Don’t Forget to Enter our Simply Straight Hairbrush Contest!

To tell you the truth I was pretty sure this was another gimmick product. I have tried so many As Seen On TV beauty products and most of them fail to live up to half the claim. The Simply Straight brush had been sitting by my desk for over a week, I wanted to try it but it seemed like it would take too much time and probably just not work.


So last night I was catching up with a little Big Brother online and thought, heck I’m just sitting here. I will just try the brush while I sit here and see if it even does anything. I grabbed a quick before snap just in case. Then started my episode and plugged in my brush. I was shocked how quick it heated up and love the screen that shows exactly what temp its at. Once the brush was heated I ran it through my hair in sections as I sat watching my show. No mirror, or any other kind of brush just the Simply Straight. When the commercial came on I strolled into the bathroom ready to see half curly, half straight hair. Even with blow drying and a flat iron I have a hard time getting my hair perfectly smooth. So no way a brush was going to even come close to straightening my hair.



Well lo and behold I look in the mirror and my hair is straight. Like pin straight, its not hot, doesn’t smell fried and the usual wavy bits were just smooth and straight. The craziest part this took only 5 minutes, without a mirror and without really an effort besides a brushing motion. I was shocked how well it worked, I put it in a ponytail for bed last night and woke up this morning. When I removed the elastic my hair was still straight! That never happens my curl always fight back at night. I have to say I was a skeptical as they come and they changed my mind. The Simply Straight brush straightened my hair without products, or damaging it with excessive heat. I rarely straighten my hair due to the damage it causes and the time to get it straight but will be doing it a lot more often, due to the amazing brush.
