Hair Straightener Auto Shut Off

Many women are not able to make flat iron their styling tool of choice due to the high temperatures turn their thin and sensitive hair to split ends quickly. This is one reason new air brush straighteners have become a sensation practically overnight. You should definitely buy a styling tool with an auto shut to avoid any risk. In this article I rounded up all my absolute favorite straightening tools that have an shut off.

Hair Straightener Auto Shut Off: These are my top four auto shut off models in no particular
order. Glamfields Heated MCH Hair Straightening Brush with a 30 minute auto shut off, the AsaVea MCH Hair Straightener Brush 3.0 with a 30 minute auto shut off, the MiroPure 2-in-1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush with a 60 minute auto shut off, and lastly the Apalus Brush Hair Straightener with a 60 minute auto shut off.

At the time of this writing the auto shut off times listed above was listed per the manufacture's manual. Please do not rely on this website but make sure to read your product manual and follow the manufactures instructions. There are many other very good models with an auto shut off the ones I listed are my top ones. Which one you end up choosing is up to you.

Hair straighteners come in two basic types the "Flat/Paddle" and "Barrel Brush" style. They perform similar and both have ceramic or tourmaline plates containing bristles. Heat is generated by the plate and as the hair passes through the bristles negative ions are released the make your hair smoother and shiner. The barrel brush can have a fixed or rotating head. The head also straightens and adds shine to your hair. The way it works is that hot air is directed into the barrel and as it rotates it adds volume and shine to thin air. The biggest difference between the "Flat/Paddle" and the "Barrel" straightener is the barrel version can also curl hair as well as straighten.

Hair Brush Straighteners Important Characteristics


The most important feature of any styling tool is safety and having an auto shutoff. Everything else is secondary. Safety is the primary concern. You do not want a product that is not well made and has your safety in mind.

Brush control

Now that being said some other very important features is control. You must be able to control the brush comfortable with one hand. You do not want a brush that is too heavy.

Heat setting

After that is heat settings. You want to be able to control the amount of heat being applied to your hair. Especially to keep from damaging your hair or if you already have damaged hair to keep it from getting even more damaged. Hair straighteners now days have precise temperature controls you can set to your hair type. For example for medium thick hair a temperature of 365 degrees is usually considered optimal. For thin hair you would most likely use a lower temperature of 300 degrees. And for real thick and curly hair a higher temperature is needed, usually 450 degrees.

Brush bristles

What is the best. Well that depends on your hair type. Nylon is best for sensitive scalps or hair that is not too thin. Some straighteners have bristles tipped with silicone balls or other materials. They can be more comfortable to your scalp.

Ceramic or titanium?

Although a few use titanium, most straighteners will come with ceramic or tourmaline plates. Ceramic is going to be the best choice for delicate, fine or even color-treated hair. The ceramic heats very evenly and more slowly than tourmaline or titanium without any hot spots. In contrast, tourmaline and titanium heat up very quickly and can easily damage thin or sensitive hair. For thick hair, you can to use tourmaline or titanium. Tourmaline has the extra added advantage of producing 20 times more negative ions, making your hair moist, silky and reducing the frizz.
