I have a thick head of hair, which I used to have thinned whenever I got a trim, making it manageable to wear down as long as I used a flat iron.
My hair stylist here is staunchly against thinning hair and ignores my pleas to get out the razor.
After having the best blowout ever, I sacked up and bought a round ceramic brush made of boar bristles. Surprisingly inexpensive and I haven’t used a flat iron in nearly a week. A WEEK!
I’m never going back. Start your search on Amazon.
Note: Beware of brushes with uber soft rubber handles. It can pull hair when drying. Ouch.
