I have Argos vouchers so really hoped it would be reduced there but they aren't. Are they reduced anywhere?

Asda have them reduced on their website but sold out! Might be worth a look instore?

I was lucky enough to win one on local forum for £7 yay wink

I'll try my local Asda tomorrow, need to drive past anyway. Thanks for the tip off.

Anyone seen them reduced anywhere else? I really want one!

Asda only had the 42mm one for shorter hair.

Boots have a fiver off online, £39.99. May have just ordered one...

i was just about to post asking this same question. mine died this afternoon, was using it, and there was a loud pop and a blue spark from the handle. i switched it off and daren't try it again, suspect the heating element has gone sad

Think I'll just have to get it from argos because I have the vouchers. Not worth paying in another shop if best deal is a fiver off, better to use up the vouchers. Just need to find an argos with them in stock.

I'm going to but one today. Reserved at Argos - full price £44.99 hmm but I really want it for tomorrow night.

Wilkinsons normally reduce them to £10 after Christmas. I got one last year.

I've literally just ordered one from asda for £28. They had them in stock. Wilkos didn't even have them on the website!

SirChenjin Fri 27-Dec-13 09:09:25

That one for £28 is the smaller barrel Bigbuttons - just checking you knew that? smile

They're so average

SirChenjin Fri 27-Dec-13 09:12:52

Oh no - definitely not average. I've had 2 now - both stopped working sadly - but they are the only things that have managed to tame my thick, wavy, coarse hair and make it shiney and swishy. Fab things.

Can you use the small one on long hair if hair is very fine?

Hadmeathello Fri 27-Dec-13 09:19:18

Big buttons, wilkinsons have them in store. Not sure of price this year.

bigbuttons Fri 27-Dec-13 09:22:20

sirchenjin thank you, yes I know. I have the bigger one, have had it for years, love it, but I have a short ish bob!! I have managed ok with the bigger barrel but really wanted to see what it was like to have one that actually suited my hair length!

SirChenjin Fri 27-Dec-13 09:27:03

I'm wondering whether to go for that smaller one too now - my hair is thick collar length, and sometimes the big one does make my hair big (which I guess is the point grin)

bigbuttons Fri 27-Dec-13 10:19:30

I find it hard to do the back with the big one and I think the smaller one would give me more control iyswim?

Does the Tresemme version do the same thing??

princessalbert Fri 27-Dec-13 10:26:49
SirChenjin Fri 27-Dec-13 10:47:51

Just ordered the smaller one from Asda - thanks for the link bigbuttons smile

Does the Tresemme one spin?

bigbuttons Fri 27-Dec-13 16:58:32

Oh good, hope it works for yousmile

jennimoo Fri 27-Dec-13 17:01:14

Slightly OT but how do you use the BBH? Do you have to dry your hair mostly first or does it work from towel dried?

SirChenjin Fri 27-Dec-13 18:22:02

Yes - you have to dry your hair first until it's damp, and then use the BBH on sections of hair. If I'm in a rush I use it on dry hair too - it takes the worst of the kinks out.

GlindaForGood Fri 27-Dec-13 19:03:10

Ended up getting the 50mm one from Argos, it only cost me a fiver on top of my vouchers so not bad really. I nearly went for the 42mm one for £28 in Asda, my store had one left on the shelf this afternoon, but glad I didn't because the big one is great. My hair is about 2 inches below my shoulders, I think the 42mm would have been too small.

I've used it on my 4yr daughter and I, we both look fabulous now fgrin
