A Chi! I love mine, makes my curly dry hair very smooth. They are expensive, but mine has lasted 6 years so far and still kicking.

LOVE my Chi. And if you go to Marshalls or TJMaxx, they are significantly cheaper.

Chi, they do last forever.  Check on ebay or something to get it cheaper

I shelled out for a GHD, which I use to both straighten and curl. I wanted something that heats up really fast and does its job in one pass to save me time, and that’s exactly what it does.

I love my GHD but it was pretty pricey.

GHD all the way. Pricey but so worth it. I had a CHI but would always steal my moms GHD because it worked so much better. Finally my fiance bought me one for Christmas. I’m not sure but I think it was 180.00 from Sephora.

I got mine at Target. It’s by Rachel Zoe — black with white polka dots and pink iron. I think it was only $30 but it’s their “designer” line so it’s higher quality. I’ve had it for, like, 4 years and it’s still going strong.

My favorite thing about it is the fact that it your hair doesn’t get caught or snagged AT ALL. And it heats up within 30 seconds.

If you want something that’s normally really expensive, though, like a Chi, go to TJ Maxx or Marshall’s or Burlington. They normally have them there for less than half the original price.

I love my GHDs. My last pair lasted 9 years and only had to be replaced because I stepped on them and broke the arm.

Go to Tjmaxx, I bought mine there (Cortex brand) it was $20.00 and I have had it for 2 years. Heats up quick, no snagging and leaves my hair beautiful!

Chi, Sedu or Fhi. I have had all three and loved my Sedu the best.

I have a sedu revolution. It was great at first, but not even a year later only one side of it works. Not happy!
