What is the best flat iron to buy?

I would like to find for my girl the best flat iron for around $30-$40 or under that will make your hair very straight and neat looking. Which one would you recommend?

And also, what would be a great heat protector to use on curly, fine hair?

I bought a Sedu the other month & so far it works pretty good but a while after I use it my hair reverts back to how it was before. This happens with any heat tool (hot comb, yea I still use one!) I use so I can't blame the sedu but I can't tell if it really works that great since my hair has a hissy fit.

Go to a salon and ask for help. They'll be able to steer you to the right product for your hair.

As far as what product, it just depends on your personal preference. Personally, I love Aveda products because they smell so darn good. They have a line called Color Conserve but I don't think it smells as good as some of their other products. Also, has some really good product lines. and are really good.

I've used both, I currently use Biosilk products. I just looked on their website and they have a line specifically for color called Sunglitz and the Chi line is called Color Ionic, ionic color protector. The Color Ionic packaging looks exactly like the regular Chi but the bottles are blue instead of red. I haven't used this line but I'm sure it does what is says.

You don't "need" heat protectant spray but your will fry after awhile if you don't us it. Heat protectant spray is suppose to help your hair style the way you want it to as well has protecting your hair from the damaging heat of the straightener.

I use Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray, you can find it at any store and its not super expensive. You can spray it on dry or damp hair before straightening, blow drying, or curling. I would definitely suggest using a protectant of some kind, crispy hair is not fun to deal with trust me :)

Get the herbal essences shampoo+conditioner, about $5 ea bottle, one or two washes your hair is back to normal and healthy ... it happened to my hair a few weeks back i was so shocked!

Also, you should ALWAYS use a heat protection spray in your hair before you use anything on your hair that has heat. ALWAYS!!! any type of heat is not good for your hair.

I always use a heat protection spray before i use my blow drier and i always use my blow drier and hair straightener on the lowest heat setting possible to prevent heat damage.

Applying any heat to your hair without a heat protecting spray will damage your hair. Don't use it afterwards, always use it first before you apply any heat.

The ionic hair straightener is better for your hair but it still applies heat to your hair so you still need a heat protecting spray.

Another question. What kinds of hair products i can use for my hair to get straight? The stylist said, my hair is dry and kinda curly because i only used shampoo. I need specific brands of conditioners or shampoos i could use. My hair is not too long not too short.

Thanks so much all! I'll definitely use these tips.

I like Babyliss, because it works as well as a chi, and it has heat settings. It may be a splurge, but it lasts a really long time and it doesn't ruin your hair, even if you have ethnic hair types.

I recommend you the best flat iron that I've used, it's the Karmin G3 Salon Pro. It heats up to 450f with temperature control, dual voltage, tourmaline ceramic plates with rounded edges which makes it great for also curling your hair.

It works pretty good with any type of hair, plus it keeps the hair soft, shiny and very straight. I hope this helps.

Only proffesional HSI Flat Iron.

This is the BEST 1" ceramic straightener I have ever used, and the price is phenomenal. My hair was very shiny after use, and I didn't need to use any sprays or sheens. With this flat iron, I can curl my hair, flip my hair, and of course straighten my hair. After use, my hair was bouncy and it looked almost as good as when I go to the hair salon. I could go on for hours about how much I love this new flat iron, but don't take my word for it, buy one for yourself before they raise the price. I forgot to mention that there is a teeny tiny bottle of hair serum that comes in the box with the flat iron. It works very well, but it is just a sample size, so don't expect it to last for more than 2 uses.
