Browsing All Comments By: Monica Davis
  1. It’s a pleasure, thank you!

  2. Hi Alison. Thank you for your feedback. I’ve been asked this question before, and I can say for sure that the BaByliss hot air brush is perfect for short hair. Believe me, you will be delighted with this tool. It may be pricey, true. But you will love freshening up your short hair with this baby on a daily basis. It does a great job styling your hair without damaging the heck out of it.

  3. Hi Tina. The Glamfields hair straightener brush is perfect for long thick hair. By using this tool, you can make your strands straight, smooth, and shiny in less than 10 minutes. In many ways, it’s much better (and more time-saving) than a flat iron. Be sure that after purchasing this baby you will no longer have bad hair days in your life.

  4. Pleased to meet you, Mary!

    The main characteristic you have to consider is the dual voltage of your hot air brush. The other ones, including size, weight, function set and materials are optional and depend on your preferred kind of styling and your type of hair.

    As you can see, this topic was opened 2 years ago. Since then, many American brushes had burned in Europe, which is bad news. Good news is, based on their users’ negative experience, more and more hair tools manufacturers started to make amazing dual-voltage products and not just some supplementary travel accessories.

    Among the most convenient dual voltage newcomers, there’s a Phoebe Curling Iron Brush which is lightweight, material-wise and safe to use on all hair types. You’ll find a detailed review of it in this article.

    One more great device that’s safe to use across the ocean is Sultra Vixen brush. It works best on thick and long hair, while Phoebe Curling will be more suitable for shorter hairstyles and volume-boosting.

    If you want my advice to be more particular, you’re welcome to share some more information on your hair characteristics and the stylings you do.

  5. I totally agree on that one!

    If you’re a true fashionista, changing clothes by season is not enough. You have to experiment with all the aspects of your look and welcome never-ceasing transformations, just like Bille Eilish or Rihanna do. And have you seen all those flawless K-pop stars with their hairstyles in multicolored layers?! Hair extensions are the best option for changing one’s hairstyle radically without damaging it.

    Still, there is an opposite tendency: for many people with fine hair or hair that doesn’t grow easily, extra locks provide the natural look they crave. From their point of view, they look more themselves with additional locks (especially when they’re natural ones and of the best quality) than with their short practical hairstyles.

    There’s a third option, however. You can browse the above comments and see for yourself how many women and young girls choose to wear their hair short in everyday life and turn into a glamorous long-haired diva for special events.

  6. Hey, Tara, nice to meet you!

    Don’t be confused by your hair condition, as the symptoms you mentioned in the comment are familiar to pretty much any girl or woman that cares about her hair. Am I right, ladies? 😉

    Let me give you a few tips:

    To keep your ends from drying and splitting, use a hair mask 1 to 3 times a week for at least 5 minutes. You can also put some oil on the ends before styling your locks. Don’t let your hair greasiness fool you: it still needs a lot of nourishment. Just make sure you use such nutrient products on your ends only and combine them with a basic oily scalp shampoo, like Aveda Scalp Benefits. If the dry-ends situation is truly disastrous, I’d advise you to cut off a few inches — such a recipe is more effective than any mask.

    It would also be great if you could go gentle on your hair and take occasional days off from iron straightening it. Embrace your natural curliness, and your hair will thank you for that. I have a comprehensive selection on the matter here somewhere… yep, right here!

    You must know that there’s nothing wrong with washing your hair every single day if you provide whole-based care for it. However, if washing and styling your mane every day is too much for you, dry shampoo is a solution: in the article, I’ve mentioned Hair Dance and Klorane products ‘cause they’re my favorites, but you’re free to try out more.

    If none of the above advice help, consider consulting your family doctor as excessive oiliness could very well be a medical condition.

  7. Hello, Brenda! Sorry to hear about your bad experience.

    I’ve never contacted TYME customer service myself as my stylist friend’s and my own TYME tools have been working perfectly for more than a year already. Have you tried all the ways of contacting them? Their Facebook community is pretty active, and TYME official website says many good things about their customer service. Try to contact them directly: even if it’s too late to return the tool, they may share some advice on how to use it.

    As for the iron itself, let’s be clear about it:
    1. For how long have you been using ANY pro stylist tools?
    The thing about TYME iron is that its titanium surface requires quick and savvy action, and a newbie stylist could be overwhelmed by handling it. I suggest you consider ceramic surfaces for practicing and returning to your TYME tool a bit later.

    2. What is your hair type?
    This is the basic question in hairstyling. Reread this article and the instruction for your device to make sure you choose the right setting for your hair.

    3. Did you use this iron for straightening or curling?
    Hair straightening is much easier with TYME, while styling may need a few weeks of thorough training. If you got to styling right after unpacking the tool, the answer to your poor experience may be the haste. Watch some tutorials, consult some pros, maybe browse this website a bit 🙂 and you’ll manage to make perfect TYME styling in no time.

    If my tips aren’t enough, address the TYME website: they offer real-time online StyleTYME sessions where you can consult a professional stylist on all the functions and pro hacks for working with the tool.

  8. Hello there. Thank you for your feedback. Knowing that my posts are helpful is really important to me. I’m glad that we’re on the same page about hair brush straighteners haha! I personally love the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer. It’s great for stubbornly curly hair. It works unbelievably easy and fast. So I recommend that you purchase this baby if you have super thick, curly/wavy, and frizzy hair.

