Bizarre beauty products are popping up everywhere, so it can be hard to differentiate between a novelty item that doesn’t really do much and a true holy grail addition to your daily routine. This new product, like many making their way stateside, is from the land of super cool beauty: Japan. Like other Eastern beauty products, the Lucky Trendy 3D Bomb Curl Brush has a serious WTF factor. But once you get over the fact that it looks like a weapon, you’ll see that this is one impressive hairbrush.

Brit+Co’s production and styling lead Misty Spinney gave the brush a whirl and its power was undeniable. Not convinced? Take a look.

Flat hair getting you down?

Meet the 3D Bomb Curl Brush. This weird invention from Japanese brand Lucky Trendy is the secret to volumized hair. Sure, it looks a little like a sea urchin—but the spherical 360 design is what helps to shape your hair into your desired style.

Beauty editor Misty Spinney tried the brush to see if it really worked.

She started out by lifting the hair at the root to help set the foundation for volume.

Then she added the Bomb Curl Brush to the mix.

She used it as if it were a regular hairbrush, but found it to be a little bit of a struggle. Manipulating this weird little ball on your head, might feel awkward at first, but the results are so worth it.

Look at that volume!

Seriously, this miracle brush gave her cropped cut so much life!

We don’t know about you, but we’re convinced!
