I’ve recently heard about this new thing called a vibrating hair straightener. What’s the difference between it and a regular flat iron? Is it a brand new straightening tool or just an advanced version of the flat iron which we’re accustomed to?
I believe that a vibrating flat iron is a certain kind of a straightening tool. But it’s basically a hair straightener that vibrates when applied on hair, and its other features are quite similar to those of the regular flat iron. I bet you’re curious why this appliance vibrates, so let me explain this to you.

Manufacturers claim that a vibrating hair straightener iron is a must-have device for women with kinky and very frizzy locks. The main reason of frizziness is open hair cuticles which give hair unwanted volume. The iron vibration helps to close hair cuticles and visibly reduce frizziness. This device makes hair especially shiny and straight due to the vibration. Only one pass will probably be enough to make one strand totally straight when a regular flat iron requires 2-3 passes to do the same.
This flat iron starts to vibrate when its heated plates are pressed together. You could hear a quiet buzz which sounds a lot like an electric toothbrush. It’s quite a weird sensation at first as you could feel the vibration on your hair, but you soon get used to it.
You can turn the vibration off if you don’t need this option, but I believe that it’s a very useful feature. It saves your curls from applying extra heat on them because you need to glide through each section only once.
But don’t forget to put a thermal protectant before straightening anyway as high temperatures could easily damage your hair.
Also, this device saves your time and energy for the same reason – you only need to apply it once on each strand.
