If you’ve been blessed with Kim K-esque locks (long and thick that is), then you are one lucky girl. You can get Kim Kardashian’s hair without having to spend tons of time slaving away at straightening. The best hair straighter for ultra smooth, straight strands for your long, thick hair should heat up fast, protect hair from unnecessary damage and have an adjustable heat setting.
Remington Style Therapy Frizz Therapy Flatiron
This budget brand flat iron (it costs less than $50 as of press time) is one of the best for long, thick hair because it is able to protect tresses and fight frizz while straightening strands. This gadget actually coats hair strands with a heat-protective ingredient the moment it comes in contact with your hair, keeping hair safe from the heat.
T3 SinglePass Professional Straightening and Styling Iron
This “Allure” Best of Beauty award winner heats up ultra fast and straightens with ease. Although the name says "SinglePass," it may take more than one pass to straighten super thick hair. But the consistent temperature, lightweight (it weighs less than 1 lb.) design and adjustable heat setting make it one of the best.
Amika Slim Pro Styler Pure Silver 1-Inch Pro Styler
This tiny little flat iron packs a punch. Even though the plates are only an inch wide, you’ll only have to glide the iron over your hair once to get the sleek and smooth strands you desire. The Amika Slim Pro Styler comes in a variety of colors (pink, silver, black and gold) to suit your fancy.
Babyliss PRO Nano Titanium
This bad boy Babyliss is ideal for long, thick hair. Babyliss PRO uses Nano Titanium technology to keep hair as safe as possible while straightening. The plates are 1 ¼” wide and extra long, which is ideal for your long locks.
