10 Best Hair Straighteners in India – 2020



Did you know that hair straightening is a styling process that was used since the 1890’s to give the hair a smooth, streamlined, and sleek appearance? This gained popularity in 1950. Straighteners work by breaking down the positive hydrogen bonds found in the hair’s cortex, which cause hair to open, bend and become curly. You can flaunt your straight sleek hair with any outfit of your choice.

With these hair straighteners, you can avoid the hassle of visiting the salons and wasting time and money. Sit in the comfort of your home and get those smooth, sleek and styled hair tresses you’ve always dreamt of. We have created a well-researched list of the Top 10 Best Hair Straighteners available in India. But before this let us have a look at the type and what to for when buying a straightener.

What are the different Types of Hair Straighteners?

1. Ceramic Flat Iron

Ceramic irons are softer on your hair, and they provide equal heat distribution. Equal heat distribution means that no strand gets damaged in the styling process since your entire hair will get an even amount of heat. This is best for fine hair.

2. Titanium Flat Iron

Titanium flat irons may be a little more expensive but they’re lightweight, heat up quickly and leave you with a head of hair to die for! It has advanced ionic conditioning which makes your hair frizz-free and smooth. This is most suitable for coarse hair.

3. Ionic Flat Iron

The term ionic usually means that the flat iron generates negative ions. Hair is usually positively charged due to its water content (H2O+) and therefore a tool that provides negative ions while styling results in smoother, shinier, frizz-free hair.

What to look for in when buying a Straightener?

1. Hair Type/ Hair Texture

When selecting a hair straightener, it is important to know your hair type, so that you can opt for the right type. If you have fine hair, go for the ones which offer you the flexibility of temperature setting to avoid damage. Thick and frizzy hair requires higher temperatures to manage them.

2. Temperature Settings

The hair straighteners with high-temperature settings are the best since they can straighten any type of hair. When you’re styling fine, processed hair with heat, 350°F/175°C is a safe bet. For thick/curly hair, by styling at 450°F/ 232°C.

3. Heating Time

Different hair straighteners take different time to heat up. The one which takes less time has to be the better one.

4. Auto-off

An auto-off feature is an essential safety feature that every straightener must-have. The feature automatically switches off the hair straightener when not in use for a long time to prevent accidents. The auto-off function also saves power consumption.

5. Plate width

The perfect plate width and size of your hair straightener is to be found by your hair length and type. The flimsy plates are 2.5 to 3 centimeters wide and are made for fixing short hair. Medium plates are 3 to 4 centimeters wide and generally reasonable for short to medium length hair. Wide plates being 6 centimeters wide is made for fixing long, thick hair.

6. Price

A good hair straightener will require you to make a good investment. While they are not too expensive, you will need to make price one of the factors to consider when buying a hair straightener. Be careful of the very cheap products, especially when it comes to electrical appliances. Remember this is a device that will be using electricity, and if it is too cheap, it may not be well made or even work well in your house and may cause mishaps.
