If you’re obsessed with having flicky, blown out hair, then you’ve probably already heard of the hot air brush, a wet-to-dry invention designed to help you get a salon blow out at home.

These hot brushes have gone viral on the internet and for good reason – they’re reasonably inexpensive, they help to cut down styling time and they create a brilliant end result.

However, owners of said hot brushes will tell you that sometimes you don’t want to be blowing your hair wet-to-dry. What do you do if you’ve air dried and then want to style it?

Enter the thermal or infrared hot brush, a heated brush implement used to style dry hair.

Why would you purchase one of these? Well they don’t use any hot air, so they’re extremely quiet, which is a big win for those who find the loud noise of a blow out brush frustrating.

Secondly, they’re really great for styling your hair on any day, not just wash day, meaning you’ll be reaching for it more often.

Thirdly, it’s a brilliant way to touch up for those who have face framing pieces or bangs.

So, without further ado, here are the heated brushes you need to try, stat.

This brush is such a brilliant addition to your bathroom vanity. It has a temperature gauge allowing you to customise the heat to your hair type, and also heats up so quickly. The tool has great hold on the hair as you twist it through but it doesn’t pull out the hair at all.

This brush is designed to reduce heat damage, using the revolutionary power of infrared technology, to evenly shape the hair.
