I remember my first flat iron. I bought it in CVS in sixth grade, and my hair would snag and fry on the metal plates. Still, it gave me pin straight Baby Spice hair, so I thought it was worth it. Now, I don't agree. Thankfully, the best wet to dry straighteners have come a long way since those days, and are now designed to minimize damage and over-drying. That way, all the modern-day kids never have to look back on their lives and say, "Damn; I wish I didn't fry my hair back when I had no idea what I was doing."
Straightening wet hair used to mean endless split ends and tons of frizz, but no longer. Innovative advancements like far infrared light, ceramic tourmaline, negative ions, and steam vents now mean that you can dry and style your hair simultaneously, and with minimal damage. Best of all, your selection is way more extensive than your average drug store. These wet to dry straighteners come at all different price points, so buying one doesn't mean burning a whole straight through your wallet.
Whether you're short on time, not great with styling brushes, or have a lifelong vendetta against blow dryers, these flat irons that dry while they straighten are sure to save your precious time in the morning.
