I’ve grown to love my hair over the years since I tend to get so many sweet comments about it, and so I usually opt for doing my hair in a more natural way – which basically translates to air drying. It’s not that I no longer like the look of straight hair, it’s that I always, always, always get too tired and discouraged to straighten my hair half way during the process. For most people, people would say I have been blessed with thick hair, some days I feel like I am cursed. Having a full head of thick, heavy hair isn’t always that’s cracked up to be! One of those cons involve styling my hair – it often takes a long time to do anything beyond air drying. So with this predicament always in the back of my head, I was intrigued when I was introduced to Luma Brush.
Luma Brush is a hair straightening tool that claims that it will dramatically lower your styling time and be about 10 times faster than other ordinary flat irons. If it takes you normally 20 minutes to straighten, then it should only take you 2 minutes with the Luma Brush. This type of claim certainly pulls me in and makes me want to jump for joy because of how amazing it sounds!
Designed with a wide, 3D hot ceramnic surface and spring-backed, plastic heat-insulated bristle, the Luma Brush was created so you would not have to ever section your hair off using clips and spend countless minutes going over the same part again and again. With a temperature that goes up to 365 Fahrenheit in just one minute, I was hopeful that this product would be a winner! It’s a type of tool that I, someone who lacks time to do much, seeks for!
Was my hair stick-straight after 2 minutes? Sadly, no.
Was my hair noticeably straighter looking in about 5 minutes? Yes!
For the most part, my experience was a positive one! Keep in mind, my hair is very thick and I want to say that it really depends on what type of hair you have for this product to be a complete hit. When I straighten my hair with a normal flat iron, I typically straighten it to the point of stick-thinness – or as best as I can! Otherwise if I don’t do that, I’m left with still a big head of hair, but slightly straighter. It’s not a look I usually stop at.
There is something very nice about having your hair brushed and straightened at the same time – it leaves your hair feeling very smooth. Plus when you ask a girl with naturally wavy hair/curls to BRUSH her hair, it better be for a good reason!
I also was happily surprised at how much my hair DID NOT smell like burning hair particles. The hair straighteners I’ve used in the past have usually always heated up to about 400 degrees. This probably made a difference in the level of straight my hair would become, but it also left my hair stinky and I hate that! Even covering it up with heat protectant before and after doesn’t do much!
I loved this for a quick look, although not 100% close to my preferred straightness, but it certainly did the job, fast and efficiently. I’d be really curious to know how other types of hair work. I’d recommend watching the video I shared above because it shows two types of hair different to mine that seemed to have been a hit!
Would I recommend?
Yes! I had success, and would be that other hair types would have even better success!
Is the price good?
Selling for $79, I’d say YES! Hair straighteners that I consider good are well over $80, so this fits in that category of worth the price.
It was really fast. It’s as simple as brushing your hair, and loved that it did not make my hair smell.
It didn’t get stick-thin for me, but it still straightened fairly well.
