It's hard to believe that women had to subject themselves to such unpleasant beauty regimens as pictured above from the 1940's, but it really wasn't all that long ago! These women had to go to great lengths at times, to achieve in beauty what we do today with much improvement and ease! I admit that I wouldn't have been the first in line when it came to the above hair curling and styling treatment, which is why I quite thankful that I live in today's beauty world.
That's probably one of the reasons why I enjoy beauty so much and it's always been a love of mine since I was a little girl. The advances in tech have afforded the women of today with even more beauty tools and treatments that can even be utilized outside of the salon. This is the era of beauty tech & innovation and I'm excited to be part of it as a beauty-obsessed gal ;)

Digital Hair Straightener Brush
*get this pricing w/Prime at Amazon.com!
These brushes are really popular right now and I can see why- they offer up the opportunity to make hair styling an easier task by combing the best of a brush and a straightener into one powerfully effective hair styling tool :) What really stood out for me with this one for starters was the pricing- it's just in the middle of the range as I've seen pricing starting at around $11 and going up to around $60.
The $40 price-range was right where I wanted to be and this model seemed to offer all the options I was looking for. There is a slight drawback if you're not used to utilizing the Celsius or metric temperature measurement since this particular model is crafted overseas and the default temp. control is in Celsius. I can advise though that with a simple conversion, I was easily able to figure out what there were in Fahrenheit. The starting temperature is 170 degrees Celsius or 338 Fahrenheit and is increased in increments of 5 degrees, reaching a top temp. of 230 degrees Celsius- a whopping 446 degrees Fahrenheit.
This means that you really do have a decent range of temperatures to choose from depending on your hair type and styling you're looking for; it also allows for even those with super thick and/or coarse hair can still benefit from this device as it reaches temperatures of over 400 degrees Fahrenheit :) Thankfully though, you can do this an even easier way by switching the conversion on the device itself. By pressing the plus and minus symbols at the same time on the unit, you can get the digital display to show the degrees in Fahrenheit and forget converting all together if you want ;)
I wondered if I might end up burning my scalp or skin while using the tool, but I never had that issue as the stiff heated-up bristles are well-coated and protected. They didn't pose a threat to burning due to the good design and I really liked the instant results that I got after using this heated brush straightener. Not only was my hair soft and smooth, it didn't have the usual static issues I often get when styling my coarse and thick hair during the winter.
Something I didn't really count on either, but that was definitely a nice bonus- I noticed that using this tool was super relaxing and soothing. Once I'm done using the brush, I feel at ease...it's a nice way to finish out a tough day too. I know it sounds a little silly, but I swear doing this will help relieve stress- the repetitive and calming action of brushing one's hair that's combined with heat seems to be its secret ;)
As for the weight [1 lb.], it didn't seem to really bother me either; it does weigh more than an average brush for example, but it's something that I'm quite used to since I already utilize hair styling tools on a regular basis. I didn't really find that using this tool was much different and it was a cinch to manage. It's super at heating up fast too and I noticed that I was able to get it up to it's highest heat setting in under 2 minutes. If you are worried about leaving it on and forgetting about it, NASV has thought of that too with a built-in automatic shut-off that gives you peace of mind.
Overall, I was really pleased that I gave this tool and chance and it's definitely going to be one of the newest player in my hair styling arsenal. I love how soft, smooth, and shiny it leaves my thick, coarse hair and I would recommend this tool for most hair types. You can accomplish a variety of styling looks or just get your hair quickly prepped for the day if you have little time and the pricing makes this a good buy.
