We’re huge fans of embracing our kinks and curls, especially when the weather lends us no other choice (hi, frizz). But, now that summer — and the unrelenting humidity that comes with it — is almost gone, our strands finally stand a chance. Yep, silky, sleek tresses are officially back on our beauty radar again.
But, if you’ve been using the same flat iron since high school (you know, the metal-plated ones that could crimp your hair, too), it’s probably time to upgrade. Whether you have natural waves, all-over curls, or something in-between, click through for our favorite straighteners that won’t tug, bend — or worse —completely fry your strands.
