Which Flat Iron is Best?

naturaleighmenaturaleighme Posts: 6Registered Users
Tourmaline, Ceramic, or Titanium?

I am not new here, but haven't posted in ages. I am looking to buy a flat iron for my daughter. Her hair is thick naturally curly and she generally has it done professionally. I want to start doing her hair myself. She does wear it natural sometimes and already has some heat damage from years before.

The information online I have found, doesn't seem to be very helpful, there are so many conflicting ideas, so it's hard to tell.

Any advice would be great!

Thanks!

    I heard ceramic is the best for no snags and pulls. I have a chi. the black one that says global beauty.

    Thanks for your response! I'm not getting a lot of feedback and I'm really trying to make a purchase decision today.

    The general consensus is that (depending on your hair type) ceramic or ceramic coated are the safest.

    The most popular ones seemed to be the Sedu or the Solia to name two...

    But you can compare brands at www.folica.com . The testimonials with before and after photos are the most helpful.

    Good luck!
    'Poo: Aubrey Organics or Suave Clarifying
    or Liquid African Black Soap (only 4-ingredients ; awesome!)
    Co-Wash: Aubrey Organics or Suave Condish
    Condish: Aubrey Organics or Onion Mask or Yogurt
    DT: Honey + Olive Oil + AO Condish or Yogurt mix

    Best Gel Combo, Ever!: Elasta Qp Feels Like Silk Liquid Gel +/under Eco Styler [Krystal, Brown] Gel (or under Wetline Extreme Styling Gel)- awesome!!

    Oops, meant to say, I have GHD brand too and having tried many over the years it is by far my favorite. My current one is 3 years old and has traveled all over the world and still works as well as the day I bought it.

    for me the best flat iron is the karmin g3, it has tourmaline ceramic plates that cause less damage to the hair. :D if you are interested I bought mine @ safrons. com :D good luck girl :P :grommit: :queen:
