While I was getting ready for work yesterday, my straightener broke! Talk about a horrible way to start your day. I'm been faithful to the Chi brand for 7 years, going through 8 Chi's during that time. I'm a creature of habit, what can I say?
This last broken one has made me rethink my options. Sure Chi is much less expensive than it once was, but it's also no longer the best.
I need something that works, realllyy works. My hair is extremely thick and, at times, hard to handle. I need one that works even if I don't spend 2-hours on my hair. I also use my straightener to curl my hair, because a curling iron doesn't curl my hair at all. Sometimes I'll use my curling wand, like I did today, but that gives me a tighter curl than my straightener does.
My first thought it the GHD Pink Orchid. I hear the GHD might just be the best on the market. Not only that, but how gorgeous is she?
At a whopping $240 dollars, she better be gorgeous! They sell the regular ones, without all the fancy colors, for $225 on their website. Part of me wants the pretty one, but I've also heard that the colored ones don't work as well. Not for GHD particularly, just other brands.
I asked some friends on Facebook and I got some great advice back. So far I've heard the Babyliss Nano Titanium, Argan Heart, Tool Science, Paul Mitchell, Sedu, and Solano.
I'm looking to get it tonight. I can't live without a straightener for more than 48-hours! So any suggestions you ladies might have, I'm all ears!
