Best Hair Straighteners 2019
It is however not wrong to state that if I said that these exact hair straighteners are best for your hair if your hair is thick it will take more time to get the style, it also depends on your genetic type and the climate where you live in.
It is up to the user to buy the type of hair straightener best suited for their purpose, I cannot assure that You won’t damage your hair. Each time you use a flat iron there is a possibility of damage to hair but by using a quality tool correctly, you can reduce your chances of heat damage.
1. BabylissPro Nano Titanium-Plated ultra thin straightening iron – Who doesn’t know Babyliss
Because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews, we put this hair straightener at number 1 position. The Babyliss PRO Nano titanium ultra-thin straightener makes it possible for you to achieve shiny and straight hair at your home and it keeps your hair straight for quite a bit longer than any other straighteners.
Its 1½ inches Titanium ceramic mirrored plates heat up really fast. The size of this flat iron plates is very small compared to regular straighteners. This straightener is super lightweight any adult can easily handle and it has Swivel cord that means it can also be used for hair curling.
There is a small rolling wheel from 1 to 50 on the sight of the straightener so you can change the temperature settings that suit’s your hair type. For example, at 1-10 is best for fragile hair, 11-20 for very fine and thin hair, 21-30 for normal hair, 31-40 for wavy or curly hair and 41-50 for coarse hair.
It is worth putting the money into this rather than replacing your straightener every couple of years. This hair straightener is best for thick and curly stubborn hair. If you have been struggling to get your hair very straight not frizzing, try this one out.
BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium does not have a safety auto shut off function, So you have to always keep in mind when you finish to styling your hair make sure you unplug the straightener immediately and storage well after using. BabylissPro is not a dual voltage it is intended to operate at 120v. Therefore, a converter or an adapter plug would be necessary to operate, like in the Middle East there is a 220 volt so you will most likely need a voltage converter or an adapter.
2. BIO IONIC OnePass Straightening Iron Black / 1.5 inch – Flat Iron that worth the money
For those who always rushed in the morning. Seriously, BIO IONIC does what it says. This amazing straightening iron straights your hair in “One pass” that means it does the job very quickly and it heats up to 400Degree Fahrenheit within a matter of seconds and cools down quickly which is absolutely awesome.
Let’s start with the exterior if the straightener, the wider 1/5 inch size cushion plates with Bio-ceramic heaters gives your hair consistent heat as you style in less passes and less mechanical damage. However, Bio-ceramic feature has the unique ability of the healing mechanism of any kind of hair. And silicone speed strips grip gives the hair a smooth pass and helps to straighten your hair better without ever snagging.
If your hair is coarse and wavy I am pretty sure you will love the results. This flat iron will cut down your straightening time if someones have super curly and thick hair which usually take 25 to 30 minutes to get straighten but with this iron, you can cut the time in half, minimum to an average of 14 minutes. It does not dry and crisp your hair out at all.it makes your hair shiny.it can create perfect curls on any type.it has 10 feel swivel cord and easy 4 adjustable temperature setting which gives smooth and long-lasting results.
It has no dual volt option. Bio ionic works on 120v so when you are traveling you would need an adapter or converter.
3. KIPOZI professional titanium Flat iron / 1 inch – Best Budget Flat Iron
Next up we have KIPOZI professional flat iron in titanium matte finish body. it is the best option where money matters. While the time I was writing a review I was a little unsure since the price was so low, but great user s experience and their reviews about this straightener amazed me.
KIPOZI has been one of the best brands in the market. Their straighteners and other beauty product have always been budget friendly. Today, I am looking at their take on a KIPOZI professional flatiron titanium 1-inch hair straightener, with all features in ridiculous price.
The KIPOZI professional flat iron has Nano-titanium 1inch plates that make your hair ultra-smooth, shiny without causing any damage and frizz because of it’s advance PTC ceramic heater that can heat up to 170F to 450F that is perfect for all sort of hair.
I am delighted to say that this straightener has a dual voltage option that you didn’t find in the first two straighteners. 100V and 240V allow you to use in America and Europe and the Middle East also. However, you do not always have to carry a bulky adapter in your luggage bag while traveling which I like the most. And one thing more, you will need a plug adapter when you use this straightener in abroad because KIPOZI’s plug only works in the US.
The KIPOZI flat iron has a digital blue screen display which allows you to see better temperature visibility of your desired heat setting. It makes you everything visible. And 8-foot long swivel cord makes your job easier while curling hair, having this feature is a good thing.
Another interesting thing I like about this straightener is auto shut off feature. if your straightener remains turn on 90 minutes of nonuse it will turn off automatically. And one important thing is in KIPOZI flatiron is safety lock function for conveniently store and prevent straightener’s plates from scratch.
There are some things that I don’t like about KIPOZI professional flat iron though; it absolutely heats up fast but you cannot straighten your hair in one single pass. You might have to go over your hair couple of time to get a completely straight result.
4. VOLOOM Classic 1 1/2 Inch Volumizing Hair Iron – Number 1 Hair Crimper Tool
VOLOOM classic has dominated the true hair volumizing tool. It gives your hair root an immediate lift. I am sure this would be one of the best investment you have ever made. The VOLOOM hair volumizing iron is a finishing tool that has a weird waffle pattern. So it is generally an exciting thing for one’s who always worry about thin hair. I can tell right away that this volumizing hair iron is amazing.
It is a revolutionary volumizing iron that is specially designed to add long-lasting volume to your shoulder length and long length hair. So, use VOLOOM any time you want to add lush, huge volume for days. Huge, lasting volume is what everyone wants.
