With all the options out there, it can be nearly impossible to choose the right iron for you.

For thin hair though, your best option is almost always going to be an adjustable temperature setting so you can change it to suit your particular thickness of hair.

Happy choosing !!​

    I am not happy with the chi because i feel it pulls my hair and takes too many swipes to straighten each strand do you recommend a straightener that would straighten and add shine in a shorter period of time?
