You know how I titled this blog She’s A Hot Mess? Well, I named it after me really. Every day of the last school year, I had my weird concoction of hair ( no offense to ANY one here, but I possess ethnic girl hair, white girl hair and old lady hair with all the gray) up in a bun thing ALL. YEAR. LONG. I didn’t let it down to look nice and I certainly did not attempt to style it at all. I was, in fact, a hot mess, all year long. I hate doing my hair and my makeup. I have no one to impress, I am married and my hubby gets me just the way I am. But, listen up, don’t be like me. Do your freaking hair. Make yourself pretty. And why would I say that? Because I got a new brush to try (for free for my honest opinion) and it has changed my life. Seriously. It’s that good. Today I am going to introduce you to Adda Bell, a straightening brush that will change your life!

Let her sleep for when she wakes she will move mountains
It is true that if you love someone, you should just let them sleep. What is not true for me? No amount of beauty sleep will ever leave me beautiful in the morning. It is a fact that I resemble something of a cross between Medusa and that work out guy with the curly afro? What was his name? No matter, you get the point. I need as much help in the morning that I can get. If you recall from What Do Moms Do All Day, I am late to wake and have zero interest in playing around in the morning. So when Adda Belle reached out to me to try this straightening brush, I thought what the hell. I will give it a shot.
Great Things Come In Small Packages.
My package came quickly and the only issue was that the package did not come to my home but directly to the Post Office. That was is not the fault of Adda Belle, but rather I think that most shipping companies do not like to ship to my home. Oh well.
It came in a big padded envelope, and within was a brown box. Pretty plain and standard. Inside the box was a perfectly packaged straightening brush and manual. Upon further inspection, nothing was damaged in any way.
It’s Gettin Hot In Here
The directions are pretty straight forward:
- Start with dry clean hair
- Pull small sections thru the brush
That’s really it. It also says to turn the straightening brush up all the way (450 ºf ) and adjust down as needed. I kept it at that temp because my hair is so weird and hard to straighten.
Yea, But What Are The Features Of The Straightening Brush?
I get it, you want to know why this straightening brush is what you need and why right? Well, aside from the fact that you are saying goodbye to your clunky straightening iron, it’s the EASIEST THING EVER! As simple as brushing your hair. And it heats up in 1 min!
I was skeptical when I saw the claim that it’s almost impossible to burn yourself. Challenge accepted! I brushed my hair expecting to burn the crap out of my ears and neck, like always. Not this time ladies! I did not burn myself with the bristles at all! But, a word to the wise: The back of the straightening brush gets a touch warmish (maybe even hot) so I would not let little ones use without supervision.
The other feature that I didn’t think I would care much about that I am actually grateful for is the lock feature. After selecting the temp you want, you tap the power button and boom, it locks it in for you. Why do you need this? Because the temp buttons are where your hand goes and often when you are brushing your hair you roll your brush, thus either turning it off all the way or changing the temp completely. You know why they added this? Because Adda Belle thought of everything!
YOU NEED IT!
If you are still with me, then you must value good hair. I do too. I am also lazy AF. But I do still brush my hair (most days) and the extra second of plugging it in and minute it needs to warm is not going to be such an impact on my day. No, the opposite is rather true in this case. Skipping the long task of doing my hair section by section, over and over, I am saving close to an HOUR! Case closed ladies. I just solved your morning (or dare I say nightly? No judgment here 😉 ) time problem and opened up an hour of your day with this one straightening brush. What more do you need in life, honestly?
Seriously, why are you still here, shouldn’t you be shopping for your new straightening brush?
Until next time…
