These tools will have your hair laid

The debate on the best flat irons and curlers will probably never end. And that’s fine. Every season, pretty much each hair brands comes out with a new and improved hair tool, flat irons included. But, until we see the newest of the new this upcoming fall, we figured we could share with you the top 3 flat irons that are perfect for Black hair.


Hot Tools Ceramic Vibrating 1” Flat Iron, $75

The oscillating plates help the hair glide smoothly while you use this hair tool. A favorite by celebrity hair stylist Keith Campbell, this is one of the more affordable and effective flat irons we think you’ll love.

Besides being one of the prettiest flat irons around, this flat iron is designed to not only flat iron the hair, but also create curls and waves with its rounded shape. The iron beeps when ready, and goes into sleep mode after if unused for 30 minutes. The only downside is that there is no way to turn the heat up and down.


Agave Healing Vapor Iron, $150

What we love about this iron is that you can infuse the iron with oil before you apply the heat to your hair. This helps create an even disperse of moisture to your hair, preventing breakage and damage from the flat iron. We love this invention. Not only is it perfect for women with dry hair, it’s also perfect for women with natural hair who want to straighten their hair but also protect is as well.
