Very rarely do I get excited about a brush. I have used many variations over my lifetime and most all of them have gotten the job done, or so I thought.
Upon using the Olivia Garden brush the first time, I was in love!
So many brushes I have purchased they are made in multiple parts leaving gaps for your hair to get stuck. This brush is all one piece at the handle so no more tangles.
The other thing that I thought I needed was those balls at the end to protect my scalp. All they do is fall off in your hair. These bristles are amazing. They don't hurt my scalp and my hair passes through them without issue.
It has a ceramic coated barrel which warms and retains the heat for more body. The vent holes are also larger to allow for air to flow better than most brushes.
Another little perk, at the base, which I didn't capture in the photo, there is a metal knob. Well, if you pull it out, it has a pointed piece (point hides in the base) that when flipped around sticks back in allowing for point to separate your hair. BRILLIANT!
These brushes are a little more spendy. I got mine at Ulta for $19.99 but if you use the $3.50 off coupon and EBates, it really isn't that bad! Totally worth it in my opinion.
