I have a bit of trouble with my arms and shoulders so wanted to buy something that would help me be able to style my hair a bit easier than the old way of holding up a hair drier and having a brush in the other hand. A good few years ago I used to have a hot brush which used to do my hair really nicely so I had some Amazon vouchers to use up and thought I would treat myself to a new one.
I saw the Vidal Sassoon vsha6471 one on there going for £12.97 and thought it would be a good make so bought it. The write up said it has two settings and it has a tangle free release on it.
The hot brush came and on opening I found there were two different end bits to put on, both brushes but different sizes. The larger one it said was for medium hair and the smaller one for shorter styles. Seeing that my hair is quite short I decided to use the smaller brush. I washed my hair and gave it a good dry with the towel then started using the brush to style the top.
The first thing I noticed was that the air blowing out of it was not very fast although there are two settings on it and I had it on the highest setting. This meant it was taking for ever to dry my hair using it so I turned it off and got the hair drier and gave my hair a boost with that first then tried it again with the hot brush. By now my hair was getting a bit drier and I couldn't get it to curl round the brush so I dampened it down a little bit but again it just didn't seem to be doing anything to my hair. I finished drying it though which took me about 45 minutes all in all, in fact I ended up having to get my other half to try to do the back as my arms were aching like mad by this time. So much for making things easier.
I tried using the brush a couple more times after, one time I just tried using it on the sides a couple of days after I had washed and styled it and the sides had gone a bit haywire so I dampened them down a bit with a spray and tried to do them then but still found it wasn't doing it how I wanted, there just didn't seem to be enough power in the thing to get the hair dry quick enough.
The brush is now back in the box and I don't know if it will get used again unless someone comes who wants to borrow it. I am glad it was only £12 odd to buy and not expensive.
