Simply Straight Straightening Brush Review and Giveaway

For as long as I can remember, I've suffered from frizzy hair. I always liked straightening my hair, but I never liked the idea of applying that much heat with the clamp and it took too much time to fit into my schedule on a regular basis. I was recently sent a Simply Straight to review (and one to give away) and thought I'd share my thoughts with you. 

Background info: The Simply Straight is a ceramic straightening brush that provides a revolutionary way to straighten and smooth all types of hair in minutes, without flattening, frying or damaging tresses. Perfectly straightens hair fast and easy! It combines the power of salon heat straightening up to 450° with the gentle styling ability of a brush to make straightening hair as easy as brushing it. The unique ceramic-wrapped bristles easily detangle and lift hair at the root to evenly deliver gentle heat around every strand, for straight, healthy, shiny hair that’s manageable and loaded with volume. It has adjustable temperatures for specific hair types and heats up to the ideal temperature in seconds.The Simply Straight™ brush heats up fast and has an “auto shut off” feature that activates after 60 minutes of power.

First Impressions: 
My first thought was "wow this thing is fast!" Once I plugged it in and turned it on, it heated up in seconds! It was insanely fast! The temperature is auto set at 350° when you turn it on, but changes in 20° increments with the + or - buttons. I tried this brush with the bristles both facing down and up, and I found that brushing from underneath the hair with the bristles pointing up is a way better method. I have really thick hair, so I needed to separate my hair into two layers to straighten, but if you had thinner or thicker hair you may need to alter that. I think that there is a bit of a learning curve trying to figure out how to hold the brush, but you could easily straighten your entire head in 5 minutes. 

Can you tell which side of my head was straightened and which wasn't? 

Final Thoughts: 
I really like this and I think that if you're someone that straightens semi regularly, this could make a huge difference in your routine. After I finished my entire head, I still went in with a hair oil to calm the frizz (that's not because of the tool, it's because of the insane humidity) and I ended up super happy with the way my hair looked. The concept of this seemed a little too good to be true when I first heard about it, but I am such a believer now! I really am impressed with the way that this works.

  1. I have been dying to try this! I think it sounds like it works much less harshly than a regular straightener and thats one of the main reasons that it caught my attention. Your hair is so shiny and pretty by the way Sisi!!!

  2. Thanks Julie! I definitely think that it was more gentle than a traditional straightener! I hope you're feeling better and everything is well with you now <3
