Rated 4.04 out of 5 stars
I've never had much luck with round brushes - they never seemed to have a balance between gripping my hair enough and not being to grippy as to get stuck. I recently read a tip that if the brush tangles up on you to easily, you probably need to go to a larger diameter brush. I bought a larger 3" brush, which helped some, but I still couldn't get a good grip with the nylon bristles (Chi brand). The mixed bristles on this brush give just enough grip that I can hold the hair taught but slide it through smoothly for a great blow out. I also like the feel of the handle and find the brush well balanced in my hand. I used it for the first time today, and I cannot stop touching my hair. It's the first time I've achieved a really good, silky smooth blowout on my own. Sweet sweet success, and I owe it to this brush.
I do like the pick in the end of the handle (you pull it out, flip it around and stick it into the end of the handle to use it) - but I had to dig through the brushes on display in store to find one where the pick didn't slide out of the handle too easily. Not a deal killer, and you could probably use clear nail polish on the base of the pick to thicken it up so it'd hold better.
I chose this brush as my free award because it was newly added to the rewards list. Unfortunately my choice was a poor one. The moment I put it in my hair it tangled up. I repeatedly tried to use it (as I do my other round ion brush) to dry the ends of my hair, but no matter how dry or wet my hair was it never went smoothly through my hair. Every stroke tangled my hair and even broke some strands. I would not recommend this item.

When drying my hair and trying to style it with this brush my hair kept getting tangled.

I use the brush when I blow dry my hair. It is a time saver and definitely helps with the frizz and adds volume

Ergo friendly. Easy to hold and glides through hair without pulling or tangling. Soft tips on end is gentle on scalp. Nice size for long hair to finish drying and styling fast.

The combination of ion and boar bristles does not work for frizzy hair. I wish they would make the same brush with only boar bristles again.

Works well on wet or dry hair.

Great quality hairbrush for fine frizzy hair...a bit on the pricey side. I plan to get my money's worth over the next few years.

This is my third brush for this style, and I have bought almost every Olivia Garden brush there is. It's a great product. Very light weight. They can't make a bad hair brush. Highly recommend.

I don't know how anyone could use this brush to blow out their hair. I have been using round brushes to straighten my curly hair for 20 years and I'm quite good at it. I've never had a brush tangle in my hair like this one did. I couldn't even do my bangs which are pretty short. As soon as I'd try start straightening after rough drying my hair it would immediately tangle and I had to unwrap the hair and in the process some got pulled out. I gave up pretty quickly. Don't waste your time with this one.

I have frizzy wavy hair that seems to slip through every other round brush. Not this one!
McKay from Saint Joseph, MO
This brush makes my hair so much more manageable with less frizz and adds a silky texture.
Busy gal from Michigan
This brush works great to quickly dry, smooth and straighten my thick shoulder length hair. I have a drawer full of this size round brushes but this one is the best brush I've ever found! It's easy to use and the vents help dry quickly while the ceramic-ionic surface smooths.

A number of years ago, I bought this same style of brush and it has lasted until now!
Cindy from Wilton ny
This brush makes my hair come out so smooth. I have tried a lot of brushes and this one is awesome!
Mon from NY
Love this brush! I have naturally curly hair and used to have a wooden boar bristle brush but it didn't seem to have enough grip to keep my hair taut and nylon ones just don't get along with my hair type. This one has worked perfectly to give me a smooth blow out. The venting helps for a quick-dry and the combination of the boar bristles and pins really let me eliminate frizz and minimize having to use styling tools after. So impressed with this brush!!!
vjbostwick from GA
I used to have to blow dry and then straighten my hair to get rid of frizz and random fly always. This brush has completely eliminated that step for me! I have fine hair but A LOT of it. This brush is perfect for me.

Love these round brushes for styling. Bought this to replace the exact same brush I've had for 3 years.
Nicole from Honolulu, HI
This is the brush I've been searching for my entire life. It the perfect combination of a paddle and a round brush. It smooths my hair perfectly.
Leena from Charlotte,
It's light, love the idea of having two kinds of bristles. It made my hair straight for couple of days and some shine as well. I like it

This brush is not a good hair brush. It gets tangled up in my hair and is difficult to get untangled.
Sharon from Virginia
I have this brush and it doesn't work well at all for fine, wavy hair.
Maybe Katie from Omaha
This brush, for me, is great for fine hair & volume.
However, it seems to be very popular & not easy to find in stock.
