      1. EVA NYC HEALTHY HEAT STRAIGHTENING BRUSH

      This brush heats up to the same temperature as your favorite flat iron in just 30 seconds—except you can get a ’90s super straight finish in a single pass. It uses negative ions and far-infrared heat to seal in moisture and prevent frizz.

      2. CONAIR INFINITI PRO DIAMOND-BRILLIANCE CERAMIC HOT PADDLE BRUSH

      If you have thick hair, opt for a thermal brush with a wide surface area like Conair’s Paddle Brush. It’ll cover more ground so that you can work in large sections but still get the smooth finish you’re after. This brush is powered by ceramic and ionic technology to prevent heat damage, which is inevitable when you regularly use hot tools.

      3. DEAR DREW BY DREW BERRYMORE YOU ARE EFFORTLESS CERAMIC STYLING BRUSH

      For more control, invest in a straightening brush that has a clamp like this one from Drew Barrymore’s Dear Drew line. You’ll be able to glide the brush through your hair at the speed you want so that you don’t get dents mid-way down your strands from working too fast or too slow.

      4. REVLON PRO COLLECTION ONE STEP HAIR DRYER AND STYLER

      We’re highly skeptical of any product that sounds a little too good to be true, but Revlon’s 3-in-1 thermal brush is one of the exceptions to our rule. The tool dries, brushes, and straightens damp hair in one go. Its paddle shape speeds up the drying process to prevent heat damage so that your strands are dry, but not fried.
