*AD – I was sent the Babyliss Big Hair Care for the purpose of this review
I’ve often written about how I tame my frizzy mane, and I couldn’t wait to get stuck into this Babyliss Big Hair Care review. You to see how to dry, volumise and style all at once! Check out the Babyliss Big Hair before and after results below!
This story of how I went from the frizzball on the left, to the smooth-haired (slightly vacant looking) goddess on the right is in collaboration with Mumsnet and BaByliss.
Babyliss Big Hair Care Review (50mm Barrel)
I must confess, I have a previous model of BaByliss big hair hot brush, which is pretty good. The bristles were a little stiff, and I occasionally ended up in a tangle from setting the rotation in the wrong direction. I was worried I’d do the same with the new product and completely embarrass myself in this review.
Luckily that wasn’t the the case. Thanks to the new BaByliss Big Hair Care design, that was never going to happen!
BaByliss Big Hair Care Rotating Brush Review
The bristles on BaByliss’ new product are super soft, meaning you’ll never get in a tangle. Trust me, if anyone would get tangled, it’d be me – and I didn’t, so you’re safe! I managed to rotate halfway up my hair in one direction, then press the wrong button and rotate the other way. Thankfully, because the bristles are so soft, I was able to slip my hair out easily.
The 50mm barrel gives your hair plenty of bounce. You can use it in a fixed position if you want, but I much preferred the automatic rotation of the barrel. There are two arrow buttons on the handle that turn the barrel rotation on. You can choose from clockwise or anti-clockwise to curl your hair inwards or flick it out.
Three heat settings are also on the handle (two warm and one cool). On the previous model I own, I found the hottest setting would feel a little too hot around my neck area if I had it switched on for a while. The new Babyliss big hair hot brush doesn’t overheat. Even the hottest temperature is manageable.
Babyliss Big Hair Care Review – How I got on
My hair didn’t frizz at all, even though it was exposed to heat for quite some time. The brush left it smooth and bouncy, which is not something I’ve been able to achieve from a home blow-dry before. I usually end up using further products and equipment when my hair is completely dry to smooth it and calm the frizziness. I’m guessing this must be due to the ionic frizz control the product description boasts.
I was really impressed with the end results.
How to use the BaByliss Big Hair Care 50mm Barrel Styling Brush
If you’ve got a lot of thick hair like me, I’d suggest using this hot brush when you hair is already about 70% dry, otherwise it’ll take a while to dry completely.
Section off your hair with clips and style one section at a time. Put the BaByliss Big Hair Care brush at the bottom of the section of hair and use the buttons with arrows on to wind you hair up around the barrel.
Once your hair is tightly wound around the barrel, hold for about 20 seconds or until that section is completely dry. Unwind your hair by using the opposite arrow then brush through with the hot brush still on. Repeat all over your head until your blow dry is complete.
This is an incredibly easy way to give yourself a salon-style blow dry. Your arms don’t get tired from having to hold your hairdryer and brush in odd positions. The BaByliss Big Hair Care hot brush has given me one of the easiest and best home blow dry I’ve ever had. I’m completely in love and it means I’ll probably be wearing my hair straight a lot more. Who wouldn’t, with such a low chance of frizz?
