Hello, I am Mary Elizabet, and I am presenting my pink Oak Leaf detangling brush review.
My hair is shoulder length, and it gets quite tangled when I wash it because it has some natural kinks and curls. It also gets wavy when it gets damp, and it can look pretty fuzzy 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.

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 do not want to end up with split ends and hair that is dry, frizzy and heat-damaged. I was therefore pleased that the temperature would be regulated. I was also pleased to be assured that I would be in control of how hot I chose to have this particular styling product.
The body of the brush is made of a frosted pink plastic, which I love. I am a girl, but I do not like bright fuchsia or shocking pink, but this particular shade is subtle yet sophisticated. The same is true of the elegant black trim on the handle. 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 of the model is oval.
Included with the device in the box were instructions and a smooth black storage case to keep the product safe. It is ideal for helping to keep your place tidy as well as for travel. Simply place the convenient portable travel case in your bag!
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 end which is perfect for ensuring good 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 to make your locks shine.
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 great, professional looking result in less than 10 minutes.
I use it on 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, 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.
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 am completely in control of the temperature. I am so pleased with the professional looking results I can get for a special occasion.
It 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 feels great because it can be used like a normal brush which is pulled gently through your hair without creating static. As well as feeling relaxing, the heat is evenly distributed fro root to tip. The end result is shiny, healthy locks that look well cared for.
I would definitely recommend this product or buy it as a gift for someone special.
