Does the job!!
First things first. I needed a hair straightener. I say it's pricey cuz I'm not well off like some. But it was colorful and I had funds to splurge on myself for once. And hey if they didn't offer a refund for things I didn't like, I wouldn't get it. Second, I travel enough, that the only time I have to style my hair, is to just throw it up in a ponytail. But now I can get up, turn this brush on and straighten and curl my hair inward like I want. And I'm on my way.
My hair type: Asian type hair. Short length hair(a bob) It's naturally straight(not pin straight) but will bend and shape into whatever it wants because I sleep crazy.
DOES NOT replace your straight iron!
I used after a shower and blew dry my hair and used volumizing heat protectant spray. Fell apart after I woke up the next day.
One day old hair(hair unwashed) It straightened(NOT pin straight) and left my bed hair styled. As in, it was still volumized and bouncy. Depending on how healthy/unhealthy your hair is, shininess and frizziness might end up with different results. And DO NOT expect it to be pin straight. It's just a straightener, not a flat iron. Yes, it heats up fast like a flat iron. No, it DOES NOT flatten it like a flat iron. And yes, hair does fall out. But that's perfectly normal because that is a natural body occurrence. For me at least. Don't take my word for it.
Trust me. If there was a way to test it out before you commit. I would do that. But health hazards. I get it. It is pricey but I love it. So it's worth it. For me.
Make your own review and try it.
I really wanted to love it....
Let me begin by saying that I really like Dry Bar and swear by their buttercup blow dryer and their wrap party curling wand... That is what made me want to try the brush crush so badly and what led me to make excuses for this sub-par product for over a month before I finally gave in and returned it. I have thick slightly wavy hair that I have been blow drying and straightening for years. The brush crush does straighten your hair, however, it is way slower than a normal flat Iron and took me several passes to straighten any piece of hair. I also had to brush very slowly for it to be effective. The firm outer bristles hurt when you use the brush facing down (like an actual hairbrush). And when you use it facing downwards the hair doesn't actually get up in the brush where the heat is so it doesn't straighten. Instead, you have to use the brush facing upwards and then use your other hand to place a section of hair across the brush and hold your section of hair taught while you slide the brush down. This means that this requires two hands and is no easier than a regular flat iron. Also, you can't effectively get the baby hair that frame your face. I tried so hard to love this product but ultimately it is more complicated than the tool it is intended to replace.
Fast with great results
Bought for my daughter. Her hair is extremely thick and wavy in certain parts. It's also down to her waist. I did her hair in 10-15 minutes. Used the fry bar shine spray after. Looks beautiful.
So worth it!
I've tried several other hot brushes that claim to reach similar heat temps. They are cheaper, and it shows in that they cannot hold that temperature. I finally but the bullet at got this one, and this cuts my styling time in half! Also, I have inflammation in my wrists, and fingers so this allows me to eliminate having to blowout my hair before styling! I still have volume, and I use a straightener after to create waves, or to straighten it even more. I have thick, curly, non-course hair. Love this thing!
Perfect for what I wanted
Awesome keeps my hair smooth
Not the Best
I bought a few different hot brushes on the same day and this one delivered the least. It didn't really straighten or get rid of my frizz. I had to go over each section again and again to even see the slightest bit of difference. It also ripped more hair out than I'd like. I returned and would not recommend no matter what hair type.
It's expensive, but it's worth it.
I can let my very wavy hair air dry. Then in less than five minutes of using this brush my hair is silky smooth and ready to go. It's a time saver!
