Hey lovelies, you all know I'm still growing out my hair, I want a few more inches before I'm content with it, however this makes washing and blow drying my hair a nightmare. Blow drying takes forever, there's only so much work my Tangle Tamer will do. However my little life saver of the last few weeks? The Extra Large Head Hugger from Denman, retailing at £9.40.
Lucy's brush history
I've tried cheaper alternatives since deciding to grow my hair, they have been terrible. I could sit here and list many brands that you should avoid, if you have long, thick, misbehaving hair. These alternatives wouldn't grip, provided no volume or root lift.
What makes this brush so special?
The entire Head Huggers range contains Thermoceramic Technology. Denman have designed this brush so that the barrel of the brush is coated in ceramic, this dissipates heat across the surface area, enabling damage free styling and a smooth finish. The Extra Large brush is a whopping 53mm. This brush could do some damage if not used properly or to your visiting, 20 something brother who creeps up on you.
What does the design do?
It was the design of the brush that has always got me wanting to try out this range, I hadn't stumbled across any reviews of the range either, I still haven't now. The hourglass barrel is designed to stop hair from falling while in use because the ends are wider while the centre is narrow to give extra grip and control. Head Huggers 'hug' the contour of your head, where the bristles provide you with plenty of volume and root lift. The bristles are also crimped so they don't scratch your scalp like my cheaper alternatives did in the past.
How did I get on?
It took a few uses to get the hang of this brush and now I get the same result every time. I picked the biggest brush because my hairs getting longer and it's pretty thick. I'm glad I did, because I can imagine the smaller brushes wouldn't have worked so effective. The Head Hugger did everything it promises, I had smooth hair, full of volume and my hair didn't go fluffy the next day. It looks like it'd be heavy to use, it really isn't, for the size of the brush it's extremely light and the handle is so smooth to hold. Blow drying my hair is so simple with this brush, hair never slips off and if anything blow drying my hair has definitely got quicker.
