Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you how I’ve been keeping my hair sleek and straight these past few weeks. My hair dries naturally frizzy, wavy, and unmanageable therefore straightening it is a must on most days. Now don’t get me wrong, I also embrace my hair just the way it is and often leave it au naturel. But for days where I’m after a polished finished look, I have been opting for my much loved heat styling tools. Enter Saint Algue: I’ve recently had the opportunity to try out some of their amazing range of products to help revive my hair. Today my ‘mane’ objective is to bring awareness to their fantastic hair tools and treatments.
About the brand: Established in 1977 Saint Algue salons look at life in a responsible way and care for the planet, naturally. They are committed to implementing and promoting a policy of sustainable development through concrete actions: saving water, waste recycling, low energy consumption, and more. Awarded Best French Salon in 2015 and is the official salon for Miss France 2017 & 2018.
I wash my hair no more than twice a week to get my locks to a healthier state. Then I prep it with a heat protectant product before picking up any of my hot hair styling tools. When using Saint Algue Demeliss Pro Hair Straightener Brush I spray Demeliss Spray Liss & Protect to enrich hydration, tame the frizz, protect hair from damage and smooth hair cuticles. I rely on Demeliss Keratin – Care, a nourishing cream to help repair and strengthen my tresses, keeping it frizz-free for days after using the Saint Algue Demeliss Steam. Lastly I finish off my hair with a bit of the Demeliss Serum, a smoothing leave-in treatment which transforms my hair to a soft, shiny finish.
Saint Algue Demeliss Pro Hair Straightener Brush
I’m not going to lie, I was a little skeptical about any hair straightening brush working on my thick unruly hair. I’m pleased to say that I’m blown away by the Saint Algue Demeliss Pro Hair Straightener Brush. It replaces your conventional brush and traditional heat styling tool, to straighten hair in the most healthy way thanks to its intuitive brushing movement and special Ionic function which regulates the hair staticity for a longer time. The bristles heat up in minutes, then glide smoothly through my hair working its way to a straight shiny style.
The innovative design features:
- LCD display that shows the temperature
- Temperature control system
- Ceramic technology maintains stable temperature
- Bristles are isolated from the heat, for safe use
- Chic ergonomic design allowing for comfortable handling
- Automatic turn-off system, 1 hour after last button is pressed
- Heats up to 180 °C within 60 seconds
- Heat resistant velvet storage bag
- 2 years guarantee
Tips: I suggest you section your hair before using any heat styling tool as it will save you time and give you a more polished look. Take a small section of hair and slide the brush gently and slowly combing from root to tip (You can also brush the strands of hair from the inside). Make sure you never keep the brush in the one same position for any more than 3 seconds.
Saint Algue Mini Pro
The Saint Algue Mini Pro has been my go-to travel buddy, I always pack it in my bag when I go on overnight trips. This pretty in pink 2 in 1 brush is uniquely designed to give you both smooth straight hair or soft wavy curls by simply twisting hair around the brush. It heats up quickly reaching up to 200°c, the cord swivels 360 degrees for easy use, it’s portable, ultra light and comfortable to hold. As the bristles gently massage the scalp, it quickly smoothes and tames unruly curls and fly-aways in just minutes, leaving hair looking silky smooth all day long. Suitable for all hair types and should only be used on dry hair. Extras include:
- 10ml bottle of Demeliss Spray Liss & Protect
- Heat resistant velvet pouch
Saint Algue Demeliss Steam
Roll up, roll up, all the curly haired ladies out there, this steam hair straightener is the crème de la crème made especially for you. Even though this straightener is suitable for people with all hair types, I feel those with hard-to-manage curly hair will be truly amazed! If you are new to steam hair straighteners, It looks like your standard flat iron except it has bristles attached to its plates. The Demeliss Steam straightener has a built in water tank which you can slide open and fill with filtered water. After filling the tank, plug it in and select your desired temperature. It reaches its maximum temperature of 230°C in 45 seconds then voilà you’re good to go. How to use: Clamp a section of hair between the plates of the flat iron, if the steam function is activated, the nozzles will automatically release steam for a period of 7 seconds. Gently brush from the roots to the ends while keeping a firm grip on the hair and holding the steam nozzles downward. Special Extras:
- Energy saving feature shuts off automatically one hour after last use.
- Comes with a small plastic bottle
- Sample sachets Keratin 10ml/ Serum 5ml
- Heat resistant velvet storage bag
- 2 years guarantee

I don’t straighten my hair but these brushes look like they’d be more gentle than flat irons.
These brushes look great! Plus there are soooo many pretty colours to choose from!
Im so keen to try out a straightening brush! They look so easy!!
Ooo I love the one with the tongs! That looks like it would be perfect for easy styling!
I have the opposite problem- fine hair that I want to be unruly haha! These devices sound great though 🙂

I’d love to try the straightener brush it looks just right for my hair 😊
Ooo this range looks great, especially the steam hair straightener! My hair is naturally quite straight but I love my trusty GHD to get it super straight 🙂
I don’t need too straighten my hair but I am in the market for something like this for smoothing.
I think I’d prefer that style of flat iron brush than the usual hair straightening brushes, love the design!!
My hair is pretty manageable so I don’t need to style it much (only when I want to curl it), but I can imagine a straightening brush to be so good for quickly and easily taming frizz and making everything smoother!

I am so much into straightening brushes, they are so easy to use and work so well. These sound so good and I like the packaging too.
I want to try! One of my new years resolutions is to make more of an effort with my hair for work, I think one of these brushes will be the way to go!
Best I have ever used is the Karmin.
