I have had one of these for several years and it is still going strong. When my daughter used mine, she wanted one but I could not find them in any store. Thank God for Drugstore! I ended up ordering one as a spare for me because I never want to be without it.I have fine, thin hair and it adds body and a turn under at the ends. My daughter's hair is thicker and she wears it straighter but wants the body. It works great for both of us and she was so excited to receive it at Christmas.It doesn't get super hot so is not damaging to the hair shaft yet is hot enough to get the job done.I hope they never stop making these.

Unfortunately, this didn't work at all on my very fine, thin hair. The hard plastic teeth of the brush are placed too far apart and wouldn't hang on to my hair. I couldn't get my fine hair to stay wrapped around the barrel. My hair would just slip right off it when I tried to rotate the barrel to curl my hair around it. Furthermore, it killed what little body my hair has to begin with. There are so many good reviews of this product; I suspect it just isn't suitable for baby-fine hair like mine.

    When I purchased this, I needed a replacement for the curling brush I had. However, I didn't check the size of the barrel and this is 1/2inch bigger than the one I had. I didn't think it would work but decided to give it a try anyway. It was great! I'm glad I got a bigger one, now I know it's easier to use!

        I use this "brush" every day and it's never let me down. You can have super, hot heat or low heat, and it works well on hard-to-curl, thick hair. Can't find them anywhere, other than drugstore.com, so I'm buying two today. Always have to have a back-up. In my experience, using high heat in every circumstance, they last about two-to-three years, before having to be replaced. Mine is slowing down, so I'm replacing it before it totally dies. You cannot find anything better, anywhere, for the price! I recommend!!

          Since there are so many positive reviews, I can only imagine that this only works for certain hair types, mine unfortunately not being one of those types. I have fine hair but a lot of it and it is pretty long. I wash my hair at night and when I wake up in the morning it is unevenly wavy. I was just looking for an quick easy way to make it look nice and smooth. However, this just did absolutely nothing for my hair. Really no other way to say it....just didn't do anything at all. Better luck to you if you decide to buy it.

          I use this curling brush every day. I have shorter hair, but it gives me just the right amount of curl and volume. The end of the brush stays cool enough, so that I don't burn my fingers. The brush heats up very quickly. This is the second one I've ordered. I wish they lasted longer. I've had the other one for a little over a year. Drugstore.com is the only place that I've been able to find this brush, and the price is right.

            I hunted everywhere for a replacement when my curling iron (identical to this one) finally died of old age (had it 10+ years). It gives my fine hair just the right amount of lift at the roots without burning my hair or scalp -- the many selections help you find just the right setting for your type of hair. Gives me natural looking body without the usual curling iron "crimp" with other models.

                I saw all the positive reviews for this thing and thought - seriously? It's a curling iron. But I was curious. And how wrong I was. Best curling iron ever. So easy to use. No crimping like you get with a regular curling iron. It gets super hot and removes the overnight kinks from my icky coarse hair. I love how you just roll it through your hair. I love it so much I bought some more as Christmas presents.

                  I wanted a curling brush that would add volume without tight curl-this is it! It's super easy and quick to use and I've gotten compliments on my hair since I've been using it. My hair is just below my shoulders and is fine and straight with long layers. With a little product and the right technique-my hair is fuller at the crown now.

                    I have long hair and I gently turn the ends under with this hot brush. Hair shines and curls flow gently and no frizz! I am limited in mobility and find this tool to be very good if you are challenged.

                      I use this after blow drying my hair to calm down any frizz and give my hair a bit of shine. I have shortish hair and should have gotten a smaller size.
