I was planning to get this for my daughter until I watched the video presentation. The vendor uses the brush on an older woman with gray hair, but you can clearly see that one of the "bristles", or "nubs", on the brush is clearly missing. I thought maybe this was normal till viewing the pictures of the brush, but all the others seemed to have that dead center bristle in place. Now I’m afraid to purchase it, thinking that it must be fairly easy for them to fall off the brush. Did anyone else notice this, or own the brush who can comment on this ?
I received mine last week and am amazingly pleased. I read the reviews before purchasing and saw some not so complimentary reviews but pursued as I could always send back. I do not see any more hairs in the brush than I do with my regular brushes/combs after normal blowdrying or hot iron. The literature states not to use with styling products. Even though someone blogged the manufacturer stated a little is ok, I am afraid to try but do believe the heat with brushing is a risky combination for damage. So far, I do my brusing, flip my head down, repeat, and when dry apply argan oil and so far am quite pleased. still need to use flat iron on the bangs as they are shorter.
I had to send mine back because I think something was wrong with the chord as the heat would stop and then go back on and it was inconsistent so I couldn’t figure out what caused it. Also, somehow the brush had quite a bit of hair in it after using, so it was either snagging or breaking my hair. It also did not deliver any volume as stated in the presentation. I think this device is probably best for strong, thick, curly hair, or ethnic hair.
I don’t own this particular brand, but want to share with you something my hair stylist pointed out. Let me preface this with the fact that I dye, highlight, blow dry, curl, or straighten my hair. Pretty much put it through a lot of abuse. Using any type of heat appliance will cause damage. She said every time we brush our hair, we cause breakage and adding heat while we brush weakens the hair shaft making it more prone to breakage. Granted, the directions state to comb hair so it’s free of tangles, but the additional friction of the bristles might cause breakage. Just something to think about.
