Not a hot air one but I have a Babyliss Big Hair that's been used twice and is in perfect condition apart from some very long dark hairs wrapped around the brush that I'll try to get out - turns out my hair is too big for it. I've used it twice and it just didn't suit. If you'd like it you're more than welcome to it.

I bought my BBH after recommendations from here. Now I never dry without it! I rough dry with my hair dryer then finish with the BBH. I have a bob and it gives it a lift I never achieved with a hair dryer and brush.

Also recommend the BBQ but the barrel is quite big. I just replaced mine with the John Frieda rotating one and it's pretty much identical but I got it cheaper. Hair has been really shiny using it too.

Lidl have a Britney Spears (!) one in this week. I wish someone would review it compared to BBH.

Has anyone else used the babyliss big hair, I've been looking at one but as we are on limited budget I don't want to waste money if it's no good. I've got shoulder length hair that is quite thick but would like a smooth volume if that makes sense

Would you like it? PM me if so. And if you don't get on with it I have another Mnetter you can pass it on to!

I have fine shoulder length/long bob.

I have both a BBH and a bog standard hot air styler (HAS). With both I blast my hair with standard hairdryer then finish with BBH or HAS

I don't use BBH every day as I don't have the time to dry in sections which I have to do otherwise it doesn't add volume and end up in a tangle. So i use it as my 'going out' hair dryer

I have the HAS they sell in Lidl periodically (looks similar to the Britney Spears one but usually £10). Is as good as any other brand I've owned previously. If I section my hair I can achieve similar results to the BBH but takes a little longer. Day to day I use it to make my hair straighter/styled rather than add volume
