Hey everyone I’m Jada. I have always had very curly hair and somedays it’s great and I love it; but other days I absolutely hate it and wish it was straight. I really like the way my hair looks straightened but it typically takes me about 35 minutes to straighten all of my hair with my flat iron. As a hair stylist it is important to me to have my hair be exactly how I want it and it is the same for my clients.
Many people have told me that they like my hair straight more than they do when it’s curly. Well that was like a punch in the gut because every single day I wake up to my hair being curly. Or I’ll be having a great hair day and then I need to take a shower, and poof it goes back to all frizzy.
I saw an ad on TV while I was at work at the salon for a hair straightening brush called the “Simply Straight” brush. It looked amazing and I really wanted to try it out. But when I went online to go buy one I saw that there a ton of bad reviews about it. Many people said that the heat dial was too easy to touch and so the brush would get hotter or cooler which messed up their hair. After doing a lot of research I finally found one with amazing reviews and free extras.
I found the USpicy brush. The USpicy basically is the same thing as the one I saw on TV but has more features, free extra items, and almost 500 positive reviews! The USpicy has a heat locking option so that I can choose exactly what temperature I want and then lock it in so that it stays. Others said that other brands that don’t lock the heat temperature would work well on one spot of hair and then it seemed like it wasn’t working on another spot. Then they would realize the temperature changed. One girl even said that she melted a chunk of hair off because she thought she had it on a very low setting and was moving it slowly and burned her hair off!
Needless to say I did not want to risk burning any of my hair off or a client’s hair just to straighten hair. The USpicy also has an anti-scalding setting so that it doesn’t burn my head as I’m using it. Mine also has 7 heat levels rather than 4 like most other brushes do, so I can make it however warm I want and do exactly whatever I want to my hair or a client’s hair.
I used it a lot at home and it cut down my straightening time from 35 minutes to about 12 minutes. Now it takes me so much less time to get ready in the morning and I can enjoy my straight hair. Since bringing it to work it has been a huge hit with my coworkers and clients. Two of the other stylists have gotten the same one that I have and love using it.
Now that I can straighten my hair quickly and beautifully I don’t have to spend as much time getting ready each day. Secondly I have been able to reduce my hair styling time at the salon and get more customers in so it has actually helped make me a little more money which is awesome. All of my clients love the hair straightening brush.
Before buying my hair straightening brush I had to make sure I did a lot of research. It seems that there are definite knock-offs of the real deal or ones that pretend to be good but really don’t even straighten hair at all. That’s why I looked up a lot of hair straightener reviews.
So after reading many different hair straightener reviews I decided that the USpicy hair straightener was by far the best. Not only did it actually work to straighten hair quickly and easily without burning it but it also has the best price. There are others that can be found cheaper but the reviews I read on those were quite bad. So don’t even bother with those because it will all be in vain.
The USpicy is the best priced around and there are tons of reviews about it to prove that it really is the best. There are for sure other ones out there that are far more expensive but they don’t offer any benefit over the USpicy hair straightening brush. In fact, most of them have less features than the USpicy which is a little mind blowing to me since the others are more expensive.
One of the biggest reasons I like the USpicy over all the others is because it has a better temperature gauge. There are 7 different temperature levels that can be selected whereas on others they typically have 5 or some even have only 3 heat levels. I like having many different levels because there is definitely different temperatures that need to be used whether hair is wet, has product, is thick, is thin, wavy, curly, and so on. I have tried many other hair straightening brushes and having the 7 different levels of heat is an absolute must.
One thing that cannot be overlooked when getting a brush for hair straightening is anti-scalding. You would not believe that some of the other brands are not anti-scalding. When I tried other ones I accidentally burned my scalp multiple times because the bristles didn’t have anti-scalding tips. They get away with it because I’m only supposed to brush hair out with the bristles pointing up, but that isn’t always easiest. Anti-scalding on the USpicy is absolutely necessary to make sure you don’t burn your skin or your hair while straightening it.
Another feature that I like is that the bristles are different sizes which allows brushing hair to be done more easily. The brush has the ability to grab a larger portion of hair and then split that into smaller portions to get each hair more individually which means I don’t have to brush as much to get it straight or untangled.
There are many other features I love about it like an auto 30 min shut off just in case I leave it on it doesn’t rack up my electricity bill or burn something. It’s also smudge and fingerprint free so it doesn’t look nasty sitting on my counter.
There are a lot of hair straightener reviews out there which is why I compiled my own to get all the questions answered. The USpicy Hair Straightening Brush is the #1 best anywhere, hands down.
Well I’ve told you guys a little about the very best flat iron that there is out there and how it’s not even a flat iron! I couldn’t believe how easy, quick and comfortable it was to use the USpicy hair straightening brush. I have been using flat irons for years and they take forever to straighten my hair! After using the USpicy brush at home I actually took it to my salon where I work because a few clients wanted to see it and try it out.
Even taking it to work and trying it on other clients I couldn’t believe how much easier it was to use than a normal ceramic flat iron. Obviously I didn’t keep using it because I didn’t want all my client’s hair in my own brush. I bought a second one because they are not very expensive at all and I keep it at the salon now.
But I have many of my clients who now request that I use the USpicy hair straightening brush over the ceramic flat iron because of how much faster it goes and it leaves a very nice shine on everyone’s hair. I like it a lot at work too because it goes so much faster I am able to see a few more clients a day which means more cash in my pocket when the day is over.
For my personal use I really do think this is the newest and best flat iron out there. This has truly replaced my flat iron that I had used for years because it looks better. Typically, I brush my hair with a normal comb to work out as many knots as I can. Then I will use a heat protector spray to make sure the heat doesn’t damage my hair as I use it. Then I personally like to add a bit of Moroccan Argan Oil which helps keep my hair healthy and helps give a great shine and lay down even more flat.
After combing really quickly and adding the spray and oil to my hair I simply grab a section of hair and start near the base of the hair at the roots with the bristles pointed up and pull my hair through the straightener brush. Using the USpicy I typically run my hair through it twice or at most three times and it’s perfectly straight. So it takes me about a total of 15 to 20 sections per section of hair that I do. After everything is said and one I am don’t with straightening my hair in about 12 minutes.
I have used a normal flat iron for years and typically it takes me about 35 mins to do all of my hair with a straight iron because I have to go much slower to make sure it flattens down all the way. Then on top of that I can’t do as much hair at once as I can with the USpicy.
When it comes to what is the best flat iron around, there is no question in my mind at all that the USpicy hair straightener is by far the best and is actually much more affordable than other straighteners. I wouldn’t recommend cheaper ones because they don’t have as good of features and can burn the hair really bad.
