4.0 out of 5 stars Nice brush if you believe the science, 28 Oct. 2013
By 
This review is from: Braun Satin Hair 7 BR170 Iontec Brush (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So, here's the thing. We got this Iontec brush on Saturday and have tested it out on my wife's hair and my daughter's hair.

The brush has a big on/off switch and an eerie green glow around it, but is otherwise like any other brush. Braun claim this 'Iontec' technology will make hair more manageable and noticeably better.

Both had just washed their hair the first time and both did look as if their hair was noticeably shinier after using the brush. When they tried it from dry the results were very hard to spot over a regular brush. I also tried it myself on dry hair.

But...the brush itself is pretty good and goes through hair a lot easier than some of the brushes I've used, so it does have that in its favour. There's also a little button which depresses the plastic part of the head so you can wash it.

Braun are not the only ones to use Ions to supposedly make hair look better. There are already plenty of hair dryers on the market that use the same feature. This is important in understanding how Ions could possibly work. The Ion would have an affect on the condition of the water, making drying better and less damaging for the hair.

There is some slightly science-based evidence that Ions can help hair by changing the strands from positive Ions to negative, as well. If your hair is made up of all positive Ion charges then theoretically, it should repel other strands. Brushing with an Iontech brush possibly could take those wayward strands and help stop them from flying away.

Whether this works in the case of the Braun brush or not, I don't know. It did help with shine and it was easy to comb through my daughter's normally knotty hair, so I'm quite pleased with the product.
