Meet your new go-to multi-tool, the straightening brush. These creative, amazing tools are what they sound like: electric brushes that pull double-duty at the same time, evenly and quickly distributing heat to create a perfectly straight hairstyle faster than you could ever do it by hand. The best part? They make straightening your hair a breeze. Here's how they work:
Straightening brushes come in two formats: with temperature settings and without. If you have straight hair but prefer your stylist's touch to be as close to your own as possible, then you will want to choose a straightening brush with temperature settings. This allows you to choose the exact temperature range that works best for your own follicles. For example, if you are short and thin, your heat setting might be low while those on the longer side could be set on the high side. This way, your hair will be straightened as close to your own as possible in the safest and most effective way.
You may also choose a straightening brush without temperature settings because this option is designed to create a smoother, more professional hairstyle by applying more pressure to your strands. You can use these with any iron, including a hair curling iron or a curling iron with ceramic rods. You'll notice that you can press down on the rod and get a more intense curl or you can allow the iron to create more of a gentle "smooth" look. Either way, you'll be amazed at how much better your hair looks. If you wish, you may receive a "smooth" haircut while still maintaining some curl.
Temperature settings are used with straightening brushes to regulate the temperature of the brush and the hair. High-temperature bristles are great for straightening long, curly or wavy strands. On the other hand, low temperature bristles are best suited for shorter hair, creating a very smooth style. The low temperature setting is best for those with coarse or straight hair who'd like to achieve a very low maintenance style. It also allows the user to add more heat if necessary, which can help prevent the frizz caused by heated appliances.
There are many different types of flat irons for hair. Each has its own unique features including temperature, styling options and heating options. Some of the most popular include: ceramic, tourmaline, titanium and Sedu flat irons. They are all known for being incredibly safe and delivering impressive results when it comes to straightening hair. However, there is no one best brand for everyone; what works best for one person may not be right for you.
You want your straightening brush to be as safe as possible so you get the smoothest and shiny results possible. The safest option is a ceramic straightening brush which is especially good at protecting you from burning your hair. Also consider the number of heating settings, heat exhaustion and speed of heat delivery so you get the best possible straightening experience every time. And if you are looking for a straightener with multiple heat settings, look for a product that offers fast heat up times and multiple heat settings.
