I’ve been seeing hair straightening brushes a lot lately and as someone who has legit half wavy, half straight hair, I’m a good candidate to try them. I actually bought one, not this one, some bootleg brand, off Amazon awhile back. It barely worked and it was one of the few items I’ve actually bothered returning to Amazon. So, it goes to show, these guys aren’t all created one in the same.
A few things about the InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush
- $59.99 retail price
- Ceramic Heated Plates
- 7 Heat Settings: 330°F to 450°F
- Ionic Bristles
- Swivel Cord
- Automatic Shut Off
I have very thick, healthy hair that has never been chemically processed so I used this on the highest heat setting, 450 degrees. I found it worked best when using the brush underneath the section, going at a moderate speed.
I sectioned the top half of my hair up because the hair on the bottom is super wavy and takes the most straightening effort. While it didn’t straighten my wavy section to laser straight perfection, it didn’t bother me because it still left a little body at the roots.
The top half of my hair is quite straight so I was able to move through this part much faster, taking small sections.
In the end, I like the results I get from this. I think it’s a little faster than a flat iron, but certainly not half the time. I think it’s gentler and easier to use so you might be more likely to reach for this tool.
If you can use a hair brush, you can use this. I think it could be a very helpful tool for someone who is unable to use a flat iron due to a disability or arthritis maybe.

Do I recommend the InStyler Straight Up Ceramic Straightening Brush?
Yes, I do! I think it’s an effective straightening brush that makes life a little easier. The $60 price point is right on par for this quality styling tool.
I also have the InStyler Glossie Ceramic Styling Brush which is very similar but about $20 more expensive. Let me know if you want a review on that one.
