Will This Ceramic Brush Take Your Hair From Hot Mess To Sleek AF In 3 Minutes?


If your hair can get as fluffy as mine, you’ve probably tried a ton of hacks to reign it in a bit. I love technology, and I live to try innovative beauty products, so when I saw this ceramic straightening brush in California, I knew I had to try it. What really captured my attention was the promise of ‘professional-looking results in 3 minutes” because, let’s be real, finding 30 minutes in our busy schedules to do our hair is not a luxury most of us have! At this point, I was already convinced to try the Dafni Ceramic Heat Styling Brush, $100, but then I kept reading about even more benefits, like ‘less damaging for your hair,’ ‘more powerful than straighteners,’ which made me even more impressed. Surely there’s no better way to test the Dafni brush than my hair!

What it is: A ceramic-coated brush designed to straighten your hair without the traditional damage of flat irons in just minutes. The Dafni brush has seven times the surface area of traditional flat irons and is programmed to distribute a constant 185°C heat evenly. It can be used on any hair type.

What it does: The brush straightens hair quickly and efficiently with ceramic-coated bristles that reach from root to tip. Because the heat setting is much lower than flat irons, it doesn’t damage hair while still leaving it smooth, shiny, and natural.

What we liked: The main thing I LOVE about the brush is it makes doing your hair SO easy – and with my hair, that’s a BIG statement. This definitely was a lot quicker than straightening my hair, I spent about ten minutes doing this instead of the 40 minutes (minimum) I would usually spend. It also heats up in just one minute, so there’s no need to hang around when you’re getting ready in a rush. The end result wasn’t quite as smooth as you would get with straighteners, but if you have wavy to curly hair, this would probably be all you need. It’s also great because it doesn’t get super-hot: I didn’t burn my ears, I could handle my hair immediately after going through it, and it’s nice not to feel your hair sizzle. If your hair needs to be styled with heat, as mine does, this will definitely cut back on the heat damage you will accumulate using a blow dryer and straighteners. I let my hair air dry, brushed it through, sectioned it into four parts, and made my way through my hair, going over it until it was completely smooth.

What we didn’t like: My hair is pretty curly so it kept getting caught in the ceramic, which was kinda uncomfortable. You definitely need to have your hair thoroughly brushed out first, but if you have hair as curly as mine, that can sometimes be challenging, so it’s definitely not going to be one of those things that will detangle and straighten your hair. The ‘on’ button is also not very strategically placed, and I kept hitting it while I was using it, so that it kept switching off.

The Verdict: I would definitely recommend this! This is perfect for you if you’re on the go, traveling, or just busy and need a bit of smoothing without going to the salon. I used the brush on my sister Alya’s curly hair, and it worked SO well! I think if you have very curly hair like mine, it’s not going to give you the full effect you would get with straighteners, so this won’t be my new go-to, I’ll still use my flat irons, but I did really like that it gave my hair straightness and wave without weighing down my hair. My final verdict is it’s a really innovative product that will work amazingly for people with wavy to curly hair – it will give you a sleek finish with extra shine – but if you have super curly hair, depending on the final finish you want, you’ll still want to touch up with your straighteners or curling irons.
