Straightening brush features needed for African-American hair

  1. Tourmaline technology
    1. Tourmaline technology is frequently featured on most hot brushes. Because it emits only negative ions, this technology helps seal the cuticle (hair) and leaves you with beautifully soft hair texture. In my opinion, tourmaline is a gemstone, you can expect the cost of the product to rise if your hot brush uses tourmaline technology. But again, I think it's worth the extra cost.
  2. Ceramic brush technology
    1. So what is ceramic technology really about and why do you need it? It essentially helps to create infrared heat that heats up your hair shaft literally from inside to the outside. This is so you don't have to keep your hair exposed to high heat for prolonged periods of time to straighten it out.
  3. Ionic technology
    1. If you have an ionic technology in your hair straightening brush, it means your brush can break the water molecules of your hair, making your hair shinier and free of the frizzes.
  4. Hot brush auto-shut off
    1. Automatically shuts off the hot brush after either 30 or 60 minutes of inactivity.I consider this feature an important safety feature and should be on all straightening brushes.

  1. Hot brush heat settings
    1. Having a wide choice of heat settings will help save your hair from damage. This feature allows you to precisely control the amount of heat needed to straighten your hair. Why apply too much heat and run the risk of creating hot spots in your hair when you don't need to, right?
  2. Brush bristles
    1. Generally speaking the stiffer the bristles the better the penetration you are going to have. So if you have thick curly hair you are going to want a stiffer bristle to be able to get penetration and then be able to apply tension on the hair for straightening. A soft bristle brush is just not going to do the job in my opinion.
  3. Brush cord length
    1. Most professional hot brushes have a 9 foot power cord. At the minimum it should have at least a 6 foot cord. Having a 360 degree swivel is a plus. This avoids the cord being twisted when styling and gives you more freedom of movement. Saves you time from having to stop styling, let the brush cool down to straighten and untangle the power cord. International power option is also great if you plan to travel with your brush.
  4. Warranty
    1. Most hot brushes are going to have a 1 year warranty. This is pretty much standard. There are some higher prices models that come with a 2 year warranty. The longer the warranty the better especially if the unit cost more. You are going to want a better warranty if you have to pay more. Also, after your purchase take the extra step to register your product so there is no doubt as to if you are covered or not. Also, make sure you purchase your straightener from a reputable store. This insures you get the real deal and not a knock-off look-a-like product.

#2 MiroPure 2-in-1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush - $36.99


MiroPure 2-in-1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush
Coming in at number 2 is MiroPure. It's a strong second due to it's similar to Glamfields other than the shape of the head is a little larger. More of a rectangle than an oval. And it like the Glamfields is pack with features at a reasonable price that won't break the bank.
  1. MiroPure hair straightener brush provides your hair with a soft, silky, natural lustrous look by sealing the hair cuticles, decreasing split ends and knotting. Get natural and healthy, silky-looking hair, rather than a flat-burnt look.
  2. Auto-off and auto-temperature locking characteristics guarantee maximum safety and optimum efficiency at all times. As an integrated safety function, this hair straightener brush will automatically shut down if not used for 60 minutes.
  3. Easily straighten hair at home with the 360-degree swivel power cord at any angle.
  4. I like the MCH (Metal Ceramic Heater) that even gives heat distribution and fast recovery time.
  5. The adjustable heat temperature from 150 ° C (300 ° F) to 230 ° C (450 ° F) allows you to match your specific type of hair: thin, fine, wavy or curled. It can heat up to the desired temperature in just one minute and deliver great results.




#3 Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer & Styler - $37.75


Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer & Styler
Revlon was in the top 5 last year and in the top 5 again this year. Revlon is consistent at providing quality products at reasonable prices. While this model does not have as many features as the top two brushes mentioned above it does have the distinct advantage of a nice large head which is a big plus enabling you to straighten a lot hair fast. But the biggest reason why I like this model is the incredible 4 year limited warranty. Wow!
  1. Flexible, tangle-free bristles that help dry, smooth and style.
  2. Has an enormous 1100 watts of drying energy.
  3. Features ionic technology that saturates negative ions in the airflow. This helps to create shinier, smoother and more conditioned hair while decreasing static and frizz.
  4. 2 Heat / speed styling flexibility settings. I would like to see this model feature more heat setting
  5. Unit is 120V (not available at 240V outlets). I would like to see this model have travel-friendly global dual voltage.
  6. 4 year limited warranty.
















#4 InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush - $43.50


InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush
New in the line-up for this year is the Straight Up brush. InStyler is well known in the world of hair straightening and this model provides many essential features you would want in a brush. Great value from a well known leading brush manufacturer.


