what's the best flat iron for curly, thick hair?

0 votes
I just recently through out my " Kyoseki" flat iron, considering it melted off the back part of my hair. Before hand I had the GHD, but it only last about a year and a half ( I took good care of it.) and it also left my hair poofy and frizzy by the end of the day, no matter what weather it was.
My friend has the CHI, and it works amazing on her hair. It stays straight all day and it look awesome. But on folica.com it said the sedu worked the best but I don’t know how it will work on my hair.
My two friends also have the Solia flat iron. And it works awesome. But, like I said, I want the BEST.
So what’s your personal, experience opinion on a flat iron that will keep my curly, thick, frizzy hair straight and smooth ALL DAY?
I don’t want to know how damaging flat irons are. I want a flat iron. That’s what the question is, right?

None of them.
ALL HAIR STRAIGHTENERS, no matter what brand, who sells them, how much you paid for them, ALL damage the hair. Read YA HAIR for 30 mins. and you can read what it’s doing to their hair, even the most expensive salon products: Hair loss, hair falling, split ends, hair not growing normally.
Read one ex:
About two years ago i put a chi chemical Straightener in my hair and now my hair is SUPER damaged and i have a lot of breakage, and my hair looks super bad. I have been trying hair product after hair product and none of them seem to be working.
Another ex:
I am 14 years old, I used to straighten my hair but I stopped and started blow drying my hair but I’m stopping that now too, In the past half year I have dyed my hair black twice but I’m probably stopping that now too.
And another ex:
I don’t hate my hair or anything…it’s just not what I would like it to be. It sticks up sometimes in places and is damaged from my Chi straightener. I have been using protection the past few months on my hair and have also started using Tresemme Thermal Recovery shampoo and conditioner. I also spray Chi Iron Guard on my hair before I start straightening. It’s helped, but I want to find other ways to get my hair shinier and softer too. My hair sometimes feels rough, not really terribly coarse or hard or anything that bad but I want it smooth and soft. Help mee!
i have relaxed my hair and i am really trying to keep it healthy still but… I want it longer and im not sure whats safe and what not to do… HELP PLEASE!!!!
And another:
I had brazillian hair straightening, now my hair is falling out, what can I do to curb it?
But this one says it all:
Ok so the last time I had a real haircut was about 3 years ago. I used to straighten my hair about 5 times a week, for like a a year and a half after that and it did not grow at all during that time. Well I dyed it and I could see the roots, but it never got longer, I guess it was breaking off..So finally I got an inch trimmed off cause I thought that might help but I kept straightening it and still it didn’t grow. So like last december I got it trimmed again and I decided I would stop straightening and dying my hair for good so haven’t straightened or dyed it in like 8 months now and still it hasn’t even grown 1 inch. Oh and also I have been getting it trimmed like 1/4 inch every other month now since january cuz the hairdresser told me that would help it grow, but it’s not in fact my hair is now actually shorter then when I started three years ago because of those trims I had, it’s only like shoulder length now
Anyways why won’t my hair grow?? I have taken so many vitamins, I tried hair skin and nails, hairtopia, hairfinity, prenatal vitamins. I eat healthy and I exercise too and I take really good care of my hair, I only wash it twice a week in cool water now and I deep condition and everything, but still it never grows anymore, I think it might be breaking off, but why would it be still breaking off now that I have been taking such good care of it??
Those who can’t predict their future will find out the hard way by the time they’re 35 years old.
The hair industry is a billion dollar business, their job is to make money, but they don’t give money back guarantee for damaged hair.
Jose Eber is a good example, another celebrity hairstylist of the stars, in the 80′s wrote a book "Shake your head darling.’ Promoting the healthy way to style hair. Many of his celebrity models have fried hair. Now he’s promoting his own brand of hair straightening tools, which also damage the hair. Why? Because he can! By now, I think he’s bald under that hat. He never took it off since the 80′s!
Read the book by Dr. Seus’ The Sneetches & Other Stories, that’s what I’m trying to tell you.
I know hair. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s.

I have a friend that uses CHI and she recommended it to me, but I ended up going with a CONAIR IONSHINE straightener:
However my hair is not super curly, not in the slightest. It "curvy" I would say… and I think this product is great for my hair.

Definitely Karmin G3, it’s my favorite thing ever. Amazing quality and works like a charm every time. Don’t waste your time with something from the grocery store. They aren’t good for your hair!

My sister is a hair stylist and swears by her GHD. I prefer Sedu but I have had her use her GHD on my hair and she did achieve super smooth results effortlessly. I’m considering switching over to GHD for good.
