Sorry that happened to you. I bought a Conair same concept except 5 heat settings according to your hair thickness, 5 yr. ltd. warranty, easy to use. $26.99 at ULTA. Ceramic heat and comes in 4 different brush/barrel sizes. I have one inch. I have used it several times with no problem. My hair is medium texture so I only use 2nd setting (1st one is at the volume line).

Yikes!

What kind of hair do you have - fine, curly, color treated, bleached?

What heat setting did you use?

How long did you leave the tool on your hair?

I really like mine. I use it on lowest setting. I do wish I knew about the one that KatCat1 bought. I would have loved to spend less.

Here is the one she bought I believe. I have a 5.00 off coupon I got when I was in alta last time I think I might get this.

So sorry that happened to you. I tried mine today and like it, but my hair is short and fine and the barrel is too large. I'm sending back and hoping they'll come out with a 3/4".

I just received the Model No. from KatCat1's post: Conair Model No. BC2NWTP.

It is called: Infiniti Pro Nano Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Brush

I am also interested in getting one of these.

Just a thought after reading many posts on the subject - I wonder why these styling brushes get so hot since so many posters say they use theirs on the lowest setting. I wonder what kind of hair would require using the highest setting??

I ordered this assuming it would not work and I would have to return...but I LOVE IT! It works exactly like it did on TV and I have very fine, straight hair that it actually curled! I did use the lower temp setting as recommended for fine hair....did you use the right setting?

Does it smell like burning plastic? I have had that happen with most styling tools when they are new. For the first couple of times they have an awful smell that goes away.

Do these things spin? I remember having a styling brush years ago and the barrel spun.

I have the one that is listed in the above link. Not the same as the Perfector. Gets good and hot, but also hot to the touch. Can't put your hand on it the way you can the Perfector.

Are these styling combs any different than the ones that were around years ago? Does the ceramic tourmaline barrel make a difference? I used to use one when my hair was shorter, b/c a curling iron didn't work that great for me. Yes, they do get hot.

I received mine on July 30th and used it the next day. Halfway thru, the appliance just stopped working. Thank God I wasn't in a hurry to get out of the house that day! I gave it a rest....several rests, and used different outlets and it would never work again. I wanted to like this but it has to work in order for that to happen. In my opinion....it is made poorly. It certainly doesn't command the price Maria charges for it. I called CS and its going back with the Q paying the shipping. I was grateful for that. For the price, I would think twice ladies.

I have a question....Can you hold the Conair one like you can with the Perfecter? BTW the Perfector is hot. Maybe that's why mine stopped working? Not as hot as a curling iron(diffused by the plastic brushes) but nonetheless ...have to be cautious.

Got mine and I love it. My hair looks much more healthy (i.e. shiny).

I did notice a smell (plastic) the first time I used it. I am sorry OP about your bad experience...I am thinking yours had to be defective. (My hair is fine...and thin)

I have tried similar styling tools, but this one (for me) is by far the best.

LipstickDiva - No, this one does not rotate. I had one of those and it didn't work very well for me.

Thanks. I remember getting my hair so tangled around that rotating brush, I was hysterically crying because I thought it was going to have to be cut out. It took my mom almost an hour to untangle me! {#emotions_dlg.scared}

there is also a 20% off coupon, on website, for hair tool.

what did everyone think of the hair styling spray, that came with the tsv?

Thanks for the replies. I used the highest setting cause the curl would not stay in my paast shoulder length fine hair. It really did nothing-much prefer a curling iron. Easier for me to use.

My hair is what smelled like it was burned. Not the Perfector. All I could think of is it getting stuck in my hair and having to cut it out.

Just not for me. Sounds like it works better for shorter hair.

Had to practically cut it out of my hair!!! This can't go back fast enough. Used it exactly as demonstrated and shown in instruction book. My long fine hair got so tangled had to pull/cut what felt like A LOT of hair to get it out. When I tried it just on the very very ends, it gave the tiniest bit of curl, it was sort of why bother. Have had horrible luck with anything from this company, have to promise myself to never ever order any tool or product from them. I really don't think they know anything about long/fine hair. Tried to leave a review to warn others, but review system wasn't available on this product. Gee, wonder why? Michele

My baby fine straight hair is cut in a short layered bob, and the Perfector works well for me. I don't think I'd be as happy if my hair were longer. As it is, this is perfect for my needs. I'm using the lower heat setting.
