I straighten my hair on a daily basis. For years I’ve been using a high end flat iron with ceramic plates. I say high end, because I can’t use ones you purchase at stores like Walmart. They simply do not work on my hair. I have extremely thick, wavy hair and it’s pretty long. Last summer I did a video review on my favorite straightener. I’ve been very faithful to that straightener, as it’s always done a great job on my hair.
And then I discovered the Sela Hairbrush Straightener. This thing changed my world! I was spending half an hour a day straightening my hair, and with this brush I can have the job done in less than 5 minutes. Mind blown.
Most recently, I received this Sela Beauty Steam Comb. Visually it’s a stunning product. Vibrant, candy apple red. It has an LED readout with your temperature and steam settings.
There’s also a water chamber that you remove and fill with water, to create the steam when you straighten your hair.
There are seven holes where the steam comes out when you are straightening your hair, and you need to make sure the arrows on this straightener are facing downward. There are rigid bristles not on just one side, but on both sides of this brush. They clamp down on your hair, and when the brush is clamped down, it activates the steam.
Like I said, I have very thick, wavy hair, and because of how the teeth of the brush are designed, my hair gets stuck in this thing – a lot. So, I can only use very small chunks of hair at a time to straighten it.
IT DOES WORK! It straightens my hair very nicely. You’ll see in the video below, how well it works. But because of how often my hair gets stuck in between the teeth, and having to use such small amounts of hair at a time, it’s pretty time consuming. So in my opinion, if I’m going to spend a good amount of time on my hair, I’ll just use my basic flat iron and skip all the extra steps of this steam comb. Plus, with a flat iron, you will get a very shiny, sleek look, because the plates are pressing down on both sides of your hair. With this brush, you don’t get that sleek look, because nothing’s pressing down on your hair like a flat iron.
So if you have hair like mine, and are looking for a time saver, I’d definitely recommend the Sela Hairbrush Straightener. You can see that video here:
Here’s my review on this Sela Beauty Steam Comb. As you can see in the video, it does definitely work. But for me, it’s a little too time consuming.
I think this steam comb would work best with someone with thinner, shorter hair. If you have hair like mine, it will take you a while. It will definitely do the job though! And right now you can purchase the Sela Hair Comb on Amazon for $66.00 shipped on Amazon!