  1. The ceramic heated plates surround each bristle, thus helping with sectioning and straightening. The powerful 65 ceramic heated plates provide even surface temperature. Instant heat recovery with fewer passes and faster styling delivers superior results.
  2. I like the digital screen with 7 heat settings up to 450 which offers optimum results for any hair type. This allows you to straighten and smooth your hair without creasing like a flat iron.
  3. Heats up quickly, in 30 seconds, and spreads heat evenly across the surface to produce straight, shiny hair all in one pass.
  4. Features cool ionic touch bristles that prevent the heated surface from actually touching your scalp. This is an excellent feature in my opinion. This allows you to use the product more like a real brush to brush away frizz to create a smooth, sleek look.
  5. Features an automatic shutdown.
  6. And it also has a professional swivel cord.
  7. 1 Year's guarantee.

This hot brush gives you all the tension you need to straighten the root to the tip. Transform your hair with every brush while giving you a lustful shine.






















#5 Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush - $96.00


Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush - $96.00

Amika products are like a good friend-straightforward, reliable and fun to spend time with.The brush is easy to use just slide the brush through your hair at a moderate pace from root to tip for best results. the price is almost double of the competitors mentioned above and does not really provide any ground breaking features the others do not have. So for that reason it's listed as #5.

  1. I like the double negative ion technology with maximum negative ions resulting in zero static shiny, smooth, frizz-free outcomes.
  2. Contains ceramic nylon bristles for cooler tips and emits infrared heat that immediately penetrates the cortex of the hair cuticle, heating from the inside out.
  3. It contains a 360° 9-foot swivel cord made of heat-proof fabric and a special hook that makes it easy to store.
  4. 1 year guarantee. I would have liked to see at least a 2 year warranty at this price.
  5. Voltage is 120V only. I would like to have seen dual voltage 110-240V at this price.




















Straightening Brush Conclusion

Any one of the above mentioned straightening brushes would be an excellent choice for Afro-American hair. One of the main things to remember is to purchase from a well known major manufacture.

There are many brands that set up shop on major online selling sites and will sell until they get a bad review and then change their brand to avoid loss of sales. They simply switch names and keep on selling the same product under another name.

In addition, many times you don't know what you are really getting in terms of quality. It's a hit or miss. When purchasing from unknown brands or brands that sell exclusively on major online selling sites quality is good for a while and then suddenly the quality drops like a rock. You can avoid all this by purchasing from a major manufacture. They can't change their name at the drop of a hat. Their reputation is at stake.

Best hair straightening brush

Best hair straightening brush
Are you interesting in knowing the best hair straightening brushes? I'll show you so you can choose the best of the best. Trends are important especially when it come to consumer satisfaction. If one brand or manufacture consistently comes out on top year after year you would want to know right? So this article takes a close look at hair straightening brushes and attempts to round up an ultimate best of the best list for your consideration.

Which is the best electric hair straightening brush?


So let's dive in and see what's the best. Keep in mind this is all very subjective and is based on my opinion and comparative analysis of features and price. In addition, there are no "no name brands" mentioned here. You may disagree and that OK, but if the product is not made by a well known manufacture it's on on our list.
Tip: There are hundreds of what I call no name brands sold on popular major web sites. These are cheap knock-offs manufactured in a foreign country. Analysis has found these brands are here today and gone tomorrow. They change their name as soon as they receive a bad rating. So for this reason and other quality reasons they are avoided and do not appear on the list. My advise is to avoid purchase of these products regardless of the cost!!!
If you disagree or have experienced differently please comment below. Readers would like to hear about your experiences.

All prices quoted are as of the time of this article and are subject to change at any time. All features mentioned are also at the time of this writing and are subject to change so please make sure you visit the manufactures web site for the latest information.

These brushes have been around for awhile and are list on major online stores for more than one year. So if you buy and something breaks the manufacturer is still around to honor the warranty.

But for the price you do get a lot of value therefore it's a great straightening brush. Also see my review on the AsaVea hair straightening brush 4 and the regular AsaVea straightening brush.

The seller or manufacture, Irresistibleme is best known for clip in extensions and other hair styling tools like flat irons and professional hair dryers. This particular product is no longer available on their main web site but is still available at other major online stores. Not sure how much longer it will be available for sale. It's a little higher prices than the some of the others on the list with similar features but still in my opinion is a great value for the money. It offers multiple temp setting from 270℉ to 450℉ with an LED display. For that reason alone it's worth the extra price. Solid value.

Straightening brush technology


Electric hair straightening brushes use the same kind of technology that the finest professional flat iron and blow dryers use. But to look like you just had an expensive blowout, you don't have to be a professional, right? It all comes down to some basic technology and the best of the best are using ceramic technology in their heating elements.

