Today I'm excited to share my updated hair styling routine and rave review for the Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush. Since cutting my hair as part of my summer capsule makeover my usual go-to styling routine hasn't been cutting it so I've had to re-learn how to do my hair. I've experimented here and there with different methods but hadn't found anything that worked perfectly for me - until I discovered the Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush.
I first discovered this magic tool while reading Emily's review on IntoTheGloss and was instantly intrigued. In her review Emily shared that this brush gave her smooth, effortless looking locks in only 10 minutes! As a lover of quick, effective routines I immediately began reading and watching review after review of this brush until I was convinced I had to try it for myself.
Since receiving it I have been absolutely blown away by this brush and can't say enough good things about it! Like Emily promised, I'm able to smooth my frizzy, thick air dried hair in 5-10 minutes without breaking a sweat.
To use it, I set mine to 390 degrees and section my hair into a few medium sized sections. Then, I brush each section out with my Mason Pearson Brush so that it's detangled - even though this looks and acts much like an actual brush you shouldn't use it on tangled hair. Next, I smooth over each piece slowly from root to tip making sure to curl the ends slightly. The end result is a the look of a blow out with the sweat that comes from using a blow dryer.
To show you just how amazing this brush is, I shot a quick demo and review that you can watch below or over on my YouTube channel. Thanks so much for watching!