  9. Hi Rochelle. Thank you for your feedback. If you’re looking for a fragrance-free hair straightening gel, JASON Flaxseed Hi-Shine Styling Gel is what I’d recommend you to opt for. There’s a hint of a natural fragrance that fades within moments. The hold is excellent, and the shine will definitely tickle your fancy. Overall, it’s a great product. Highly recommended.

  10. Hi Cecilia. Thanks for your question, I appreciate your feedback greatly. Revlon is nice, but it’s, indeed, a you-get-what-you-pay-for kind of product. The BaByliss Pro ceramic flat iron is A LOT better. It’s a salon-quality flat iron that makes your hair super soft and silky. So if you’re considering buying this baby and using it instead of your Revlon, I’d say you’re about to make the right decision!

  11. Hi Mimi. Thank you for your question, I greatly appreciate it. Indeed, Revlon and John Feida are both great for thick hair. I’ve had the chance to test-drive both these hot air brushes. If I were you, I’d go with Revlon. The tool is perfect for thick hair. It works great on my daughter’s hair which is very thick and curly. It functions excellent as a straightener. It styles thick hair and defrizzes it with ease.

  12. Hi Megan. That’s a good question. Thank you for it — and thank you for reading my post. I appreciate it very much. Yes, the BaByliss titanium pro flat iron is small-sized, you are right. But if you use it correctly i.e. grab the right amount of strands, it will work great on any type of hair. In addition to this, it heats up really quickly and leaves your tresses perfectly shiny. In short, it’s a little champion and miracle worker. So leave all your doubts behind if you’re planning to buy this one.

  13. Hi Stephanie. You’ve probably read a lot of reviews if you’re asking me about this particular product. The thing is, Suave Professionals Anti-Frizz Cream is great for long and thick hair. As a matter of fact, it makes blow drying sleazy and super fast. And it doesn’t grease up your scalp! A lot of stylists recommend this wonderful hair straightener cream, and I’m not an exception. It’s a game-changer for your hair type. And it’s affordable, too. Highly recommended.

  14. I’m glad I could help 🙂

  15. I’m glad to hear that you liked this article.
    Yes, this one will be great for the first time.

  16. Nice to hear it, thanks.

  17. Thanks for the response.

    Yes, it’s true. Wireless irons are really comfortable.

  18. Hello!
    Elizabeth, thanks a lot for your question. It’ll be a good remark for all girls here.

    If you like your Tek brush and everything with your hair is going fine – you don’t need another one brush.
    Remember that you need to change the brush or some hair care products on another only if there are some problems with them.
    I’ve once had this Tek brush and it was pretty good.

    And you can always try Boar Bristle Brush on the next time you’ll decide to buy a wooden brush 🙂

  19. I have a few really good moisturizers on my list for such cases. But one of them is my favorite – Moroccanoil Smoothing Lotion I always have it on a shelf at home and in a travel bag when I go somewhere.
    Try this lotion and let me know about the result.

  20. Hello! Yeah, it’s okay to straighten your hair two or three days after bleaching. Just be careful and use a thermal protection spray or argan oil on hair before straightening.

  21. Hey, Lorraine, thank you for your feedback. I hope you’ll enjoy your purchase.

  22. Thank you!

  23. Thank you, Melissa!

  24. Hi, Rebecca.
    Heat brush is good choice.

  25. Hi, Blue Rose.

    Wireless ones are really good, especially while traveling.

  26. Thank you, Tamara!

  27. Hi, Kavita!

    Thank you for your question. I’d recommend you to try DAFNI go.

    Best regards,

  28. Thank you for your opinion, Bridget!

  29. Hi, Erica.
    Thank you for your feedback. Can you say what do you want me to change?

  30. Hi, Victoria 🙂

    No, I’m from Dallas, Texas. But it’s nice to meet you. Ask me anything you need to know about hair dryers or any other hair styling tools 😉

  31. Hi, Jexie! Thank you for your question.

    In terms of straightening, they are the same. But I think a bigger one would be better for thick hair!

    Best regards,


  32. Thank you!

  33. Hello! I feel so sorry that you had an experience like this.
    If you don’t feel like going to a salon is a good idea, you can still manage this at home. First of all, consider the natural color of your hair. For light hair, I recommend using a silver shampoo. It reduces yellowness and orange tones from hair. If your natural hair is dark, then try to cover the orange with a beautiful dark shade that will suit you. Don’t give up! I believe you can handle this!

  34. Hello! Thanks for your question!
    Wooden hairbrushes are, in fact, a real treasure for our hair. To choose the right one, you have to consider the thickness and length of your hair. My favorites on the list are Redecker Maple Pin Oval Wooden Hairbrush and SHARCA Premium Wooden Bamboo Hair Brush. Try one of these brushes and let me know if you’re satisfied!

  35. Hey! Thanks for asking me!
    In your case, I’d suggest taking a look at Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush.
    To get more advice and info about brush dryers, I recommend you to check our guide on the best brush hairdryers.
    Hope this information will help you!

  36. Hi, Mili Sharma.

    Which one did you buy?
    And what type of hair do you have?

    Best regards,

  37. Hi, Felicia! Yes, it works for thick hair. But just FYI, you’ll need time to learn how to use TYME. This flat iron is designed for professionals.
    My usual recommendation for thick hair is Remington S-5500. But you can also check my other flat irons reviews here:

    I usually mark in CONS which are the best for thick hair.

    Best regards,

  38. Hi, Noel!

    PHOEBE Curling Iron Brush has dual voltage.

