Hair week continues!
I was kindly contacted by Big Daddy Beauty, and they offered to send me a hair brush to review. I can never say no to a free hair brush since really good ones can be pretty pricey. The lovely customer service respresentative asked me for my hair type, and I gladly told her that it was quite thick, curly, prone to frizz, but love to straighten it. As a result, Big Daddy sent me the Spornette Porcupine Hair Brush.
Without even noticing, for many years I have been using the Prego 277 Brush from Spornette and love it! I have to be honest and say that I love the brush Big Daddy sent me just as much, and I attribute that to the brand's fantastic quality. As I mentioned, I have no patience for my hair and being it is so thick, I need the styling process to be easy. I was a little concerned about this brush's natural wooden handle, as I am so used to a non-slip foam grip, but it actually was quite managable. I have had a lot of round brushes in the past that have broken on me because the handle and the brush piece itself were different pieces. I love that this product is in one piece, therefore making it difficult to break with my thick hair.
This brush has long and thick boar and nylon bristles that makes sure to get deep into the hair, especially when wet. The brush I currently use has shorter bristles, so the Spornette Porcupine brush worked nicely, as the nylon bristles ensure a decent grasp into the hair and the boar bristles makes it smooth. Both of these bristles together enables even distribution of the natural oils throughout your hair to create a beautiful shine. Some say that it is very important to use a hair brush with natrual bristles because they do less damage to the hair.
The brush that they sent me has a 3.5 diameter, but Big Daddy carries the 1.75 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch round brush. If you were wondering what size brush to get, the smaller the diameter of the brush, the more lift and volume it provides.
A good hair brush, especially a round one, can be hard to find, but this brand was named in both InStyle Magazine in 2010 and Allure Magazine in 2011. So it has to be good right? My only issue, is that at times, it causes a little static. Not much...but a little. My hair tends to do that sometimes, depending on the temperature, enviornment, etc, but it was nothing that I couldn't manage. In the end, my hair styled beautifully and I was very happy with the product. I like this brand so much, that I may have to head to Big Daddy Beauty and buy the Spornette Zhu Bamboo Paddle Brush with the Tourmaline Nylon Bristles.
So, is this my new favorite brush to use when I blow dry my hair...it may be! If you are interested in trying Spornette Brushes, be sure to check out Big Daddy Beauty, as they are Spornette's #1 seller, and have great prices and fantastic customer service.
