The Best Hair Straightening Brushes That Are Actually Game-Changing

Marsha Brady could never.

What if I told you that there's a styling product that dropped from the heavens to save you time and money on blowouts? Get ready to love me forever, my friend, because after reading this I have faith you'll make the right decision and choose to own a hair straightening brush. It's a brush that can do both. A lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets, but it's a hair tool.

Hair straightening brushes detangle and straighten your hair at the same damn time. These two-in-one stylers are made with different heat settings and bristle heads to suit all hair textures. How do they work, you ask, as you gently pick your chin up off the ground? Well, like a flatiron, a hair straightening brush makes use of heated ceramic plates to gently lay lifted hair cuticles flat, creating smoother and sleeker strands. Unlike a flatiron, though, a hair straightening brush is somewhat less damaging—you're just using one plate instead of two—and creates a breezier sort of finish, not a fried and overly stiff vibe.

If you're questioning the legitimacy of a hair straightener brush, I get it, I really do—but once you try one of these game-changers, you'll never go back to skepticism again. To keep your hair straight, sleek, and shiny, cop one of these fifteen legit hair straightening below to save you the stress of running to the salon.

The Moisture-Inducing Brush
Polished Perfection Straightening Brush 2.0

I'm in love with the way Amika's Silk Wrap Styler transforms my course curls into silky smooth strands in seconds. So it's only right that this straightening brush follows suit. Using iRed beam technology, which allows heat to penetrate deeper into the hair cuticle to preserve moisture, these ceramic bristles keep dryness at bay.

This Universal Choice
Smooth Style Ceramic Heated Brush
Moroccanoil sephora.com

There are two things we like about this sturdy unit. First, cool-tip bristles mean that the piping hot ceramic plate is at no risk of scalding your scalp. Second, the beveled edge is also heated, meaning that smoothing your roots is actually possible. (Raise your hands if you've ever had springy roots and smooth strands with regular flat irons...)

The nine-foot cord and swivel base means that I can plug into my awkwardly placed outlet with ease, and then straighten to my hair's content, no pulling, tugging, or unfortunate unplugging required.

The Frizz Eliminating Brush
Rose Gold Straightening Brush
FoxyBae ulta.com

Science suggest thats the ions released from these tourmaline plates can work over time to condition and smooth your strands. I am not a atomic physicist and can't personally confirm that claim, but what I will say is that the very precise heat adjustments–the digital display can be set between 365F to 450F—are ideal for non-damaging and efficacious de-frizzing every time.