    Best regards,

  39. Because cats are cute 🙂

    If we are not talking about that upcoming movie, of course 😀

  40. Hi, Lion!
    If it’s ok, please, share your feedback on Amovee Mini beard straightener, I’m really curious will it meet your expectations or not.
    Also it’s better to thank your barber anyway 🙂

  41. Thank you for sharing your experience, JD!

  42. Hi, Belinda! Thank you for sharing your experience.
    Did you try Clairol shampoo and conditioner?
    I’m afraid, a reaction on products can differ depending on hair type. You can also consult your hair styler for more information.

  43. Jackie, thank you for sharing your experience.
    Now I’m considering to look for a guest writer, who might cover makeup and nail services chairs!
    Thank you for the new ideas for my content!

  44. – apply a small amount of hand or body crème on your hair, they won’t be so static
    – check your clothes, static can be caused by synthetic
    – dry hair before straightening
    – if you use plastic comb it also may cause static in your hair, here my recommendations on choosing wooden hairbrush, it’s also ecofriendly
    – use ionic hairdryer

    I guess it’s all pieces of advice that I can give you remotely. Hope I was helpful, good luck!

  45. Hi, Tom! Thank you for your feedback. I use this one in my salon. Also, I bought one for my daughter, she uses it at home and very happy with it. Especially when her mom comes and does her hair for free 😀

  46. You’re welcome.
    Thank you for your feedback.

  47. Helen, thank for your feedback. I’ve described a few good lightweight dryers in this article. I hope it will be useful for you!

  48. Thank you, Barbara! I’m glad that you are satisfied with your choice.

  49. Clarissa is my team’s new full-time writer. So you will see more of her articles in the future. She has already covered blue shampoos theme.

  51. Thank you for your feedback, Mia!

  52. Hi, Jenna!
    Amazon delivers everywhere these days. If you need any extra consultation on hair extensions, just contact me and my team.

  53. Hi, Drawyne!

    18 years old sister with thick wavy hair, how lovely!
    I want to be sure of what kind of safety we are talking here about. Safe for hair? Or are you afraid that a brush might be too hot?
    The brush surface can be ceramic or tourmaline, these materials are both safe.
    Head Kandy is a good choice for thick hair.
    Dafni is one of the safest for the hair.
    So I’d recommend you to check them out.
    I hope your sister will like your present.

  54. Elizabeth, thank you for sharing your experience!
    It really doesn’t rotate. But even though it works perfectly on my hair (makes it really soft), of course, it doesn’t mean it will be 100% for everyone else.

    But I’m so happy that you’ve liked Babyliss! Did you use BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium? It’s a really good one.

  55. Aw, Stephanie, I’m so glad that my reviews are useful for you.
    Clarissa is an expert in grey hair products and will share more of her wisdom on my blog. Stay tuned.

  56. My pleasure, Alice 🙂

  57. Thank you for your comment!
    CHI flat irons were described in this article.

  58. Unfortunately, there’s no auto-lock function to fix the temperature in this brush. If you experience any technical issues with the brush, you probably should contact the seller’s customer support or ob official brand’s site:

  59. Thank you for your professional feedback, Sasha!

  60. Thank you for your feedback!
    Remington hot rollers are really good ones.

  61. Hello, Kavita! Thank you for your comment.

    Both, Revlon and Babyliss, are great brushes. According to your description, they should fit your hair. I personally prefer Revlon, it’s a top seller with a lot of good reviews and I personally own one. I really love design.
    But my best friend and fellow colleague use Babyliss, and I’ve seen what kind of magic she had made with it.

    So it’s up to your own preferences, both brushes are pretty good.

  62. Hi, Anie! Thank you for your question.

    Travel Brush Hot Folding Portable Dual Voltage has ionic technology!
    It’s a good one if you need it for a vacation.
    Hope my answer was helpful.

  63. Dani, thank you for your recommendation! Their amazon store looks really nice. I might try some of their products and review them.

  64. I didn’t know about this brand. Thank you for mentioning, I will check it up.

  65. Hi, Kirk!
    Are you talking about this one?
    Should I buy and review Karmin G3 curling iron? What are pros and cons in your opinion?

  66. Hi, Echo!

    Do you want me to make a review on this brush? If you want me to write about it, please contact me [email protected]

  67. Hi, Rea Epstein!
    Thank you for your comment!
    You can find lighter hot air brushes in my best hot air brushes review. If you like Revlon brand, Revlon Hot Air Brush for Styling & Frizz Control is smaller and lighter than One Step. If you want to change brand Phoebe is a good choice, it’s lighter than both Revlon brushes ( Phoebe’s brush is just one pound).
    I hope it was helpful!
    Have a nice day.

  68. Hi, Funny Dee!
    Thank you for your question!
    I’d recommend Maple Holistics Clarifying Shampoo for Color Treated Hair, you can read a review on it in this post.

  69. Hello, Emma. I think you should check out amazon reviews on sulfate-free shampoo for children.

  70. Sully, you are so sweet!

  71. Thank you T.Dawson for your comment!

  72. Oksana, nice to meet you!
    I think John Frieda Hair Dryer Brush might be the best choice for you. The price is good and it allows getting maximum volume for your hair.

  73. Thank you, Mia.
    I and my girls are not exactly beauty bloggers, we prefer to call ourselves professional hairstylists. We don’t cover themes on makeup or skin care. But maybe someday we’ll do, who knows.

