Who has and would you recommend? How long does your hair have to be?

Have and would definately has transformed my life blush
My hair is in a bob, just above my shoulders.
I used to towel dry and then straighten, now just wait for hair to be 80% dry and then use the BBH

I am intrigued....tell me more.
I have shite very long wavy frizzy hair which I have to straighten before leaving the house (and the only time I break into a run is when it is raining)

It will make me have hair like a goddess??

I have very fine hair in a short inverted bob. I've been thinking about getting one of these do yoiu think it would be worth it for me? I need some va va voom in the hair department!

Yes megatron- my hair also fine (or if honest pancake flat and dull)- big hair makes my bob look like just been to hairdresser and I am a fool when it comes to hair styling .

Megatron Tue 14-Jun-11 20:28:37

Ah I think I might need to get one then! Are they expensive?

Gastonladybird Tue 14-Jun-11 20:34:00

About 45 quid on amazon

I am very pleased with mine. My hair is fine and not particularly long but it makes it easy and quick to style. so much easier than a brush and hairdryer.

I got one of these and it did absolutely nothing for me. I have longish hair (about armpit length) that's thick and naturally curly but with lots of frizz, which I dry then straighten as I don't like it curly. With the BBH I had to dry, straighten and then put mousse in and use the BBH. It didn't work if I started to use it before straightening my hair - just left it a frizzy mess.

I sold my BBH last week on Ebay for more than I paid for it grin.

I wasnt struck with mine,i have long thick hair & to start with i thought it was great,it gave me a lovely blow dried look but after a couple of weeks i actually noticed that underneath at the back of my head it had snapped my hair.
I sold mine to my friend who has a bob & she loves it.

I loved mine when I first had it and do still use it, but I don't find that it holds the style well at all.

If I go outside, then no chance, but even if I've been inside all day, by the end of the day the gloss and bounce has gone and the frizz that is lurking beneath has found its way to the surface.

i style it with Moroccan Hair Oil, which has also been a massive overly-hyped let down as far as I'm concerned - but it was so blardy expensive I'll finish the bottle if it kills me.

Oh I don't know now .... maybe it's better for fine hair than thick? I don't want to fork out £45 if it's going to snap my hair, I need all I can get!

Gave mine to my mum.

I have shoulder length hair and it was a nightmare. Tangled where it should have straightened, took forever to dry, I swear it added to split ends.

The first one I had broke down on the mornng of my sister's wedding...disaster in rented house resulting in grumpy Norks for the day. Got a replacement and gave it one last chance, but still crapola

I have very thick hair that's past my shoulders and I love mine.

Hi, it does take a whil to get used to (has the buttons to make it teirl up holding your hair in a curl at the top of your head) but after you get used to which way to press it definatly does make an improvement. I have thick hair, dont use any products just towel dry my hair wait for about 15 mins to dry a bit more then use the big hair, if i do it in the morning it keeps its bounce till at least dinner time, the straight and glossy look though stays all day even if my hair goes flat!
