Brush for blow drying hair

(8 Posts)

Any recommendations for an easy to use brush to blow dry hair with?
At the moment I comb through my hair with a wide tooth comb then blow dry with my fingers, as I am not coordinated enough to do a proper blow dry with a round brush like the hairdresser does. However, I am growing my hair and this method is not working any more, my hair is getting tangled as I blow dry and it looks a state.
Any magic tricks or tips? Thanks.

You could get a big paddle brush, which is useful for lifting as you blowdry to add volume, or if your hair is long enough, get the Babyliss Big Hair (the smaller barrel is pink). Requires no coordination and makes a big difference.

Babyliss Big Hair without doubt

I cant get on board with a round brush either it makes my hair really frizzy, same for babyliss big hair, unless your co ordinated Ii think its a waste of time, they just got tangled up in my hair and I ended up giving it away.

I found a vent brush so much easier, it dries my hair straight, and doesn't break it off or hurt when brushing, I go between the vent brush and a paddle brush for brushing when it's dry. Both I got from tk maxx so saved a few quid too.

You want one of these
The bristles are very hard, rigid plastic, so it's not one for brushing your scalp, but I'm finding mine really good for speeding up blow drying and keeping it tangle-free.

Thanks for the replies. Is the babyliss big hair quick? My hair isn't very thick and only takes 5 mins with a 1600w hairdryer, i wouldn't want to spend 15mins on it every morning.

I use a clamp brush like this. www.amazon.co.uk/Abody-Straightener-Professional-Hairdressing-Straightening/dp/B00TZRDDVM/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1_s_it?s=drugstore&ie=UTF8&qid=1473792930&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=Clamp+straitening+brush
