Confession: Although we know about the damage that heating tools can cause our tresses, we spend quite a bit (okay, too much) time applying heat to our hair. In hopes of reducing breakage while still achieving silky smooth locks, we set out on a search to find the best flatirons for minimal hair damage.

We know foregoing hot tools a couple days a week will help our dehydrated strands, but we just can’t see ourselves giving up the frizz-taming, hair-smoothing magic that is the straightener. Instead of throwing away our beloved flatirons, we did the second-best thing and reached out to Honey Artists hairstylist Corey Tuttle for his expert advice on purchasing a flatiron that won’t completely fry our ends. To which Tuttle suggested looking for an iron that “has temperature settings so you can start low and work your way up if necessary.” Here, we’ve compiled the best straighteners for minimal hair damage. Keep reading for Tuttle’s recommendations as well as our personal favorites.
