Fine hair is not a problem if you know how to style it, and choosing the right hair tools for you is the best start. This is our guide to the standout straighteners for fine hair.

Just because you have fine hair, it doesn't mean you have fewer hairs on your scalp than those with thicker locks. Fine hair actually refers to the diameter of each strand. In fact, the chances are if you have fine hair, you're likely to have more hair strands than those with other hair types, because your scalp can fit in more of them.

Because each of the strands is thinner you don’t want to apply too much heat to the hair, plus chances are your hair is mostly straight anyway, you may need to just tame flyaway hairs or fight some frizz. With that said, here are the hair tools we think would be best for your fine locks.

Let's take a look at the best straighteners for fine hair in 2017.

Panasonic Nanoe Hair Straightener

The Pansonic brand is synonymous with high-quality technology and their latest developments in hair tools most definitely doesn’t disappoint. With five temperature settings, you can choose the right one for your hair. The lowest temperature is just 150°C which is ideal for those with fine hair because you don’t want to frazzle your locks.

Not only is the varying temperatures a great design point of the Panasonic Nanoe hair straightener, but the moisturising nanoe particles also give your hair a soft and hydrated look, no one wants dry, crispy hair after they’ve used heat on it.

ghd Platinum Styler 

The ghd Platinum styler is the top straightener from the brand, designed with tri-zone technology that’s designed to only benefit your hair. The downside is ghd straighteners only come with one temperature, a temperature that ghd scientists have said is the optimum temperature for styling your locks. But the tri-zone technology ensures that this temperature is maintained across the entire plate whilst you style, so there are no varying heat spots which cause damage to your hair. Maintaining this heat helps reduce hair breakage by over 50%, plus it also increases shine. So while it might only have one temperature, the fact that it guarantees this one temperature at all times, is actually better for your hair’s health.
