Remington Keratin and Argan Straightening Brush Review

Remington Straightening Brush Review

Best straightening brush for thick hair

I straightened my hair after almost 5 years so I can't be called a pro but I have still clocked a fair bit of hours straightening my mane in the mid 2000's when it was all the rage. My GHD's from those days are still going strong so I guess that was money well spent!

I'm sure a lot has changed in the hair tools department since those days, the latest being the Straightening brushes. I was recently sent this Remington Keratin & Argan Oil infused Straightening Brush to try out. Having had such a great experience with Remington's Hair Curling set (Its a must have!), I was beyond excited.
Part of the excitement must be the nostalgia of days gone by when I wouldn't survive without my trusty GHD's even on a holiday. I tried this nifty gadget the same day it arrived and even did a few Instagram Stories for some good before/after shots and my first impressions.

These days, I'm quite fuss-free when it comes to my hair. I like 'em long & wild. I wash them, air dry them, apply some smoothening serum and rock 'em waves in full glory. And I don't comb/brush them. Never done that! It takes away my beloved waves and gives me a frizzy mess instead. I find I look & feel most like myself when my hair are au natural and all over the place.

I am pleasantly surprised with this Remington Brush. I had my reservations but boy this guy performed. It made my hair straight, sleek & manageable. I felt like a teenager again.

Did it make my hair frizz-free? A little. Not completely. I'm never sold on claims like Keratin & Argan Hair Oil infused ceramic plates!! I mean seriously? So I'm not even gonna judge the device on this advertising ploy.

What I loved about this brush was that it glided right through my hair. I combed by hair, made a few sections and slid it through. The hair came out nice and straight. The Ceramic bristles are protected by rubber so it protects scalp and fingers from the heat, which also means I can achieve straight hair from end to end, no kinks whatsoever. The straightening brush didn't give me pin straight hair, instead they looked more like naturally straight. The more I brushed it through, the straighter they became so you can definitely chose the kind of look you want to go for. I'd suggest letting it slide through slowly (as in traditional metal plate straightener) so hair can come in contact with the heating bristles for a few more seconds.
The brush heats upto 230° C in 30 seconds, has 3 settings (I use the max), can shut off automatically and comes with a 3 year warranty. The swivel cord & worldwide voltage makes it a perfect travel companion too.

Remington Ceramic hair brush review

The era of straightening brushes is just beginning so I'm hoping Remington's next in line would be tad less chunky/heavy and also comes with a heat protectant pad or something as the brush handle gets quite hot. I luckily have a silicone pad where I put mine while I made Instagram stories & recorded my first impressions. The handle never gets hot so that's a plus.

Do I like Remington's Straightening brush? Yes.
Would I recommend it? Yes, If you're in the market for a straightener, this Remington one is a good pick. Pricewise, it's mid-range at $199 NZD but I'm sure you can score it for cheaper when Harvey Norman or Briscoes have their sales going on.
If you currently have a trusty straightener, I wouldn't rush to buy it as you'd still be practically buying a straightener, albeit the one that is quicker and easier to use.
