I'm hoping to get one for Christmas but am confused with so many on the market. I use a straightener if I want straight hair but are these good for a more controlled curl or wave?
And brand suggestions please
Thanks in advance
I was given an inStyler one (from myer) for christmas and it works okay. Honestly I was hoping for better results.
I have a lot of hair so I guess that is part of the problem, it does take away some of the frizz but I don't think it works as well as a straightener and is only a little bit faster.
The other annoying thing about this particular one is that the on/off button is on the side where your hand rests when you are brushing so I keep turning it off as I am using it!
My advice would be to try and test one out - either a friends or at hair house to see how it works for your hair!
I'm a bit wary about straightening brushes, especially since a lot of places advertise on fb and do weird jump cuts from a very curly mane-one brush through with the straightening brush-to completely straight hair. I'm a bit worried about wasting money but I'd like to get one for uni to keep my hair under control. Has anyone found a brand that they trust to work? And what's your hairtype if it did work?
I was very skeptical of these hair straightening brushes after seeing them pop up across all my social media apps. I had put it down to a pointless fad.
However, my mum bought me the Hairstyla Ceramic Straightening Brush for Christmas this year and I must say I LOVE IT!! I think it cost around $100.
The brush is black with rose gold, and looks and feels beautiful. It is easy to use and straightens my hair much better than I thought it would have. I have long wavy hair and used the brush on 180 degrees, but the brush can go up to 230 degrees so I assume it would be as effective on all hair types.. The brush heats up in 30 seconds, is 'anti-scalding' as none of the heating plates are accessible, and has a 60-minute power shut off feature which I think is genius!!
I would definitely recommend trying a straightening brush. However if you are hesitant you might be best off going somewhere where you can try it before you buy. I know my local shaver shop has 'demonstrations'/let's you use the product prior to buying.
I tried my friends one (apologies, I don't remember the brand!!)
Don't get me wrong, they are a seriously good idea, however, I really wasn't a fan!!! I kept touching my scalp with the ends of the brush which burnt my head. I tried so many different ways to use it and nothing make me feel comfortable...
I think I'll stick to my straighteners... I just can't handle the idea of using the brush!
Oh that sounds bloody horrible! My hairstyla (picture above) is 'anti-scalding', I literally tried to touch every hot part and couldn't. I actually think it's a really great idea for kids because of this. If you want to try again maybe look for an anti-scalding one :)
I have tried this and I'm not a huge fan. II had to go over each section of hair a few times t o actually get the effect of my normal straightner

My mum bought one from the Good Guys and my sister used it on her super tight ringlet hair, it works so well. Her hair was super straight and didn't burn like normal straighteners.
I have heard mixed reviews on these, mostly negative so I'm not sure, I think I'll stick to my ghd straightener as I know it works a treat for straightening, instead of splurging money for a product that might not work
I got given one for my birthday a few years ago, it's a wet to dry one (cannot remember the name) and it works wonders when you can't be bothered straightening your hair and, want a more natural look
I actually saw an ad for one of them and I was tempted to buy once myself. I'm not too sure if it burns your hair and makes it dry.
I have one and it doesn't do much for my hair unfortunately. I have very thick coarse hair though so might be better in fine hair.
I just bought myself a TNS hair straightening brush and I love it! I used to use a ceramic plate hair straightener and it would take about an hour to straighten my thick, curly hair and I was a sweating, tired mess by the end of it. With this brush I had my hair straight in under 10 mins and I loved how it remained full rather than straight and lifeless. I wouldn't have believed it if the salesperson hadn't demonstrated it on my hair. That convinced me to buy it. Highly recommend it!
I have a hairstyla. Or I had a hairstyla ( I’ve leant it to someone and it hasn’t come back yet) . I have wavy to curly and frizzy hair. I am a great fan. I have yet to burn myself and I can straighten my hair in about 10 minutes. It does not get it dead straight like you would in a salon. But it is easier, so much easier, than the hairdryer or the straightening iron so as long as you don’t mind the fuller look then I would recommend them. The only thing with the hairstyla is the location of the temp control button. It does get in the way. If you know someone who has one then drop some heavy hints and see if she (or he) will let you borrow it.
As a hairdresser, I personally wouldn't recommend these to my clients as it can sometimes lead to mechanical damage on the hair if not used the exact way or in the exact manner which was tested by their scientists in the lab.
If you are definitely wanting to try it, 100% invest in some PROFESSIONAL quality heat protector as that will be the make-or-break when it comes to your locks.
Also, I would avoid this if you are a blonde or scalp bleach as this may cause excessive breakage around the hairline if overused.
Hope that helps lovely ladies <3

I've been wanting to know if they are any good too. My hairdresser has one but rarely uses it. She said its easier to use a normal straightener and the normal straightener has more effect than the straightener brush. Can only try everyone is different and it might just work for you. Let us know how you go
Hi Bobby-Lee. The hairdryer method and the straightener iron definitely give better results. But they take so long and then my arms ache. I can never do a good blow dry. I get kinks in the hair and can never do the back of my head properly but the professionals know the technique of stretching the hair so yes the results are better at a hair salon but if you are like me then a brush is a lot easier. There are some cheaper ones on the market for about $30.
I bought a Remington straightening hair brush for a friends birthday. She was super excited as she didn't have one. I only gave it to her the other day, am hoping it works ok for her.
Elucent Anti Ageing Gentle Cleanser is packaged in a 140g sturdy plastic bottle with a pump top dispenser for easy dispensing and comes with a protective lid.
This was another excellent quality brush from Nude by Nature, this time the finishing brush.
This was a great quality mineral brush from Nude by Nature. It is nice to hold in the hand and makes it really easy to apply mineral powder foundation out of the pot.
Good afternoon beauties,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well! :)
