There is an overwhelming number of hair products to try. There’s shampoo, no-poo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, gel, and countless other goops to try. Then there’s the technology; the difference between a bad blow dryer and a good one is quite literally the difference between smooth, healthy-looking tresses and a tangle that requires a hat you can wear indoors. To make matters more complicated, not all tried and true products are good for everybody’s hair. A product for straight, fine hair often won’t do great things for your natural curls. Here are some products to consider.
Specifically made for curls. Amazon
If you have naturally curly hair, you’ll recognize how this dryer is specifically built to maintain your natural style. The 360-degree airflow on this quirky, hand-shaped diffuser is meant to be placed by your roots and will help keep your curls lifted and separated while drying. It’s a great solution if you’re looking for a way to quickly dry your curls without messing with their natural shape.
Won’t burn your locks. Amazon
If you frequently get your hair blow-dried, you’re probably familiar with the faint smell of something burning (your hair). The Dyson Supersonic hairdryer is meant to prevent damage to your hair from excess heat. You’ll notice the temperature on this machine isn’t as high or overpowering as it is on other hairdryers. Instead, Dyson’s digital motor V9 and Air Multiplier technology will let you dry your hair fast, as well as help you style it and avoid frizz. OK with dropping quite a bit of cash to get a flawless blow dry at home? You should also check out Dyson’s new AirWrap, which PopSci recently put on its Best of What’s New list.
