Does Simply Straight work?

The ceramic hair straightening brush by Simply Straight is one of the best hair brushes 2017 has to offer. The Simply Straight straightener can easily transform hair of any kind to a long-lasting modern, straight, sleek look. The JML company also has an additional brush variant which is known as the Simply Straight Professional Pro, it has a few more advanced features than the brush I am reviewing today but of course, with a slightly higher price, you can compare the two brushes yourself to see what is the most suitable for you. Among the many Simply Straight brush reviews, I want my review to be a thorough as possible so that you have a true insight of what to expect from the brush before making a purchase.

The Dafni and Simply Straight hair straightening brushes are both equally as popular as each other.

While both of these brushes have their similarities, they certainly have their differences too. This comparison chart should help you decide which the best option for you is. Depending what features are most important for you will help you make a decision.

  1. I brought the simply straight because I wanted to straighten my own hair giving my mom a break, but then I saw videos of woman doing it sections, which I’m unable to do because I’m only one handed, so could I still use the simply straight brush anyways?

    1. I think, yes. It seems to me a straightening brush is the only one straightener which you can manage with one hand. You can skip this step (I mean doing hair sections). If your hair is not that fizzy, it will work. Also, try to use oils for heat styling (argan and coconut are good). They will make the process more efficient.

  2. I have been considering buying this product for a while now. I have fairly thin hair which is wavy and I am just concerned about the damage it could do to my hair; any thoughts or suggestions?

    1. Damage would be minimal, depending on the frequency of use. I recommend you to use a light hair protection product and gradually increase the temperature as it shouldn’t need to be extremely high to be able to straighten your hair seen as it’s thin.

  3. My daughter’s hair is thick and I often straighten hers. It does the job well; you just need to work with small sections of hair at a time. Also, make sure the hair is completely dry.

  4. I purchased Simply Straight went home and plugged it in. Does not work or heat up! Defected what a disappointment.

    1. If goods you bought turn out to be faulty or do not look or work as advertised, the seller must repair or replace them free of charge or give you a price reduction or a full refund. So I advise you to go back to the shop and get a new brush.

    1. You can definitely use it after you’ve washed your hair and allowed it to completely dry.
      Using this after every wash will ensure your hair is frizz-free and smooth to the touch.

    1. Claudia, if you use the lowest temperature and a light heat protectant, this is a suitable tool for styling your hair type. But you won’t need anything more than the lowest temperature.

    1. Hi, Rachel.

      You must have the device set to Celsius, and in this case, 230 degrees Celsius is the maximum temperature. You can switch the temperature to Fahrenheit by holding down both the “+” and “-“ at the same time. I hope this helps!
