My New Favorite Hairstyling Tool

I have a new favorite hairstyling tool. It is the Koolulu Magical Hair Styler 2 in 1 Ionic Hair Straightener Brush.

My mom gave me this brush after she had bought it on Zulily and didn’t care for it. I think she just didn’t give it a chance; my mom is the type person who doesn’t use much in the way of styling tools.

At first, I was skeptical of how well it would work, as I had tried a Vidal Sassoon round heated brush when I was a teenager. I could never figure out how to use it correctly at the time, but I think the problem was just my general cluelessness about hair and makeup at that age.  I tried using hot rollers for years and could never get the hang of it; I still have two sets but never use them.  For a long time in middle school and into high school, my staple was the medium barrel curling iron because it got that floofy curled and teased big bang look just right.  I even had a cordless curling iron that I would take on the road when I was on the volleyball team, but looking back now I don’t know what good that did because I styled my hair so geeky.

Since I’ve been older and wiser, and more practiced in fixing my hair, I have pretty well stayed with two hairstyles- either mid-length and wavy (I have a natural wave that I usually scrunch with some leave-in conditioner and mousse) or long and straight.  If I straighten my hair, I have been using a CHI hair straightener that functions as both a large barrel curling iron and flat iron. It is a nice tool, but I seem to always have static electricity and hair sticking to my face when I use it. It is a large barrel/wide flat iron, so it is not ideal to use with mid to short length hair.

The straightening brush features customizable temperature settings and ionic technology to reduce hair frizz. It heats up very quickly and I haven’t noticed any problems with static like using my CHI. The cord is a nice length and has a velcro strap to keep from knotting. The brush looks heavier than I would expect it to be, but it really isn’t that heavy.

It is a wide brush with straight bristles, which I find easy to use to straighten more hair faster.  I like the bristles compared to my flat iron because I feel like it helps keep the hair where I want it on the tool, whereas my flat iron has a slick flat ceramic surface that the hair can slide around on.

I have used the brush to both straighten my hair and straighten plus curl under the ends, both of which have received compliments.  I like curling my hair under sometimes, but I find it to be difficult to manage with a round brush and blow dryer, and I worry about damaging my hair with my large barrel curling iron.  Not to mention, I once got a round brush stuck in my bangs and had to cut it out… I’ve tried not to repeat that mistake at all costs.

With dry hair, using this brush I can style my hair in three minutes or less, which is fabulous.  I have between twenty and thirty minutes to get ready in the morning, from start to finish, so anything that can cut time is awesome in my book.

At the moment I have a bob that does not quite reach my shoulders. If my Mom had given me this product about three weeks earlier than she did, I probably wouldn’t have had around six inches of hair chopped off because of frustration with styling it!