Let’s get into mechanics of this VOLOOM crimper iron. It does come with a really nice long cord. There is a safety lock feature which is good while you are traveling and it has also a digital display helps to let you know that it’s heating up. The cool thing about this crimper is it goes automatically turn off in 30 minutes in no use. VOLOOM has a protective coated plate and ionic plates, that help seal the hair cuticle and protect it from damage.
As for performance, VOLOOM crimper iron takes almost 10 minutes to crimp your whole head except for the visible areas. VOLOOM’d hair will retain its volume for a day, two or even three days and the volume lasts until you washed. Another great thing is that you need to shampoo, color, and heat-style your hair less often with VOLOOM. However, washing and styling more with this condition does more harm than good
The VOLOOM classic box contains some strong hair clips to section off your hair, a teasing comb in a beautiful red color tail, a mini travel bag and a booklet to help you get started.
5. Xtava Infrared Flat Iron Hair Straightener /2 Inch – Affordable Flat iron
If you are looking for an infrared flatiron, The Xtava infrared hair straightener is the best option of your choice. This is the most affordable straightener in our list compare to others.
Most of the hair straightener that I have reviewed so far doesn’t have infrared technology and they are super expensive that is the reason because this additional feature makes Xtava stands out from the crowd.
The Xtava Pro Satin Infrared flat iron glides over your hair and leaves it so smooth and pin straight. Infrared heat technology directly penetrates into your inner part of your hair strand and provides effective heat for styling and prevent hair to looks frizzy. it doesn’t snag and leave your hair dry rather it gives your hair shiny and smooth look with its 2-inch wide ceramic tourmaline floating plates.
This straightener might be the best option you will ever find if you compare the fancy ones. Xtava infrared is super inexpensive, It heats up quickly in 90sec, and gets up to 445, which is pretty hot! With digital display setting, you have an option to choose 10 different temperature settings. A 60-minute auto shut off function for peace of mind and8-foot long 360-degree swivel cord, Lock Feature when in use. This hair iron kit includes a heat resistant travel case and has a dual voltage plug so you can maintain your style on the go
We won’t be saying that the Xtava infrared flat iron is the perfect hair straightener, it does have some flaws like the buttons are in a very inconvenient place because it is exactly where you hold. The issue with this straightener is, it takes a few more swipes than any other flatiron. You have to make 3 or 4 passes per section (depending on how fast you are moving your straightener)
6. BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Prima3000 – Professional Hair Iron
It’s always a nice choice to buy any Babyliss beauty products. For decades, Babyliss has always been introducing revolutionizing electro beauty products to the market. Every single Babyliss product built with 100 percent purpose to make our daily life easier!
The Babyliss pro-Nano titanium prima 300 is one of the most innovatory product made by Babyliss.it just not only straighten your hair it easily makes your hair smooth and curls with maximum ease. Seriously, it glides on your hair like butter.
So now let’s jump into its features. This stainless titanium straightener has inch and a quarter size Aircraft-Grade Titanium plates for highly efficient heat transfer and comes with 9-foot industrial length cord. And a safety lock mechanism keeps the plates lock together during not using them and also prevent from scratches on the plates.
The outside does get hot and you can use it as a wand curler also. Sometime the hot exterior could interfere while straightening a hair but don’t worry it’s silicon tips prevent your finger to get burned and for more safety, inside the box, you will find a pair of gloves that cover a thumb and first two fingers.
Babyliss pro nano titanium only has the option of the 5 preset temperatures 300F, 340, 380, 410, and 465. The plates wrap around the edges of the flatiron so you can get very close to the root.
A word of caution, it also heats up extremely fast so just be careful there. Due to the high heat, you just need to use a hair protectant on your hair before using this item or it will get damaged. After that, it doesn’t have an automatic turn off function so do not leave it plugged in while not in use.
No doubt this straightener is powerful, but I would rather say this tool is built for those who are a hair stylist and run their own saloon by profession. Because while using by mistake you can forget to turn it off or accidentally touch your finger to the upper side of the straightener.
7. Infiniti Pro by Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron; 1-inch – Affordable One
The next up on our list is the Infiniti Pro by Conair, this thing is absolutely amazing I mean just look at this straightener quality and compare it to the price you will definitely know it’s a really great straightener.

I love how slim it is! The infinity pro will take hardly 30 minutes to straighten your hair and gets the job done in an easy manner. And the auto turn off function gives you peace of mind in case you live it on.
One real downside I discovered that the plates only touched at the very tip. Plates don’t come together unless you press really hard and the plates don’t meet to give the ability to straighten in one stroke, you have to go back for a second time.

The next on the list is HIS professional glider, it could be the best hair straightener for budget oriented people.

I hope the information contain in this buyer’s guide will help you to choose the best hair straightener for your specific needs from all of the choices available. Although buying a hair straightener is not a difficult task at all, but with all of the many brands, price points, style and feature make buyers confuse.
As far as I’m concerned I do like straightener brush for a more “natural” straight compared to the stick-straight look from a flat iron. Because straightening brush keeps your volume and seems to be much less damaging. A flat iron emits more direct heat to the hair shaft where this is somewhat less due to the brush technique as opposed to clamping. The surface of the brush is much wider than a flat iron, allows more contact with the hair for faster styling.
The detailed information contained in this buyer guide will help you to pick the right tool that matches your hair type. It is important to know that all the straighteners are not built equally and every hair type so, keep in mind picking up a random hair straightener won’t be a good idea because buying hair straightener unknowingly can cause big damage to your hair.
