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.
How do hair straightening brushes work?
Like a flat iron, a hair straightening brush makes use of heated ceramic plates to gently lay lifted hair cuticles flat, creating smoother and sleeker strands. Unlike a flat iron, 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. Basically, hair straightening brushes detangle and straighten your hair at the same damn time. Plus, these two-in-one stylers are made with different heat settings and bristle heads to suit all hair textures. (And no matter what, you should always be using a heat protectant!)
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.
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.

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...)
At a very appealing price point, this tourmaline ionic version has a cheery color palette and one fun little bonus feature: The brush remembers the last heat that it was set to, meaning once you've found the sweet spot between smoothing and scorching, you can return to it with ease time and time again.
Trust me: Wide paddle brushes will cut your styling sessions in half. This brush can hit so much of your hair at once with its diamond-infused ceramic plates, which doesn't just sound fancy—it also works to unravel kinks in no time.

Tugging and pulling at your hair with poorly made brushes is only going to result in hair loss and damage. All brush bristles are not created equal, but this guy have an anti-static coating and a cool tip feature for the smoothest, heat-safe glide ever.
