Is it a hot brush or is it a flat iron? Actually, it’s both!
After letting my hair grow for nearly a year-and-a-half, I’m happy to report that it’s actually long enough to make a teeny-tiny ponytail. It’s been ages since I’ve had any length, and as thrilling as this is, it also means I actually have to do something with my hair style-wise. I’m lucky that it’s easy to blow straight, and it just needs a few passes with a flat iron to smooth and fluff or frizz, but some days I can’t be bothered with these two simple (and rather speedy) steps.
Then I came across InStyler’s Glossie Ceramic Styling Brush with Precision Press. Like other hot brushes, the bristles are anchored in a heated ceramic plate so you can literally brush your way to smoother hair. But the main problem I’ve had with these styling tools is that it’s hard to get the tension necessary to reap the maximum straightening benefits, especially if your hair is on the shorter side. But that’s why this one stands out from the rest…
In addition to the heated brush component, you also get a clamp of sorts that presses your hair into the brush as you’re styling. This extra bit of tautness goes a long way, and the design of the tool lets you get right to the roots for optimal smoothness along the entire length of your hair. Since I’m always one for a great shortcut when it comes to styling my hair, regardless of length, this is on the list for my next Target run!
