Babyliss Cordless Hot Brush: Any Good Ones?

OK, here’s something I was expecting to hate but ended up loving: the Babyliss Cordless Hot Brush. I realized, through a bit of self-diagnosis (basically just me staring out the window for a while, contemplating stuff) that the reason I disliked this thing immediately was because it had a lot All had short, completely stiff hair. It reminded me of those little brushes you used to do hairdressing on the plastic, tangled hairs of mannequin heads in the eighties, and it also reminded me of a certain type of mascara wand that I love very much. do not like it.

So yeah, I judged this particular book by its cover. (I don’t mind admitting that I judge almost every single beauty and grooming product by its proverbial cover, because products are not people and cannot be offended and therefore on the “moral transgressions” scale.) It’s very good.)

But how wrong I was. It has stiff bristles to slide and glide through the hair so that nothing gets tangled and it makes the whole process, if you’re just smoothing everything out as I was, effortless and fast. I had no idea what the Babyliss Cordless Hot Brush was supposed to do because I didn’t do any research before turning it on, but I started brushing my hair with it and it was instantly sleek. I then decided to mix things up a bit and brushed it under like hairdressers do, rotating the brush as I went, and it gave a bit of volume through the lengths and then a rounded-under finish . A very sleek, luxurious, expensive looking long bob.

I realize that in the age of “gadgets need to do more than one thing” this isn’t the most all-singing-and-dancing child appliance; It doesn’t use air like the Dyson things and it you can’t do fancy twists and turns with it like you can with a pair of straighteners (I mean I don’t Thinking You can … again: haven’t read the instructions) But for me, it’s an absolute godsend. Because I have that particular length of hair that looks excellent styled but if I don’t do anything with it it makes me look like a medieval lute player. And most of the time I can’t be bothered to actually do anything with it. The Babyliss Cordless Hot Brush offers me a “midway effort option” of sorts: brushing through three minutes, wearing silly heatproof gloves because I might burn myself anything, and my hair looks a little more…purposeful. Like it’s actually in a style. With all the hair pointed in one direction and kicked down and some makeup thrown on my face, I can get away with looking like I’ve put on a hell of a lot more effort than I actually put in.

So there: Change of mind on this one. I tried it straight out of the box, but in just three or four minutes it had become a hair tool, which might just persuade me to keep my hair at that length. I don’t find it too heavy, although I’ve just looked at some reviews and some others do – it’s not the kind of tool you have to keep in a perfectly still position for ages (like a stick) but Anyway, I didn’t find it particularly cumbersome. Especially because it doesn’t have any cords – cords usually cause me all kinds of grief.

On a more practical note, it takes about three hours to charge for forty minutes of use at max heat. Again, not a problem for me – it took seven minutes to do my whole head twice at max power and it’s not at all difficult to charge. i’m not sure Where Sure I’ll take it requiring the cordless style but good to know there’s an option!
