Problems with Some Rotating Hot Air Brushes
“Over the years, I’ve tried my hand at several rotating hot air brush tools, only to return over and over again to the tried and tested models. Here are some models that are better left on the shelf” sais Kathy:
1. Revo Super Styler. This one has a very high price, as compared to Conair BC178 InfinitiPro for instance. Also, based from the customer reviews, it’s very difficult to use, because even with instructions, there are still so many technicalities about it.
2.IGIA Rollo Style. Customers consider this as a waste of money. Based from their feedbacks, this product doesn’t really braid the hair as opposed to what’s seen on TV. Instead, it twists the hair and tangles it.
3.Conair Pro Styling and Volume Battery-Operated Brush. The problem of this product lies on the softness of its bristles. Its bristles get caught on the hair and intertwine it. An ordinary hairbrush might even work better, customers say.
