluminum painted over with ceramic. Plus, it has a fixed heat of 370°F which is much too high for regular use and it also limits this straightener to thick and curly hair types.

CHI Ceramic: Ceramic coated plates, a lightweight design and an energy saving wattage are its main aspects. Favorable features include an extra-long cord and a fast heat up time, but although it makes the list due to its popularity, it’s not exactly a high quality straightener. Swarms of negative reviews all come down to the same aspects: low quality plates (not real ceramic), not worth the high price, short life span, harmful fixed heat (370°F), limited voltage and snagging.

Overall, this is possibly the worst choice but it seems to work well for some so it remains among the top ten according to users.

Keep in mind that deciding on a straightener won’t only affect your pocket, but also your hair’s health, so make sure that the one you choose is worth it in every aspect.
