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.

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.

RunnerBride13:  WARNING!!!!!!

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…..
