This new tool on the market caught my attention a few days ago. At first glance, it looks like a regular brush with a fancy shape and attractive colour but on closer inspection, you notice it also has a chord and is an electrical device. I went about researching for more information about it and found out it’s known as the Dafni Ceramic Hair Straightening Brush.
An engineer and his daughter, who is also an engineer, invented the brush. The brush operates by working it through batches of hair with the result being smooth straight hair in minutes.
Advantages of Dafni Ceramic Hair Straightening Brush
- It saves time.
- Doesn’t get hot enough to damage hair.
- Handy travel size.
- No danger of scalding your scalp like you can with a flat iron (or maybe that’s just me every time I try to flat iron my hair for a length check).
The videos on the website show only women with type 1 – 2 hair but a recent Facebook video shows a lady straightening her daughter’s type 4 hair. Below is her comment about the Dafni brush:
Sometimes things look so good you have to think, “That just can’t be!” And “It’s just too good to be true!” Like how I earn 6 figures as a stay at home mom. I just say, “Let’s just Try it & see”! I understand how it feels to be a total skeptic of something! So I’m going to try out the ‘Dafni Ceramic Straightening Brush’. DOES IT WORK?! You can see for yourself IF In Fact IT Works or not?! This takes the place of flat ironing and saves you MAJOR TIME! I am TOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!NOTE: I was so excited to use this i didn’t wash my daughters hair. She does have GEL in her hair i just ran it through really quick to test it. Imagine this on her CLEAN hair! WOW. I’m very happy with this product!

After watching both videos and studying the design of the brush, here are my initial thoughts on how it could work well for type 4 hair:
- The hair needs to be clean and have only minimal products in it.
- Hair should be almost dry and thoroughly detangled.
- The patience of Job will be required especially if you have thicker and longer hair.
In the Facebook video I watched, it looks more like a blowout rather than a smooth and silky straightening. Below is a side by side comparison of a light blow out I did at home before I installed my last braids and the results from the Facebook video above. They look similar. I believe in order to achieve a flat iron effect on type 4 hair; hair would have to be brushed in very small sections repeatedly.
This should be used off and on a few times a year. Frequent use on type 3 – type 4 hair may lead to split ends and dryer hair in the long term.
However, this is all conjecture at this point without having tested the brush yet. I’m currently on a waitlist for it at Dermstore where it retails for the pricey sum of $300. It was also retailing earlier on Ebay for the insane price of $780 and someone has since purchased it. You definitely can’t get in the way of a PJ and her hair products. Lol.
Will you be purchasing? Does it look like it’ll be a game changer for your hair or you’ll just be moseying on along like the PJ in you is nonexistent? 🙂
