Dafni was created when its inventor, an electrical engineer, invented a hot brush in his basement for his daughter. She had received a bad hair cut but didn’t have time to straighten her hair everyday. The hot brush worked! After 2 more years of research and development, Dafni was perfected by the inventor and his daughter, who is also an engineer and physicist herself. We love products created out of necessity by parents and their children, and Dafni is a truly inspiring family story of ingenuity and success.
