I adore hair styling my hair, from curly to straight and back to curly again so I’m always looking out for new things to try and there’s no better place to shop for a decent brush curling iron than on Amazon.com. Firstly, you get the best prices and secondly because there are always reviews from other customers so you get to know what to expect before trying the product out for yourself. Those reviews are always invaluable to me; I make a lot of my decisions just by reading them.
Recently I love styling with a brush curling iron. Having always used regular curling irons and curling wands to get ringlets or beach waves, I thought I’d try these out. I would rather try a few hair stylers out before settling on just one because there are so many out there it’s hard making that final decision. This might help you in making your choice as here are the top three based on my own experience.
Top 3 brush curling iron gadgets to turn you into a curling whiz
The Berta Hot Brush & Hair Curler & Straightener 3 In 1 Ceramic Hair Iron
I chose this one because it can do more than one thing. It curls and straightens hair so for me, it’s ideal because I change my style as often as I change my clothes! It’s also easy on the pocket so I wasn’t worried about parting with my money and free shipping is always a bonus (on Amazon.com).
It promises instant heat up and recovery with use after one minute and even heat distribution (this is important, hot spots can burn hair). It can curl without tangling and straighten without frizz because it has ceramic and tourmaline plates. It has adjustable temperature, important because this means it caters to all hair types (mine is quite thick so I can use the highest temperature).
The reviews on Amazon.com are mixed. I love this product because it leaves my hair nice and curly and the curls don’t drop out. The plates are rounded at the end so you don’t get a bendy kink (like you do when you curl with straighteners). Never use it on wet hair, always dry your hair first. I think it’s actually better for straightening but if you want an inexpensive product that does both straightening and curling – this is excellent.
Helen of Troy 1517 Brush Iron In White With 1 Inch Barrel
The second of my favourite brush curling irons is the Helen of Troy which is so inexpensive it’s barely noticeable - on Amazon.com. It’s quite large and gives big curls and waves but it’s only really suitable for long hair (shoulder length and longer) because of its size.
It has different heat settings too which is great so you don’t run the danger of burning your hair if you know what heat setting to use.
It’s very easy to style but no good for straightening but if you’re looking for tight curls give this one a miss. One downside, there’s no auto-shut off so be very careful to remember to switch it off.
Conair Infiniti Pro 1-Inch Nano Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Brush
Out of all three, this is my all-time favorite and on Amazon.com it’s a good purchase. It has a 1 inch barrel so is good for creating large curls and they last…and last. You can always trust Conair to deliver a quality hair styler and this is no exception.
The tourmaline technology gives a great sheen so my hair looks healthy and bouncy. It heats up really quickly and creates curls in seconds. The bristles don’t pull or snag so it’s comfortable to use too.
There are different heat settings too but just be careful to use the lowest first and move it up to what you need if you want to go higher. Reviewers mention it’s great for fine hair as well so I think this is an all-round winner!
Some of us with very short hair, but still hair on top that needs styling, need very small barrels on round drying brushes and styling sticks. The best one I ever had was a Babyliss purchased in the U.K. and works only on 220. The barrel I liked best was very small, about 1/2 inch, with small plastic teeth, no bristles. I cannot seem to find a good very small barrel blow dryer (which i prefer over a curling stick). Can you recommend something for people like me? Thanks
