Does anyone know of a really good flat iron for your hair?

I have the chi. I don't know if it is old or just not that great but I would like something better. The price doesn't matter. If it is worth it. Thank you for your help.

  • I use a Chi...I've had it for four years and it still works awesome---i did notice if I didnt use the chi flat iron spray w/it the results weren't as good---i tried other generic/less expensive sprays and they just didn't work as well... maybe that will help you?

  • I Love my chi. Try a diff shampoo one with a good conditioner. I use my daughters optimum once a week to give myself a good conditioning. it works pretty good.

  • Thank you ladies. I didn't know they had a chi spray. I will definitely also look into the conditioner.

  • My SIL owns her own hair salon and she told me that chi doesn't make their straightners they used too. Since they are so high demand and get sold on ebay and at target and such they're not made right anymore. She uses GHD flatirons. I love them too. They work real good.

  • Get a chi.. they are expensive but the best. I use a wet and dry straightener that I purchased from Wal-Mart..It does good for my hair but i would rather have a chi.

  • I have a Jibere tourmaline ceramic flat iron. It was around $60 when I bought it and it's lasted for like 6 years. I love it.

  • me and my cousin like the gray and purple one that you can find in most department stores. i have misplaced mine and can't remember the name, but it's wide and gray, with lavender accents, and it's about 30 dollars. my cousin is obsessed with her hair and has tried a bunch of them and likes that one the best. i dont know about truly professional ones, but this one is like a common brand

  • I personally LOVE my Chi and would never even consider using anything else! Definitely look for the Chi 44 Iron Guard spray, it works great!