Ceramic straightening technology


So what does the ceramic technology do? Basically it helps produce infrared heat, which literally heats up from the inside of your hair shaft to the outside. That means your hair doesn't need as much heat to make it straighten, and that's a big benefit for your beautiful locks. If your hair straightening brush has ionic technology, this merely implies it breaks up your hair's water molecules, making your hair brighter and more frizz-free.

Tourmaline straightening brush


Tourmaline technique is also often used. Because it emits only negative ions, this technology helps seal the cuticle of your hair and leaves you with beautifully soft hair. In my opinion, because tourmaline is a gemstone, if your hot instruments use tourmaline technology, you can expect the cost of the product to rise. But again, in my opinion it's worth the extra cost.

The beneficial part about these distinctive brushes is that their heat is spread through the brush bristles, meaning individual hairs get a smoother touch, but are subject to less harm and breakage than when using a flat iron. They also offer you an easier choice to straighten straight down to the roots without burning your scalp. That implies you have the opportunity to create that silky smooth hair you have always wanted with ease.

Straightening brushes advantages


Time is essential, particularly when getting prepared in the morning, right. You are always rushed for time and every minute counts. So what's more quicker and efficient than flat irons? Well you guessed it, the straightening brush. Plus it's a safer solution than compared to the flat iron clamp style you have most likely been using for so many years. Did you know some straightening brushes can even do a blow dryer's work. A product that dries and straightens everything in one tool, how convenient, right?

By looking at the previous years and comparing to the current listings there are several manufactures listed again year. They are Drybar, Glamfields, Revlon, Amika, and MicroPure to mention a few. These are manufactures that are good at at providing consistent quality products at a reasonable price. In addition, you will see a few new manufacturers on the list, Conair and John Freida for example. Their prices are very competitive and the value for the features they provide are very good that's why they are the list.

So, look no further than this list for the top hair straightening brushes providing for the simplest, fastest manner to straighten your hair.

  5. John Frieda Hot Air Brush, 1 1/2-inch Hot Air Brush $39.99
  6. John Frieda Hot Air Brush Hot Air Brush
    John Frieda Hot Air Brush Hot Air Brush 1 1/2-inch
    1. For use on damp hair. Hair should be about 85% dry before using.
    2. The brush does not rotate. It looks like it might but does not. This should save your hair from getting tangled, right?
    3. Features advanced Ionic technology for shine and help with frizz control. 
    4. I like the titanium ceramic barrel because it heats up fast and distributes the heat evenly for that salon-style like fullness with less damage to your hair. 
    5. Nylon and ball-tipped bristles provide for a gentle detangling experience while creating plenty of volume. 
    6. Has a swivel power cord.
    7. The biggest drawback is the 500 watts of power and only 2 heat settings. Would like to have seen a little more power (higher wattage) and be international power capable. Also would like to an option to replace the bristles with a stiffer set. For some hair types the bristles are going to be too soft and thus will not hold tension on the hair while styling. But I can't complain too much at this price, right?
  7. MiroPure 2-in-1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush
  8. MiroPure 2-in-1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush
    MiroPure 2-in-1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush
    1. MiroPure hair straightener brush provides your hair a soft, silky, natural lustrous look by sealing the hair cuticles, decreasing split ends and knotting. Get silky-looking natural and healthy hair, rather than a flat-burnt look.
    2. Auto-off and auto temperature locking characteristics guarantee maximum safety and optimum efficiency at all times. As an integrated safety function, if not used for 60 minutes, this hair straightener brush will automatically shut down.
    3. Easily straighten hair at home at any angle with the 360-degree swivel power cord.
    4. I like the MCH (Metal Ceramic Heater) gives even heat distribution and quick temperature recovery time. The adjustable heat temperature from 150°C (300°F) to 230°C (450°F) allows you to match your specific hair type: thin, fine, wavy or curled. In just one minute, it can heat up to the desired temperature and offer great results.
  9. InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush $49.99
  10. InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush
    InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush
    1.  The ceramic heated plates surround each bristle, thus helps with sectioning and straightening. The powerful 65 ceramic heated plates provide even temperature throughout the surface. Instant heat recovery with fewer passes and quicker styling provides superior outcomes.
    2. I like the digital screen with 7 heat settings up to 450 offers optimum outcomes for any  hair type. This allows you to straighten and smooth your hair like a flat iron without  creasing.
    3. Heats up quickly, in 30 seconds and spreads the heat uniformly across the surface to produce straight, shiny hair all in one pass. A good time saver.
    4. Features cool touch ionic bristles that prevent the heated surface from actually touching your scalp. In my opinion this is an excellent feature. This allows you to use the product more like a real brush to brush away frizz creating a smooth, sleek look.
    5. Features an automatic shut off.
    6. And also has a professional swivel cord.
    7. 1 year warranty. For warranty details click here: InStyler straight up ceramic straightening brush warranty PDF
    8. Packs a lot of features for a straightening brush at this price. In my opinion the biggest feature lacking is international voltage.

