It is no secret that I have naturally straight hair. Well there was those times that I came up with the bright idea to get a perm, but I won’t go there. I don’t want to talk about curling my hair at the moment. I want to talk about straightening my hair.
So, you may be asking why I would need to straighten naturally straight hair. I didn’t think I needed to either. Until one day my Sister held me down and straightened my hair out with her flat iron. Okay, I asked her to. She done hers and her daughters and kept telling me that she would like to do mine. So while I am always afraid of using a lot of unnecessary heat and chemicals on my already damaged hair, I allowed her to straighten my hair.
The result was awesome! It felt longer, it felt smoother, It didn’t tangle near as easy as it normally did and sometimes does.
But, my problem was not being great at doing my own hair. I couldn’t take my Sister home with me. I did get a flat iron and attempt to try and do it myself, but I couldn’t do a great job, so my iron laid and collected dust. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
So then I started hearing about brush straighteners and I bought one at a discount. It did a decent job, but still not as great as I wanted it to.
Then I had the chance to review another brush iron. Did I want to do it or not? I thought why not. I had heard many good things about the product. In fact I went to Amazon and found the Beautonics Advanced Hair straightener Brush and I read the amazing reviews. Out of 89 reviews they had a 4.9 out of 5 star rating! Mainly positive reviews. I couldn’t wait to get mine!
My gold brush straightener came in and yes, it looked a lot like the other brush I owned. But it did have special features that I liked. Things like the design, the LCD Display, the plated cover and anti slip grip, the power button and temperature control buttons are nice and easily accessible.
While using this is simple, I loved that they included a chart with the temperatures suggest for each type of hair. For example my thick hair should be on about 210 to 230 C.
The brush itself is made of a nice silicone and feels good going through my hair. There is less chance of me getting burnt with this type of straightener compared to a flat iron.
For best results I like to use some type of oil such as keratin or coconut oil. Just a small amount. If you want you can clip up and do your hair layer by layer. It is as simple though as just brushing your hair. I also like to use the back of the brush and go over my whole head once I have brushed through it.
I have now learned that just because a product looks like another one, that each one is different. Some better then the others. I am glad I had a chance to experience this one and glad I can share it here with you!
