Not sure if you are still looking for suggestions but I'll post one anyway. I use Remington S9500 Pearl. It's the best straightener I have ever had in my life. I straighten my hair every day because I don't like my curly, frizzy, half jamaican hair ><. It heats up SO quickly, takes seconds and it also lets you know with a beep sound when it's ready to use. I love the bag that comes with it, I always use it to put my straightener down on when I'm combing and styling in between. It's a bad boy. Cost me 166 USD at the time, but I live in Iceland so it's much more expensive here than in the US.
