Spring is around the corner, and it's time to switch up not only our closet full of outfits, but our hair! After Winter, we use Spring as a time to literally blossom from the depths of your houses or apartments (especially if you're in the northeast). Since you'll be showing off your new outfits inspired by runway, why not show off that NEW hairstyle?

A Brush That Can Straighten Hair!? Apalus Review

Ever heard of a brush that's a straightener at the time time? Well, now you have! I was very skeptical about this product, but I just had to try it. DISCLAIMER: I received this deeply discounted, and I did pay for it!

Here's my experience:

Hair Type: I have natural/texurized hair.

How long it took to use the brush straightener: It took me about 15-20 minutes to use the brush straightener vs. 1 hour+ with a traditional flat iron.

Tips: I suggest using the brush straightener with clean, washed hair without excess products to avoid super flat hair with no volume.


Easy to use

Heats up quickly

Does not burn you

360 degrees rotating cord

No Shedding



Doesn't catch edges/baby hairs well

Flattens hair and lacks volume
