Brush Your Hair Straight ft. Irresistible Me
There's this hair straightening brush trend that's been going around lately and it had me so intrigued. I found it crazy how you could just run a simple brush through your strands and it'd quickly alter your natural hair into silky straight hair. In reality, I thought it too good to be true. But when Irresistible Me contacted me and offered me the chance to try out their Jade Hair Straightening Brush*, I jumped at the chance. I've been testing it out for a few weeks and I'm ready to share my thoughts on it.

The hair brush comes in a gorgeous jade colour, which I really like. The bristles are strategically placed at a distance to prevent your hair from snagging onto it. The brush itself is also fairly large, meaning you'll be able to cover larger sections of your hair making it supposedly faster than a flat iron. Irresistible Me claims that the tourmaline infusion in the brush emits rich amounts of negative ions to moisturize and hydrate your hair. They also claim that it is anti-scald & anti-static for virtually no hair damage. The Jade Brush is able to hold temperatures ranging from 270°F to 450°F. It also includes an LCD screen, where you can view the settings, and has an 8ft. swivel cord. Last detail that I must mention, the voltage on this brush is universal, meaning you can take it with you for travel (though you may need a plug adaptor in some countries).

Right off the bat, I switched the settings onto the highest temperature. I was pleasantly surprised at how fast the temperature rose (it's displayed on the LCD screen). In less than 30 seconds, the brush went from no heat to 450°F. Contrary to what I initially thought, the way to use this is by taking part of your hair and slowly brushing through it with the tool. Agreeably to Irresistible Me's claims, I was able to go through my hair easily and quickly since the brush was able to accommodate larger sections of my hair.
My hair is naturally straight with some waves through it. The Jade Brush was able to get rid of those waves, making it nicely straightened. However, I do have to slightly disagree with their anti-static claim as my hair was a bit static the first time I tried it out. Though it might be due to the fact that the winter weather was cold & dry, making it static prone. After experiencing this, I make sure to prevent that from happening again by using some of my Ouai Finishing Creme.
The first time I tested this out, I was with a friend with a different hair type than me, so we decided to test it out on her as well. She typically has extremely thick, wavy hair with lots of volume. When she straightens her hair, she looks for the end result to resemble silky straight hair. Though this did help to straighten her hair, it did not give her to outcome she was looking for. It didn't get rid of her volume the way a regular flat iron achieves, however I was pretty impressed that it did in fact straighten her hair.

With that said, I give this a thumbs up & recommend it to people with hair similar to mine. I think this would work better for people with thinner hair. It's a perfect tool to use when you're in a rush and need to give your hair a quick touch up. The Jade Brush is also ideal to take on vacation with it having universal voltage, so I'll be taking it with me on future trips.
