Promising review: “I love it! I have been using curling brushes for many, many years. I do not use curling irons because the curl comes out in 5 minutes every time. I have kind of thick, straight hair that does not hold curls well, and it is very difficult to get it to stay in the brush to get curled. I recently had 10″ cut off of the length, but it is still past my shoulders. I was looking for a little larger curling brush that would help me keep the hair in to get it curled. This Revlon Pro with the silicone bristles does the job! I was afraid my hair would stick to it and be difficult to deal with, but it did not get stuck at all.” —Buckeyemama
