This is one of the most important tools in hair design. It does so much – straightens, flips, makes waves. It is something you must have, if you really love your hair. However, you can not truly say you love your hair, unless you get a good, quality device, because a bad one will burn or otherwise ruin the hair. So, if you do get one, get a good one.

To help you pick a good model and not be left with a cheap gimmick, we have put together a list of five best hair straighteners. They differ by price, but every one of them has the best ratio of quality to price.

This one’s plates are special for emitting infrared heat instead of directly heating the hair. This kind of heating has the advantage of more sparing treatment with less burning and dessication. Nonetheless, it does a great job at heating. The heat is selected on a dial, which turns fluidly and lets you pick precisely.

The manufacturer has three versions of this for sale – with widths of 1, 1.5 and 2 inches.

The ceramic plates heat up almost immediately after turning the device on. The plates are long, so the work goes much faster. The maximum selectable temperature is 450 degrees. The porcelain also emits beneficial ions, which, as is well known, is beneficial for hair.

Pros:

  • Is known for being one of the few that straighten frizzy hair
  • Many buyers like how the heat is easy to change precisely
  • This one never snags or pulls hair, even when clamped down strongly.

Cons:

  • Some complain of buying a fake. This is a prevalent problem, however it can be fixed by simply sending it back and reordering

This model is comb-shaped. Its triangular teeth let you save time by working much quicker than regular brush teeth. Its surface heats up in 60 seconds. The teeth heat up too, and this is what lets you finish so quickly. Also, the contact area, where the teeth touch the hair, is much bigger, than if you used plates. All of this lets you work very quickly, so this is ideal for people who hurry in the morning.

There are 24 teeth, and so your hair is separated into many strands. All the hair is heated uniformly. The heat never gets to a damaging level, and the device actually imparts a healthy glow to your strands.

The plastic contains a flame retardant, so you do not have to be afraid of a fire. The frame is made in such a way, that the heated part will never contact your scalp. Also the comb powers down when not used, both to save energy and for safety.

There are five heat levels, ranging from 266 to 410 Fahrenheit. The brush’s power cord is held by a swivel, and does not restrict the user’s motion. The comb can use both voltages, so you can take it to Europe.

The manufacturer presents a year warranty with the comb.

Pros:

  • Amazingly quick at straightening hair of any type
  • Small and maneuverable, good for traveling
  • It is a great straightener and a decent comb too

  • Does not always get the ends of the hair
