Rated 5 out of 5 by Mimijojo Brilliant product
This is a fantastic product if you have frizzy hair. It is very smoothing and in most cases you can get away without using straightening irons. If you can't get the hang of it after the first couple of goes, it is really worth persevering. I can't live without it. The only downside is that, having just ordered my third styler, they only seem to have a lifespan of about 18 months.However, the product is guaranteed by Babyliss for two years, though I've never .bothered to send mine back - I've just ordered a new one (a bit like you would with an electric toothbrush).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Teddybe4r Great for first couple of uses - then brush splays
As my title says, this brush would be SUPERB if Babyliss take a serious look at - and re-vamp the brush bristle problem.
I'm on my second one of these. They are great for the first couple of uses, that is, BEFORE the brush bristles start to splay out (old toothbrush look comes to mind here). When new, the brush glides THROUGH the hair, but with the "splayed" bristles, my hair just sits ON TOP of the brush, so I don't get a good effect. It's the heat from the device, and pressure on the brush from hair that the bristles can't cope with, so they splay out at the tips.
Until Babyliss improve the bristle issue, and advertise this has been done, I will not purchase another one.
Shame really......a SUPERB device, spoilt by splaying brush tips. QVC are giving a great price for this item, so I am disappointed that Babyliss have not improved the bristles (they are the same as those on the older model I have).
IF Babyliss improve the brush, there's not much out there to beat it, as it CAN style the hair beautifully, giving shine and volume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladykate2 Excellent
I had the original big brush for many years before motor started to slow down which gave me perfect excuse to buy the dual brush. I have very long thick hair and this is perfect for me. I let my hair dry to 80% then finish off with my big brush. I use large barrell for longest layers then smaller barrell for rest of hair... i can achieve great crown and side lift and using just halfway down strands acheive a soft wave. Also gives great smoothness and shine.I have a cuboard full of styiling tools but my big brush is the one i can't be without.. really don't comprehend the negative feedback as this is truly worth giving a go.. nothing to lose with qvc 30 day money back guarantee... but once you discover all this can do loike me i reckon you will treasure it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheTheatreFox Another excellent Babyliss Big Hair product
I discovered the Babyliss dual brush Big Hair as a TSV two years ago. I have 'Monica' hair that just loves a British winter or humid weather to frizz and do everything you don't want to. Everyone at my hairdressers can't believe how much the condition of my hair has improved since I purchased it - with my hairdresser saying that I can get much better root lift than she can.
When I saw the updated product I had to try as I'm always in fear that my original one will die unexpectedly.
I have been using the updated version for a month and I'm equally happy with the results, the key difference seems to be that the place grips the hair more resulting in an even smoother finish. I can now rest easy that I have the new one and the back up for travel etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Elegance Very Poor Performance!
So disappointed with this product. I bought it to replace the original "Big Hair" I've had for a few years that sadly died on me a couple of weeks ago. I assumed this to be an improved, ramped up version of the original & was excited to use it on my medium thick, below shoulder length hair. However, the performance of this product doesn't come anywhere near! The brush will only rotate with a very light piece of hair, otherwise it stops, it's not getting hot enough, it leaves my hair full of static. I absolutely loved the original, it was my everyday hair styling tool & I always received compliments on my hair styling. Why did Babyliss change the product so radically? Other reviewers appear to be of the same opinion, I'll be returning this item for a refund, annoyed that I'll have to pay return postage, which is substantial…

I used this item about twice a week for ten months before it broke. No couldn't recommend it in so good faith. Buyer beware.

Rated 1 out of 5 by chloecat worst purchase
Handle hard to hold as to big. No good if your hair has layers. It would not even grip my fringe the brush is very soft.