  11. Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush - Not available
  12. Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush
    Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush
    1. I like the double negative ion technology that features maximum negative ions resulting in zero static shiny, smooth, frizz-free outcomes.
    2. Contains ceramic nylon bristles for cooler tips and emits far-infrared heat that penetrates the hair cuticle's cortex immediately, heating from the inside out. The hair heats the standard heat uniformly and in half, decreasing the likelihood of harm.
    3. It contains a 360 ° 9 foot swivel cord made of heat-proof fabric and a special hook that makes it easy to store.
    4. 1-Year warranty. At this price I would have liked to see at least a 2 year warranty.
    5. Voltage is 120V. I believe it should be consistent with global dual voltage 110-240V for this price. And come with an adapter.
  13. Drybar The Brush Crush Heated Straightening Brush
  14. Drybar The Brush Crush Heated Straightening Brush
    Drybar The Brush Crush Heated Straightening Brush
    1. Straightening iron and paddle brush in an ionic technology that seals the cuticle while dressing for less frizz and tons of shine. There is also a digital temperature control that enables all hair types to customize styling. Heats up to 232 ° C at 450 ° F. For fragile or damaged hair, you'll want to use the reduced heat setting.
    2. 60-minute automatic safety shut-off. I would have liked to see automatic shut-off after 30 mins no action for security at this price.
    3. Features a professional length 9ft cord.
    4. Guaranteed with a 2-year limited warranty.
    5. It should be consistent with global dual voltage 110-240V for this price. And come with an adapter.
    6. Also would like to see a 360 rotating power cord at this price.
  15. Conair 2-in-1 Hot Air Curling Combo $19.99
  16. Conair 2-in-1 Hot Air Curling Combo
    Conair 2-in-1 Hot Air Curling Combo
    1. This is a 2-in-1 hot air styler which is great for adding volume. It's recommend for use on damp or dry hair, not wet hair. It's also dual voltage which is nice at this price but you do need to purchase an adapter separately.
    2. Comes with two attachments for styling control. A 1-inch nylon bristle brush for defined curls  and a 3/4-inch brush attachment for tight curls.
    3. Features 2 heat settings, high and low. Not sure on the wattage, most likely it's going to be lower than the rest of the competition listed here. The handle says 300 watts. Which sounds right for this type of styling tool.
    4. Has an aluminum barrel that significantly helps with heat transfer for long-lasting styling. But does not feature negative ion technology.
    5. Bristles are nice and stiff and will grab your hair and be able to provide good tension while styling. 
    6. Comes with a 1 year warranty. To read the warranty details click here: Conair 2-in-1 hot air curling combo warranty PDF.
    7. Would like to see some improvements in the lock piece that hold the brush in place. Would like to see this part be made of a more durable material to prevent cracking. Also would like to see a slightly longer power cord. It's on the short side and make it so that you have to stand or be very close to the power outlet while styling. But for this price it's a bargain.

  18. Infinitipro by Conair 1875 Watt 3-in-1 Ceramic Styler
    Infinitipro by Conair 1875 Watt 3-in-1 Ceramic Styler
    1. New on the list for this year.
    2. Includes 3 attachments to accomplish a range of looks and styles: 1 bristle brush for density and waves, 1 dual-row fine-tooth straightening comb, 1 wide-tooth straightening comb ; lock button secures attachments in location. And yes, it's very well kept in place.
    3. Features tourmaline ceramic technology for smooth, silky hair with less heat damage which is nice at this price. Plus Ionic technology for up to 75% less frizz.
    4. Has 3 heat/2 velocity settings with a cool air shot to lock in waves and style. Comes with a 6-foot 360-degree swivel cord for flexibility.
    5. Features a hinged filter for simple access to lint buildup removal.

Conclusion

Always buy from a well known manufacture and avoid cheap knock-offs. Invest in quality hair care tools that will last rather than trying to save a dime. In the long run purchase one high quality tool that cost a little mores is actually more cost effective than purchasing several lover cost brushes.

Also consider how many cans of hair product you purchase at $10 to $15 per can over the course of a year. Is paying $50 or more for a straightening brush really that expense? When you think of it in those terms it's really not. What are your thoughts? What products do you use and why? Please comment below.
