Here is my story.I have had quite long curly hair and all my life I have been straightening it. First, I used to do it with a blow dryer and a simple comb; just like many other girls. Soon, my hair became dull and began to split because the blow dryer made it too dry. You are probably wondering if I tried any special thermal protection sprays. Indeed, I used various sprays, but they never gave the results that their respective manufacturers promised. Meanwhile, my hair was still splitting and still looked dull. Besides, all of those products cost a lot of money.

Once, a friend told me about flat irons. When I first tried one, I liked the result: my hair seemed straighter than after a blow drying. Moreover, it appeared to not be too dry, and it tended to split less. But, there was a new problem – styling process took about an hour. Every morning I had to get up at dawn, wasting too much time in front of the mirror. I tried to style my rebellious mane before going to work. It was awful.

And one evening, I saw on TV… a straightening brush. I was aware of flat irons before I purchased one, but this was something new and unusual for me.

 

However, I became interested in the very idea of it. I shared my thoughts with friends. After much discussion, we came to the realization that we could not choose the best one and ended up ordering different brushes from different manufacturers. Later, while we were discussing our new purchases, an idea popped into my head – we must share our experiences with other customers. We made a list of the best brushes. Each of us wrote a hair brush review telling of the specific features of the respective brands.

The Popular Questions

Here are the most popular questions. You can read a short answer or continue your research by clicking on the appropriate link. Also, feel free to ask any questions in the Q&A section.

What is a hair straightening brush?

Actually, this straightening tool has the form of a brush. More precisely, it is a combination of a flat iron and a scalp massager. It straightens and styles the hair while you simply brush it. Almost all tools have and ionization function. Negatively charged ions emerge when a heating element heats up. These ions provide a beneficial effect to hair and improve its look.

What features should I take into account when choosing?

At first glance, all of these models appear to be quite similar and you can assume there is no need to examine each of them in detail. This is a misguided judgment. They have various head shapes (rectangular, oval), speeds, maximum temperatures, etc. Read our hair brush straightener buying guide here, if you look for a full description of features and comparison tables.

How to use an electric brush?

Plug the straightener in, and select the appropriate temperature. Separate hair into locks and comb them thoroughly. Then, do the same using the tool. The end result is that you will get smooth, perfectly straight locks as well as an excellent mood for a whole day. I think it will be useful for you to read a detailed instruction on how to straighten your hair without damaging it using an electric brush.

Are high temperatures harmful?

As I mentioned previously, I have learned from my experience that high temperatures during hairstyling made my hair dull and caused split ends. So, be very careful when choosing the temperature.

Also, consider your hair type. If you still do not know what yours is, then read how to figure out your hair type in this article.

Why is it better than a flat iron?

First and foremost, this is the time expenditure: I spend 40-50 minutes for styling with a flat iron, and only 15 minutes with a brush. 15 minutes vs. 50 minutes? The choice is obvious! Another important advantage is that when you style with a brush, you do not press it tightly by hot plates, so the negative impact of high temperatures is minimal. Read a more detailed comparison of straightening comb vs flat iron.

How much does it cost?

The prices range from $18 to $150 depending on the set of functions and the materials that they are made of. If this is going to be your first one, you can start with a good but cheap hair straightener (look this category). Keep in mind that cheap does not always mean bad. If you are a more advanced user, then you will likely want to upgrade to a professional straightening brush (look here). Which, of course, is more expensive but has more functions.

Can I use it for kids?

Of course, you can! In this case, pay attention to models that feature an anti-scald design. The surface of the brush must not become hot during styling. Also, there should be protective bristles at the edge of a head. We have created a category with safety hair straighteners for kids.

I can even use it every day if I want to without all the hassle of the blow dryer or the flat iron. I just brush my locks and it’s done! And it becomes silky soft too. It’s a game changer!  What are you waiting for? My advice: go get it!  About Luma, Nina

My hair is  thick, frizzy, slightly wavy, and this works fantastic on it.
I usually don’t wear my hair down because I hate blow druing.  But I go to the gym 4 times a week, so I have to wash it often, or use dry shampoos… I ran this brush through my hair and it was straight in 10 minutes. It also keeps the volume I had at the roots from sleeping with wet hair. This is my new favorite hair tool. I think we are going to be great friends! About FemJolie, Ann
