Straightening Brush is a device that tends to straighten the hair by keeping it sleek and shiny. Although it requires heat, the brushes are usually considered a little better and probably a cheaper option to straighten your hair.

The types of straightening brush bring effects on the overall result. We recommend a round brush for people with long hair and angled or flat brushes who have short hair. Let’s jump into the main discussion.

Prepare Your Hair

Cleaning Hair

The first thing we want to let you know that if you are washing your hair then it is suitable to do it before you straighten it out. The exposure of your freshly straightened hair to water will allow you to reform and release your natural waves and curls. And washing your hair before you start styling will help you stay fashionable for longer, and if it is clean anyway it will look and feel much better!

Protection is a Must

Using a heat protectant after you shampoo and wash your hair before using a straightening brush is a must. It can be obtained in serum, oil, or spray form so that you can choose a type that suits your hair type. It nourishes the hair and provides them with a little extra thermal strength. Of course, your hair is gentler on straightening brushes than conventional flat irons, but you still have to care for them, so do not compromise this step at any cost.

Spray some protectants in your hands or you can spray directly on your hair. Then use your fingertips to move through your hair. Make sure you have plenty on your ends, as it is the most fragile and can be damaged easily. In addition, you may prefer to add it right down to the end and then work it upwards with your hands, because this avoids any substance from being applied to the roots that might otherwise make it seem lubricious.

You should not be confused between a regular hairbrush and a straightening brush. As the functions of these two are totally different. A straightening brush should not be used when you have knots in your hair, nor to detangle those. Before starting to use the straightening brush, you should use a regular brush or a wide-tooth comb to detangle the knots and then use the straightening brush.

Thoroughly Dry Your Hair

Drying Hair

There are two ways to dry your wet hair. Either you have to use a blow dryer or simply air dry. But before using a straightening brush, you must dry your hair because the temperature of the brush is very high which can damage your hair permanently if it is wet. One side note, if you dry your hair with a blow dryer, you also can detangle your hair while drying simply using a comb attachment with it.

Section Up Your Hair

Slightly wavy or curly hair needs to be divided less. But if you have thicker hair, you have to divide your hair into a greater number of sections. Though, irrespective of how dense, you will have to divide it approximately in right, left, and back, or you can punch it all up the head and slowly fall small sections as you maneuver around it. It’s a good practice to pin it up if you have some hair clips.

Set the Right Temperature

Hairbrush Heat Settings

Switch on the straightener of your hairbrush and set the correct hairdo temperature. Use the ideal temperature relying upon the type of your hair. The “plus” and the ‘minus’ signed buttons in the device will enable you to control the temperature. On the off chance that your hair is kinky and tangled, you can expand the temperature by pressing the plus button to fasten however if your hair is fuzzy, it needs constrained temperature. In addition, colored hair needs a lower temperature than ordinary hair type, yet we propose that you start at the most minimal temperature and raise it if necessary.

Start Brushing

Taking the primary segment of hair in one hand, at that point keep the hairbrush straightener at the roots, yet underneath your hair, with the goal that the fibers stick out. It invigorates the skin some raising and at the roots, in this manner successfully straightening it.

Place the hair bundle through the bristles and brush the hair strands firmly however delicately. For this, you need to utilize little hair packs. When you cannot see through the hair pack the tips of the bristles, which means you are using a too huge bunch of hair at a time. This will guarantee the heat will not consistently hit the strings, so you will not get the perfect outcomes and it will take longer.

Try not to brush through too rapidly, generally, the heat will not have a chance to follow up on the hair. At that point, brush gradually, yet do not begin and stop, or the hair can be overheated.

We find that it is ideal to begin from the back and work in reverse, at that point once you’ve finished that point, let some more hair down from the top and start taking a shot at that locale from the back to the front.

Hold the Style Longer

If you wash your hair every day you will notice that your straightened hair is going back to its usual shape very soon. But if you are not washing your hair every day the straightness holds for a few days. In the event that it starts to spring back to the usual shape despite not washing hair every day, you can touch it up with your straightening brush again but this time, you are not going to need a high temperature to style. Begin with the lowest temperature and you will have your work done. But if it is not working, begin to increase the heat gradually.

Final Thought

We want to end up our discussion by giving you some pro tips, which are, if considered, will boost up the result very positively. First of all, you ought to get a brush with tourmaline covering or ceramic plates and the bristle type is either nylon or boar. These materials will in general heat up speedier as it kills flyaways and frizzes, leaving your hair delicate and smooth.
