I just recently purchased a new hair drying tool that I’ve been loving so much it inspired me to share it along with my ride-or-die hair tools I’ve been using.
I’m sure you’ve seen posts floating around on this Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer and let me just tell you it as amazing as everyone says. I have very thin & extremely fine hair & I’ve tried everything to help volumize my hair. This hair drying tool does the trick! If you’ve ever wanted to blow out your hair on your own, now you can! I only use it on the low setting because it can get very hot. Every time I use this tool I get compliments on how shiny my hair is. I will note that the cord on this is quite short actually.
Next for curling I’ve been using this NuMe Magic Curling Wand for about 3 years & it is my ride or die. One of the features on this wand is that it turns itself off after its been sitting which I love, no worrying if you did or didn’t shut it off when you’re rushing out the door. It also allows you to control you heat which a lot of wands do not. There is no clamp & I just carefully wrap my hair around the titanium barrel. It does come with a heat-resistant glove, but personally I’ve never used it. My hair has a hard time holding a curl but this wand works every time for me.
Another great curling iron is the s1 beachwaver. You might think it’s strange that I have 2 curling irons on here, but they do very different things. This curling iron has a clamp & gives a more “beach wave” with its ceramic barrel. It does come with a learning curve because you don’t wrap the hair around the barrel yourself you clamp it and press the arrow for which direction you want your curls to go & this iron wraps it around for you. It has a nice little stand built in. With this curling iron you can also control the temperature & it has a self shut off after 30 minutes.
CHI & me are thick as thieves. We go wayyy back & I’ve always had really great luck with their straighteners. A straightener is kind of a straightener but I’ve never had any problems with mine & they’ve lasted for YEARS. It has a nice long cord, you can control the temperature & the newest version has the auto-shut off feature. (Mine doesn’t have this which tells you how long I’ve had it).
I also added my favorite hair products :
When you’re using heat on your hair always make sure to use a heat protector. My favorite is the 44 Iron Guard.
My favorite hair spray is the #28 Control Addict from REDKEN. They have different numbers for the level of hold. Higher the number higher the hold.
I spray my hair after the shower with this it’s a 10 miracle leave-in product it helps detangle your hair & gets rid of frizz better than ANYTHING! I have been using the it’s a 10 miracle leave-in product plus keratin.
I use Esquire’s Shaper to smooth fly aways & through my ends. It smells AMAZING. It’s actually meant for guys hair, but I swear by it. It’s a low shine.
My number 1 shampoo & conditioner duo is this one from ColorProof. Its mint & leaves a nice menthol cooling sensation & is super moisturizing.
One of my favorite shampoo & conditioner is Paul Mitchel’s Tea Tree its also great for moisturizing especially during the winter months.
Another favorite is Joico’s k-pak shampoo & conditioner. The K-pak is my favorite to use after dying my hair or when it’s feeling damaged.
