    What were you using for products before, out of curiosity?

    PS, with the brush, you held the barrel end with your non-dominant hand, right, and kept pulling it through your hair two-handed?

    It is ridiculously huge, but it seems to be quick enough that your arms don’t get tired.

    Kerastase for the win! It’s the only heat protectant I’ve ever tried that I’ve noticed a difference in my hair when I use it, but it’s also the first time I’ve gone with a higher-end brand. I’m not sure it’s formulated to repair hair, so I’m not sure you’ll see any long-term improvements other than less breakage from heat styling.

    Has anyone ever taken biotin and noticed any positive changes to their hair or skin?

    Yes, I have a ton of new hair since I started taking biotin a year ago. You can tell by the length. Skin, no. But my eyebrow lady commented that my brows seemed fuller.

    Did it help your hair grow faster by chance? I cut my hair into a lob last fall and think it’s cute/have been maintaining it in that style, but miss having longer hair and feel impatient about waiting for it to grow. I already have thick hair, I just want it long again.

    I wouldn’t say I’ve noticed it’s grown faster, sorry 🙁 Just a significant amount more of it. And probably stronger.

    Eh, it’s just hair and my cut is cute and flattering. Every time I cut it short I miss having the length, but every time I have it long, I want something short and more effortless. Can’t win, haha.

    Honestly I was not using a heat protectant before. Tsk tsk I know ! For antinfrizz I used to love a product that was Sally’s knock off Bed Head “after party” which they discontinued a few years ago. The original Bed Head one works great but has a strong perfumey smell that made me and even my officemate get headaches. I also used Argan oil and Oribe smooth style serum. Thanks again !

    At first I was trying the brush 1 handed but then did the 2 hand thing you said. My non dominant hand slipped down once, OUCH. But that’s on my clumsy ass.

    Jumping in to say, after weeks of Kate badgering me to try the new blow dryer/brush, I bit the bullet and bought it yesterday. Spending $60 was killing me, since I had such good luck with the FIRST damn brush Kate recommended. Guys. This thing is a freaking game changer. My hair was dry and looking amazing in less than 15 minutes. Kate can attest that my hair is SUPER thick and VERY wavy/curly. The least amount of time I’ve been able to blow out my own hair with a hair dryer and brush was 30 minutes. And that included using a curling iron after to finish the ends. When I came downstairs after drying last night, my husband said, “Wow! Your hair looks great, babe!” It’s so sleek and polished with no frizz. I usually follow Kate’s advice when it comes to beauty products, but I won’t drag my feet anymore.

    P.S. I follow her regimen for clarifying shampoo once a week and using Oribe Supershine Moisterizer (or whatever it’s called), also. My hair looks amazing. I need to get a new masque though.

    I might have to try this brush. I’m lazier than ever in the hair styling department. When I want my hair to look like a good blow out, I have to dry it with a big round brush and set it with velcro rollers. I get tons of compliments on the results, especially when my hair is longer than it is now, but it takes about 30 minutes, and I no longer care about my hair enough to do this unless there’s an actual reason to. I’m curious to see if the brush would work on me. The hair at the crown of my head is a different, curlier, courser texture than the rest of my hair (weird?), and I judge products, techniques, and the skill of hairstylists by how well this section of my hair turns out.

    My hair has a wavy texture (2B I think) all over and is frizzy, and it’s not fine but there’s not a lot of it.

    Lianne’s is a lot thicker, wavy but maybe not as wavy as mine, and less frizzy.

    For both of us, this is a one-step deal, no need for rollers or irons after. It’s pretty amazing technology.
