A Smarter Way to Get Straight Hair
By Elise Minton Tabin |
We hear that stick-straight hair is making a big comeback, and one of the easiest ways to get the look has always been with a flat iron. As great as the tool is, the damage it does to your hair with its powerful heat isn’t anything great. If you become a slave to your flat iron, in due time, your hair will most likely become dry, brittle and prone to breakage.
If you weren’t born with straight strands and have to rely on hair tools to get the look, you may be happy to know there’s a new way to go about doing it that doesn’t require a blowdryer or a standard flat iron.

Enter: Haute Brush ($60). With 66 heated bristles, which also promote healthy hair follicles as the brush gently massages your scalp while you use it, it leaves your hair straighter in less time than it takes to use other straightening tools. The temperature can be controlled and it doesn't clamp down on your hair, so there’s less chance of burning and damaging it.
To use it, just brush your hair (make sure it’s dry and knot-free) like you would with a normal brush. Because it heats up, you’ll want to take your time and go slow. Pieces close to your scalp can be a little tricky to tame, but with some practice, it gets easier, leaving you with gorgeous, smooth strands.
