  1. How quickly can a hairstyle be created with this straightening brush?

    1. My hair is done within 15 minutes. I used to blow dry which took me 20-30 minutes and then go over with a flat iron to eliminate the frizz. I could never get a naturally straight look with a flat iron; my hair always looked heat processed and stiff. But with this, my hair is smooth with good movement.

  2. Is it a problem or painful if the bristles touch your head

    1. No, the tips of the bristles are the only part of the brush that comes into contact with your scalp and they stay cool.

  3. Does the hair straightening last in humid weather?

    1. For me, it lasts throughout the day. I am however not in a climate to answer your question although I would assume that it’s necessary to apply a specific hair product which will stop that annoying frizz in the humidity. I hope this helps.

  4. Can electric brush be used directly on wet hair or does hair have to be dried first?

    1. Hi Arlene, you should always use an electric brush on completely dry hair. Using it on wet hair will result in damage to your hair and ineffective results.

  5. How to clean product build-up on my hair straightening brush? I should maintain this, doing it once a week, but I haven’t and now I really need to get it done… What’s the most effective way to clean the brush?

    1. Hi Elyse,

      Some brushes conveniently come with a perfect sized brush for cleaning but for those that don’t come with a cleaning the brush it’s actually really easy and doesn’t require much effort at all.

      1. Ensure there are no strands of hair in the brush.
      2. Use a warm damp cloth and rub all over the brush, in between the bristles to remove the residue of product and dust in general.
      3. If just water isn’t enough, use a little soap or cleaning solution of some kind to get the gunk off the brush completely.

      Oftentimes, an old toothbrush is recommended for cleaning and this works well too, but make sure that the bristles aren’t too hard because this could scratch the brush and damage the materials, so be careful with this.

  6. How long does the straightening last with MiroPure?

    1. Hi, Samantha, this differs from person to person due to different lifestyles and environments but generally 2-3 days. Straightened hair may not last as long in humid environments or after physical activity for example.

    2. Mine lasts until my next shampoo, I only straighten my freshly washed hair. It gives me the best results and it lasts for until I need to wash it again which is two nights later.

  7. When is the best time to use a straightening brush?

    1. Hi, Lucy!
      It’s always best to use any kind of hot styling tool on completely dry and clean hair.
      Try to avoid straightening every single day, instead try straightening directly after washing, once you’ve allowed it to dry completely.

  8. How well do straightening brushes work compared to using a flat iron?

    1. Flatirons provide a straighter hairstyle overall, but there are other benefits to using a hair straightening brush like a fast styling time and less damage to your hair as a whole. To compare the two tools in greater detail, you can go over the differences by reading this article comparing flat irons and straightening brushes.

    2. My sister recently purchased the Miropure and she loves it. I tried it too, and am going to get one for myself!

  9. Some brushes look so similar, how can I decide which one to buy?

    1. Brushes like the Miropure, Head Kandy and Bearmoo all look very similar with very similar features but they have minor differences which can help you decide. Other brushes that look similar with almost identical features may only differ in price due to a less popular brand name. Your decision can come down to several factors such as the warranty on the device or the price. (Usually, this is the main difference between similar tools.)

  10. What is the exact size of the mini straightening brush called the Miuphro? Will it fit in a handbag easily?

    1. It’s precisely 7.1”, 1.7”, 1.5” – super small and lightweight.

    2. I purchased the mini Miuphro to take with me on business trips. It’s better than I expected as I thought it’d just be capable of straightening my fringe and the top layer of my hair but it’s actually powerful enough to straighten my whole hair in minutes, and that’s just on the medium setting!

  11. Do straightening brushes taker the knots out of your hair?

    1. You should always take the tangles out of your strands before running the electric brush through your strands.

    2. I’ve never used it without combing my hair first, but I’m sure it would remove small knots but to be on the safe side, I always brush my hair first.

    3. No, if the brush gets stuck halfway down your hair because you have knots, it’ll most likely damage your hair.

  12. Can the Uspicy get really close to the scalp?

    1. It has little plastic guards that prevent you from getting close but you can press it as close to your scalp as you want without getting burnt which is a great feature. It’s ideal for people with longer strands. The best brushes for getting really close to the roots are rectangular shaped brushes.

  13. I need a cordless tool for straightening. I’ve got several camping festivals ahead of me and I’d love to be able to leave my hair natural, but it’s not an option for me because it’ll be in my way and bothering me. I just need something simple that will keep my bangs out of my way! -any suggestions?

    1. There are several decent cordless several options on the market. You’ll need to make sure the battery is completely charged before going to the festival because when the battery is fully charged, most cordless flat irons allow only 30mins of styling time, so just a quick straighten each day is ideal. Here are some cordless flat irons to consider.

    2. I been using the NEXGADGET for the past year and haven’t had any issues. I’d recommend this tool. I love that it charges with a USB, I usually charge it up in the car when I’m away from any electric PowerPoints to charge.

  14. I live in Australia. Does the femjolie work in the 230V range?

    1. Yes, it is dual voltage with the range of 110-240V and works worldwide. You will have no problems using the tool in Australia. 

  15. I’ve noticed some brands include a heat resistant glove, is it necessary to use when straightening with hair straightening brushes or not?

    1. The hair can become quite hot after running the brush through your strands so it can be useful but I don’t think it’s necessary. In any case, the hair will cool down within 10 seconds and you’ll be able to move it with your bare hands. Some people find them useful, but others receive them with their tool and don’t use them.

  16. I bought the Karmin G3 Hair Brush and so far I really like it, also great for quick touch ups.
