Best for Curly Hair
- The boar bristles are great for people with thick and/or curly hair.
- It dries and straightens hair quickly.
Hair type: “My curls are defined, a bit on the frizzy side, but overall shiny and soft. I like to air-dry my hair because I’m not a big fan of heat, especially when it comes to maintaining my curl definition. It takes about one to two hours to air-dry, but if I get it straightened at a salon, it’s closer to 30 minutes,” explains Chelsea Candelario, assistant editor at PureWow.
How would you describe your experience with the hot air brush?
“The hot tool was pretty easy to use. It definitely kept my hair tangle-free. However, it felt heavy at times and it took way too long to dry my roots. Overall, it took an hour for my hair to get completely dry,” she says.
She adds, “The first time I tried the brush, my ends looked horrible. The second time, my hair came out better and I realized it was because I needed to do smaller sections—which means I would have to spend at least an hour or more on my hair, and I do not have time for that! I also used a thicker heat-resistant serum the second time around, and that really helped.”
Is it worth it?
“If I have to compare it to getting it straightened at the salon, I think the results are pretty similar. The brush did a good job at providing volume and keeping my ends hydrated,” shares Candelario. “Honestly, if any other curly gals are looking to straighten their hair, I would reach for this hot brush tool over a flatiron any day.”
