I'm Asian. My hair is pretty straight, and it straightens really easily. The thing is, after a while, the ends flip out. I'm looking for a straightener that is really good but not outrageously priced. O-o My friend has a $300 straightener.

What kinds are really good? I was looking at this one http://www.conair-store.com/product_detail.asp?T1=CON%20CS54 but people keep telling me not to buy conair...so help?

Nothing beats a GHD Ceramic Hair Straightener (:
but thats way too expensive ><

The brand i use is Remington. Its not that great compared to the GHD and it takes a while to heat up.
but it does the job i guess =p
it depends on your hair thickness.
i got it as a bday present, so i'm not too sure about the price.
but i suppose it was around $40-75.

If ur lukin 4 a gud straightner brand u cant beat a pair of GHD...but der really pricey..i got mine for £129.00 but it works a miracle...

but id advise yu 2 buy ceramic 1's because they glide thro ur hair which leaves it soft and shiny...nd it doesnt rip ur hair unlike others..

i think you should get the cortex . (:
it works really good; from temp ranges too like 140 - 360 and heats up pretty fast!
i got ripped off when i bought mine ; i got it for around 130;
but my cousin got the exact same one for only 35 at winners! (:

hey sorry i don't really get what you said ><
what brand is the hairstraightener?
and i'm not too sure what "wet to straight" means..
sorry ><
i'm assuming that its something about your hair getting wet and frizzy and if you use the straightener, it'll go straight?

sorry that i'm not much help !

hah, im asian too.
but my hair isnt like straight and its really thick and frizzy
so its hard to straighen,, but my sister does have a "chi straightener"
and i used it and its worked pretty good.
but its expensive.. and conair's pretty good,, but mines stoped heating up after
a year's use.
and if i were u i would never buy a Vidal Sassoon straightener, because when i
bought one,, it took like 10-14 min. just to heat up..
so i think i suggest revlon and bed head..just some affordable ones..

yeah thats a pretty good one too, when your hair
is dry but after some using of it,, if you dont
use heat protection for your hair it will damage
your hair.
but i used it a couple times when
my hair was wet and it just turned browned
and flaky.

I've got a corioliss.
Cost me £90 but it was more than worth it! I don't have to do my hair by layers any more
