When it comes to a mastering the fine art of a fuss-free hair routine, time is money — especially if you’re like me and are guilty as charged when it comes to a nasty habit of hitting the snooze button at least twice every morning when my alarm goes off. Fortunately, my latest beauty tool discovery has been a game-changer (and maybe even an enabler, when it comes to the whole over-sleeping thing). Hair straightening brushes are an awesome two-in-one tool that allow you to create a straight and sleek ‘do just as you would with an average ceramic flat iron, but these multi-functional brushes can actually shave off a substantial amount of time from the process of doing your hair. If that wasn’t convincing enough to consider making the switch, consider this: some models are a triple threat, functioning as a de-tangling comb, straightener, and hair dryer all in one easy-to-use tool. And, there’s more: these innovative double-duty brushes also tend to be far less damage-inducing to your strands and your scalp, preventing further breakage and split ends and minimizing the risk of burning your face or hand.
