    i got some brilliant babylis ones from boots: "babylis pro solid ceramics" they were only about £30 and really slim for short hair... work amazingly. would thoroughly recommend over ghd ones (which i have used several times and dont leave my hair half as shiny and always seem to make it static as well). i used to have some that were about £50, think they were nicky clark, they werent ceramic and were useless. make sure whatever you get is solid ceramic rather than just coated as they heat up much faster. modern straighteners shouldnt damage your hair, so long as you use the right products. you need a protective serum, and use plenty as it gets evaporated by the straightening irons. i like beverly cobella serum, is only about £6 for a little squirty pot and works really well as it leaves nothing much visible behind. i used to use a bed head product but i cant remember what it was called, just ask in a salon and theyll recommend smoething.

    i got GHD ones, so i dunno about any others really - jus try to get some 2nd hand! permanently straightening it doesn't work well at all (according to my hairdresser) and it doesn't last very longs, as well as the chemicals damaging ur hair
    you can straighten your hair ionically...dont know how its done! something presumbley to do with physics, in China town. Its like Japanese technology or something. It's really good, doesnt damage the hair, lats until the hair grows out, but is bloody expensive!!

    One question and don't take it the wrong way! Are you white? If so don't do it!
    You'll fry your hair, trust me. either way if you really want your hair straight regardless of your race I'd reccomend you get it done proffessionally, yeah it's expensive but it will look good and you will walk out with your hair still attatched to your scalp.
    Cos like, there ARE forums you can go to, to talk about that, if you'd like. Seriously, does it matter what 'race' you are when it come to hair straightners? Gee, maybe sum1 should do a survey for you, get everyone PISSED OFF at you for being such a blatently narrow-minded and judgemental person. Coz if you think about it, everyone's individual, and no matter which country you're from, ur gonna get ppl. with curly hair, straight hair, short hair (pink hair! Pink hair's cool, tho!) etc. - sounds like you need to learn to look at things in a different way. See people individually, 'Infinity'.

    I have Vidal Sasson one! It's OK, altho there was too much hype over it before I bought it. It's got an annoying 'comb' thing which keeps coming off (mind you, I do have natually v.thick and wavy hair, so that probably adds to that) when I straighten my hair, so I usually take it off before hand. But yeah, it's a pretty good styler. I also recommend the curler by the same brand, my boyfriend bought me one for Christmas and it's also works well, as with the hairdryer. Extra tip: wanna get value for money? Best buy at Boots (or Priceline if you live in Australia), coz can get the same thing, for less, and get points on your card (if you have one).

    Dont get metal plate ones, they end up wrecking your hair, what you need is one with ceramic plates.

    I think what infinity meant was that not all hair is the same. There are hairdressers that specialise in 'afro' hair. There are different hair products, different styling techniques. In fact if you go to college there are different courses in how to cut different hair!

    Infinity, sorry if I jumped in too soon to give you chance to defend yourself.
