Paul Mitchell Express Ion Smooth 125 1.25" Ionic Hair Straightening Iron
I don't know how I have survived all these years without using Paul Mitchell's hair straightener. I have always used different Revlon models but they all probably damaged my hair more than anything. My first encounter with this Paul Mitchell Hair Straighter was at the hair salon. I've never heard of this particular model but I loved what it did to my hair; made it super silky without drying it out from the heat. My hair stylist told me that this model is actually not available for sale to consumers since it was made especially for hair salon professionals. Luckily, my begging and pleading worked and my hair stylist helped me purchase this from her supplier. Since then, I have never parted with this baby. This is honestly the BEST hair straightener I have ever used in my life. This straightener is so effective it only takes me about 5min to fix my hair in the morning because I don't need to keep going over the same strand over and over again.

My hair is naturally straight but because of my layered haircut, it is usually a bit wavy if I don't straighten it. My hair is actually very damaged and dry from hair dyes. Here you will see the before and after.
BEFORE: Hair is air dried but you can obviously see how dry it is and a bit rough looking
AFTER: Hair is completely smooth and silky... and also no more fly-aways!
Another after, here you can see that this straightener can also provides volume.
