I hate frizz and my natural hair harbors a lot of it. Recently Moroccan oil has saved me but I've wanted a Round Bristle brush for absolutely ages now, I just haven't bit the bullet and coughed up the cash. A lot of the time they're quite pricey which has put me off, however when I was offered an item from the GHD hair care range I jumped at the chance of trying this out.
It arrived a few days later, VERY well packaged and the first thing I thought was "WOW that's huge". The Size 4 brush is a 55mm barrel. This size is good for those with long hair (like me) but they have a lot of other sizes. It took some time for me to get used to using this, it can get fiddly. What I do is apply some mousse, styling spray, styling mist and some Moroccan oil to my hair (if you want more detail on my products just ask! I'll probably do a post on it soon). Then I blast my hair with the hairdryer until it's about 50% dry. Then I take small sections and use the brush to smooth the hair while drying.
Here's a picture of one side dryed with the brush and the other without:
I think you can guess which side is which? My hair is so smooth and soft feeling. It gives a really nice bounce too. I much prefer blow-dry styling my hair rather than straightening now.
My only downside to the brush is that it's pricey. £20 for a brush is steep but I love it. It feels amazing quality, looks great on the dressing table and will last a long time so I'd say it's worth it! I have my eye on the Root Lift Spray from GHD too as it looks very good!
I decided to do it quite lightly so that my hair had a natural wave throughout and I love the look. Next time I might try to blowdry it straight and see if I can be motivated enough to follow it through!
What do you think of this brush? Are you interested in buying?