    Try Aveda Color Conserve Shampoo with Lavender and Peppermint.

    Oh, cosplay, that sounds like a lot of fun. Characters hairstyles can be crazy in cosplays, can’t they?

  74. Hi, Liz.
    The Natural Solution Silk18 Shampoo and Conditioner for dry hair by Maple Holistics is the best choice! These products are a great help for itchy scalp.
    I’m sorry that you had unsuccessful hair dye. My colleague Olivia covered how to fix orange hair theme in a post. You might find some useful tips there.

  75. Thank you, Daisy! RICHEN DeWEISN Tri-Fold Vanity mirror is a good choice.

  76. Katie, thank you for your feedback. My most popular post is about best hair straightening brush, and I was hesitating to make articles on something different from hair care products. But now with your comment, I see that I can keep writing about cosmetic mirrors and best rated lighted makeup mirrors with my team of writers.
    Thank you!

  77. Hello, Florence! Thank you for your question.

    In my guide on best travel size hair products I’ve wrote about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Mini Straightening Iron. It fits for thick hair.
    My other recommendation will be Cordless Mini Travel Flat Iron by DEOGRATIAS. Its price a bit higher, but I use this one personally. It’s very convenient!

    I hope it was helpful!

  78. Hi Julie,

    Thank you for reading my blog, I appreciate it greatly.

    In your case, I would opt for Xtava: Best Hair Straightener for Thick Long Hair. It was especially designed for thick long hair and it warms up really quickly. It will make your hair soft and straight without damaging or drying it out. Its plate is unusually wide. They made this trick up to reduce your straightening time to 5-7 minutes. Oh, and chances are high that if you use it today and sleep on it at night, your hair will still look great tomorrow. Make sure you use your straightener when your hair is completely dry. And don’t forget about the key secret for styling long thick hair: thicker hair, hotter straightener.

    Also, for your long and thick hair I recommend using John Frieda Hair Dryer Brush. It won’t damage your hair. I’ve heard women say that after using this hot air brush their hair looked better than when they had gotten it done at the hair salon.

    Also, if I were you, I would consider Suave Professionals Anti Frizz Cream to support your specific hair needs and as an addition to your hair straightening ritual. This cream will smooth your hair beautifully without heaving it down. You can use it as a finishing touch of your hair styling routine.

    Hope this helps. Long thick hair is always beautiful, so take a good care of this gem of yours!


  79. It’s a good choice!

  80. Ahahaha, thank you for sharing your story about your husband and son, Sarah. It’s a strange way to use Babyliss hair dryer, to be honest.

  81. Hello, Sophie!
    Thank you for your question.
    If I am not wrong, Glastonbury should have recharge tents, where you can charge your power bank or phone. So if you take a power bank with you, the best choice is to get Cordless Mini Travel Flat Iron. It’s not expensive and you can charge it from your power bank. I’m not sure, maybe they may let you charge it in recharge tents 🙂
    I use this one myself, esp when I travel to Europe, so didn’t have to worry about the different plugs and voltage.

  82. Hi, Nora!
    You can find the answer here. I’m glad, that you followed my advice and bought yourself a new hot comb.

  88. I covered these themes in my articles in straightening brushes reviews, so, please, check them out!

  89. Thank you for your feedback!

  90. Clients who use keratin on their hair report that their hair is smoother and easier to manage as a result, but it’s not a guarantee that their hair will grow faster. I use
    it’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In plus Keratin Spray 10 oz and can recommend all of the good from my review above. Good luck with your shopping.

  91. Thank you for sharing, Amelia! I hope you’ve enjoyed my blog.

  92. Hi, Riley. Thank you for your question!
    There are a lot of keratin products for damaged hair. I personally recommend L’ANZA , because it’s a trustworthy brand, their products are focused on hair healing. My clients get me a lot of positive feedback about them.

  93. Hi, Trinity.
    No, using a blow dryer can’t be a cause of a hair loss.
    Thank you for your question. If you are worried about your hair I can advice best hair mask in one of my posts.

  94. Hood dryer is a good way to relax a bit. Don’t use it when you are in a hurry. It might take about 20 minutes for short hair to get hair dry with it.

  95. Hi, Betty! Thank you for your question.
    I’ve personally never met anyone who had an allergy to boar bristles. But you better get a consultation from your doctor to be sure,

  98. I have one too! My husband always scolds me, because we stay in hotels that have hair dryers but…. Sometimes we travel on buses at night and before we get to the hotel room or check-in, I can make magic with my Andis (best travel hair dryer in my opinion, tbh). Thank you for sharing your opinion!

  99. As a mother myself, I have to admit that kids are really sensitive to any kind of noises. Especially new ones to them. So you actually can choose any one from my review.

  100. That’s nice that you have a different experience using Centrix Q Zone! Thank you for sharing it.

  101. To be honest, I’m used to my MHU one, but a lot of my colleagues are totally fine with their Beautural hair dryers.

  102. If you damaged your hair seriously you better get an offline consultation. Write me an e-mail, please, with a proper description of your issue.

  103. Thank you, dear, I hope you’ll enjoy your shopping!

  104. Thank you for your response! I will cover hair treatment in one of my future articles, so please follow my blog to get a proper answer to your question.

  105. Dear Stephanie!

    It’s a great pleasure for me to put an end to all your questions about hot rollers.
    Your friends are absolutely right — using hot rollers on wet hair brings great damage, and remember to blow dry your hair thoroughly before hot rolling it. Believe me, hot rollers work wonderfully on dry hair; the fixation is excellent because of the hot temperature and high-quality clips.

