**Video Post**  Ohhh the natural hair community is all a buzz about the new Dafni straightening brush!

I am always looking for ways to improve my straight life.  Even though I don’t straighten as often as I used to, I do like to rock straight styles a few times throughout the year to check length and pretty much whenever I feel like trimming.  So the question is…Does the Dafni work on Natural Hair?

Well, a FB friend of mine tagged me in a post from FB user Kimberley Satterwhite, Friday night and I’m sharing it with you right here. Take a look for yourself and tell me what you think!  

Be honest, what do you think of the results?

Given the texture of the young lady’s hair that it was demonstrated on, do you think this will work for your texture?

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 daughter’s 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!

    1. I’ve seen that one but I’m very skeptical about its performance. It looks like a lot of the reviews on that brand’s website are either bought or fake. They all have the same entry date of October 3rd, 2018 and it’s like nobody has a differing opinion about the product?? When I see stuff like that it really raises red flags for me.

  1. I got one last night as an early Christmas pressie from my family LOVE IT!! I have very thick naturally wavy hair which usually takes forever to hot tong straight. 5 mins brushing and done 🙂

  2. I have wavy hair, have tried product he but curious of those who have in a high humidity inviroment.mas with all straightening devices, creams, sprays etc… I am left with a nice finish but after an hour or two it’s frizzy and matted looking, not sleep as the pics, videos show. Anyone who can testify to the longetivity of styling in a tropical environment like Queensland Australia would be appreciated

  3. My daughter and I like it, wouldn’t say love it, $300 worth hmmm hard to say. If you want a polished, really straight hair look this is not for you. But I wanted a less scarecrow straight look and it does do that. Hard to get the ends and fringe right as you have to get the hair well into the brush. I also kept hitting myself in the head at first but got used to the weight of it now. I have ordered a heat proof glove as the hair gets quite hot and you do need to hold it to keep it tense against the brush. My hair is lightened with a strong wave so I am happy I bought it for days when I don’t have time to wash it and I can brush my hair straight and smooth so not having to wear it up so much.

  4. I got my hands on one of these recently and I have to say I am not 100% impressed. I have quite curly hair and initially it straightens it out quite quickly but it does make it quite frizzy and wispy. I have to use a GHD to flatten out the ends and the roots. I think it would work much better on someone who has slightly wavy hair. However, those who have very curly hair like myself, I would not bother. It may take slightly less time to straighten out your hair than a traditional straightening iron because it has a higher surface area… But if you want straight hair that will last you need to use a straightening iron, which negates it. $300… Not worth it!!!!!

    1. Well well miss Patricia, tell us how you really feel! 😀 That’s some good information. I would love to see your actual texture. Wow so it doesn’t straighten your roots either? That’s disappointing.

  5. I really wanted to try this! $300 is a lot of money, but it does come with a warranty/return policy. My only real concerns were I know two people who tried this (only one w/ curly hair). One person said that it stopped working after 2 months and it took a while to get her money back and the other said her hair caught on fire! That was a big red flag for me.

    The dupe that you posted was waaaay better priced, but I wouldn’t want anything that hot on my hair. Do you know of one with a lower temperature, closer to the original?

    1. Hi Alyvsa,

      Thanks for that info. Wow!! I don’t want anybody’s hair catching on fire…geesh!! I don’t know what to say about that. That’s crazy. The only other brush I could find that has an actual temperature setting is this: It’s still a little pricey but it is a paddle brush. I don’t see a lot of reviews about it but check it out and tell me what you think.

      My hair is used to a lot of heat but I TOTALLY understand wanting a temperature dial or at least a high/low setting. There are plenty of electric round brushes and hot air brushes out there but I’m not sure how you would feel about those as an option.

  6. Thanks so much for posting this! I have been wanting to try one and wondering if it really worked. My only concern is that I like my hair a little more silky when I do straighten it so I’m not sure if this would really be an alternative to a flat iron judging by the results on the video.

    Best Wishes,
    Allison Jones

    1. Alison,

      Heeeyyyy #BLMGirl That’s my thought exactly. I like a smooth press so I can’t wait to try this. If I can eliminate having to use a flat iron and can cut my straightening time at least by half, I’ll be sold. Stay tuned, I’m hoping to do a review of this soon as we get closer to Christmas. Thanks for stopping by 😉

  7. I’d love to see this on super coarse hair too! I bet it would work greats on Mo’s hair. Price point is a bit high too but if it’s got a great warranty then I’m sure it’s worth it.

  8. *throws money at screen*
    I have a friend ready to purchase one from Israel for me – but I’d love to see how it works on coily/curly/kinky textures such as mine. I hope Sharon sends you one to review!

    1. LOL at *throws money at screen* 😀 I would love to review this! My thoughts exactly. I have really thick kinky/curly hair and would love to know how it performs on my hair type. P.S. I attend beauty events a LOT and this is gonna make a great conversation piece for beauty bloggers/beauty retailers/stylists.

  9. Hi ladies, I am Sharon Rabi, 28, mom of two, co-founder and inventor of DAFNI (I am the girl in the video with the 66 million views :)). I thank you for trying DAFNI and hope you will enjoy our top quality every day. I welcome you to our website to learn more. Kind regards, Sharon

    1. Thanks for stopping by to check out my post Sharon! I visited your site to check out the FAQ section, to learn more about the DAFNI. This looks great and I’m so curious to see how it would perform on my specific hair texture. I’m looking forward to seeing more reviews & videos from beauty bloggers/vloggers of all hair types/textures.

    2. Sharon Rabi, congratulations on inventing the DAFNI! The price is a bit over the edge, which makes it unaffordable to many people. Is there a guarantee to customer satisfaction since this straightening brush is 300$?

      1. Great question Beth! I’m sure a lot of people are feeling the same way. $300 is a lot for a beauty tool. Most beauty items at that price point do offer guarantees of some sort. Hopefully we’ll get a response on that one.

        1. Hi Candice! I’m from Australia and we only just received the Dafni this week! As a ShaverShop exclusive it’s a little hard to obtain but definitely worth the price! I’ve tried it on my own (reasonably long, thick, unruly) hair and its amazing! If there’s any Australians on here I definitely recommend dropping into ShaverShop to give their demos a try. They do offer a 12 month warranty on the brush (at least in Australia) but I haven’t heard any negatives about it yet. You mentioned wanting to silky smooth straighten earlier and the brush style of the Dafni really helps in reducing frizz and its sooo much quicker than straightening. I’m just waiting till we get more in stock here as they’re selling unbelievably fast! 10/10 would recommend!

          1. Hey thanks for the feedback! That’s really helpful. I’m glad that the brush has worked for you and I’m sure your input will really help my readers that drop by from Australia.

    3. Hi! I got a Dafni brush from Israel. I live in America. On the box it says it’s 120v which means a simple converter for the plug is sufficient . On the brush it says 220-240 which means I need an adapter to change it from 220 to 110 to use it in the states. Can you tell me what to use please. Thank you!
