I'm back with another hair post. Today I'll be reviewing an essential for those who love a good blow dry - the boar bristle brush.
I have thick, semi-straight hair that honestly doesn't look quite right unless I blow it out. I used to use paddle brushes but my hair game totally changed when I discovered the boar bristle brush.
BrushLove sent me the their newest BrushLab Thermal Round Hair Brush to try out.

My Hair Routine
I usually only wash my hair 2 maybe three times a week and use a dry shampoo in between. This might sound gross, but it really helps preserve my hair. It doesn't dry out as much and my hair color lasts longer. When I do wash my hair, I let it air dry about 80% and then I like to give myself a good blow out. By doing so, I give my hair a lot of body and it helps last the 3-4 days until I wash it again.
I wanted to see how the BrushLab Thermal Round Hair Brush would fit into my routine. I'm actually pretty picky about the round brushes I use to get a good blow out so you can bet that this review will be unyielding.
First off, I'm loving the design of the brush. It has a super cute, hot pink handle that is rubberized. This makes a huge difference when blow drying. Your hands don't slip and it's easier to get more control over the brush. I picked the largest size, 3 inches, because my hair is on the long and thick side. It also comes in different sizes for other hair lengths.
As soon as I used it I noticed that this bad boy really grips your hair! If you have problems with your hair slipping from a brush during blow outs, you will not have an issue with this. I think the bristles are cut in a way so that they really latch onto your locks. This is a bit different from my Chi Round brush which is a little easier to pull through. Because it really grips on, I like using the BrushLab Brush for more straighter styles of blow outs. It helps to move this brush in a downwards position so it's easier to pull through the hair, I then curl it under for a nice, bouncey finish.
-rubberized handle makes the brush easy to grip
