I don't know how inexpensive you're looking at, but my friend used an Andis Straightener on my hair, and I think they're about 20-30 dollars. It was nice. I think they sell them at Target. They might be at other places, too, but that was the only place I checked.

Otherwise, the BaByliss got pretty good reviews on Folica, and I think that was about 20 dollars.

Good Luck!

Another vote for Andis. I used to struggle with my Conair. It was horrible and did nothing. You can even find the Andis on www.amazon.com if you can't find it in the store.
Better everyone think your a fool, than to open your mouth and prove them right.

Hi. I got the Conair Ceramic Pro at Target for $19.99. I've used it for about a year now, and it works pretty good. Not as good as a Maxiglide or a Chi, but for $19.99, it does a good job. Here's a pic of my hair pressed with this iron. BTW, I have 3C hair.

3b/c texturized hair.

I use a Conair Ceramic Pro. I got it for like $14.99 at Wal-Mart, my roommate has one too. It gets the job done for the inexpensive price. Its the only one I own.
