Since I first saw these type of hair straightening tools, I really I wanted to try one. I always used my pair of straighteners but I wanted to test something else that may not damage my hair as much. I got the opportunity to review this Apalus Hair Straightening Brush. When I first received the hair straightening brush I was very eager to test it out.
The brush came is a black box with an image of the product and some information written on it. The Apalus Hair Straightening Brush comes in two colours; the pink one which I chose and a black one that has teal coloured detail.
Whats included in the box:
- 1x Apalus Hair Straightening Brush
- 1x Heat Protection Glove
- 2x Hair Sectioning Clips
- 1x Storage Bag
- Instruction Manual
How this works is just like a hair straightener but without pressing the hair between two plates. The brush has heated bristles which spread the heat out between your hair strands.
The temperature can range between 80 centigrade (180 Fahrenheit) and 230 centigrade (450 Fahrenheit). The highest temperature is reached within 3 minutes. For my hair, I only used on the lowest temperature setting. It didn’t take very long to heat up at all, maybe a minute or so.
The instruction manual gives you a little guide on a recommended temperature for your hair type; delicate/coloured hair, natural hair and thick or wavy hair. The temperature is your preference. Like I say, I only used this on the lowest setting and I was really happy with the result.
To control the temperature and switch the brush off you have to double press the power button first to unlock button control. It can be a little tricky if you forget but I do like that feature. It makes it so as you can’t accidentally increase the temperature.
This brush also has an auto shut off feature where the brush will automatically switch off after it has been on for an hour.
My personal experience; My hair gets quite frizzy at times, especially when I have just blow dried it after a shower. I put this on the lowest temperature setting (180 Fahrenheit) and it took a short while to heat up tp temperature. Usually with a pair of straighteners, it takes me at least half an hour to straighten my hair. Using this straightening brush it took me 5 minutes maximum! I was very impressed with the brush itself and extremely pleased with the result.
I can’t recommend this enough!
