WEN by Chaz Dean Signature Boar Bristle Medium Round Brush Duo
NOT WORTH THE MONEY!
I am a WEN girl and had hoped these hair brushes were special. They are not! You could buy the same type of brush in a drug store and not spend so much money.
For a lifelong comb user with the "tangliest" hair known to man, I've never been able to use a brush on my hair without it getting tangled up in my hair. Not with these brushes! They are great. Love them. Appreciate the duo.
Needs a couple improvements
I almost didn't order these brushes because of some of the reviews. But I'm glad I did. I noticed a difference in my hair after the first use. I have very curly, fine hair. I don't ever do a complete blow out but do my bang area and also my ends to minimize the frizz. This brush really does minimize the frizz and I notice my hair is shinier than when I use my usual ceramic round brush. But like others have noted the handle could use some redesign. Since I don't do a full blow out I'm not holding the brush for very long but my hand did get tired and it was uncomfortable. Now I understand what other reviewers were talking about. I think the handle needs a grip and it needs to be thicker. Fix that and it's a great brush and worth the purchase.
Replaces My Curling Iron
I tried these brushes, in an effort to get away from using a hot curling iron on my hair. Also, I have arthritis in my hands and had safety issues with the hot iron. I've had great results with these brushes and they smooth by hair beautifully. The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5, is the handle. With arthritis issues, it's hard for me to hold. They would work better for me if the handles were a little larger.
Not a boaring brush!
I have super curly shoulder length hair that I let air dry (I am currently using Italian Fig by the way). However, I use a hot iron on the bangs because I have a cow lick. I got the small brush a couple days ago. It is perfect. No hot iron. Sometimes I get carried away with the hot iron and straighten my bangs too much which just looks weird with my curly hair. The boar brush is does such a great job. I can control just how straight I want my bangs. Awesome.
I have had these brushes for over a year now and I love them. They never get caught in my hair. I have tried a couple other round brushes and all they do is tangle in my hair. These just glide right through and give my hair nice volume.
I am in LOVE with these brushes!
My hair is long with natural curl/frizz and I have been using a curling iron or Chi flat iron to straighten the length of it for several years now. Also the Instyler. To my horror a few months ago I began noticing broken hair every day on the counter top after straightening my hair! Even though I religiously use the Wen styling creme (love that stuff) it's just too much heat on my hair. I really didn't believe all the hype about these brushes because I've tried boar bristle brushes in the past and my hair had so much static that I looked like I'd stuck my finger in an electrical outlet lol. But, I was desperate. I got the large duo first and COULD NOT BELIEVE the difference in my hair the very first time I used them. I used all the same products as usual so I know it was the brushes. My hair has NEVER been glossy/shiny without using a flat iron, etc... on it. I have been using these for about 6 weeks now and I am soooo happy with how my hair looks! It's so shiney and bouncy now! The only thing I use a flat iron on now is my bangs and I do so sparingly because I'm trying to repair the damage. I'm really trying to use my Wen cleansing conditioner most days (honestly I can't afford to use it every day# and when I don't use the Wen, I use a hydrating shampoo #gasp, sorry Chaz#. Ojon is pretty good on my hair and I don't have to use so much so it lasts. Chaz I wish you could come up with a more economical cleansing conditioner for people who want to take care of their hair but can't afford expensive products, please pretty please??? Anyway, I have thinning hair due to thyroid issues #it's just thin on top# and I really try to baby it all I can. I have to say, my hair has never looked so bouncy and healthy and I'll be 47 this year! Having to struggle with my hair and having bad hair days really affects my self esteem. I use the Joan Rivers Great Hair Day powder to fill in the places where my scalp shows so badly. Thank goodness for that product as well! I actually am having alot of "good" hair days now lol. :# After I tried the large brushes #I really only need one but bought the duo so I never have to be without it and have one for a back up# I couldn't get the medium duo ordered fast enough! I use the large one the most but do use the medium for my bangs, and if I ever layer my hair I would use the medium size more. Chaz I would love to have an even larger brush than the ones offered now. As I'm drying my hair, I have to stretch my arms ALL the way out even with the large brush. Every time I use my brushes I get a little bit better at it. It only takes me 15 minutes to do all my hair with the large brush, which is only a few minutes longer than the old way I dried my hair #with a paddle brush# but when I did it that way, I had to also straighten it afterwards, so timewise it's the same and looks SOOOO much better/healthier. I have never colored or bleached my hair #it's a medium brownish redish with a little blondish and tiny bit of grayish lol# and I was amazed at how much these brushes, used in combination with good hair products, bring out the natural color and highlights in my hair! Honestly, if you're considering these brushes, just try them. Some have complained about the bristles falling out but I have had very few fall out of mine and that was only the first time or two. For how these brushes make my hair look, I would replace them every year if I had to! I have a very small round brush that I got in the 6th grade #1978# and I have used it #along with my family when I was growing up, there were 4 of us that used it daily# ever since. It's still in like new condition. Now I know that it's a boar bristle brush and can see the same quality in Chaz's brushes. Ladies your hair is worth the little investment of the right tools. Now that I've found the right styling tools I am just hoping my hair will thicken up since I'm trying to be dedicated about using the cleansing conditioner or really good hydrating shampoo. I will be so happy if it does. If you have thick hair, take care of it and be thankful because medications and illness can change it in the blink of an eye. Thank you Chaz for all your great products and putting your whole heart into giving us beautiful hair! :)
POOR QUALITY !
I ORDERED THESE MEDIUM BRUSHES . I WAS VERY SURPRISED THAT THEY WERE SO CHEAPLY MADE .. I HAVE THE LARGE SIZE BRUSH & THE QUALITY SEAMS TO BE SO MUCH BETTER .. THE MEDIUM BRUSH IS SO LIGHT WEIGHT & FLIMSY .. VERY SURPRISED FOR A WEN PRODUCT ,SO BACK THEY WENT!!
handle too small
Although the brush is OK I am giving it a 2 due to the fact that the handle is too small the way it curves and it is difficult to use.
I am returning it.
Best Round Brushes
I have been using these brushes for over a year and a half now & they are still my favorite and still look like new. I love how my hair glides through the brush and never gets caught. I have an A-Line haircut and so I blow my hair out almost every day. These two sizes are perfect for my hairstyle and give me just the right amount of volume. It took me awhile to get used to the shape of the handle & at first would make my thumb sore, but now it doesn't bother me as I'm used to it. I would love to see this round brush made into an even bigger size and then I would have my dream set.
I am not sure if I am keeping these. They are on the pricey side and would much prefer to have a medium and a large in a duo set rather than two of each. I received this as a gift from my daughter.
best of the best
This brush just glides. It gave my Hair shine and no frizz.
