Babyliss Big Hair setting off the smoke alarm

(4 Posts)

The smoke alarm is on the landing ceiling, and I stand on the landing to dry my hair.

I've tried three times with my brand-new Big Hair appliance (brainwashed by MN) and each time the alarm goes off within 30 secs. No smoke!

Anyone else having this? What could be the matter? Am I condemned to small hair forever?

Must admit I have seen steam coming off the brush,you'll have to find somewhere else to use it I think

Mine did this too ! Not the first couple of times I used it but did on Sunday, Ive moved to a room with no alarm to do my hair.

progress of sorts: alarm doesn't activate if I leave Big Hair on the lower heat setting
