I personally think that ceramic hair straightening brushes are a brilliant invention. I love them. This one, by Simply Straight, arrives with a great instructional book. So, if you have never used one before, or even if you have, I recommend perusing it before you use it. This one has its controls on the back of the handle. They are semi inserted into the handle, and are impossible to accidently hit while using the brush. That is a great feature. I have a couple brushes, where it’s easy to change the settings, accidently. It is so annoying. I have thick, wavy hair, and need the higher setting. I hate when I keep lowering the heat on myself, lol. There is no worry of this on this brush. You can easily straighten and de-frizz yourself with this brush. You can even style your hair, with practice, with this brush. There are three main settings on this brush: Low, Medium, and High. Low is 365 degrees Fahrenheit and for delicate, fine, or colored hair. Medium is 410 degrees Fahrenheit and is for natural hair. High, which is what I use, is 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and is for thick or curly hair. It doesn’t but a couple minutes to heat up, and then you want to section of your hair as you brush. To straighten, they suggest in the pamphlet, to brush slowly from underneath the section of hair. This keeps the bristles off of your scalp, as well as giving you more control getting the brush through your hair. Just slowly move the brush through your hair. You will be so pleased at how well it works. It helps to calm your hair. I live by the coast, and in seconds, my hair can get so frizzy and wild. Even though these still get very hot, they are still a lot safer and use then regular straight irons. There is an LCD screen on the handle which lets you know the temperature. The automatic shut off on this unit is 60 minutes, if not used. It’s nice to know there’s a built in safety feature, but I think the time frame should be much less. Remember to let it cool off before storing it. Never rinse this unit off to clean it either. Use a cloth to clean it off, when it’s cool. The cord has the 360 swivel built into it, so it’s easy to use. The handle is comfortable to hold. Overall, it’s a great working ceramic straightening brush.
