Coarse, wavy, thick hair. READ THIS
My hair is thick, wavy and reasonably coarse. I usually blow dry my hair with a large natural bristle brush for a professional smooth result but use GHD straighteners on my dry hair if too lazy to blow-dry for a smooth and healthy-looking effect. Thought I would try these to see if it was even easier than the GHD. Heats up fast and hot but ouch the most painful experience using this on my type of hair even in small sections. Pulls and hurts more than any tool I have used. Have tried with copious amounts of serum as well as without. You have to ...pull firmly with your hand on the bottom of the hair as you brush it through to ensure that thick coarse hair actually comes into contact with the heated plate. Can not hold firm as you pull through close to the ends thus even with numerous goes over the ends are not smooth but that frizzy weird unhealthy look. So painful and not a good effect on my type of hair.
Not worth it!
You are better to use a hair straightener. The only way i can make this semi work it to use a normal brush on one side and this one on the other almost sandwiching the hair.. which you might as well use a flat iron.
Took double the time of using a flat iron, alot of my hair fell out and my hair is still frizzy at the roots and ends as it only seems to work on the mid section of hair.
Will return, no easier then using a straightener.

Great straightening brush
I recently purchased the Remington Keratin and Argan oil nourish straightening brush and it is amazing.
It is one of my best investments as it fixes my hair so quickly,adds shines and makes them so smooth.
As a mum i don't have too much time to do my hair so i can quickly fix the frizz in my hair and be out of the door.

Great straightening brush
I recently purchased the Remington Keratin and Argon oil nourish straightening brush. I was a little sceptical whether it would be as effective as a traditional straightening iron however, on my thick wavy and sometimes fizz prone hair I've found it to be very good.
The brush takes a little while to heat up, and is a bit heavy at first compared to a straightening iron, but I found I got used to this quite quickly, and have found it very fast and easy to use. When I first used it, it had a bit of an unpleasant smell when it was heating up, but this went away after a few uses.
Overall, I have found this brush very nice to use and would recommend it.

Great Quick fix hair tool
I have very curly hair and because my hair has had so much work done to it over the years it is very frizzy. I bought this brush after reading reviews on it and find it only fair I have my 2 cents worth of say. I find the brush quite good in the sense that it is quick to use and does a decent job. my hair is also not hard like steel wool any longer as well. I have below shoulder length hair and it takes about 7 minutes for me to get straight hair in the morning after I have washed it the night before. I find that combing my hair and ensuring that there are no knots helps get the job done quicker
Not harsh on the hair and delivers even heat
This brush is affordable and of good quality, it is important to use it correctly to achieve results, just watch a few videos available on youtube and use it accordingly. My hair is silky and very smooth after every use and I think it is not harsh on the hair and delivers even heat.
Good when you're in a hurry
This product is easy to set-up and use. Heats up in a few seconds and does the job. It takes my shoulder length hair around 5 mins to look manageable.
Just remember that it would work on DRY hair (don't use after the shower), and you have to untangle your hair before using.
Straightening Brush That Doesn't Wreck Your Hair
I bought this brush on sale for $49 at Target (previously $79) and so far seems like a great straightener. It has 3 heat settings and as I have fine hair I use the lowest setting (150 degrees) but it goes up to 230 degrees. I definitely noticed that my hair was soft and silky after straightening due to the keratin and argan oil infused ceramic (I always use a heat protecting hair product before blow drying or straightening). I haven't had any frizz at all today and it's been raining here in Brisbane this morning so quite humid. The brush is fai...rly light and easy to use and my hair glides through it quite easily due to the smooth ceramic and a row of plastic bristles that guide the hair. The brush can also be used overseas as it automatically adjusts the voltage required.

Does a good job of quickly straightening my curly hair - leaving a natural look
The Remington Keratin and Argan Oil straightening bush heats up quickly and straightens the hair relatively quickly in comparison to flat irons. In my case the result has lasted fro a couple of days, which suits me. Your hair must be completely dry to achieve the best results. It is easy to use and it pays to read the instructions carefully, in terms of heat settings to get the best result for your hair type. For what I paid in comparison to more expensive products on the market, this is worth the price.
First I doubt to buy because my hair are so wavy but from the time I bought this product I fell in love with it! it is really easy to use and with no help of others you will have straight hair very quickly! but should know that use it just on completely dry hair in order to have the best result :)
Perfect for my curly hair.
I have reasonably thick curly hair and I do own a ghd straightener but it takes me so long to straighten my hair as I need to section, blow-dry then straighten and as a working mum I don't have time for that. I purchased this straightening brush after reading reviews as I personally don't like the flat straight hair that flat irons create but also don't like my frizzy curly hair when it's left out, after just trying this brush on my ponytail I love it, it heats up quickly, it does definitely smooth out my curls which I love cause I'd much prefer a wavy straight look then a dead straight look. These definitely do not replace the flat straightening irons but it's money well spent for the outcome I am wanting to achieve.
A reasonable entry level brush
I purchased this brush because, having seen another (more expensive) brand advertised, wanted to try out an entry-level priced brush to see if it worked on my very thick hair. It does work, but only if you are mindful of your hair type and how to use the brush. It is not a miracle worker, but is effective in smoothing and straightening my hair for a couple of days at a fraction of the time it took to run the conventional straightener through it.
Waste of money
I had another straightener which was four - five years old so bought this from recommendation of the retailer. Sorry to say product is not value for money.what to say about quality - the fact I prefer to use my old one over this new one states it all. Feel like getting my money back.
Throw away your hair straightener!
I've always loved the way my hairdresser dries my hair and how the 'frizz' stays away for at least 3 days. Well this brush gives me the exact same look. It takes me literally five minutes to straighten my hair and I'm left with silky smooth hair for days. My daughters love it also and it works well on the three of us even though we all have very different hair. My hair straightener doesn't work as well as this brush.
Questions & Answers
Can I use it through my scalp??
The brush should not touch your scalp at all as the ends will be heat from 150C-230C in five minutes. You need to comb your hair first to ensure it is tangle free then section your hair working just out from your scalp at the top working towards the ends. You need to make sure you are gliding the straightening brush slowly through the hair so that it is having maximum contact with the hair.
