Pink Hair Straightening Brush from Oak Leaf

Last update: Aug 16, 2017 07:39, April Williams

Hello, I am Mary Elizabeth, and I am presenting my pink Oak Leaf detangling hair brush review.  My hair is shoulder length, and it gets quite tangled when I wash it because it has natural kinks and curls. It also gets wavy when it gets damp, and it looks frizzy on on rainy days. When I style my hair I like to be able to choose between a casual scrunched up look or a super sleek straight style (particularly for special occasions or going out). I am therefore always keen to hear about products for tangled hair and ways to achieve straight styles.  Ever since I discovered my ceramic straightening brush hair styling has been absolutely effortless for me. I’m not sure if this is the best electric hair straightening brush because this is the only one that I’ve tried but it certainly works perfectly for me and I would love to share my experience with you.

My First Impressions

My first impression was that the brush resembled a tradition brush and would, therefore, be easy to use – no awkward ceramic plates, no obvious heating elements, and no complicated, clumsy dials or switches. I noticed the cute blue digital LCD display on the handle, and I was pleased to note that it did not hinder the product in any way. It lies flat within the design of the handle so that you can simply hold it like a normal brush. In other words, I love the ergonomic design.

I understand that you need heat to style or straighten your hair, and I am also very aware of how hot straightening products can get. I don’t want to end up with split ends and hair that is dry, frizzy and heat damaged. I was therefore pleased that the temperature could be regulated and able to be in control of how hot I chose to have the ceramic straightening brush.

The body of the brush is made of a frosted pink plastic, which I love. I am a girl, but not really a fan of hot pink, but this particular shade is subtle yet sophisticated. The same is true of the elegant black trim on the handle. Overall, it looks great! The bristles are also made of plastic, and each bristle has a soft, red plastic tip.

The brush itself is about 12 inches long, and the shape of the head is oval.

Included with the device in the box were instructions and a smooth black storage case to keep the product safe which is ideal for helping to keep your place tidy as well as for travel.

First-Time Testing

I plugged the straightening brush into the outlet in my bedroom. I was really impressed that the seven-foot long cord allowed the brush to reach my dressing room table where I keep my hair styling products. The cord is attached to the brush with a 360-degree rotating cord which is perfect for ensuring comfortable mobility of the brush while preventing the cord from tangling or knotting.

It takes just two minutes to heat up to 180° C, and about five minutes to reach 210° C from zero.

It is a little heavier than traditional flat iron hair straighteners, yet it is still light enough to brush your hair well, detangle it and provide a comforting head massage.

Using the Oak Leaf Brush

There are buttons on the handle next to the LCD display to adjust the heat up or down. If these buttons are pressed simultaneously, the display switches between Celsius and Fahrenheit according to your own personal preference.

It heats up to 230° C (450°F), which is hot enough even for really thick or curly hair. I managed to straighten and get a professional looking result in less than 10 minutes.

I only use it on completely dry hair. I pull small sections of hair with my hand or another brush and then gently pull the brush downward. You can adjust the temperature according to your hair type or the style you want to achieve.

Anti-scald Design: The brush is made with an insulated inner sleeve and a row of anti-scald teeth on the outer edge. The rest of the bristles have protective tips to prevent you from burning your scalp when you want to get as close as you can to the roots.

Safety Feature: For safety, the Oak Leaf straightener turns off automatically after 30 minutes just in case you forget about it or get distracted. To use it again, simply turn it back on. Dual voltage supports all voltage worldwide (110-240V – 50/60Hz), and it comes with a certified approved plug.

My Review Conclusions

I love this product because it is like two in one – a combination of a hair straightener and a brush. I prefer it to traditional straightening irons because it does not have ceramic plates that can break or damage the hair cuticle. Also, I love that I am completely in control of the temperature. I am so pleased with the professional looking results I can get for a special occasion.

The Oak Leaf detangling hair brush heats up really quickly, and I am reassured by the automatic 30-minute shut-off feature as well as by the anti-scald bristles. I can use it when my hair is knotty, and it smooths out the tangles without causing damage, painful pulling or breaking.

It also great because it can be used like a normal brush which is pulled gently through your hair it doesn’t make it static (nobody wants static hair). The heat is evenly distributed from root to tip providing a final result of shiny, smooth, healthy locks that looks well cared for.

I would definitely recommend this product as a gift for someone special or for yourself.

  1. Hi, I recently bought an ionic straightening brush, but it doesn’t really work, is this better than that? i have very wiry, layered hair, so does this really act like a straightener, of more just like a detangling brush?

  2. Trina

    Hi, Carina! What brand of straightening brush do you use?
    In my opinion, this one works perfectly for mildly wavy hair. And will be useless for curly hair. I advise paying attention to more powerful models. Look here: for appropriate model.
    Good luck!

  3. How long does it take for it to heat up before you can start using it?

    1. Trina

      It depends on how high you set the heat. My brush is set for 180, which doesn’t take longer than two minutes to heat up. It is very efficient.

  4. Does this brush burn your scalp?

    1. Trina

      Not at all, the bristles have rubber tips so the hot part can’t touch your skin. I have heard of people saying that these rubber tips have fallen off on theirs, so I guess if they did happen to fall off it could burn your scalp so just beware of that. I haven’t had any problems with mine falling off though but I will keep an eye on them too.

  5. Can this brush be used on damp hair?

    1. No, I definitely wouldn’t. It will fry your hair if it is even slightly damp. Wash and blow dry the night before you use it so that your hair is clean and fresh. Be sure to use a heat protection spray or frizz tamer.

  6. Is it a durable tool, do the little red tips fall off?

  7. So far so good, I can say it appears well made. Hopefully, I can say the same thing a few months down the line. 

  8. Is it necessary to section the hair to get a good overall result?

    1. This actually depends on your hair type and how much hair you have. For people with thick hair, and a lot of it- it’s definitely recommended to section it to achieve a thorough straightening. But if your hair is fine and you don’t have a heck of a lot, then you can get good results by simply running the brush through your strands.

  9. I straighten my hair literally in like 15 minutes, I do feel Iike you can probably go over your ends with your regular straightener, but other then that I recommend you all to get it!

    1. Yes, you are right – if you’re after a perfectly straight hairstyle. Hair straightening brushes are ideal for getting rid of flyaways and frizz but not providing a “pin straight” hairstyle.
