What are some good flat irons for C hair? What kind do you all use for your C curls? Also what products do you all use to flat iron?

    I found a great flat iron at Sally's with the help of the sales assoc. So Chi is of course the best and most expensive I looked at a Generic Chi but she informed what you need to look for in a flat iron is heat. I purchased a "Plugged" 2inch flat iron that has 2 heating options of 375 degree's or 420. The Chi only goes to 410. If you find the highest heat options with a reliable heath protector product you can't go wrong.

    I know a lot of people use the Maxi Glide because of the steamer effect that it does while ironing.

    You should also use a heat protectant while flat ironing.

    i second Sedu! i use the 1in sedu pro and LOVE it. as my heat protectant i use Chi Silk Infusion

    my hair looks straighter now than it ever did with a relaxer. you might try going to folica's website and looking at the reviews on various straighteners with pictures. i did this, and also went with ratings and picked my 1" sedu because i felt the other ones plates were to large for my length.

    I also agree on the Sedu! I have 3c/4a hair and I don't have to take the heat past 350 sometimes (and when I straighten my hair, Its STRAIGHT). I use grapeseed oil as a heat protectant though. It isn't as heavy as other oils so you can use as much as you want without it weiging down your hair :)

    As for LeeLee's comment, I also tried the solia but returned it for the sedu. It was an ok flat iron, but the way the plates were set up really annoyed me. This was because it made it impossible to straighten my roots. If you don't have unruly roots, the solia is a good (and cheaper) choice.

    I love my maxi glide , it works well with me air drying.

    As for the thermal heat protectant I use Maxius Beyond Straight because it is dual purpose, thermal protection and humidity resistant.

    I have a Croc 2 Infrared that I like...but I rarely straighten my hair so I can't really say if it's "the best."

    Still looking for the perfect product for ironing but I don't even know if I will iron this year.

    My favourite flat iron is Babyliss nano with titanium plates. It gets my hair the straightest and shiniest. I don't usually flat iron my hair. The only time I flat iron is when I do my at home BKT.

    I second Solia. It's a great flat iron and not expensive as far as high end flat irons go.
