[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to try a straightening brush after years to using a traditional hair straightener. Overall, I'm pleased with the brush and like it better for overall straightening. It did not leave my hair 'flat,' like many straighteners do. It straightened but still allowed my hair to have some life. It's easy to use. The only drawback is the power button is where my thumb sits, so I accidently turn it off while using and don't realize it at first. It heats up rather quickly.
