One of the main things I struggle with is getting any kind of volume in my hair. I’m pretty uncoordinated so if I’ve never been able to get the hang of blow drying my hair, and can guarantee that if I do attempt it I will hit myself in the head/face with either the hairbrush or dryer at least once!
I’ve been wanting something like this for a while now, and originally went into Boots to get the BaByliss Big Hair, however I saw that this was down from £59.99 to £28.99. I took a bit of a risk getting this as I’d not heard of this before and couldn’t find any reviews either. It would either turn out to be a huge bargain or big waste of money.
The box contains a large barrel brush, as well as two curling wands with the option to use them with or without the clips.
I will definitely be reviewing the curling wands at a later date, but my focus for this review is the brush.
On the front of the box is a QR code that brings up a youtube tutorial when you scan it, which I love.
The styler works as a hair dryer, so the brush has holes/vents to direct the air flow. This way it blow dries your hair without all the faffing around. I dried my hair in layers working from bottom to top and, as you can see, the small section of hair I have done has already gained some much needed lift. Naturally the hair at my roots falls flat against my head, so it’s great to see a bit of volume there for once!
This is the final result, and it is a vast improvement from how it usually is – I don’t have to worry about straightening it after either.
I have to be honest and say that I didn’t expect a lot from this, however I’m really pleased with the outcome and am glad to say this turned out to be a bargain! Before I dried my hair I used volumising mousse, however I didn’t apply it to my roots so I’m sure I will get so much more lift if I apply it there next time.
One thing I will warn you though is, if you have long hair, you will need to keep pay attention when you use this as it’s so easy to catch your hair in the air vent and rip out a load like I did towards the end.
I’m really glad I got this, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the curling wands work out compared to normal wands.
