When it comes to hair straighteners, conventional wisdom holds the more you spend the better the product.
But with advances in technology, other more affordable options do the job just as well and for a fraction of the price.
The VS Sasson Wet & Dry Straightener, which costs a very reasonable $54.95, is a multitasking tool that can be used to straighten wet or dry hair.
The styling aid is a godsend for many as it puts an end to extra time spent blow drying hair.

So how does the wet and dry hair straightener work?
The VS Sassoon Wet & Dry straightener uses special technology so when you pass the tool through your hair, moisture escapes as steam and your hair becomes straight and smooth as it dries.
It also features adjustable heat control ranging from 140- 235 degrees which means it could effectively straighten even the coarsest or curliest of hair.

Those who’ve tried the styling tool and left comments on an Australian product review site have praised it for its effectiveness
One reviewer, Tanita who gave the VS Sassoon Wet & Dry straightener five stars out of five said the hair styling aid was a ‘stylish device’ and it works really well.
‘It heats up fast, has a convenient swivel cord of good length and the ceramic plates are easy and gentle on my hair. I love this hair straightener,’ she said.

Another, Zoe, also gave straighter five stars out of five, writing: ‘This straighter heats up incredibly fast and holds the heat very well.
‘It’s super easy to use and gives a great result. I am yet to find a fault with this straighter,’ she added.
While a third Aogi said it was the best straightener she’d tried so far.
‘I am very happy with the results. Thanks to it, I could straighten my hair right after washing my hair, after drying it a bit with a hair drier or let it dry naturally.’
On the downside, some noted the straightener didn’t quite deliver on all fronts
On the downside, some noted the straightener didn’t quite deliver on all fronts.
‘I’m not sure if its just mine but my hair gets caught in the grooves (plastic cap bit) at the very front of the plates unless you align it perfectly in the centre and have no strays,’ wrote one reviewer.
‘It’s definitely not a straightener you can just run over your hair for a quick smooth or finish…. it pulls and breaks the hair strands,’ she continued.
Another reviewer said the ‘straightener didn’t do it for me’ before explaining the iron left a kink in her short hair.
‘The iron gets extremely hot so you can’t touch the outer tong to curl as it’s too hot. However, it does heat up quickly which is a time saver.’
