My hair is, for the most part, straight, but I like to air dry it after I take a shower and it usually ends up not exactly straight, but not exactly wavy… like combo skin, I have combo hair :Op Then I twist my hair and clip it up, so when I take my hair down, it’s usually wavy and it’ll either stay that way or get all frizzed out. That’s my hair for you. In any event, I wanted to try this to see what it would do to my hair. The box says Beautiful Star, but the listing says Sela or Sela Beauty and the instructions booklet say Innovative straight iron. So I really don’t know the correct brand or the correct name for this product.
I was told I could order the white or the pink, and I wanted to order the white one, but when I got to the ordering page, the only one available (under their instructions for selecting shipping) was the pink one. No big deal, I could handle pink and I went ahead and ordered. Low and behold when it came, it was not the pink one, but instead the white one that I had originally wanted. So it worked out for me.
The instructions that are included with this heating brush is a little choppy with broken English, like a bad translation.
Basically, you hold the power button for 3 seconds to turn it on, then the little screen at the back of the brush lights up blue and shows the temperature in Celsius. You can set the max temp using the plus or minus buttons on the side, below the power button. I put it to about 205-210 degrees C. It takes a little while to heat up, as most hair heat styling tools do, then you take sections of your hair and brush it slowly downward. Important note: do not touch the inner part of the bristles (beyond the red tips) with your finger, it’ll burn. Oh and to turn it off, just hold the button again for 3 seconds.
As you can see the side that I used the straightening brush on is straighter and smoother than the other side and it really doesn’t take that long. I have to say that I really like this heating brush! I will have to experiment and see if I can make it curl at the end using the brush.
OH, I should also note that it is a hard plastic, not ceramic like the listing states. Maybe the heating element bristles are ceramic, but I’m not certain that they are.
