Braun Satin Hair 7 Hairbrush Review

Braun Satin Hair 7 hairbrush*: around £30 from Argos, Amazon and Tesco

It's been quite a while since I've used or owned a hairbrush; my everyday hair tools are a Tangle Teezer and a wide tooth comb and they're the only things I've brushed or styled my hair with for probably close to three years now. But my old faithful Tangle Teezer is beginning to look a little worse for wear with the bristles starting to bend around the edges, and so for the past few months I've been on the lookout for something new. Step in Braun's Satin Hair 7- where technology meets hairbrush. Oh yes, containing 'Iontech' technology this nifty little device works to reduce static in the hair leaving it smoother and sleeker just through brushing. And as someone who battles with static-y flyaways on a regular basis I thought this sounded like something I needed to try!

The sciency bit behind this is that hair generates its own positive charge of atoms on the surface of the strands, this causes them to repel each other which leads to that horrible static feeling in the hair. Once switched on the Braun Satin Hair 7 releases a jet of ions; ions are always trying to get back to a 'neutral' state and so efficiently absorb the positive charge from the hair. So what you end up with is hair that looks sleeker and shinier, and completely eradicates the unmanageable static buildup. The brush head itself is fairly large meaning it's great even for longer hair, and the cushion base is removable which is handy if you prefer brushes without these on. I do find that this isn't quite as gentle on my hair as the Tangle Teezer, however the rounded ends of the bristles glide nicely though the hair without snagging so wont cause damage. It uses three AAA batteries, but there's an automatic switch off so there's no need to worry about forgetting to switch it off and running them down within a day! I find that the static in my my hair tends to get worse at this time of year when the weather is warmer, but since using this I've not had to think about it at all.

All in all this is the ideal brush for me, usually brushing my hair makes the static become worse but this seems to get rid of it well (which in turn makes my hair look a lot nicer!) If you don't suffer with static and flyaways then this brush probably isn't going to do much for you and you'd be better off just going with something cheaper, but for certain people it will be an absolute lifesaver. If like me you look like you've been electrocuted when a balloon goes near your hair or brushing it causes it to 'stick' to the hairbrush, this is something you'll appreciate. While it's more expensive than a regular hairbrush, at just under £30 it's not going to break the bank and is well worth the price for what it does.

Is the Braun Satin 7 brush something you'd buy?