    Preparation for hot roll curling is pretty much the same as with your blow straightening routine. First of all, put some heat protecting spray or the oil of your choice. Then, if you know the right type of styling foam that suits you, divide your hair into locks and put a small amount of foam on each lock before rolling it.

  106. Hello, Simona!

    You’re so right about appreciating your natural curls! And I want to cheer you up: it’s entirely safe for your hair structure to use hot rollers if you want to add some curliness to it. My general advice is to use a heat protection spray and find the hot rollers that are comfortable for you. Conair Multisize Hot Rollers are the ones that will suit you: the smaller rollers are just ½ in diameter so they will match your needs perfectly.

    As for the straightening your hair with hot rollers: yes, it’s quite possible. Although the level of damage caused by such a procedure strongly depends on the materials used in flat irons and hot rollers, on the average hot rollers are a bit safer. Use hot rollers of large diameter with titanium or tourmaline ceramic base: BabyLiss Pro titanium rollers and Infiniti Pro set by Conair are my top choices for straightening curly hair. I just have to warn you that if you need an effect of sleek & straight hair the flat iron is a better choice. If your hair is of a curly type, there will still be some waviness left after large hot rollers.

    Hope my answers will help you in your hairstyling decisions!

  107. Hi, Sophie!

    It’s nice that you take such good care of your hair. Of course, African American hair takes a little bit more hair routine than European hair, but it also rewards its owners with amazing thickness and strength.

    I’d recommend you to use Caruso Professional Steam Head Setter. In the article, I pointed out its enormous effect on the thin and fine hair but didn’t mention just how great it works for taming thick hair of African American type. There are 30 rollers in total so you can easily get all your tresses covered. It has a very tight hold so even your most unmanageable locks won’t unfix it. And a foam body of the roller easily compresses making it perfect for use on long hair. The Caruso rollers are of five diameter types: you can use the ½ inch to make nice small curls or 1 ½ inch for more wavy hairstyle. Thanks to well-fixing clips this set will leave your hair curly and wavy for a few days.

  108. Hi Ally!
    Thank you for the question.

    I’d recommend Vidal Sasson Heated Brush Styler. It is not as expensive as more professional 2-in-1 brushes and seems like a great dryer to start with if you doubt your hairstyling abilities. It has all the basic features of a professional brush dryer, and you end up with more smooth and healthy-looking hair.

    With this styler, you can make your hair straight at a high-temperature setting. Just don’t forget to use some protective oils before drying: argan and coconut will do fine. After applying the oils let your hair dry on its own or fasten the process with a hair dryer of your choice. Your goal here is to make your hair no less than 80 % dry, and only after that, you can proceed with the 2-in-1 brush. Divide your hair into sections while brushing for the long-lasting result.

    Vidal Sasson Heated Brush Styler comes in three colors to individualize your drying sessions and make them more fun. The brush is of a small diameter so you may have your hair tangled at first, but it takes just a little bit of practice to get used to this device. The handle of compact size makes the usage convenient even for users with small palms. If you face problems with this kind of equipment, ask me anything! I will be glad to help you handle your hair easy!

  109. Hi Sarah!
    Thank you for your question.

    You seem like a long-time user of hair tools so I’d recommend you BaByliss products from professional Titanium series. They use Nano Titanium technology that protects the heating element from overheat while reducing heating time. BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Rotating Brush Hair Dryer may be a little bit difficult to grasp at the beginning, but you will love it after a couple of uses. There are three temperature settings, so you can dry your hair on any temperature that suits you, it will still look healthy and strong. The brush won’t make your medium length hair too curly, but will definitely add to the volume.

    There’s also BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Dryer if your primary goal is to bring you damaged hair back to life. This dryer is the best option for fine hair because of its careful drying and six temperature settings. Add ionization for a smooth look and a strong feel and volume boosting potential, and you get the perfect combination for your needs.

    Another way of treating your hair is by using ceramic-based products like Remington T-Studio LUX Dryer with Brush. It has a special infusion in its core that provides the highest level of protection while drying. With this device, you can get by without such additional products like oils and heat-protective sprays.

  110. Dear Kim, I know your troubles by heart. Fine and frizzy hair is probably the most difficult to tame, though it doesn’t seem like it to thick-haired ‘outsiders’. I have a few tips for you.

    First of all, your choice of hot rollers must be well thought-out. Ionic technology is a must for you, as it locks your hair moisture and doesn’t let the frizzes to appear. Choose Remington Ionic Conditioning Hair Setter or Caruso Professional Steam Hairsetter, both of them are great for creating tight, long-lasting curls with minimal damage to your chevelure. Remington rollers are a bit expensive, but they have a perfect up-to-date ionic technology. Caruso rollers are not so good in keeping your hair healthy and shiny, but with the help of additional styling products, you’ll get terrific results.

    My second tip: your haircare and styling products are just as important as your rollers. First of all, use a fine hair shampoo or a shampoo/conditioner set to boost up your tresses from the roots and add them pre-styling volume and sleekness. Try Kenra Volumizing set with protein formula or Dove Nutritive Solutions Series if you’re looking for cheaper means. Always use keratin-based styling sprays or products with natural oils before any heating procedures! Argan, roucou and coconut oils work best for thin hair.

    I hope my advice is helpful.

