We love colors, and so do the folks at HerStyler company. They make their straighteners in a wide variety of colors. HerStyler, founded in 2003 in Southern California they are passionate about style and fashion.

Not only are these hair straighteners eye-catching, but they are also a way of expressing our individuality. The standard black flat iron may not convey your true creative nature.

Salon -quality, fashion-forward Flat Irons at affordable prices is their motto.

If you want to keep your style cutting edge, you need to make sure your tools are cutting edge as well.

    • Which is better aluminum or ceramic hair straightener

     Best Answer:  Ceramic hair straightener

    • In ceramic hair straighteners, the plates are made of ceramic materials. Ceramic protects your hair because it emits gentle infra-red heat, helping lock in moisture and prolong hair color. The one I purchased has worked flawlessly till now.
    • From being told quite bluntly by my girlfriend, Ceramic ones do the job better and cause less damage to your hair. My girlfriend has very naturally curly hair and it's only ceramic ones that straighten her hair properly.
    • Ceramic plates are natural minerals that won't damage your hair, will actually make hair smooth, shiny, refined and you will have fantastic healthy hair! Once you've used a ceramic iron you will NEVER go back to conventional aluminum!!
    • Ceramic is much better than aluminum. The ceramic protects your hair from heat and runs down your hair smoothly.
    • aluminum ones can catch on the hairs and tear them out.

    Sorry, I DON’T  entirely agree with Yahoo on this one.

    The HerStlyer Aluminum Flat iron plates are coated with tourmaline.

    In addition, the floating plates make it snag-free 

    Aluminum is an excellent heat conductor and cools quickly. It’s lightweight and strong. 

    Ceramic heats up slower and retains the heat longer. Ceramic also tends to break more easily when dropped.

    This particular aluminum flat iron is a good choice since you can regulate the heat setting.

    • easy-grip handle
    • One-touch button
    • 5 Adjustable Heat settings:
      • 160F
      • 180F
      • 200F
      • 220F
      • 230F


    • Can change the heat setting accidentally while brushing your hair
    • May not heat up enough for certain hair types

    In Conclusion

    Because HerStyler hair straighteners are low priced, they lack features such as :

    • Auto-shutoff
    • Very few are genuinely digitally heat controlled.
    • No travel pouches included.

    A significant benefit is that they back their products with a 1yr mfg warranty if you buy from a recognized dealer and register your tool online.

    All are Ionic, which makes hair smoother.

    Heats up well and works on ALL hair types make sure you keep the heat as low as possible for your hair type.
