    Excellent-despite The Short Comings
    I've been using this brush since they first came out. All of the criticism about them overheating and turning off after several minutes of use is completely accurate. It's a bit annoying but I don't mind just leaving the thing on to avoid the problem. I wash my hair every other day. (Read: the brush gets used a lot because my hair is thick, coarse and it takes a while to style it.) They will last a few years but they absolutely have a limited lifespan and they are going stop working entirely after several years of use. Even with me leaving the motor continually running as I do during the entire time I am styling it, these last at least 3 years. This brush is not meant to be used on soaking wet hair, particularly if your hair is thick like mine. You need to partially dry you hair and use it as a styling tool. Putting aside all those comments, I still could not live without this item. I usually buy them 2 at time at the cheapest price I can find on the Internet. (Folicas price is great.) I try to get free shipping and avoid taxes. Ladies..the cost of this brush is under $30! It's not exactly a disposable item but it's not a lifetime purchase either! It definitely has a shelf life. I think that 3 years is pretty good in the worth what paid for equation. The thing that makes the Helen of Troy Hot Air Brush so excellent is not only the ease of use as compared to a regular brush and hair dryer; it's the fact that it is very gentle on your hair. I am not frying/drying my hair on a continual bases with 1500 to 1800 watts of turbo power, which when your hair is color treated and prone to dryness like mine, is a blessing. While I do use a flat iron, I use it minimally and only on the areas that I absolutely need it like my bangs. I dearly wish that after all these years Helen of Troy would put a better motor in the thing. I would happily pay more for a higher quality product in terms of design. However if your primary goal is easy styling and healthy hair that will be far less prone to dryness and split ends AND you can live with the brush's short comings, you aren't going to get a better result with any product out there.

    Great Product
    I have had this product for more than 3 years. I have fine straight hair and it works so well. Recently it heats up before I finish (I assume this to be a safety feature) and so I want a second to use as a backup. I have not been able to find this product in a shop. Thank you for offering it on line.I would recommmend this Hot Air Brush to anyone. Its great.

    Love Mine, But...
    ...unfortunately it does overheat TOO quickly! I have thin hair, and blow dry my hair about 80% dry with a regular hair dryer. I then section my hair off and finish it with my Helen of Troy Hot Air Brush. It works great until Im about half-way done. Then it wont turn on again. I have to wait a bit for it to cool and eventually it turns out.Maybe I just need another as a "backup". I really have no complaints other than it overheats too quickly/easily.

    Great Styling, But Short Life Span>>>
    This is a great styling tool, however, after using it moderately for only 6 months it ceased working. Hopefully, the manufacturer will re-design this styler in order to increase its functional time span.

    Great Work Until It Melts...
    I have had three of these, so far, and love to use them. Its easy to use and easy on my hair but, two have already melted on my hair. Thats not a perfected product. It must have a flaw in the heat element.

    Usefulness
    This product would be perfect IF:(1) it had enough wattage to actually dry hair,(2) the brush could be removed for drying, and(3) it had a longer life-span.As it is, I would not recommend it to potential buyers.

    Motor Burns Out After Only 6 Months
    I just want to report that I, too, love what this tool does for my hair (thin, straight), but the quality of the tools inner parts must be poor, because the tool burns out after 6 months of everyday use. I partially dry my hair first with a blow-dryer. Hot-air brushes are hard to find. I wish the manufacturer would address this short-life problem.

    It Dies So Fast.
    Ive gone thru this 4 times. My stylist recommended me this, cos its non drying and healthier for your hair. Especially if you have thin, fine, straight, flat hair like me. Its pretty good for creating natural wavy look. But it dies so fast. If you use this almost everyday, it will gives you about 3 or 4 months life span. It will shuts off by itself, and then on again after 5 minutes and works for 2 minutes, stop again. Soon, it dies forever. ANNOYING!!!

    Great Styling, Poor Quality
    Its hard to give this a rating. Styling wise, this is the best hot air brush I have used. It dries my hair fast and my hair has great body. Also, I my hair doesnt get damaged the way it did when I used a standard blow dryer and brush. However, as others have noted, it doesnt last but a few months! I have gone through 4 in the last year and a half. They only last 4-6 months. Now, I have short hair and it only takes at most 10 minutes to do so it isnt like Im using for 1/2 hour+ a day. It starts by shutting off after a few minutes then just stops turning on altogether. But, it does a fantastic job styling...

    Styling, Not Drying
    For those who complain that it takes forever for them to dry their hair with this product, I dont think hot air brushes are for going from wet to dry. Ive been using them for years, and I blow my hair semi-dry quickly with my regular dryer, and then finish styling with this brush. It works fabulously well, and is so much easier than a curling iron for getting a nice, soft style.
