We know it in our hearts. A bad hair day hurts more than a bad break-up. Don’t we try (and love) to style our hair different ways to never have to deal with one. Straightening your hair (and those annoying fly-aways), aiming for big bouncy curls, cute small ringlets or just gorgeous slight waves is easier when you have the right tools.
But don’t let the price tags dishearten you.
If the possible burn in your pocket worries you more than the possible burn in your locks, we got your back girls. We have found you five cheap (and GOOD QUALITY!) curling irons and hair straighteners that are well within your budget. We love your hair as much as you do, promise.
1. Vega Long Curl Hair Curling Iron
This Vega Curl Iron will be your new bestie whether you want vintage curls, tight curls or just flowy waves. It comes armed with a ceramic coated plate and a barrel length of 210 mm and a diameter of 22 mm.
It will create thick curls without any crimps as you can hold the hair tight with a clamp. It also has a cool insulated tip to hold while shaping the hair.
It comes with an LCD display along with adjustable button to set the temperature between 80 – 230 degree Celsius.
It is better suited for long curls and might be a little difficult to use for shorter hair because of the barrel length, though.
Otherwise priced at INR 2000, grab it on Amazon at a discounted price of INR 1340 right now.
2. Philips HP8302 Essential Selfie Straightener
This compact straightener is your perfect travel companion when you want to smoothen out your bangs before you head out.
The ceramic plates glide smooth and protect your hair from heat. It heats up fast (in 60 seconds) and the temperature is set at a standard 210 degree Celsius. Unfortunately, it does not come with a temperature control.
It is great for travel, for straightening shorter hair and for a quick touch up.
You can grab yours here at a steal (INR 1068) discounted from the original at INR 1295 (which isn’t that bad either).
3. Havells HC4031 Chopstick Hair Curler
You probably didn’t know that Havells makes hair styling products (and we don’t blame you), so this might be a surprise in the list.
This ultra-smooth, light weight wonder is super flexible to use for different hair types and styles. Its advanced heating technology makes it heat up in just 60 seconds (saving you time!), and an LED indicator alerts that the curler is working.
The extra skinny ceramic coated barrel is great for corkscrew curls (à-la 80’s chic). It makes the hair slide smooth, distributes heat evenly and comes with a cool insulated tip for protection while styling and a safety stand. 360 degree rotation makes wire tangling horrors a thing you won’t have to be worried about. Set the temperature to an optimum of 190 degree Celsius for best results.
For its stylish design, being light weight, user friendly-ness and advanced heating technology, we sure give it a double thumbs-up.
Priced at INR 2195 (a little on the higher side, but totally worth it), it is available at a discounted rate of INR 1599 at Amazon right now (Open that new tab right now!)
4. Corioliss Travel Hot Brush
If you aren’t up for a straightening iron or poker straight hair and just want to tame frizz to get smoother hair, this one is perfect for you. This hot brush is travel friendly and has heat protective bristles which double up as a massager as you work it on your hair.
It is developed with a fast heat up time and maintains a consistent temperature of 180 degree Celsius.
