As most of you know, I have been a huge fan of the “big-round-brush blowout” since I was about 18. During that transition I was doing as most girls do and straightening the crap out of my fat, coarse hair! To all of you who are unaware, that is TERRIBLE for your poor mane!!! I was lucky enough to work a reception position at a salon (for 2 months, about 6 hrs a wk) and become friends with one of the stylists. She saved my hair! Actually, that’s an understatement! I can’t imagine what my hair would look like to this day if I had not gotten off that bandwagon (trip to hair hell)! Anyways, she introduced ignorant me to the amazing habit of blow drying my hair straight and tossing out the straightener (‘scuse me, flat iron)! It made my hair shinier, smoother, more voluminous (like I need that) and just all around healthier and more beautiful! It doesn’t take any longer than the usual straightening regimen would and is so much better for your hair! Ok, so long story short, over these past 5 years I have created quite a collection of round brushes. I did some research and chose some of the better made ones (yes, it matters) and they have lived up to my highest expectations! I have them in a range of sizes (and colors), that are mostly large and larger. ANYWAYS! While I was out running errands today, I stumbled upon the MOTHER of round brushes! This sucker was just sitting there staring me in the face, and at $4…yeah, I HAD to have it! So I took it home (after purchasing it, of course) and decided to break it in. After I apologized to my other loyal brushes, I dove in! It usually takes my damp hair about 20-25 minutes to complete, but with this honking-of-a-brush, it only took like 10 minutes, tops! I was in brush — err, hair heaven! Best $4 I ever spent on my hair. And my lonnng hair thanks me!
Here lies my collection
my new brush is so HUGE, it has it’s own black hole! Approx 3 1/2 inches in diameter!
This is my new HUGE brush in comparison to my most recent “large” brush!
And IN FACT, my new HUGE brush is SO HUGE, my old “large” brush fits INSIDE of it!
And then of course we need some shots of my fab, fat hair!
The before is so horribly hideous I could not find a single photo of one, wink wink, but the least I could do is provide you with the convincing “after”!
That pose was dedicated especially for you, Mar! You have taught me well!
