    I like what I have, a Karmin salon series styling iron because it gives me the option to either curl or make my hair really straight like a Japanese doll. Incidentally here in the UK the price for the Dafni is anything from £21 - £121, makes you wonder, mine is around £122 but it comes with a 3 year manufacturers guarantee.

    I would not suggest you to use hairs straightener directly without any medical consultation. You should first immediately head over to a hair specialist and explain your problem. He would surely be able to help you out and recommend you some hair products, rather than just targeting the hair straightener that could harm your hair.

    Can't give the above but here is another link that might be of some help to you : How To Straighten Hair Without Heat - Karmin Hair Tools I used the advice on how to curl hair without heat, it was great fun to do and it worked well! Enjoy.

    Only use GHD hair straighteners they seal the hair and hair doesn't burn it is safe to use and use a hair heat defence spray you can buy ghds online
    The other brands sizzle the hair badly

    I use a Karmin Salon Series hair straightener bought earlier this year but I have used the Karmin G3 Salon Pro since 2014 and I can assure you that my hair has not burnt or suffered any heat damage. I do agree with you that you must use a heat protectant prior to heat styling your hair, I use Pro Naturals Moroccan argan oil applied to damp hair before heat styling.

    I think you have to be careful not to say "Only use GHD hair straighteners they seal the hair and hair doesn't burn it is safe to use" and "The other brands sizzle the hair badly" because there are lots of heat styling tools and heat protectants that are safe to use, it is a matter of individual choice don't you think?

    Hi,
    Daily usage of hair straightner is not good to our hair.It leads to continuous hair falls.I think permanent hair straightening is better for you.

    Hi All,
    Instead of using hair straighteners, you can try this natural method to get ur hair straightened .Take a vessel and put 1/2 glass of milk into it and when it comes to boil add 1/2 Tspn of cornflour,1/2tspn of coconut milk and give it a nice mix n switch off the flame. Now u can add 1 tspn of aloeveragel n 1tspn of coconut oil into it n start applying it on ur hair starting from from the tip of ur hair.let it rest for 15-20mins n wash it with a shampoo n conditioner . Trust me guys it really works.For better results , repeat this process in every week of a month.

    Yeah my friend, it really works wen u apply it once in a week.The cornflour and the coconut milk gets absorbed into your hair n it gives straightened texture to ur hair. Plz do try for atleast one month n let me know ur feedback.
