I’m always on the hunt for products that will help me get salon style hair at home. I often end up disappointed as my curly hair just doesn’t seem to respond well to cheap products or tools. However, I stumbled across the Babyliss New Big hair and I have fallen in love with it! It is a rotating heated brush that claims to dry your hair to a salon blow dry finish and I can assure you, it does exactly what it says on the tin! This picture is taken from the Babyliss website and shows the brush in great detail. The bristles are spread quite a good distance apart so my hair has never gotten tangled in them. The brush rotates two ways and has three heat settings: Cool, Warm and Hot. I can honestly say that this is one of the easiest hair tools I have ever used and I have thick, curly, waist length hair, so that is saying a lot! After one use, you have pretty much got the hang of using it and to dry my whole head of hair probably only takes 20 minutes, which is a revelation in my house! This brush retails for £45 and has two different sizes to choose from 50mm or 42mm. I have the 50mm as I like my curls to look big and smooth rather than tight. I can honestly say that this leaves the curl secret standing. I actually returned that as I felt it was not worth the money in the slightest! To say that that is £120 and this is £45, this is an absolute bargain of a product! It also comes with a 3 year guarantee though which is great to ensure you get the value for money that you want!
My Mum asked me to do her hair today as she is going on holiday, and I thought this was a perfect opportunity to show you what the Big Hair can do! Here’s what her hair is like naturally. The instructions recommend that, for the best results hair is about 80% dry when you come to use the tool. We just let our hair dry naturally to get it to this stage, its the easiest way!
I like to section the hair into three main sections so that I can then split each section into about 5 or 6 sections. Here’s a picture after the first section was complete:As you can see, her hair looks smooth and straight, yet with a slight loose curl at the bottom, which I love! There is no frizz and the hair feels incredibly soft after using this tool! It really does feel like you have come back from the hair salon! Finally, here’s a picture of the end result:I thought the end result looked great and mum was pretty pleased with it too! We sometimes like to put the hair in a low loose bun for about half an hour whilst it’s cooling off just to enhance the curls a bit more as we like our hair to be quite curly! I’m not going to go into how to use the product as there are some good YouTube videos out there and the instructions that come with the box are pretty good at helping you know how to get the best result.
Have you tried this before? Is this something you would like to try? Do you have any good recommendations for other hair tools I might like?
