Is a Hair Straightening Brush as good as Straighteners?

Over the past year, the Straightening Brush has taken over the straight hair game. The ease of use and practicality of these brushes make it popular for everyone, no matter what hair type you have. However are they all they are built up to be? I got this Straightening Brush from AsaVea as a Christmas present last year and was so excited to give it a go! So does it work? Click here to hear what I had to say....

Their are so many Straightening Brushes out there from different brands and they all range in price, so I was happy to get one that was somewhere in the middle! First impressions when I first opened the box were good.... the box comes with gold detail and looks very luxurious. When I opened it, it was well packaged and even came with a little protector bag... perfect for travelling!

The brush itself is gorgeous and looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. This brush is rose gold (I am not sure if their are other colours available), and looks sturdy and good quality!

Now I have been using this brush for a few weeks now, so I think I have got a pretty good idea of what this brush is like!

For me this does work... depending on your hair type. When I let my hair dry after being wet, my hair is super curly and frizzy... even more so when I get my hair cut. The brush did work, however it was extremely time consuming and after a while I became very impatient. My hair is just too thick for this kind of product and to get it from curly and frizzy, to poker straight is too much for this brush.

Nevertheless, this is great for those in between days. Those days where I have had my hair straight in between washes and it just has a few kinks in it. It is great for just finishing the hair off and getting any pesky kinks and waves out of the hair that I have maybe got from sleeping or just general wear throughout the day! Another thing to point out is I do have a fringe, which can be straightened with the brush, but can be awkward and difficult to style to your liking, as the brush head is pretty big.

In my opinion, these brushes aren't designed for heavy use, and are handy more for wavy or shapeless hair to add style. Then again, this is just one brush I tried out... maybe other brushes perform better, or go to a higher temperature! If you have tried any other brushes, please let me know what they were like and if they were any good!


Have you tried a straightening brush and if you did, what did you think? Are they worth the hype? In my opinion, they are good, and do work.... however you would only benefit from having one if you have sleeker hair naturally... otherwise I would just stick with a straightening iron!

  1. I've always been skeptical about using a straightening hair brush for that exact reason. I feel like I'd have such high hopes for it only to really not straighten my hair that well. I have quite thin wavy hair so it might work that I don't have much of it haha. Might give it a go. Great post :) xoxo


    1. Hia... yeah might be a good thing for you you try because of your hair type. I have extremely thick frizzy hair so it struggled with my hair unfortunately! Saying that it is good for the between days :) Let me know how you get on if you try it! xx
