The easiest way to achieve an at home blowout!
If you could only take one beauty item to a deserted island, what would it be? Most people would say foundation or concealer, but I would have to say my hair straightener. To some, that sounds insane, there’s no electricity – but hear me out. Some people never leave their house without wearing makeup. My hair is never down unless it’s straightened. I don’t identify myself with curly hair. Over the course of 15 years, my hair is either straight, wavy or in a top knot. With time, my hair has lost it’s curl memory and is frizzy and unruly. So when I was given the opportunity to try the DAFNI Straightening Brush – something that claimed to cut down my styling time, I was thrilled.
DAFNI is the Original Ceramic Hair Straightening Brush. Don’t confuse it with a hair straightener because I did. Although I love blow outs, I have too much hair to do it myself. I would probably need to hit the gym for a month in order to attempt maneuvering a blow dryer and brush over my head for an hour. Yes, it takes a professional stylist an hour to blow dry my hair -crazy I know! So I befriended the hair straightener. Hearing my hair sizzle and seeing my room physically fill up with the smoke from burned hair not only became fulfilling but desired. If the straightener didn’t reach 400 degrees, it wasn’t good enough. I loved being able to straighten my hair in less than 30 minutes. Lower temperature styling tools took longer and left my hair appearing rough and frizzy.
Unlike a traditional hair straightener, DAFNI only features an on, off button and functions at 375 degrees F; the ideal temperature to straighten hair. I love that the ceramic plate is wide so it covers a wider section of your hair. The bristles also have a cool spring feature that prevent you from burning your scalp due to steam or contact. DAFNI is simple to use, you can literally brush your hair from root to tip. The only rule you need to remember when using DAFNI is that your hair must be 100% dry or else your hair will sizzle. The DAFNI bristles are not heated so your hair needs to reach the inner portion of the brush in order for it to work. If you have a lot of hair like myself, it’s best to part your hair in sections.
Having dense, curly hair I like to run a second brush along with my DAFNI brush for a frizz free finish. This isn’t necessary if you have straight, fine hair. It took me awhile to learn and appreciate how to use my DAFNI brush. But once I did, I fell in love with straight hair that looks bouncy and natural as opposed to stiff and dry.
With regards to time, it takes me the same amount of time to straighten my hair with my DAFNI brush as it does with a hair straightener. Having said that, I prefer how my hair looks after using my DAFNI brush. Overall, I highly recommend the DAFNI hair straightening brush.