  111. Thank you for your question, Laurel.
    It’s always nice to meet someone, as you say, ‘picky’, who wants to give their hair maximum protection and health.

    It’s true that sprays can go with hot rollers not as good as they do with hot brushes and flat irons. Peter Coppola spray is a nice choice for bringing your hair to life and boosting up its volume and shine. All heat protectants work pretty much alike: they lock your hair cuticles and don’t let the heating effect damage them. Lighter heat protection sprays don’t contain Keratin, so their impact isn’t seen on your hair immediately, but they work just as good at smoothening and protecting. I’d recommend ghd Heat Protection Spray or Aveda Speed of Light spray with natural oils.

    If you want to concentrate more on fixing your curls, try styling sprays with added heat protectants: TIGI Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier is a perfect choice if you prefer to use your hair spray while styling and CHI Firm Hold Hairspray is the one that is the best for finishing your hairstyle. Don’t forget to use a heat protection spray before hot rolling your hair, and fixing spray right after you finished.

  112. Creating a beautiful hairstyle when you have thin straight hair on your own is quite difficult. It is worth paying attention to the Infiniti Pro by Conair with a comfortable rotating brush or practical brush for fast drying of John Freed Revlon. For people with thin hair, there is a perfect tool like Remington T-Studio LUX comb with Helen Troy. A hairdryer with a Vidal Sasson comb or a heated Styler comb will help you to make of a beautiful hairstyle quickly. The technique guarantees comfortable, easy care for every hair type. It is worth paying attention to Calista Heat Curling Brush Plus which can create the perfect hairstyle from wavy hair in a few minutes.

  113. Hi Cori,

    Various product lines are intended to help with thin and long hair. One of the most popular among them – Infiniti Pro by Conair. This tool has a rotating head and powerful blow of hot air. Another reliable and practical device is a special brush for hair drying by John Freed’s Revlon. For wavy hair, it would be good to use a Calista Heat Curling Brush Plus. Mechanical dryers with a strong blow of hot air are Remington T-Studio LUX and a brush presented from Helen Troy. And a Vidal Sasson with a comfy brush will guarantee to make a beautiful hairstyle in no time without problems.

  114. Hi Paula,

    The daily care of weak and greasy hair with low volume is pretty complicated. It requires the usage of special instruments, which are difficult to find on your own. I would recommend you Infiniti Pro by Conair that has a rotating head for making up a significant hair volume. One more instrument – Calista Heat Curling Brush Plus. The thermal brush Styler can be another helping tool for creating a neat and good-looking hairstyle in a couple of minutes. Once you try BaBylissPRO Nano Titanum instrument, giving your hair a fantastic volume in almost no time, you will forget about your problem forever.

  115. I do not recommend you buying a thing in random places. Believe my words – that will help you to rid off numerous troubles. If it is about a household appliance, search for verified shops or internet platforms you have heard of or have checked already by yourself. Only then you can rely on qualified support from an expert. In case your switching-on button works from time to time, you should consult with a master – he will help you to find a solution. And before making a purchase on Amazon or another website do not forget to look for reviews to be sure your future commodity will not cause a problem.

  116. Hi,

    Your case is really unusual. But fortunately, there are various products, like Infiniti Pro by Conair, that has mechanically spinning brush, and will be a good fit for you. One more alternative – Calista Heat Curling Brush Plus. This is a perfect tool because of the thermosetting brush for making a beautiful hairstyle on short wavy hair. You may also try Remington T-Studio LUX with a rotating head that guarantees a fantastic result, or Vidal Sasson as an excellent helping device in everyday care.

    Hope this helps!

  117. Hi, Heather! Thank you for following my reviews.

    You got it right: cheaper options probably won’t serve your hair well. I’d recommend T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers from this article. They are made with tourmaline ceramics that turns positive ions into negative making your hair smooth and more manageable; it also takes noticeably less heat for styling. Their velvet surface is excellent at gripping your hair, and the clips are of high quality and won’t fall off even from the most slippery locks. If you look for beautiful natural waves styling with minimum effort, this is your top choice. If you want tighter curls of smaller diameter, T3 rollers won’t suit you. There are two more cons: it’s a pure joy to use these, but their price is not so pleasant. Another possible reason for discomfort is the rollers weight: if you have heavy hair, the whole experience can be a bit unpleasant. I’d advise you to try them out in the salon before purchasing.

    If you need tight curls along with the total control of your curling process, I’d advise you to use a TYME Iron Pro. It’s a two-in-one curler and straightener that can handle any hair type. And with a little bit of experience, you will manage to make any hairstyle with the help of it. Also a pricy choice, but, as you probably know already, it’s next to impossible to work on a thick hair with cheap equipment.

    Please tell me more about your hairstyling experience so that I could provide you with more precise recommendations.

  118. Hi there, Jennifer,

    There’s most certainly no need for desperation. The size of your curls or waves depends on the diameter of the hot rollers and the time you keep them on your locks. The waves Velcro rollers are fine, but I haven’t tested them long enough to make up a full professional opinion. Look for them in my next hot rollers reviews. From the ones I’ve tried so far I’d choose John Frieda Ion Hot Rollers, they will make shoulder-length hair look silky smooth and voluminous thanks to their titanium ceramic base and a diameter that is just right for the big waves you need. They also heat up pretty quick and are quite easily manageable even for beginners.

