Because You Deserve the Best
Remington Keratin Straightening Brush Review
If you have hair that’s prone to heat damage, and you’ve ever used flat tongs or a straightening comb, you’ll know that as great as these tools are, overuse can come at a price. Just like when using tongs or an electric straightening comb, there is still a real risk of harming extra sensitive hair.
Enter the Remington straightening brush. This as seen on tv hair brush straightener incorporates the healing powers of Keratin, with the aim of producing affects akin to straightening hair without heat used at all. So how does this hot air brush review vs others that don’t contain Keratin, and can the claims really be true?
How it works
There are many ionic hair brushes on the market, and the heated ceramic hair brush, although relatively new, is so successful that it’s hard to pick apart what’s effective and what just claims to be.
The Remington however truly is a ceramic brush with a difference, building in the healing powers of keratin and almond oil to not only straighten your hair at low heat, but add an additional layer of protection via the keratin and almond oil infused plates and bristles. Keratin is known to not only boost hair health but reduce frizz too, so an ionic hair brush with this built in is, in theory, a godsend for those with ultra frizzy hair.
Keratin and Almond Oil
Keratin is a protein naturally present in hair, skin, and nails, but it can also be found all over your body. The reason keratin is prevalent in parts of the body that are exposed to outside conditions, is that Keratin proteins are less prone to scratching or tearing than other cell types.
Luckily, Keratin isn’t unique to human biology and can be found in the feathers, horns, and wool of different animals. Keratin is the building block used to make many of our outer body parts, including hair, so it makes sense that scientists believe keratin to supplement and treat hair effectively.
Almond oil, an emollient, in theory can fill in gaps in your hair at a cellular level, helping smooth and remove kinks. Used as a balm or supplement, it is known to give a softer texture over time.
But can these treatments be effective when infused into a brush as it is in the Remington? Well, there’s only one way to find out. We tried it on all hair types to see the results for ourselves.
Remington Straightening Brush Review
So, the Remington immediately distinguishes itself from other products like the instyler straight up on paper. No other brush seems to be conceived with protecting hair in mind, and so we expect the Remington to be good on especially sensitive hair. But that’s not all: the same principles should make the Remington as good with hair that’s especially hard to tame, without too much loss of shine or volume.
Unlike some, the Remington opts for less control and instead offers three settings, on par with most hot air brush dryers, interestingly enough. With the heat settings ranging from 150°C – 230°C, this does cover most hair types, but we would worry that there’s maybe not enough flexibility for those with especially difficult hair.
So, with all of this in mind, does it actually work? And how does the Remington straightening brush review when used on different hair types?
4.4 – Extra Heat Protection For Hair Prone To Damage
The Remington Hair Straightener brush offers something the others don’t, an extra layer of protection. For many who have struggled with flat irons in the past, the idea of the
Remington conditioner brush, infused with both Keratin and Almond Oil, is very appealing. Although it won’t straighten as fast as some of the other brushes we’ve featured, it’s extra healing and defrizz properties mean this is a great choice for those with especially sensitive or difficult to control hair.
