Best Flat Iron for African American 4a hair?

I have a Hair Art flat iron, but it's not all that. It's durable, though. I've had it for years. Anyway I'm thinking of trying a Roller Set/Wrap +Flat Iron combo in getting my hair straight, and I'd like to know what flat irons are best. I've done some research already but I'm interested to see what you ladies have to say here.
head full of wild crazy kinks and curls :cool:

    Agreed. Sedu is the jam. You can get at ulta... my mom got one at Ulta but I payed about $45 bucks less for mine on cause they email me coupons and I got a free heat mat, a sedu heat protectant and some tote bag for free ^^ :D

    I like the Baby Bliss Flat Iron. I read about it on and it said it is good for natural hair...and how! I would recommend this to anyone.

    I use the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium flat iron. My friend who has super tight curls also uses the same one and it works really well. Avoid buying it on Amazon and Ebay as there are a lot of fake ones floating around. Another flat iron I love is the Karmin G3 Salon Pro. I have heard good things about the Irresistible Me Diamond flat iron as well. If you're on a tight budget the Remington Wet 2 Straight flat iron works well too (always use it on dry hair though), but I found it damages the hair more.
