Simply Straight is a 2-in-1 hair product that takes the hassle out of straightening your hair. According to their commercial (see below) you no longer need to spray chemicals, bother with a blow dryer/hair brush combo, or use a flat iron to achieve salon quality straight hair.
How Does Simply Straight Work?
Simply Straight is essentially a hair brush that has ceramic covered bristles that straightens and brushes your hair simultaneously. The hair straightener lifts your hair at the root and gently heats around each strand without having to fry your hair with other damaging techniques.
Before you use this hair brush to straighten your hair you will first need to brush it with a regular hair brush to make sure that there are no tangles or knots. This will ensure that the hair brush works as effectively as possible. Also be sure that your hair is dry and free of any hair products such as hairspray or gel.
After that is done you pick a section of hair and brush it with the Simply Straight brush. This is not the same as using a normal brush since the purpose is to make sure that the hair stays flat against as many of the ceramic bristles as possible. You will actually use more of a twisting motion and you will also need to hold the strand of hair at the end with your free hand as you brush.
The heat control buttons on the Simply Straight help you to control the temperature of the brush, with the maximum temperature allowed being 450 degrees. If you have thin hair it is recommended that you use a low temperature setting of 365 degrees. Average hair types should use around 400 degrees, and thick hair should set the temperature to the highest setting.

If you’ve looked at other Simply Straight reviews you will see that while the majority of people thought that it worked great others did not. This is not surprising given that this is a 2-in-1 product. These types of multipurpose tools generally don’t work as well as something that is designed for one purpose, such as a flat iron. So if you are expecting to brush your hair out and straighten it at the same time you may find this is not the case. The process is more of a section by section straightening, but the hair must be thoroughly brushed prior to using it. As far as results go, hair types and individual techniques vary so there is sure to be mixed results. But this can be seen with any hair product. If you read other hair straightener reviews you will see a comparable mix of positive and negative consumer reviews (for the most part).
Simply Straight delivers on their promise that it can straighten your hair without having to use a separate brush and flat iron combination. This is not a bad product but opinions will vary as will results. To put it plainly, if you haven’t had luck with other hair straightening products and have had to depend on professional salon stylists to achieve satisfactory results, then this product probably won’t cut it. But if flat irons and hair products have been successful in the past then the hair brush will work for you.
