Great hair straighteners can be expensive. Super popular CHI straighteners, for example, usually cost more than $100. That’s expensive for someone who only uses a hair straightener every so often—which is the best way to keep your hair from drying out.
According to hyper-enthusiastic Amazon reviewers, though, it’s possible to score an effective, quality flat iron for $15. More than 3,000 Amazon reviewers have given the Remington Pro 1″ Digital Heat Flat Iron a 5-star rating. One reviewer says she’s been using it for four years and it still works well. Another raves at how well the iron glides through her kinky hair. And many reviewers say that using this flat iron has cut their styling time in half—or more.
