$16.98
Barrel Size: 2.5 "

WHAT BRUSH LOVE SAYS:

The most popular round hair brush today is the round thermal hair brush, as it speeds the drying process considerably. This brush is designed for people who are looking to add volume, curl, or straighten.

Features & Benefits :

• 100% Natural premium cut boar bristles. Boar bristle hair brushes have a little more flexibility than nylon bristle hair brushes.

• Thermal ceramic coated barrel. Helps evenly distribute the heat to prevent over drying & damage.

• Maximum control = maximum results. Our signature comfort cozi™ grip is designed to massage and prevent slip ups.

• Gorgeous finishing of the ends. Boar bristles help to restore your natural shine.

• Faster blow dry.

Let me start by saying, I DO like the outcome, it added shine and volume to my hair.
Also it leaves my hair feeling smooth. 
Boar bristle brushes are very safe for fine hair, less breakage!!

Until now, I had never tried a boar bristle round brush to dry my hair with. 

The only downside is, it took a lot longer for my hair to dry.
Now, it supposedly helps to dry your hair faster.
For time's sake, I think it would work in favor if I had let me hair air-dried for a while
OR
If I blew it dry quickly by using my fingers... 
Then once it's DAMP I could start styling with this brush.

That definitely might work better for me.

Any suggestions from you girls???


I like the grip because, unfortunately at times, your hands tend to sweat during hair drying.
Near the end of my drying session, my hand did feel a little tingly from the plastic prickles; felt a little tickled :)

This iron, 1.5 inched-barrel, is suitable for longer hair.
My hair is about medium-to-long, and I can get some pretty nice curl-action goin' on!

The first time I ever curled with this iron, I kept asking myself "why does my hair keep going limp?" It wasn't holding any curl! I was so frustrated. The second time around, I decided to take SMALLER sections of hair- patience my dear... patience....
I was shocked to see the big beautiful curls that lasted the majority of the day!
So one Whitz Wordz of Wizdom points to this:
stay patient and ALWAYS take smaller sections of hair, while using a larger-barreled curling iron.




Here are some photos after I used the Hot Tools curling iron.

As you can see, the curls aren't very "curly," they are loose and more wavy.


I actually really like the long, loose curls that I get with this curling iron.
I think they are pretty, modern yet still classic.
