With so many hair tools on the market it can be daunting task to find the right tool to tame your tresses. One step into a hair aisle and you’re down a rabbit hole of styling tools that promise you everything under the sun - from sleek hair in 10 seconds flats, to shiny bouncy curls for days - sometimes it can all seem overwhelming. But I’m here to help!
I just discovered the Simply Straight™ ceramic hair straightening brush. This bad boy combines the power of salon heat straightening (up to 450°) with the gentle styling ability of a brush to make straightening hair as easy as brushing it! I was so excited to try it I called on my hair model (AKA my daughter) to help test it out. She has straight to wavy hair, but just like her mama, she has a serious case of the frizz, so this tool is perfect for her.
What I love about it is that it’s simple to use and straightforward. It heats up in seconds and its bristles are coated which makes to the straightening process gentler and safer than a regular flat-iron. In fact, I would feel more comfortable letting my daughter style her own hair with this brush, than I would with a flat iron. But the bristles still get very hot so I would definitely use caution using it.
For best results, use Simply Straight™ on dry hair and use it slowly, allowing it to really work on the strands. I was able to style her hair completely in less than 10 minutes – even with her thick hair! (For comparison, it takes me 15 minutes or more to do it with a flat iron.) Making this tool a great option for the morning rush, or for those who would like to shave off some time from their straightening routine. I will say that if you’re looking for pin-straight hair this might not be the right option for you. I think it work bests for those who looking to make their hair manageable, and straightening their hair without flattening or eliminating volume. Overall, I was impressed with its ease and quickness. I was able to get her hair from hot mess to frizz-free in a matter of minutes, and that is nothing to sneeze at!
