Most women and some men would have owned at least one pair of hair straighteners at some point. With so many companies relying on overseas production, it can be difficult finding things that weren’t made in China. In this article, I’ll be looking for hair straighteners made in the USA.
Are There Any Companies That Sell Hair Straighteners Made in the USA? (The Short Answer)
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a single company that reliably manufactures hair straighteners in the USA. I did, however, find a couple of companies that often get confused as being American manufacturers. I also found one company that might produce hair straighteners in the USA.
There’s one company that might produce hair straighteners in the USA, but there was a lot of conflicting information about the company’s manufacturing locations.
FHI Heat is a well-known hair care company. It was founded in 2003 and it is a brand used by salons, celebrities, and pretty much everyone else too! The company has also won numerous awards over the years for its high-quality hair care products making it a real stand-out company.
As for its manufacturing, things got a little complicated. The company doesn’t give out that much information on its website regarding where its products are made. I couldn’t find out exactly where its products are made, but here’s what I found.
I found several sales sites selling FHI Heat’s products. Some of them state that they have been made in the USA on them and others originate from China. Since I couldn’t find any concrete proof from the company directly, it gets an honorable mention. If any readers have more details on FHI Heat and its manufacturing then please let us know via the comment section below.
Hair Straighteners That Are Mistaken as Being Made in America
As mentioned above, I found some companies that get mistaken as being American manufacturers. It must be said that the misinformation doesn’t seem to be coming from the companies directly but from independent third-party sources. Here’s what I found.
Paul Mitchell is a well-known American hair care brand that sells everything from shampoos and hair mousse to hair dryers and, of course, hair straighteners. I came across several third-party sites stating that the company manufactures its hair straighteners in the USA. However, upon closer inspection, this doesn’t seem to be the case.
While it’s true that Paul Mitchell does conduct some of its manufacturing within the US, this only applies to its various shampoos and hair care creams. As for its electronic products, it looks like they are all made in China.
I found this information thanks to Ethical Elephant. Ethical Elephant did a really deep dive into whether or not the production of the company’s products involves animal cruelty. In its investigation, Someone at Ethical Elephant contacted the company to ask about its manufacturing locations. See the response below.
So, as you can see, Paul Mitchell’s electrical products are all seemingly manufactured in China.
Bionic offers salon-quality hair dryers and straighteners. While it is based in the USA, I could find no evidence of it manufacturing its products within the US despite a handful of third-party sources claiming otherwise.
After several third-party sources claimed that Bionic is an American manufacturer, I decided to contact the company directly. After asking a representative where the company’s hair straighteners are made I was told that most of its hair straighteners are manufactured in China.
I think that these third-party websites may be confusing a headquarters as a manufacturing location since it has a US-based HQ. But, Bionic’s hair straighteners are not American-made.
