The 10 Best Ionic Hair Brushes

This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in August of 2019. Hair needs a balance of positive and negative ions to fight frizz, but many factors — from the environment to hair care appliances — throw off this balance, and that's when you wind up with a mane that makes it look like you stuck your finger in a power outlet. Ionic brushes restore equilibrium to your locks by emitting negative ions, helping you regain control over wild strands. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 19, 2019:

Ionic hair brushes can do a lot more than simply manage frizz. Since many are also hot appliances, they can help with all sorts of styling tasks and we wanted our list to show that. The Revlon RV440C Kit, for example, is a hot tool with two round brush attachments and a concentrator, combining the power of heat with ionic technology to manage frizz and create beautiful curls of varying sizes. Meanwhile, the Head Kandy Straightening 2.0 and the InStyler Straight Up act as both a straightener and detangler, so you can use just one tool to tame your mane.

We included a couple of models that are not heat appliances, but are rather intended to be used with your blow dryer, so they can minimize the damage done by that tool. The Bio Ionic Bluewave and the Paul Mitchell Pro Tools Express are two such products.

Whether you go with one of our selections that doubles as a heat appliance or a standard brush, we looked for other features that will make styling easy and pain-free. The bristles of the Revlon One-Step have massaging tips for a really pleasant de-tanging experience and the Calista Tools Perfecter Pro Grip has robust teeth, so you shouldn't find it shedding over time.

Special Honors

The Amika iRed Polished Perfection This tool combines the powers of a flat iron with the ease of a hair brush, so you can both straighten and detangle locks at the same time. It has an ion-generating projector that sends negative ions into your strands while you use it, locking in moisture and helping you get a healthier mane. With cool-tip ceramic bristles and a swivel cord, it's comfortable and easy to use.

The Beauty Bliss Anti-Static It's compact size and battery-powered operation make this brush a great addition to your travel bag, especially since the many environments you encounter on adventures like airplane and bus seats can cause a lot of frizz. In addition to being lightweight, it also boasts comfortable round-tipped bristles and is available in three color options.
