Good morning! Today I’m showing you the results of this MiroPure Hair Straightener Brush I bought from amazon a couple of weeks ago. It looks like a normal brush with wider-than-normal spaced plastic bristles. Each bristle has a heating element that heats the hair as you brush through it.
I was skeptical when I first heard about these brushes; I have incredibly thick hair that is wavy when air-dried, and I wasn’t sure if this brush was up to the task. The reviews on amazon had testimonies from many different hair types, including kinkier thick African American hair, and the vast majority of them were positive. I decided to take the plunge and see if it could do anything.
Here is a picture of my hair when it is air-dried. It has waves of varying intensity across my head, and tends to be frizzy.
Here is my hair after brushing it thoroughly (which needs to be done before using the straightening brush– your hair should be free of tangles!)
And this is about 90 seconds of slow-speed brushing on my right side later:
Pretty amazing for only a minute and a half!! The other side took slightly longer because it has more hair, but I’d say about 4 minutes for my entire head (as opposed to 30 minutes with a flat iron, where I have to separate layers of my hair and do them sequentially from bottom to top layer). The final result is below:
I absolutely love it for a total of 4 minutes worth of work. You should keep in mind that this is NOT the same look as a flatiron; if you’re looking for a way to get your hair pin-straight, you should invest the time and energy in straightening it with a flatiron. However, if you’re looking for a super quick and easy way to make your frizzy or curly hair pretty straight while maintaining the volume, this is a great way to go.
I have noticed that it gets progressively frizzier and less straight as the humidity hits it throughout the day, so my next adventure will be finding a good finishing creme to keep it this polished.
Overall, I give it a 9/10 for what it claims to do– highly recommended!
