The only straightener I live by are Chi irons. Here in the states they will sell them at the kiosks at the mall.

I love my CHI–I don’t know what I would do without it! It is pricier, but the quality is good and it lasts a long time. It also works much faster and gets hotter, which is an added bonus (well, for your hair routine, probably not for the health of your hair 🙂 )

I had a Chi for about 5 years then replaced it with another Chi I had for 6 years. I switched to an Infrashine after that b/c I went to a hair show and I liked that it was 100% ceramic and didn’t have hidden metal like my beloved Chi. I love both of them. I think the Chi would be easier to buy right away though and I think its cheaper too.

Chi! The difference between that and the generic conair/revlon/etc. ones that you buy at the drugstore is immeasurable.

Not sure what kind of hair you have but this is amazing for my fine, straight hair.  It makes it perfectly smooth with one swipe, without being too ‘powerful’ or hot.

ETA: as the pp wrote, nothing at shoppers is going to work as well as the professional ones out there.  Not even the ‘higher end’ ones that Shoppers sells, like TIGI.  Shame, as I hear ya about getting Shoppers points 🙁

Solia!  I was using a cheap conair straighten that I got for like $20 and what a difference the Solida was.  I’ve had this one for 6 years and its still going strong.

I have this one (Remington Ceramic) for travel, it was hard to find a dual voltage one, and it’s really good too.  If my Solia goes, I’d probably just use this one, for half the price I think its just as good.
