A few years back I was in the market for a hair straightener and upon doing some research, found that there was a general consensus that Paul Mitchell flat irons were suppose to work really well and cause less damage than others.  I never ended up buying one tho so I can’t personally attest to that lol, just wanted to share what info I had found!

I have an Azorro brush straightener.  It doesn’t have auto shutoff and apparently no longer exists (as per Amazon) but I do like it – the brush method makes the hair look a more natural straight, whereas a standard straightener can look ridiculously fake sometimes.  Just a thought to consider.

I’ve always loved the Chi’s – work great for my hair which is course and frizzy without heat styling.

I get new ones at winners whenever mine break – I’ve gotten Chi, Paul Mitchell, GHD and Paul Brown Hawaii for $30-$50 brand new because the boxes were damaged, etc. It’s a hit or miss for what you find but I could never go back to paying full price.

I’ve had my chi for about 10 years. Still works great and chi’s cermaic plates make them less damaging from what I understand. It doesn’t have auto shut off but I’m not up on the newer models so they may.

I have an ISA digital flat iron that I’ve had a couple years that’s still going strong. I have very thick long hair and it works great for me.

anev :  I have had my Sedu for ten years now! I use it almost every day, normally on the highest setting. And it has never had an issue! I love it so much.

Sam Villa.  It’s the brand my stylist uses.  eBay and Overstock usually have better prices than Amazon.

I have their flat iron and love it, so nice and smooth and easy on your hair.

Ive had my Paul Mitchell one for about 8 years and it works as well as the day I bought it!! I highly caution against chi, I had one and it stopped working right after the year warranty

I also caution against CHI. I had 2 that each stopped working after about a year. The design also had a space around the plates that would catch my hair and rip it out.

My Chi has been the most reliable.
