Hair straighteners for fine thin hair!

May 30th, 2008, 20:49 PM   #1
 
My hair is naturally straight (ish) and very very fine... the cheapo straighteners I have don't actually do anything more than drying it carefully does. My sisters expensive ones (not sure what they are) make my hair really straight and soooo silky and lovely...

is it worth me getting myself some more expensive ones? Are there any that are particularly good for hair like mine??

p.s. i've been inspired by kirsty's GHD talk...lol

IMO GHD's are the best
and worth the money (if you can afford them)
and they do last, they don't break easily
(the amount of times ive dropped mine )

I agree GHDs are fab! I have very fine hair (well I did before I had LO - it's a bit thicker at the mo) and it's quite straight. I love my GHDs. They stop all the frizz / kinks that occur with rain, mist fog etc!

Definitely worth an investment!

GHD's are amazing and well worth the money.

i would never get any other make now

it may seem like a lot of money initially, but well worth it! i've had mines for 5 years now never a problem with them

my hair hates being straightened - its fine but there's lots of it, and its naturally curly but prone to frizz...

i use babyliss pro 230 straighteners now, and they're every bit as good as GHDs - i love them, and they're a fraction of the cost.

as long as you get straighteners with solid ceramic plates (not plated) and that heat above 220 degrees, then they should be pretty good

I recommend you a great hair straightener that works amazing, it's the Karmin G3 Salon Pro, it has tourmaline ceramic plates that cause less damage to the hair than the others, it heats up to 460F for all hair textures, it's dual voltage, plus it keeps the hair soft, shiny and very straight. I luv it !! If you are interested you can check it out online at rylees.
Good luck girl

GHDs any day!! I bought my first pair 5 years ago and they broke last summer and I had abused them and never really looked after them properly. Bought some more and hopefully they will last just as long if not longer! x

I also have very fine hair and I use GHDs, but have to be careful not to overdo it, otherwise my hair gets impossibly dry and straw-like.

GHD's are the way forward!! I've had mine about 4/5 years now and still going strong!! I had a pair for a couple of years before this, and only had to replace them because my mum stood on them and they snapped (shes not a heffer, just stood on them right where they join, iykwim?) I actually sellotaped them back together at one point and they still worked!!
