Heated paddle brushes have changed my beauty routine for good and this Amika one reigns supreme. You can crank it to 450 degrees, however I find I get silky, smooth results with way less scorch keeping it around 380 degrees. It's designed with negative ion technology which helps create that shiny, frizz free finish with zero static-- a problem I have experienced with most other heated brushes. The ceramic bristles gently comb through my waves and smooth them in the process leaving the shiniest, glossiest finish and softest texture. It also takes about 3 minutes total to smooth my entire head of long hair, and for that reason alone I am forever grateful.
