3 Hair Straighteners On My Radar

True Me Original Flat Iron

Ever since I stopped applying chemicals to my hair (aka relaxers), I’ve had a love-hate relationship with my natural hair because I’m not one to wear it curly. Now, before the hair brigade comes for me, I’ve tried many a twist-outs and braid-outs and disliked them. So I end up either wearing my hair in a bun (my current go-to), or braiding my hair.

The thing is, as much as I (ahem) enjoy buns and braids, straight hair is more so my thing. And since perspiring throughout the year is my super power (that’s how we’re embracing it this decade), my hair tends to revert very quickly. So I’ve spent the last few months researching how I can keep my hair relatively straight for a week without it reverting and once I’ve got a solid plan, i’ll share it with you all.

In the meantime, I’m due for a new hair straightener as my current GHDs are no longer cutting it, i’m in the market for a new one. I’d love to get something that allows me to control the temperature and modify it to my needs.

  1. True Me Original. I was first drawn to this hair straightener when I found out that it was made by the same people who created the GHD and Cloud Nine hair straighteners. Having had my GHD for about 5 years now, I know that they’re made to last. The two things that make this really attractive are: temperature control and the price. At $179, it’s one of the more affordable high end straighteners on the market.
  2. Hot Tools Gold Titanium Flat Iron. When it comes to straightening kinky/curly hair, I’ve heard really good things about titanium flat irons and also seen YouTubers using it on their hair to get that salon quality look. At $159, willing to give it a shot. The hot tools iron also has temperature control which is very important to me.
  3. Cloud Nine Touch Iron. When I had my hair done in a salon a few years ago, the hair stylist used a Cloud Nine iron and I remember the results being great. Having said that, it costs $285 and I’m not sure that I’m ready to drop that much on a flat iron.

Do you have a favourite flat iron that gives you that silk press result at home? I’d love to hear all about it.
