Default Flat irons for 4a hair

I am looking for a new flat iron. I want a Hana or a Croc 2, but I can not afford one. I was looking at the flat irons at TJmaxx / Marshalls. They had flat iron by Ed Hardy, Cortex, and Fahrenheit for about $25 each. Has anyone tried any of these?

I recently bought the cortex flat iron at Marshalls. It works better than my $100 flat iron. For $35 I luv it! I used it to flat iron my hair in my siggy as a matter of fact...

I personally like the Chi but bought the off brand, GVP from Sally's. I've used both & they both make my hair really silky, shiny, & straight! You can also adjust the temp & don't forget the heat protectant!

I just googled my flatiron to see which one it was. It's the Babyliss Pro Narrow White Ceramic Flat Iron, it works pretty good for me and a lot of the sites i saw it on charged about $90 for it.

-Probably a good reason i got it from my mom, cuz i most likely wouldn't have spent the money on it back when i got it. l0l

This is the one I have as well. I think it works great!

I think you can get away with a "cheap" flat iron if your technique is on point. The straighter your get your hair before you flat iron, the better the iron will be. (in my experience)
