A large round barrel brush is a must when drying my hair. The larger barrel gives a great blow out for my long, thick hair .
The Body and Bounce one from Goody's Amp It Up line has been a great discovery. I had been using an even larger sized one from a more expensive brand but it didn't end up having as good a thermal barrel .
This has worked to give my hair much more curl , volume and smoothing while the barrel's heat helps hold the style in place. The nylon bristles on the 1 1/2 inch brush have been easy on my hair and I haven't had any tangling. Results you'd expect from an expensive brush at a lower price .
I don't have exact retail for this but you can find Goody at Target, Wal Mart, and drugstores.
