The Blow Brush is a hot brush which functions as a styling tool designed to integrate the function of a blow dryer with a hairbrush. Such combinations allow users to dry their hair while styling it at the same time. The brush contains a barrel through which hot air is emitted by way of vents. This brush offers six hair styling tools in one. It will not only brush your hair, but dry your hair, add volume to it, curl it, detangle it, and straighten it.
Total Cost Breakdown
- Additional Pieces
With the various additional pieces, this styling item lets you replace all of your styling tools with a single unit. It transforms into many things, with different hair styling additions which simply hook in place to the end of your wand. This lets you use it as a flat iron right out of the shower, a curling iron, or just a hot air brush to get your wet locks nice and dry.
- Nylon Bristles
It has nylon bristles which take heat but continue to grip your hair while you brush through it.
- Smaller Barrel
With a smaller, narrower barrel which is less than one inch in width, this product will give tighter, bouncier curls to users. The bristle features which can be changed out allow users to change the length they need for the type of hair styling they want.
- Cooling Setting
It has an exclusive cooling setting which other units do not have. The cooler setting is designed to decrease the high temperature steadily so that the styling technique you use remains in your hair for a longer period of time.
- Ionic Technology
It offers styling brushes and a dual level detangling unit which work in conjunction with the ionic heat styling dryer. The ionic heat works by emitting negative ions which combat the high rate of positive ions in the hair. These positive ions are the cause of frizzy hair or flyaway hair. Negative ions seal any damaged cuticles in your hair and lock in moisture that might otherwise escape. This is what gives hair a frizz free look, shine, and soft texture.
This product is a ceramic infused hot barrel which can work as a detangler, straightener, curling iron, or smoothing brush. It works well allegedly in minutes to convert hair from wet to dry, using ionic technology to alleviate frizz.
- Barrel Size
The barrel is not adjustable, so users are left with the narrower barrel and therefore cannot get looser, relaxed waves from this device.
Tips & Tricks
- The Right Temperature
The alternate temperatures is one of the best features for different hair types. Reason being it allows this single unit to work on dry hair, fragile hair, fine hair, thick hair, coarse hair, or anything in between. Finer hair should have no more than 300 degrees on their temperature setting while thicker hair should have no more than 340 degrees.
- Fine Hair
Those with fine hair have different hair needs, especially because the hair in each strand is thinner than other types and the quantity is fewer. For this reason, thinner hair often lacks volume and doesn’t hold any hair style for a long period of time. Due to the fact that there exists little hair at the start, compared to thick hair, it is more imperative for such consumers to protect their hair from damage.
Having said that, those with fine hair need to find a soft to medium bristle. Doing so will allow it to slide gentle through the hair without yanking it from the scalp or tangling it in the brush. A hot air brush with a high and low setting is imperative. Only having a high setting for fine hair is what results in damage. Low settings are often better suited.
- How to Get Top Curls
Getting top curls with this hot air brush is simple.
- Warm up
Allow your brush to warm up the same way you would any other styling device. By waiting for it to cool, you avoid uneven appearances or that single spot you have to do two or three times leading to damage.
Section off your hair into even strands. If you want varying sizes curls, then uneven strands is acceptable.
- Temperature Control
Select the temperature control setting you want beforehand. You don’t want to simply pick a strand of hair, use the brush, and find out the temperature was too hot.
- Back to Front
Start from the back and move on toward your sides. Finish with the crown of your head. With each section, start from the bottom and brush the hair the same way you would otherwise.
Glide the brush down your hair from root to tip and try to run down each strand in a uniform and consistent rate. This will give you better heat distribution. By starting at the root, you also add volume to your hair.
When your sections turn from wet to dry, start twirling the brush the way you would a curling iron and let the curls loosely fall. It is best to let each strand cool down before you try and curl another one. Failure to do so might lead to excess heat distribution between the strands, with some strands getting more heat than others.
- Let it Warm up
No matter what quality of hair you have, be sure to turn it on and wait for it to heat up. If you try to turn it on and use it right away, especially if you are late for something, it will not help you to achieve the style you want. What’s more, be careful how long you leave it turned on or where you sit it down in between styling. Sitting it down on a wooden surface, for example, could leave a slight burn mark on the wooden surface.
Cleaning the Brush
Just the same as a curling iron or flat iron, you want to clean your brush regularly. To do this, make sure it is off and has been off for long enough to be completely cool. Take a dampened cloth and wipe it over your brush, including the bristles. Remove loose hair. If the filter is removable, you can remove it and wipe it down too.
Try to make a habit of cleaning it off with a cloth each time you use it, after the heat has dissipated. This reduces the amount of hair care products which build up in the brush. Remember that even if you don’t use massive amounts of chemicals in your hair, you still use shampoo and conditioner which might leave residue on the brush.
Left time after time, such build up can interfere with the performance of the tool. If you feel inclined, you can also find specialized cleaners which remove hair care products from all hair styling devices.
How it's Different from Competitors
With this tool, the air blow speed and the temperature are both adjustable. The power switch and the control settings are located on the device. However, price wise, it is very similar to other ceramic, ionic hair styling products.
