Hey girls!

I just cut my hair short and I'm going all natural but I still want to be able to straighten my hair every now and then. I've been browsing to see what the best flat-iron is for me to use and a couple of brands I keep hearing are Hana, Sedu, and Babyliss. I have type 4A hair. I know straightening is the lesser of two evils when it comes to natural hair, but if i'm going to do it I at least want to use one that will do minimal damage :-) Any of you have any experience with either of the 3 flat irons, or even another flat iron you recommend?

Thanks!!
I haven't tried the others, but my sedu has been working really well for me. I've had it 3+ years now. But if you have short hair try looking for irons that are thin, it's easier that way.
Hair type: 2C-3A, very dry, extremely low porosity, med elasticity, insanely thick kinky-wavy.
HGs: Trader Joe's Nourish spa conditioner, Epsom salt rinse, Joico K-pak conditioner
Yea I love my sedu and it's been going strong for 2+
Back when i hardcore straightened my hair, my sedu was my best friend! It definitely gave really good results and minimal damage compared to cheapie straighteners

Yea I got mine from folica they usually have free shipping
Im about to order the hana iron... when ive got some money saved. Ive had the same question about all three irons! Lol.

I ordered the babyliss after hearing rave reviews i was convinced it was definitely going to work, right? Absolutly wrong.

It was straight at first and then as i went about my day it frizzed like no other!! So frusterating after spending so much money, so i sent it back and i am now back to being a poor college student so im saving for a hana. I hear sedu works really well though! Tell us how it goes!

I have the Sedu Revolution and it is the best I've ever used. I no longer use it on me but often straighten or curl friends hair with it and get awesome results. Just be careful with heat settings and never go above 400 degrees bc that will sear the cuticles and change hair texture ie hair won't curl. That's what happened to me!! Scared me enough to stop flatironing, for now!
3a/b, fine texture, low porosity, normal elasticity, mod-CG 7/11/11

Poo: KC Come Clean, SM Moisture Retention
CO: CJ Curl Rehab, CJ Argan & Olive Oil, Renpure Argan Oil, YTCucumbers, Sevi Pumpkin
Style: AIF, HESMU, Biolage gelee, KCCC
LOOB for second day hair


Like BS/ACV rinses, limit protein/humectants.
Actually, your hair enters the glass transition phase at 320F.

You can try the Chi? I've had the original for about 3 years now and it still works great. They aren't as expensive now as they were a couple of years ago, about $80 or so. Oh, and it never damaged my hair at all.
Well I've used different brands and those that you mentioned haven't worked for me, now I use a great flat iron that leaves my hair soft, shiny, frizzless and very straight, it's the Karmin G3 Salon Pro and it has tourmaline ceramic plates which causes less damage to the hair than the other flat irons. I totally recommend it, it's really good.

I would suggest the u-smooth flat iron. It heats all the way up to 450 degrees, but has temperature control so you can set it where you need to avoid heat damage. It has titanium coated plates that slide through your hair avoiding frizz. I love mine! Check it out! U-Smooth Best Flat Irons
I have a Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium iron that I love. I used to have a Karmin G3 salon pro that was amazing too. If you are looking to buy a Babyliss don't buy it on Ebay or Amazon, there are a lot of fake ones floating around.

Best I have ever used is the Karmin:comprimir:
I've been through a few Sedu straighteners over the years and it seemed like every year I was always buying a new one since it would break down. On New Eve in Dec of 2012 my last one again stopped working and of to Ulta I went!!!

I ended up getting the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium 1 1/4" and OMG its the best!!
With the Sedu my hair took 30-45mins to straighten but with this it takes only 20-30mins!!
I highly rec it!!!! I've owned mine for 3yrs now!
3b but with a mix of 3a/3c
Fine/med texture
Normal/low porosity
