    Comments about Chi Turbo Round Boar Brush:

    Finding a good round hairbrush that is functional and doesn't tear your hair out is a feat. This is my second purchase of this brush and I have bought several other brushes along with this one and have used along with those others and I have to say I always come back to this one. I have dropped it a lot and nothing happened to it.

      Comments about Chi Turbo Round Boar Brush:

      I would give this four stars for bristles and barrel, zero for handle/grip. I like to use a boar bristle brush for my medium length, wavy hair, but also wanted to add the benefits of a ceramic barrel and thought I had found it. The bristles are soft, yet effective at controlling hair from root to end. The barrel seems to provide thorough drying and heating. Unfortunately, my hair continually entangled in the rubber grip and I had to discontinue use. I am not a blow drying novice--have been blow drying my hair almost daily for over 30 years--and I could not find a way to use this brush without ripping my hair out. I still cannot figure out why this happened since I've not had this issue with any other round brush. So disappointing.

      Maybe I am just not good enough with the blowdryer, but this brush isn't better than nust running my fingers through.. I have frizzy hair so thought it might help, but no.

        Comments about Chi Turbo Round Boar Brush:

        It is a great brush until your hair gets trapt on the handle while you ate trying to dry it, and it pulls your hair "ouch". So, what I did? I created a best for the handle that cover it all, handsaw it on and problem solved. Now I like it 100%. So other than that the brush is great.

          Comments about Chi Turbo Round Boar Brush:

          Unfortunately the brush tangled my hair easily when trying to blow dry and brush the hair, and I could not use it with only one hand to grab the same amount of hair that I normally am able to grab with other brushes. I had high hopes as I love Chi products. My Conair brush that is similar, actually works so much better, for 1/2 the price. Unfortunately it did not work as hoped.

                        • Q:

                          I have curly, fine, long hair. I've been trying to figure out what is the best kind/brand of hair brush or comb for my hair? In most health and beauty magazines they say boar bristle brushes. Most of the brushes look like they would tangle my hair??

                            Due to the type and texture of your hair, we recommend to use a ceramic brush with nylon bristles rather than one with boar bristles. The boar bristles may tangle your hair and/or give you a straight result of a style with no body or volume. The boar bristle is most popular among stylists because it creates smoother looks and may give a longer lasting blowout. It really depends on what you want your finished style to be.

                            The best round brush to use for your particular hair type and texture would be a ceramic nylon bristle brush like CHI Turbo Round Nylon Brush. These will also give you a smooth and shiny look but with added volume:

                          Which size is recommended for long (about the middle of my shoulder blades) kind of wavey and kind of thin as far as the individual hairs themselves, but lots of them?

                            For long hair, we suggest the largest size brush: Large (1-1/2").
