No drama on this one! Yay! The amount of crazy on this forum this week is just too much.

So. I need to get a new hair dryer, and while I'm at it I was thinking I should replace my flatiron and curling iron, they're fairly old.

My question is, are the higher priced brands really worth it? For example, Is there any real difference between a CHI hair dryer/iron and a Revlon one?

What's your favorite brand of styling tools?

 Go to Sally's and get the Hot Tools brand. It's a very good middle brand. Works as well as chi. No difference. Revelon wont get as hot, wont blow as hard and will break faster. There, I've done my good deed for the day. LOL!

I am in love with John Frieda hair straighteners. I don't remember the exact model, mine is silver and they are $50. I guess I figure that its somewhere in the middle of Chi and Walmart brand ;)
But seriously, it heats up in 5 seconds, and leaves my hair soft, silky, and most importantly...non frizzy!!

We always use CHI straightners. My SDs and I are all biracial (African American & Caucasian and I am African American and Hispanic) and DH is African American. We all have fairly long hair. DH's is really coarse and SDs and I have thick, curly hair. The CHI is the only straightner i've been able to find that works for all of us and doesn't burn our hair. They also last a long time too.

Same here. I can't remember what I paid for mine though.

Quoting CodeBlue:
