Nicky Clarke 'Frizz Control NHA045' blow dry styler
After using my Babyliss hot air styler for many years, I decided that it was time to buy a newer model, unfortunately they do not seem to manufacture a similar model so I decided to buy this one.
I am now repacking this back in the box to return to store after one use as I found it incredibly difficult to manage. I have fine hair in a bob, the bristles on the smaller brush are very stiff and manage to drag and tangle my hair. Whereas the larger brush the bristles are to soft and do not seem to grip my hair at all.
The heating unit itself is very heavy and you can't even manage to rotate it properly as the heat switch gets in the way.
I found this really difficult to use,the barrel is really chunky so it's really difficult to turn I dropped it several times! It also gets really hot,too hot to use really.
A disappointing buy.
It would have been nice had Nicky Clarke given instructions for use of his hot brushetc. I have longish bobbed hair and I normally blow dry using a vent brush.I found trying to blow dry using his hot brush was difficult because one cannot take the brush out of hair curled at the top to achieve volume, without having to drag it to the hair end which tends to turn the hair in the wrong direction, (outwards rather than inwards.) It needs a button to draw in the bristles so that it can be removed keeping the volume. I havent tried the other attachments yet as it was the volume hot brush that attracted me. I also find the brush and handle get extremely hot and one could very easily burn oneself.
The whole package needs instructions for use - one is into `discovery learning.' I am too busy to mess about like this. A disappointing buy at full price -no discounts allowed on this product!
Works for me!
I have fine, very curley/frizzy long hair. In order to tame it I need something that gets hot enough, which many don't. This does and works great on my hair. My only worry is that it will be discontinued and my search for something that works on my hair will continue, yet again!
dont waste your money
2nd purchase of this item first one i had used 8 times and it broke.
Recieved a new one and on my 2nd usage it just stopped working again!!!
Will have to return back to store.
I had a similar Nicky Clarke Air dryer to this years ago well i bought 5 in all, as i loved the way it made my hair feel and look but they only seemed to last a few months but this is by far the worst air dryer i've bought x Very dissapointed.
My 2nd one!
I am about to purchase this air styler again as I accidentally dropped my last one (which I have had for a couple of years!). Am glad to see it is now in pretty purple! This airstyler gives my bobbed fine hair great volume. I always take it on holiday and use it instead of a hairdryer. Only fault is it doesnt have a cool shot but otherwise I love it!
