How does an Ionic Hair Brush Work?
Let’s talk science. First things first, you should know that your hair is made up of positive and negative ions. When you create friction by brushing your hair or towel-drying it, you strip your hair of negative ions. This upsets your hair’s natural state, causing frizz and static.
Fortunately, ionic hair tools such as brushes can reverse this effect. When you heat up an ionic hairbrush and brush your hair with it, you add negative ions back into your hair and restore its natural charge. That ultimately means you get hair that’s shinier, smoother, and less frizzy.
How is it different to a normal hair brush?
They are entirely different! They might look similar but that’s because they are both designed to glide through hair. A regular hairbrush is a manual tool whereas an ionic hairbrush is powered through electricity. The bristles are different as well.
A regular hairbrush will have nylon, boar or plastic bristles that are flexible, but ionic hairbrushes generally have rigid bristles that are made out of ceramic (or similar material) and heat up. These bristles help to straighten and smooth out hair.
Ionic Hair Brush Benefits:
- Seals and smoothen split ends. The negative ions bond with hair to close off broken hair cuticles.
- Makes hair softer and shinier. Ionic hair brushes lock in moisture to hair strands. The result is a shiny, soft, and healthy hair.
- Reduce drying time. Ionic hairbrushes are ideal for women who want to have great looking hair on the fly. They dry hair faster by causing water molecules to fall to the shaft much faster.
- Minimize heat damage. Ionic hair brushes speed up hair drying time, so you’re least likely to end up with burned hair or scalp.
- Eliminate frizz. Again, ionic hairbrushes bring back the lost negative ions to your hair, land so help eliminate frizz and reducing static.
- It is for everyone: your hair type and texture do not matter, this Ionic Hair Brush works for everybody
- Super portable: small, compact, fits in any bag and does not need electricity
