I never thought that this would happen to me. I loved my Ceramic Hot Tools hair straightener. I was straightening my hair a couple of days ago and it wouldn’t turn off. I tried twenty times to move the dial from “on” to “off,” but the bugger wouldn’t budge. What’s a non-engineering major to do? It was also beginning to smell a lot like burning cinders — definitely not a good sign. I finally decided to give up and nearly electrocuted myself by taking the plug straight out of the socket.
It was time to get a new hair straightener.
Unfortunately, I don’t know that much about them, except that they cost more than they should. My more beauty forward friends got me the last one (thanks guys!), but I was thinking that I should switch to a different brand. Ceramic or non-ceramic (yes, the former is better for your hair, but it doesn’t really straighten as well as the latter), narrower or wider — it’s all Greek to me. I heard that the Babyliss Pro is great, but it’s also a lot more pricey — $119.99. Is it worth the splurge?
