Each of these models has the precise heat settings to cope with different lengths and textures of hair.

Each model has ceramic heating. That means a constant heat across the hair ironing plate. That is very important if you are trying to straighten long hair and avoid ironing in a crimp or wave.

You’ll also see that some of these hair straightening irons have ionic technology. That means, if you have fine hair, they can help counter frizzy or fly away hair.

And some of the top rated straighteners also have wider plates. That’s really useful if you have thicker or long hair. It helps you quickly and precisely iron along a tress of hair, locking in straightness and shine.

Heat settings on the best hair straighteners vary from around 150*C up to around 230*C. Hair can withstand these temperatures (and dry with a healthy shine) because straighteners are meant to be used with deliberate, smooth strokes along a tress of hair.

Best temperature settings by hair texture

Coloured/Damaged hair  c150*C
 
Wavy hair   160*C
 
Curly hair   180*C
 
Thick & curly hair    200*C 

Wider hair ironing plates can benefit people with long and/or long and thick hair. The wider plate irons a bigger area of hair to quickly dry and fix the style you desire.
