Do you travel? I sometimes do and it is a chore to pack everything that you'll need while you're away. I like to pack light - I'm a less is more kind of gal. One thing that always sells me on a product is if it can be used multiple ways. I love to buy an all-in-one product and that's what I think of when I think of the Conair® You Style™ 2in1 Brush.
The Conair® You Style™ 2in1 Brush is unique in that it has a release button, which you use to change the shape of the brush. Shown below: The brush in its open position. However, push the button and fold the sides in and you have a styling brush that's more round and useful for styling your hair with a little curl with your hair dryer.
Even a lack of travel opportunities aside, why have a drawer full of brushes? Bathrooms are notoriously crowded and anything that cuts down on wasted space is a good thing in my book.
My husband and I use this brush and trust me, our hair is completely different. My husband uses it for a quick brush after showering, since his hair is extremely short. He just needs to ensure his wet hair dries in the right direction. Me, my hair is currently just past my shoulders and is thick. I need to do more to it than just the 5 second brush job that my husband gets away with! I use this brush on my long hair to smooth it straight.
The sides don't fold in completely though to make more of a sphere that you'd associate with a round styling brush. This is something I'd like to see improved. I'd like to see the sides close in little more to give it a more rounded look and feel for optimal styling.
I do think the brush is a bit big for me and I would also like to see it come in a smaller size.
Overall, I liked it! The Conair® You Style™ 2in1 Brush is available at mass market and drug stores around the country and is also available at www.conair-store.com for about $9.99.
