I have a CHI straightener and was recently informed that the ELLA straightener was better. I have thick coarse wavy hair and use my straightener daily. What type of straightener would be best, I know there are numerous brands out there!
I have the same hair issue as you and tried many professional straightners and love, love the Sedu Revolution (at Folica). It works wonders and you only need one swipe through each section for shiny, smooth hair. I took it to my hairdresser and now she recommends it to others. I have owned it for two years with no issues and it came with a neat heat-proof pad.