    To be sure your hair looks 100% perfect on your wedding day, I’d recommend you to try John Frieda Hot Rollers beforehand to get used to them and make sure you can easily style big waves with their help. Don’t forget to use the strong fixing products on your curls. John Frieda Frizz Ease is another product from this quality professional brand that will bring fixation and flexibility to your waves without making them look heavy and overstyled. TIGI also make wonderful hair products for such festive occasions. Try their Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier to make your locks bouncy and protected from humidity and dryness alike.

    I wish you a wonderful wedding!

  119. Dear Viola!

    Thank you for your comment 😀
    I’m sorry if I was inconsistent about short hair in this particular article. Yes, obviously you can make curls with hot rollers. In fact, it’s one of the most convenient ways to make them.

    From the ones represented in the article, I’d recommend you to use Remington Ionic Conditioning Hair Set. It has a ¾ inch and 1-inch rollers that are perfect for curly pixie hair stylings, and if you grow your hair a little bit, 1 ¼ inches rollers will also be of use. This set is a bit expensive but it’s worth every penny, and I’m sure that after years of practising with curling papers you will immediately learn how to use them. There are a heat indicator and quite handy clips to fix your locks. So many upgrades compared to curling paper! Just don’t forget to spray your hair with a heat protector beforehand. Another option is small diameter curling iron: ½ to 1 inch will be perfect. Read more on curling irons in my article or other trusted sources.

  120. To get golden blonde without brassiness, you should use purple shampoo. The primary purpose of these shampoos is to help you get the desired blonde without brassiness or warm orange. The purple shampoo is your must-have if you prefer cold, ashy, white, and silver blonde.

  121. You should follow the recommendations of the manufacturer and leave the purple shampoo for the recommended period. Usually, it is only 1-2 minutes for the first time and a few minutes longer afterward.

  122. I’ve tested plenty of purple shampoos and for best results I can recommend the following: Clairol Silver Paired with the Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Conditioner, JOICO Color Endure Violet Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Blonde Shampoo, Blonde Moment Purple Shampoo by Winsome & Wisdom – Best Professional Purple Shampoo, Not Your Mother’s Blonde Moment Treatment Shampoo. The complete list with descriptions of properties you can find in my article about purple shampoos.

  123. You should choose a shampoo regarding the color of your hair. Blue and purple shampoos were formulated for possessors of different hair colors. Purple is for medium blonde, extra-light, and true blondes. Purple shampoos are also perfect for blondes with silver. They eliminate unnecessary yellowness of your favorite color. Blue shampoos are better for brunettes, brunettes with highlights, and really dark blondes. Blue brassy and warm orange tones. Guiding by these recommendations, you will quickly find a shampoo precisely for your hair.

  124. Hi Maria,
    Thank you for your question!
    I think Infiniti Pro by Conair Rotating Brush Hair Dryer will be a good solution for you.
    Its ionization function reduces frizz and ensures silky, glossy look. It is exactly what you need to sleek your hair out.

  125. Yes, of course! The Kandy Brush is a trend for men’s beards grooming maintenance!
    If you have a beard that needs taming there is no better tool.

  126. Thank you! Will fix it soon.

  127. Hello Addy,
    I recommend you to take flat iron by Deogratias with you.
    Its USB charging cable makes re-charging possible in any location in the world.
    The iron is lightweight for traveling and can be used for about 30 minutes, allowing you to change your hairstyle at any time, anywhere.

  128. Hi Christine!
    I feel you will find Infiniti Pro by Conair and John Frieda Hair Dryer Brushes particularly convenient and useful.
    These brushes are suitable for such hair as yours.

  129. Thank you, dear! Glad you like my blog 🙂

  130. Hi Rosane! I feel that ProCabello Ceramic Straightening Hair Brush will work great for you.
    Its ceramic surface, moisturizing and antibacterial technology will help to deal with your problem.

  131. Hi! Please email me at [email protected] so we can discuss it.

  132. That`s a pity! Read my blog to be in touch with the latest price changes 😉

  133. Thank you! This is my pleasure!

  134. Thank you!

  135. Hi Dianne! Thank you for your comment.
    Vidal Sasson Heated Brush Styler is specially designed to style thin and weakened hair like yours.
    I suggest you read more about this tool.

  136. Happy to help! Thank you for kind words!

  137. Hi,
    Check Infiniti Pro by Conair Rotating Brush Hair Dryer.
    You will like it!

  138. Glad to read it! Thank you!

  139. Hi!
    I suggest you to examine Infiniti Pro by Conair Rotating Brush Hair Dryer.

  140. Hi!
    You can straighten wet hair sometimes with the Sutra Brush, if you are in a hurry. But keep in mind that it can be damaging to your hair. I recommend always to blow-dry hair before straightening.

  141. It depends on how much time you need to straighten your hair.
    For example, DEOGRA straightener is designed for up to 90 minutes of continuous operation without recharging. It means you can use the device for 4-5 days if your hairstyling process takes up to 20 minutes. DEOGRA has high-quality Korean SAMSUNG batteries with a short charging time (only 2 hours).
    CHI Escape Battery Powered Hair Straightener has a lithium battery that gives from 30 minutes to 1 hour of continuous heating, depending on the settings you choose.
    Carmen Wireless Hair Straightener has a rechargeable lithium battery, the flat iron may be continuously used for about 25 minutes from one full charge.

  142. I’d recommend you to find the professional hairdresser and have your locks bleached and straightened up at the salon.
    The professional hairdresser knows how to highlight hair properly, and he will tell you whether your curls could be straightened right after the bleaching or not.

