I’ve seen some women at the gym with these devices that look like curling irons but they are also blow dryers. Maybe I’m living under a rock, but I’ve never seen those before!
Anyone use them? Do they dry as well as a blow dryer? Are they best for short hair?

do you mean like the ones that have a large round brush on the end but blow hot air too? If so then yes, I used to use mine all the time when i had long hair but i used to rough dry my hair first until almost dry then use it afterwards but my hair is thick

I totally had one when I had shorter layered hair. They were not as good at drying as styling IMO. Usually I ended up air-drying my hair for 20 mins before using it. If I didn’t do that, my hair would still be a little damp at the end. I really liked them for styling, they seemed to work better for my thick layered hair than regular curling irons.

I had one when I had shorter hair and loved it. It saved my arms from having to hold a curling brush and blow drier over my head for a half an hour.

ChocolateLime: Yeah! I kind of figured it might not dry as well as a blow dryer.
bleusteel: I did notice that the women using it had fairly short hair, so that makes sense!
tksjewelry: Yeah!! I always blow dry with a round brush, but it’s kind of a PITA.

I have shorter hair and recently bought the conair one. It made my hair look terrible, and doesn’t really dry at all. I returned it for a nicer hair dryer and large round hog hair brush

Oh I have one! Its literally the only thing that ill curl my hair, regardless what length it is. I find that it dries really well too. It was $30 at Shopper’s Drug Mart I think, I got it the night before grad because I really wanted curly hair and nothing else works.

Is it a curling iron or like a round brush that blow dries?
Like a PP, i spent ~$30 at Shopper’s Drug Mart, but on a round brush/blowdryer thing, not a curling iron. I still needed my blow dryer to dry most of my hair before using it, and styling using that thing was not nearly as nice as when I use a ceramic round brush and a thin nozzel on my blowdryer.
I have very long, thick hair though, so maybe that’s why my hair is high maintenance.

Those are great for short hair, but if you have medium to long hair, its a no go. I actually had to cut one of those thing out of my hair…….of course that was when I was a teenager and didn’t have any sense. I’m not sure if they make any big enough for long hair or not…..
