~ What is it? ~
The Denman Thermoceramic Straightening Brush is a brush with two clamp like sides filled with natural boar bristles, under the bristles is a ceramic coated vented plate that allows you to straighten your hair as you dry it.
~ Why did I buy it? ~
I bought this a good few years ago when I was in college doing a hair and beauty course, I saw it when I was in a hairdressing supply shop and thought it would be a handy item to add to my kit bag, not only that I thought it would come in useful for my own hair too. I paid around £10 for this and I thought it was money well spent. Denman have a good range of brushes and the classic Denman brush is one of my favourite.
~ Is it any good? ~
During my college days I ended up using this a lot, not only did I use it on my 'Sally' practise head, I used it when doing the other girls hair and I used it on a few clients. When I was in college straight hair do's were all that people wanted so I found that after blow drying peoples hair using a brush and hair dryer I would then use this at the very end to straighten it out more than I had already done, it left people hair really shiny and quite straight and with some people this was enough alone, but other times I would feel the need to use hair straighteners to complete the look.
To use them you simply clamp the two sections of the brush around a section of hair and pull it through whilst holding the hairdryer over it, they pull the hair straight and the ceramic plates heat up slightly to help straighten the hair out further.
The vents in the brush allow the hot air to penetrate through the brush easily.
The ceramic plates and natural bristles help leave your hair glossy and lustrous, soft and easy to manage.
The brush is quite easy to hold and it feels like your running hair straighteners through your hair.
I find that when I use these they do leave my hair pretty much as straight as it's going to be but thicker hair may require the additional use of hair straighteners to finish it off.
~ Overall Opinion ~
I am impressed with this brush, I thought it would be a bit gimmicky but it does seem to work. They are still in good condition now even though they were kept in my kit bag for years with lots of other hair accessories. I still use them now occassionally but I tend to let my hair dry naturally more often these days so then I will use my hair straighteners instead, but if I do blow dry my hair I will grab these.
You can start and finish the whole job using these you don't have to use them just for finishing it off. In college we had to use our blow drying skills so that is why I would use these at the end, however they do seem to work better if you just use these alone.
I find they work best on towel dried hair rather than dripping wet hair, and my hair always looks very glossy after using them.
You can buy them on Amazon priced at around £11.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A good brush by Denman.
