Today I have a review of the new Straightening Brush from Conair Canada that was sent to me via the lovely folks at Brill Communications (Thank You!).
The Conair Straightening Brush is a heated paddle brush with ceramic technology – which is supposed to reduce damage and increase shine, and is said to be capable of smoothing and straightening in one pass. It heats up really quickly (to 375 F / 190 C) and is fairly easy to use. The paddle brush has both nylon and ceramic coated bristles.
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you will know that my hair is fairly long – about bra strap length in the back, thick, wavy and very prone to frizz. Despite this, I try to limit my use of heated tools – no daily use of blow dryers, flat irons or curling wands. That isn’t to say that I never use them, I actually own several heated tools.
My hair in its natural state – taken varying summer humidity conditions so you can see how wavy / thick / unruly my hair is:
The first time I used the Straightening Brush I just used it the same way that I would brush my hair to see how my hair would react instead of taking the time and following the step by step instructions. As you can see in the photo below, it smoothed the frizz and turned my hair into smoother waves and much less frizz. I always get a bit of frizz around the top of my head no matter what, which can easily be controlled with a bit of anti-frizz hair goop.
I’ve mostly been using the Straightening Brush to tame frizz and smooth out my waves instead of straightening my hair as my hair is so thick that it looks weird fully straightened.
All in all, I think that the Straightening Brush works well for smoothing and taming frizz. Once I get my hair cut and more layers added in, I’ll try using it to fully straighten my hair – and will have a subsequent blog post.
Have you tried this one? Or a similar hair tool?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! Thanks also to Conair Canada / Brill Communications! ❤
