Hair straightening brushes are becoming increasingly popular as people look for convenient ways to style hair. The concept is an electronically heated paddle brush that straightens and smooths the hair as you brush through.
If you’re on the look out for a straightening brush, we have put together a list of the top 8 straightening hair brushes on Amazon.
No.1 TYMO IONIC Hair Straightener Brush
This hair brush will cost you a pretty penny but gives you a slew of handy features you never knew you needed.
The TYMO Ionic brush has a unique “air sandwich structure design”, which means it has bristles of two lengths so you don’t burn yourself. The longer black bristles are cool to prevent scalding while the short purple bristles straighten hair and regulate heat.
This has a small paddle head and a tapered handle. The bristles are designed so you can get close to the roots and comb through baby hair. They are widely spaced throughout the head for fewer snags and less damage.
There are a whopping sixteen heat settings on this brush so it will work for you, whatever your hair type is. As a bonus, it has dual voltage so you can pack this with you on your travels.
It comes with a built-in ionic generator so you achieve lustrous locks without damaging the hair. The straightener brush heats up quickly and has an automatic shutoff for peace of mind. It also remembers what heat setting you used previously so you can just turn it on and start styling right away.
The plates distribute heat evenly using an ultra-zone technology so straightening is consistent for every strand. The hair straightener brush is lightweight and easy to use.
This feature-packed tool has a small downside: it’s not for very thick hair. The bristles will be too short for fast styling if you have coarse hair or a lot of hair, especially if it’s also long.
- Has an anti-burn design with two types of bristles
- The paddle-shaped heated brush is light and easy to hold
- Has 16 heat settings and distributes heat evenly
- The ionic technology is built in for less heat damage
- Quick heat up and automatic shutoff
- Using this for styling very thick and coarse hair will take you a long time.
No.2 Hair Straightener Brush by MiroPure
The MiroPure Hair Straightening Brush is a really affordable, yet high-quality straightening brush. Its packed with a number of features and comes in a sleek black design.
The technology of this brush is what makes it one of the best options for straight styling. This is mainly thanks to the double ionic generator which produces smooth and silky locks by sealing the hair cuticle in-turn reducing split ends and knotting. This is matched with the MCH heating (metal ceramic heater) technology which gives even heat distribution and quick temperature recovery time.
In terms of other benefits, the brush provides maximum performance with the temperature lock and you can have peace of mind with the auto-off feature that switches off after 60 minutes.
- Auto temperature lock
- Auto off function
- Suitable to all hair types
- Works for all hair types including natural African American hair
- Hair can sometimes get snagged
NO.3 L’Ange Hair Le Vite Hair Straightening Brush
L’Ange is another popular brand when it comes to hair tools and their hair straightening brush is a great inclusion in their range. I am always looking to try and control my frizz and found this product to be really effective in managing it while achieving beautifully straight hair. Plus, it comes in a stylish black or pink blush design.
Let’s talk benefits.
The Le Vite Straightening Brush uses double negative ion technology to keep hair smooth and hydrated by trapping in the moisture and sealing the cuticle.
Another feature of the brush is the ceramic bristles. They work by emitting far-infrared heat that instantly penetrates the hair cuticle and heats your strands from the inside out to help preserve moisture while helping keep you and your scalp safe.
Looking at design and functionality, it comes in a stylish black or pink blush design. The brush has a LCD digital interface that allows for precise temperature control and consistently beautiful results. Quick heat up and quick styling means the Le Vite works in half the time of conventional brushes and reduces the risk of damage from overheating, while the 30-minute auto- shutoff feature ensures it won’t be left running unattended.
- Cutting-edge double negative ion technology
- Variable heat settings
- Suitable for natural hair
- Fast heat up
- Ceramic bristles
- Not suitable to thin or fine hair
No.4 InStyler STRAIGHT UP Ceramic Straightening Brush
What started as a passion to shock the hair tool market has now become one of the leading brands in hair styling. Since 2008, InStyler has crafted consumer products with professional features and durability.
InStyler’s Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush is one such product. Unlike most brushes with a ceramic plate inside the head of the tool, this product wraps small ceramic cylinders around each bristle. That means your strands interact with heat from multiple sources at the same time.
This Straight Up brush is a marvel of innovation. The brush contains 65 individual heating elements. This isn’t a gimmick, but a unique tool that offers unique results. You’ll straighten your hair faster with InStyler’s brush than competitive brands.
The brush heats up almost instantly, within 30 seconds. And with 7 temperature settings, you can enjoy this brush no matter your hair type or length of strands. Also, because InStyler coated the tips of the bristles with their Cool Touch technology, you won’t burn your hands or scalp when handling the brush or using it close to your scalp.
Why I Love This Hair Straightening Brush
InStyler’s Straight Up Hair Straightening Brush has to be one of the quickest, from plugging it in to putting it back in the drawer, on my list. I found that at a mid-range setting, the brush reached temp in 20 seconds which is faster than advertised.
For most consumers, you can straighten your hair and brush out flyaways within 10 minutes. And those with thicker hair or very curly hair, add 5 more minutes for touch ups and hard to straighten areas.
I think InStyler’s brush has a lot of potential, both as a hair straightening tool and a touch-up tool throughout the week. That’s because it excels as an easy-to-use product, and the ceramic bristles allow for more hair to pass through them than your average tool.
What Could Be Better
This brush is heavy! All that ceramic on the bristles adds up and you’ll notice it the moment you pick up the box. But because your straightening times are so short, the weight shouldn’t bother your arm or shoulder.
No.5 GLAMFIELDS Straightening Brush 2.0 with Ionic Generator
Glamfield opened its online shop in 2016, and in three years they‘ve expanded their product catalogue to include Garden, Home Improvement, and Kitchen Accessories. But regardless of their far-reaching aspirations, they reserve a special interest in their first love, hair and beauty products.
The core technology in this brush is a metal ceramic heater. This product heats within 30 seconds and boasts wider teeth than its predecessor, the original Glamfields straightening brush. This halves the time you need to use the brush. Many customers report going from wavy to straight in a little over five minutes.
The Hair Straightening Brush 2.0 features four heat settings that service all hair types, from thick hair to colored hair. The device is usable in both Europe and the Americas and shut offs automatically after 30 minutes.
Why I Love This Hair Straightening Brush
This is another fantastic budget option for those of you looking to buy a hair straightening brush with a negative ion generator. The metal ceramic teeth won’t pull or tug on your hair. Even better, the brush protects your strands as it straightens, so you’ll sport straight locks with a glossy finish.
Although Glamfields’ Hair Straightening Brush 2.0 ships with a rubber glove, I never used it. The handle doesn’t overheat, and the anti-scald teeth aren’t hot to the touch. The ceramic teeth will only affect hair that slips in between the teeth.
I recommend this brush to those with thin and normal wavy hair. Those with thicker hair would well with a product that has more heat settings.
What Could Be Better
While the brush has a swivel cord, it quickly jammed itself and I could not fix it. This is a minor complaint and easily remediable by untwisting the brush every few sessions.
