Last update: Aug 17, 2017 13:28, April Williams

Hair straightening is one of the relative novelties offered by most beauty salons. However, along with the aesthetic advantages, this procedure has its drawbacks. And these drawbacks often depend on what you use — a flat iron or a straightening brush. But let’s start with the beginning.

flat iron vs hair straightener
You can straighten your hair for a short time, using high temperatures.

Actually, even a hot hair dryer and a large round brush can straighten your hair, prone to the formation of curls. It is enough to moisten your hair and divide it into several strands. Then pull them from root to tip, applying the hot air jet and carefully combing your hair with a brush.

However, this procedure is not effective if the hair is coarse and there are a lot of small curls that are difficult to tame. For the hard, unruly hair, straightening using hot irons or brush straighteners will be perfect.

Be careful when choosing these devices, it is important to pay attention to the material which they are made of.

Honestly speaking, this is a real problem for many women to choose a hair styling tool, which will be perfect for her type of hair. In this article, we will try to help you to make the right choice and solve this problem once and for all.

The results of work of both tools are amazing, but nevertheless, there are some differences. Let’s look a bit closer.

So, let’s compare these two tools according to the following parameters:

  1. I’m feeling a little bit puzzled, in the past, I have always used a hair straightening flat irons but haven’t had one for the past few years. After reading lots of positive statements I’m considering trying a straightening brush. My hair is curly and big; I’m worried it won’t give me the sleek look I want, do you think I should give it a go or stick to wat I already know works for my hair?

    1. Trina

      It can definitely work for you; just take into consideration a few things before making your purchase. First of all, you will need to use a high heat on the straightening brush; you should definitely section your hair and glide the brush through your hair nice and slowly. Apply a serum to hold your look and it will give you that lovely smooth, sleek look you desire. I recommend using a professional hair straightening brush to give you the best results.

    2. Try it out you never know if the change will end up being better

    3. You should give it a try. I’ve thick and curly hair. I’ve recently started using a straightening brush, it gives me a very natural look. My hair is soft, a little wavy/straightish, its not greasy or sticky and no frizz too. you just have to use it on smaller sections of your hair.

    4. You should definitely try a straightening brush they look and are better for your hair

  2. I have both a flat iron and brush. The brushes don’t make your hair as straight as it would with a flat iron. Brushes also make your hair a little frizzy. It takes me about 15 mins to do my hair with a flat iron and about 10 with the brush. The brush is safer and better for everyday use but the iron gives a smoother, straighter finish. They are both very hot and take a while to cool down but quick to warm up.

  3. Best I have ever used is the flat iron by Karmin 😉

  4. I used to flat straightner every day but it takes a lot of time but it looked very fine and so flat .i use the brush now. it dosen’t look very flat but it’s easier and faster and not so bad .

  5. I have wavy frizzy hair. will the brush do the make my hair more manageable and frizz free like the look keratin treatment gives?

    1. It will definitely make it smooth and manageable, I do however recommend if your hair is naturally frizzy applying an anti-frizz serum to get the best look possible.

  6. I have a flat iron and a straightening brush. The flat iron takes way more time and leaves strange dents in my hair. So I bought a straightening brush and it takes half the time a flat iron would. It also makes my hair more silky and leaves no dents.
