Some flat irons are better than others, and depending on your hair type, the right hair straightening will leave your hair straight for hours, with no flyaways.


Yes, the right flat iron makes the difference. I've got long, thick and loads of hair. It takes me more than a half-hour to straighten it, and within a few hours, I get frizz, flyways, and messy hair. I admit, at that time, I was using a cheap flat iron.

Since I've invested in a good one, my frizzy hair days are gone. A high-quality hair straightener appropriate for your hair type does make a difference. Let's have a look at the best ones available on the market.

What You Should Consider On a Hair Straightener


Before spending loads of money on a flat iron or a hairdryer, you should consider a few things.

  • The Temperature: Consider investing in a hair straightener that you can switch the temperature according to your needs.
  • Ion Technology: Ionic technology reduces frizz and flyways.
  • The plates: Ceramic plates take longer to heat up more they distribute the heat evenly; metal plates heat faster but cause more damage to the hair.

With no further ado, let's check the best hair straighteners on the market.
