DASKY Super Economical Hair Straightening Brush

Last update: Aug 17, 2017 13:46, Alice

Today I am going to tell you about an amazing product which has saved my hair, money and time. It’s a fast hair straightener brush called the Dasky. This innovative beauty tool has hit the global market last year and stays popular today. I stumbled across this ceramic hair brush while watching beauty channels on YouTube. The feedback comments on the brush were generally mixed; some were excited by the results and price while despite all of its promising features some thought otherwise. I know it’s not the best hair brush straightener on the market but I didn’t need the best, I just needed an affordable device that could smoothen my unruly hair with ease. That’s exactly what this fast hair straightener brush did.  Although there is still more to know before choosing this as your hair straightening brush, you should be aware of certain pros and cons before making a purchase and I am happy to inform you.

Basic Properties:

  • Only 29W
  • 360 rotatable wire
  • LED display
  • Dual-voltage (110-220V)
  • Temperature: 290F-450F
  • Ionization function

Price:

less than $20

The manufacturer claims this hair-styling tool combines three functions in one including a flat iron, detangling comb, and a scalp massager. Thanks to this trio, we now can cut the time we spend straightening our hair in half at least, while still leaving it smooth and silky. Another interesting feature of the Dasky is magnesium alloy. Magnesium technology is believed to preserve the hair’s natural moisture making it shinier and stronger.

Design

The brush looks the same as a standard cute brush, just with a cord and a plug. It is available in pink and white. In general, the design is pretty good. Instead of regular bristles, this beauty tool has little rubber red balls on the end, which prevents your scalp from burns. The LCD display makes controlling the temperature much easier. The brush panel has been made of high-temperature engineering material to avoid tool overheating. Unfortunately, the back of the electric brush gets hot within five minutes of use. There is no way you could put this ceramic hair brush down on your lap or somewhere else without the risk of burns. The plate width is 2.95 inches (75mm) and the length is 5.12 inches (130 mm). These sizes are very suitable for different hair types and styles. The Dasky weighs only 1. 5 lb. (0.7 kg) which means you won’t get tired holding it while straightening your hair.  The beauty tool also has a 1-year warranty. I was quite surprised with the product instructions which were actually translated from Chinese to poor English. So the text was, unfortunately, hard to read, but, anyway, they were not very necessary as using the tool is pretty straight forward.

Usage

It has a convenient rotating cord of 360 degrees, so it doesn’t tangle at all. If you need a small straightener to travel with, the Dasky brush will be a good option. The straightening brush could do with some improvements in this aspect of usage. There is surprisingly no hanging hook at all. The cord is not very long. If you have small hands, then this brush handle could be too large and uncomfortable for you to hold. It would be ideal if it had a rubber handle. The power switch and heat buttons are situated very close to each other and they are not very wide so it they can be easily mixed up or you could even turn the tool off completely.

Extra Features

There is no more need to worry about a voltage adapter as the Dasky operates at a voltage of 110-220 V. I believe that it is a great benefit for those who like to travel abroad, as a dual voltage feature saves your straightener from burning out. The highest temperature for the brush is 230°C which is best used for thick and curly hair, while the lowest is 170 degrees Celsius for thin and delicate hair types. It is great that you can adjust the temperature according to the type, texture, and condition of your hair. Keep in mind that the lower temperature you choose the longer it takes to create your hairstyle. This electric brush has an automatic shut-off feature that prevents short-circuiting and the tool from overheating. The anti-scald design will help you avoid burns. I am really pleased with the ceramic surface of the heating element as it distributes the heat fast (heating to max temp within 1 minute) and evenly throughout the tool. You can style your hairdo in a gentle and tender way without any tugging.
Tips Before Use:

  • Use this tool only when your hair is completely dry to avoid heat damage.
  • To style your hair effectively use styling lotion or heat protection oil.
  • Divide your hair into sections and make sure there are no tangles.
  • Do not put too much hair through the brush and move it through the hair slowly.

Overall, Dusky is a decent electric hair straightening brush. I didn’t have high expectations after reading some of the customers’ reviews. Anyway, it took me from five to eight minutes to get the sleek straight look I was after so I am happy. I think this tool is especially convenient in the morning to take away any annoying fizz, fluffiness or to do a quick touch up.  I would recommend you to try this little beauty miracle for yourself to make your hair shiny, soft and healthy.

Pros:

  • Multifunctional tool (Iron Straightener, Detangling Comb, Hair Massager)
  • Quality meets the price
  • Dual-voltage for carefree traveling
  • Regulation of temperature
  • Automatic shut-off feature
  • Ceramic heating element

Cons:

  • No hanging hook
  • Uncomfortable large handle
  • Short cord
  • Small and inconvenient buttons

  1. Hi, Mary!
    No, the Dasky isn’t a salon product but it is actually not so much of a downfall as you may expect as it is made up of good quality materials and is capable of performing a superb standard in any case! It provides a consistent heat throughout the whole straightening process, leaving an even result all over my hair. Although it is not labeled as a salon product, you can still rely on it do the job well without breaking, frying or frizzing your hair. I am very pleased with how it leaves my hair looking sleek during the entire day.
