I had a hunch this brush would give me a nice amount of control as I grown out my bangs to give a new look to my now thirty-five year old hair style. So I am using all new products and new brushes. When my hair was short, short, short I just used my fingers to comb it out and that was that after a vigorous rub with my towel first. But now I blot my hair with my thick towel and use this brush with the tiny teezer brush to get my hair dry and in all the right directions for my hair style. Who says sixty is the new thirty--I agree and I just hit it.
