bees my trusty ipro hair straightener (which I’ve had for 7 years 😬) is having some temper tantrums lately and I’m going to have to look to replace it before it bites the dust. I have medium length super thick hair that wants to be wavy/curly but not in a pretty way (I would love if it did!).
needs to have automatic shut off (just in case although I always remember to turn it off) and I really love the digital setting but not a requirement. Price does not matter as long as it’s worth the money (I can’t rememver exactly but I paid $250+ for my current one and use it every day).
any brand suggestions? Thanks!!!

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.

Thanks everyone so far! I’ve tried purchasing at winners before and have been really disappointed (even trying the “more expensive” winners models). I find they either pull a little bit or it takes multiple passes to straighten (I section my hair to straighten it since it’s so thick!).
