Does anyone else out there have a brush thief in their house? I totally do. Darah loves to play with my brush. And when I say play with, I mean take it to random places in the house. I don’t want to talk about how many times I have searched the house in vain only to pull my hair back in a ponytail because brushing it was literally not an option.
But now I have a whole new collection of brushes. Darah can go ahead and run off with one of them. In fact, when she does that, she can just help me decide how I want to style my hair based on which brushes she leaves me with!
Conair has a super cool new line of brushes that are designed to help you create a variety of looks with ease. My very favorite brush is the You Style. It is a 2-in-1 brush, which really means that it is a brush version of a Transformer. In its open, flat position you can use it for everyday brushes or for blow-drying your hair straight. But you can also push a button on the brush, and the sides collapse into a rounded shape, which is great for adding lift and soft, sexy waves (yes, I said sexy! It can happen, I promise!).
The second brush is called You Lift. T his brush doesn’t collapse, but can help you achieve a straight look without sacrificing volume. Yay! The edges of the barrel are able to get closer to the scalp for extra lift while the flat sides of the brush help straighten the hair. You can also use it like a round brush for smooth waves or curls.
Finally, we have You Curl. This brush is designed to create a very natural looking wave or tousled curl that is narrow at the hairline and wider at the bottom.
Each brush retails for $9.99 and can be found at retailers nationwide. They ,all work great, with just a bit of practice on your end (I got overzealous the first time I used the You Lift and got my hair just a tiny bit stuck…but I only made that mistake once!).
I cannot wait to get my hair cut this week (after 5 1/2 months…there, I admitted it). It is so long and heavy. I will be making most excellent use of these brushes with my new ‘do! Thanks, Conair, for creating such excellent brushes that help folks like me step away from the ponytail and embrace the fabulous hair that they really can have!
