5All the Heat Ya NeedDec 17, 2008
By Pamela Bagatti
I purchased a "cheap" Conair hot air brush and returned it promptly. The hot air was lukewarm at best, and it was substandard.

This unit gives great hot air, it dries my hair very quickly, thoroughly and easily as it says, and does a good job. The curls it produces seem to last for the entire day. I have fine, straight hair which is easy to dry but difficult for the style to stay.

I do wish it were a bit more compact. It seems slightly bulky to hold but this would not stop me from recommending it or purchasing it again.

4Not perfect, but still recommendedMay 27, 2009
By Lorna D.
Using the Wigo Hot Air Brush is awkward at first. It's heavier than some of the other hot air brushes and the smooth plastic bristles don't grip the hair particularly well. It gets quite hot; you can change the heat with the cool shot button - not convenient but doable. The "low" setting controls the blower, not the heat.

There was a problem with the first unit I bought; after only a week of use, I retracted the bristles and they never came out again, no matter how much I pressed the release. I exchanged it and haven't had a problem with the second one.

Despite the drawbacks, I've had good results and unsolicited complements. I get a nice, smooth blow dry with some fun shaping. It also works on dry hair for touch ups.

DECEMBER 2011: The Wigo Hot Air Brush is no longer available but it's identical to HOT TOOLS HOT AIR BRUSH 1079.

5Heavy but does what it saysJun 01, 2009
By Deb Hornbacher
Everyone says this product was heavy and awkward and they are right and it would be nice if the company could address that. But it is well worth getting used to using it. I have fine thin hair and it damages easily plus it is difficult to curl and stay that way. But this has the cool down setting that you can flip while your hair is drying that allows your hair to look like you set it on rollers if you want to take the extra time. The hair release works wonderful, doesn't snarl your hair and works well to remove any hair that has built up while you have used your curling iron in the past. Would buy again and will be recommending this to others.

5I love this brush.Jan 20, 2009
By Allya
This hot air brush has everything I was looking for. It's ionic, it doesn't use those boar bristles, the vents are at the base of the brush to avoid "sucking hair" into the intake, the bristles retract, and it pumps out a lot of heat. My last one was damaged by the baggage handlers at the airport so I've just purchased my second one. I would highly recommend this brush.

5So far, the best 1 1/4"Apr 28, 2009
By D. Fiorina
It's very difficult to find a 1 1/4" hot air brush. It's the perfect size for my very fine hair. I have been using the Conair one for years. Conair has changed from all soft bristles, to all hard plastic, and now a combination. Historically, I have found that having all soft bristles works better with my hair because it holds onto them and I have control. The Ceramic Tools (Baby Bliss) model ct21000 has all soft bristles. I bought both that one and the Wigo wg5120 (which has all stiff plastic bristles). I'm still working with both to figure out which one I like best, but so far it seems that they are both great depending on the style you are trying to achieve. Some of the really nice things about the Wigo are: 1. Since the bristles retract, you can get a really nice curl with out stretching it out while you unwind the brush. 2. the cool shot helps set the curl even more before you release it. So far, the hard plastic bristles seem to be ok, but I actually sometimes get too much of a curl! The Baby Bliss model gets super hot, super fast. The super fast part is great, but I have to be really careful not to burn myself and have to pause to let it cool a bit.