  143. Pull out all the stops to yank it out. You will not break it. I do the same with mine.

  144. You’re welcome! I am always happy to write for you!

  145. Hi! My favorite is Revlon Hot Air Brush. Its barrel allows getting maximum volume for your hair. And the speed of rotation is optimal for creating great curls in a matter of a few seconds. I highly recommend this brush.

  146. I wouldn’t recommend applying straightening brush on wet hair. Your hair might get pulled out or tangled. Let your locks fully dry before straightening.

  147. Thank you very much! It is my pleasure!

  148. Hello!

    To avoid damaging a hairstyling tool, it should be cleaned on a regular basis.

    Follow these steps to care for your future dryer:

    1. Start to clean a dryer when it is completely cool. Don’t clean while it is plugged in.
    2. Remove the strands which remain in your dryer.
    3. Damp a soft cloth with some cleaning solution and start wiping it.
    4. Keep it going until your dryer becomes perfectly clean.
    5. Do it regularly to keep it in a better performance for a long time.

    Hope, this helps.

  149. Hello Brad,

    Examine the Post about straightening brushes here:
    Here you will find excellent styling tools and appliances that will be suitable for you.

  150. Hello Dian!

    I do not recommend to brush wet hair at all. When hair is wet, it is especially vulnerable to damage. Water weakens the weakest bonds within strands of hair, removing its strength. The simple act of brushing can lead to dire consequences in this weakened state.

    If you really can’t wait to brush your hair, you should use a wide-toothed comb. This will cause less damage than a regular brush. Choose a comb, like Burstenhaus Redecker Maple Wood Brush. This brush is wide-toothed, and its bristles have a special waxy coating for comfortable and safe combing and protection of hair.

  151. Hello Kathy,
    A new Rowenta CF 9320 Heated Brush Styler costs $229.79.
    You can see the price of every hairstyling tool by clicking on pink buttons called “Price” or “Check the price”.
    Hope this helps.

  152. Hello!

    Cleaning of the Sutra Hair Straightening Brush, like every other tool, is a simple and quick process if it is done on a regular basis.

    Follow these steps to care for your future brush:

    1. Start to clean a brush when it is completely cool. Don’t clean your brush while it is plugged in.
    2. Remove the strands which remain in your brush.
    3. Damp a soft cloth with some cleaning solution and start wiping the small spaces between the bristles.
    4. Keep it going until your brush becomes perfectly clean.
    5. Do it regularly to keep a brush in a better performance for a long time.

    Hope, this helps.

  153. Hello!

    Yes, it`s a dual-voltage tool, it can be used in countries with 220 V power supply without using a voltage converter.

  154. Hello!

    Good news! There are 3 hot air brushes, that can be safely used all over the globe: Conair Instant Heat Hot Curl Brush, Conair Supreme 2-in-1 Hot Air Styling Brush, Conair Curling Brush (1.5 inches) Dual Voltage. They feature dual voltage (110 V and 240 V), so you can use them outside the US without a power adaptor. But keep in mind that you will probably need a plug-in adaptor for the power socket in the country you’re going to.

    Read reviews on these devices here:

  155. Hi Rita!
    Thanks for your question.

    I think Vidal Sasson Heated Brush Styler will be perfect for you.
    Its 1-inch barrel helps too get closer to roots, unlike many other traditional models, so it fits short hair well. Moreover, this device is great for thick and curly hair, because it allows making it straight and smooth at the high-temperature setting.

  156. These two brushes are intrinsically good. But if it doesn’t matter very much to you, I recommend you to choose Burstenhaus Redecker Maple Wood Brush of course. I like it for its hefty handle, the brush feels great in hand. The brush is made from olive wood and features maple straight pins and bristles – making it ideal for long and curly hair.

  157. Hello! Helen of Troy is definitely good, but there are two other hot air brushes, I advise you to consider.

    The first one is Revlon Hot Air Brush For Styling & Frizz Control.
    The kit includes two brushes for styling, and a smaller one will be perfect for your short hair. The brush helps curling hair close to the roots, and soft bristles will not scratch the scalp. There are three heat and speed settings, so you can quickly adapt the temperature to your thin hair type. Its ionization function helps to reduce frizz and makes up for healthy gloss and shine.

    The second one is Remington T-Studio LUX Blow Dryer with Brush.
    There are two temperature and speed settings so that you can adjust the brush to your hair type. I advise you to choose the lower one, as you have thin hair. The 1-inch wide barrel that comes with the kit is good for short hair. The barrel is ceramic, so it does not damage and burn hair structure. And the sweet bonus of this brush is that you don’t need to apply protectants because it has a unique micro-conditioner infusion.

    Hope this information is helpful to you 🙂

  158. Hi Rebecca! Thank you for your question.

    I haven’t tested the Micropur straightening brush, so I can`t say anything about it.

    I’ve tested AsaVea hair straightener 2.0. It is one the best brush straightener for sure, but it fits thin and short hair more than thick and long one.

    I recommend to choose the FemJolie Straightening Brush for your daughter. It`s one of the best straightening brushes for strong and thick hair in my experience. It also has its pleasant cons: exquisite feminine design, a long rotating cord, and lightweight. This brush heats up to 230 C in two minutes. It is also created with the application of anti-scald technology that helps to protect from the burns, so your daughter will not feel discomfort during the process. And finally, the brush has auto shut-off function in cause forgetting to turn off appliances at home.
