1. If you have curly hair, you might find you need to straighten the roots once dry, as I find the tension is not high enough to get the frizz out.

2. Make sure hair is pretty much dry, then dampen with a hair protector spray.

3. Really good for straightened hair, you can plump it up with the BBBH so there's a bit of volume!

Yes I have curly hair.....thats really why I bought it I want to stop using straightners.
Have used it -not really impressed but first time so will give it a few more attempts.

It took a lot longer than I was expecting and tbh I find it much better on already straightened or tonged second-day hair. If I just use the BBH I find it looks fabulous for about half an hour and then it goes frizzy. This doesn't happen when I blow dry with a brush and hairdryer so I can only assume the tension and heat aren't high enough.

I use mine on dry hair that gone frizzy or needs a pep up the day after.

Don't make it spin too much or you'll create dreadlock things. Spraying sections with heat stuff makes it stay in longer.

I've been thinking about asking for one for Christmas. I have dry, frizzy hair and usually use a directional nozzle on a hair dryer and a ceramic barrelled brush. Should I bother, do you think?

I blast my hair with a normal hair dryer for a couple of minutes and then when my hair is still damp, use the Big Hair. It's great.

There's some good tutorials on YouTube.

My hair is really curly and messy and I find it great. My tip is to take your time to divide your hair in sections and start from the back. It takes a bit long but for me is easier, cheaper and quicker than going to the hairdressers so I don't mind.

Definitely look on You Tube.
It took me a few attempts to get to grips with it. When I do use it people always ask if I've been to the hairdressers.
