I bought this some time ago, used it, then for some reason forgot about it. A few weeks ago I found it again and started using it, and I had multiple people at work mention how nice my hair looks! I haven't changed anything else about my hair care routine except now I finish off my blow-dry with this brush. It does have a slightly off scent if you smell it up close, but it's a minor detail. It is indeed volumizing, so you may also want a smaller brush to fix your fringe. Note: the quality of the handle is not the best, there's a layer of plastic that will eventually peel off, but this is easy to remove once it does start peeling.
